Thanks for the arranging the meeting Mike, lovely to see some new faces too. Apologies for my technical challenges- I still can’t make the camera work!
Hopefully next time...:)

It wasn’t covered with something was it? I only ask because I have done *exactly* this :D Maybe a little sliding ‘camera cover’?

I wonder if they were using a phone or tablet, and the camera was pointing at something red.

How zoom works, settings etc., varies depending on the device you using. For example, I get the 10 minutes left timer when using a PC, not on my tablet. Some of the menu options are in different places; some are not there on my tablet.

I know less than nothing about getting technology items to work but I’ve had frequent issues when trying to speak with my Grandchildren - all they, and I, could see was a red square. I had folded back the front red cover of my iPad case in order to access the screen and type. @Flower do you have a red cover on your iPad/phone?

It was lovely to have you join us @Annemarie

We’ll have another next month, and it can be really nice to just exchange smalltalk and frustrations, plus find out a bit more about people, of course. You didn’t get the chance to see @Stitch147 ’s home ‘pub’, but there’s always next time :)
Sorry about that, laptop was in the Disney dining room. Pub next time. Even Tigga said hello today.

Can’t remember if I have said me too please for the November zoom but it’s a definite Me Too please (if there’s room)

There will be room for any comers at these ‘meet’ ups.
I know Mike is away this week, but he has posted a reminder each time and added extras each time.

I look forward to ‘seeing’ you soon.

Having missed the last two I can’t remember where to look for the details of the log in.
Please can you remind me too.
