It was fun! I'm going to make everyone here at Instructables do it! That'll whip 'em into shape.
Or, because some of us are in different time-zones*, why not get people to PM your volunteer with questions, which then get answered in a big forum post?

*and because we get confused by chatrooms...
Overall, I think we're pretty good about answering questions posted on forums, for example. However, that was the longest I've been in a chat room yet, and it was quite rapid fire. I didn't have trouble following what was going on, but there was this sense of needing to type quickly so that people knew I was still answering a question. Even though the chat room might not yield the best and most useful answers or questions, it does provide a sense of intimacy that doesn't come across from an asynchronous threaded discussion, and that part was fun. So, I think we'll do it again in the future.

yes, i often forget that not everyone is used to the quick 'msn learned' type skills that us younguns have, thats what happens from having the internet in your teenage years. I agree, alot of people enjoyed the 'im actually talking with Eric live!' aspect.
Youngin's ? I'll have you know I was whipping out rapid fire answers on ChatPlanet, in the 1990's ! (of course, I was in my mid-forties then....)

Yes, indeed, but the point i make is about learning to type fast in your teenage years when the learning curve is at its optimum.
Aye, in my teenage years, there were no desktop computers, the fastest typists were using keypunch machines or manual typewriters. Once we switched to keyboards without that long keystroke, we were f-a-s-t ! LOL
I have since slowed a bit however.

Oh, I'm not saying "don't do it", just don't expect a lengthy, witty, or even coherent contribution from me when you do it next.

I'll just sit in the corner.

Drink!
Kiteman, I'll ask your questions next go 'round if you'll pm them to me. If you want.
