    Default Zoom meetings

    Related to me. A woman in a Zoom meeting had a connection issue. Her microphone kept cutting out. The moderator told her to leave Zoom and come back in.
    So, she stood up and walked out of the room she was in, carefully shut the door, then opened the door and came back in.
    The other participants were not kind, in between laughs.

    Considering that Zoom has that "leave meeting" button, I guess it's just not possible to be explicitly clear on "leave Zoom."

    On a serious note: if your audio is bad in a video chat, stay in the meeting, but shut off the camera. Using audio alone uses less bandwidth and often does the trick.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    That is really funny!

    Zoom has been wonderful for staying in touch with my Mom.

    Since Dad passed away in November I zoom with mom every afternoon for 15-25 minutes. Her hearing is really poor even with her hearing aids. Phone calls are very difficult, it is almost like talking to someone with dementia. But on the zoom calls she can turn up the volume on the computer and she has a blue-tooth mic that plays into her hearing aids. We can see each other and have normal conversations.

    If I am busy at work and can't squeeze in a quick call, we have happy hour together, Mom with her wine me with a beer or cocktail.

    Reminded me of this fairly old YouTube clip regarding the dial-in and enter your pin type conference calls:
