Weekday 'Virtual' General session #8, Tuesday 11th August 2020, 6pm - 10pm

Post by sydney » Fri Aug 07, 2020 8:50 am

It's time for the next Tuesday evening meeting so please respond in this thread if you are interested in attending. 6pm - 10pm is the running time but it is possible we will go past this.
The Tuesday evening meets are quite different to the Saturday events which are highly structured with many organised speakers giving presentations.
Tuesday meets tend to be very much ad-hoc where conversation can flow between members on a variety of subjects from the technical moving through to more social interaction. We try to start off with any technical topics and once they are finished pretty much aything goes though we try to avoid politics and religion! To better reflect this I've made a small change to the title of the session to from Acorn to General.

This next bit is important.

If there is something you'd like to talk about let me know in this thread and I'll make sure time is set aside for discussing your topic.

Also, if you suddenly remember something you would like to talk about during the meeting and you don't want to interrupt the current discussion please message me using the zoom chat and let me know and I'll move the discussion on at an appropriate time.

If there are no topics then the evening will be pretty much just a social gathering of Acorn geeks, which many would agree is no bad thing.

Count me in too please.
There is so much wonder in the universe; why should you want to imagine that there is more?

I'll be sending out the meeting details soon as I'm quite busy the rest of today. Anyone requesting a place after now might not get a response until near the meeting time.
