  The Chatter Box : Blathering On

Thank you...! by Webmaster on 19 February 2003 10:25pm
Hi everyone,

Only a quick one - as we're totally exhausted by the chat session!

A huge thank you to everyone who was there - and also to those of you who tried to be but couldn't. We knew that Michael was popular, but I'm afraid our servers didn't know he was *that* popular! It seems that there were just too many people with too many questions, and the hyperactivity blocked the pipe!

We're really sorry for those of you who weren't able to chat with Michael - and for everyone who encountered difficulties. We'll look into making chat sessions easier for everyone, and try another in the very near future.

The only thing that you guys could do to make the chat sessions easier for Michael (and therefore more enjoyable for everyone) is to make sure you keep public messages to a minimum. If you manage to post your questions and comments to either Passepartout or other users (by clicking on the appropriate name), Michael will be able to answer more questions and interact with more of you...

Anyway, thanks again for all of your patience and effort - it was total chaos, but we'll be sure that the next session is smoother, better and more accessible for everyone...

Cheers - look forward to seeing you next time,

Thanks for the chat although it was so chaotic and evrything! It's such a great thing that Michael is willing to do this, answer our questions...

Thank you for the opportunity to ask Michael questions and get to interact with him! It made my day! I hope everything gets figured out so that more people will have the opportunity to chat with Michael. I still can't believe it! I thought it went rather smoothly there for a while, very good for a first attempt! Keep up the good work.

Thanks Webmaster and Michael for the opportunity to chat.

Even though it was [email protected]#$y frustrating trying to get on, I do fully appreciate that it was the numbers that slowed things up. No surprise here that there were thousands queueing!! You're worth it Michael! :-}]

Comiserations to those fellow Palinites who couldn't get on. BIG HUG @@@ from here. :-{

See you at the next one.. :-}

Thanks again..... :-}}

Got to go and sort out domestics! Feeling very guilty as I really shouted at the kids this morning whilst trying to join the 'chat'............

Bad Mum! Bad Mum! :-{

Thanks again a second time

Oh it was a hoot! thanks Michael and Webmaster!!
Looking forward to the next one.
Well, that was fun and we all had a jolly good laugh... :)

Thanks again,

Actually, I was surprised that public messages were included - I`d expected something more along the lines of a Q & A session only.
Very good of Michael to share his time with us, and thank you for answering my question!
p.s. Has anybody taken the servers outside and shot them ...
Re: Thank you...! by monsg on 20 February 2003 12:26am
Webmaster, would you consider having a video chat with Michael someday, it would be great to see him answer the questions, I know it will have to be more organised, but I think all Palinites would really contribute to make it work
