What: Online CFMeetup 200th Episode, Special Event

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday July 21 will be a special event, the 200th Episode of the Online CFMeetup.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Join your host Charlie Arehart and fellow members of the Online CFMeetup as we celebrate the 200th episode. There will be no presentation, but instead Charlie will:

  • review what’s happened over the past 4 years (honoring various speakers for various achievements, and noting other highlights)
  • review some of what goes on behind the scenes for each meeting
  • identify some changes coming for the group
  • offer the semi-annual giveaway to a randomly chosen attendee
  • and perhaps have some other special topics

Here’s to another 200 episodes!


DURATION: Approx. 1 hour

What time is that for you? The following link shows [ what the time would be for you ]. Here’s [ another option ] that shows the time as US ET, and lets you choose your city from the list offered to see what time that is in your own timezone.


In addition to the streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post downloadable recordings (FLV, MP3, MP4, and WMV) usually within a few days after the meeting, also offered as a link from the recordings page.

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE “LOGIN AS GUEST” option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’s no need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,600 members, no worries. 🙂

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
