I cheated and used their countdown timer. :wink:


Will a recording be available? That’s 4am my time. :disappointed:


They appear to offer transcripts but I don’t see one for recordings.


“Your application is pending”. I’ve got a feeling it will be pending till the whole thing is done. I understand that this way only the most persistent will get to participate, but there got to be an easier way to do a chat. If only we had a dedicated web site for KiCad discussion where something like that could be implemented… wait…


I think you pressed the wrong button? I did too. You need to click on the “Join Hack Chat” speech bubble.


huh, somehow I had the impression that this would be like an audio interview with Wayne or something. wasn’t expecting to just see a big chat window


Yeah, the format is not very conducive to efficient communication. At the very least they could’ve done a moderated chat, so you wouldn’t have to parse through all that chatter


Same. And it was really hard to write answers. (Massive lag)

Thanks @pdp7 for alerting us about this event.


yeah, honestly I thought that was a complete mess. that chat system cannot handle that many people talking at once. Wayne was even missing questions :confused:

Moderated would have been muuuuuch better, @ArtG


Yeah, pretty chaotic. At least the pizza was good :slight_smile:


And i can’t even answer some of the questions on the original discussion thread. (Someone had a follow up question to my answer but i can’t answer him. There is no reply button only a report button.)

We are spoiled with this forum.


that interfarce is horrible. i wanted to ask some questions but i bailed out before the official “chat” began. could’nt cope with it no more. the transcript is ok-isch, but i got more info in the talk he did about the state at fosdem: https://youtu.be/SlxpHWB_vb8
