They are usually there ^^, but I don't think they have been released yet - maybe 1st of March when the eNews letter comes out?

Eric,

Please sign up to the BCSS eNews which you’ll get sent to your email address. It’s published every month and contains news and articles as well as the Zoom talks for that month.

The March eNews should be out on Sunday so try and sign up before then.

Cheers
Al

Interesting to see the Association of Cactus and Succulent Growers of Prague to have two zoom talks. Although inviting the BCSS members, I take it the talks are not in English?

Yes, as far as I know, the talks are not in English.

Something went wrong with the talk this evening. I think I missed about half if not more of all pictures. The things the speaker talked about surely did not fit with the picture that was shown to me. The same picture kept being presented while the speaker was already five pictures further. The only thing I could do was to restart the entire zoom log in to get the current picture. But of course that was something I needed to do every minute or so...

At the looks of the participants number going down from 400 to 300 I was not the only one.

I also had problems with tonight's talk. I did notice some problems with the pictures but the main problem for me was the audio from the speaker that was very distorted. I couldn't find anything in my settings to improve the quality and everyone else that spoke was much clearer
