And my neighbours downstairs and to the right, both divorcees and singles, are scared and have asked me to join them to share a bottle of white wine...This is getting better and better, this lock down situation!
Apropos nothing - apparently Covid-19 isn't sexually transmitted. Maintaining the 1.5m separation however takes creativity.

Re: Vive l'apocalypse!

And another blow to our dear home office guys and galls. It seems that our Rechenzentrum doesn´t have enough licesenses for all the VPN connections and the network drives are full to capacity, our bosses have self quarantined and some stone cold idiot clicked on a link in an e-mail that was it´s self in quarantine. And now our customers are getting porn spam with a .ru ending.

Yipee!

There were 8 people. I don't think they've caused the downfall of humanity.
They can cause the downfall of the health care system and consequently many deaths.

That's the point.

Wow. Just 8 people. When there's already over 2000. Straw that broke the camel's back, I guess.

One person caused over 1000 infections in Korea and pretty much singlehandedly made the country’s countermeasures obsolete. By not following the advice given.

Well - I can't help with russian porn problem (but can I get the link?)

I know most IT vendors are giving away things for free to help support mobile working - for example:

https://blogs.cisco.com/security/cis...remote-workers

But good luck with your porn and VPN problems!

Just heard on the news that Italy has started to take respirators away from corona patients over 50. They are having to chose who lives and who dies.

Drop it, unfortunately some people don't understand and/or just don't give a shit.
