It was good to see you all, but next time, Sunday. I may be on the road for roughly 0.5 kilomiles. So if I don't make it, the food part may be a lot less elaborate than making quiche.

Fastfood perhaps.

Blimey that's some stretch Andre.

If anyone wants to try voice chats you will just need to download and install the Team Speak client and have speakers or headphones and a Microphone.
I use it for gaming and it works good.
Here is the link to download Team Speak.
http://www.goteamspeak.com/?page=downloads
It is freeware and all you will need is the Client.
There is a public server called "Alpha Teamspeak" whoever wants to try voice chats can meet there.

I think the chat is pretty cool, except that i get disconnected quickly (less than a minute). It's a good step forward for PF. Congrats!.

Hey, that was some pretty lightning typing there. Worth it though!
 
  • #15
That was some fast talk/typing, Zz! ;-)
 
  • #17
Well that's my Sunday productivity gone. :biggrin:
 
  • #18
Perfect timing Zz!
 
  • #19
Awesome chat.

Can't wait until next week, when I can hopefully spend the whole time there. I'm making good progress on preparing my talk at least, but I think that had more to do with the power failures keeping me offline than with any actual willpower on my part. :rolleyes:

Thanks guys, I didn't make it to the gym or finish my homework. I blame it on YOU!
 
  • #22
Blame your wife for bringing you beer.

Everybody needs to do all their work before "PF Chat Day" so that we can get maximum turnout. Rave in physics chat!
 
  • #24
I managed to be "Busy" for just long enough to shovel a bit of snow, fill the wood-box, and do up the dishes after my wife's wonderful spicy rice/bean/corn concoction, but pretty much the day was shot. Fun!

What effect does chat have on the number of people active in the forums? DO people still use it while chatting in two windows? I can only manage one thing at a time.

I have a couple of windows open and browse the forums at the same time. I've seen Doc Al in the forums (keeping the HW help section running) while he's been on the live chat.

Well yes I wondered how chat effected the homework section. Is it possible to be both in General Chat and Science chat? That would be so cool.

Open PF in two browser window, enter chat in each and see if you can be in two rooms concurrently. I may try that next Sunday just for grins.

I'll give that a try :smile:

I'm pretty sure an account can only hold one session at a time.

The aren't that many people in science chat anyway.

I'll try not to break anything, Greg. :rolleyes:

You're probably right, though. If I were writing a chat app, I'd probably force log-off from one area if an account tried to access more than one. The ability to be in several "rooms" at once would be an advantage for mods, though, I would think.

Why would anyone want to be anywhere else other than the general chat? That's where all the bad jokes were being dished out!

I thought the "string" and "pull the string" jokes were far worse :smile:
