I was playing about with Jitsi Meet and I've got an install of it running. Who fancies picking an evening to all jump on for a chat? If you're on a PC don't need to install anything, just make sure your camera and microphone works (headsets work just fine). There's an app for mobile users too, which seems to work okay. Unlike competing products that sound like an 80s ice lolly, they don't send all your info to China ;-)

Sounds like a plan. We were using Microsoft Teams at work and my retirement piss up was done over Teams, 27 people at the peak, all sitting at home having a beer while talking random bollocks. One guy at work has Type 1 Diabetes so hasn't been out of the house since before official lockdown started so he's been occupying his time generating pub quiz type questions which have now become a weekly event on a Thursday evening (they even invite retired members like me).

The only thing is when? Any evening except a Thursday would suit me and I would think something like 8pm was suit most.

I was thinking about avoiding weeknights but it's not like we've got to get up early for work :-)

I'll be about - literally have no other work at the moment since there isn't an entertainment industry

I've set one up as a test at https://jitsi.gjcp.net/rrpub with the password "minesapint". Double-click on your thumbnail in the top right to set your name, and let's see how well it works!

I am working (from home) but a weekend one could work. Or next week (I'm on holiday).
I'll send you all a virtual burger :)

Tried a test earlier this afternoon with 3 of us and it worked perfectly, all you need do is click the link and enter the password. At one point Gordon connected using the App on his phone so was there twice so even that side of it works. Jitsi seems to be very similar to Teams but with a few extras, the ability to share a Youtube video being one of them.

Surely, that's after the sun has gone past the yardarm? Have a beer like everyone else, at least it's the afternoon....

I'll be up for this. Depending what I'm doing I might even be using my mobile whilst getting the engine back in the VSE!

Its 11:49pm here as I write this now if that helps. Not sure what timestamp your seeing on the posts? For me its not adjusting to BST so showing an hour behind the actual time here (in the UK)

Yup, 5am. Ideal time for a beer if you ask me.

As long as you treat it as late last night and not early this morning......

Remember.....Mad As is in Tazzie, which is very nearly a part of Australia, so any old o'clock is beer o'clock!
Mayhaps a nice coffee porter?

How about we make it 9:30 PM UK time Wednesday evening? That will give us a 6:30 AM Thursday start here and the US guys late afternoon Wednesday.
