LIVE WEBCHAT
Wednesday, 30th November
12:00 PST / 20:00 GMT / 15:00 EST


Mark the final day of this month in your diaries, fellow FXhomers, for it is scheduled to host a rather special webchat. We're giving you an early warning on this because it's the day that all will be revealed: every little detail of our masterplan.

The live webchat is the place to be if you want to find out about the future of your products and FXhome.com, as we will be exclusively revealing full information regarding what we've been working on for the last few years.

People that come along will also be able to ask questions and get direct answers straight from the FXhome team. We've got some other announcements coming up soon, so there should be plenty to talk about!

The last two webchats were great fun and a brilliant way to get to know more of you. This is The Big One, so we hope to have an even better turnout. Clear your schedules, take the phone off the hook, tell your friends that you're busy - FXhome.com is the only place to be on November 30th.

We'll be posting more details on how to join and ask questions closer to the time. We hope to see you all there!

Don't forget the FXhome chatrooms are always open for idle banter, support questions and general discussion. Click here to jump in!

Great! I like these chats a LOT! Date marked in calender of life. This might be a bit far out, but could it possibly be about Chromy 2? ("The Big One" are in the Chromanator colours: Blue, Green and Red razz)

This sounds like it is going to be interesting, and I am sure it will be great. I have been rather busy recently, and have not been able to put much time towards FXhome, but with any luck, perhaps my schedule will open up a bit by then, and I will have enough time to stop in.

Can't wait to see.

Don't worry about it, the different time zones can be a tricky thing some times. I have done a quick check, and you are correct. your time zone is five hours behind that of the U.K. Which means it should be around 3:00 pm for you.

I have just found a site that can show you the exact time it is in a different time zone. It may be useful when trying to figure things like this out in the future. That can be found here.

Edit: Well, malones site looks pretty good as well. I wonder why I wasn't informed that he had posted? Maybe I just didn't pay enough attention. There you have irishcult, we both re-did the math for you, can't go wrong now...I hope lol.

Have fun in the chat.
Wizard.

Ah yes, FST, FXHome Standard Time.

No, it's GMT, which if you are Mountain Time in Utah (I'm guessing Utah is) I think it's -7, so It would be 7 hours earlier than the time they posted.
