ting67, Sunday, 2nd of July 2006, 18:00 UTC (20:00 CEST)[edit]

See ting-wiki for more about tings.


We are meeting half an hour before a ting on irc, server freenode, channel #onebigsoup.


We use Gobby as a collaborative editor. Use v0.3.x only please - older (and newer) versions are incompatile and will likely ruin the ting.

TheSheep provides a new gobby 0.3.x standalone server. Adress is c141-46.icpnet.pl port 6522 (default). We use that one for tings now. The collab-editor-server used before, kathigraben.mine.nu is being prepared for the new gobby 0.4.x and for now is experimental. Check irc.freenode #onebigsoup when there are problems to log in.


We use teamspeak for VoIP. You find the teamspeak login data on the gobby page ting67_talk or ask in irc.freenode #onebigsoup. teamspeak port is 8767 (default). Use quick connect to enter the server adress and join in. Configure your team speak to push-to-talk, please.

Joining the ting using gobby only is surely welcome.

some recommendations for ting[edit]

Please save the ting every few minutes on your hard-disk. In case gobby crashes (it does so sometimes) or in case somebody deletes all text we likely have a version to retrieve the ting without loosing too much of it. So save.

In case gobby crashes you have to relog in using a different name a n d a different color. You can not relog in using your former name o r color.

  • We start each contribution on tings with a sign: - this is because the colors get lost when exporting the ting to a wiki-page and not signing you can't tell anymore who wrote what on the wiki-page.
  • Export is some hours (or the next morning) after a ting is over. Remove what you do not want to be globally public before leaving a ting.
  • A ting might take 20 minutes or many hours until deep at night - in Europe at least ;).
  • Tings are set up for 18:00 UTC, and - like all good jam-session - sometimes don't get started but some hours later. So stay loged.

Also open the tingn_document page, please. It is for life-summarizing the ting. Copy results or precious passages over to it. Ting_talk might get pretty long and chaotic after some busy ting-hours. It's nice to have the contents already condensed when copying over the ting to ting-wiki. We actually copy the document on the article page and the talk on the discussion page.

The chat in the chat-window (below, in gobby) is translucent and will not be copied. It should be directly connected to a real irc channel (or peekko), freenode #ting for example, but it is not yet. Hack that, please.
