I am very sorry I am missing this! It sounds very interesting I wanted to listen and learn, but I’ having a very tough time connecting to the OFTC webchat. It seems slow or something. I finally got through but then it told me I needed to do a bunch of administrative stuff, so am currently locked out.

However, I noticed this a few weeks ago but haven’t seen it mentioned here. 

See post #85. 

Back to slogging through trying to get into #tor-meeting.
