Ken, ooooh, so that is the mystery solved!!!  What a pleasure it will be, I will try hard to get on the ventrillo to listen in, I am snoopy.  I will need to figure out the mic thing one day, but for now, snooping and typing.  That would be 3:00 PM my time.  What time do you think Michael will stay on til?  Curiousity never got this cat.  Have a wonderful and beautifully awesome day, Cindi

Well Cindi, if you can do guess I'm gonna have to try too!  I am very interested in the no chemical natural small cell, going to go that way if the bees let me!  I love lurking & snooping too!  This inquiring mind wants to know!  Have a great sunny day!!

I believe that you should get set up before the last minute if you are interested so you can make sure everything works.  This is going to be to good to pass up. So get off the sidlines and get ventrilo set up on the computer so you can join in the fun. No one that has tried the chat has said they did not like it once they gave it a try.

PS i will be glad to help anyone get set up just pm me.

Dallas Makes a VERY GOOD POINT!!!!!

Don't wait until the last minute to setup your Ventrilo Chat, it isn't difficult at all and most always there is someone there to assist you (especially in the evenings Eastern US time) but don't wait until you want to talk with any guests BEFORE you start installing the small program needed and the short time it takes to setup the mic.

JUST FYI.... When you connect to the Ventrilo Server, you will automatically hear people talking if they are chatting away - the reciever part defaults so you can HEAR everything.

To TEXT CHAT there is a button to the right of the Ventrilo Screen says CHAT - click on that and a text chat window pops up. You can now type to the people who you are listening to (note: they can only read your type if they have the letter "C" next to their name in the username list - it simply means their text chat is also open.

Setting up the mic can take a few minute of mild tweaking (nothing difficult) but it makes things easier if you do things when the crowds are a bit smaller and guests aren't busy answering question or other members chatting away.

The important part is "You being there!" The info you can Glean from any of these special guest appearances or "Honestly" the knowledge you can share ANY night of the week, makes us all better beekeepers and friends.

So, Ventrilo Chat is growing, we are at 20 members at one time capable and growing. We have many rooms setup so that if you wish to talk to one or more people in more private way, you can simple click on another room title and you will move there until you click back to the main room.

Voice Chat is NOT NEW to many of us, we have used it nearly 2 years. It has grown from a small dedicated group yearning to make friends and share in our hobby, and today the average night has around a dozen or more people coming in for sometimes hours to hang out with their friends and fellow beekeepers.

For more info: launch the main topic in this forum to learn everything you'll need to install Ventrilo Chat in minutes and it will likely be the best spent few minutes of your beekeeping voyage!

JOhn, I like that jargon about the "beekeeping voyage", yep, it seems that that is what it is a voyage, an adventure that never stops, kind of like the trip that my Son-in-Law said when we get too old and can't remember anything, that he would send us on, paid by him, hee, hee.  He said that we could go to places every day, over and over, but they would seem like a new adventure.  Hee, hee, oh we laughed over that one (but sometimes I wonder if he really meant it).  No, only kidding, he loves us to pieces and would do everything in his power to look after us well, in those old age days, where we may need help, hee, hee, oh no, off topic and ramblin', my apology, truly  evil cheesy  Have a great and beautiful day, loving this life we live.  Cindi

For our chat with Michael Bush this evening,we would like to keep communication with Michael to the text chat side. I'm sure with cooperation this will go well. If you don't already know Michael,here is his web site:
http://bushfarms.com/bees.htm
If you want you can  read up and if you have any questions on his experiences or styles ,I'm sure he'll help as much as possible.
 Since we may be limited time wise,lets try to keep the subject matter directed to bee questions at this time and make the best of the time Michael has been so kind to take with us!
  Hope to see you tonight,                                                Ken(Buzzbee)

I installed the chat software, but I'll be texting because I gave my mic to my grand daughter a few months ago.  Smiley I'll try to remember to join you all this evening.

Ann has me all set up on the laptop. I'm usually listening when Ann is on the chat using the PC but now I'll be able to see what people are typing as well. Might learn something in the process.  grin Really looking forward to it !!
