No, you're not hallucinating :D

I will be running a video chat using Jitsi Meet from 8pm on Monday for an hour or so if anyone wants to drop in and just say hi.

You will need Chrome, Firefox or Edgium, a webcam (if you have one) and a set of headphones and a mic (the built in one on your laptop will be OK). The reason for picking Jitsi rather than Zoom is it runs in a browser window without the need to install an app, so if you're constrained to a work machine you can't install software on, you should still be able to connect :D

The meeting link will be https://meet.jit.si/PeterboroughWargamesClub

I will have the call up tonight (Thursday 2nd) from now till about 10:30pm, and Friday 9-10pm if anyone wants to test out their connection, although I may not be paying attention to the screen all the time :D

I'll have the video up by 9 tonight for testing, though you might see an empty office for a bit if we aren't through with supper :D

Thanks Mike - hopefully remember to join you at 8pm Monday. Not heard of Jitsi before so interested to see how it works. Thanks

Martin S-C

I'll try and make it. Are you going to sting us for 4 quid each as well? ;)

Mike Whitaker

I'll let you off :D

Aha - thanks to Rob for helping with connection.
Thanks for organising the chat Mike - good connection from my side once I had the password.
Nice to hear about your next WW2 demo game build and Colin's growing lead mountain.
Looking forward to Martin's ECW campaign. Nice map and characters set up. Not looking forward to read how my orders will be interpreted (did I really write that!). Tabletop battle are probably going to involve some innovation but I am sure we can manage that. Maybe some updates next Monday.
