I don't think I ever did a proper #introductions. I'm a 34yo British bloke, married to a wonderful woman and we have a 14 day old baby boy, a 9yo pupper and a 5yo cat. I'm a Network engineer scratching my way further into network security. I've been been on the Fediverse since identi.ca ran on Laconica (a long time ago). I'm a licenced #hamradio op and I dabble in hobby electronics and photography. I am also slowly learning German and getting into gardening to keep these bones moving.
Joined my NHS worker wife at Tesco's NHS-only hour. Place was packed to the point they had to turn people away because it was too full for fire regs. We had an hour to shop but they didn't think to relax Sunday trading laws, so for half an hour hundreds of v.high exposure critical workers are packed together in stationary queues to the back of the shop. I worry now this half-baked idea could end up taking out the NHS next week when all their staff come down with #COVID19 at the same time.
I see lots of good informational posts on covid nowadays. But many of them I cannot boost.
Lots of folks are controlling their information intake on covid. My instance, and many others, requires CWs for anything related to covid or coronavirus.
Please consider CWing your informational posts.
We already had one email from a concerned customer about whether our firewalls are patched against coronavirus. That's quite a species leap. #covid19
Checked if we had spare toilet rolls in case we struggle to find any in the shops. Turns out we have been stockpiling them for some time #covid19
Shall I see you all down the Winchester then? #covid19
About 10 years ago I suffered a major PEBCAK error and lost all my digital photos. I managed to recover from various ad-hoc backups everything except for 2004. I've just found a few more early backups from 2005 and I've decided that photos from 2004 just didn't exist, which given it was a pretty awful year in my life is not really a bad thing. At least that event forced me to learn proper backup methods for next time
Slept right through #brexit phase one finishing, I'm a very light sleeper and even the Chinese New year fireworks were enough to wake me. Which is pretty niche in my area. I can only presume nobody bothered to be up celebrating.
