BG ANZAC - 15 FEB 0830GMT (with TeamViewer support)

Recommended Posts

New format of notice.


BLUF then background, etc.  most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is (I hope).



Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time.


Through a combination of democracy, state's rights and bl**dy mindedness, the country is now fractured into numerous time zones (three wasn't enough) for the next six months and we need to adjust the start time.


Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, February 15th.

0830 in London (GMT / Zulu)

1630 in Perth

1800 in Darwin

1900 in Adelaide

1830 in Brisbane

1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra

2130 NZST in Auckland


Your Local time: Local time for your part of the world


Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start


Mission will start promptly at 0830 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0800 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0830 GMT.


In game chat / Communications:


You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. This is detailed here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack


Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions:


We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like).




This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy.


Anyway we'll see how it goes.




This week back travelling again (Brisbane this week, Shoalwater Bay next) so will be running the session remotely.


That means I'll run the server but wont be able to do things in the 3D world - that means no whiteboard or other type sessions.


In terms of this Thursday night, depends on sign ups but:


1. If we get enough people coming back, perhaps run their solutions to the homework given out last week?


2. Discuss Rolling Thunder 18 - make sure people know what it is and they have put it in their diaries (or signed up).


3. Revisiting some "not so easy missions" from the past - probably harder still after 4.023. These need a few people to turn up.


4. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work?


As always, visitors / first timers / spectators are welcome.


Current Standard: 4.023


Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning.

Sorry gents, mornings aren't possible for me at the moment.  Will let you know when I can return.  Will attempt to make RT though (F/O if possible).

Ok I will stick my neck out if you like. Assuming enough people there. Others can then learn from my mistakes

Hi all - might be a bit late on this evening. Chinese New Year function at the in-laws, but thankfully they like to get started, and finished early. I haven't finished my homework...
