  1. No worries. Back in May, I set up Google Calendar events for the monthly chat. Here are the details: And Matt set up the Zoom call for every two weeks. You'll find the details here:
  2. Hi, Greg. Sorry to hear no one else was able to join. True, there are other ways to communicate, although each of those ways offers a different experience: Discord is a slick modern platform for real-time and non-real-time chatting. The Zoom-TI-99ers Pandemic 4A Club call is a fun put-a-face-to-a-name video meetup. Chatting on MYTI99.COM via the actual TI console, needless to say, offers a certain nostalgic experience similar to classic BBS chatting, and I'm sure some folks still enjoy it. The low turnout lately is unfortunate, but I don't think there's any harm in leaving it as standing event for anyone who might be available and interested. How do others feel about it?
  3. I would have liked to logon but had another commitment. Hopefully others were able to join.
  4. Likewise, I was going to join tonight around 9:30PM Eastern. These monthly chats are still on the calendar for the 9th of every month, one at 9PM Central European Time and the other at 9PM Eastern Time. But seems like interest wanes and waxes, depending on the day of the week and time of year. (Whenever I don't already have an evening commitment, I aim for the 9PM Eastern session since I'm in Chicago.)
  5. Thanks for the update and all of your hard work, Matt. A VGA-only release is fine with me, and likewise, I support whatever works best for you.
  6. Hello, All. The monthly group chat happening now if anyone else is interested in joining.
  7. I've just loaded it up and tried it. The scrolling functionality certainly is nice! Thanks, Stuart and Corey.
  8. Yes, thanks, everyone. I learned a few new things today. I was invisible & muted; lots of peripheral noise here today between a street rally and rooftop AC units. (I was outside on the rooftop deck.) Looking forward to next time.
  9. Hi, Berry. Sounds like maybe old meeting access info? Here's the info for the current call: Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85958685327?pwd=NERYV3NrVGRkT2oyS0hUQjNvbWg3dz09 Meeting ID: 859 5868 5327 Password: 049350
  10. Thank you all, both for the feedback and for taking the survey. This assuaged my remaining concerns; going forward, I indicated to my team it's benign enough to make all meeting access info available publicly, and we'll see how it goes. Given all the protective functionality available in Zoom (e.g. the Waiting Room, Mute Participants Upon Entry, the ability to Lock Meeting), I don't expect any problems with neerdowells that can't be easily/quickly resolved with a quick click.
  11. I know this isn't specifically TI-related, but in light of the recent threads for Zoom-based meetups, I thought I'd take a chance and reach out to you all for some feedback. For simplicity, I made this a survey, but feel free to share any thoughts: I work with a non-profit organization that, since March, has been scheduling its monthly public meetings via Zoom. Obviously, Zoombombing of public meetings was a widespread problem back in March. So our team made a habit of setting up meetings with a password and then waiting to share that password publicly until a few hours before the meeting. Now that things are better with Zoom (e.g. improved client, better practices), my team is suggesting that we simply post all Zoom meeting info publicly. They feel that, by holding back on the password as we are now, we risk loosing a part of our audience. I'd like to recommend a best practice to my team based on what's working well for most folks these days. Any feedback would be appreciated.
  12. Great idea. Zoom is pretty ubiquitous these days so good choice. Unfortunately, I can't make it since I have another commitment at that time, but if it all goes well, maybe another Zoom meetup can be set up sometime? Have fun!
  13. I regret I wasn't able to make it last night. Hopefully next month.
  14. Yes, I should have clarified: I'm familiar with telnet connectivity to BBS's, and I've been using TIPI + telnet. (And before that a UDS-10 with TIMXT.) The WiModem232 is an interesting device, although I don't own one. I've had a little (very little) success using my original 300baud VolksModem plus a VOIP phone line. I was considering picking up a faster, more reliable dialup modem, again, just for fun and the nostalgia factor. Anyway, I know this is all bit off the topic of WiModem232. On a related note, curious to know which terminal emulator you recommend for use with TIPI when connecting to your BBS. MyTerm?
