We'll be giving the https://meet.jit.si/ a try for a virtual meet...

Get yer equipment, beers, brews, snacks at the ready!

Note, this is all untested so... All good fun! Further details on the
maillist to follow.

One virtual meeting from the BCS that I'll mention is:

Business continuity planning | Digitally coping in times of crisis

There's some good comment in there but all oh so slow! Hopefully, for
those interested, my TLDR summary will be meaningfully faster :-)

And... Anything and everything else!

Join us soon:

7:30pm Thursday 26/03/2020

(Joining details to follow.)
