I'm still having a problem capturing the audio from the remote site.
(Eventually I'll find the right settings.)

Not all of which are under the control of the presenter.

9-5-2012 Rockland PC Users Group and JCC in Rockland County NY

The flight from Albuquerque to Minneapolis was uneventful and so was the flight from
Minneapolis to NY's La Guardia airport until we came to within 120 miles of NY.
At that point, the pilot informed us that there where some weather delays and we might be delayed
by about 1 hr.
15 minutes later came the next announcement: We're low on fuel and are being diverted to Syracuse NY for
refueling. About 1 1/2 hrs later, we were airborne again and on our way to the original destination.
The landing was smooth as silk at La Guardia. Unfortunately they didn't have a gate available and we sat on the tarmac
for some time. Once they finally assigned us a gate, and we pulled up to the Jetway, we where told that the Jetway had been set up for a
larger plane and they where not able to align it with or smaller plane due to mechanical difficulties with the Jetway.
At about 11 PM, the problem was finally solved and we where able to get off the pane. The plane was originally supposed to land at 5 PM.
