Skype practices

Post by ryandillon »

Hey everyone,

After this week's AP exams, seniors at DCC are out of school and we're always looking to play quiz bowl over Skype. If anyone wants to join us they'd be welcome. Just put down your Skype name and after this week we'll be on there on a regular basis if anyone would like to play.

I'll be home pretty often over the next few weeks, and I'm going to be doing not much more than writing tossups and studying for quizbowl (with the occasional school thrown in) between next Thursday and NASAT.

I volunteer my services as a Skype moderator, provided someone can email me questions/explain to me exactly how buzzing in works via Skype. I'm reasonably free on weekday afternoons and evenings through NASAT. Let me know if anyone's interested.

After this week my main focus will be studying for quizbowl, so I'd love to do this a few times.

Sounds good everyone. Yeah we're just winding down with APs so I'll shoot you guys a loose schedule on when we should be on through the upcoming five days or so.

I'll send out another message to everyone who gave me their Skype usernames, but we're going to be practicing on Monday at around 1 and possibly later that night as well.

We had an 8pm Eastern Time game last night which seemed to work out pretty well for a lot of people. I think we'll be on around that time a few times this week starting Wednesday. If you're on Skype around then and would like to play, send me a request and I will add you to the call. My Skype username is ryan.c.dillon

Just wondering, is this happening again? I'd be willing to play and am mostly free through NASAT.

Sure, really all that needs to happen is someone to start the call. Personally, I'm pretty stacked with work through the NSC so I might be out for this week.

This would be pretty cool; less lonely than one-line scrolling, and I have to prep for NASAT. I'm silence.in.the.studio

I wouldn't mind a game or two. Can't say I'll be too skillful or anything, but it'd be nice to participate in games against people I haven't played against and probably won't. I'm t3hb33f on skype.
