Adding peanuts to the shopping list. Gotta try boiled peanuts along the way, too.

    A mighty meal means you're developing a food baby and don't have space for much else the rest of the evening.

OOOH yes. This I understand.

I'm not as familiar with Zoom as Discord/Twitch/Youtube...

Of those three, I'd use Discord for voice chat, map, and screen viewing, but it doesn't support streaming from your camera. SOoOo, here's my take:

Discord lets can host your own private server, with each voice channel hosting 10 people watching a live stream. You can also create text channels to chat outside livestreams or place interactive games/links. Discord is what you're looking for in terms of a top-down, white-listed (or graylisted) approach. Creating and maintaining infrastructure of a Discord server is VERY straightforward. Another great benefit is the bots people have already made for Discord that could suit a variety of needs. For example, music bots are great for voice channel rooms where there are no live streams going, but people want to listen to music and chat in text channels (or have the music softly playing as others talk). It'd serve as a great place for the map you're looking for.

As for video chats, Zoom is where I'd put my money on, and Twitch for shows. Twitch does everything you'd want out of YT livestreaming, but better - it's what it was made for. Discord was made for internet socializing, featuring a damn good voice option.

TL;DR, Discord can work as a great nexus. A private server containing links for each show in chat/voice channels general voice/text hangout which can also serve as general chat/music/voice/screensharing hub.

As always, there could be options out there that are worth exploring. Facebook Live, Mixer, and others.

Florida, ladies and gentlemen:

Happy to share. :-)

    after which you add a whole lotta spices (garam masala, pepper, chili, kardemom, almonds) and a bunch of honey and Greek high fat yogurt.

Mmmmmm... are those peanuts in there too (just northeast of the rice mountain)?

    Which is how you say in Dutch that a meal is very... Powerful?

Similar to hearty? Thicc works, too, lol.

Roasted cauliflower's lowkey a phenomenal, very versatile side. My mother roasts them with turmeric as a snack. Cutting the heads the branches to make 'cauliflower rice' is a great mix-up for when I get tired of rice as a carb-base in cooking.

Lurking in chatski throughout the past week or so. I like the feature a bunch. Nice dark screen to idle in the monitor rather than a static feed/comment section.

The description at the top was nerfed hard with the past couple updates.

    Hubski Chat is beta, and does not respect markup.

Used to have an entendre as:

    Hubski Chat is very alpha, and does not respect markup.

1. Do you have or have you had the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?


2. Does someone you know have/had it?

Not yet. Until now it’s been only 3 degrees of separation (brother’s neighbor’s yadda yadda), though there have been a handful of cases in my town.

3. Do you know someone that has died from it?


4. Have you lost your job or been financially impacted by it?

I was job searching before all this, and the interviews I’ve had have stalled out since. Close friend of mine was supposed to snag an unpaid internship in a couple weeks and even they are getting told that may have to wait.

Looks like a groovy hat. Best have a good storage spot.

That post is a thread rabbit hole in disguise. Beware those who have responsibilities to attend to.

Batman: The Dark Knight intensifies. That tweet is blowing up.

Sweet tech, too. The mobile phone data providers’ site has more examples about Italy using Tectonix. Bummer, thought tectonix was a one-stop shop based on that tweet.
