Title: HAF Virtual Meetup
Post by: Whitney on February 18, 2012, 06:34:51 AM
The technology exists...so why not?

I think Skype would be the best method since it allows for unlimited people (as far as I know, so far haven't broken it) and has the option for video (though we won't require video).  Feel free to suggest other free alternatives (remembering that we have people from all over the world).

To keep it simple...let me know what days/times you will be available using central standard time.

Can you name a major city in the time zone please as time difference calculators tend to work from city to city.

EDIT: Chicago works.

The USA CST is 6 hours behind the UK. So if the meet happens mid to late evening in the US that will be midnight to the early hours in UK/Europe. But if it's mid day 'ish on a Saturday or Sunday it'll be early evening on this side of the pond.

Date wise I can fit in any time.

My work is unfortunately erratic, but flexible -- and with a kid who doesn't sleep very regularly, my time's all over the place. So I'd be happy to join you guys whenever a time is picked, if I can!

That sounds like it might be a good way to do it.

May I suggest that anybody interested, and that would include me, send their Skype address to a mod or admin. We'll keep a list in staff forum and when the date and time are fixed we will pm all the people who provide their Skype address with all the other Skype addresses.

Don't worry you couldn't possibly be as much of a disappointment as me.  :D

But seriously I have been to many atheist meetings with people I have met on-line and some people just don't match up with your expectations. Some people can be very erudite and sparkly on-line but in real life quite dull ( and visa versa). Mainly because they are good with the written word where they have time to gather their thoughts but aren't as spontaneous in a real-time context. It's almost like you're meeting a different person.

The other big issue can be perceiving somebody as flirty on-line who really isn't in real life. They're happy to flirt in the relative safety and anonymity of cyber space, where body language is invisible, but in real life they just aren't that way inclined. This dichotomy can lead to serious repercussions where there is a serious miss-match of expectations.  

I used to consider myself a good judge of character. It turns out I am, in real life, but on-line I have made some real fuck-ups, trusting untrustworthy people and being far too open emotionally to needy people. In the past I used to think I had a lot of good friends on-line when in fact it was only a handful. And some of those 'friends' have turned out to be the most despicable people I have ever come across. But we live and learn.

Never invest more emotion in an on-line relationship than you are prepared to have thrown back in your face with derisive laughter added for good measure.

Please note your Skype address will be circulated to all those taking part in the virtual meeting.

Err, the only thing about Skype is that it seems to lag pretty badly if you have more than 3 people connected on one call.  At least that has been my experience attempting to Skype with family during the holidays.  I don't know how it would work with a big group of people, but of course there's no harm in trying.

Never tried it except one-to-one. Are you (or is anybody) aware of a better multi-user system?

Google+ has Hangouts - I've been on a couple with multiple video feeds that seemed to work ok.

Skype's good for me too.

Not sure on time/day, but will join if available...

If Skype crashes or lags badly, an alternate backup is Paltalk. http://www.paltalk.com/

I know that it works well, even in a chatroom of more than a couple dozen people. It works best if one person hosts the chat and lets others talk by acknowledging them when they select their little 'hand raised/want to talk' thing. Also you can type all you want in the chat window :) and Paltalk works with video too.

I never liked the idea to give a company my credit-card data for what supposed to be a free service. That is one of the reasons why I never joined Skype. Anyway, it looks like that you'd need a Skype Premium account for participating in group video calls.

Just for the record, you don't need to give Skype your credit card. :) I've used Skype for free in the past to communicate with students overseas, both video, and audio. I don't know about the group calls. I do know, though, that once you get more than 4 people in the room, it does start to lag a little bit due to the various net connections. Eh, I think it'd still be fun.

You are right. Skype no longer requests my credit card, as long as I stick to the freebies (which unfortunately excludes group calls).

I have used paltalk...the problem with it is that some of the ads contain viruses so you either have to have awesome antivirus software or use it on a computer you don't care about.  I have a netbook for that purpose.
Title: Re: HAF Virtual Meetup
Post by: Whitney on February 20, 2012, 12:39:43 AM
For skype, I've used it for group calls of up to 20 people (convention planning).  I didn't notice any lag but I'm also on a fiber optic connection and I think many of those calling in were on similarly fast connections.  I have not used it for group calls with people from overseas; but have had success with just one person from overseas.  Not sure about the video though; most people don't use it.  We also used it combined with people calling in via a conference line...via freeconferencecall.com (however that might be an expensive option for anyone calling in from out of area....which is why skype to skype is nice).

