Yeah, but I couldn't hear you guys, and I kept getting kicked out because my internet was going out for minutes at a time.

Oh right lol.

I never actually kicked you out, you never disconnected. I've not kicked anyone out yet and I won't unless they're abusive.

Sorry.

So yesterday I started an hour early.

I'm considering making this a permanent change, would everyone be okay with this or should we stick with the old time?

Yay! Earlier is good.
Yesterday I wasn't prepared for the early start. But yes, better. And ppl can always join later if that's better for them.

In addition, the Internet was down for much of Sunday, so... I dunno, man. :D

All good things must come to an end

Don't worry, I'm not cancelling happy hour.
However, one good thing that's come to an end is our freeloading off of my PT's zoom account, as he's recently stopped teaching online fitness classes so has cancelled it.
This brings up the question of whether everyone is happy with my hosting thus far (if so I'm happy to register for a paid account myself) or if someone would like to take it over.

May very well be busy for a big chunk of Saturday for work. And it may be like that for a few weeks.
