  2. Was there for the first 20 minutes, but all alone! So I pasted my comments below:

    [2:13] tinyone: So, if there is no one else, I will just add my comments and head to bed!
    [2:15] tinyone: I would like to have as much recycled material as possible, but a contractor advised me
    [2:16] tinyone: not to use recycled wood for the frame since it would not be straight or strong enough
    [2:16] tinyone: But I am thinking about using it for the siding
    [2:17] tinyone: Also, the recycled blue jean insulation sounds interesting, but not as high an R-value
    [2:18] tinyone: so I am thinking it makes more sense to go with the most insulating material since
    [2:18] tinyone: the walls can’t really be made much wider

    • Really??

      *bites hat*
      Fing B:eeping!
      *Takes hat off, jumps on it*

      Well I was definitely there There must have been something totally screwed up with tinychat. I wonder how many people came, and were cut off by tinychat’s malfunction.

      There was thing that popped up at 8:13 that said a guest had joined the room in room 1, but I assumed that was some sort sprurious thing from me opening the same chatroom more than once or something.

      You do everything right, and what happens, the software Fs everything up royally. F^(&^.

      Well in any case looks like only one person is better thatn nothing, so I’ll keep looking into a FUNCTIONAL platform to use for next time. Something that ACTUALLY WORKS. I mean I can understand dropped connections, or low qualtiy video or something. but for cripes crap, it has to actually work to some degree. **@$%#@

  3. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I clicked on your link and signed in at exactly 8pm EST, then started typing around 8:13pm to keep awake (I’m in Europe, and it was past 2am here). There was another person named fred who entered the chat just as I was about to give up, but exited after a minute without saying anything.

    Anyhow, thanks for your efforts and better luck next time!

  4. btw, perhaps the problem may be that I clicked on the links in this blog post, not the new one?

    • Wha? What? Yes, that would be the problem. I thought I was totally clear about the way it was supposed to work. I guess I should have said more about that. Arg. What can you do.

      It has to be the new links, otherwise someone could get control of moderator status and vandadize things. Doing it like this ensures that only I can have moderator status.

      I’ll try to be more clear about how it all works next time, however based on your comment, I decided to use Vsee next time, and I think I’ll continue with that now.

  5. In retrospect it makes sense… but yeah, best not to post example links so as not to confuse the not-so-bright folks such as myself 🙂
