That should, in theory, do it -- I don't really know; almost by definition, I'm asleep when that happens. Back in the day, I tried a number of ways to make the positioning less annoying for those that live a fair ways away from other monks. I'm afraid I didn't find anything that worked well. bart could recreate the antipodian view; it's probably no longer prohibitively CPU-expensive. Other then that, it's just a matter of waiting until there's enough weight of aussies and kiwis to pull the viewpoint in your direction, I'm afraid.
That, or register a bunch of sockpuppet accounts.
