Well, not exactly.
For a spur of the moment fan call, the chat room experiment last night was a resounding success. The word spread fast through blogs, Twitter and Facebook. I got loopy after awhile and lost count but over six hours, 25+ people revolved through, lending their voices to the chatter. Sadly the event began too late for most of the European contingent but Canada and America represented as well as possibly Australia or New Zealand (not quite sure). We did have some one from Jakarta!
Topics changed a zallion times covering everything from s*x (the program running the chatroom was prudish) to BBS and TR80s (if you know what those are, you’re old). I do think a certain british actor was discussed at least 70% of the time. Maybe.
Atendees seemed to enjoy themselves so efforts are underway to make the chatroom a regular feature in Armitage World. A bigger event is in the works and we are trying to pinpoint an ideal time frame so all time zones can participate, like we did in the Christchurch telethon chatroom. Watch this space and other blogs for more information.
A few problems popped up last night that my computer guru Trinalin (some of you met her last night) and I will work on. Before the big event, I would like to stage an all time zone call to chat either this weekend or the next, depending how coherently I can parse code. Ideally it will start on Saturday at 10:00PM GMT, similar to the Christchurch event. Again, watch blogs and Twitter for an official announcement.
As I said before, this chatroom is for you, RA fans. If you have any ideas on how we can have fun online while we weather the drought, I certainly want to hear them. If you have any comments, complaints or love to share, feel free to comment or contact me in the tab above.
Remember, the chatroom is available 24/7 Click the chat link on the right to join, invite a friend and BOOM, you’ve got a party.
