John in SF: Do you manage this website?

Matt1: Yes, I just stumbled on Rush’s site and was hooked finding others with a passion for CC

Rush has joined this room

Matt1: Rush is the founder and owner….I’ll help out here when needed.

Rush: TYSM. ..again!

John in SF: Rush, before you go, I have a comment …

John in SF: Rush, I can imagine CC replying to your comment from last week: β€œIf true labor of love, then truly is most valuable.”

Rush has left this room

Matt1: Sorry John….Rush has the flu

John in SF: Sorry to hear that.

Matt1: He was just checking to see if we got started Ok

John in SF: Hope he feels better soon.

Matt1: Yes….Tough time of year to get it πŸ™

John in SF: With you as host, of course!

John in SF: Yes …

Matt1: I was at a holiday party and wasn’t sure if I’d make it, lol

John in SF: Yes, it’s a time for getting together …

Matt1: Do you get his weekly email’s?

John in SF: I didn’t know he sends out emails.

Matt1: Yes, weekly reminders and info for the weekly chat’s. Next time you see him, ask to be put on the list

John in SF: Does it require registration?

Matt1: Rush had two extras for us to view tonight before the TV Chan tonight, so we should get started soon.

Matt1: No, you just need to give him your email and he’ll include you in on the weekly email

John in SF: I still need to pull up a second screen …

John in SF: Please remind me how to access starting screen for film.

Matt1: Ok….There are two extra’s, but I don’t think I can post more than one link here in the chat room. I can try, but I would suggest we start with the 15 min clip?

John in SF: I’m ok with bypassing the extra.

John in SF: Where is the starting screen for the 1st film?

Matt1: For tonights main feature(s)…..scroll above chatroom, to the link for “The Sweater” and “The Nobel Art of Murder”

Matt1: Ok, since it’s just the two of us, we can skip the extra’s

Matt1: More will probably come in at 8PM and we’ll start the two Chan’s (TV Series) at 8:15PM sharp

John in SF: I tried both Utube & other site, but each goes to a generic screen.

Matt1: I right click the link/name and open a new window and paste it there

Matt1: Both links worked for me

Matt1: brb

Matt1: Can either of you access the “sweater” from the link above the chatroom?

mda19083: Matt – I have the links from the email – no worries – it may be a blessing that you are not an administrator
