So I want to either donate time or money in the KC community. Is this where we should post that stuff or do we need a separate philanthropy thread?

If you want to help, blood donations are needed rn. This goes for everyone else, too.

Yes this is much needed too. I need to clean myself up first but I have donated blood for years, not recently tho

I looked at donating blood and all the appointments were full. Lots of bored salaried people in the Bay I guess

Good one.  I'm scheduling myself for next week.  Trying to figure out what night I want to drink and get a cheap buzz.

Didn't know such a thing existed. Also my company uses Vonage so we get Amazon Chime for free. We have one person who insists on using the free version of zoom, which is amazingly stupid and maddening.

We have Microsoft Teams work happy hours every single day. Today we have two (2). It’s getting ridiculous.

My company recently started using Microsoft Teams.  I think all you can do is blur your background?  The gif selection has been scrubbed to mostly PG stuff, although I did send a gif from American Psycho that was questionable at best.  lmao

Just had my first work disagreement over Skype for biz. I won the argument and I think we’re all good, but it was a little more tense than I think it would’ve been because our whole faces were up on the screen.

I enjoy them occasionally but it’s getting out of hand. But no, not required.
