Got your jammies and junk food ready? The screening chat opens in one hour and kicks off in two (at 6pm Boston time) with Mountie on the Bounty. Comment here with your AIM nick to be invited!

EDIT: If you have your AIM set not to allow random (non-buddy) people to contact you, turn it off or you won't see your invite! Go to Connections --> Manage my connections, then click on the one that says AIM, then the Change button and go to the Privacy tab to change it.

(Based largely on [livejournal.com profile] sageness' awesome instructions from [livejournal.com profile] out_of_con_txt.)

The chat will start at 6pm sharp Boston time with Mountie on the Bounty. The chat room will open an hour beforehand so people can get settled in, so we'll start inviting people from 5pm Boston time.

We're using an AIM chatroom managed through Trillian, so you'll need a) an AIM screen name (sign up here) and b) Trillian (download here).

Miscellaneous stuff )

With so many people involved, we have to stick to the schedule like Ray to Fraser, so please have all your files ready or DVDs in the player beforehand. Five minutes before the hour, we'll all cue up the video and pause it at the same frame, then someone counts down and we all hit play at the same moment. Squee ensues! After the end of the first video, there's ten minutes or so free, and then we repeat the process with the second video. \o/

And don't worry - anyone who shows up late or whose computer crashes can ask for a timestamp and catch up.

And finally, unlike AIM itself, Trillian automatically saves chat logs, which is great for rereading the fun, but means it's a good idea to be careful how much personal information you give. (To view a chat history, either right-click someone's name in the contacts window and choose View Contact History, or go right to the text file, which lives in a subfolder in the Trillian folder.)

My AIM nick is theantichrisnz, and the others are thesageness ([livejournal.com profile] sageness), thecatthatwalked ([livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone), logophile13 ([livejournal.com profile] sansets), and jamethielbane ([livejournal.com profile] jamethiel_bane). At least one of us should be around at all times, so if you have a problem, get in touch with us or comment on the invitation post.

Oh, this is going to be so much fun. Like a con, but with more pyjamas! *twirls in barely coherent excitement*
