Thanks for offering to answer questions. I asked one but couldn't log onto Zoom due to being busy. Do we know when notes of the hour will be out? Samuel/RhinosF1 On Fri, 5 Jun 2020 at 08:30, Pine W wrote: > Agreed that office hours are a nice idea, although > > 1. For privacy reasons,I don't

I agree. youtube  (+zoom) and chat worked very well. I still had problem follow all that being said, and would like the "black" notice to have been used more and show (just a few seconds) the question being discussed. And besides applauds for Maggie being straight forward, I also want to
