OK, yes there is a meeting tomorrow - if anyone shows up! Online using
Jitsi as per usual starting at 2pm (virtual sandwiches, etc.). I should
be there with any luck, but life is less than predictable at the moment.
Last month I managed dad's -> home -> mother-in-law's -> home -> Hedge
End -> Bishops Waltham -> home -> mother-in-law's -> home -> dad's,
which didn't end up leaving a moment to sign in from wherever I happened
Anyway, hope to speak to you tomorrow (erk, I sound like an ad from
Angel Radio.. which probably most won't have heard of!).
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.
