OK, I can't see my previous email on the lists or in my sent, so either I've imagined sending it or it is stuck on another computer / boot somewhere (I may have too many and I may be gradually losing my marbles - they used to be in a jar by my bed!). A reply or two saying you are planning to be there would be nice as I'm aware it is in the middle of the Easter weekend and other things may be happening instead! 🙂

This month's meet will be at Broad Oak, with the usual IRL start of 1pm, and sandwiches will be available (for those attending in person and wanting to partake). We now have a curtain across the room doorway which helps with noise given the new lack if actual doors.

For those either not wanting to attend in person, or not able to, I will be running the Jitsi room again. I think the new speaker worked slightly better than the original one.

See you there (virtually or in person) or, well, erm, not I guess - it is purely voluntary, but we still don't bite and we have no plans to.

To join virtually head to:


I will enable the lobby as well as the password of 'sat22' - a totally random change with no discernable pattern to it! 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 F-Droid). Personally I find the best option is the Electron app that can be downloaded from https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron as an AppImage or a Deb package. It is also available from Flathub and the Snap store as third party build, but I don't know how up to date those

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.

Keep safe.
