xkillyourfacex: mike_d85: The author is right. Every time you get into a conference call you miss out on quality FACETIME. It's like a horrible trap you can't eSKYPE from. Each time I get told to GOTOaMEETING I think "man, someone should invent some kind of conference system using video!"My boss tried iGoFaceSkyping and it was a disaster.
pjkraatz: mikefinch: Nope -- once a month I sit there on the phone marvelling at how more than half of my co-workers managed to dress and feed themselves up to this point.\We should post the numbers and times for our calls and just crash them all for each other...I have to do roughly 5 calls a DAY like this (minimum). I was hoping TFA would give me a sign that the end is nigh but no, only the sweet release of death will free me from this hell. The stories, though...oh man, I've heard it all.I may steal that idea for a call or two on 4/1/15. Could I press on a few dozen Farkers to perhaps bomb a call? Might be worth a beer at a San Diego County Fark party. And a recording. Gotta have the recording.The lulz. Do it for them./PM me if interested
eeyore102: I work with some incredibly smart people, but it's amazing how the first 15-20 minutes of every Google Hangout are spent on teaching the participants how to Internet.(CW IMs me) "Where is the hangout, can you invite me?"(I IM back) "Look in your calendar, there's a link there."(CW) "I can't find it, can you invite me?"(I invite him)(CW connects, then drops)(CW IMs me) "It didn't work, can you invite me again?"(other CW, in Hangout) "Check it out, I can make it give me a funny hat!"
Harry_Seldon: We use Microsoft Lync. Works great. I talk to people all over the world with clarity of talking to someone next door. Everyone has a USB headset. We can talk 1:1 or conference calls, share chat session, screens, and documents. It works nearly flawless.
AngryDragon: I see NPR is approaching CNN levels of "journalism"
