Mild-mannered programmer by day...
Captain Wenworth Is that thing where proper nouns become verbs more likely where the noun has a double-o? I find I've now added 'Zooming' as a verb on top of Hoovering and Googling.

Captain Wenworth It's the family online quiz this evening - it started out as a one-off, and has now become a fortnightly staple. Honestly, I'm enjoying these way more than I thought I would.

Captain Wenworth These last few days I've felt really drained; work's been a bit intense these last couple of months. Still, at least I (currently still) have a job.

Captain Wenworth I really enjoy double checking my calculations when the testers say that the scenario's failed, only to discover that I'm getting the right result.

Captain Wenworth After a long absence, I'm listening to podcasts again. I know I'm late to it, but am finding NPR's White Lies an intriguing listen.

Kernel Not sure if I can get back into football after so much marble racing
Captain Wenworth The marble racing has been ace! I started off watching, OK, this will be silly, but... yeah, it's curiously compelling!

Captain Wenworth Just back from walking the dog through town; more shops are open, people are out and about and it feels busy, despite there probably being about 10% of the usual Sunday activity.

Kernel I wonder whether everything will feel even more busy compared to before when things become normal again.

David There is absolutely no reason to go back, unless it is to socialise.
Captain Wenworth Exactly; if anything, I've been more productive at home, and Teams gives us the ability to see/talk to others.

David I started working from home the same day too. Using my old desk, and iMac. It works well, so far. Want to invest on a standing desk, though.
Captain Wenworth Most of my colleagues now have standing desks - I'm kind of intrigued by the concept, but not quite enough to warrant the investment. Yet.

Captain Wenworth I just have this suspicion now that I'm really going to resent going back to the office if/when this is all over...
David There is absolutely no reason to go back, unless it is to socialise.
Nehemiah Klee yeah working from home is just better because you don't waste time on commute and just sitting to finish a certain arbitrary time limit.
Diva Will you need to go back to the office before an effective vaccine is found?
Miso I'm actually looking forward to do that, mostly to see people. Been a while since I saw bunch of my coworkers.

Captain Wenworth I've been working from home since 23 March; bought a proper desk, and a 21:9 monitor, and it's been working well

Lucian Marin Should I send an email to the last active people announcing Subreply?
Captain Wenworth Thanks for the email! I had forgotten about sublevel, but I really like the concept, and will try to make more use of it!

Captain Wenworth Work is getting a little bit busy, and a little bit frenetic.
