Behodar:

 

And then you can't do this 'urgent' request without a little more information from them... which they finally get around to supplying three weeks later.

 

 

I must admit I have been a little less patient (partly due to stress and considerably less sleep) with people who say 'this isn't working'.

 

What isn't working, what is the error, you emailed me, so please include a screenshot if possible!

 

Help me to help you, ESPECIALLY right now, when I am trying to get 1000 things done in the next hour.

There was a 'take a photo of your home office' thing in our staff newsletter. Some of the photos were sensible, but a number of them had laptops sitting outside on a deck table, often with the screen off... not much work being done! But the 'winner' was probably the laptop with lid closed and cat asleep on it!

The problem only happens on some records, but I'm not going to list even one of them. Just use your psychic debugging powers.

surfisup1000:

 

Parents car parks. 

 

Ridiculous. 

 

We never had them, I just don't see the need. Being a parent does not make one disabled. 

 

 

 

 

Be grateful for them - kids have a habit of just flinging their car door open and dinging yours. Better to have them isolated.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Honestly, I don't give a stuff. There are bigger things to worry about.

Having parcels turn up at work while working from home. 

 

I see postal and courier services are essential and still operating, but what will happen with deliveries to businesses?

 

 

One of our premises is staffed (essential service etc) 24/7 so the courier can be let in.

 

At the other, the courier has a key and can drop freight in a safe place.

 

What about yours?

 

 

Locked up. Everyone in our Wellington office is working from home, including those providing essential services. The office is closed. I doubt the courier has an access card.

My office is open as usual. It just served poached eggs on wholemeal toast for breakfast and is now skimming the overnight email. ;-)

Handsome Dan is perplexed...and a little stir crazy.
