    We've talked about scheduling chats before so here we go our first scheduled chat.  We'd like to get Niners together to talk about the User Profile page and what we'd all like to see there.  A lot fo mention has been made to continue with its morphing into a blog view and we're thinking that's where we'd like to take it.  So let's put our heads together and come up with some cool ideas.  (Maybe jamie could even have some comps ready by chat time...Wink)

    When: Monday August 29th, 2:00pm Pacific Time (GMT -08:00)
    Where: Channel9 irc channel

    How to jump in the chat:

    1. Download mIRC
    2. Connect to an EFNet server
    3. Join #Channel9


    Hope to see you there and bring some good ideas Smiley

    EDIT: Click here to check what time it is on the Pacific coast of the US.

    Don't you mean Sunday August 28th?

    Either that or Monday August 29th?


    Or am I just confused because of the different timezones, because at the moment my machines date is set to Sunday August 28th.

    OK, now where can I get a truly gratis IRC client. None of this shareware trial "GIVE ME TWENNTY BUXCZ" crap.

    My client of choice is vIRC2.

    But XChat has its merits too.

    If you have Firefox you can use the chatzilla plugin.

    Does GMT do Daylight Savings Time, too? In the Seattle area we're on PDT right now, which is UTC -7h.

    Hope I'm not confusing things... Cool

    Yes, perhaps UTC -7 would have been better.  Either way, I've added a link now to the first post for anyone to click and see what time it is here on the Pacific coast of the US.

    Thanks jamie!  This will give us a great jump start for the chat.  I like what you've got going on there.

    Of course submitting concepts are open to anyone.  jamie had just mentioned it in a different thread.  The more ideas the better Smiley

    dont forget i have www.mychannel9.com  (its yours free if you need it)

    so the profile could be:

    www.mychannel9.com/jamie

    www.mychannel9.com/w3bbo   etc

    here is a thread about it from 5 months ago ( March 3rd)

    8- View all threads or all replies  ( view dropdown renders chosen formatting)

    9- visitor enumerator - so we no how many people have viewed our profile

    jamie

    bump

    (yes bump)


    above there is a top 10 list

    tomorrow there is a chat

    Q: is there anything in that list everyone doesnt like or want?

    * i tried to just be basic - although some things may take a bit of work for c9 team ( tags and upload html header / user polls - main 3)

    rest is ok? all are a start?
    *this just makes it into a blog basically - functionality to be discussed....
