Saw a couple folks posted yesterday which confirmed this place is still functioning! With world events unfolding as they are, be great to hear from anyone that still comes by the forum from time-to-time. Just a quick update to say how you are doing.
Don't just read, hit that reply button and say "hey!"
I guess as windows and pc hardware get better, and with helpful videos, there are fewer questions that send us here. But when I DO have a question I am still sure someone more knowledgeable than I will respond. Its not just about the online friendships but about the years of experience here. I know the queries and responses are fewer, but can anyone tell me about the number of reads? Also, doesn't Jason live in NYC? Still doing well in quarantine. Fran and Randy. Fran, who couldn't live without you folks!
#11. "RE: I Am Surviving 2020 So Far - Check-in Thread" In response to Ttech (Reply # 7)
Yup. I live in. upstate NY. We're not getting slammed like the NYC area is, but our cases are still on the rise. We've been locked in our house for two weeks now. I only venture out to get groceries (as little as possible). When I get home, my clothes immediately go into the wash and I scrub my hands.
Beth will also occasionally venture out if her mother needs her, but that's rare. (Her mother was in the hospital for 60+ days this past summer so we don't want to expose her to anything.) The kids have been home from school for two weeks and likely will stay out for at least another month.
I'm working from home and basically living a hermit life. It's hard not being able to leave the house, but we're managing. Doing all we can to flatten the curve since the New York health care system isn't going to be able to withstand the influx of patients otherwise.
I actually checked in to see if anyone had done a check-in thread. I get scared going out for food. Going grocery shopping is like riding a bike, drunk, in Hong Kong traffic. Just to many ways to get nailed with some of the dummies around here.
Hi from Oz. Still leading my humdrum life, now doubled in spades! The whole of Oz is pretty much in lockdown now and we have no family in visiting distance anyway. Seems Ttech always beats me to the spam posts.
