do people use the conference at the time that is allotted for broadcast? i remember having some lovely discussions there & would be very interested in joining back in or getting it going again!

@nydel oooh, party-line on anonradio via sdf voip?! That sounds fantastic. I want in

@tomasino super fun right!? i think it technically just started its hour a few minutes ago. but as i said i don’t know whether it’s still going.

@tomasino i will be right back i had to finish the spaghetti and put it in a thing

@solderpunk @tomasino let’s do it again soon! there was some very poignant agreement on the stupidity of cryptocurrency and vegan fast food last time that i wouldn’t mind continuing.

@nydel @tomasino Sadly I've realised that the OpenVOIP slot is not really any less terrible for me than the OpenMic slot, from a timezone perspective, so I might have to miss out after all.

@solderpunk @nydel when is the next time slot? I bet it's going to be hard for me too

@tomasino @nydel OpenVOIP is 0200 to 0300 UTC, i.e. 4am-5am for me. OpenMic follows immediately afterward. I would be using OpenMic to trial run doing my show if it weren't for the fact that I'm never up that early.

@solderpunk @tomasino @nydel this would be a similarly inconvenient time for Brits (0300-0400 here also offset depending on whether summer time is in operation).

I'm also not sure if my sdf membership has been upgraded to full (I did make the paypal payment but not sure if I allocated it to the USA or Euro bit of sdf and am not sure how to check what facilities I currently have, still very new to sdf..)

@vfrmedia @tomasino @nydel If you run `uinfo` after logging in you can see what membership tier you are currently on. is, IMHO, lamentably isolated from the US server and undermaintained (even worse than SDF proper). I would not be surprised to find out that no membership level on the EU server gives you access to the VOIP system, but I could be wrong.


@solderpunk @tomasino @vfrmedia just a reminder, anyone can dial in to the sdf switchboard and follow the extension to the conference bridge. i know we prefer people use their sip credentials but in a special case such as waiting on membership during holidays i think it is okay to do it that way if you happen to be awake & talky during the hour :)
