So, so many zoning hearings canceled due to online snafu today

The WebEx the Zoning Board of Appeal uses for pandemic-era hearings turned into DeadEx today and the board had to cancel all of the day's hearings. They'll be rescheduled, the board says.

WebEx using both the Amazon Cloud and Microsoft (Azure) cloud.

Maybe it is related to zoning board's 'technical issue'

Clicking on the log-in link on the ZBA page would bring up what looked like a WebEx page for a split second before going to a "site not found" error.

Most of the rest of city government uses Zoom.

To be fair, WebEx has worked fairly well for them over the past couple of years.

They claim it's a security thing. Many of the government agencies are allowed to join Zoom or other meetings, but only host them on WebEx (WebEx of course being a total piece of crap).

You plans for the day didn’t pan out.

Don’t misinterpret. I love your summaries of the meetings.

Board of Appeals hearings again. If you can jam 300 drunk people into a bar/restaurant you can have a hearing with 75 concerned abutters.
