BG ANZAC - 22 MAR 0830GMT (with TeamViewer support)

Recommended Posts

BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) then background, etc.  most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, but if not feel free to read the entire post. :)



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, March 22nd.

0830 in London (GMT / Zulu)

1630 in Perth

1800 in Darwin

1900 in Adelaide

1830 in Brisbane

1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra (my time this week)

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.




Back home this week so will be able to host and play. :)


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 previously?


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


2. a. Might be scope to do another, brief, test of Mission 3 (frame rates, etc.). I have both a "full" version and a version with MGs, medics, etc. removed from all three sides, so we can "compare and contrast" performance.


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, crook - might have pertussis...


Don't know what it is, but it doesn't sound good.


Get better.


Hang on, just looked it up - Didn't you get shots for this last century when you were a child?

Hey Mark - got the test results back, negative on pertussis thankfully. Yes, it's an old vaccination thing, but its not lifetime effective. People in their 40s and above can catch it and need to get their vaccination updated, especially if you have grandkids or around newborns.
