: Some time ago, the idea was presented on this Board, by Soldier #2, that perhaps we should plan some kind of get-together in the future
: where those of us interested could meet one another. Sounded like fun, and there was some discussion here that indicated there might be some fervor for the idea. With Soldier #2 there, many of your questions could be answered, people could meet, and some of the locations could be toured. If there was enough committment to the idea, we'd make an attempt at arranging a showing of LOTM in one of the local theatres. To me, it sounds like a good time.
: Well, we now have our Chat Room set up, tested & ready to go. So, we invite any of you who might be seriously interested in attending such an event in the beautiful mountains here in North Carolina to put your two cents worth in. Discussion with a couple of you has led us to schedule the "chat" this Saturday night at 10PM EST. The URL for the room is found below.
: We realize this is not a good time for everybody. No time would be. It makes it difficult for Europeans to be there for one thing, and two of you from the Old Country have expressed a desire to be there. What we will do is post the consensus results the next morning so that everyone can add their own feedback if they so desire. Next time, we'll change the time. And Marie, who wanted to attend, will be off at a living history affair ... so, we just can't please everyone. Hope you all understand!
: We have no idea if we'll be talking to an empty room, or if the place will be mobbed. We DO know that it can be confusing in a crowded room, so please, take your time, be patient, and be considerate. As I've mentioned before, because we are using a free edition, we have no moderator capabilities, per say. We'll all just have to use some judgment! The room is open now. You can go there, test run it - alone or schedule to meet someone there - and see how it works. It's really VERY easy! There is a FAQ button you can use, or send us an e-mail and we'll answer your question should you have trouble. Be sure you have a JAVA enabled browser ... then, wait for the applet to load, type in the name you want to use (here's the chance for those of you who don't want your e-mail address known, and so you don't post, to make your voice heard), click "OK, connect", and you're in. When you want to leave, just click the "log off" button. So go ahead, try it out. We'll talk on the 6th!
: One other thing ... we can see that "The Boxer" will be a big hit among you. While it might be a stretch that it's LOTM related, feel free to use this Board to discuss that film, OK? OK!
Yes! I too checked out the chat room. It was very easy, much easier than I thought it would be. Unfortunately, I have to work Sat. night[;(], so you guys have fun! I agree that we should definitely have a Mohican gathering! I'll check out the results in the morning.
