Skype Chat take two
« on: December 31, 2007, 01:52:52 PM »
What happen to idea of skype chat. Stefan we can arrange one for foreigners I am sure we have developed the ability to hear the "hmm, err,  don't know the term, eeeh" without becoming bored  ;). I think even the grammatical mistakes would make sense to us. :) :)

EDIT: see below

Skype chat is not cancelled, nor is one arranged at the moment. I am feeling too whacked out by my illness to do the organising although I love the idea of combining this with Stefan's idea of a group meditation.

Assuming my condition at least gives me some respite in the new year I would propose we do a 1/2 hour sit and then a chat some time mid January on a late Saturday afternoon (Europe)/Late Morning (NY)/Early morning (US Pacific), i.e. about 4pm GMT, 11am NY, 8am Pacific.

Thoughts?

Matthew

Hi TIB,
I hope your condition will improve this year. The proposed time is fine for me.
Do you know why it didn't work last time? and do you know how many members tried to join the chat?

This is the shortest, most precise answer I have ever got.
Silentfluent is Saturday OK for you?  I remember you saying sunday afternoon are better for you.

I added a poll. Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th.

That's the weekend after the coming one if anyone is as out of touch as I usually am with the date. If there is a more sensible time when we can (from around the globe remember) all "meet up" make suggestions here.

In the Dhamma,

It looks like the dates should be Sat. the 12th or Sun. the 13th. (?)

Yes Tara, Sundays are better for me because I work most Saturdays.

I'm sorry I am too unwell to do this now. If someone else wants to organise it then look at the skypecasts page - it's easy to set up and manage. Then post a link to the page in this thread perhaps.

Please accept my apologies.

Matthew,
No need to apologize.
Very sorry to hear things are still going badly.  Please keep us informed of your circumstance as you are able.
With much metta,
