Hi LUGers,
	Well I was on time to the meeting but through-out my
microphone was out of action and nothing I could do restored
its function.

	Ron from BC was there early.  He was having some sort
of problem as well.  Not just sure what it was but it was annoying.

	Ken S. was next on with his cheery smile and some help
for various matters.

	John St. came in Ok but he has decided to become a politico
and will be running for a seat on the San Bruno city council.  He
sought advice about the easiest to use tool to construct a web site
for this campaign.  We all wish him every success and i think he
got some good advice from the members.

	Aaron C. came along and contributed to the conversation.

	Akkana P. phoned in from her new home and I left her and
Aaron talking as I left about 1 PM very tired from from trying
to get the microphone to work.  I rebooted and reinstalled audio
components including  kernel 5.17.5 .  I tried several other
kernels without success.

	Hopefully I will have my microphone in working order or
replaced by June 5, 2022 when the next meeting by jit.si or
in person will be.

	If anyone has anything to say about my reporting
please offer corrections asap so that the members who
read this are not confused by misinformation.
	Thanks to all who attended.


	And Now a very tiny bit of news.
