Important Zoom Person, “Could everyone go on mute.” Text from coworker, “We can hear you poop.”
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
Anyone have a great CFP that works with folks remotely (I.e., via Skype or FaceTime) or in Boston? Looking to learn about the unknown, e.g., tax loss harvesting, 529s and other similar vehicles, etc
Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?
What % of your stock investment do you trade on frequent basis? e.g., out of my $100k invested in stock market, 90k is in index funds / ETFs for long term. I was wondering if the remaining 10k I have in “trends-driven” fund or stock (e.g., Zoom, RIOT, MGNI) should I trade frequently (sell at high, buy again when low..) Will tax implications impact decision / profits?
Whats the range for a senior manager at Zoom
What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
What do we think about leadership pressing people to put zoom videos on? Let’s hear your opinions!
Do you call people via Skype/Teams as you would on your phone (no warning) or do you ping/chat first to ask if they are available to call?
Does Salesforce (and its acquisition companies like Tableau and Slack) top up RSUs each year in addition to the original RSU grant at signing?
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
How is the wifi on cruise ships? Need wifi strong enough for Skype calls. Looking specifically at Royal Caribbean cruises.
How to deal with a spouse that has had it with my relapses. Overall doing great. Used to drink daily to excess for about ten years. Now I have a lapse about once every two years and my spouse hates me and refuses to speak with me. I honestly feel I have come along in leaps and bounds and some slack would be great, I am not perfect but a million miles better than I was. Are they being unfair or am I still a selfish drug addict that needs to give more empathy?
Me on a 6am Zoom meeting
Memo to Colleagues. For the love of God, please stop sending me Skype meeting invites. Please use a platform that is stable and not buggy. You’re welcome.
I like to toggle between fully touched up appearance and not at all on Zoom, just to remind myself…
