Here is a link to use for future Google Herfs. Thinking this link should be available at anytime to hop on without having to set up a link each time.

>>>> https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/g7msewchbgkjnnbt6x2kjljyjea

Anyone that tries to hop on please leave feedback if you have any issues in this thread

Great idea Kent. I guess we just post up in this thread when we are on. Only thing is after it gets off the homepage we might not be able to find it.

I had no issues with it on my home PC and phone. Also if some of us added the link into the area where we have our quotes and what not I think its called a Signature section here the link will show up when that person post on the site as well as here and the link can be on every page that way. See where it says Herf link on my post for example.

My thoughts would be to have the admins freeze this thread and then Geeks could just post up if they plan on being on in another thread instead of this one. Just direct everyone to this link instead of cluttering up this thread.
Otherwise no need to post up at all, just hop on and see if there is anyone else on.
Any more thoughts?

X2 just bookmark the link and then post a new thread when someone is hopping on. Alternatively, update your Circles on hangouts and send invites/notifications to others when you enter the herf.

Thanks for setting this up, Kent!

Here is a note about bookmarking the Hangout URL from Google

Mark Chang originally shared:

Bookmark your Hangouts video calls

Whether it’s the weekly chat from your dorm room with your parents or that group video call with your fantasy football league, Hangouts is a great way to keep in touch with your friends and family. With today's update, it's easier and faster to get into a Hangouts video call with your favorites.

You can already share a link to a live video call from your browser to invite more people to join. Starting today you can bookmark the URL for any video call and come back to it again and again. Save it to your desktop, bookmark it in your browser, email it, attach it to your calendar -- stash it anywhere you like! Then, when you open a saved Hangouts link, you’ll be immediately connected to anyone else that opened that same link. Getting the gang back together again has never been easier.

Makes perfect sense. Easy to find, yet not in the way either.

I still have to finish (been on hold for a few months) my man garage to join in on a (virtual) Herf. I mean, I'm not going to jump in, have to cope with all of you AND not smoke a cigar There has to be something in it for me right?

The ventilation I'll put in there will make it possible to smoke inside while browsing a computer or working on one of many projects, I just can't wait.

The google herfs happen just about every night, with Thursday being a very popular one. I believe it can host 9-10 geeks at a time. You might ask Stephen about the geek limit!

I think they had to change the link this week because the other one expired or something.

Someone usually posts nightly about starting up the herf, if you join in about 8pm est most nights you should find someone.

I believe the limit is 10.

Hey guys, this thread was just to keep the permanent link on the front page of the events forum page, not general conversations about the herfs.
