What?  :D Why tp4 is shouting? What does cray cray mean?

Cray cray is common speak for 'crazy' - I refer you to this posts from last month where I said my son was going back to nursery, haha:

My son will be back at nursery tomorrow after bugging us at home while we try and work for the last two days.

My god man, did you not read the n00s..  / outside = max dangerous


Also, damn - sharing that quote means that my son has only been back for two weeks, not a month - why does time feel like it's both going slowly and quickly at the same time?!

It is official as of the last few days, we're going to a mostly in-person hybrid model where half of those not enrolled in a virtual option will attend half of the week, and the other half the other half of the week. Only something like 23% of students signed up for the hybrid model, so we're still talking just under 40% room capacity. They're normally packed in there like sardines, there's no way at all that proper social distancing can be maintained like that even if they teleported into their seats for each class ... so I fail to see how this model helps at all besides making the outbreak affect a slightly smaller number once it does happen. At least we're mandating all staff and students wear masks. I'm sure that that, on its own, will go great.

Social distancing is a bit of a -Hopeless- situation anyway.  The droplets studies have indicated 30 feet MINIMUM is required indoors for social distancing to be effective.

They've stuck with the 6 feet number fed to the press because 30 feet is simply undoable, and 6 feet is better than nothing.

Zoom is a joke.

Which makes it really sad that MS had all this time to get Teams and Skype working well and missed the boat (as did Apple and Facebook and...).
Zoom was/is no better than any of them.

I feel like most people using Teams are ones that already have a full Azure tenant with all the bells and whistles, so it wouldn’t have made much difference. Sure, we had to wait for them to roll out larger numbers of participants, etc, but they got there eventually,

Considering the lead they had before this, they should have been ready from day one.

And it wasn't just them, Asus had been REMOVING web cams from their laptops.
It was bad enough we're still using the same crap web cams we were a decade ago while cell phones got camera upgrade after camera upgrade.

Some of these companies should be kicking themselves.

The camera thing is because laptop to laptop blows up the face focus, while many peeps arn't the most physically attractive.  They don't want the added pressure of High resolution capture of their less flattering moments.

Skin texture is a huge area of criticism and self-criticism for women.   They've done alot of focus tests on this and decided to keep to 720p for laptops. The low pixel count blurs out the picture.

Cost shouldn't be one of the factors given how expensive some of the top models are.

There are ways around this though, like samsung's beautyface filters.  But maybe that takes alot of CPU power and has problem with windows software integration ?

University of Alabama had 500 last Wed., in less than a week it went over 1000.

Don't forget Sturgis (motorcycle festival) ended Sunday before last (the 16th), 250k in attendance from around the country and no one wore masks. Already over 100 cases directly attributed.
