Good morning everyone, I'm Marco from the RIPE NCC. This chat panel is meant for discussion ONLY.
If you have questions for the speaker and you want the session chair to read it out, please write it in the Q&A window also stating your affiliation. Otherwise, you can ask questions using the microphone icon.

can barely hear

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:27:57
is the audio low only for me? :)

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:28:08
Elvis, you need to turn up your headphones ;-) Good morning btw!

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:28:21
(audio is good here)

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 09:28:22
it was low to begin with but works ok now

Tore Anderson - 2023-11-28 09:29:06
Elvis, tip: click the CC button on the top, you'll get the live transcript showing which helps a lot if someone has bad/low audio

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:30:36
not using headphones, just on the iPad, volume set to max. Thanks for the tip Tore

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:31:14
it is better now, it was really weak when Marco was speaking on the microphone, could hear the presenter well

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:31:15
Is it still low for you? Like said, it's absolutely sufficient here, and my laptop's on 30% volume

Andreas Wittkemper - 2023-11-28 09:31:28
Working fine here too

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 09:32:06
I remember vaguely that ipad can have an extra amplifier.

Tore Anderson - 2023-11-28 09:32:16
No issue here either. Listening from the latop, volume at 50-60%

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:37:14
Oh, btw, does anyone know what "lite mode" does? For me, it switches to an empty screen with three toggle icons, and no audio or video...

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:37:16
whoa… so much better on the airpods :P weird that the volume on the iPad was so much lower (even at max volume)

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:37:32
👍 Elvis!

Tobia Castaldi - 2023-11-28 09:38:54
@Elmar: the Lite Mode is meant to be used by local participants

Alessandro Amirante - 2023-11-28 09:38:59
Elmar: the "lite mode" doesn't subscribe you to the audio and video feeds. It's meant to be used by onsite people to chat, use the Q&A etc. while sitting in the room

Tobia Castaldi - 2023-11-28 09:39:11

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:39:19
Ah..... that explains it. I thought I'd save the Internet a bit of bandwidth (yeah, I'm THAT old)...

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 09:39:26
Thanks :-)

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:41:47
feedback for Meetecho: I like the new menus, would have kept the participant list on the left and the chat on the right. the presenter slides keep disappear and I haven’t found the button, wish there was a button for the slides and not the agenda

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:42:38
takes a bit of fiddling around to find the presenter slides again

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:45:37
I even pinned the slides and once I open chat and participant list, the slides go away but the speakers camera stays (not pinned :)

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:47:06
fix is: click on agenda, close agenda, slides stay on the screen

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 09:50:28
does ipad use safari? if so, safari and meetecho isn't the best of matches. see pdf on ripe87 for meetecho.

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 09:50:55
using Chrome for this specific reason

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 10:00:45
there goes the stream...

Andreas Wittkemper - 2023-11-28 10:00:52
into the void

Brian Storey - 2023-11-28 10:00:54

Chris Buckridge - 2023-11-28 10:00:54

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 10:00:56
same here

Tore Anderson - 2023-11-28 10:00:56
…and the transcript

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:01:00
there is a power issue in the main room

Elmar Bins - 2023-11-28 10:01:22
Ah. And I thought it was a secret session. Good hunting!

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:01:28
It is being investigated, hopefully we will be online again soo

Tore Anderson - 2023-11-28 10:01:33
Bonus coffee break, yay ☕

Andreas Wittkemper - 2023-11-28 10:01:51
or restroom time

Chris Buckridge - 2023-11-28 10:01:59
Marco's power cut off before he could finish writing "soon"...

Brian Storey - 2023-11-28 10:02:07

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:02:18
didn’t say anything as I was thinking it was just my starlink connection buffering 🤪

Brian Nisbet - 2023-11-28 10:02:18
Sure, soon, why not?

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:02:26

Tore Anderson - 2023-11-28 10:02:32
Chris, 😂

Robert Carolina - 2023-11-28 10:02:52
Here I was, ready to complain about my hotel WiFi.

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:02:53

Chris Buckridge - 2023-11-28 10:02:59
@Elvis when in doubt, blame Musk ;)

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:03:21
Chris, I use as many as Musk’s services as I can :)

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:03:39
Marco, is the presentation still going? or has everything stopped?

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:05:06
It has stopped

Alessandro Amirante - 2023-11-28 10:05:07
Everything stopped, also onsite

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:05:47
There is still light and wifi in the main room but the whole presentation part (screens, mic is powerless)

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:06:42
they should not have tried to fix my audio issue… I got my airpods…

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:06:49
Quick update: Some new power cables are being rolled out - hopefully we will be back soon

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:08:21
Brian just announced that some more minutes are needed

Edison Garcia de Moraes Filho - 2023-11-28 10:08:24
Good morning everyone

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:11:42
Power has being restired

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:11:47

Peter Hessler - 2023-11-28 10:11:57
video and audio are back

Brian Nisbet - 2023-11-28 10:11:57
It's alivvve!

Rob Evans - 2023-11-28 10:12:01
Video back.

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 10:16:20
does this mean the video for the archive is partially lost? i mean if i try to watch later to see the whole talk?

Brian Nisbet - 2023-11-28 10:16:55
We'll have to see, Bengt. Hopefully if there is any interruption it'll be minimal.

Elvis-Daniel Velea - 2023-11-28 10:16:57
I think he just restarted his presentation

Bengt Gördén - 2023-11-28 10:17:07
ah. thanks.

Shane Kerr - 2023-11-28 10:31:44
Jim being a bad old DNS person. "The simple thing you have asked for which makes complete sense is impossible because we do not yet do it."

Peter Hessler - 2023-11-28 10:32:48
disagree. there are legitimate concerns by some ccTLDs about publishing their data. and he's correct that there are fundamental disagreements with the belief structure of how public the contents of the zone should be.

Shane Kerr - 2023-11-28 10:33:13
The ask is, "please open your data", the immediate answer should not be, "do not ask".

Peter Hessler - 2023-11-28 10:33:56
everyone's been asking, the answer has been no. if you keep asking, why would you expect a different answer? jim is suggesting doing something different.

Brian Nisbet - 2023-11-28 10:35:15
Closing the mic lines, both real and virtual.

Marco Schmidt - 2023-11-28 10:36:59
This session has now ended. The next session is the second plenary and it will start at 11:00. More info on the RIPE 87 meeting plan:
