    #'s first lecture (at a different #) is this evening, at the same time as one of mine. Now to test if two instances of # Collaborate can run off a single retail # connection.

    This evening's # Collaborate lecture is over. It's so unnervingly jarring to try shouting into the void of the world's most lag-tastic VoIP app; a conference call that can't handle more than one open mic at a time. Bring back tin cans and string! #

    Blimey. A new post on # says "I look forward to reading your contributions", from a member of # academic staff who died last year. The ultimate in contingent labour. #

    Preparing for a # Collaborate lecture to fall into the usual ed-tech shambles. The upside of distance # is that nobody can see how much you're drinking. Myself aside, I can't see how the lecturers would cope otherwise.

    Hitting the # wall. Just cannot bring myself to sit through a recording of yet another shambolic, disjointed # Collaborate tutorial.

    At the end of day four with no computer but my 800px wide #, I am so grateful for web developers who go the fluid width extra mile. And the people responsible for # and # can go to hell. # #

    Like a fool, tried to use # Collaborate again. Same old memory leak issue, turned it off and on again as usual, got "Conference locked." Fine, I can take a hint. #

    Anybody who has to work with moving-target proprietary APIs has my sympathy, but # says a fix for their # widget won't be ready till next year! What takes that long? #

    If you can't beat them, buy them. # is buying up # hosting/consulting firms. #

    @mjd Well it is good to know that the people behind # can still spark such devotion from the -hostages forced to- _students that_ use their products.

    @lnxw48 # Collaborate is a # app that brings extra latency to VoIP, plus the ability to communicate through the medium of pink 50pt Comic Sans & clipart. A nightmare.

    @mjd I had to use # for a few classes at the local college 10+ years ago. It was horrid and anti-student then. I cannot imagine what even worse kind of beast it became.

    Last week, I had a problem with # Collaborate crashing. Now I have the problem of it not crashing before I lose patience with the whole exercise.

    Got a unit that's all group work. Via # BBS. How does one get over the "there's no way this won't suck" hurdle? #

    Another afternoon of # Collaborate tech fail, then off to the supermarket with a shopping list & no idea whether I have the money to cover it. # is getting me down again.

    Sitting waiting for an online exam that was supposed to be available 20 minutes ago. Looks like the tutor has stuffed up the # access control settings and gone home for the day. #
