I split after a few minutes because there was so much diversity in the level of questions (I'm a newb) and competition for attention. A lot of side conversations drowned out main taik.
It seems there is enough interest and need for multiple sessions. Perhaps there could be a separate meeting for beginners or make the first half hour a basic intro for newbies. Or break out into smaller groups based upon subject/need of attendees.

It's always a good meeting. Andy and Pat (Is Pat the new organizer? Thanks Pat!) were very generous with their knowledge and tooks a wide variety of questions When the group broke into multiple discussions, things got hard to hear. In that space a single focus is more effective. Andy, please extend our thanks to your lovely wife for her yummie cookies!
