Weekday 'Virtual' General session #12, Tuesday 17th November 2020, 7pm - 10pm

Post by Arcadian » Fri Nov 13, 2020 8:47 pm

Please respond in this thread if you are interested in attending the General Acorn session on Tuesday 17th November. Note the new running time of 7pm - 10pm.

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 anything goes though we try to avoid politics and religion!

This next bit is important.

If there is something you'd like to talk about please post in this thread and me or whoever is moderating at the time can 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 leave a message in the Zoom chat for the attention of a host/co-host.

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.

I'm not 100% sure I can make it, so don't keep me a space if it fills up.

I'll get Zoom invites sent out to everybody within the next hour.

CCawley & Edwardian Duck: can you confirm you're happy to receive the Zoom info in the form of a calendar invite email sent from ABug's Google account? (I have to ask everyone this). Otherwise I'll send them via PM.
