A Date For Your Diary 11 November 2012


New York



Sao Paulo



London



Paris



We are going to run another conference round-table voice chat using Skype, this is slightly later in the month because I wanted to avoid the weekend when the clocks change in the US!

I'm sure we are gradually getting to know each other's voices, but I will make a point of going 'around the table' to get everyone to introduce themselves this time.

So...When, Where, What, Who and How?

When? - Sunday 11 November from 11am (US East Coast time), 4pm London time, 5 pm Paris time etc.  See the clocks at the top of this post to see roughly what time you should be on line.

Where? - an on-line chat using Skype.

What do I need? - just a micro-phone and some head phones(in ear phones work fine) and a free Skype account. Using headphones reduces 'echo' on the call.

Who - All of you... connect up with Philofaxy and we will attempt to get as many of us linked in to the audio conference as possible. Come and listen if you don't want to chat.

How -
  1. Connect to Philofaxy by firstly searching for Philofaxy in Skype, I will then add you as a contact.
  2. Then  'Start Chat',  I will then add you in to the chat room. 
  3. Then if you request it, I can add you to the audio conference as well. But if you just want to chat via keyboard that's fine. That way it's slightly less hectic for me! 
Come and join in the fun, even if you only pop in to say hello...

As with previous round-tables there will also be a parallel text chat room going at the same time as the voice conference.

If you need any assistance setting up Skype, please pop a comment in this post and I will try and help you get one line. Skype is free for computer to computer calls....

Here is my post on how to improve your Skype audio with headphones or a headset.

Hope to be chatting with you on Sunday 11 November 2012

  2. i have never been able to join in the round table, as in the past it has never seemed to work out with my schedule. Is it possible to just join in the text chat portion? I don't have a mic at this time. The one on my laptop is not working. I do have headphones though. Sooner or later I will make it to one of these.

    1. Yes it possible to just join in the text part and/or just listen to the chat as well.

      English isn't everyone's first language and I know from living here in France that reading French and understanding it is a lot different to the spoken word!!

      So yes join in next Sunday. To join in just answer the call when I come on line and if you don't want to talk but just listen mute your mic in Skype and then we won't get any background noise, but you will be able to listen and type in the text bit.
