Henry's Hunan Restaurant

Trip planning:

Virtual: Dial-in numbers also available at the
Please use earbud(s)/headphone(s) or mute yourself to avoid audio
feedback issues, also please if you have background sound/noise
issues mute yourself when not talking.
Generally works quite fine with reasonably modern Firefox
Chrome/Chromium, Microsoft Edge, possibly others (requires WebRTC
(Wikipedia: WebRTC
(can also do some testing here: Probably
don't worry about minor items like "Reflexive connectivity" )), from
desktop, laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc.

Meeting Details...

The meetings are always free, but dinner is not (unless you are our
guest speaker, in which case we also treat you to dinner). For
Henry's Hunan Restaurant, if folks are agreeable, we'll share and
dine "family" style, and split up the costs, and typical cost per
person including tax and tip (but not including beverages beyond
complementary tea) would be in the $15.00 to $31.00 range, and
commonly around $18.00 to $27.00. Cash preferred to ease splitting
up the check. One can also specifically order the dish(es) one
needs/prefers (e.g. for dietary considerations) - and we also
commonly order some dish(es) that may meet various dietary
considerations) (e.g. vegetarian, non-pork, ...). Punctual arrival
recommended for optimal dining experience, as we expect to be
ordering at that time.
At approximately 7:00 P.M. we start our presentation/talk, or more
informal talk/discussion if we don't have a particularly
presentation/talk/presenter or special guest arranged.


giveaways (& wanted), hardware, CDs/DVDs, books/publications, ...

Got some (computer, etc.) hardware, etc. you're looking to give
