Anyone else "essential"? I was told we will finally get masks for work, so at least that is something.

I also demand, yes demand, you all watch "Tiger King" on Netfilx.

I'm "essential" but I can work from home and just finished all the necessary system changes to allow the rest of the staff to work from home. Upside, my new VPN doesn't block this site! They never updated the blocking system so while I couldn't get here because it's "games" I could get to any major gaming site.

Seconding the Tiger King, they're supposedly adding another episode next week!

Funny thing for me is I've been full time WFH for the last 2.5 years so this hasn't even impacted me that much. At least not on the work side. Of course not being able to leave the house really because I'm told not to sucks. Even though if I had the choice I'd stay home like 99% of the time anyway because I'm a shut in.

Like Furiel, I’ve been living the pandemic lifestyle for years. I don’t go down to the base or the office unless there is an absolute need. I won’t be happy until I’m a brain in a jar sitting on a shelf wired up to the internet.

However, you essentials are performing a mitzvah. God bless.

I am not essential but all my work is done on the net so I've been working from home going on almost 4 weeks now.

So far the only complaint I have is ever increasing desires to have Pho but all the places are closed because none had drive thru. Probably didn't help most closest to me also did some chinese options so may have had that going against them.

Nevermind, everything finally worked now that senior management stopped getting in the way :lightsaber:

Turns out you need fast internet to work from home taking calls.

Unfortunately I'm still stuck troubleshooting with people that don't understand they need to be connected to a VPN before they can login to any of our things. :woe:

I can't find the VPN button after I dial-in to AOL.
