How about dual meetings on weekends: Sat 10am GMT,
and Sat 11pm GMT?  The first for East-GMT, and the
second for West-GMT.  Sat 11pm GMT would be Sat 5pm
CST, and Sun 9am my time.

Well, I've been one of those lucky people who work Saturday evenings. But this may be changing soon...i.e., 2300GMT is fine for this Saturday.

My ideal time right now would be ~1800GMT Saturday, but this may not provide enough skew for the rest of the world.

 * PAWS allows us longer timeouts and large windows, so once implemented
 * ftp to mars will work nicely.
