    Hey love thread

    My birthday is coming up and it's been a while since I've seen many of my friends

    I'm thinking of trying to setup a zoom party or something but I don't know how?

    Also is it possible to output video from my screen to zoom? I could then maybe do jackbox games with my friends that way.

    where are you running jackbox? if it's on the PC then you should be able to share your screen and it will work fine. Also streaming jackbox on twitch works great, as the framerate will be higher, and then you run the meeting in zoom or google meetup or whatever. Thats our standard, stream the game on twitch, then all chat and do video in google.

    That sounds good actually

    I need to figure out who of my friends will have access to a computer and a phone though so they can play along.

    I basically never take photos of myself but the other day I walked through a field of cows and they all came running over and followed me and I had to take a pic of my posse

    God I forgot I put a photo of myself here. That was a shock to wake up to.

    I've played jackbox games over Discord with some friends, that was heaps of fun. Needed a phone AND a computer per person though, I believe.

    I’ve played Jackbox over zoom - one person shares their screen, you play on your phone as normal. But yeah you probably don’t want to be playing on the same device you’re zooming from.

    When we do it I use OBS to stream over Twitch. There's Twitch apps on most platforms so people can usually just play along on their own TV then we set phones / laptops up with a Google Meet for chatting

    You just have to make sure that wherever possible you go into the settings for each of the games and turn on the "extended timers" otherwise people with spotty connections don't always get a chance to play as their stream will be lagging

    It has been almost two years since the last time I was called upon to lift something too heavy for anyone else present to lift, and I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of potential social credit while I still have this largely unearned physical strength. If you're my Secret Satan this year, I request a number of plausible yet broadly inconvenient Donkey Kong barrels scattered throughout my public life.

    Problem is on twitch is that it never catches back up. I slowly get farther and farther behind, until I'm minutes behind. The only way for me to do it is for someone to share their screen in the chat app of choice.

    Wedding photos in 3 weeks, I appear to be losing weight well enough to feel good about myself when I immortalize my corporeal form in memorial of my nuptials which will take place in ??????s.

    Internet dating anyone right now means not only trying to handle the "what if they're an axe murderer" anxiety but also including fairly justifiable fears of not really knowing how covid-safe they are and folks, I'm not too into bringing a date('s virus) home to meet my parents after the first one

    True. Twitch is awful for lag and we've got one couple that plays on their Philips Smart TV that has to restart their TV every couple of rounds so they stay relatively in-sync

    The people that play via PCs connected to their TV have a better time

    Also, first post-breakup, post-covid date three weeks ago. Annnnd it was a winner. Several dates since then and looking forward to many, many more. (though it was a Bumble connection that also happened to be somebody I knew a little bit from high school and growing up, so some groundwork was already there. Not completely luck of the draw.)

    We had some friends inside the house for the first time since this thing started (post COVID test coming up negative for the people involved). That was balm for the soul.

    I've spent this week getting woken up by construction finishing up on our street, which involves them opening up with an asphalt saw at 7 am to open holes to finish connecting the new gas line to peoples' homes. Sucks, but I get it, has to be done.

    The unfortunate side effect is that my misophonia is in overdrive today and I'm going to murder the next person who mows their lawn (I get that it's unseasonably warm because of climate change guys but you need to stop mowing your grass now or it's going to die when we get first frost in a couple weeks).

    I think I'm finally going to try to setup a weekly video / voice chat hangout with my friends here soon

    Someone tell me the easiest way to do that though? Google chats or zoom or what?

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    zoom for video or discord for voice only seem like the most common options

    You could use Teams!

    Ahahaha I'm such a joker.

    Real answer: facetime works pretty good if it's a small number of people and everyone's got an Apple device.

    We've started window shopping places to move in together once my lease ends. The big bad in this whole endeavor, is that we work on opposite sides of Lake Washington. I work off downtown Seattle, covid essential style, she works for an east-side university that could possibly remain WfH all the way though 2021 depending on vaccines & political environments.

    If there's no sign of vaccine by March, I think that means we pick a place where I have the shorter commute, since I'll still be actually driving into work.

    House boat? Just park it right in the middle of the lake and have a couple small boats to get to your appropriate shore.

    My favorite thing about having a house is when it can spring a leak and sink

    no wait that's my least favorite thing

    Middle of the lake doubles as a busy airport, unfortunately

    Oops that’s Lake Union. The airport on Lake Washington is way up north end
