Hi everyone,
 
If we're talking about Saturday 12/19 at noon, yeah it sounds good to me.

Hey Andy, one way around not having a secondary camera for show-and-tell (and who has such a thing anyway) is to photograph what you want earlier, then share it on Zoom. You can share desktop or share app (which would be your photo app). Generally, the host has this power and can share this. There is a way to default it to allow anyone to share (which is where you trust someone's not going to bust into your share with his/her share) and there's a setting to do that.

We can also share to our Honolulu Fountain Pen Club Facebook page, but we should put that up for a vote. That might mean wearing a newer shirt for some (like me).

 
I realize Blaine has a chat group up and I'll find that log in. I saw that on my iPhone but can't find that now I'm on desktop. Oh, by the way, if you send or cc doug@hdougmatsuoka.com there's more chance I'll actually catch a communication before it's overtaken by current events...

Anyway, let me know. I can host on my Zoom account if you want since I don't use it much. (We use GoToMeeting at work.)

See you soon,

 
Doug

Suits me. I have several vintage new additions, nothing new-new. One variety-pack of inks in various colors that I got with one of the vintage pen sets. Will not need more ink until I paint the barn, if then.

WZ: If we can share Flickr albums via Zoom (Present from my computer), that would be great. I already have stuff up on Flickr. If not, I can organize a folder of photos on my computer to share on Zoom.

 
Please let us know how you want to do it and share the link.

WZ: Ah, one more thing. I quit FaceBook and don’t plan to rejoin. I hesitate to recommend that other people join. If there is an alternative to that, like the chat forum Blaine set up, I’m game.

 
Thanks,
Walter

Hear ye:

The next meeting of the Honolulu Fountain Pen Club will be on Saturday, 12/19 at noon Hawaiian Standard Time which is -10 GMT. 

Everyone will see a "Share Screen" button on entry so you can share your screen, or an app, or browser window etc. So if you have photos on Flickr, you'll be able to show those. If you have anything to share, take photos and open them in your photo app or whatever and we can see them. The medium is not so good at video, but well-optimized for still images, so I'm really looking forward to seeing all the cool stuff you have been acquiring. 

 
Anyone can share their screen so be polite and don't start crashing other people's share else you will be escorted to the door by a big guy with the tatoos.
Hopefully, I'll have a "review" of my new water resistant ink.

Herewith, the details:
