Subject: [Hampshire] Portsmouth and South East Hants LUG - virtual meet October 16th
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.
