We are healthy and happy, though getting around at the moment is a pain and the Online Access Centre has been forced to shut temporarily. Fortunately the staff are eligible for a JobKeeper subsidy that covers 80% of their wages while we are closed.

All well here, staying home a lot more.

I've worked from home for years, business as usual for me.

<p>Everyone good here.</p><p><br></p><p>I work in distribution and the wife works IT so she's extra busy working with abnormally high remote workforce and my work is........ the zombie apocalypse. It is utterly insane right now. There are only so many loading docks on warehouses- we simply can't move enough product fast enough. Got to the point where they just gave my department a literal blank check for labor and told me everyone is now allowed to work 168 hours a week(even salaried positions are currently being paid "time and a half" over 40 hours and getting an extra couple hundred bucks a week bonus)- but it doesn't change the physical realities of our dimension(we are up ~100-140% YoY so nobody is angry with us).</p><p><br></p><p>Stores that are closed should be raring to go when they reopen which I hope is near, maybe they can stop spending all their money at my locations(all of which are essential so still open).</p><p><br></p><p>Also, those that can, try and do what you can to keep the local businesses and their employees out of the poor house. Ordering out way more than normal to try and make sure these people aren't starving. A lot of people who normally do this can't afford to right now, so those of us that can please try and help those that can still work but may be facing dire financial straits anyway. Also, building a chunk of cash to go blow at some places of business when they reopen as well.</p>

Quote:In a letter addressed to employees, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang promised that the COVID-19 crisis will not cause job-losses anywhere along the company's regular payroll. Instead, the company will expedite pay-raises, the CEO's letter reads. Jen Hsun stressed the importance for NVIDIA's 13,775-strong workforce to remain home and safe. The letter comes in the wake of industry-wide fears of job losses, which NVIDIA's workforce isn't immune from.

You know where the pay raises really came from, right?

Not from Jensen's generosity but from price gouging consumers with Pascal and Turing video cards, that where!

Little wonder Jensen can afford pay raises for all employees!

Quote:As the Coronavirus spread and started to clearly become a pandemic, many tech shows were being canceled. However, TAITRA wasn't giving much clarity about Computex, and with the proposed date edging ever closer many vendors were left asking for clarity. The show was consequently moved to September the next day. However, Computex 2020 has now been canceled.

Republican Governor Holcomb opened the state this past Friday June 12th but the Democrat Mayor Hogsett is keeping the City of Indianapolis locked down till at least next Friday June 19th.

We're open in WI with some stores making people wear masks.

I'm supposed to be at Niagara Falls at the Sheraton right in front of the Falls this week, but the Canadian border is closed to non essential travel.

So I'm in Northern WI at a cabin on a lake.

Pretty tired of the Covid.
