Pausing a lesson

How do I do so on my lap top?
Is there a "Group " in Auckland?

If you’re playing from the website, instead of downloading, you should be able to press the Play button again to pause. See this thread from yesterday:

Hi Brian,
There isn’t a group in Auckland yet, that I know of, but the best thing is if you start another thread with something like ‘Any SSiWers in Auckland?’ as the topic so that it comes up in the list on the left, and hopefully others in or near Auckland will see it and get in touch. If you do that I can put a note in the weekly email and let people know about it. As someone that used to live in Auckland I would love to see an SSiW meetup happening there!
