Good morning folks,
I'm writing to let you know that AAVSO has an ongoing "Chat Room" daily at https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.aavso.org/#aavso
It's just a place to hang out, ask a question of live real people, or just to say hi.
I'm on an hour of two a few days a week. Several others are on virtually all day every day.
Maybe we'll see you there.
