    You're seeing faces?
    We've been told not to do this via synchronous meetings.
    I look up people's faces on the class list when they e-mail, if I don't already recognize their name. I'm considering a very, very, very optional video call Sunday night if it looks like our equipment can handle it.

    I talked with Mediacom last night about the upgrade. They hung up while I went to get some info. I did more research and saw again how quickly it would blow up in our face, so it's time to just truck on by.

    I think it's going to be short introductory videos for context, post the slides that would have happened, along with notes on that notes page, and some links to relevant videos, since links I can do, and uploading I cannot.

    Ok, so persons who are greasy and slimy, but not slimy greasers (nor greasy slimers nor Federal gov employees). Important distinction I guess. Lesson learned!

    Woke up yesterday with sharp pain on the side of my foot right at my big toe knuckle. No trauma there recently so kind of confusing. May just need to chop it off.

    There's YouTube Kids.

    Also some kid yoga ones that are really good.
    Music stuff tended to be good.

    I've had stuff like that and it's amazing what role shoe tread, having a bad arch, hip strength etc. can play in something so small.

    Thank you for distinguishing that Fed Gov employees are not greasy and slimy. We fall into one of two categories. 1. Lazy and incompetent 2. Corrupt

    Pornhub could be considered educational depending upon what you are teaching.

    I'm running it more like a flipped classroom.
    Normal class meeting times are when I am available to answer questions or help them work through problems.

    My class sizes are quite reasonable. My class sizes run between 18 to 23 people per course. I could potentially host everyone on at one time, but my concern with the student populations I work with is availability, particularly if they are in a critical job (healthcare, grocery jobs, etc.).
