  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

In order to eat meat? No.
Quote
A virtual siyum does not allow the participant to eat meat. However it does serve another purpose: A siyum is not just a loophole to allow us to have our hamburgers. Rather, it serves to infuse simcha shel mitzvah (the joy of serving G-d) into these otherwise sad times. This joy is contagious, and hearing a siyum over the internet is surely a good way to tap into that joy--at least remotely. So while it does not allow you to eat meat, it certainly does change the atmosphere of this period. Instead of just looking backward at the destruction, we can also look forward to the rebuilding.
