It's all fun and games until one of your appointmets is specified in rfc2550 format, and the meeting room is on a big ship crossing the international date line on the same day daylight savings time changes for the ship's country while a new timezone is voted into effect. Meanwhile the other meeting room is a videoconfrerence between the international space station and a ship travelling at close to the speed of light, but the real twist is the two meetings don't actually have anyone in common!



Also the meetings are in different rooms with entirely different attendee lists, so whether they conflict or not is irrelevant.


Unless there is some other mutable state that they both interact with that may cause a race condition. :)


Also keep in mind Heisenberg while traveling along state lines.
