Talk Gadget

It's time to find out if Talk Gadget works, and is easy to handle. Send me your email address if you can be online at 7 PM eastern time. I will attempt to invite you into a chat. I'm getting there from this page: http://www.google.com/talk/ and clicking on Launch Google talk gadget. I don't think you need to go to that page. Possibly nothing will happen.

Awww! I love your disclaimer: Possibly nothing will happen.
It's when you talk like this that I think you're British.

I'll be ready

I can't get Julie 's email into my contacts. I've sent the invites, but I'm not sure what I'm inviting you to.

Evil Editor said...

Apparently I'mm supposed to start a chat with one person andthen we can invite as many as we wish to join.

Kiersten said...

The link it sends to my yahoo address doesn't work. I sent you my gmail one, maybe that will work better.

Evil Editor said...

Is anyone there?

Evil Editor said...

You haven't received an invitation?

Kiersten said...

I received five invitations, but the link takes me to sign into gmail, and then nowhere.

oops, thought this was still moderated.

Julie Weathers said...

Well, poo. I wanted to listen to you all.

Dave F. said...

We tried but no one is quite sure of what happened. I talked with EE and Kiersten but we couldn't get invites out to others. I'm not sure why.

Julie Weathers said...

It's because I'm not one of the cool kids.

Evil Editor said...

I had 4 email addresses, two of them made it into the room. We theorized that maybe you have to put me on your talk gadget contact list before I can invite you in. In any case, a chat room materialized, but we're afraid some people will have trouble getting in, and we decided to go back to chatting on the blog, with refreshing the page if you haven't commented recently.

I downloaded Googletalk because clicking on the link didn't do anything. I felt forced to create a gmail account; out of a desire to be perceived as a faithful minion, I created one. Then I invited evledtr, but he wasn't there, and I wanted to be in HIS CHAT, not invite him to mine. So I am willing to try again, if I am so needed.

never, never, never...

Julie Weathers said...

Well, I downloaded the site so maybe we can do it again sometime.

Robin S. said...

Oh hell. I missed this. Is it too late???

freddie said...

Got it. Will make a note.

freddie said...

We didn't have the secret password, Julie.

ChrisEldin said...

So, are you still chatting?

What are we going to chat about? Or should I say, *who*?

I want some beers.

freddie said...

I missed it, too.

Julie Weathers said...

Yes, Freddie, they invited us to the clubhouse and then didn't give us the secret password. So mean.

Next they'll probably say, "no girls allowed" except Miss K because she brings cookies.

Rotten, mean guys.

Robin S. said...

I just watched the American women whoop on the Brazilians.

I don't think EE is gonna chat much until the Olympics are over, especially on beahc volleyball bikini nights.

Robin S. said...

Well, dammit. OK. I get it.

No chatting here or on the other thingie, huh?

I'm going to bed, then...

Kiersten said...

It's true. I'm good at bribery.

(Actually, I just lucked onto figuring out how it worked.)

Dave F. said...

I got a phone call from my Mother tonight. She asked what a "BISHOP'S BIRD STUMP" was because I gave her "To say nothing of the dog"... and she said she never heard of a thing like that.

It was an amusing phone call.

I slept through the whole thing — a trick I plan to use again come the nuclear holocaust.

Seriously, though — did this work? I always find these live chats fun.

sylvia said...

Ooops, missed this but let me know if you try again.

LOL Dave, I can imagine that was a weird one. :)

Robin S. said...

Oh, come on, EE.

Can we please try again tonight?

(If there's no nuclear holocaust between now and then, maybe Whirl will be there, too.)
