    Default Unofficial LOR training night wanted

    Hey guys! Hope you had a great 4th of July! we were busy but quiet - and like it that way

    We want to get started programming our display for next, er, this coming season and would like to get together with some of you all to learn some tips and tricks. We want to start simply - famous last words, I know - but would like some help from some of you more experienced guys .

    I know Denny had mentioned using the room at the Starbucks on Lake Boon Trail in Raleigh. Who might be able to come out and when would be good for you? Week night or weekend? We're pretty much open. Please let me know when would work in the next couple of weeks.
    Thanks!

    I am tied up weekends but I a weeknight would work out fine. Mondays and Thursdays are good for me most weeks. Pick a date and let's see who else wants to join us.

    Annie -

    Call the Starbucks, see what nights are available. Denny is definitely better at it than I am but if he's not available when the room is, I may be.

    Google Hangouts does and "OK" job of screen sharing; might be able to do an evening on-line class or two.

    And I need to say up front; July 13-19 is out for me. A lot of family coming in for my wife's family reunion that weekend.

    We're working on programming for our second controller that we're adding. So by no means a pro, and have quite a bit to learn ourselves. So this sounds like a pretty good get together to me.

    I am out of town until Monday and have a late conference call with Taiwan/China Tuesday. I could do this next week on Thursday if you can get the room. We should assume two hours.

    How about doing an e-session using Google Hangouts or something?

    Sit at home, in front of our own computer, share a screen, try it locally.

    Reminds me of work .. I work online with Taiwan and China almost every day. It's not that fun to me but I guess it would work.

    We use several different types of screen-shares at work; Google Hangouts isn't one of them, mostly because what we usually use is internal network only, although one has the ability to go outside the network out on the Internet.

    Skype supposedly went multi-user for free as well. They used to charge for multi-attendee video conferencing with screen share.

    While I like the face-to-face meetings, the "convenience" of a screen-share session with everyone remote may make it possible to do more of them.

    I'm OK with any of them, however, the one on the 20th is just 2 days before the TASL meeting at Swift Creek.
