When is the consumder Charlie Chat ?
Consumer Charlie Chat is Monday.
at 9PM EST. And dont forget DBSTalk with have the Charlie Chat Chat on Monday afternoon and evening, at http://chat.dbstalk.com. We will be using a new chat s/w so WebTV users can join us as well.
Monday - July 8th i guess - to be precise...
and Haywood - thanks a lot for that little info on next Retailers chat...
That is what i wanted all along some thread with next chats info updated from time to time..
Moderator, Administrator - still think special thread - Stick up maybe - called something like "Dates for the next upcoming
Chat(s)" would be nice..
So anyhow here what we know now i guess:
Next Charlie's Chat - July 8, Monday, 9 PM EST
Next Retailers Chat - July 12, Friday, Noon EST
Next Tech Chat - Coming sometime in early Fall....???
We usually do sticky threads about a week before each chat. I will, however, post something on the home page about future dates for chats.
The retialer chats are not available for home users, the only ones who can see the retailer chats are delaers or friends of dealers.
(I have a dealer friend who occationally remembers to tape the retailer chat for me)
However, with that being said...We do have a wide membership of Dish Network retailers here at DBStalk.COM. I consider these retailers unique, because DBS is not all about making a buck (although its a big part of it) they want to learn the most about the industry like the rest of us. I consider many of the dealers here on DBStalk.COM some of the best local Dish Network dealers in the United States, and we are happy to have them here!
I am one retailer that got started as doing this as a hobby and still do this as a hobby and I try to give my customers good service as well and enjoy learning more about this wonderful hobby, its not just about watching tv, but the technology behind it as well.
How many people usually join the live chat you have such as the one you are gonna have on the 8th during the afternoon and evening on chat.dbstalk.com ? I wish there was a way I could have one to help people out with their problems and for discussion live on a regular basis during certain hours each day. Thats why it is important to get as many members as possible bc there has to be so many in order to get enough interest in live chat, am I right?
well put Scott
Can you please provide the exact link to the Home Page or it's sublink (another words the exact link to where you ll be posting that "something" about future chats...
So we can find it...
It was decided a while ago that the chat room should only be open during special events:
But, with that said, the chat room is actually open all the time. We just don't advertise the link except before and during the events. You are welcome to use the chat room whenever you please. If you would like to host a live chat from time to time to help people out, just let the admins know first and then advertise. That's all there is to it!
I'm a retailer because I'm highly interested in politics. The cable and satellite industries espcially cable is highly political, as well as broadband and telecom. I always tell people that broadband internet access isn't a technical problem, it's a political problem. As for cable and satellite, I got pissed off big time when Time Warner Cable blackmailed my Detroit suburb and 3 others over a mistake that they made. The fact that they were able to pass on the costs of their mistake and politicians who preach accountability and responsibility as the core principles that they live by is completely hypocritical.
I've created a simple web page with the dates for upcoming chats. Just use the links on the home page. http://www.dbstalk.com
so it the exact sublink then is:
Thanx a lot - it looks cool - nice simple format! (black and white, with nice Red
i talked so much about those chats..but wasn't home (was getting some lumber with my friend) - had to record it..
watched somewhat already..and will watch the rest lately
and missed Our Live Charlie's chat Chat again on irc
Now that Retailer's chat gone by, can someone please let us know if there were any non-confidencial information passed out during retailer Chat?
Such as - any new stations/locals are coming any time soon?
or some other simular information?
any new Technical information?
now that this Retailer Chat is over - When is the next Retailer Chat?
and for the dealers who missed this Retailer Chat, when are the rerun dates of IT?
To Jacob, of course the problem with the chat room on here is it's impossibly slow to use on a modem (I tried it once). They used to use a far better chat (that could also be used by people with older computers and us modem users, as well as WebTV) using IRC, but they dropped it without explaination. They used it once, and that was fun. Of course, I think it's a conspiracy designed to keep me (a modem user, on a very slow connection, who is almost always downloading stuff in the background further reducing my bandwidth to well under a kilobyte a sec available at times).
Yup mark thats it.
Our new chat is very fast over a modem, infact we had a few WebTV people in the last chat.
Next Retailer Chat, August 1st, Noon Eastern.
I have a modem myself and it seemed to have a delay in messages as in it would send three or four messages at once but you had to wait for them.
Isnt there a chat application that uses something like yahoo chat that is instantaneous? Why not have a voice chat with the text chat? Why not just open up a yahoo chat room just for that and have it unlisted in the chat area so we can chat in there with voice and all?
