Hi Yasmeen,
Nice to see your name in my inbox.  Congratulations on growing the 
alumni community so quickly - 265 is quite the number!  I'll try to make 
it to the graduation. 

A quick question, I went to http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ to 
determine the time difference, and it tells me GMT is not the same as UK 
time at the moment, which they refer to as "British Summer Time."  If 
I'm connecting from Washington, DC, would I need to get to Diplomacy 
Island for 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. my time?

Hope all is well,
