  1. Soooo… when did the hangout start exactly? I regularly checked G+ before and around 10:30pm (that’s in my time-zone: GMT+1) but nothing appeared whatsoever. I have only ever used google hangouts once (a long time ago) so I can’t remember if there is something special to do to be able to access it aside from the “encircling”, which I have done. Anything else I can do to make sure I don’t miss the next meeting?

  2. Hi maria! I’m sorry to hear that… The time does seem right. If you have the EBJClub page in your circles, you should have received an invitation to the hangout, or so I think… Google+ can be confusing at times, so I’m not sure exactly what might have happened 😦 We would have loved to have you join us.

    For next week, let’s make sure this doesn’t happen again. I’ll be online a bit early, and we can be in contact as it goes to make sure it works. In any case, make sure to be in touch with me either via twitter or the IRC chat. Also, feel free to add me to google chat if you use that (rafa.maia@gmail.com).

    A couple of people also had problems connecting, I think, because Theresa kept logging in and out, and Nicholas disappeared midway through the hangout… so I think there’s a couple things we still need to figure out!

  3. Hey, sorry I was having problems with my connection. I don’t think it was a problem with the platform though, so I hope it’ll be fine next time.

  4. Enjoyed the discussion this week! I realized afterwards I made a minor (but embarrassing) goof: Drosophila melanogaster was described by Johann Meigen in 1830, not Linnaeus. Sorry about that!
