Tech Circle regular meeting time

We still need to decide on a regular meeting time for the tech circle.

I propose Wednesdays at 14:00 CEST



OK, I am gonna be able to make it this week but can’t commit to the tech circle proper due to $reasons. Can do 1 hr max. Let’s get it into the discourse calendar thingy unless there are disagreements…

Great. I’ve added the event to this thread.

Sorry, I have been struggling with the schedule. Would it be possible to start this earlier? I am asking only if theres no one attending from Americas. If that’s the case, the original schedule is fine :smile:

Is it possible to start at 14:00 CEST instead? (1 hour earlier?, again, if there’s no one attending from the American timezones)

Would be fine for me. What about @decentral1se?


Fine yep, that can work :+1:

ok! changed it to 14:00 CEST @Yasuaki

I have created this meeting as a weekly recurring on our new CalDAV that you can all use with 2-way sync

There is no location yet, as idk where you guys are meeting. Please add the location. Also the top still says 15:00 Berlin so I am keeping the event 15:00 CEST, not sure what you guys decided. You call should be able to change the calendar entry though.

Also are you guys able to accept the meeting?

@hng @decentral1se, if you would like, we can start from 13:00CEST or something to investigate @caseyg 's Safari browser issue

I can reliably replicate the issue using my IPhone.

The interesting thing is my own BBB home server doesn’t seem to have this problem. Maybe I should also try ColloCall?

For transparency, I added @Yasuaki and @hng accounts on and gave them root access via sudo. I did this manually and not with the existing Ansible based method from webarchs as I am not familiar with it.

Hi folks, I was going to attend the meeting but got there later, I got the wrong timezone. Anyway, seems like no one was around. I was going to announce that we’re doing the move to downgrade the server hardware, it should be a short downtime (30min). We’re stuck with our vacation schedule as well, our hardware folks are off starting this Friday.

Time for today and future meetings is 15:00 CEST, as there where some confusions last time and it is the time set here and in the calendar.
