I was shown in the lounge the flipcards and how to use them for drawing 
up stuff.  I plugged my 20yr old Wacom tablet and it just worked to 
write on the 'paper'.  Your mouse/pad works just was well.

This was a valuable aspect of F2F that I missed.  The ability to get 
with a small group, pull out some paper, and start drawing things up.

One challenge I have had is temporarily leaving the gather.  I am 
heading off to a session.  How do I say I am offline?  All I have been 
able to do is go silent.
