*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: in my reclyner
Event Type: Coffee/Chat
Meeting Point: LiB's Champagne Lounge

Alright folks, since the whole podcast thing may take a while to set up, I've decided to give our very own EF chat a bump. For many the uninitiated, simply click on "community" (3rd option from the right) and then select "Live Chat" (last option). This place can be used for chit-chat, light banter, etc.
Since we're all in the same boat, why don't we try to take our minds of the dire situation we're faced with and help each other get safely get through "The Lockdown".
RSVP'd Yes: 2 (2 members and No guests)
  • lost_inbroad
  • ZuriRollt - But am incredibly shy so might not say anything, but would love to tune-in if that‘s OK?
RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • Pancakes
  • roegner - Will try, previous times it did not work to access the chat
  • EastEnders - Depends on what OH wants to watch on telly 😉 Teleclub has no Subs, so I might pop in later
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: EF Chat - The Lockdown

Not really sure what it's for, TBH, as replies come quite quickly enough for me in normal threads, but it doesn't seem to work on my up-to-date Firefox browser on W10 anyway.

Re: EF Chat - The Lockdown

Is it an all-day thing or will this begin at a specific time, or is it just on-going in general?

And more importantly... Will there also be naked Scrabble?

I understand that helpful answers are being provided quick enough but it also makes it painstaking, to weed out the gibberish and useless post. For people like myself, who tend to drop the off comment , this is simply a place to let loose a bit.

Oh, good. Because I'm really tired of playing naked Scrabble with myself.

OOhh, you play Scrabble? Could you maybe do it with your clothes on? Silly comment, it will be on-line, so I can implement my usual home-office rules (since a few years) of at least keeping my upper half covered if I need to go public (hoping that it is just a conference call thing, without Skype and all that). Forgot to mention that I‘m apparently in a risk group

I might have a stomach virus at this time, please forgive

Look forward to the next one though!

Yes, I love Scrabble. And yes, I do also play with clothes on.

You do realize the chat's not working for a long time now (think we had a bit too much fun there back in them days. I received very vague if any at all answers when I asked about why it's down).

So if you're in there, how did you do it? I just tried - not working still.

I don't know, It let me in as usual.
That must explain the lack of people showing up.

Re: EF Chat - The Lockdown

I think I got in earlier but wasn't sure if I was in the right place. I think it said "The Lounge" at the top. I left a comment in there that said "testing... testing..."

Re: EF Chat - The Lockdown

It seems to use Flash. Adobe Flash.
That's why Safari doesn't load it because I've stopped installing it years ago.

You guys realize this will be EOL in a couple of months?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash#End_of_life

Support will be removed in most mainstream browsers a while before that.

It's also one of the most notorious infection vectors of PCs for malware and viruses - as such, using it to chat over a virus-induced lockdown is very appropriate, I give you that.
