Venerable Drunkducker Ayesinback suggested we have an open electronic meetup of DD people, so that's exactly what we did! We all met up in a long Skype session that lasted 10 hours- various DDers dropped in and out over that time and we chatted away about everything and nothing on videochat, meanwhile I tried on a never ending series of antique and novelty hats, one after another…
It was really lovely to see old and new DDers all together, to see their faces and hear their voices. A big thankyou to everyone who took part! It was a big success!
We will try it again and again in the coming months. The proposed date is the 3rd Saturday of every month, so the next one will be the 18th of June. The session starts at 11am New York time and runs for 10 hours until 9 pm New York time, so you can drop in any time during that!
You can get Skype for free here: www.skype.com. It works on all computers, phones and tablets. It can even work just in your web browser alone! You just sign up and install it. Then make sure you add “ozoneocean” as a friend.
Gunwallace's track this week was for Darklings. It's nice and long one with a good progressive rhythm.

Some of the genius things we discussed: The measure of distance is time. Inbreeding leads to contagious genetic deformity. Direct democracy VS Harkovast. We beet the sugar! Pineapple and artichoke, why eat them?

Tys: Download and install Skype from here: https://www.skype.com/en/ Follow the instructions on the site and sign up for an account. It's all free. Then add “ozoneocean” as a contact and be online during the time of the call. It helps if your comp has a microphone and speakers. Most laptops do these days and a cheap USB headset is great as well since you don't need speakers or a mic to make that work.

Hope all went well and everyone had fun.

I missed out. Wanted to at least show up but was in a sleep coma. Working nights makes for no real sleep patterns, except occasioally I can sleep for days. Now I have this skype thing trying to load every time I start the computer.

ozoneocean at 9:49PM, May 24, 2016

ozoneocean at 2:27PM, May 24, 2016

Dammit, yes! I forgot. Plus we had Lance Danger!

fallopiancrusader at 12:43PM, May 24, 2016

I was there too, for about 10 minutes. I had to run because I was hiding from zombies

Are Friends Electric ... ? It's a song. Gary Numan (Tubeway Army). What do they teach people in schools these days?

ozoneocean at 7:40AM, May 24, 2016

Hahaha no, it was based on Gunwallace's newspost from a while back that influenced this whole thing. "Are Drunk Duck people Electric?" or something like that.

Niccea at 7:32AM, May 24, 2016

Did you mean eclectic?
