Video Hangout, 19 November 2022 7pm Detroit time

Last year’s December all-Patronizer hangout worked pretty well, once I showed up. I’m thinking of doing that again next month. If you want me all to your high-class selves, you should probably show up this time. 19 November 2022, 7pm. The weekend before American Thanksgiving, so I won’t yet be bloated to unbearable proportions. Topics […]

Video Hangout, 22 October 2022

Hey, would you look at that! This month I’m setting the schedule early enough that I have a choice of days for the hangout. Will wonders never cease? Uh… yeah. Wonders will cease. I’m certain I’ll fubar this somehow. The next hangout will be at 10 AM EDT on 22 October 2022. I’ve checked the […]

September 2022 Video Hangout

My calendar has a recurring notice for the first of the month. “Write Sausage, schedule video hangout.” It pops up alarms and emails me. But I exist in a timeless void. Days of the week? Meaningless. The purpose of a month is to tell me if I should wear my regular Crocs or the fur-lined […]

Video Hangout, 20 August 2022 11AM EDT

We’re a little late this month, sorry. She Who Must Be Obeyed and I are taking shameless advantage of the decent weather before she returns to the grueling College Professor Forced Death March. She teaches psychiatric nursing, and has her hands full trying to teach 19-year-olds that the mentally ill are mostly harmless and more […]

Video Hangout, 16 July 2022 7PM EDT

Time for an evening meeting! I don’t get many folks joining the evening sessions. Pondering if I should just have them in the mornings, but I don’t want to cut out folks who might join evenings in future months. Being fair isn’t hard, but it is super annoying. See you there! Or not. < shrug […]

Video Hangout, 10am 18 June 2022

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that we’re boring, but we’re not exactly exciting either. Maybe we talk Terry Pratchett, or heavy metal, or pets, or the boundless stupidities of software. But the good news is, we’re always there for each other despite being locked inside by this pandemic. We’re doing the morning […]

May 2022 Video Hangout

It’s spring. We can leave the house without freezing. Why are we still meeting? Oh. Pandemic. Right. Saturday 14 May 2022, 7PM, to support the West Coast folks. I need a little more text to keep the invite below the preview, so here’s a snippet of the in-progress OpenBSD storage book. It’s fairly generic material […]

Video Hangout, 10 AM, 16 April 2022

Last month’s hang out was in the evening, so we will meet in the morning. 10 AM Detroit, on 16 April 2022. The zoom invite follows at the end of this message. I have a few new Patronizers at this level, and I’m always delighted to see new faces, so don’t be shy. If it […]

March 2022 Video Hangout

Welcome to False Spring, which is a step before Fool’s Spring, which comes before Taunting Spring. It’s a perfect time to sit inside and talk online while all any of us really wants to do is hang out on the taco shop patio and sample the abuela’s latest masterpieces. Saturday, 19 March, 7PM Detroit time. […]
