Where are you all based?

This is more of a social discussion then a serious one so feel free to ignore me if you like

I have noticed that during the day there is less activity on the dev forums and I've come to assume that most of my fellow devs (that's you folks) are in the US and asleep. So I thought I would conduct a bit of a poll and see where you are all from! Who knows maybe you'll find a local dev you can collaborate with in the future...

So I'm from New Zealand down there at the bottom of the world and live in a city called Palmerston North which is the 6th largest city in New Zealand (I think) but doesn't even crack the 100,000 mark so pretty teeny by international standards We are around 11 hours ahead of London and 19 hours ahead of the US West Coast cities.

I'm located in a suburb off of Toronto, Canada.

My igloo is quite elaborate, actually.

IMAK Creations is a family business based in Austin, Texas.
I guess we are 17 hours behind Palmerston North. So, do you have to wait until Tues afternoon to see the new weekly featured apps?

Developer at IMAK Creations, creator of ColorTilt and other lesser known apps, like That Ain't It!

Hahaha yeah we do! And all our sales reporting is out of whack too. We get the reports at about 9:15 each evening and it's the sales for the day before. And I still haven't figured out the time zones for our Pinch Media tracking :P

So far we're 50% US devs and 50% other! brendons note how careful I was to indicate that Canada is different to the US? No doubt many of you have seen the Flight of the Conchords episode where the grocery stall dude mistakes the Conchords for Australians? So, so realistic!
