poll: start time for next meetings (follow DST or not)

Daylight Saving Time isn't the same in US/Europe/Asia: US starts early March, Europe catches up end of March, and in China the clock isn't changed at all.

So the start of the conference call may shift, depending on where you live and whether we keep US time, European time or Chinese time constant.


The purpose of this poll is setting the start time for the next conference calls in the upcoming months (so not only for the calls in March), until further notice.


Today: LA = 06:30, NY = 09:30, BXL = 15:30, BEJ = 22:30

March: LA = 06:30, NY = 09:30, BXL = 14:30, BEJ = 21:30
April-...: LA = 06:30, NY = 09:30, BXL = 15:30, BEJ = 21:30

2) Keep European time constant, meaning:
March: LA = 7:30, NY = 10:30, BXL = 15:30, BEJ = 22:30
April: LA = 6:30, NY = 9:30, BXL = 15:30, BEJ = 21:30
