    Emerging Tech Social Hour: Rumii

    Wednesday, June 3rd, 6 pm 


    Join your friends from the San Diego and Southern California communities as we continue our exploration into alternate video conference options! We had a blast running around Online Town during our last adventure. Next, we'll venture into VR. Those of us who do not have VR headsets (which will probably be everyone) may join in via computer, for a less-immersive-yet-still-fun experience.


    Before June 3rd:

    Download the appropriate software for your device
    Create an account and customize your avatar.

    On June 3rd at 6 PM:

    Launch the program and join us using room code: rjdl1q
    (this room code may change, but it will be communicated on Connect if it does!)

    From what I understand, the audio is location-based, depending on your avatar's location in the room, so you may want to use a headset! Our actual faces will not be appearing... just avatars! No one knows how this experience will be... it's new to all. Isn't that great?

    Hope to see your cartoon face soon!

    Jamie

    I tried to download rumii for my Mac, and got an error message that says

     "rumii.app" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.  

    Furthermore, it says "This software needs to be updated.  Contact the developer for more information."

    Jamie, did you run into anything like Bill did when trying to access Rumii? I just emailed contact@dogheadsimulations.com to see if they had any insight, but also wanted to see if you maybe found a workaround you could share.

    Hi all, sorry for the late response! I was able to download Rumii to both my Mac and my PC. 

    Who is planning to join in tonight? Is a reschedule necessary?

    I'll be there! Bill and I are emailing, so hopefully can figure out how to get the Lees on as well.

    Hi Jaime, please tell me how you downloaded for Mac.  I got an error message, and I just tried it five minutes ago.  Did you download directly or go to the apple store?

    I'm back online!

    I downloaded it from the website, it arrived as a .dmg. Apple asks me if it is okay to open since it was downloaded from the internet. Then it opened a folder where I just dragged it to Applications.

    Did that.  When I went to open it, I got the error message.

    Hi Bill,

    When you go to open the app, click and hold the "Control" button on your keyboard. When the menu opens, click "Open". After that, you will get the same error, but this time with an option to open anyways. This is the manual override on Mac for applications that it cannot scan for viruses. Happens to me all the time! Hope it works!

    (Password reset request goes to Wordpress... no account found!)

    Jamie, I think I've run into the login issue before. Try logging into SLA.org first, then using the link there to go to Connect.

    And if Shelly's idea doesn't work, try clearing your browser cache. I have that problem with Safari and Connect.
