I had the privilege of meeting up with @Gr3iz and his better half yesterday. We enjoyed a great lunch here in PA at restaurant that @managed accidentally picked out for us. We mentioned taking a photo... but somehow forgot to do so. I hope we can meet up again soon!

After some discussion, we thought it might be helpful to switch back to doing the 1-hour of text chat room each week, followed by the Zoom video chat for games. That might encourage others to join at least for the first hour, especially those who may be uncomfortable with the video chat/games, or unable to participate due to technical limitations, or joining in from work. :) I'm looking at you, @Cookiegal @Couriant @RT @DaveA @Lockeyp ... and feel free to tag others in your reply below. It'd be nice to see a few more people in, even if only for the text chat room.

Again, our next chat will be Wednesday, August 4th. We'll do chat room from 2:00 PM Eastern and then start the Zoom and live games around 3:00 PM Eastern. I think I'm on Computer American that week, so I'll likely have to end at 4:00 sharp. Hope to see you all there! :)

It was great meeting you in person Mike! Thanks Allan for choosing that restaurant (or whatever you might call it over there)! Mike said you were going to pick up the tab, too. Much appreciated! ;-)

I'm thinking Chuck (@cwwozniak) might be able to do a text-based chat. Maybe?

Looking forward to seeing everyone next Wed.!

Glad you guys were able to meet up Mark and Mike. I have neighbours who are brothers who are Mark and Mike also. :ROFLMAO:

It was such a fun time meeting Mike and Heather back in 2006. I'm hoping to be able to do that again in the near future.

BTW, can an iphone be used as a webcam for the purpose of a Zoom session?

Interesting. I'll check it out. Do you know if it can then be project to a computer screen? It looks like it would only be on the phone but that's OK too.

It would be great to see you Cookie! As I've told Mike and Allan, I felt close to them, having "met" them through Zoom. I feel I know them better. Ean and MisterEd, too. Not sure about casting to a monitor, I don't do Apple ...

Sorry, I'm not sure if there is a (simple) way to do that... I suppose you could join in twice -- once for viewing on the monitor and once for the phone as a camera. You must just have to mute and turn down the volume on one of the devices. ;)

I'll see if I can figure it out and then Mike perhaps we could do a test run.

Mike and All,
I do see the reminders and even my Outlook reminds me.
But, I seem to have others things to do at this time and forget to drop by.
I will try to but no guarantees :giggle: 🥶

Yes. You can install zoom on your phone and then if Mike sends you the link for zoom via email you can use that and it should open without having an account

Thanks James. I'll give that a try. :)
