I would have written it shorter, but I didn't have the time
Me: ah yes, another course where the main goal is to write an essay. I can safely postpone efforting until the deadline looms closer

1) what's a good webcam that gets the job done, without too much in the way of preparatory work, bells and/or whistles?

people give you funny looks
