Well, that was good. I enjoyed meeting you all. I won't uninstall Zoom if
there's a likelihood that we might do it again.

Worth keeping it anyway: you never know who else might invite you to a
meeting. (Railway enthusiasts perhaps? Family?)

Well I do hope there's another umra one! It was lovely seeing you guys at
last, putting faces to names. But there are a lot of others who might like
to take part in a future meeting. So do hang on to your Zoon. I think that
was my 4th time. The first was with a friend, just to see if it would work,
with no video. It worked, but we realised then that trying to play music
together was never going to be possible.

There are a number of free classes on zoom. I do tai chi. It is a
formerly London class that I'd not be able to go to as it's too far
but this makes it easy.

Yes, thank you Sally, that was a brilliant idea! Maybe, if we have
another one make it for a different time of day so that umrats who
couldn't manage the evening might be able to join in.

I get the hint! Perhaps coffee and cake one morning.

Zoom has its problems but so many of us are missing our normal socialising
that I think it's a good substitute for the moment. It's difficult when
there are a lot of us, and there is an option to signify when you want to
talk but I think that's too much like school!

If I am "hosting", I do try to make sure everyone has a chance to chat, as
I would if I were having a normal party (in the distant past), but
sometimes people are just happy to listen.

In the excellent new 6-part programme with Micheal Sheen and David
Tennant they are on zoom and in the last episode others joined them
and David and micheal were raising their hand, like in school, to
speak :). Maybe we shoudl do that? You can mute us all and unmute
those who speak. But that is not very like a social gatehrine. People
very often do all talk at once there in twos and threes.

At the Zoom meetings which I attend frequently we often raise a hand to
indicate to the presenter that we want to say something. It's more like
a classroom session than the social gathering that was the Umzoom we had
yesterday, but less like school in that we don't stretch our arms as
high as we can and jump up and down!

Staged was of course carefully scripted although they managed to make it

It’s how it is. And it works perfectly well - the host or whoever has the
controls (in our church we have a tech leader, plus the morning’s leader
and during the times when we’re joining up its a free for all, but during
the formal part when mics are muted we put up the hand and tech man and
leader get us sorted. It’s not remotely schoolish, it’s how I would work in
a normal large gathering with always adding one’s name when it’s a group
for the visually impaired. That bit is a bit harder and one can forget as
the meeting goes on.

The trouble with Zoom (as with anything, probably) it works very
differently on different devices. My first attempt was on my PC which lacks
a camera (a bonus I think, never like seeing myself) and a microphone,
though I have one somewhere I could plug in. It was a laughter yoga
session, I could see and hear everyone else - the teacher was shown large,
which was great. When anyone else spoke, or laughed loudly, they leapt into
the large position - not so good.

On my tablet I can see one large picture or four small ones. With 14 or 15
people in the room I have to choose which group of four I watch, or just
watch the single larger picture which sometimes changes when somebody
speaks, but not always.

I've tried it with an art lesson, found I could pin the view I wanted to be
the largest one on my tablet, joined a second time on my netbook for a
general view of everyone. I've only done it once, it was exhausting.

It was good to hear a lot of voices in my living room on Saturday, like
being at a 'party' as an observer. Actually having a conversation with any
one person in a large group is impossible. Even joining the general
conversation is tricky.

It's how we do the parish council meetings (I don't think we've exceeded
11) - someone raises their hand, and the chair then calls on them. We
mute ourselves, the tech lead doesn't (though has the facility).

On the PC, you can choose between "speaker view" and "grid view"; in
speaker view, the person speaking is shown large, with others shown
small - and it does jump as you describe. I don't like it either. In
grid view everyone stays where they are, and it draws a yellow border
around - or a yellow line under - anyone making significant noise. You
switch between the two using circles at the top right of your screen -
but those disappear unless you waggle your mouse cursor in that corner.
(Cisco webex works identically, other than that I'm not shown as one of
the grid, whereas I was in Saturday's zoom.)

I did try but it was tricky. If more than one person speaks at once you
can't hear anyone and any visual feedback doesn't work.

D#1, who is working from home and attending a lot of online meetings finds
the lack of visual feedback very difficult. While you can see everyone, you
have no idea who they are looking at, or if their image has 'frozen'. On a
telephone call you do get clues from 'mm' and little sighs.

I watched a 4-way interview the other day, about the 'lockdown' episode of
'Doctors'. The interviewer didn't even seem to be listening half the time,
too busy thinking about her next question - the answers were being recorded
so didn't really matter to her. The director and two actors seemed to
'behave' much better, listening to each other and responding to what was
said.

On the quiz My Generation[1] last week, they played Charlotte Green's
famous dissolution into helpless giggles on the Today programme in 2008.
The contestant was unable to identify her as asked. No wonder the
country's going to the dogs.
(The clip is here, if umrats would like to remind themselves. It still
makes me laugh along.
)

And what happened as a result of listening to the clip was Not My Fault.
I'm sure Mrs McKechnie will be fine in a day or two and those
antimacassars needed replacing anyway. It's very unfair of Matron to
confiscate my radio and put me back on the purple tablets.

Do we know WHY she dissolved into giggles like that? I know a joke's not funny if it has
to be explained, but I don't get it! I seem to remember something about bees buzzing at

In addition, I never fail to dissolve into puerile giggles at this
classic TMS clip:

I heard the original when it was broadcast live and couldn't move for
laughing.

P.S. Test Cricket returns next week. Hurrah!

Green's famous dissolution into helpless giggles on the Today
programme in 2008.  The contestant was unable to identify her as
asked.  No wonder the country's going to the dogs.
(The clip is here, if umrats would like to remind themselves.  It
still makes me laugh along.
http://youtu.be/kKBWsy5A2bA )
Do we know WHY she dissolved into giggles like that?
I think she was just amused at the awfulness of the recording...
According to various reports, someone said in her ear that it sounded
like a trapped bee. Which we didn't hear, thus making her chuckles as
she was reading an obituary all the more embarrassing. I believe TBC -
as I'm not surprised she would - subsequently apologised, privately, to
the family of the person involved (Abby Mann IIRR).

I heard the original when it was broadcast live and couldn't move for
laughing.
P.S. Test Cricket returns next week. Hurrah!
And what's more I'll be at my son's house watching it😊. Do we know
if a commentator actually said "The bowler's Holding, the batsman's
Willey."? Or is that just one one those things that really should have
been said.

Yurse, it was indeed uttered, some years back I was putting together a
mastertape for cassette duplication for a company; the content was a whole
string of sporting bloopers and that sequence was one of ‘em. The cassette
was being sold to raise funds for a charity - though the details are now
rather hazy.

If you can manage to clear the haze, I'm sure somerats would still make
a contribution to the charity if you could find said mastertape ...

Then there's Richard Stilgoe's take on the partnership of Umbrella
Thompson and Dennis Lillee ...

The official version I've read is that that no recording of it has ever
been located and that Brian Johnston probably made the story up for his
"An Evening With..." performances. If you can find it, Mike, you'll
make history (and probably a bit of money, too).

If you scroll down you can hear Johnners say that he's not sure whether
he really said it. But, of course, in those circumstances a story
doesn't have to be true; it just has to be funny.

something about bees buzzing at the time? OAM?
According to the comment below the recording, on You Tube:

Normally straight-laced sounding Radio 4 presenter Charlotte Green can't
keep a straight face after someone in the studio apparently whispers in
her ear that the world's oldest sound recording sounds like 'a bee in a
jar'.

Thanks, Serena, I knew there was something bee-related in there!

I still wonder whatever became of the continuity announcer/newsreader called Astley Jones,
who stumbled to an incoherent halt whilst reading the news just before the evening Archers
epi sometime in the Nineties. I don't think he was ever heard again on R4, which seemed to
me a bit unfair as apparently he had been struck down by a migraine.

I don't remember that but do recall watching in horror as the weather man
on Meridian TV had a stroke during his broadcast. Fortunately I wasn't the
only one who realised what was going on so he was treated quickly and back
at work a few months later.

At the first reading I misread the venue and thought it was here

It seemed a tad out of the way - or an extreme attempt at social distancing.

Barnard Castle is a lovely town. We were supposed to be there this spring,
morris dancing at the biennial Black Sheep Day of Dance, but of course, like
everything else this year, it was cancelled. I was particularly annoyed that
Cummings managed to go there when we couldn't.

I'm afraid the Ceremony has already been arranged at Barnard Castle and
negotiations with Guests to present the BTAs are at an advanced stage.
Re-negotiating to include digital rights would be out of the question.

I trust that umrats will attend the Ceremony in the usual way.

But if we have a coffee zoom during the day some time, when you are
not busy with supper etc, might you be persuaded to enzoom and join
it?
Indeed?
I ain't sayin' I will and I ain't sayin' I won't.

Well, don't tell Matron but we might have cris.....s. I heard sounds
on Saturday of someone eating them.

Well, that was good. I enjoyed meeting you all. I won't uninstall Zoom if
there's a likelihood that we might do it again.
Though I've heard Zoom mentioned a lot, I'm not too sure what it is.
Anything to do with Australian Zoom pills?
