Apologies, my bad! Time zones are now corrected in my original post.

I'm happy for you guys that this is doing so well.

I was able to briefly pop in last Saturday, but unfortunately didn't have as much time as I expected (the grocery store texted sooner than I anticipated that my order was ready for pick-up).

I'll be free around 4:30 Central this Sunday, so if it's still going, I'll certainly drop in again.

That sounds good to me! These Video Bat-Chats have been averaging approximately 4hrs from start to finish. Obviously no one is obliged to stay for any longer than they wish... :lol:

I don't want to make this into anything like a work meeting, but any suggestions for topics to be discussed?

I'm all ears and totally open to what anybody might wish to discuss. Feel free to throw some ideas around in this thread by all means or equally feel free to come just come to the call with armed with ideas.

One of the things Scott and I were going to potentially going to share with the VBC participants this week is the interactive map of real world filiming locations that we've been working. I have the ability to share my screen with those on the VBC call so you would be able to follow along and we can take you on a "virtual tour" as it were, with plenty of time for questions and discussion along the way.

All of this being said, the spontaneity of having different combinations of people in the "room" is definitely a big part of what makes Video Bat-Chat interesting, so nothing has to be too set in stone.

I don't know if this has been discussed, and I have yet to spot it in the posts I've seen, so forgive me if it has been mentioned, but do these "rooms" have a maximum capacity?
I find you to be odious, abhorrent and insegrevious.

Am I the longest-standing board member still currently active these days? I've been a member since 1998. Hard to fathom that much time passing, huh? I became a member a year after the original board was launched.

Anyway, I am planning on being in attendance this Sunday.

Thanks Ben!

I'm hoping to pop in again during the latter part this Sunday.

As for things to discuss, the filming locations sounds like a winner.

I'm also interested in things like favorite other appearances by cast members (lots of Bat character actors appeared in other 60's shows like Green Acres, Beverly Hillbillies, Munsters). Filming techniques - I've always wondered how the numerous phone conversations were filmed.

I'm also very intrigued about how much others believe Ward's claims that Adam constantly upstaged him. In recent viewings, I've come to believe there is merit to Ward's claims.

Those are just things that interest me, but they may be better covered in the board, as they have been in the past.

Hope to be in for a bit Sunday!

The Skype group call platform that we're using tops out at 50 participants.

See you on Sunday!

Wow, 50 is a decent crowd. Do you know how many can be in attendance before you notice any bandwidth latency? Just geeky curiosity.

1) Longest member standing? Possibly. Either you or High C probably from the David days. "Active"? Welllll... ;)
2) I think we're way safe of hitting the limit. We haven't had more than 10 at the same time and it went fine. The only thing is to let people know to mute their mics if not actively talking and to wear headphones if handy. But we address that as we go along in the active VBC session.

Hope to see you there buddy. Haven't talked in nearly 10 years.
