lol someone at czi down the street here in redwood city got the virus and now my company is going to allow work from home, which the ceo is generally opposed to. gives us a chance to prove that we can wfh and still get all the necessary poo poo done. so i guess this virus has a silver lining, i mean not for the people who get sick, but like, for me

also i am "not allowed" to use my far superior personal laptop to vpn in, they only want company computers on the company network. unless your computer is a phone, then it can be on the network and it's fine. i tried to convince IT that this didn't make sense, i could have jailbroken my phone and have root and be doing god knows what on your network, but they aren't buying it

i can't tell if people are panicking here in the bay area or not. like, most of the tech employers are having people work from home, so the traffic is much lighter, but everyone who is doing actual work seems to still be doing it. construction across the street still going, coffee shops are open and have people, restaurants are open, grocery stores have normal stock of most things except hand sanitizer, people are chatting in groups and out walking their dogs like it ain't no thing

they cancelled the loving nba though that has to mean something

like this will pass, if you watch the news it is bad but we all knew it was going to be bad so why freak out even more? it doesn't help anything to pull your own hair out, just stay inside and wash your hands and do what the officials say, it is all you can do, this is outside of your control like the weather

i went to a range once and shot pistols with a coworker who was into that. he had a few different ones including like a .40 caliber. i had never even held a gun before so i expected to be terrible at shooting, probably mess up my forearm from the recoil, etc. but instead the main thing i remember is how loving EASY it was. like i'm sure competitive target shooting is difficult, but just pulling the trigger and hitting the paper target was so easy a caveman could do it. i couldn't get the thought out of my head, "wow if i had one of these and i needed to kill someone, it would be absolutely no problem at all"

e: irl when nervous i'm sure you miss all the time and paper targets don't shoot back etc.

so basically the same poo poo i do normally anyway. i just can't go to restaurants so i'm probably losing weight as a bonus! sitting inside with all social interactions mediated through computer is how i grew up and became a professional computer toucher, i was born for this poo poo, bring it on

i ordered some bbq from a restaurant over the weekend and they had great deals like 25% off all food, and they would sell you their cocktails premixed in a quart or pint container and those were like 65% off, plus discounts on whole bottles, etc.

also judging by all these car commercials, car dealerships are currently like "no interest, no payments for 6 months, we will bring the car to you and suck your dick on delivery" so i guess if you want to buy things, now is a good time

they made the weed stores in santa clara county medical-only, which is really stupid because everyone who had a rec let it expire because you don't need it anymore. (you used to have to pay a doctor $50 every year to renew.) so basically those dispensaries are just shut down, because santa clara county officials are anti-weed idiots. delivery services still going strong here in san mateo county, but i picked up an ounce just in case they decide to gently caress with that too

the ballot in california for a major position like senate or governor or president has a dozen names of candidates from random rear end political parties that most people have never heard of. they don't get any meaningful amount of votes. millions of californians who would probably struggle to fill in a scantron have somehow trained themselves to scan through all those names, find the one that says DEMOCRATIC next to it, and fill in that box. i seriously doubt that a change to ranked-choice voting would result in any immediate change beyond just putting 1 in the same box

they actually banned leaf blowers in residential palo alto but it's not enforced. at least you can come outside shaking a printout of the ordinance at the gardener who probably barely speaks english. also they're exempt if the blower is electric. that does at least avoid the awful two stroke motor noise but it still sounds like a leaf blower
