So what do you do when you want to setup an online meeting with a person on another part of the world? Scheduling sucks. I just found this little gem: It's the online meeting planner. It lets you enter 2 or more places around the world where the meeting is to take place, and set the required meeting date. I put in Los Angeles and Tel Aviv. You then get this (partial paste).

Obviously from this table I can deduct that the best time for both parties would be around 8 AM LA time(if I were a regular working man). However, since I'm self employed, this could easily move into the 9-10 AM time slot where I can sit back and relax with a nice cup of coffee in front of my machine having my important chat.
Ain't that cool?
