How's it going? Still hanging on?
Same 'ol here. Still working from home, with no sign of that changing. Our office is an older building in an area where people want to put "mid-rises." We found out like the day before the pandemic that our landlord sold and the buyer was finishing the details on buying the building next door (the other side had already been transformed in the past 10 years and 10 years before that across the street had been, so no real surprise). The past couple months they've given us reduced rent, and my boss says if they raise it, we'll just move out. I don't have an issue with that, my equipment here is much better anyway.
Speaking of, I realized that my computer only had 8gb ram. it maxes at 32, and since that 8gb was 2x4, I just got 2x8 more so it's at 24gb now Grin I honestly never noticed it but since I don't have band stuff, or shows, and my freelance is winding down, I've resumed a video game or two and some were ram intensive.

We're starting to open up here a bit now. Although our planned vacation to Denmark has been canceled. We're working on rebooking everything for late summer. Hopefully that will work out.
Yeah, it's a bit confusing what's open and what the "rules" are now. Bars can be open, but everyone has to sit, no one is allowed to go to the bar and the bartender brings drinks. How that pertains to venues is uncertain. We had a show May 30th that we thought was happening, but has been postponed till who knows when. We have one on the books for June 6th, waiting to hear from the venue, and supposedly just booked one for June 12th... we shall see.


At least we are able to socialize a bit now. Last Sunday we visited some friends. Spent the afternoon in their garden with appropriate distances. It was nice. The husband was saying that it's difficult for his band since they can't play together. They try to talk once a week though zoom or skype.
One of my bands has gotten together once (on the 14th) and the other one has gotten together 3 or 4 times. Other than that, and a once or twice a week visit from a ladyfriend, it's just been me & the cats Another Tounge I did go to church for mothers day :o (was masked up for that, it's a tiny church even when everyone is in attendance, might have been 20 people there at the time).


Hope everything is good on your end.
Thanks, same to ya!

Beginning my 5th week of working from home. I can honestly say I'm not excited, but after discussing things with my boss, it seems that we are going to do a phased return to the office starting likely next month. Since I have blood pressure issues and asthma I'm likely one of the last to return to working from the office. While I'm actually more productive programming at home, I'm also losing out on the social contact with my co-workers.

How's it going for you?
We're still at home till further notice. I miss band practice and am more than willing to go if my other members would agree...

I need more eggs.
You should start a garden

So I've been working from home this week. My boss sent us home last Friday to do home office. Now the Bavarian government is locking things down. Only grocery stores, banks, and doctors offices are remaining open. We've all been told to stay home unless we really need to go out.

That's where it stands for us now. How is it for you?
Pretty much the same here... Got told Monday to take what I need to work from home (using Teamviewer for something I have to have access to my work pc for, backing up logs & deleting old ones since the hard drive stays at near capacity... ), most everything is shut down, restaurants are take out/delivery only. They are allowed to takeout/deliver alcohol now, which was a no no before. There are rumors of "marshal law" which I assume will just be the "Only grocery stores, banks, and doctors offices are remaining open" you mentioned. Supposedly starting Sunday. We shall see I guess.

Grocery stores are hit or miss depending on what you need, I might make another run in a bit when I go pick up food.

Be safe!!

So how's the insanity on your side of the pond?

People here are starting to get a little odd with the buying of things.

We're not too bad here technically. At this time my family isn't in direct danger. We were beginning to build up a buffer on things before everyone else so we're doing ok with that.

At work we are all prepared to work from home if needed. We'll see how it goes.
Today is peak insanity, the rodeo cancelled (no tears from me) and the mayor has declared "state of emergency." I haven't really been to any stores but I've heard you can't get toilet paper or hand sanitizer anywhere laugh1
Even band practice got cancelled Another Tounge

Y'all stay well over there!

Well his grade was good. Basically B's which I can be happy with Grin
Awesome! yay


YouTube keeps telling me that your or your band's channel has updated, but when I look there's nothing new posted. YouTube is weird.
Yeah, I think sites like that must do that to get you to generate ad revenue... No updates lately (I'm bad at being a social media marketer, maybe I should look into hiring one)


So the project I've been involved with for the last year or so finally went live this week. There have been few problems and both the customer and my boss are happy Grin. My project manager came by to tell me he's going to arrange the celebration for the go live. Which honestly I wish we would do here so I don't have to travel again Grin
Congrats!


How's things going on your end?
Some 'ol stuff here...
Landlord did paint the inside of the cabinets white and I haven't had anymore unwanted visitors...
My eldest cat (16.5yrs) had to switch to prescription wet food, so I went from filling a gravity feeder once a month, to dishing out food a few times a day (and have to pick up after they eat or it gets hard)...
Starting to feel a bit more unpacked, but I'm in the "I can't do this till i do that, I can't do that till I do this other thing, and I just don't feel like doing it" lol... managed to empty a couple more boxes though so it's getting there. (laundry drop off is awesome.)
