@bugcounter the “host has not yet joined” music was my fave part of the call! #jammin@bugcounter [Sound of absolute despair]@bugcounter You have no idea. Literally no idea. USDA/NIFA/AFRI webinar. 70+ participants. No Q&A but all phone lines live. Brutal.You may've been in the stands for the Steelers 1972 Immaculate Reception but I was just on the worst conference call of all time. So there!Examining the predictive utility of extended theory of planned behavior model for individual safe food-handling http://t.co/6I3UJkQfTs@JohnNCoupland If only!@JohnNCoupland Current status: feedback maelstrom.@JohnNCoupland You are wise. I agreed to take the hit and call in on behalf of a couple others, so I'm stuck here in this wasteland.@JohnNCoupland Yep, same call, and no, not really. OMG this is chaos. My ears are full of hurricane winds and keyboard clicks.On a webinar/conference call for 70+ ppl & they didn't turn off call-in beep or mute participants.
