Dear Nerdie, there's this girl I've talked to on AfterNet, and I like talking to her. The biggest problem is that I'm on, quite literally, the other side of the world, so when I'm popping on IRC after dinner to chat, she's waking up for the day. What should I do, Nerdie? Regards, Anonymous
Dear Bottom of the World, If you really like talking to her that much, then you should set aside some time you know that she will be on and devote it just to chatting with her. Whether it be waking up a little earlier or going to bed a little later. Unfortunately dear nerdie cannot shift the time zones to make this one better. All you can do is make the effort or ultimately move on.
