We used to get together on the Realm a few years ago, and have quite fabulous times in a pre-arranged chat there.

It's kind of hard finding a time that suits everyone, but if people wish to, we could have a go on IM, or Yahoo chat, or whatever the hell people wish to, and try to get a time.

Sunday mornings Oz time seemed to suit a lot of us, since it was Saturday afternoon US time.

Any takers????

@dlowan,
Sure. You've both got my yahoo email, right? I'd add you to my friends list in a heartbeat.

@roger,
I don't think I got anybody's chat email no more.

And I have IM....I think....

We'd need to find somewhere to put such things, and agree on a medium and place.

@Roberta,
It stands for 'Instant Messaging' basically you just write real time. around the turn of the millenium we called it IRC (Internet Relay Chat). You guys should check out meebo http://www.meebo.com/

I'd love to join you when I can, Deb, but alas ... I'm way too slow a typist & couldn't keep up with you Speedy Gonzales types. Sad

... as you'd well know, from past experience.

@msolga,
ne'mind msolga you can chat to me. I'm a waaaaayyyy slow typist as well.

The only thing that bothers me is how I get peoples chat emails without PM's. If they are posted here who knows what lurkers will show up.

@dadpad,
Yes....we'd need a safe way of doing that.

One way would be for me to put Borat Sister's email up in her profile for a little while.

@hingehead,
Actually, what I have is now called Windows Live Messenger.

@dlowan,
Well, I cared, Deb ... about the fact that you, margo & I were having a very out of sync conversation because of my slowness. As I recall, every now & then one of you would politely enquire if I was still there! Embarrassed Laughing
But dadpad sounds about my speed! We could feel silly together!

@sozobe,
Great!


I'm downloading Meebo and Trillian and having a look at them.


Everyone whjo is interested needs to tag this thread.......I suspect it'll get the thumbs down because of limited interest soon.

@dlowan,
I'm sure Trillian still around. Meebo is cool because it's web based and it can handle all your chat accounts at the same time.

I'm [email protected]

For sure. First, which messenger to use, then we find a way to swap details.
