*edit: 06/05/2021 : another virtual meet! 6pm East coast US
 
maybe get a little more participation this time (not that it wasn't fun catching up with the OG's)?

on a similar note, what are some decent and cheap mics and cameras? could do it up better in the shop than last time. Thinking a little later start might be easier for some folks? or was that good?

I thought it was a solid idea from the Jay-rod meister, I'm not trying to steal his thunder if he wants to host again.. I just wanna get the ball rolling. Could make it monthly or bi-monthly depending.

I’d be down to jump on a hangout.
My go-to for meetings is a gaming headset with a Britney mic. It looks dumb, but highly effective.

mo5005 05-05-2020 06:07 AM

that would be awesome!

vwbusman66 05-05-2020 11:54 AM

I'm down.

Harlard 05-05-2020 12:05 PM

I'm in

Dan 05-05-2020 12:06 PM

If I can do it on my Ipad mini, i'm in

Alex Buchka 05-06-2020 01:48 PM

Why not. My day job consists mostly of zoom meetings with other nerds so I might as well keep riding that wave.

RvolvoR 05-06-2020 02:38 PM

Yep, I'll drink on camera again.

propav8r 05-06-2020 07:41 PM

I'm in. My best webcam find thus far is the Logitech C920.

Edit// they're like $150 now lolwtfbbq

doucheNozzle 05-06-2020 09:35 PM

Yup

linuxman51 05-12-2020 10:10 PM

I can't. My wifi doesn't like Youtube these days, let alone live video.

propav8r 05-13-2020 08:54 AM

Free zoom is usually (unless you get that free bonus sometimes) limited to 40 minutes.

Wanna give Google Hangouts a try? It's free, no time limit.

mikep 05-13-2020 11:55 AM

We use google meet for school meetings, if people stay muted it is ok, then when a person turns on their mic they appear. Better on a phone, 4 people show at once. I never figured out how to show more than one on the laptop, and I have issues with both. One lacks a camera, one has no audio out.

I recommend facebook messenger chat. The audio is clean and it has silly-ass effects.

I has work Zoom account. PM outgoing.

linuxman51 05-14-2020 10:07 AM

and Harland is gonna host. Woohoo! I need to dig up my old phone and install zoom on it, I'll have it sitting out in a "general area"

tequila_gundam_no_chaser 05-14-2020 10:30 AM

I have actual decent camera gear (gimbals, drone, SLR and some lights/tripods).. LMK, I may be able to talk a friend into coming with me and shooting. I wanna shoot something lol

Are you planning on posting the links/numbers?

Harlard 05-14-2020 12:23 PM

I gave the info to Kenny.

vwbusman66 05-14-2020 07:21 PM

Kennayyyy

linuxman51 05-15-2020 09:38 AM

it's up

foggyjames 05-17-2020 05:27 PM

I'd be down for getting in on the next one. Time zone should work. I'll see if any of the rest of the UK posse are interested.

cheers

James

Harlard 05-17-2020 09:42 PM

I'd be down to host again bar getting an angry email from IT about abuse of company tools

mikep 05-17-2020 10:27 PM

Sorry I missed it. I went to chicken happy hour.
But I had a zoom meeting thursday, so I know how to do that now.

I can host on our account if you wanna split the risk of the angry email.

linuxman51 05-19-2020 10:02 AM

If we wanna keep doing these things I'll spring for an account, it'd be worth it to me not to risk anyone's employment.. my main concern was co-opting Jarred's idea. A bit better organization (at least on my part) would also probably be a good thing next time. I'll try not to wait until an hour after the start time to strap the car down :lol:

vwbusman66 06-15-2020 02:47 PM

We gonna do another soon?

linuxman51 06-16-2020 09:25 AM

sure

Wren 06-22-2020 09:44 PM

Not sure how missed this last one....

linuxman51 06-23-2020 08:15 AM

lets do something in july. I've got 47 irons in the fire right now, and by mid july I'll only have about 65.

foggyjames 07-02-2020 04:59 AM

I'm still down for this unless it's going to be at like 10pm local time for you guys!

cheers

James

Swedbrick 07-15-2020 06:52 AM

Me and my brother would also like to join in, assuming somewhat euro friendly times as well:-P

later times would work better for yall, right? errr, well, maybe.

to do something conducive for yall (which I am not at all opposed to, so don't take it that way), we'd need to get it rolling in the middle of the afternoon/noon local time. that's a bit of a challenge for a number of reasons, but we can see... it's also hotter than the hinges of hell in the shop at that time of day, so dyno type shenanigans might be limited (of course, it was hotter than the hinges of hell tonight at 8pm too, so, there may simply be no love for that right now hahaha)

Swedbrick 07-17-2020 06:00 PM

Ah yeah I can imagine, from a random calculator it figures that 10pm in Alabama is about 5am here, and about 4am in the UK.

So maybe somewhere in between 10pm - 2am Alabama time? If I'm going to mess with my sleeping rithm I might as we have some morning beer:lol:

mikep 07-17-2020 06:02 PM

UK guys are 5 hrs after me (east coast US). So when itís 10pm here itís 3am there.
Youíre central, 1 hr earlier than me. But if they donít do DST, youíre currently 5 ahead of them.

Swedbrick 07-31-2020 05:50 AM

Bump?

foggyjames 08-20-2020 06:46 AM

Hey guys. Sorry, ducked out for a while there.

We do work calls with the US quite regularly, but obviously that's during the day. I think mid-evening (US) would work fine for me - I'm usually up until at least midnight anyway, so 7-8pm with you guys would be OK for me.

cheers

James

redblockpowered 08-21-2020 10:43 PM

I'm intrigued.

Fast740fromSC 08-22-2020 07:12 PM

Bump?

linuxman51 08-23-2020 01:55 PM

so when yall wanna do it

linuxman51 08-23-2020 03:01 PM

for rizzle, yall figure out a good day of the week and good overall time, and we can make this happen. hell we can make it a monthly thing

Iím in for whenever someone with more tb credibility sets a time.

mikep 08-27-2020 07:55 AM

If you set a time (say the first or the second saturday of each month) to meet, we can post a sticky.
East coast 5pm sat. would mean west coast would get on at 2pm, UK at 10pm.
YMMV, paint the centers gold, yadda.
Discussion?

redblockpowered 08-27-2020 02:59 PM

Seems workable.

yep. saturdays are probably as good as any. so... first saturday, 6pm central?

edit: wait, I did the math wrong. 4pm central sounds too early though. 5pm central would be 6 eastern an 11 uk? is that reasonable for the overseaser's?

mikep 08-29-2020 08:49 PM

UK guys?
11pm ok?

foggyjames 09-01-2020 08:51 AM

I'm a night owl...fine by me!

I will notify the other Brit-wankers...

cheers

James

mikep 09-01-2020 02:42 PM

So: This Saturday, 5th of September, 2020.
23:00 GMT, 6pm US East coast, 3pm US West coast.
I will update the title.

linuxman51 09-01-2020 05:57 PM
