    According to my watch, its been 2 weeks since anything has been said about an online meet up. You guys/gals still want to do this? I do.

    (Not mad, just wondering)

    Sorry guys. I've been off looking after a sick family member and just got back this week. Then I'll be out of town from the 30th until the 10th. It looks like AOL will be our best bet. (Most people have an account, software is easy to use for group chat) We already have folks who posted their availabiity so I think we should schedule a few sessions based on that. The time commitment in particpating should be minimal. I would normally volunteer to schedule the first series but I have to focus on finishing up on things for work before leaving town.

    Jedi9181 - Would you be willing to set up the first series of these? We do not look like a large group but i know how easy it is to forget attending these so if we have a few to choose from we'll bound to get everyone covered. Depending on how people feel about posting their "Instant Messener" accounts maybe we could send you ours via a private message via this board. This way you could setup the AOL chat room to allow only those names that we give you. I don't mean to dump this "responsibility" on you but you seem to be motivated to keep this going and I think we need that. Even if only two people meet up on-line it will be better than reading "static" text here in our CT forum. Just a thought....and thanks to the guys & gals who replied to this posting.

    Ok, sure I can do that.

    Couple of people have said when is good for them. So PM me with your AOL SN and when is good for you and We'll Get This Party Started. I'll give this a week so to give everyone a chance to respond.

    Peace.

    Sorry guys/gals. I will not be able to attend. My wife received a dinner invitation yesterday for 06:30PM tonight. I couldn't exactly say "We can't go until after 07:30PM...I have a chat to attend." Have a good time with it tonight. Post a trans-script and/or share your thoughts on how you thought it went.

    These things are to be expected...don't despair. Thanks to EndorRebelScum & Jedi9181 for going ahead anyway. It is a start...there will be others. I would assume we all have the same time constraints as we did last time. I don't recall hearing from LARGE before. Maybe we could try for 07:00PM this Sunday (17-Jul-2005) What do you think?

    Welcome LARGE. See you on chat this Sunday (19:00 or 07:00PM EST: What ever you find easier) Maybe there will be a poll setup before hand to discuss our name.

    Last Night I goofed and forgot about all of us meeting on AOL. My relatives from TX were up and totally spaced on the time. Again I'm sorry. Hopefully next Sunday nothing comes up.

    Peace.

    They are probably about as good as our chats in one of the yahoo groups I am in. We have chat set-up for every Friday and Sat night and the only time people really show up is during the winter time. If we want to talk we usually just go to Yahoo IM and do it that way.
