Maybe if it was scheduled for like, one day every week or something at a time convenient for the US and UK users. So, pick a time for both countries and once people get the hang of it it could be like a weekly meet up for those of you who want to get involved.
I know there are other countries represented on here, but the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Australia and I don't think they'll want to chat. Because they're almost certainly still crying over The Ashes...
Yes that sounds like a good idea. I just like the name #rainbowcafe if everyone else would, and Europnet seems as good a place as any to do it. It mainly hosts non-English language chatrooms so you'd be unlikely to get random people popping in.

Not a bad idea.
10PM Greenwich Mean Time would be 5, 4, 3 and 2PM for the four mainland US time zones, whereas 2AM GMT would be 9, 8, 7 and 6PM. One could argue that Saturday may be more convenient for the US residents living in the Mountain and Pacific time zones as it's outside of a working week and there's more of chance of a larger conversation.
It may even work for Australia, as well, if they're up early. 10PM GMT (Saturday) would be 8, 7:30 and 6AM (Sunday), whereas 2AM GMT would be 10, 11:30 and 12 noon (Sunday).

If anyone ever wants to revive the chatroom through IRC, this version of Chatzilla is good. It usually runs within Firefox (or Seamonkey if anyone's heard of it), but this one is standalone. chatzilla.rdmsoft.com/xulrunner/
