I think I've only used it in jest with friends. I feel kind of guilty about using it, unless it's directed at @VeloClone or @BCClone because those two actually deserve it (and I know they won't be offended by it).

I suppose that I do "JLH" bomb threads when I find that somebody posts too many comments that I find to be a bit ridiculous. I also suppose that isn't really all that respectful.

One of the final Adventures in Adjuncting anecdotes: I went ahead with Drake's idea to help a couple students with incompletes, with their idea "We don't think we'll lock you out of the systems quickly."

Stuff is due May 31st. Except for e-mail and Blackboard, I'm locked out of everything, including the spot to update incompletes.
Turns out they didn't actually check to make sure whether we could update things if this happened, so I'm pretty proud of all that communicative effort.

Deserve it? Heck, I should probably have the dumb box as my avatar...

I like the fact that in teams you can mute other people. I will viciously do that during some calls.
I thought you could only do that if you set up the meeting. Good to know. I will definitely use this when during the middle of a meeting people take a phone call or talk to someone who came into their office while their mic is open.

There is nothing wrong with a JLH bomb.

Didn’t see it because it was gone before I got to the right window, but DH saw a fox in our backyard. There are plenty in parts of Ames, but no reports from around here until now.
Come back and have all the rabbits you want, please!

Fox? Otherwise I'm confused what is broken and why Ames has parts but not your area.
