I'll try and attend if there is space, depends on a bunch of stuff. Will be after 8pm at least.
Super - have PM'd you the login details.

There's no real limit on the weeknight sessions btw (unless we start getting near 50 participants which is very unlikely!)

Thx Neil! Ok, I believe I've issued Zoom login info to everyone on the list so far. If more people want to sign up then I'm happy to continue issuing Zoom logins throughout Thursday daytime (and I'll try and keep an eye on the sign-up thread during the session too, in case there are any late-comers)...

Thanks Kieran agree with all of that. In the case of Snuggsy's queries, he did actually give me a more detailed description of the issues in relation to his Pooyan conversion a couple of weeks ago, which I forwarded to Tricky so he could have a think about what kind of response to offer in the first...

Re: Weeknight 'Virtual' Dev session #0, Thursday 6th August 2020, 7pm - 10pm

One thought I had is that perhaps there might be an opportunity for a series of ‘masterclasses’ from different people that help bring some technical knowledge to a wider audience? Essentially anything that has a chapter in the Advanced User Guide could easily have a class before you even get onto g...

Perhaps if we looked at 7pm - 9pm project chat, with a presentation at 9pm? At the end of Tricky's talk at last Saturday's vABug he presented a selection of possibilities for future events - perhaps some of these could be presented at Dev sessions? https://stardot.org.uk/forums/download/file.php?mod...

Re: STH incomplet copy of Uridium by Hewson

I have actually left it on the server here it just doesn't appear in the indexes.

I suppose I could upload your fixed version in place of the original (and append a -HACKED_B.uef suffix, to indicate that it isn't fully sourced from an original tape?).

Can everyone posting please indicate what sessions(s) they're likely to be around for? Or state 'all day' if you expect to be online for most of the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Ta!
