Re: open/closed meetings?

Has the web page with the meeting calendar on it been changed to reflect the change?

open/closed meetings?

The format is not clear on what open/closed meetings are. I only found out by READING our meeting calendar page that the zoom meetings are considered closed meetings and the rest are considered open. Is this actually still true? Anyway, the format does not explain whether the current meeting is open...

Improving on our literature creation software/data

There is a piece of software available that has been used to create documents for the last 30 years, which is again based on software which is about 40 years old. That software is still in use today and is trusted by many people. It's called LaTeX (I recently discovered it's announce La-Tech. Thing ...

Move whatsapp group to signal?

Recently we (Xander, Martha and Shmuly) made a signal group because we are facing some problems with WhatsApp. However, we were too early. Therefore a group conscience meeting is needed. Here's the list of things at issue with WhatsApp: WhatsApp guarantees group sizes of 256 to work properly. After ...

DRAFT Format for a potential new meeting

Hi, I'm proposing a radically different format for a new OOMG meeting. It contains a reading of the steps. It assumes zoom. It requests people to show their camera, and makes appropriate requests. There is a request to introduce in a certain way. Here's the format: Welcome to the <day> <time> meetin...

Re: forum decisions

I agree completely with you, Scott. I also agree with the grace time, lets make it say... 3 months? It would be wise to keep paying for that period, so no ads show up. I guess a global announcement would be appropriate. This announcement would be shown in each subforum. This makes sure that everybod...

Meeting to SPECIFICALLY talk about the solution

Recently I became aware of a situation which has, in all actuality, been going on for a while. This situation is, to me at least, deeply concerning. Even more concerning (to me): in the past I actually participated in this problem, however I think I have grown over it and this has allowed me some ad...

Agenda and minutes availability and accessibility

I'm going to be a bit of a pain, but this needs to be dealt with. For as long as I remember, the GSC agenda and minutes always became available at the last possible moment and are posted in a private forum (i.e. not visible to google or (more importantly) the casual visitor). This means that GSC rep...

request to advocate use of video in Zoom

In the meeting I chair few actually share their faces. Why should I keep chairing this meeting on a platform which is just a peace of shit regarding anything text and focuses on video, when nobody shares video (this includes enlarging text so I can actually read ( I'm <em><strong>visually impaired</...
