Pre-Chat Thoughts

I just received the e-mail update from QR that Loreena will having a video chat on the 17th. Unfortunately for me I will be away during that time but I wanted to take a moment and thank Loreena for doing this again. I look forward to seeing the results.

Hi

You will find more in General and the thread Did You Get The E-mail?
And/or
In Post Chat Thoughts & Comments, Another Chat Please!

This should help, hopefully...

P.S.
Hope to see you at the chat... Big Grin
Is this a video chat? Do you need webcam? I think I should be able to participate if you don't ('coz I don't have one), someone said it would be on at about midnight in europe which would make it about 10:00am in Eastern Australia.

Does the "eastern" part of Eastern Standard Time refer to the eastern part of North America?
Questions are made by text and the response will be verbal and visual.

The time would obviously depend on where you are in Europe, but right now the UK is four hours ahead (so 01:00 AM) and Central European time is five hours ahead of us (so 02:00 AM).

Eastern Daylight Time is observed on the East Coast of Canada and The United States in such cities as Toronto, New York, Miami...
Do you think she'll consider it? Roll Eyes I'm really worried that she will listen, but won't come to Tasmania...which is an island state...which would mean I'd miss her concert after all the hints I've dropped trying to get her to come here. That probably makes it sound like I'm not as dedicated a fan as most of the people here, but the cost of flying isn't small, and I'm not exactly rolling in money Frowner
Thank goodness, you have specified the exact time in Europe (in my case CET), as I thought New York etc was six hours back rather than five, so the chat was expected at 3:00 a.m. CET, when it would already come to an end. I would have been so sorry!
Thank you again, you save me.

Hi there,
I had posted a note about the March 17 chat on another page of the QR MessageBoard, but will repeat it here just in case folks didn't see that post...
I hope this helps, and thanks for understanding.
Cheers,
Stacey.

Hi everyone,
You may have noticed that not everyone in the QR Community was sent the brief Update about Loreena's chat on March 17th. News of the chat isn't posted on the QR website, either...
This is because unlike the chat last year, this new chat is sponsored by Amazon.com. It was Amazon.com who asked that Quinlan Road share news of the event with those living in the USA. Also, due to time differences (the chat is scheduled when it's the middle of the night in Europe) we didn't want to raise the hopes of those who would likely be unable to participate. Should you wish to take part all the same, here's the link to information about the chat:
http://www.quinlanroad.com/amazonchat/
Best regards,
Stacey

Hi Betty,
The email about the chat was only sent to people living in the United States, because it is sponsored by an American company, and because the chat happens in the middle of the night for people living in Europe. You can read the email here: http://www.quinlanroad.com/amazonchat/
To participate, all you must do is go to this link at 9:00 PM Eastern time / 02:00 AM Italian time (on Wednesday morning) and follow the instructions. I'm sorry, the instructions are only in English.

Here is a computer translation of my email - I hope this helps:

Ciao Betty,
L'email circa la chat è stato inviato solo a persone che vivono negli Stati Uniti, perché è sponsorizzato da una società americana, e poiché la chat accade nel mezzo della notte per le persone che vivono in Europa. È possibile leggere l'e-mail qui: http://www.quinlanroad.com/amazonchat/ Per partecipare, tutto quello che deve fare è andare a questo link a 9:00 PM Eastern Time / 02:00 AM ora italiana (il Mercoledì mattina) e seguire le istruzioni. Mi dispiace, le istruzioni sono solo in inglese.
Spero che questo aiuta.
Stacey
Betty, che fai, partecipi alla chat?
Io spero di non crollare prima, perché in questi giorni ho molte cose da fare e arrivo alle 10 distrutta...ci provo a stare sveglia. Comunque noi possiamo scrivere le domande appena iniziata la chat alle due di notte tra martedì e mercoledì e poi Loreena risponde in video chat in circa mezz'ora di tempo. Non è molto, ma certo a voce fa prima che a scrivere. A domani notte... Smiler Cool

Betty, what about the chat, will you attend it?
I hope not to fall asleep earlier, as I have so many things to do in these days that at 10 p.m. I'm played out...I'll try to stay 'tuned'.
However we can write our questions as soon as the chat begins at 2:00 a.m. between Tuesday and Wednesday (as Stacey explained; by the way good Italian! Wink) and then Loreena answers via a half an hour video chat. It's not a long time, but verbal answers are quicker than written ones. Till tomorrow night Cool...(here I would need a yawning smiley, just to quote AnxiousSmiler)

I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not, but its almost been half an hour now, and I haven't seen anything from LM. I went to the website, but there were no instructions like you said. I definitely went at the right time, but there was nothing there, and the chat window kept saying "error connecting to server..."

What went wrong? This is extremely not fair!Red Face

Ciao Betty,
io non capito dove dovevo scrivere la domanda. Purtroppo non credo nemmeno di averla spedita. Comunque delle risposte che ha dato ho capito abbastanza, si sentiva anche la voce di Mark in sottofondo. L'importante è che l'ho vista.

Hi Betty,
I didn't understand where I had to write my question!Frowner Anyway I got enough of Loreena's answers, and then Mark's voice was heard in the background Cool.The utmost, however, is that I saw her.

Jesse, but what time did you join the chat?
Don't misunderstand me, I'm asking you that as I got many times, one each effort of mine, the sentence 'error connecting to server' and even 'you are not in this chatroom' (thanks Frowner), so that at this point I think I wasn't able to send my question either. In the left window, however, there was Loreena who responded to messages and, even if I was 'out of chat', I could see her.

Question to QR: was Loreena at home?

Cheers
Hi there,
I think perhaps due to the fact that Canada and the US now Spring Forward a few weeks earlier, the time difference to calculate the hour of the chat may not have been what people were expecting.
Here's a helpful tool to use in the future, an online meeting planner: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html
9:00 PM in Toronto, Canada on March 17 =
2:00 AM in Rome, Italy on March 18 =
12:00 Noon in Melbourne, Australia on March 18
I'm sorry you missed it Jesse!
Best regards,
Stacey
