Worse condition #retrocomputing - found at the side of the road gently rusting; a terminal of sometype, the only identification I can see is a PAL with a label that says 'Qantel'; there's a whole 68008 system in there!
I've just received a 2.5kg bag of 80% cocoa solid #chocolate callets (via Amazon); pro cooking chocolate - should get me through. It's fun when the chocolate vendor has a troubleshooting page:
"So we took a big tube. We filled it with air. And then we actuated the robot not by pumping air in and out, but by having these little robots that essentially drive along the tube changing its shape." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqgbLb8m77U
They finally got to it and it looks like were showing up a little in growth % to me; I do hope so.
Just received 5l bottles of handsoap from a catering supplier; https://www.nisbets.co.uk/
(and washing up liquid and random bits)

Just ordered a 2.5kg bag of 80% #chocolate couverture from Amazon. That might be enough to survive the apocalypse.
(I've got one Asda slot booked for the 31st, nowhere else has slots; Sainsburys might but it's decided to only serve old/vulnerable, and it hasn't put me in that pot - but I am isolating because of my 70+ year old parents, there's a number to call but it's unreachable...sigh)
I'd really hoped -- expected, really, as the linked article (parent) begins, that we would have seen a low-side departure from projection by now. We've not.
There's some faint hope: the US has accellerated testing tremendously, meaning "confirmed cases" growth doubtless reflects this. And deaths HAVE lagged projection, now by 5 days.
But informed government sources conceed actual inections are large multiples of confirmed, and that growth exceeds testing capacity.
It looks bad.
