Hmmm, that's a thought. Yes, it can be done. Sometimes we're just talking about general life stuff but conversations like the one last night that got deep into knife making might be useful to post. I'll keep that in mind for the future. The future, by the way, starts tomorrow....the room will be open Tuesday 5pm Pacific for at least two hours... and Eli should be there if he can get his time machine working .....

Every single 'newbie' chatroom I've been in dealing with metalworking always has tons of folks with massive amounts of experience waiting with baited breath for the next newcomer to join in wanting to know how to do something.
For me it's because I learn more by teaching and explaining.

Yup, that's the whole point.....noobies get to talk to experienced people. That works to the benefit of all the participants ...

That is part of the other reason I was hoping to have the chat logs posted, I tend to pull in links to articles and resources depending on the topic at hand.

Things like time lapse graphics to show different types of grain growth in annealed steel during hardening etc. Those are some handy dandy things to come across when you're starting.

If you have the Paltalk software there is an option for saving all the text to a file. I'm not sure if that's available if you're working from my web page but you can always cut and paste. The real problem is where to put it so that it might be useful to someone later. Could just post it here, I suppose...

The chat room will be open this Sunday evening from 5 pm Pacific until at least 7 pm. The participation has been good enough that I plan on having the room open every Sunday night. I will also open it any other night if you request it. I'll make this thread a Sticky pretty soon so look for it at the top of the forum if you want to see the latest chat room news ...

One of these days my work/sleep schedule will match when the rooms open and I'll make it in. Glad to see people are showing up!

Friday and Saturday would also be nice to have the chat open. Some of us don't get out much.

During the experimenting phase we had the best turnout on Sunday which I why I've picked Sunday to be the day for the chat room to be open every week. But, as I said before, anyone who wants the chat room open at any other time can simply ask. I can open the room most any time ...

Hey, Asphaltray - I just noticed you are in Walla Walla. I was born in Walla Walla and live in Wauconda now. What's with all the W's? I don't know, just happened that way.


A reminder to all interested parties, the chat room will be open tonight from 5 pm Pacific time until at least 7 pm (depending on attendance and interest). Look at the first post in this thread if you need info on how to find the chat room. Hope to see you there....
