Sunday Skype voice chats every week

Postby Niner » Thu May 05, 2011 12:54 pm

For a while now we have had a Sunday Chat by way of Skype. It costs nothing to use Skype. All you need is a voicecam which, if you don't already have one, you can get for $20 or so that will work just fine. Talking beats typiny any day. We do have to know you want to participate and have you in the contact list. PM me with your Skype handle and I can add you to the list. If I see by your Skype online light that you are online during chat time I'll give you the call.

The chat is at 1 pm CST and 8pm GMT, since we have an international membership and because of a need to to arrange a time that works for both the US and Western Europe.

A time for Australia and the US or Australia and UK could be arranged if anybody wants it.

Going to miss tonight guys, sorry. My computer is handling a very delicate data transfer of about 400Gb of data from an old external HD to a newer one and I don't want ANYTHING to screw up as it's taken mne an hour to get it started and it still have 4 hours to run.
Behave yourselves :loco: :loco:

I'm sorry, for me it's always a challenge to talk to someone in a to me foreign language, one is ok and more participants soon gets a no-go circus to me. I don't mind a skype talk but do prefer a one to one.

I finally have the gear but am still struggling to use it . My youngest son and computer wizz says that I bring new meaning to the term 'computer illiterate'. :D

We had a video group chat today. I think this is a new Skype feature . It used to be you had to pay for group chat video but it looks like, at least for now, they have fallen in line with Google Plus and some other services and group chat video is free.

You forget Holland, Duncan. However... Dutch Mosin seems to have gotten lost and we haven't seen or heard from him in a long while.
