doug>......by next meeting, maybe the wow factor of our WLUG Jitsi meeting
will have faded. Or not!
Either way, as we continue, i say THANKS, Very Cool (so far!) to have
household members bop in to say hi.
FEATURE: potential quick peek/hi's to/from your family/etc,
some of whom we might know, + some we'd never "meet" otherwise!
So get your laptop webcam working if you dare in May.
Or...especially when lacking a pc-with-webcam, you might easily
USE YOUR CELLPHONE to connect to Jitsi, as a couple of us did last week.
I merely pointed my cellphone browser (google phone, if that matters)
at the WLUG Jitsi link and it immediately offered me the free app !
(Part of the "too easy"if I don't mind "buying" a $0.00 app to
battle cabin fever, show my ugly face and see my esteemed friends).
TECH TWEAK for such meeting(s):? we should start with "audio/volume
since our 10-or-so crowd unfortunately had "some kinda loud, others very
and one might even get confused between weak/low-volume, vs other

I just wanted to give a shout out to everybody who showed up to the
virtual meeting last night. It was cool to see Maddog show up, I'm glad
he's staying safe and healthy.
Yeah, there were a couple of audio/video hiccups, but I thought overall it
I shared my screen a couple of times and that worked just fine as well.
One cool thing that was brought up doing the meeting and I thought was
worth talking about is "vscodium" which is a 100% open source recompile of
the visual studio code editor. The big difference is that the vscode as
shipped from microsoft contains telemetry tracking data that gets sent back
to the mothership... https://vscodium.com/
solves that problem.
We obviously jibber jabbed about COVID19 and folding@home and Logan
showed off the facemasks he's been printing as well as the antennae he's
building to contact a long lost satellite in geostationary orbit.
While it wasn't the same as a physical meeting, when we do manage to get
ourselves all back in the same room, I think it's something we'll
definitely incorporate into the physical meetings.
Stay safe, stay healthy and wash your hands!
We'll see what May brings us and decide from there...
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
