Gorrammit! I can chat with y'all as individuals, but not in the group. I would be depressed beyond belief, but at least I managed to find out what ep everyone is watching right now. And I get to snuggle with my guy, too!

Hope everyone who could log on had a great time! A to all!

(but a to AOL!)

Cheers,

For those who couldn't attend, the first Official Virtual Shindig went well. I think close to twenty people showed up at one point or another. We watched two episodes, Out of Gas and Jaynestown, before I had to leave.

Even though the Official Virtual Shindig is over, the Firefly chat room is always there and I plan on checking in whenever I have a chance.

I don't know how it works on other AIM clients but in Apple's iChat you choose the 'Go to Chat...' item from the File menu, then type 'Firefly' (without the quotes) and click the 'Go' button.

Wow, spiffy. My internet (and phone, and cable tv for my whole neiborhood) is gone will be for awhile too because of a broken line, so i couldn't get in. (or start it, whoch i seemed to think i was supposed to)

I'm on an older OS than Jaguar so don't have iChat. I did finally figure out what the problem was ... I was guilty of not reading AOL's instructions fully and didn't realise that their OS10 version was the correct one for 9.x, too!

Oh well ... live and learn. At least I can stop jabbing these pins into my AOL doll.

As I am leaving next week, i would like to have one more shindig, that i can actually come to, before i leave and go 3 months with very little internet.

So, announcing the SECOND ANNUAL SHINDIG!

Tuesday next (june 8th i think) at 5-ish (pacific time), we can have another shindig! Again, we can argue about what to watch before we watch it.

So tell your freinds, tell your neighbors, tell you pet fish if thats the only thing around. Then, come to the SECOND ANNUAL SHINDIG!

How about making the annual Shindigs weekly? For thems who live in the Americas (or who think that sleepiness is weakness of character), join us in the AIM http://www.aim.com/ room Firefly on Tuesdays 8:00pm EST (Wednesdays 00:00 GMT). I recommend the gaim http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php client for GNU/Linux and Windows users. If you're using something else, some clients require that you invite yourself to a room to join it.

ThatWierdGirl made it, but for anyone else who is having trouble finding the place here are a couple of suggestions.

First look for a menu item something like 'Go to Chat' or 'Join a Chat', then type 'Firefly' (without the quotes) as the name of the chat room to join.

If you can't find anything like that then look for something like 'Send Chat Invitation' in the 'People' menu and invite yourself to the same room, 'Firefly'. Yes, sounds odd, but inviting yourself seems to work.

Edited to add more concrete info from ThatWeirdGirl.

Someone expressed an interest in the log from our Shindig this week. If anyone else is interested, I have an almost complete one. The shindig chat on 22/6/04 can be found at http://www.thatweirdgirl.com/files/shindig%2062204.txt

I have the lead up to the shindig, the chat for "Shindig" and the last part of "Serenity", as well as the goodnights. Otherwise, just ignore me.

thatweirdgirl, I have logs of all the pre vshins (I'm asleep by the time they actually start) if you want.

Might wanna ask some of the AIMers if it's okay to post their screen names (or replace it with Anon555) - eventho chats are logged, people don't think of IRC and chatting as something crawled by the search engines.

Ya, but I liked "Glory Road" better. It's maybe my second favorite of his novels (after Double Star) & definitely my favorite among those that did not win a Hugo.

Did you try JubalHershaw? Reckon I know why you didn't go for evelyncyrilgordon. How 'bout ScarGordon, with or without the "O"?
