Your advice, ideas, and the effort you've invested, are greatly 
appreciated. Thank you!

As you would expect, the newer Cloud9 is clearly superior, in function. 
I don't think there's a F/LOSS download though!
(would be more than a slight surprise were Amazon to do so)

There was a product on the original list: Koding. IIRC this is delivered 
as a docker module?Kubernetes. I suppose such is beyond the capacities 
of a BBB, even a RPi4 (USB-C confusion and higher-current demands 

I don't think I'm going to find sufficient time to try that option - and 
offering the PUG attendees three choices now (TeamViewer, 
PythonAnywhere, and Cloud9) is probably more than enough and heading 
into 'overload' territory.

That said, the idea of being able to completely control the whole 
service, from-soup-to-nuts, is attractive - for reasons alluded-to earlier.

* was blown-away by the price/specs of the nVidia Jetson Nano (similar 
form-factor, SBC + add-ons), which I've been looking at for image 
manipulation and video editing/production. Sadly, the BBB may have 'had 
its day'?

The claim is that "The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind 
exceedingly fine.", so please ensure that you don't fall into the machinery!

Perhaps you'll be more in the mood for Robin Williams: (something like) 
0300! [pronounced oh-three-hundred, ie 3am, which he described as] Oh as 
in: Oh my God it's early!
 From the movie "Good Morning Vietnam", and employing typical sardonic 
military humor. Another (borrowed from a British unit), which may apply 
well to your jury-duty is "hurry up and wait"...
(hope it goes well/is not too boring!)
