    As many of you know this is my last week of work. I resigned and am planning to retire if these headhunters don't spoil my wishes with the offiers they are coming up with.
    I had to be on a conference call a week or so ago and it was the only day I was to be home for 2 weeks and I had no interest in the call but was forced to be on it so here is how I chose to be there

    I have to do a conference call every couple of weeks-lucky for me it's done over the phone and doesn't involve any computer presentations.

    I call in, hit the "mute" button, pour me a hot cuppa, set my chair in a comfy position and grab a book. When it's my turn to talk, I unmute the phone say my piece, hit the mute button and go back to my book.[​IMG]

    The call is weekly at 0900 Mondays - it is a really good thing that we are not using web cams or they might have seen me - well lets just leave it there - LOL

    Thats how I do it to. I'll often take use of the mute button on skype and play some computer games.

    Certainly this can't be that rare. I work from home most days, and there are always 2-3 conference calls *per day*. I often am building a fire, loading a smoker, mixing sausage, whatever during them. Bluetooth is a great thing!
