I am looking forward to the meeting tomorrow.
I also use Jitsi frequently now, it is a great service. The only issue
I've had is with video when 1 or 2 have connection problems (I imagine
most of us are holiday traveling tomorrow during the meeting, in a place
with unknown internet) - I've found the best solution for that is to use
audio-only (Jitsi is very solid and reliable then). Or we can take our
chances on everyone's video speeds. We can switch to audio-only if
there are issues tomorrow.
See you shortly!
