@strypey Good to have this thank u. D'you have a link for Michel's recorded talk? I'm having trouble navigating the site - hadn't previously found Pun Ngai's talk.

You can replace with or in the URL if it makes it easier for you to use, or you can just search for the talk titles in the search bar.
