My delayed meetings can go ahead over video link. It will be interesting to see how that works - neither of us have done it before so it could be interesting. It means we lost a week due to the virus but can finally start moving forward again.

In the meantime I get to continue to tinker with some code I've been thinking about for a while but always putting off. Some new functionality I put into one application lends itself perfectly to being put into another application, so I'm working towards a common platform to save writing and rewriting code endlessly. If it works as I'm hoping, and so far things are looking very promising, it should make life much easier for future development.

My wife and I had French toast with blueberries and maple syrup. She made it yesterday and made enough to do two days.

Struggling to get much of anything done so far. Disturbed sleep last night, no idea why. I hope I can function properly later on, got a couple of people to meet with to discuss a bunch of stuff. One meeting in person at church (a small meeting so we can easily keep our safe distance from each other) and another online.

Good meeting at church. It's strange meeting people and not shaking their hands and staying as far apart as possible but we do what we can.

The online meeting was interesting. My primary laptop has a web cam but I must have disabled it somewhere along the way because the system refused to acknowledge that it existed. Since I very seldom use a web cam I probably shut it off as a security measure, but couldn't figure out how to reactivate it. So we tried an older laptop which seemed to work but has a whole host of other issues. In the end I used my tablet, which worked just fine.

Now chilling with a coffee, wondering what to do with the evening. I could tinker with some code or read a book. I'll see if I can stay focused enough to do some code, it would be good to get another update rolled out while everything is shut down.

It turned out my webcam needed one keypress to de/activate it. When it's deactivated it's as if it disappears completely - even my system device list didn't show it as existing at all. Which is probably a good thing - if you deactivate your webcam anything that looks for the camera sees that the system doesn't have a camera, rather than seeing a camera that is disabled. Now it means I can use my laptop for video chats rather than having to prop my tablet awkwardly and hope the battery holds out.

It will be good to be able to stay in contact with more people more easily, especially with varying levels of restrictions on movement and advice to not go out more than necessary.
