    Virtual TZ GTG. . .

    To promote social separation, but also keep the forum spirit alive: I propose hosting a vitual GTG via “zoom” online platform.

    prerequisites

    a computer or mobile device with audio and visual capabilities.
    a willingness to share thoughts and musing on watches
    maybe a couple of beers on hand

    Who would be up for it?

    Martyn

    You should have been there last night OP - the first virtual McrGTG via zoom! (See thread in the G&D).

    It worked well, and was a good laugh.

    Count me in for future events.

    I can’t join you guys at this time but think it’s a great idea to alleviate the current status quo. Hope it goes well

    Hi Martyn, this is a great idea.

    Have you got a full zoom license?

    Just checking as I think you only get 40mins if you’’re on the free version and there’’s more than two participants in your conference.

    I have a free license and it works perfectly.

    For free you get 40mins limit if there are three or more people joined - a limit of 100 can join the call. But on todays meeting zoom kindly removed the 40min limit for free anyway and we stayed online for a little over one hour.

    Worst case - you can just stop / start the same meeting for 45min calls - which allows for comfort breaks!

    Martyn - can you say a bit more about how Zoom removed the time cap - did you know about it in advance or was it an unexpected bonus?

    It was unexpected bonus during the call - I had a pop-up message saying time limit had been removed.

    Well I really enjoyed that Gents. It would be good to capture everyone’s usernames on this thread to aid my shocking memory!

    Ps. Thanks for organising Martyn.
    Pps. It was almost 2 hours!

    One planned every two weeks for the forceable - anyone is welcome - it’s been good so far - next on 23rd (next week)

    Topic for 23rd has already been suggested: “bring along / share an un-usual watch” can be any price bracket. Of course we can have any thing else - it’s not a formal group!

    I’ll try and do screen grab to share - if that’s acceptable to everyone on the call.

    Until then. Happy Thursday!!
