Would anyone be interested in joining a Slack group specifically for Geekzoners? 


In short, its like IRC, but with less anonymity and more gif support. https://slack.com/

What purpose would it serve over and above what's already available?

If you don't feel like manually inviting people, you can set up something like this -> https://github.com/outsideris/slack-invite-automation

Whats wrong with IRC? It appears to be good enough for Mr Robot.

 

I didn't even know you had a channel in the past. You could just make a channel on Undernet or Efnet, you don't even need to set up a server. Slack is OK, we use it at work, the app is terrible I just use Franz and it uses the web interface as a client.

Nothing wrong with IRC. We actually had a channel for years and epic meetups with hundreds of people online. Slowly though things got tired and people started moving to other things to do.

Yes, unless I make it an automated thing - which needs a bit of coding. Stay tuned.

 

 

 

 

I have nothing to do tonight if you want me to put something together. Just need API details...

We use Slack almost exclusively for inter company comms now and i have noticed maybe one or two crashes in about a year of heavy, daily, use.

Which app are you having problems with? Windows, Mac, iOS or Android?

Thanks for the offer. I will thinking of making a page on Geekzone itself - hence .asp code needed. I will do something tonight and see how it goes. Back soon.

I like these can-do attitudes. 👍
Can you write me a driver for widi on an Intel hd 3000? Just kidding, but not about the admire part.

Ok, code is done but I have a question before I release it.

 

I am coding so that only Geekzone users access the page. I am filling the email with Geekzone email address. Should I make this field read-only or people would like to be able to use other addresses?
