So... for remote teaching, I am looking for more skype and zoom alternatives. For obvious reasons, I don't want to use Zoom and Skype is also not exactly a favorite.

Jitsi Meet works most of the time, but yesterday I had one student who couldn't get it to work on their mobile device.

What I need:
* something that lets me choose which camera/mic I'm using
* ideally works web browser-based
* screen sharing.

A Thread on Being in April and How You Can Help

Awareness makes April a hard month for autistic folks. A lot of autistic folks take a break from social media in April just to avoid it.

This year is worse. Social distancing and shelter-in-place affect us too. We may be more affected because of how difficult change is for us.

A social media breakh this April will be impossible for many of us.

Please read this. Learn how to make this month easier for us.

Reminder: moisturize your hands last thing before going to bed tonight!

With all the extra hand washing right now you will likely need it. And doing it over night is great because it gets to sink in properly and not get washed off.

You can use oil, lotion or a balm.

Quoting this excerpt because it's important:

"Learn about resistance with indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time. You don’t help at all by being sad and without energy. It helps if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world. You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation. This is a resistance strategy."

I wonder if there are any teams that I could join. I don't have strong hardware or much time where I can let the client crunch ahead on full steam, but still, I guess every bit helps?

tfw you want to knit, but then the cat sits on your yarn in a way that traps the yarn and you can't get it out until cat leaves.
