Re: RealVNC multiple user login issues.

So the desktop was less glitchy when I tried using my the browser version of realvnc: https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/down ... er/chrome/

Re: Have a laugh at my quality antenna

This looks great! I love making stuff out of whatever is laying around. I had no idea that I could make a flight tracker with an rpi. What kind of software are you using?
