Title: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 5th, 2020 at 7:24pm
So I'm pacing through my house trying to work up the motivation to gather all my sling stuff and begin the prep work (which I'm decidedly NOT fond of lol) and it occurs to me ya know... we live in a post covid world... there's nothing at all keeping us from doing zoom meetings is there?† That's right gentlemen. A zoom meeting. I'm throwing the gauntlet down here. Anyone interested? Probably best if we have more than two lol. If not just know I will still love you all even if I give you the stink eye here from Texas.



Just so we are clear on the severity of a good stink eye. Make your choice MEN.

Zoom, eh?  Ok. Why not. Of course you were probably hoping to rope in someone who lives more than 3 hours away from you. You donít really need Zoom to give a fellow Texan the stink eye.

The fact that this hasn't occurred to any of us before now is a serious oversight. I'm in :D Finland should be far enough away. Of course one problem is we're going to start running into timezone issues but we can cross that bridge when we burn it.

Damn right sir!! I would love to chat with some fellow Slorgies. And see your different projects and stuff. As for bridges Iím pretty sure Ive got them all but if I missed one we could definitely burn it too. Some Ive burned even twice which I didnít know was possible.

NOOC- Well yes, we are relatively close if you donít take my laziness and your busyness into account. Also Iím reasonably sure with your profession that at least one of your children is a mandroid. Which terrifies me. But yes we should definitely get together some time and throw some rocks. I would love to actually have a fellow slinger to sling with even if just for a day.

Iíll wait a week and see if anyone else is interested. I would love to get a nice group together to tell stories and chat.

Yeah time zone is the thing to think about.
They do one on my bbq forum, but itís 5pm pacific time (I know I know, Americans have never worked out that there are other countries in the world and we all use a standard time measurement :-)

Which works out to about 10pm my time. Or dinner time.
Itís when my medication wears off and I start feeling like eating again.

So weíll either need it early afternoon for the yanks, either puts Mersa in the middle of the night or their middle of the morning, or late night for the yanks.
I lose track on the antipodes. I believe theyíre 9 hours ahead of the uk, or 11.
Quite whatís that equates to in us time - will take some working out :-)

Letís face it - itís you awkward buggers in North America with your 3 time zones that bugger things up.

We British invented time so if we could all work with GMT as the base point - it would make it easier to work out:whistle:

Letís list our time zones and we can go from there.

Iím at GMT: 0


Never done a zoom - But I have sorted it out for a few clients recently. And my new-to-me(old one my mate gave me) iPad Pro is a decent size for it.

Iím not an apple fan and for the  800 odd quid he originally paid for it, it was massively over priced. But for a freebie with neat fold out keyboard cover  - great little piece of kit :-)

Iíll go download zoom and have a play.

Title: Re: Ya know...
Post by Curious Aardvark on Nov 9th, 2020 at 7:35am
Iím all zoomed up† :-)

Stickied the thread and changed title to hopefully pull in more members.

Lets see what we get :-)

GMT -6 depending on daylight savings... but I also have an infant in the house... the fourth one in 6 years. Sleeping hours are a long lost concept, so my timezone is probably less relevant than most.

Title: Re: Ya know...
Post by Morphy on Nov 9th, 2020 at 2:51pm
Working on figuring out a time I can do this. Good to hear others are interested. Be aware that in Houston all Zoom meetings are clothing optional. But I will try to have a strategically placed sock.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by vetryan15 on Nov 9th, 2020 at 3:07pm
Gmt -5, but iam technology impaired so i shall see.

@Morphy that reminds me of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS concertnack in the late 90s. Nothing but tube socks

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by joe_meadmaker on Nov 9th, 2020 at 3:14pm
I would be interested if I'm available at the decided time.

I am also GMT -5.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 9th, 2020 at 3:39pm
Forgot to mention I am also GMT -6.

@Vetryan I definitely remember that haha.  :D

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by JudoP on Nov 9th, 2020 at 3:42pm
GMT 0

But I will be unable to do anything this week. Also I have unlimited zoom so we won't be stuck with the 40 min limit.

I'm going to try and get on Zoom tonight at 6am Monday GMT (12 am Central Standard Time)
If anyone is interested.   :thumb:  I'll post the link later. (I hope, never set up a Zoom meeting myself.) I'll be at the station so if I don't show assume I'm on a call.  ;)

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Kick on Nov 15th, 2020 at 10:40am
So for me (GMT +2) 8am? I think I can just about manage that. I may be half asleep (or 3/4 asleep...) but I can try :D

Who you kidding Kick you work in medical. You don't get sleep. Lol. That would be 2 am here? I think. I'll try to get on at 12am (my time). If I can't sleep or if I get a late call and I'm up anyways I'll jump on around 2am. I have the sock ready so should be good to go.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone

My bad you are correct sir.

Well, I may have jinxed myself. Busy day already and then some person drove down I45 with faulty brakes or something and sparked up grassfires all along the roadway for miles. So, so very awesome. I smell like I would taste good with barbeque sauce right now.

