Hi Tim,

There is a web based tool found here:

This offers a number of time slots across three days, where a person can
mark which time(s) they would be available for an on-line meeting.

I choose Thu/Fri/Sat for 7 and 8 pm blocks.
I may be dropping Thur the 28th due to an "event" at my wife's nursing facility, if I can get down there, and I may be too tired out to be up to doing anything that night.
I have been mostly off the lists due to being away and then came back
I'm very sorry hear that - I have a sibling going through the same (or
similar) trials and it is very difficult I know.

After having 3 strokes myself and then having some of these mini "things" happening to me that caused massive headaches and loss of some short/medium term memory is much better than having the bigger ones that caused me to loose years and years of memory on many subjects, like computer programming, family history [names of relatives] but not any real loss from many other subjects or skills like driving, walking, cooking, reading.
As for the meeting. . . .
Need more info on it, not the date.  How are we going to "meet".
At present I still think IRC makes the most sense, for the most people.

I know from your earlier emails that this is a problem in your case -
Have been trying to think of how to help mitigate the problem.

First - expect a fairly active week on the email list, on my part as

Second - I'll try to have a good agenda on the wiki by Monday night

which WiKi page is this?
Third - Using IRC there will be a full log of all the comments kept,
this will be available in very short order afterwards.

I do need a good and easy Ubuntu IRC client and exact instructions how to set up the client for the "IRC channel" that we will be using. That was the trouble using it before, could not get it setup so I could use it on the channel that is being used.
I'm not sure what can be done much beyond that. If you have thoughts or
ideas please don't hesitate to put them forward.

I am getting back to where I was faster than the last time this happened

Best wishes for your continued rapid recovery,

Drew Jensen
I get these setbacks every so often and sometimes it takes a few days for my head to "clear" from the effects, while other times it can take a month or two.

The worse issues is when I have my communication issues. Sometimes my speech is so bad that it is hard for people to understand what I am trying to say with my mouth. Sometimes my hands will not work properly to write or type on a keyboard properly so I can communicate that way. It is really bad when both happen at the same time. Right now my vision is messed up so it is hard to focus on the screen or a book I am trying to read for the past few days.

For the IRC bit, I have to use Ubuntu since my DELL Vista laptop will not boot up outside Safe Mode with any networking options. Safe Mode plus networking will not boot. There is a blue screen that flashes too quickly to read that it tries to reboot. So I may have to see if I can repair [reinstall] the OS, if I can find the disks that DELL gave me. But that will not happen till my mind is back to where it needs to be for a few days/weeks.
