You know the drill by now.. we're on Jitsi (noting the subtle update of 
the password from last year, although there is now a lobby so you should 
be spotted and let in if you forget it) the next online PLUG meet is on 
Saturday. See you there or, well, erm, not I guess - it is purely 
voluntary, but we still don't bite and we have no plans to.

The meet will be slightly later than our in person meets (remember 
them?) at 2pm to give everyone enough time to have lunch - virtual 
sandwiches aren't as filling!

I'm still on Openreach, hopefully third install date will be the charm 
(although technically you could argue that it is the fourth as the 
offered one and by the time I'd managed to let them know it was OK it 
was gone).

As an aside, if anyone has an interest in old Linux magazines and would 
like some (and can collect from near Portsmouth) I have most of the 
issues of Linux Journal from 1995 to 2002 that need to go to make space. 
There's a good chance I'll have Linux Format, Linux Magazine and Linux 
User / Linux User & Developer issues in the not too distant future too.

To join head to:


I'm not sure whether Jitsi has issues with random people joining, but 
just in case I will set a password of 'sat21'. If for some reason the 
URL above has been grabbed I will update via the list and website (you
don't seem to be able to reserve them).

I use Firefox, but I have heard that some have had issues and recommend 
Chrome or Chromium. There is also an app that you will be asked to 
download if you are using Android or Apple (it is also available through 

If anyone wants to join by phone I can email a code when the meeting 
starts (I don't think it gets created until then with Jitsi), but I have 
no idea where you stand on call costs. It came up at the IWPCUG / IOWLUG 
meet and I investigated.

See and/or hear you there - so to speak!

Keep safe.
