Zoom fun in these times

Went drinking with my racing buddies and spousal units tonight. So far, Zoom seems to be good. You just can't throw the invitations wide open or the spammers can break in but it was good. Shared laughs about motorcycle racing and about being confined to quarters.

I haven't (yet) heard any cautions about using zoom except to use common sense but I'm cautiously paranoid. Seems to be a good thing.

In this case I think Z00m is like Skype.

We’ve been using it for all our office/client meetings since the shutin. Seems to be working OK so far.

We are using it as well in my ham club. A work project with an out of state vendor is also conducted with Zoom. Great connections for us in both cases.

Never heard of it before all this sh!t started, now I’ve gotten four or five demands to start using it.

Not going to install it on my fone because I read their privacy policies.
But I’m weird.

It’s great fun if you run the “talking asshole” filter

I zoom on pornhub. It's like a virtual orgy.

My wife was on it for quite a while yesterday with her sisters and some of the adult nieces. Thankfully we haven't downsized yet.
