Zoom / Virtual Herfs?

Any BOTLs been involved in a Zoom meeting type herf, or other virtual herfs?

I wasn't sure what room to pose the question. This seemed as good as any.


I don't know if I have the technology to initiate, but may be able to "liberate" the wifeys laptop for a short while to join in.

I scheduled one a couple of months ago. Coach dialed in. It was fun.

Keith and I, along with mrdiver's daughter and son-in-law did a quick Signal call when they were in Slidell at Keith's a couple weeks ago. I'd be game, just have to charge up all my devices.

Rather that something like Zoom maybe set up a CigarWeekly Discord server? Allows more than JUST meetings. Has Voice and/or Video support, chat, various rooms...etc. Maybe our local Admin John could look into that? I use them for online gaming...as in tabletop games not computer games. Quick and easy

The company that John works for sells that kind of software.

Discord is at the vanguard of community porn distribution, content sharing, and online discussion. But they have cut back somewhat on revenge porn and teen furry porn recently.

Hold on there, Bill Gates.

My technology level is just above two cans and a string.

Discord is web based (or you can run an app) its a chat server, allows voice and/or video meetings. Pretty simple, if you can click a mouse you can use discord.

Best thing is a "server" really just a site is free...
