no mandatory wfh yet north of the border in vancouver. wouldn't mind if there's a week or two of it though. roll out of bed at 9am, log into jabber, schedule some power naps throughout the day as "meetings"

Which monitor did you get? I've been going down the 27" 1440 144hz rabbit hole and it seems everything is sold out. Probably due to supply chain poo poo.

WFH in seattle area as well. mgmt OK'd people coming in and taking their good work monitors home so i'll probably do that tomorrow. Except none of them have stands and I really don't want to bring that loving mount home....hmm

usb-c is good for phones but it sucks rear end for things like that and docks cause the cable gauges tend to be too thick for the tiny connector. they should have made it either magnetic or given it a latch like display port has.

maybe Microsoft should have made the surface connector non-proprietary. it worked pretty well but it was stupid to have to carry it around instead of something standardized.

we have a guy at work that started to complain to our contract HR department (we donít really have one, we just pay them to do bullshit clerical work) of people coming in and sneezing. an intern got an email scolding her but as the most senior (and first) employee Iím immune to that.

Iíve been faking a cough for a few days now and have been using ďnot now I feel like poo pooĒ as an excuse to blow him off when he asks stuff. I can tell itís driving him nuts.

it had nothing to do with a beer company.

Wuhan flu is bad because loving morons started not going to asian owned businesses, also it's not a flu
"coronavirus" is bad because that's like calling it "a windows" when tech support asks your OS
ncov 2019 was okay
Covid 19 is a good name. Unique and easy to understand.
