No May Meeting because of the Corona Virus
Anyone with ideas for a remote meeting?
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
With no end in sight for the current pandemic, the only way we can get together in the near future and perhaps beyond is via on-line sessions.
One tool for this is ZOOM. ZOOM is free and works on most computers, smart phones and tablets. Phones and tablets should be ready-to-go. Older computers may require some updates.
The obvious requirement is for an internet connection (the faster the better) and a speaker. To do two-way communications (not required) a camera and microphone are required. If your computer doesn't have built-in audio/visual, very capable units can be purchased from Walmart, Target and Amazon for about $20. These are usually plug-and-play.
Help can be had here https://biz30.timedoctor.com/how-to-use-zoom/
