Into the Black

Things seem pretty quiet, so I'll make this update early. I've been thinking about comments in answer to last night's question about update schedules. Obviously time changes happen all around the globe, but on some level does it make more sense for the first update of the day to go live at midnight on the west coast, which would be 3:00 am EST?

You never answered the question though. Does the system have a timer, or are you just looking for excuses to stay up late?!
Pay attention, you fool! Mr_t

I liked your previous update schedule better.

I don't know, but something about midnight updates make me feel like all news is yesterday's news.

I would just update randomly myself, as most of your visitor's probably visit randomly themselves.

Yeah, but IIRC the times were very few and far between ....

That would be ideal. But as it's already been said, I just love the fact that you post 365 days of the year. And in tribute to Thanksgiving, it's one of the many things I'm thankful for...

IIRC Frans posted in a thread a day or two back that it could be (and was) automated so that Blue was not staying up until all sorts of unpleasant hours.


As for my input, as long as I have my daily update before I go to work (6:30 EST) I'm happy. The nightly update tends to get lost on me, since it goes up after I'm in bed--but that's alright, I've learned to scroll down a bit more during my morning read.

Yeah, post whenever daily. If you need a break, then so be it (would be nice to tell us in advanced).

Blue if it's easier for you do it whenever then do it whenever, personally midnight east coast time works well for me.

I think I speak for most of us as we don't care when you post, as long AS you post

From my perspective I'm just happy that you're providing this service to the online community. If there's no fresh fodder available to read when I check in, I'll just *gasp* try again later in the day.

Blue, just post whenever. It's YOUR site. Don't lose sleep, stress out, etc. I haven't posted on AQFL for two days so far.

Nope. Why update when most people are sleaping? I used t owork a graveyard shift and I still wouldn't think that's a good time for updating.

Update after you have breakfast. Having an exact schedule ain't necessary.