Google hangout would be a good alternative...I heard it was limited to 10 people; not sure if that is true.

I don't think it was ever decided where the meetup could be done.

1 Skype only allows group chats for users with premium accounts and may also be laggy.

2 Paltalk has virus issues.

3 Google only allows a maximum of 10 users in group chat.

Well, how many people would like to participate? There only seem to be a dozen or so people who've responded here. The 10 person limit on Google+ might not actually be that limiting when you account for everyone's availabilities/time schedules, etc. Those are my thoughts, anyhoo.

I'm on CST +6 with Melmoth and Guardian85 is on CST +7

Thus we need to do a mid day (US) on a Saturday or Sunday.
There are 11 people on the list but the probability of all of us all being available is very low so I suggest we all get on the Google system. Has anybody got experience of the Google system?

It's pretty easy.

The main person running the hangout needs to go to their G+ page and click on "Start A Hangout" on the right side.
Then you can add or remove people from the invite list, check your camera, mic, speakers and start the hangout.

As people join, you'll see them pop up (video if enabled).

Worked well the last time I was on it...

Works for me too.  I have a Google+ profile (although I think I've only signed in to it once) if that is the direction we end up going.  Or Skype, although it sounds like we would have to pay for that.  Does AOL or Yahoo still do chatrooms?  It wouldn't be video, but maybe we could create a chat room there for free?

My vote would be with Skype. I've used it in the background while playing Minecraft to talk to other people on the server. We couldn't get video - which is something you presumably have to pay for - but voices worked fine.

Also, I don't know how to use anything else...

It looks like we can get a group video call if one of us buys a "one day" premium Skype membership. It's only 4.99, so I don't mind doing it (it's less than I'd probably spend on a coffee, if we were all actually meeting in person anyway). If that's something people are interested in :)

Another FYI. For the group video to work, each person participating needs to have Skype 5.0 or higher. So, if you haven't upgraded Skype in a while, you may want to do that. It's free, but it could be another one of those pain-in-the-butt technical hick-ups if it isn't done beforehand. :)

Everyone needs version 5.0 of Skype or higher, but only one person needs to buy the premium membership for group chat to work for everyone.
Budhorse, your skype name is probably your best bet, since there should only be one user (you) with that name. :)

Yes. His Infernal Grayness ascended from the Clay Pit in which He dwells within the Gray Realm and was spotted at the meetup with half-dead video and text-only. It was probably due to His evil plans for dominating the Interwebs - that takes a lot of bandwidth.

After the 11th, The Asmo will be on fiber and thus, His connection is expected to improve. It may even be that the Voice of Asmo will let itself be heard then.

^^Haha, that would be awesome.  Asmo does a very convincing statue.   :P

Was lovely seeing all of you.  Siz was surprisingly slim and fit for being such a fat cat ( ;D) and the rest of you are lovely too.  Since what happens on Skype stays on Skype I'm NOT going to tell everyone about Tank playing at being Brittney Spears.  *touches nose knowingly*  Our secret Tank.  Our secret. 

I'm looking forward to the next one. Looks like we can do a seven day free trial of skype premium, so I don't mind hosting the next one.  Maybe we can all just take turns creating free Premium accounts every month...:D

Post by: Buddy on June 04, 2012, 03:56:32 AM
See, I had to download the premium trial just to get the video up. Maybe if we use this often enough I'll just go ahead and buy the premium.
Title: Re: HAF Virtual Meetup
Post by: Ali on June 04, 2012, 04:23:53 AM
It's 8.99 per month. I was wondering if there was a way to get a general HAF premium account that all of us (who plan on using it) could chip in and then we would have access to it whenever we all feel like it. Probably we should try it a few more times and see if it is something that we would use often enough to warrant having a permanent HAF account.

Are we all still on for this Sunday?

Red licorice is fine.  Because it's not really licorice; it's not flavored with the licorice plant.  Real licorice (aka the black death) is what we're discussing here, I think.

Hope the HAF massive had a good time today. I'm sorry I missed it - I had Father's Day duties too.

Did the Asmo have a voice and a face today?

