Mehaps you should join our skype party!

Step one: skype chat at me or somebody else who is there. I am penvtoqnavry. Only rot13'ed, because I prefer if SF0 doesn't turn up if you google my real name, so.

Step two: I add you to the chat.

I'd certainly be down. We need to be eating the same thing, though.
Anyone else in?

I hope this collaboration|party gets big!
Where/how/when do we meet? How do we agree on ingredients/time zones/recipes?

(no subject)
posted by Sam Archer on February 28th, 2012 8:05 PM

DO WANT.

I feel like Feb 29 would be the perfect day for this (a virtual meal on a day that doesn't exist), but might be too short notice.

Also, question for the task creator and/or the general assembly -- does "never met in person" include the meal (meaning it actually CAN'T be in the same physical location), or could we do this task by meeting a player in person for the first time and then breaking bread with them? The virtual meal sounds awesome but meeting Internet strangers in person is fun too.

posted by Lincøln on February 28th, 2012 10:10 PM

Leap Day seems like a perfect day for this.
I'm Pacific Time (as are many others), at what time will relet & Kattapa be able to share at the same time as us Pacific Timers?

(no subject)
posted by Kattapa on February 29th, 2012 1:09 AM

I'm available the entire day. Our time difference is nine hours. What will we eat? Will we eat something simple (like bread) or shall we quickly agree on something weird?

(no subject)
posted by relet 裁判長 on February 29th, 2012 2:33 AM

Sorry, I cannot attend. Leap day does not exist.

posted by Sam Archer on February 29th, 2012 3:01 AM

I've got work and then a night class so I'm only available briefly before 8pm PST and then any time after 10pm PST, probably too late for most other folks. :(

How about the weekend? More people will be able to notice this and more people will have time.

(no subject)
posted by Sam Archer on February 29th, 2012 8:22 AM

Weekend is better, I think. We could do noon PST -- lunch in SF, late dinner in Berlin. Or slightly earlier. West Coast breakfast, East Coast lunch, Europe dinner...

posted by Sam Archer on February 29th, 2012 12:05 PM

All right, I'm going to propose that we do this on 3/3 at noon PST.

(no subject)
posted by Lincøln on February 29th, 2012 9:58 PM

Should we share the same meal?
Or just prepare something?
Maybe eat on a theme?

(no subject)
posted by Sam Archer on February 29th, 2012 10:45 PM

I'm going to throw "omelettes" out there purely because I want to blow out some eggs and make them into seed bombs, which requires that I do more cooking with eggs.

If we wanted to really share the SAME meal exactly, some kind of mass-produced and widely-available meal would be ideal, like some particular variety of Campbell's soup, or some kind of big brand frozen food.

(no subject)
posted by relet 裁判長 on March 1st, 2012 1:43 AM

You probably won't find any of these in Europe, especially not readily available. The regulations for aggregated meals are quite different.

I would rather consider simple ingredients as widely available. Water, flour, vegetables, spices.

(no subject)
posted by Lincøln on March 1st, 2012 11:25 PM

I like the idea of eggs.
Mostly because I really love eggs.
Maybe we all just make some kind of egg dish?

(no subject)
posted by Sam Archer on March 2nd, 2012 12:36 AM

Eggs for all!

So, I've never done a video conference call with Skype, but it looks like you need the premium version to make that happen (at least one person does). Does anyone have it?

posted by Kattapa on March 2nd, 2012 12:45 AM

I would suggest pancakes (or vegan pancakes).

posted by relet 裁判長 on March 2nd, 2012 12:53 AM

Google hangouts seem to be more stable for massive conferencing.
And upvote for vegan pancakes.

posted by Lincøln on March 2nd, 2012 11:29 AM

Google hangout seems like a great idea.
As do vegan pancakes!
(I'm going to also have eggs)

Who's starting the Google hangout thing? What's the connection info? I am lost and confused.

(no subject)
posted by relet 裁判長 on March 3rd, 2012 9:31 AM

Are you people ok with google? If so, you can find me at http://relet.net/+ - I just realized that the third is today, but I'll be around at your noon. With pancakes.
It doesn't matter really who starts it, as long as everyone has at least one contact to invite them.

posted by Lincøln on March 3rd, 2012 10:58 AM

I am OK with Google. I think it is a fine idea.

Pancakes are an hour away.

posted by Sam Archer on March 3rd, 2012 11:24 AM

I'm going to go start fixing food, but I started a hangout and invited relet to it. Hopefully by the time I'm done cooking there will be other people as well.

It's a shame, I just noticed that if my computer desk were about three feet over and if it weren't so much brighter outside than inside, you all would be able to see Sutro Tower on my webcam.

May the dough be with you!

That Sutro tower would do great in the documentation, indeed.

If anyone else is getting in on this, add relet so he can add you to the hangout, or post your info so we can invite you, or something.

Aw shoot. We missed Kattapa after all.
Should we repeat that experiment? Make that the SFØ Saturday Pancakes? It worked pretty well actually.

It doesn't have to be every Saturday, just when there is enough interest / cake. And we could try and see if we do some sf0 podcasting in the meantime.

posted by Kattapa on March 4th, 2012 1:19 AM

When using Google hangouts be sure to add to your profile at least one of the people you want to chat with a bit in advance. Doing this just before lead to not being able to see the hangout. I did chat a bit with relet though and the pancakes were delicious :) See you another Pancake Saturday!

I am also in with some degree of certainty, contingent on how wild my Friday night is and how late I perforce must sleep. Will PM Kattapa and Pixie with my Google infos so we can find each other, assuming we're doing the Google Hangout thing again.

Haha! I was running through the mountains with an 18kg backpack, sprained my knee, impaled myself on a tree stock and fell asleep as soon as I had some food in my stomach.
Sorry for missing out.
