OK, with the rising cases of the new variant, my challenges with looking
after my dad (including isolating as much as possible) and having just
been boosted (no idea how I'll feel tomorrow, but hopefully not too
bad), we are back online only for the next meet (tomorrow!!).
My movements are a little up in the air with my dad, sorting out some
bits prior to a funeral next week and family (on the other side) down
for the weekend, but I hope to pop in and out at the very least. The
usual, virtual wise, start of 2pm, although it has to be said there is
sometimes someone there earlier and the Jitsi room (if that's the right
term) starts whenever the first person gets there!
For those I don't see before, have a good Christmas and New Year.
I will enable the lobby as well as the 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
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.
