It's time to start a monthly chat, starting this Sunday. Hope you can make it!

I've just picked a time that looks good - we can always change it next time.

Date: Sunday 12 August (2nd Sunday of the month)

Time: 10pm GMT. That's 3pm PDT/6pm EDT for North Americans, 8am Monday AEST for Australians... or use the Time Zone Converter if you need.

Details are also at Appropedia:IRC #Regular meetings.

We use IRC - it's an old fashioned chat, good for open conversations. See the section on Using IRC - there are some easy ways to get online.

Looking forward to it.

Thanks Strypey - I'll look into that.

I like text chat for a few reasons - say, if Kili (Chris Sam) wants to join us from Tanzania, understanding our various accents over a local connection might be a challenge. And having a written record of the chat can be useful.

But I'd like to connect more with fellow Appropedians one-on-one or in small groups, and I've been looking for an open source alternative to Skype!
