There hasn't been a regular night for Mudcat get-togethers on Paltalk, at least for a good long time--what, a year or so?

Generally if someone is going to open a room they will announce it in an appropriately named thread, telling what time they will open the room and what the room name is. Of course the announcement needs to be far enough in advance so that people know it's going to happen. This is particularly important, given the current instability of Mudcat service. I should think the announcement would be best given 24 hours ahead.

Generally we have not had a locked room where a password is needed.

At one time we had a pretty regular room every Thursday night, as I recall about starting 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. If there were enough interest I suppose we could do that again. I for one would make what efforts I could to attend such a regularly scheduled room.

i am no longer able to get the paltalk connection.
as i recall anyone can start a room, and to do so
you need a code.
Back when i had a connection I hosted the
Mudcat Live acoustic jam
on Thursday nights for many many weeks...

the best deal is to go to the music rooms
and usually the rooms with "live" in their
names are the best ones.

quite a few mudcats would join me there and
I miss our sessions!! Sometimes they would
continue for 6-8-10 hours!! and people from
all time zones would come and go as their
area's time allowed. I usually started at
6 on the west coast so UK folks could come
in at the end of their day. Often when we
were still going after midnight pacific
time, the Europeans would be starting their
day and join in again!!

I installed (or rather it installed itself
if i recall) service pack 2 and since then
the sound has been poor quality--unbearable.
i need to figure out how to get on again..
until then, I hope someone might get a room
going....just please make up a new name and
do not use the name i used....
Toledo Frank showed me how to make a room
and Uncle Dave O was always prompt to jump
in and join!! Reggie NoBro and many other
mud cat folks came by, also...including Max!

at the time the Paltalk (www.paltalk.com)
program was not compatible with Mac computers,
I am not sure if that is still the case..

any way if you do find or make a room, let us
know...it is a great way to share music!! Laurel

Laurel:

A couple of thoughts on your sound quality on Paltalk, and what you MIGHT do about it.

Of course you might, on Paltalk, go to one of the Help Forums. They have very knowledgeable people manning them. They might be of help.

The other thing is pinging. If you click on START, and then RUN, you'll get what I'll call a comman slot. Type the following:

ping -t 63.240.0.174   And then click OK.   This will give you a window which will run the PING program for the connection with Paltalk. Minimize it. The "ping etc" stays there in the RUN window, so that another time it will just be a matter of running it. This goes some way toward improving Paltalk sound. Whether enough to help your situation, I don't know. I do this every time I'm on Paltalk, for what it's worth.

I'll be out of town tonight, so I can't open a room, or attend one if there's one open. Well, possibly I might get there about 10 p.m. Eastern Daylight, but I can't even be sure of that.

I liked the every-Thursday-night routine we used to have. I'll have to see about next week. Of course I'll be looking for any posts about rooms open between now and then.

Turns out I'll not be going out of town tonight after all, so I'll sign on to Paltalk at about 8:00 Eastern Daylight. If I don't find a recognizable Mudcat room in progress, I'll start one. If so, I'll use "Mudcat Live Room". (without the quotation marks). No password.

Dave O, that would be great. After quite a long absence I find I occasionally have time to visit Paltalk these days, but although the folks in the live rooms are friendly and there's some very good music, I have to confess that sometimes the mindlessness of the text chat in some of those rooms depresses me. It would be nice to actually discuss MUSIC now and again, or to have an indication that folks are actually listening to the songs being sung instead of chattering about how many beers they've had, etc. Boy, I sound like a curmudgeon, don't I?! See you around 8:00.
Margaret

This was at about 8:05 Eastern Daylight, but lo and behold, Mudcat was down. I thought I'd keep it for now, just to show that I mean what I said above.

I said (or tried to say)

We're up and running Margaret and I are entertaining each other, and we are breatlessly waiting for YOU to join us!

I kept the room open until about 9:45 Eastern Daylight.

As I mentioned above, MargaretV2 spent some time with me, and we had a good time singing back and forth.

After, I had one other "customer", whose Paltalk handle was something like "desTENknee", as I recall, who only stayed long enough for me to sing one song. After he/she left, no others dropped in.

I hope we can have a more active room next Thursday, or such other day that someone wants to open a room.

See(hear) ya 'round!

Thanks again for opening the room, Dave. It was a pleasure swapping songs. Hope to see some others next week, too! Margaret

OK Dave, I will look forward to it on Thursday evenings. I had better find that microphone I have not seen since I got the new computer. Thank you for leading this.

A new computer, Susan? Check to see whether there's a mike built into the monitor. They often are, these days.   Just a little hole in the face of the monitor.
