    Since the pandemic, I think everyone by now knows how to organize or join virtual meetings.

    So yesterday while chatting with Henry, we got this idea of using this modern medium to maybe meet up in the virtual world.
    Have a couple of beers, maybe some bass playing/demoing going live and have lots of laughs together.

    We could use Facebook Messenger rooms for this. People who want to join in do not need a Facebook account, only the person setting up the room does.

    All you need is a laptop/smartphone or a webcam on your pc. Me I have my bass pre's D.I. output hooked up 24/7 to the soundcard but any amp near a webcam mic will do. Let's not get too technical.

    I think the forum regulars can organize this very easily, a live room is set up in 2 minutes time.
    The idea of talking live with guys like Hardy, Henry, Nacho for instance seems cool to me. Maybe we can even get our managers Florin and Hector involved.

    What do you guys think? Ready to meet the faces you've been talking to in ASCII for the past years?
    Or are we too shy...

    Yeah, I'm shy too, truly. Hence the big mouth always open and shouting. It keeps the people away. :)

    Listen, I'm only into Warwicks as a way to possibly have a sofa to sleep on if my wife and I ever make it to Europe. Luv u guys!

    Plus, I just assume you all look like Hardy. Or DiMarco. Or a cross between the two.

    Also, you've all seen me. Nothing to hide here :rolleyes:

    While testing Facebook Messenger rooms, it turned out the audio quality is really bad.
    So after discussing some with Nacho, I found Google Meet (formerly Hangouts Meet) - Free Video Meetings
    Google Meet is free to use without any session time restrictions until June 2021. After that the free version will allow 1 hour max.

    I don't like Zoom because they keep recordings to do fck knows what with so we tested Google Meet.
    Hardy chimed in, so did Nacho. Things are looking great so far! You need nothing but your browser to use Google Meet so no extra software required.

    All we need now is a date and time. I think around 20:00 in the evening will be best? Friday? Saturday? Let's do this.
