We picked daytime since the weather is going to be crap, and by crap, well, rainy and snow showery, with wind and cold. Doesn't that sound swell? Regardless, if you want to meet up, let me know at ohio at holytoledo dot com. Maybe we can set up a carpool for you all from the big city?

lambert, when can we start our virtual house parties, bro? Have you seen the questions people came up with? Would it be possible to create a repository so people can write their responses as we go, so we can share among ourselves and with Team Obama?

Maybe every day (evening) through 12/31?

If you can pick the questions, I can create a content type that captures those questions, yes. Then we can aggregate them and redistribute, yes.

Also, the wind is picking up and the temperature is dropping. Another storm is moving in and that usually means we lose power for at least two days. So if you don't hear from me, do not worry and don't wait.

Questions back to you:

1. Say 8pm EST? Or 7pm?

2. Pick the questions? You mean, we start with two or three from the ongoing list? Sure, I can do that.

3. As soon as we lock down a time, shall we spread the word?

4. Another functionality question---is it possible to have Chat running simultaneously? Might be able to move the usual snark and smut there, not that I have a problem with snark or smut. But as the person most responsible for irresponsible comments, I would be remiss if I didn't point out that Chat is my friend. (Given all the other crap you have to do, this is down the list---if it's easy and you have time, great, otherwise, no worries.)

Be safe. We're going to be spending the night in a basement. Too many darn trees around us here.
