Andrew Roughan has announced the return of a2central.comâ€™s weekly Downunder Chat:
After a hiatus… it is time for a come back.
Calling all Apple II enthusiasts who are awake between 9pm and 11pm Australian Eastern Summer Time on Friday nights to visit the #a2c.chat channel on the A2Central IRC server.
That’s probably likely to be Aussies, Kiwis, people in Asia who aren’t working late, people in Europe who don’t have a day job, and insomniacs from the USA… but everyone is welcome.
I would like to discuss another gathering of like-minded individuals. Prior discussions on this seemed to indicate that the Sydney area was a central point. Validation of this from those who would attend is important before taking the next step to confirm a venue.
Other discussion topics will include where participants are located, local introductions, interests, projects, etc.
There is an informal Australian Apple II enthusiast email list that I maintain, so if you can’t make the chat but would like to be included in this then let me know.
The chat will be hosted on irc.a2central.com, channel #a2c.chat – use your favorite IRC client.
Connection on the bare metal is possible with an Apple IIgs using the Samurai IRC CDA
Every Friday 9pm-11pm AEST
If necessary, check how the time in your location corresponds with Sydney on this site:
We are ahead of most of the world.
I won’t be able to make every week, so the facilitation will be done by regular chat attendee Jonnyboy – Jon Co.
Hope to see you there!
