I guess I sort of take that for granted, I do them all on my company provided PC :lolol: You can do Teams on iPhone, if you put it on a stand or something, it would probably work fine.

Had to buy a windows laptop today for interviews on Microsoft Teams. Last computer I bought was a $180 chromebook a few years ago. Works great for internet browsing, though small. Before that was 10 years ago, my MBP that still works fine, but has been abandoned by both Apple and Microsoft due to a...

I'm digging the adoption of dece around here.

I haven't washed the 328i since I acquired it :mahman: I would like to, but just don't have a ton of time for such things. If it's wash my car or ride my bike, the latter is generally going to win.

Interesting read, sounds like those of us that are vaccinated are still probably relatively safe against acquiring Delta and even moreso being hospitalized by it.

The sonos stuff seems nice, but sweet jesus is it expensive?! I looked into their amps for this whole home audio solution. $650 each is insane. Although I may get the Arc for the soundbar for the living room? It's $750, but that's more reasonable for what you get at least. Yeah :iono: if it's reall...

I wish Yamaha had those products out when I started buying Sonos. At the time, it was either Sonos or shitty glitchy Google cast speakers.

My experience living in FL was basically just like CA as well, all 90+ MPH on freeways all the time, nothing happens either.

I'm going to see if I can wiggle myself into a lesser fine if i can, otherwise it is what it is at this point.
Might be worth grabbing up one of those traffic lawyers to see if they can reduce, I think around here they only run a few hunnit often times.

I have Yamaha MusicCast products, which is a competitor to Sonos. My company is a distributor for Sonos and they are a bunch of fuckfaces, so I hate them, but the products are good (Yamaha is equivalent). One cool thing with Yamaha is that in addition to speakers and sound bars, they have receivers...

No, we were instructed to upload our vax cards to the HR software if we want to not wear masks in the office. It looks like I'm the only one on our team who has done so but no one is wearing masks still and I'm now working in the office with them two days a week. That's some shit HR system IMO. The...

Man... as mentioned earlier, I was a bit concerned coming into the office with the anti-vax folks. Well, my Director (based in SF) just reached out and was like "you are one of the few that has uploaded your vax card, so if you don't feel comfortable going in, that's fine". Nice of him to...
