Meanwhile, a weirdo 50 year old dude would be the norm for this meeting.
@purr1n you really need to be more careful next time you’re walking around home in your underwear
Anyone know where I can buy a COVID-free dog mask for this thing?
There's history behind that. Splinter group didn't like the direction SBAF was going and created their own ChangChat to relive the glory days of Changstar. Basically become incel chat group which brought out the worse in people, which culminated with one member posting a confessional on YouTube. Changstar also had a chatbox, which left the forum with no good content, because the best questions and answers were left in the chatbox.
I would make it just a few people on their own spare time, not official (the chat part at least).
Easy cultivation? Video proof ownership of SBAF t-shirt required. It's like two-factor. Bypass LOL: funny part is now my girlfriend knows she has a schiit stack on her chest and why (easy fellas...srsly).
Oh please @yotacowboy, my GF Schiit Stack is bigger than yours.
Serious Note: If any Friend want to talk to me on video just cause you feel like it, you don't have to wait until Saturday to talk to me. Hit me up and we can plan a time. I need distractions since I'm in my apt all the time and going stir crazy.
Ah ok I didn't know there was a history there. Your reasons are valid for sure.
Yeah, I guess I was accused of liberal thinking. Either I'm too right or I'm too left.
The above is the culmination or near culmination of everything. Not really important you know what went on before, although you can get hints. It's my understanding that ChangChat fizzled out or simply lost interest in trying to steer the direction of SBAF. I would say that SBAF is a lot more drama free now.
Believe it or not, one dude joined up and donated, thinking I was a secret banner holder of sorts for the alt-right (is that even a thing now in 2020?) When I dismissed the movement, this person took umbrage, demanded a refund of contributions, and asked that his account be deleted.
It's funny. Someone had told me that I was likely "more right than Genghis Khan himself, except that I learned when to STFU because I worked in Hollyweird and lived in California". Now I think: yup, damn you're damn right I learned when to STFU.
This is a neat idea. Can we participate from abroad? I’d love to just put face to names.
holy shit 1 hour and 5 min video??!! that's crazy. wasn't he the guy who came up with the cork mod for hd800? I remember seeing him post when people were arguing about gun control. i'm guessing he got banned again from that?
Of course! That's the idea. At my RL job, I love talking to our colleagues around the world via videochat at all strange hours. This includes India. I don't think this time works well for you. We could schedule a 9pm chat for the second one. I figured this would be a good time to bring people together in light of CV-19. I was hoping for a meet later this year, but I don't think this will happen.
you have a lot of people that talk crap about you and sbaf behind your back on discord. i am on Crinacle's iem discord server and people like @animus who say all sorts of bad shit about you and this site but then they post on this message board come off as smiling snakes
Comes with the territory. I actually don't hold it against anyone, especially if they are younger. I get it, I'm totally cool with it. I was the same way: hot-headed, quick to judge, easily frustrated, bitched about everyone and everything, etc. Don't we all wish we could have been as wise as we are now ten, twenty, thirty years ago? Done things a bit differently?
Well maybe not. I could have ended up like warrenpeachy licking Jude's butthole instead of running SBAF. Star Trek explains this well: https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Tapestry_(episode)
Which Friend wants to do a quick video chat with me tonight with Zoom? I want to test the camera on my Thinkpad laptop so I look cute this Saturday. I'm drinking beer as we speak.
I always use my company's laptop for video cameras, but not my personal Thinkpad.
It can't be worse than my MacBook's 720p webcam. I was thinking I'd just use my phone.
Oh yeah - I’d have gotten laid more and drank and smoked and... less.
Who cares, it's the ol' bar anaolgy again, and this is the internet, all the phonies do double face and spew shit. 99.9% of the shit talkers wouldn't come face to face on their own...
EDIT: Even the discord chats have mutinied and changed allegiance several times over, lol
I'd love to be a part of this, although my contribution will be extremely limited due to my own lack of knowledge. But I'd love to meet more members! Don't have a webcam though, perhaps I'll just use my phone like @Bill-P.
I was a sperm and an egg. Not sure how much has improved since then.
I would be down. Nothing better to do here at home all day.
Sure. Although in all seriousness, most apps I can think of won't work well when there's "too many people" which it seems like this will be.
Also, this is something I'm personally against, but should we have a very rough / approximate list of talking points? With 15-25+ on virtual conference all at once, obviously not going to work with all of us trying to talk over each other at once unlike say meets where we can all just talk, listen to gear, and do whatever else freely.
Separate names with a comma.
