AngryDragon: I see NPR is approaching CNN levels of "journalism"
Pocket Ninja: Every day, at 6:30 a.m., I join a conference call with colleagues on the East Coast. I call an 800 number, then enter a six-digit conference room number, then a PIN. And despite the group remaining largely unchanged, once a week, something goes wrong. When I conference with outsiders, there's a problem every other call. There's the "oops I got the wrong dial-in" problem. There's the "PIN is too long to remember" problem. There's the "is so-and-so on the line?" problem. And the "someone hasn't muted the line and is a mouth breather" problem.It's possible that you and the people you work with are halfwits.
Harry_Seldon: Everyone has a USB headset.
Pocket Ninja: It's possible that you and the people you work with are halfwits.
Ambivalence: Pocket Ninja: It's possible that you and the people you work with are halfwits.I think this is very likely. I used to have to dial into a team lead meeting every week from home (because they always seemed to happen on my days off) and I would sit there with the phone muted playing video games through it.
HawgWild: Oh, man, I hope so. I HATE conference calls!
mr lawson: My headphone...let me show it to you