I really want to get on Zoom but the fates have deemed otherwise. I will try again next shift.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by NooneOfConsequence on Nov 16th, 2020 at 2:37am
Too bad. Normally I have a very precious sleep window between midnight and 4AM CST, but somehow my family picked up a virus (a cold... not coronavirus) in spite of the lockdown, and each of my kids has taken turns screaming throughout the night. I am wide awake... although I probably would not have been the most engaging conversationalist under the circumstances. 

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 16th, 2020 at 8:09pm
Ok, tomorrow is the plan if anyone is interested, same time, same place. If all goes well I will be sitting in the fire station talking to someone in a different part of the country/world. Be there Gents if you can! I promise to be dressed-ish.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Kick on Nov 17th, 2020 at 8:14am
Same time? I unfortunately have a morning shift tomorrow so I will already be hard at work. I'll have to catch the next one.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 17th, 2020 at 9:24am
Ya the time zone thing is tough but eventually this should work. Lot cheaper than a plane ride too. Can't wait to take part in a slinging competition via zoom.  ;D

Ya but I'll try to be on. At work seems to be the best time to do it. Just depends on the calls.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by vetryan15 on Nov 17th, 2020 at 12:46pm
I will try to join in at some point, i just gotta figure out zoom. Never did it,  but did hear that on Thanksgiving and black Friday,  zoom will be allowing unlimited zoom calls for the holidays.  I heard on the radio, so might want to check that out to confirm.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 17th, 2020 at 1:25pm



This will be me tonight. If that doesn't make you all want to join I don't know what will.  12 am Central Standard Time. I'll pop on and see if anyone is coming. Maybe wait ten minutes if no one shows I'll try again another day. :thumb:

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by vetryan15 on Nov 17th, 2020 at 2:28pm
I wont be awake. My bedtime is 9am. Usually iam so tired i am asleep before that. Maybe try something in the evening littlee bit earlier. Lol.

Well Gents I'm not going to make it to 12 so I'll post the link here and hop on. Join me if you want. I'll wait for a bit to see if anyone comes.  :)

Passcode-  c8NB6V

Meeting id- 833 9943 7504

Not sure exactly what is needed but there it is.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 19th, 2020 at 7:46pm
I would love for this to work. At least a little better than the old chat function we had here.  ;D

I'll hop on at 10 pm and 11pm CST tonight (3 and 4 hours from now) if anyone is bored, drunk or otherwise looking to chill. If you are on the fence just remember the rules for drinking clearly state that if at least one person in the group is after 5pm drinking is fair game for the whole group.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Kick on Nov 19th, 2020 at 7:48pm
Probably shouldn't have stayed up to almost 3am. I might have been able to make 11pm CST otherwise...

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 23rd, 2020 at 1:28pm
At work which is often the best time for me to try this since I typically don't sleep great. I'll try to get on again at somewhere between 10PM -12AM CST if anyone is available. Which is 4am to 6am GMT. Not super surprised this has not been done since it's so hard to coordinate a group even when everyone lives in the same time zone. As always if I am not there I am probably on a call.† Anyways hope to see ya there.† ;)

I would, if only it was an hour or 2 earlier. Since ilive in a tiny home, my gf sleeping 8 ft from me, while on a phone call. She wouldn't be too happy

Shoot what would be an ideal time for you Vet?

Post by vetryan15 on Nov 23rd, 2020 at 3:35pm
An hour or hour and a half earlier.  I am an hour ahead of ya. I was just informed that last time we tried zoom, it didnt work. So i will attempt to work on it tonight, to see if i can get it working

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 23rd, 2020 at 4:16pm
Sounds good man. Like  I said I'm at the station so this isn't ideal but I guess if you don't hear from me you'll know why.

Not at all. I really enjoyed the conversation lol. I got that look from my boss that said "I need to tell you something now". Hence my rather abrupt departure. My bad bro.  ;D ;D ;D Hope y'all didn't take that the wrong way. Turned out to be nothing but ya had to go double quick just in case lol.

I understand.  Its all good. Rather be safe then sorry. But i definitely enjoyed it. We should do it again, and try to get more people involved. Gllad i was able to do the maiden voyage of slinging.org zoom.

Post by Morphy on Nov 24th, 2020 at 8:46am
For me my schedule is very weird. I work a lot of hours each pay period but technically only about 10-11 days a month. Weird I know. So it's easy for me to try and make it work but realistically for most it's going to be quite difficult. But I couldn't agree with Vet more. I want to meet my slinging.org family. Either on Zoom or down at Mallorca.

Title: Re: Zoom meeting please register you timezone
Post by Morphy on Nov 25th, 2020 at 1:48pm
I'm going to try to jump on tonight if we can work out a time that works. (And if they don't drop a call on us)

If anyone is interested let me know and what time is good a d I'll try to make it work.
