So EST would be 21 - five rightt? Therefore 16 right?

A quick google would seem to confirm that yes. So probably, unless I'm miscalculating.

Handy, although unless I'm missing something it only allows you to convert between countries and GMT. Doesn't help much if you don't know the American time zones and want to convert.

I just realized I don't know what time the chat is in EST, anyone have any idea?

Countchocula: I suspect the lastest guess doesnt account for daylight saving.

it is defnitely 14.00 PT (according to the news item). Presuming that's Pacific time (where TFB are). That means:
15.00 MT (Denver)
16.00 CT (Chicago)
17.00 EST (New York)

I'd like TFB to answer the question Zelnick asked Talana:

"Hmm... What happens if I do this?"

Regarding the Melee with Fred and Paul... those of you who will play them, would you post some replays too?

I know what to ask!

Ask them if they have thought about or if they have been approached by anyone about doing a port to Xbox Live Arcade!     :O : O:O :

Then if it does well (which it would), they can use that as reason for uh..   that company to let them make a sequel like they want!

I just realized I don't know what time the chat is in EST, anyone have any idea?

To put the date-time question to rest, it is:

14:00 PDT (Pacific Daylight-savings Time) = 21:00 UTC = 17:00 EDT (Eastern Daylight-savings Time)

If you really want to know what time it is in EST, that would be 16:00 EST  Wink

Here's something I've been wondering about:

Judging by screenshots of early versions such as this (with a cloaked flagship, which IIRC was scrapped for not being cool enough) or this (which looks like a completely different plot!), SC2 went through quite a few major changes during its development. How would SC2 have differed from the game we know and love if you'd decided to go through with your earlier ideas?

Less then 12 hours now!  I can't wait; I'm so excited.  I think that popcorn and beer will make a nice combination for this event... Grin  Sit back, relax, and watch the Star Control Gods send messages to us fans, and we will learn something, and leave with a sense of enlightenment.  I'm so grateful and pleased that they were able to take time from their busy schedule to do this.

FYI: You can now also use the web IRC client at http://uqm.stack.nl/irc/ to login in #uqm-tfb.
Note that not all browsers work well with it; some disconnect after 10 to 15 minutes. So I suggest that you test in advance whether it works for you, or use a local IRC client.

Edit: typo fix

I actually suspect the dialog options in the second screenshot are placeholders.
