I think it's great that you started the meeting room and have kept it going for so long. For me, it is the closest thing to playing on something like a live radio program. My mic is on but I don't know how well I'm being heard and/or how well my contribution is being received. My music is just going out there. Everyone has been very supportive. Also, it has caused me to learn so many songs on dulcimer that I didn't know I could play on a dulcimer.
You played great last night. Your new dulcimer sounds real good. I think I've experienced a computer lock up once or twice, but I've always been able to restart the application and get back in line. I try not to run anything else (email, browsing, etc.) while I'm on line and have had great results.
You played great, banged up thumb and all. Noter style is the way to go if you have a damaged digit.
