2010-11-27 [Ash]: Let's have the write out on the 30th! The last day!
2010-11-27 [Annie]: Okay, the 30th is a good day for me. I have no classes that day. Other thoughts? Days? Times? Please use EST.
I would personally prefer sometime before 8 p.m. EST. Like anytime between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST (starting as early as 10 a.m. or ending as late as 8 p.m.).
If anybody has trouble figuring out what time it is for them...this site is convenient for converting times between time zones: http://www.tim
Just convert from US/Eastern to whatever your time zone is.
2010-11-27 [Ash]: Oh, you're in the same time zone as me. How about at Noon?
2010-11-27 [Annie]: Actually that's not my time zone, just thought it was the most universally known. Noon works for me, that's a great time. :) 12-2 EST would be great for me. Hopefully other people will contribute a good time for them. If not, we'll just aim for 12-2 EST. :D
2010-11-28 [Ash]: Okay! :)
2010-11-28 [Veltzeh]: So... what does "write-out" mean and why can't we use UTC (because THAT's universally known!)? ;)
2010-11-28 [Annie]: Well, traditionally a write-out is when NaNo people gather together at like bookstores or libraries and spend some designated amount of time writing in each other's presence, taking a little time to talk here and there and make it a pleasant, social experience. The idea is to get a ton of words written without it being totally grueling. Usually there are refreshments. :) And usually it's called a write-in because they do it at the beginning of the month. :P But since we're a non-traditiona
Ours is basically just a celebratory chat/writing session...sinc
2010-11-28 [Veltzeh]: Don't be so USA-centric! :P
2010-11-28 [Annie]: Haha...have mercy! I'm not USA-centric! -cries- I was actually hoping to get everybody's input earlier so we could all pitch a suggestion for the timezone, but nobody said anything. Let's see if Tyr will give some input.
I did offer a time zone converter...th
2010-11-29 [Ash]: Well, noon is 7 pm UTC, why don't we put it up as 12Pm-2 EST/ 7PM-9 UTC? Is that a good time for you Veltzeh, I won't be up before 10AM/3pm UTC.
2010-11-29 [Veltzeh]: That would be 21–23 for me on a weekday... but then again, it's not like I wouldn't stay up late anyway. X)
2010-11-29 [Veltzeh]: Can I change the server and channel name to match the same channel I created so that I don't need to join this separately?
2010-11-29 [Annie]: I'm not sure what you mean Veltzeh. This one doesn't require logging in...so you don't need to join anything? Just confused since it seems like there shouldn't be any problem. I also like the name I chose for the channel - "WCWrite-out." :) Also, this chat will only exist/be in use during NaNo write-outs, so it's not an official WC chat or anything. And great suggestion Ash. Pleasing everyone ftw. :)
2010-11-29 [Veltzeh]: I mostly mean that I wouldn't want to log into that chat and keep a separate browser window just for it when I could use my real IRC client...
2010-11-29 [Ash]: Well if your not going to stay up for it, and we are only using it once, why don't we keep it the way it is?
2010-11-30 [Annie]: Oh I think he was planning on joining us, he was just complaining :P Would one hour earlier be better Veltzeh?
And I'm still totally confused lol...do you host a server? And couldn't you close your IRC client instead of my super awesome widget handiwork? :P
2010-11-30 [Ash]: We can move it an hour earlier.
2010-11-30 [Annie]: Woot
2010-11-30 [Ash]: I'm on already for the write-out!
2010-11-30 [Veltzeh]: I have five or six IRC server connections open on my IRC client, so no, I'm not going to close it. X) My unstable internet is a bigger risk...
And fine, I'll join that one, but I'll probably be a little unresponsive.
2010-12-02 [Annie]: Taking down the chat widget now that the write-out is over. Next year another chat can be put up...
