I know we have a reader page that helps with organization, but do people use other methods?
What I do is check the activity of the threads I've posted in, by going to "Your posts" from the top left menu (essentially search.php?search_id=egosearch ). Then once in a while I do check the reader page in case there are posts I missed or left for later and forgot about.
I know some people subscribe to threads and check their subscriptions, or receive emails whenever there are new posts.
I subscribe to threads and get emails when new posts are made.
The subscription list helps to remind me of things that may be languishing and need attention to get back on track.
I also have a sophisticated filing system for my projects, using manila folders and handwritten notes and lists on lined paper.

For reminders and organizational assistance, I rely on angry personal messages asking me what the heck I'm doing?
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

I'm afraid of angry PMs.
So I guess I rely partly on the potential threat of angry PMs.

Maybe a good theme for a Zoom meeting would be “Kevin reads his favorite angry PMs” :)

Maybe it's time for my tell-all memoir.

Listen up Y'all. Especially you Kevin! The next LibriVox ZOOM meeting will be Sunday night at 9 pm central. Sept 13, 2020. That is THIS COMING SUNDAY FOLKS. I am trying different times to see how it works. The suggestion of a standard, weekly time is good but we need to test this out some more. About 8 -10 people have joined the first two meetings and that is great but the time is till up for grabs. Nachos, finger sandwiches (tuna and gator salad), Popeye's Chicken (spicy), and white wine will be provided for snacks. The chocolate fountain has been cancelled. (thanks a lot Kevin) Sunday night, 9 pm central, be there or be square.

Phil Chenevert is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Topic: LibriVox Chit-Chat & Sharing Zoom Meeting
Time: Sep 13, 2020 09:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

With the invitation, the process is very simple. (For me at least.) I just click a button that says something about joining Phil's chat.

I had to download the Zoom program, I guess, but that was early this year and I have no memory of how that went. It must have been as easy as downloading any other common program, as I managed it without difficulty.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

As for the chocolate fountain, I'm sorry. I usually can sneak it out from the Holy Name Society storeroom, but Sunday's a big bingo night for them.

Yup. We’re still under daylight savings time, of course. 10 Eastern, 9 Central, 8 Mountain then 7 Pacific. ⏰

I'll try to make it on Sunday night. My Zoom youth group starts at 6:30, so I might not attend that this week. I'll figure out a way to be there, either for the whole time or only part of it :wink:

You know, we should call our Zoom meetings Youth Group, also. If we all agree, I promise not to discuss my sciatica. (Well... I promise not to talk about my rheumatism. How 'bout that?)

I actually have a serious suggestion to make during this upcoming Zoom meeting.

Hi all

Having missed the earlier meetings, I thought I should be able to get to this, but unfortunately the time does not work well for Europe. If I've calculated correctly, that's 3 am in the UK. :cry:

Would love to join another time.
