Hey everyone,

Not sure why it took me so long to think of this, but what if we had a socially distanced video chat / zoom shmup meet??

During this time I've been doing regular game meets with the local friends, and realize we could have a BIG one with people from all over sharing their fave PCBs and such :)

I can host if people are interested in that sort of thing!

Hey segasonicfan, long time man! I'm not sure what Dave K style means to be honest (LOL), but I think most folks just hang out in Twitch streams or discord now. Two streams I frequent, and are avid PCB players/collectors, are:
https://www.twitch.tv/djpsykom1
https://www.twitch.tv/gillaxian

Or were you thinking of something different?

Hey, thanks for the links!

Yeah, I was thinking of doing a meeting over Zoom, where we can all hang out and chat. Kind of like your living room in the old days. It's at least half the fun, and quite different from Twitch which is more one directional. However, you can do both at the same time for higher video quality!
Discord is another option for this, since they have high-quality video and audio chatting.

Anyway, if someone's interested in something like that let me know.

and "Dave K style" means only one thing....


... E P I C !!!
I'll never forget those awesome times at your place, lots of excellent shmups and pizza and soda. You'll always be a hero in my book for inviting all of us into your digs! Super thoughtful of you, and it was always a real mega (or 16 MEGA) highlight :)
