Re: Zoom etiquette

Now if I walk around in front of the camera getting ready for the meeting, could some Chinese tech guy potentially have access to that feed/video of me walking around?

I guess your autocorrect changed that from wanking?

Funny Walking and wanking, now that would require skills. Only a running wanker could top that?


Anyway, I am safe as I was only walking around in a leather thong

Don't know where you saw that.
They tried to warn him but couldn't. Read carefully.
Reread, poor comprehension indeed.

Taking a dive into conspiracy theories, what if someone else connected started his video session? Company laptops have lots of software that allow remote control. In my job laptop i have to click a button to give control to IT. Not sure if it's only a placebo button.

Re: Zoom etiquette

All my cameras stay pointed up like an erect....

My camera has an arm thing, I make it face the ceiling when not actively in use for a meeting. Also, when active, it lights up. I would have to be orgasmically blind to not notice the light

if you were "orgasmically blind", they would be missing the money shot anyway

Covered in what? On second thoughts, don't answer that.

Re: Zoom etiquette

I expect 2021 summary to be even funnier, as there is such a thing as "Zoom fatigue"...

Re: Zoom etiquette

My embarrassing moment happened last Friday morning on a VC. I was waiting to present and just before my turn I took a gulp of coffee to lubricate the ol vocal chords. It went down the wrong way and I spluttered it all over the keyboard, screen and camera. Now all they could see and hear was an amorphous blob through the drops of coffee having a coughing fit and grasping at tissues. Instinctively I flipped the laptop upside-down to draw the liquid out of the keyboard and into the tissues before it caused any further damage.

Later one of my colleagues described it as the most violent 20 seconds of video chat he's ever seen
