Shelter In Place: Day 19

4 hours ago, for day 95 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 5 Well, we are definitely not there yet. Not even close. The peek that is. Maybe another month, maybe things will be getting back to normal by August. I expect the number above to go over 100. I don't want it to obviously, I...


Shelter In Place: Day 18

1 day ago, for day 94 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 5 β€œHere in my car I feel safest of all” - Garry Numan American was always a car nation - or as Kenny Everett would describe it, a country full of rose colored vehicles, a pink car nation. But now, even though there...


Shelter In Place: Day 17

2 days ago, for day 93 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Rolls of toilet paper on any shelf in any store: 0 I’m really getting exhausted with interviewing DevOps people. For those that have only been the interviewee and found the process tiring, being the interviewer is no easy task either especially when you...


Shelter In Place: Day 16

3 days ago, for day 92 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 (yes, you don't actually need as much as you imagine) Well, it looks like the count is going to get to at least 50 or close to it before this is over. I say 50 because that is the new "Shelter in place"...

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Two weeks already, it seems longer yet, I get the feeling we are only at the start. Looks like we’ll doing this until the end of April, at least, probably longer. It’s going to be an odd summer. Everything is now closed until...


Shelter In Place: Day 13

6 days ago, for day 89 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

We have less than eighteen years to fix this, eighteen years I say. If we don't, we'll wake up on Tuesday 19th January 2038 and have a really big problem on our hands.


Shelter In Place: Day 12

1 week ago, for day 88 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 I made the mistake of going out shopping to get a few basic supplies. Things are getting back to normal with almost everything, except toilet paper/paper towels. The shelves are empty. Nevertheless, even if I run out I have backup plans. I may...


Shelter In Place: Day 11

1 week ago, for day 87 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 6 Trips outside: 3. I went to collect the mail. I went to fix one of the outside surveillance cameras that had been knocked by a bird, cat, possum, squirrel etc and the third time was to cut some roses from the garden a...


Shelter In Place: Day 9

1 week ago, for day 85 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

Rolls of toilet paper left: 7 Another day, more infections, more deaths, the new normal. As always I check the US map which you can find here. 95% increase in NY since Sunday. Does more testing provide higher numbers, of course it does? Do higher numbers mean more deaths,...
