The way other Columbo fans have done it in the past, is to post a proposed chat time here on the Forum, and folks sort of agree on a time to be there.
If you try it, remember to specify your time zone. For example, London is 5 hours later than Eastern USA.
Yes Ted,someone tried to start it up since I have been here....but it didn't ever happen.
Ok, how about everyone proposes a time, and then we will see what we have in common and that is when we will do it. Isnt that logical?
Well go ahead and start it up
ok, the most logical way is the following
12pm-3pm 3-6pm 6-9pm 9-12pm same thing am
come on, just post ur times and thats it
well....since i live on this site,(ted has actually installed a bedroom here for me!!! very comfy..thanks ted!) any time would be good for me.
now you have to remember, michael, that there are a lot of people from the uk...which is 5 hours later than us here on the east coast of the us...and headache is an hour before us...and there are some kiddies that are on the west coast which is 3 hours before us......so we have to take all of this into account.........as i have said..this has been tried before...but people here have explained that a place like this works a lot better as a forum rather than a chat place......but i don't want to be a downer...let's just see what kind of a response you get and take it from there...
...and us Sydneysiders are at the moment 11 hours ahead of London.
Wow! So that would mean the Sydney folks would be a whopping 16hours ahead of us on the east coast of the US!
but that is till not impossible, I am a member of the artofproblemsolving.com forum where we always have trivias in a chat room, of course they have much more members there. Let me post a time, for example, be here at 12AM today pennyslvania time which is in about 1.5 ohurs and chat!! Lets get started.
do you mean midnight?
Michael....just go in there now....I don't know if I could make it till then....
Michael.........you had better be there at midnight...I stayed up watching old movies on tv just so I could be awake for this freakin chat thingy.......if you aren't there....well...Columbo has got his newest case on his hands....it's about this Jersey girl who murders some guy named Mike in PA!!
come there now
or i will go sleep
Michael..Michael..Michael...sorry is just not going to cut it right now....I tried again to see if you were there and you weren't....I should have known better...I was duped by you once, and now I have been duped again.....maybe it is my fault for being so gullible and naive....but, boy, and you are truly proving yourself to be just a "boy"....you did it to me again.....not nice, my friend...not nice at all.........I am not angry...only tired and a bit ticked at you......I promise you this...I will not allow myself to be a part of your jokes anymore...I will talk to you about Columbo here on the forum and I will discuss the show with you...but you have really made an...(I don't think I can say the real word here...but I will try)...you have really made an ass of yourself to me...and I am a very forgiving and kind person..to the point where someone really has to screw with me royally in order for me to feel that way...............and I know you will come back with some excuse or apology or whatever...and who knows?..it could be a glich in the chat room..but I highly doubt that considering the professional input of Ted and Steve and their cohorts.........but enough already, Michael...you have pulled my chain once too often....and it doesn't feel good....I'm not used to it....I don't treat people that way and I don't expect to be treated that way either...
To everybody else here...I am sorry for this post...I really am....It just mucks up all the good stuff that has been happening on here lately...lots of great insightful thoughtful stuff....I would have just emailed him but he doesn't list his address. Again I am sorry that I had to post this, but I do hope all you guys understand.....
Oh Heavens!!!! The Battling Bickersons are at it again!!!!
Maybe it was just a glitch Cassa. The other day I tried to get into to chat room and it almost crashed my computer, I ended up just closing the Columbo page. And also Cassa, you know things sometimes crop up, people have to rush off and do things at the shortest of notice. Well, I don't know, but maybe Michael didn't do it on purpose...
Maybe you are right Paul.....But I was tired...and I shouldn't have stayed up....and I waited for nothing...but I will agree with you that it could have been a glitch or he could have had something come up......so....oh whatever.........
Dont think this will ever take off but if you are ever thinking of having everyone in a chat room at the same time give lots of advance notice. Im not suggesting that you follow this idea but if it was set for 23 november at 23:25 GMT then people could get prepared for it to be there at that time.
Also maybe there was a problem and michael had to be elsewhere, who knows. Forgive and move on.
Its been good around here recently (im a very happy lurker) but if my memory was better then i would paste more but you all put me to shame. You're all so nice and its good to be here all be it quiet.
After my last post I went to the chat room and since no-one was there I left, I mean what else was I supposed to do, I cant just wait there till somebody comes cause that can never happen and if u make a click to go somewhere else, it wont work.
but i think we hsould stil have the chats.
