04:16<Eddi|zuHause>i noticed a shortcoming of bananas: if you search for common abbreviations like "TTRS" and "eGRVTS", the respective GRF doesn't show up because they didn't use those tags
04:17<Eddi|zuHause>actually, eGRVTS does show up, i'm just blind.

05:07<Samu>make the UFO land more often in house tiles
05:07<Samu>it ruins transportations that were depending on those houses :)

07:57<Samu>my AI is almost ready

08:44<andythenorth>Wolf01 hi
08:44<Wolf01>o/
08:45<andythenorth>how are things where you are?
08:45<Wolf01>Same shit, no changes so far
08:46<andythenorth>I just read a social media thing, long thread from someone in Italy
08:46<andythenorth>wondering how accurate it is
08:46<andythenorth>says there are thousands of bodies, and that many many children are dying
08:47<andythenorth>and that people are running out of food and shops are price gouging
08:47<andythenorth>none of this matches any reporting we have here
08:49<Wolf01>Bah, the usual idiots which found you can say stupid things over internet
08:49<Eddi|zuHause>last thing i heard was mayors making angry videos
08:50<Eddi|zuHause>and germany claiming their death rate is lower because they do more testing
08:50<Eddi|zuHause>(which i think left out a load of details)
08:51<andythenorth>it didn't look like the usual moron thread, which is why I ask
08:51<andythenorth>it seemed more like someone who had ignored the situation, and only just realised what was happening, like "omfg, what is this?'
08:51<Eddi|zuHause>sometimes morons sound very convincing, that's why they're so dangerous
08:52<andythenorth>+1
08:52*andythenorth back to work
08:52*Wolf01 too
08:52<andythenorth>mostly I discount "suff on the internet" but sometimes I fail :P
08:52<andythenorth>stuff *
08:54<Eddi|zuHause>i can't bring myself to do any actual work
08:54<Eddi|zuHause>and i've run into a fairly minor bug in stellaris, that completely destroyed my immersion and will to play on
08:54<andythenorth>I find doing work very helpful
08:55<andythenorth>but I had a couple of days of inaction
08:55<andythenorth>much video calling :P
08:55<Wolf01>We are still confusing who should do something, what to do, why we don't reason before doing things and do things directly, repeat.
08:55<Eddi|zuHause>last time i tried to do any work i ran into issues setting up a VPN because i have not enough control over the workplace network, and their network admin wasn't available
08:57<Eddi|zuHause>i fixed the one line of code that was wrong, but 3 hours of setting up various vpns lead me nowhere near getting the fix deployed
08:58<andythenorth>do you work on stuff that is airgapped by design?
08:58<andythenorth>or is it all just legacy reasons?
08:59<Eddi|zuHause>no, it's not airgapped
08:59<Eddi|zuHause>just trying it the naive way didn't seem to work

12:48<supermop_Home_>its taken me basically since the last recession to put a career back together again
12:49<supermop_Home_>and now that career is basically design almost entirely for the F&B / Hospitality industry
12:49<supermop_Home_>which essentially disappeared overnight a week or so ago
12:58<andythenorth>I'm not being flippant, but there might be opportunity in it somewhere
13:07<Eddi|zuHause>there's two ways to deal with this situation: a) take your things, move on to a different field that you think works out more reliably, or b) wait it out and hope that your target audience is coming back
13:09<Eddi|zuHause>you know, after an extinction event, there comes a phase of exponential growth. you just have to hold out for long enough
13:31<Wolf01>And not get caught in the extinction
13:34<Eddi|zuHause>well, i was kinda implying that in "hold out"
13:38<Samu>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q6VeihJUQs - wow, it almost looks like my country is first world
13:55<Samu>wow, the US is moving up fast
13:56<Samu>they're going to overtake China first before Italy
14:08<Samu>how often do ppl that setup AIs change profile settings?
14:08<Samu>difficulty profile
14:09<Samu>how visible should this setting be?
14:21<andythenorth>crash report in .docx eh
14:21<andythenorth>that's new
14:21<andythenorth>(forums)
14:22<Eddi|zuHause>surprising that doesn't happen more often
14:23<Wolf01>Lol, when customers send screenshots (entire screen) of an error in a docx and your boss prints it and you must figure out by yourself what the error was...
14:23<Eddi|zuHause>Wolf01: like people print out faxes to scan them back in and then email them on?
14:24<Eddi|zuHause>a friend of mine worked in a railway logistics office, and they sent contracts per fax that were so low-res you couldn't read the fine print anymore
14:24<Wolf01>Yes, happened that too
14:25<Wolf01>Btw, pizza is ready
14:27<Eddi|zuHause>i had pizza earlier
14:39<Wolf01>andythenorth, are the news from the royal family confirmed?
14:39<Samu>thinking of doing this, with the right colours and clickable buttons, of course https://i.imgur.com/comhYDT.png
14:39<Samu>should I go for it, or is it a waste of time?
14:39<andythenorth>Wolf01 Prince Charles is confirmed covid, according to news

15:03<@peter1138>I cycled on Tuesday evening but really haven't felt like I want to since :/
15:03<@peter1138>The whole unnecessary burden thing, if something happened.
15:03<andythenorth>I thought about that when I climbed the tree in my garden to cut branches
15:04<andythenorth>holding the branch I'm cutting in one hand and the saw in the other
15:04<@peter1138>At least I am still working.

17:15<TrueBrain>how I see everyone having to juggle work with kids atm ..
17:15<TrueBrain>don't envy you
17:16<orudge>I'm lucky that my wife isn't working at the moment, so she is able to take care of them for the most part during the day. Though I think I will be adjusting my hours a bit next week to assist more.
17:16<orudge>But yes, having them all here all the time is... interesting :P
17:17<TrueBrain>I like having these videocalls with coworkers ... those kids keep popping up
