I signed up with Skype as 'bearleealive', my username on most forums. All tests seem fine.

Jeff, that sounds like a lot of fun. Guess that's 10PM EST, so I might be able to make it :- )

Re: Way off topic - it's just me having fun Meet the Members.

Well.. looks like we'll have to delay the first Meet the Members show.. After contemplating how everything went on the test went, I thought it best to get the kinks worked out a tad more..

And after all the "hoopla" from a previous thread.. I think we should change the show name from "meet the members" to "meet the Escapee's" ..

If anyone out there would like to be a tester.. let me know.. I'm shooting to have the wrinkles out by the end of next week..

Sorry for the delay..

Re: Way off topic - it's just me having fun Meet the Members.

A separate little mystery -- I tried to get into this discussion this evening, not knowing that there'd been a postponement -- and when I clicked the link in the email and logged in, a window came up saying I couldn't log in because my last previous post had been less than 120 seconds previous. Very odd, because I hadn't posted anything for weeks . . . Can anyone hack in and get our IP addresses & use them illegitimately?

Anyway, I finally gave up after numerous attempts, logged onto the forum itself, and found out about the postponement. Since we don't have a Webcam or Skype (have had trouble with Skype generating the mother of all feedback howls when we tried to use it a couple of years ago), would there have been something like instant messaging via typing?

Really interested; any comments would be welcome.

Re: Way off topic - it's just me having fun Meet the Members.

Sorry that the postponement didn't get to you in time..

The other thing is a tad strange.. Your IP address doesn't really have to do with the logging on to the system.. with a couple caveats (spam messaging ..) My best guess is some sort of "cookie" or "history cache" on the browser side....with a posting of some sort..shouldn't have affected the login process unless somehow the system thought you were already logged on and when you hit return or enter it was still in the post mode.... who the heck knows..

As for the meeting.. I did some more testing and things are way more solid.. just waiting for one more piece of software to arrive and we should be good to go..

The "show" will have hopefully 2 elements to it a "Live feed" that everyone will see and a "chat room" to ask questions.. So to answer your question.. Yes there will be instant messaging via typing...

If I can get my act together I might be able to pull off additional video question via skype as well.. I'm keeping my fingers crossed..almost have it figured out..

Re: Way off topic - it's just me having fun Meet the Members.

Ok.. I think I'm there.. or at least as close as I'm going to get.. Just need to make a modification to the Forum and we should be good to go..

Quick question is the weekend better than weekday? Since will be doing it on Pacific Time what time would kind-of work for everybody..
