But... that's during the Germany vs. Uruguay game. Is that such a good idea?

About 2 hours later would probably be better if you want more people to join. Just saying.

I will definitely not be online during the game tonight, and I'll have to wait and see what happens (= how long it takes and whether I'm still awake enough afterwards), so I'm not making any promises. I would also have to figure out how it all works, which could be a problem for this Skypie newbie at that time of day...

Wait. Are you telling me that I got up this morning for nothing? You're making us wait for football. . . Two whole hours.

I just thought it best to warn you early so that you don't go online and find out that everyone's gone to watch football. At least now you know why people won't be online.

Well, all right. Not all of us will be watching football, though. Might as well get on Skype anyway. Just in case.

Huh. Well, as I'm not a football fan I guess I'll just have to sit around waiting for you to come online. I got up at 9.55 for this! And that's very early by my summer standards you know. We could always postpone it to a later date I suppose.

I suppose that we could always wait two hours two. We've already waited one. Is another one going to kill us?

Skyping is happening now. Though, no Tolkien topics as of yet.

Germany won the game! However, it's way too hot to sit upstairs at my computer, so I will take a rain check and hope it works out next time. Have fun!!

"In Soviet Russia, Barrow Downs goes on you!"

It was the best way we could find to spend seven hours on a Saturday afternoon. Some people were wise enough to leave the madness early, but others were foolish and stuck around until the end. I think the part that was most on-topic was after everyone but TheGreatElvenWarrior, Loslote, and myself had left. We read the end of Mount Doom! Most of the time it was utter nonsense though; Barrow-Downs jokes, Jethro Tull referencing, the whole thing. I only wish it could have lasted longer.

We had our Skyping madness. And now it's over. It was quite fun, I think anyway. We started off with Lottie, Lauri, and myself. We had a lovely conversation with Alaskan Downers adding sally soon after. We did some talking about non-Tolkien related things and decided to bother some other Downers to join. This is where Hookbill joined in. We typed for about five minutes when Enw joined after his football game.
We chatted about nothings and Jelly Babies for probably half an hour before the actual call started. Most of it was off-topic, so I will not go into it here, but we did read some poems and songs from The Lord of the Rings. That bit was fun but we soon got off topic again. The joys of Skype!
Anyway, Hookbill left early and Lottie had to leave for some time. But it was fun anyway. We probably kept Enw up a bit too long, though.
As Lauri said: the most on topic we got was when there were just us Alaskans left.

It was grand and I only look forward to doing another in the near future.

Skype was epic. We read a few poems and songs at the very beginning, and we kept the British-type people up later than we probably should have. I missed part at the beginning, but otherwise was there for most of it. We had a ton of fun. Alas, Steve did not bring out his saxaphone, but there was a good reason for this. My nose was bitten off by Sally, who was upset with me for my continual dying (coughing). We lost The Game rather often (I just lost The Game) and the others disscussed Doctor Who and such incomprehensible things. (Next time, guys, I'm going to start off on Australian Rules Football - then you'll be just as lost. ) Steve abducted TGEW, and Sally was upset that he didn't take her, too. Steve also decided to make a dictionary with his own personal definitions for everything, leaving out words he doesn't want (such as gullible). Twas epically fun!

Eonwe didn't really take me with him in his TARDIS, but I wish he would have.


I think that in the event we all ended up changing the subject line and conversation picture waay too many times.

Ah, sorry I couldn't participate this time! I'm still recovering from a nasty stomach infection and was in no condition to post or talk much for most of the past four days. Anyway, congratulations on pulling it off once again, and I'm naturally dying with curiosity to hear any recordings you may have made!

That's too bad, Pitchie. We missed you.
I actually don't think that we made any recordings this time around. The conversation sort of went like this:
Enw
"Is anybody recording this?"
Hookbill
"I have some recording software on my laptop, but I don't feel like getting it out right now."
Enw
"Oh, well. . .(gives suggestion)"
Hookbill
"I don't have that on my computer; it's a desktop."

So those in the group who could actually operate technology couldn't do anything, so we didn't record.

Actually, for further reference, I think that Skype has a recording software that you can download onto your computer. I'm not sure how it works or how well, but we might consider using that next time if somebody want to test it out.

We did indeed miss you. I wanted to read Fog on the Barrow-Downs, but without you as Bombadil I couldn't find the will to convince everyone to do it.

You don't think that Doctor Who and Beatles references are material for a Tolkien Discussion Forum? Rubbish!

Oh no! Double posting.

When is the next feasible date that we could have another call? I'd, personally, like to have another soon. But whatever works for all you other Skypers.

I believe that we wanted to do another Skype call this weekend. Were we going to arrange this, and who would be participating if we did do it this weekend?

If nobody can be there on one weekend, we'll just do it the next. However, we'll need to find a good date for most, if not all Skypers.

You didn't do it yet? I'm going to have skip spence (and Greenie) here, starting tomorrow, and if you do it at any other time than Saturday night, I could try to convince them to join.

I have stuffs Sunday morning, but after one-ish I should be available. That might be too late at night for the Finn-type people, though.

This weekend. We're GMT +2 (EST -7) and could probably stay up quite late, although the earlier the better.

Therefore you're two hours ahead of my watch. How about 20.00 or 21.00 GMT? Should be late enough for Alaskans and not too late for Finns.

I guess that any time we use would be fine, just as long as it's not Enw Standard Time.

But isn't Enw Standard Time = GMT? Or is that a reference to his personal biorhythm?

He does not operate on GMT, but his own time zone. The rumour is that he doesn't actually ever sleep, but is always up and at his computer.

Anyway, that's good that it works for you. How far ahead of GMT are you, Pitch?

Two hours with the daylight saving. But I'm on annual leave, so I don't have to worry about getting up early on Monday (except that my wife will make me pay if I'm not functioning by Monday noon, but I can live with that).

All right.
Do you think that we have enough Downers to have a call?

So far it looks like it's Agan (+skip +Greenie?), Lottie, you and me (unless I've forgotten someone); sounds good enough to start with, doesn't it?
