I've kept the same Zoom code for all my socializing meetings, and I just activate it at whatever time we're getting together. It bears no relation to the time on the invitation whatsoever. :)

It's infuriating, but I suppose we shouldn't be surprised because these are the adults raising the children who are in our classrooms acting surprised that rules actually apply to them. <!--grumpy-->

Zoom meetings are private if the invitation has not been posted publicly.

I was just reading an article about "Zoom Fatigue" that suggested using audio only whenever you weren't going to be presenting or talking for a significant portion of the meeting. I definitely feel...

I wholeheartedly disagree with this. "You do what's best for you" is what gets us into a situation where people say that they get to do what they want because it's "my risk to take." No, it's not....

I'm sorry you have to watch that happen. That would be so infuriating. :(

This is my thinking. Originally, we were going to have DH do all the shopping because he's out working anyway. But I'm just as likely to be an asymptomatic carrier as he is if we're sharing space and...

You should have access to the pro version of Zoom with a school account. Ours all got upgraded automatically.

But I agree with the rest!!

Nobody is "hacking" into anything. They're following publicly posted links. Think "Wedding Crashers," not "Sneakers."

Just create a private link and require a password. Problem solved.

This is easily fixed by not recording your videos. Participants can tell if you're recording, and you can turn off participants' ability to record.

That seems unreasonably high. Are you sure they didn't take out too much? I would look into it more. That's almost as much as we pay an actual accountant.

Our kinder teacher is doing small groups over Zoom. They have paper and pencils at home, so she demonstrates and then they practice and show her.

She also posts videos in Google classroom.

I so do not miss my classroom! I'm kind of loving the online teaching :) except for being concerned about the kids without the homelife to access it. :(

It was $50 a month for 2 dogs and a cat, which is less than insurance for each would cost. These days, I would probably do $80 or so because our vet is $40 for a basic check. If my vet was more...

That's awesome! I was just telling DH we could point my doc cam at a board game and use a different computer to chat. 😅

Turning the computer upside down is clever!
