It's actually worse than that here. Virtually no deliveries seem to be quoted
till December :(

Just to make it more interesting, it seems the audio of none of my machines work
on the LAC test site except my laptop, and that already has a camera which is at
least reasonable.

This is probably a combination of hardware, distro and browser version, so it
looks like I'll be going with the laptop... carefully. It's getting a bit long
in the tooth. Still, it will be a 'learning experience' as they say.

It seems with BBB if you share screen, this includes the browser window.
Whereas somehow the Zoom program manages to hide itself.

I can only guess it is hiding, grabing the screen, then displaying itself
again. Clever people these web-foot types :)

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
