    We're actually not using the video it's the audio that has been the issue. 2nd week in a row at least 2 of the 6 on the call had to log in twice, once with computer so they can see the shared screen, and once with the phone to get audio. We pushed our meeting back 30 minutes and finally got it working but even then 2 people were logged in twice.

    We used to use Zoom but the company that bought us out uses Web Ex so we're migrating over. it's not a fair comparison, Zoom worked flawlessly but that was before the pandemic, obviously traffic is WAY up on these services now

    At a press briefing a day earlier, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, told reporters, "We now have 370,000 tests that have been done. The majority of those -- over 220,000 in the last eight days, which, those of you who have been tracking the South Korea numbers, put us equivalent to what they did in eight weeks that we did in eight days."

    IT actually installed that last week. Most of us had to reboot a few times when it first installed but now it's there, but none of us are using it.

    I should be fair, we're still being integrated from my old company, to the company that bought us, some of these issues may be integration related and not the fault of Web Ex.

    Teams or Slack or not the same thing as WebEx

    You are just talking and conferences, there is a LOT more to teams and Slack

    So anybody have any idea how much the Feds spent on that stupid card we're getting in the mailbox now that has Trumps advice on dealing with COVID 19? I looked at teh front, saw it was stuff i'd been seeing for weeks now, and put it in the recycle bin.

    Seems way too late.

    Oh, I know he values money over people. (I worked for one the idiot's casinos back in the late 90s.) I just think it will be a lot harder for him to justify saving the economy if the death rate jumps exponentially.

    And I agree that the states will rebel, especially those with high incidents of the virus.

    He has to do it now before more people start dying.

    That's some Trump logic right there.

    He does that now, and in 2-6 weeks I bet most major cities that follow his advice will see an explosion in cases. TV footage with people lying on a hospital floor unable to get treatment. Military truck taking away the dead. Mass graves.

    As mentioned I know people who live in New Orleans, apparently lots of speculation that there's a link between their virus explosion, Mardi Gras, and maybe even NY. Apparently lots of foreign visitors that wind up at Mardi Gras schedule their travels so they can spend a night or 2 in NYC before heading to Mardi Gras. Apparently lots of travel packages in Asian countries do it that way. They are wondering if this year lots of people came from Asia to NYC, and then on to Mardi Gras and that's why New Orleans suddenly has such a huge problem. Mardi Gras itself would have been bad enough, but add in the other angle and it's really bad
