I am in the process of putting this video together. My plan is, I’ll open up the chat, if any of you have anything you care to begin with, we’ll start there. Failing this, I’ll play the video I am putting together, and we’ll open it up again after that.

I’ll note in advance something that was brought up on the prior show. The screen sharing function of our video chat software here, it apparently does a poor job of streaming videos from my computer to you in the chat. On the member chat page, there is a video embed above the chat box. You may have a better viewing experience if you use that embed than if you watch using the video chat interface, but unfortunately there is no way to  You can still use the text chat below this during the video feed, and I’ll answer questions in the chat box.
