If we choose to meet more regularly, then a one hour later start would be more appreciated if it is not too much of an inconvenience to APAC TC members. That being said, I do typically get up early, just not 0500 early that often.  

One hour later (1400 UTC) also works for me.

 > +1 I think there is a point where we need to recognize there is a time and place for everything, and some of those long running complex conversations might not be well suited for what would essentially be "review business status" meetings.  If we have any clue that something is going to be a very long and drawn out discussion, then I feel like we should make an effort to schedule individually. __________________________________________________________________________
