so i mentioned this on twitter.....yesterday??

It was a passing thought.

WHAT IF I STREAMED DAN VS FOR SOME OF YOU GUYS and we all watched it together?!

That's how it started. A passing thought... but when a couple people expressed interested I looked into making this a reality. My conclusions are: my computer cannot do this.

so then Kayla came in and saved the day!!! my co-conspirator in everything I do...!

So basically it's come down to this: We can absolutely stream Dan Vs for you.

If you are interested here is what I am curious about:

-What day are you interested in doing this?

-What chat program would you prefer to use so we can ~hang out~ while watching the same video. (optionally we can use the site we're streaming from (twitch) but if we use a program most people have installed already it prevents you from having to sign up somewhere else)

-If Chat program: Voice Chat or no? I would be okay with talking to you guys during this BECAUSE ITS DAN VS if you guys would be alright with me in general and my (slightly) squeaky PS3 headset I use on my PC. However if we did this this pretty much means we'd have to use skype...!

let me know and then we can set this up and Kayla and I will make up a playlist of episodes and finalize the details.

yaaay im excited :x

What day: it depends on the time. What time are you planning to do this? Starting next week I will be working odd hours, so my availability varies day by day.

Chat program: I think AIM is the only thing I have installed. But hopefully the site you stream from will have a functioning chat.

Voice chat: I don't know how to set up voice chat on my computer, or if it's even possible since I have no headset... but I kind of hate my voice anyway. >__> I don't mind if you guys do voice chat, however; just as long as I can reply in text.

I'm shopping for a day, I mean, I work every day except mondays, but I assume monday is usually an off day for most people. I was just going to host it whenever people were available (barring Kayla and I not being at work) and then just lack of sleep my next work day or something because im responsible lol

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION THOUGH I was thinking a saturday? The hardest thing about juggling times is that there is some people from Europe interested too and I am so far in the past by the time I'm home from work on saturday (like 5pm-ish) that's...midnight? one am? lol.

I mean, unless Monday DOES work for people, in which case, i am home all day doing nothing. :b

Also for programs, I think we're going to end up using skype? the stream site does have a chat but it would require having everyone register an account there to use it. skype has both voice and text chat (in the same group, so some people could be on mic and some people just typing) and a mostly everyone has suggested skype already...? I looked into how to do group stuff on skype and it seems super easy (i don't really use it much myself XD) so yeah...

I may or may not be here this coming Saturday... but assuming I'm here, any time on Saturday is fine. I'm also available all day on the 14th, 21st, and 28th Saturdays... though I have to get to bed semi-early on the 21st.

This Monday works for me. On Monday the 9th I have a doctor's appointment, but that should only take an hour in the middle of the day.

As for the time: most nights I would have no problem with midnight or 1 am central. Maybe even midnight or 1 am eastern (which would be 2 - 3 am here), assuming I don't need to wake up early the following morning.

Come to think of it, I believe I have a Skype account already. One of my friends convinced me to sign up in 2011 so I could talk to him... and then we never used it. XD

Since I'm the most chronically unavailable, I'd rather not throw my availability into the pot just in case I end up delaying everybody else. I mean of course I'd like to join, but I don't want to ruin everyone else's chances by being busy if the best time for everyone turns out to not be the best for me. And I think if it goes well enough, there might be other streams that you guys host too!

As for chat program, anything is fine. Skype is really great for group chats (both voice and text) buuut it's also a resource hog, so I think it'd depend on how well everyone's machines can handle that along with the stream.

I'm thinking of just offering up a saturday to do this since i think that's a day most people would be available... no one has actually suggested a day to me yet, but my only day off is monday which i am already assuming won't work for most. i mean... I think kayla is at class or work or something on monday as it is AND SHE HAS THE COMPUTER WE NEED XD; so...

We tested some skype adn the stream already last night... I eman, it wasnt a GROUP chat, but would it make much of a difference? my computer is pretty bottom line these days so i think if mine can do it hopefully moire people should..... er, unless they have a lesser internet connection? but that would just be net lag instead of being a dumper.
