2021.08.28 virtual meeting

It was such a glorious sunny bank holiday weekend, I decided to join the meeting sitting outside using the jitsi app on my phone. We talked about the M1 Apple MacBook, C++ and C# programming using visual studio. Windows 11 also got a mention. Arthur has a new 3D printer with extra fine resolution. Theo continues to improve the game he is developing. I talked about the Pinebook pro laptop and the pinecone RISC V development board.
