A strange experience today. It was time for our monthly support group in Canterbury. This time Mavis had arranged that we should give our presentation as the Speaker. Mavis checked weeks ago that they had a projector and that they had access to it. All we needed was our presentation and a laptop. I had reservations that as this was to be a do it yourself job there could be problems.
It seems the remote for screen and projector were in a cupboard .so with the screen sorted and wi fi password on my laptop. The problems began we could not connect we tried all my cables no good several frantic phone-calls for help resulted in zilch. Lots of volunteers all trying my leads and swarming over my keyboard. Nothing.
I was persuaded to do my presentation with no power point. So I had my laptop on a table so I could see my presentation as a guide and just talk. I found it hard, but I did it.
Much to my surprise I got a rousing round of applause, They liked it.
Mavis decided to postpone hers due to the IT problems.
Afterwards They came and asked me questions. I was amazed to find one guy who came and said he understood every word I said as he was also an employee of the same shipyard.
Well thats my day.