Did y'all conspire to plot the demise of Liquorice. The counter-collective will be assembled in due course...

Title: Re: HAF Virtual Meetup
Post by: Ali on June 17, 2012, 10:22:14 PM
Why no....nothing was said about licorice and how it needs to be banished to the outer darkness at all.  Not a peep.   ;D

Asmo had a face, sort of, but since he works in mysterious ways, he was still typing instead of speaking.  And even the face was mysterious....I'm almost certain he was "chatting" from a pitch black room.  You'd see a flash of glasses here, a grasping hand there.  Pretty spooky, actually. 
Title: Re: HAF Virtual Meetup
Post by: Asmodean on June 17, 2012, 10:35:26 PM
The room was lit, but because I was not alone, I darkened the camera. Apparently though, I overdid it as Skype has its own cam settings. The intention was that my face would be visible but the background would be very dark to protect the privacy of my visitor if he decided to walk by.

DJ - Ooooh, that's rough!  Wee man is little to be giving up on naps too, I'm sure he was feeling quite tired and cranky. 

S'ok about missing the meetup.  We'll have to try it again soon.  I was actually thinking that I might just buy a 12 month premium account for HAF so we could do it whenever instead of someone having to pay $5 a pop (free trial my ass!)  If it seems like we would use it more than 12 times a year, it would be a better deal.

You should have edited (and still should) the post that Guardian responded to. If someone has not shared some of their info on the public forum, there may be a reason for that.

Hmm...sounds interesting....dare I risk being thoroughly disappointing?  :P
Don't worry you couldn't possibly be as much of a disappointment as me.  :D

But seriously I have been to many atheist meetings with people I have met on-line and some people just don't match up with your expectations. Some people can be very erudite and sparkly on-line but in real life quite dull ( and visa versa). Mainly because they are good with the written word where they have time to gather their thoughts but aren't as spontaneous in a real-time context. It's almost like you're meeting a different person.

The other big issue can be perceiving somebody as flirty on-line who really isn't in real life. They're happy to flirt in the relative safety and anonymity of cyber space, where body language is invisible, but in real life they just aren't that way inclined. This dichotomy can lead to serious repercussions where there is a serious miss-match of expectations.  

I used to consider myself a good judge of character. It turns out I am, in real life, but on-line I have made some real fuck-ups, trusting untrustworthy people and being far too open emotionally to needy people. In the past I used to think I had a lot of good friends on-line when in fact it was only a handful. And some of those 'friends' have turned out to be the most despicable people I have ever come across. But we live and learn.

Never invest more emotion in an on-line relationship than you are prepared to have thrown back in your face with derisive laughter added for good measure.

All true. It's not called the web for nothing.

Both personal and third-hand. One person I encountered ,who seemed perfectly affable and unthreatening at first sight, turned out to be quite cuckoo. At least here nobody bothers to conceal their otherness, self of course (with judicious self- deprecation) included.

I just got home...I hate malls. I got two sweaters some Aveda face moisturizer and Sushi out of it at least and scored some brownie points.

Not a big fan of Lowe's either.

I'm exhausted.

Finally after all this time I got to meet a few of my fellow members online. I'd like to say again how very nice it was to meet Buddy, Guardian and Tank, and get a chance to chat with you lovely folks for a bit; although I did have trouble understanding Buddy and her thick mid-western Indiana accent.

For those who couldn't join in and wonder what we talked about we had several nice conversations about dick-eating, Mackinaw Island, turning-21 stories (Drinking age) and emergency uses for condoms. (Buddy has an emergency pack in her mini with protein bars, blankets, bottled water, a shovel to bury her victims and prophylactics)

Plus Dag/Guardian did some shots of a popular Norwegian brandy called, "Cheep Ass Brandy".

All in all a good time....

Well Tank, if you hadn't left teh call so soon after I had joined in maybe you could have explained some of the rules to me...as it is I bet  everyone here didn't know that Buddy has like half a dozen kats running around her house, and also that her living room is entirely furnished with kat trees and stuff.

I think we need to discuss a possible intervention on her behalf...I started sneezing just seeing the kats on teh call.

Just having inter-shop tea, sliced beetroot, tomato, shallot and grated carrot sandwhich with low fat salad dressing. Would be really healthy if it was not on white bread.

Later: re-installed "Hangouts", there seems to be a video version as well.
