So the general meeting time will be around UTC 4:00 Friday / Saturday, which converts to 9 PDT, 10 MDT, 11 CDT, and 12 EDT across the United States. Convert this to your local time if you're outside of the US.
This thread will hold a compilation of each meetup at the end of the weekend, and a proposed time / day for the next meetup if the general meetup of Fridays / Saturdays of UTC 4:00 does not work for the majority of participants. Disclaimer: If you're bringing any illegal ideas with you, keep them to yourself. You'll be warned or be removed from the meetup.
