Who is in?

Let's make this one a good one. I punked out last time but not this one!

One quick towel day toast with as many GOTMEADers as can fit on a skype video call.

Anyone that's in post here. I'll make the skype call to everyone. Maybe a communal PM to get eeryone's skype contact?

Sounds like fun. I'll have to dig out my Skype info though. Haven't reinstalled it on my new gaming pc yet.

Hmmmmmm that's always the sticking point isn't it? We are so spread apart. It's Memorial Day here on the 25th so work won't get in the way. Let''s try this... when it's 8PM on the east coast of the USA...it's..... ____________ in the Netherlands....

6 hours ahead of eastern time, so 2 AM . Maybe 8:00 AM eastern time? 4 AM Pacific?

How about noon EST? That would put it in the window of "normal awake time" for everyone. If not normal drinking time but it IS towel day after all right?

Use the towel to cover your eyes and go back to sleep

I would join you, but I already had plans for today.

Happy Towel Day!

I'm prevented from participating by the fact that I don't know of a Skype app for Linux. Otherwise I'd pop in and say it in person.

In spirit of the day I'll read from the sacred texts of the guide.

Fortuna doesn't want me to enjoy Towel Day. Maybe I will start slow. Watership Down Day (we rub a rabbit's foot).

Yep. Have been neglecting my Mead (but I'm enjoying Backgammon Duel) for a couple of years now! Some 30gal just sitting in the basement. Will get back to it this summer, though!

Another Towel Day approaching. We need to get this organized.... have a few ideas. Watch this space. What I am thinking is that, because Skype will support 10 people, someone with a fiber connection (and a "muscular" PC) should open a Towel Day conference when Australia hits midnight, and leave it open all day, and people can jump on and off as their schedule and time zone permits. I only have an ADSL connection with standard laptops, or I would offer to do it.

Anyone meet the criteria, and is willing and able? https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1417/how-much-bandwidth-does-skype-need

Maybe we could have a Vogon poetry reading... http://hitchhikers.wikia.com/wiki/Vogon_poetry

Okay, I have a profile created on Skype called GM Towel Day. If you want to be a part of it, send a message to that Skype ID to be added.

LOL. Well, it will only be up for testing until actual Towel Day on May 25. Midnight in Sydney Australia would be 10:00 AM on May 24 in Miami, FL. Anyone that wants to participate should post here, and an invitation to connect will be sent. Still have some bugs/settings to work out.

I hope it will be open all day, and people sign on....might be someone else there, but maybe not. Send a contact request to GM Towel Day

Sent from an Android being tortured by Vogon poetry reading, some of which just leaked out here.

Here's how I think it's gonna work . You have installed Skype, and sent a contact request to GM Towel Day, and it's been accepted. You will then be added to a group. When Towel Day rolls around, a call to the group will be made. If you're not available then, you can join the group later. Anything you post will be seen by members of the group. Here's is Skype's explanation.... https://support.skype.com/en/howto/windows-desktop/?cm_mmc=ICDC_2224_Essentials_VM#VD11


Am still looking for a confirmed fiber connection to host the call.

Well, it didn't happen in 2014, http://www.gotmead.com/forum/showthread.php/23078-May-the-4th-and-Towel-Day! and it didn't happen in 2015, and it seems to meet with a resounding thud in 2016, or maybe it was the Vogon poetry. To quote Doug Adams, “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

Guess I will wipe up the spilled mead with my towel and wait til next year.

Well, it's happening after all, with a limited number of connections. Will get to additional requests when I am awake again !!!
