Pumpkin spice season - yay or nah?
The season? Yay! The pumpkin spice? I'll leave it for someone else.
Yay! But only in moderation. The pumpkin spice trend is getting out of hand! ;-)
It's nearly bedtime here in the UK, so I won't hear about the US Presidential debate until tomorrow morning; will you be watching?
I ended up watching most of it. Don't feel the need to watch the next two
Only saw some summaries. Man, I wish there would be people with some dignity up there.
"Be nice to people on the way up; because you just might meet them on the way down." What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
"Know your future self" Not necessarily the best advice ever but one that becomes more and more relevant with age.
"Think before you speak." A platitude that is well-worth understanding.
"Write code as if the one who takes over is a psychopath who knows your address."
My neck is so sore. My WFH set up is sub par at best...
My neck pains at work usually relate to tension in my back. A good chair makes a difference. Even a yoga ball.
Six months since lockdown started here. We have probably got at least six more months of restrictions. How about you?
Same and same. 6 months is my optimistic guess. If there was money riding on it, my bet is 9 months.
Just a bit over six months for us. That's what makes it difficult: we don't know for how much longer this will go on.
Total lockdown during 4 months, after, a summer with restrictions but free to move anywhere and since 3 weeks, lockdown for social activities (sport, restaurants, bars,...) but you're free to work. I don't understand the way of political decisions in France

The British Prime Minister has announced that the second wave of COVID-19 is coming. I had hoped we had more time before it came back. Further restrictions, including local lockdowns are inevitable.
Are cases sharply rising again?
I watched the documentary "13th" four days ago and I'm still processing it. Mass incarceration is not good for society and it is not a deterrent; so it really is just a business opportunity for corporations. Dreadful.
Of all the things to make a business out of, prisons are the worst (as well as health care)
Going to bed early is an act of self-care, isn't it? Good night!
It definitely. I'll do the same actually! Good night to you :)
I hope State-side friend enjoyed the long weekend. No more holidays until Christmas for us this side of the pond...
Thank you! I hope you are able to take time off work before Christmas!
