Hallelujah. On shore for the first time in a month. I was beginning to despair. Have a great weekend, Muggles. Pray for an easterly course for Isaias!

Just thought I would share this. In this Era of Zoom, if you don't have a webcam, there is a free app on www.kinoni.com that you download on your computer and your smart phone. It basically turns your phone into a camera and microphone. I just did the download, and it works! I can use my PC for Zooming now!
assuming you have a smartphone....there are still some holdouts...usually the same ones whose computer has no camera
I think Heidi's shot was aimed over my bow. At last week's zoom call, I was on twice. Once with my computer so I could see everyone but the camera in my HP is broken but I don't use the camera much anyway so it did not bother me. I then called in on my iPhone so I could use the camera there.

Done and I think I'm done. I have an answer that I can defend nicely, but doesn't have that 100% click. Will ponder it a bit more before sending it in.

Very sure I have the right answer but still missing a piece that would confirm it. I see enough pieces to walk the dock confidently to shore, but will be glad to see why some are commenting on “clever construction.” ? Frosty margarita please.

I’m also trying to help my mom. We have a Zoom baby shower coming up.

Enjoyed it and am looking forward to Monday's rabbit hole discussion, since I spent a while in one! But safely ashore now.

Ashore for a change. This one came more easily than I expected. I had half of it last night and woke up realizing what more I needed to do.

I saw almost all of it and still couldn't get the mechanism for a couple of hours, I am not a smart man. Now I am safely ensconced in the warm arms of Nike.

On shore. Not entirely comfortable but I have a good explanation, if I’m wrong.

if you're not 100% on this one, you probably don't have the right answer. Once you find the steps required, you have a very solid answer for this one.

Best of luck everyone.

Aha, wasn't done. Knew there had to be more, and now everything clicks and is 100%
