Not sure why that came out upside down! I'm not in Australia.


I thought you were showing off!

Yes I am, showing off my shortcomings on how to operate a computer. How am I doing Ian?


Better than I could.

Being on HomeOffice - unfortunately it has some serious flaws if you are actually forced to work "full speed" with 5yo kid and wife locked in a flat!

So mostly the routine goes like this:
breakfast-kid-work-kid-wife-lunch-work-wife-coffee-kid-work-dinner-shower-kid-work-wife-sleep-ohmygoditsmorningalready!

My wife's work was shut down, and my youngest son's college. My work hasn't been affected to this point, because we're a small office and nearly all work is done electronically. That may change soon, as ripple effects will spread in all kinds of unexpected ways. For instance, what if the company that prints the magazine shuts down? What if all printers shut down for a time? Etc. x 5,000.

Since we live in a semi-rural area, and since most of my favorite leisure activity is reading and outdoors activities, I'm able to do a lot of things that I enjoy. I'm doing a lot of outdoors things (running, hiking, mountain biking, birding) and a lot of reading. But my sideline teaching has been eliminated. And our church, where we spend much time and have many friends, is closed.

In our area, and I presume nearly everywhere, there's a sense of everyone in this together, whether we're affected immensely or not at all.

Catching up on some classic movies with the kids. Last night was the 4K version of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". The movie was remarkably ahead of its time.

We also took the dog out for a 3.1 mile walk. Lots of other neighborhood dog walkers out there to wave at from the other side of the street.

I've started two(!) books simultaneously. Re-reading "Fire in the Sky" (the SoPac air war and its origins) and the new "Tower of Skulls", about the Asian conflict 1927-1942. The juxtaposition of the Chinese Nationalists (Chang Kai-Chek) with the communists (Mao Zedong) and their rise amidst a chaotic China is interesting.

Satying at home, I won't catch coronavirus but for sure I'll die because of the damages I'm producing to my liver...


Guys, an advice: when you stockpile, just take a lot of alcohol. You'll consume it more than usual.

Like every normal working day, in the field, today in Clarksville TN. I'm the photojournalist with the camera, Nick the reporter is holding my mic boom as we keep our distance. Normally I would pin a wireless lavalier microphone on the person being interviewed but not any more. We drove up from Nashville in separate cars to also keep our distance.

When we were done shooting the story we drove to a nearby McDonalds(dining room closed). In the parking lot Nick logged the interviews and wrote the 5&6 packages in his pickup truck. I then stuck a mic in his truck and he voiced the two pkgs into my camera. I then drove home to Brentwood where I edited on my station issued laptop. Two weeks ago we would of driven together in my newscar and returned to the station in Nashville to write and edit our stories. Today I never went in the TV station. News staff is practicing doing the news not going into the building in case the virus gets inside and the building needs a deep clean for a couple of days.

Looks like they are sewing fashionable facemasks. About time! The Taliban could take a lesson from that ...

They are! That woman is a force. She is using her driveway to take donations of fabric where she and some volunteers sort out the non-pure cotton items. They then deliver the %100 cotton fabric items to people who sew the stuff into masks at home. All volunteers trying to help nearby hospitals that have run out of masks.

I just downloaded every new scenario, mod and all the AI updates, organized them into folders and then updated my game using the JSGME software. The latter makes it really easy to mod your game without overwriting files

Been wanting to do this for a few years!

I should probably play an email campaign vs opponent as opposed to AI that intend to play. Given all the free time I have now.....

Who's six feet are you trying to keep apart? Is that three people or one foot from each of six people? What sort of equipment have you been provided with for this task? How far apart must these feet be? Over what time period do they need to be kept separated? Please keep us updated in your quest.
