OK Heres Somethin cool to try if you are computer savy and not Shy.
A friend of mine has a Teamspeak server( http://www.teamspeak.com/
Teamspeak is like Skype. Its a free verbal communication system that you can use 24x7 365 days. With a simple headset/microphone combo (20/25 bucks) you can talk to lots of people.
You need to download TS3 client. Walk thru the setup. After Setup open teamspeak, by clicking the Teamspeak client ICON on your desktop.(If you dont see an ICON for TS3,click start, go to programs, find and Open teamspeak there.) You Have NOW opened teamspeak. A window may pop up that says "Search for Servers" or "Server list window", You need to CLOSE that window. In the Upper left hand corner of the Teamspeak window ,you will see "CONNECTIONS". Click "Connections" Then enter the following ip into the server address. The "IP" is ( 126.96.36.199:9987 ). Plus add your nickname.I suggest the name you use in motortopia. NO Password to get in to this server
:9987 represents the port # ..........just type the "IP" like you see it above in ( ).
When you log into the Server, you will be able to move to any Motorhead Channel you like. If you want to go to the Pontiac Channel just put your mouse on the room that says Pontiac and Double Left click ,And your in that room. NOW...when you log into the Server you will see a few different rooms you can click, and join. At the bottom of all the rooms, i have Created a Motortopia Channel,with Sub channels below .The Sub Channels are specific channels. 1 For Pontiac,1 for Ford,1 for Chevy, 1 for Chrysler,Import, truck ect.... I created a channel Called : " East Bound and Down" for all the bandit Heads out there.
Just last night POWERCAT4000 and another friend Steveo3364 logged on we had a blast. I had a ? about the motortopia site (as im NEW) and they were able to walk me thru my questions real quick,as we were all talking to eachother, and on our computers at the same time. He would say "See this? Click there" and i would say " oh COOL i see",,,,,<<<<if you get the picture i am painting here. So its very helpfull and we had a Good time.
So if your not SHY and Computer Savy......Get teamspeak 3 downloaded and Hop on that Motortopia channel , and start talkn to eachother. Its a Blast you learn alot, and well, it could be a huge party. I think this server will hold 300 people.. not sure. But lets test the bounds and load the place up and Talk to the people you have been typing to for years, FOR FREE.
This is not an Advertisement for ANYBODY , ANYWHERE. just somethin cool a friend of mine let me do,and i wanted to pass this along to the community.Its a free download at Teamspeak.com (get teamspeak3, TS3).it cost nothing but a headset microphone combo,something many of us already have. It could be a ton of fun and would make cruising the Mortorpia Website ,LIVE.
IF you have a Car Club, and you want to have Club meetings? . This would be a good way to get all your club members together,that may be scattered around the Country. A Specific Channel Can be Created with your Club Name.So all who enter the server, will see their club name and know where to go. And just like that you have a meeting. Its simply a great way to communicate for free...24x7,365.
Teamspeak for any1 who wants to use it, is now LIVE.
p.s... If NO 1 is on the server ,dont be SHY, just hop in a room and make it yours.Tell your friends to join you, and have fun.
