Please PM your phone # to me.
I'll be adding it to a WhatsApp group-chat so that everyone going can easily and privately communicate with each other.
WhatsApp is encrypted and can only be viewed by those who have been invited into the chat.
The App is compatible with Android, iPhone, Windows phones and computers.
It lets you turn on (or off) notifications.
I tend to turn off notifications because it can get noisy sometimes.

You can share pictures, text your location, ask where the next party is, etc.
And even use a custom screen name, like here on labusas.

Install WhatsApp from here:

You don't have to use WhatsApp.
But it would be a good idea to have it.
As mentioned, you can disable notifications.

It's a good way to be in touch with everyone on the ground at a moments notice. Someone texts in asking for help or directions, then you can help.
Or vice-versa. You've fallen down and can't get up. Text the group.
Sexting will have to be permitted or TurboBlow won't want to participate.

I get why some of you may only want to talk to your personal buddies but this is a reunion. Not an anti-social event.

Got it, seems harmless so far. Looks like the others in the group can't see each others' numbers. If all my shit goes missing I'll just delete it (do I have to type 'uninstall' here in the 21st century?).

Except for signing up, I didn't do shit with settings. Only notification I get when someone posts is text on the lock screen when someone leaves a message, no beeps, bongs, or voice alerts. I do have 2 what's app groups, one from my fone contacts, one for bikeless fuks.

That will get tiring real quick after a group gets chatty.
I disabled notifications on all my WhatsApp groups.
I'll probably re-enable them for this group on the weekend of the reunion though.

Just send a PM, preferably with an updated email address so we can fix that for you if you like.
And you shall receive an reply PM with an invite link to the group chat.

Shit, someone had to go and read the damned terms of service...

...I was just running on hope that it was okay.

Good thing I don't run anything beyond calls, text service and a couple of UPC type scanner apps.

I don't want to bog this thread down, but think about what these permission allow... see my comments in red below:
  • retrieve running apps Allowing them to see everything you run on your phone.
  • add or remove accounts Add their own accounts. Masquerade as you on your own device.
  • read your own contact card Validate the data you've given them against what you've stored in the privacy of your own device.
  • read your contacts Collect all your friends numbers, addresses, etc. This is why I typically don't give my information to people who don't understand app permissions.
  • modify your contacts Modify? Wow. Arbitrarily change your contacts information? Delete items?
  • approximate location (network-based) Might be able to disable Location on your phone and this would fail. The app would likely just re-enable it based on its abilities.
  • precise location (GPS and network-based) Precise? Why would that even be necessary?
  • read SMS messages Big brother much?
  • send SMS messages Another masquerade vector.
  • read the contents of your USB storage Free access to anything on your internal or external SD card.
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage And change or delete data. "Gee, I thought that naked picture of my wife was here somewhere. On, here it is on PornTube."
  • record audio How did this app know I was going to MotoGP? Surely it isn't just listening in on my conversations.
The rest of these are just obviously absurd! No app should need these kinds of permissions!
  • create accounts and set passwords
  • pair with Bluetooth devices
  • send sticky broadcast
  • full network access
  • control Near Field Communication
  • use accounts on the device
  • install shortcuts
  • uninstall shortcuts
  • read Google service configuration
End of rant.

A logical step in "helping" you with targeted advertising from businesses you visit- or even just near businesses you patronize.

For openers. Not that Google and Apple aren't already gleaning and exploiting that information from your whereabouts, whether you have specifically permitted it or not. Be sure to give Zuckerberg unfettered access to your location and Contacts too, while you're feeling generous :BusaVeloce:

Fuck that.

So basically, if you're already on Facebook then they've got all that info anyway. :lol:

At least it's the devil we know.
Don't have to worry about some north korean code writer using an app to steal our money and secrets.

This is a reunion thread though.
So i'm not gonna debate it all here.

The WhatsApp thing worked out real well for last years MotoGP and the board members. It got real active on Friday/Saturday and Sunday of the race.
But there will definitely be a weekend thread on the board.
The FB thread is a good idea too. :up:

I'm hoping everyone who comes had a good time.
Small contingents of labusas have been doing this every year.
Maybe this will be the start of something bigger on an annual basis.
Until Laguna Seca or Indy get their GP's back.

sailUSVI sailUSVI I just noticed UFC 236 is on this Saturday weekend.
Maybe we should re-schedule Saturday night events to be able to partake in this UFC event as well?
Or do you think anyone other than you and I would even care?

Adesanya is the guy who just beat "The Spider" Anderson Silva a few weeks ago. Kinda. It was a shit show but still fun to watch.

Nobody wanted to step up and pay for a lab bus.
So.... I suspect people will be here, there, and everywhere.

I don't claim to be a good organizer.
Matter of fuck, I'm turrible.
It will work out as it does.

And if everyone has a good time, mebbe someone will step up for next year and organize the stuff better.

I'm a hit'n'run energy kinda guy.
Talking to the same person for more than two minutes really messes with my psych. I have to move around. Go somewhere else. Talk to another person.
IDK why. It's just how I am?!

So that's how I tend to organize.
Clusterfuck. That's my winning game plan. :up:
