Where: On your computing device. Anything with a Zoom client. https://zoom.us/download - You probably want "Zoom Client for Meetings" or "Zoom Mobile Apps".

When: Saturday February 17 2024 @ 1700 PST / 2000 EST / 2130 NST - We will likely go quite late, typically ending after 0100 PST.

The link will be the same every week. We don't need a list, many people will be here. Just add your name if you want the link PM'd to you around 1630 PST before the do.

Suggestion: Please include your forum handle (and optionally your name) when logging onto Zoom.

Please send me the same link as last week:

Now that the waiting room is enabled, it will need a host to start allowing people in. But even if I'm somehow busy, I can just do it from my phone.

My employer's zoom system claims to prevent recording unless that feature is enabled day, although it does preserve chat messages for seven days. We can have co-hosts and if someone doesn't enter through the employer's account/email, they must first go to the waiting room as a guest even if we're not using the waiting room for regular participants. There's some other way to enable guests that I haven't explored yet.

I mentioned this in the actual Do earlier, but who would be in favour of making this a monthly event after the COVID-19 pandemic is over?

Now, of course, we will keep it weekly until the pandemic is over!

Once the pandemic is over, there will be no need, since we'll be able to do the YYT Do, the YHZ Do, the 5th Annual YYC Burgers & Scotch Do, etc

100%

But we don't have real AC Dos on a monthly basis!

You have an open invitation to SFO any weekend you want.

As does almost everyone.

especially when you join "later", someone has to notice you.

If we've all had a few drinks, that might take a couple minutes
