Just test it first. I thought I had it sorted last week but it took a couple of false starts to get it functioning.

If you go to "Advanced sharing options" you can share the PC audio without sharing your screen, too.

That’s perfect Grim..., thank you, because I realised last night that if I played a song through my laptop they’d probably see the title and singer on the media player :D

You can get round this by just sharing one particular app (say, PowerPoint) and click to your music player without anyone seeing it.

Does this sound like something I could do, or would I make a very obvious hash of it? :D

Mimi, do you have more than one screen? If you do, it's easy to share the one screen you want them to see (say with the question in) and have the media player on the other screen

Or if you have powerpoint (or google's free alternative) then you can embed the audio in that. It does not show you the name of the tune being played when you embed it.

You'll be fine! There may be no reason to share your screen at all for a music round - just play the music, they'll hear it perfectly and then be completely unable to say who sung it or what it's called (wait, no, the latter bit is just me).

I may not make it tomorrow, I'm on call from 2pm to 11pm so it just depends on whether anyone breaks anything late in the day and needs an urgent fix.

We've potentially got two TKD sessions again this evening so we may be 15 minutes or so late, as we were last week.

Currently sitting outside Rico in Warrington, where I'm to collect a part for a job in Manchester. Rico were contacted to ask them to stay open until 7.45 especially for me.

I got here at 7.22.

They've locked up and buggered off.

Do a House Of Games round and get the kids to write the questions (though Nola is a tough act to follow).
