You can join without a webcam. And if you have a webcam, you can choose to join without using it. Although, it makes for a much more sociable event if we can see everyone.

As a reminder, it's very helpful to use the 'gallery view' which tiles all the people onto the screen, in preference to the 'speaker view'.

If anyone does any screensharing, it's worth noting that you can adjust that to be full-window or to be side-by-side with a gallery.

If not speaking, and especially in a noisy environment, please mute your microphone

Would there be any interest in any gaming or a high score challenge?
We could possibly set up a breakout room specifically for this or just do it in the main room by pointing your camera at the beeb screen or sharing your screen if you are using an emulator. It'd probably be a good idea to have the sound muted if its in the main room.

Unfortunately only one person at a time can usefully share their screen, unless they have some helpful extra software.

So a breakout room will be the best way to go for this if there is any interest, unless screensharing is limited to one per meeting rather than one per room.

Breakout would suit me, and perhaps anyone else who wouldn't be into the high score compo.

Ah, sorry - thought I'd mentioned this, Ed has already picked two (mystery) games for the 7.30 - 8pm high score slot that's on the schedule!

(No pub quiz yet, so that can be ditched for this week at least, but let's see if we can get something in for the final hour of the Cambridge 'replacement' if Jason x2 are up for it eh?

Id like to join in. I don't want a slot unless anyone wants to know about Pi1MHz or anything else I do.
Robert, Simon and I met earlier on Zoom and have allocated you a 10am slot to share info about Pi1MHz and your other projects, hope that's ok!

I guess I still have the wrong information, since I did not receive a 2nd pm and Zoom says the the meeting is scheduled for 3pm.

Could I say a big thanks to the organisers and all the paricipants for an excellent day. I think it flowed really well.

Thanks
