Right, if my computer will play ball here's a heads up on what is (or 
isn't) happening with the meeting tomorrow. Wow, this computer is taking 
me back to my days desktop publishing on my un-accelerated Amiga with 
ProPage - even in wireframe mode I had to hold my finger down for ages 
and watch the redraws catch up with where I'd dragged things with the 
mouse. Typing is behaving similarly on this Ryzen 5 3600 with NVME SSD 
and 64G RAM!

Anyhoo, timing, login and platform as ever (and as below), but I may 
well be late (or possibly not there!). I've left this meeting as online 
as I will be up in too few hours (must get to bed!) to bring my boat 
ashore. I hope to join, and likely drop in and out from the sailing club 
on my phone, but can't quite guarantee exactly what my movements are. In 
person meetings may well resume once I've established contact with Broad 
Oak again (I may well pop in on my way home tomorrow). Watch this space 
for details - hybrid may be an option if I can get my head around it.

May see you tomorrow.

You know the drill by now.. we're on Jitsi and 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!

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.
