Personally I'm getting Skype, Zoom, Facebook and Discord chats from students LOL. DISCORD! The gamers are coming for me.

I need a shower every day. Think I forgot to brush my teeth today, though, because I hate brushing teeth before coffee (but deal with it on work days). Then I get busy and its 4pm and I'm like **** I forgot to do that.

I also get dressed but its leggings so let's be real, it's barely a step above pajamas.

Also Zoom is not the worst thing in the world if you lock it down properly but I would love some Webex for Girl Scouts meetings.


They still have some major privacy issues, primarily that they're still not being very up-front about what they're doing. At least I know how Google is selling my data.

But I've been more into Jitsi lately. It's completely open source, and completely free. It's also browser based so I don't have to install anything on my computer. It does have mobile apps, though.

I'm less concerned with Zoom for my own use, it's more that I don't like it for kids.

That's the rub with distance learning and working. There's a risk in doing things online.

Just like all of my life, I shower everyday.

 

I am more motivated to work if I dress up for work (put on pants and a flannel shirt).  Days where I didn't have meetings and I just wore a tshirt and shorts I just ended up playing computer games all day. 

 

I bought a pair of clippers and I am about to cut my own hair.

I used it for work sometimes before the SHTF, but now I am a Zoom master.  I like it better than Skype.  But in the last week, my Zoom has been getting a ton of updates.  I asked IT about it, and heard it's because there are a lot of bored sickos out there bombing Zoom meetings, and either cussing people out, or sharing their screens and showing porn.  That might be amusing during a board meeting at Nabisco, but there are a lot of kids out there in Zoom class sessions, and that is terrible!  They should be hunted down by the FBI.

In order for Zoom to be secure, you absolutely need to use password protection for the meeting. The reason people use Zoom is because people can just click on a link and go to the meeting without having to log in.

Yeah we are doing passwords, and waiting rooms too.  IT said that some Zoom bombers are just using the link and entering random numbers at the end.
