Skype - the root of all conference call evil

Tell everyone to go on mute

Double dial in. They are likely dialed into the audio via the Skype client and they dialed into the conference bridge number. Creating the nasty audio loop / echo

I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.

I recently began to feel Covid-19 symptoms and decided to get tested (waiting for results). My husband took the rapid and tested positive. Meet the Teacher is Monday and school starts for my students on Tuesday. If I have to quarantine, I have no idea how this will work. Will a substitute meet my parents and review the routines and procedures? Has anyone experienced missing the first week or two with your class? I need advice.

Today shit blew up so much on my two gigs all I could hear for hours was the constant barrage of pinging noises from outlook, gmail, slack and teams. Like some kind of hellish tech sounding symphony. I will probably go to sleep tonight with pings, clicks, chimes and whooshes echoing in my head into the void. Seriously y’all how do we not lose our fucking minds?

So I got invited to a zoom baby shower....by the parents of the unborn child. Am I being judgemental or is it tacky and gift grabby? If a family member or friend hosted it would feel different.

Hello all!! I wanted to create this bowl for all guitar players. I am a southpaw player and have a Fender Mustang and PRS Custom 24 Lefty. I take Zoom lessons bi-weekly from a Fender Play instructor. I must admit learning a musical instrument during a pandemic is not easy!! My current struggle is moveable power chords.

Anyone have creative ideas on how to celebrate a birthday that’s socially distant? Given the case counts and where I live outside gatherings are not possible (my fire pit is small so cant guarantee 6 foot spacing). So would have to be all virtual and i’m tired of zoom. 🤦🏽‍♀️ I guess its zoom or bust!

A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.
