    Watching the reaction.

    Over the last week or two Iíve been checking out city cams around the world every now and then to see how other places are reacting to this pandemic and it seems the whole world is pretty much on lockdown.

    Itís an odd feeling being out and about; every day, every hour feels like an early Sunday morning.

    I donít drive, but if you are the type that enjoys driving / biking I imagine it must feel great Ė open roads and no traffic jams.

    If you're intersted hereís a link to one of the sites Iíve been looking at. Youíll have to turn off any adblock software you may be using:

    Working from home is damn weird, but I could definitely get used to it. I'm discovering that the main thing I dislike about work is wearing a suit and sitting in an office.

    As a retiree I'm seriously considering quarantining myself at a lake cabin with a fishing pole and my guitars. I may never go back to the city, pandemic or not!

    I don't know if I'd be able to work from home full time. There's something about actually travelling to work that allows me to get into the right frame of mind. It would take a tremendous amount of discipline on my part to keep myself motivated working from home.

    Home is where I relax and forget about all the shit that work entails, I like keeping the two separate and really don't want to mix them.

    Re: Watching the reaction.

    So, I'm back from my Sunday drive. All the lookout points, wildlife viewing areas, and state & national parks are closed. People are still fishing down by the river...that's where the crowds are...three people over there, two over here, and so on. So much for hiding out at the lake.

    When I got home my niece told me about a twitter forum she was on where they were discussing the pandemic. Someone made the comment that this was just like Captain Trips in The Stand. Well, Steven King was on that forum, too, and he responded that it was NOT anything like The Stand...to which the poster replied, "How would YOU know? Have you ever even read the book?"

    Stupid people always get angry at the ones smarter than they are because they think it's the smart ones making them look stupid. Sorry Einstein. You're looking stupid with no help from anyone else. That's what they like to think empowerment is...the ability to look and act stupid with no criticism from others.

    I worked from home, for the most part of my career (only exception is some early gigs). And I'd say being able to work while being relaxed is exactly the thing about it !!

    I can wake up, brush my teeth, wash my face, and can go straight to work !! Usually I hate going for breakfast after waking up straight away, and I like to take outdoor walks (assuming no corona bs), after getting lunch in afternoon. A weird routine, but thats the beauty of it. I am more productive in first 2-3 hours after waking up and last 2-3 hours before going to bad, and add additional 4-6 hours of work because I dont have to do anything else. And from anything else I mean getting ready to go into office or anything, I can just work in the pyjamas.

    But I think there is more to it than the flexibility of working in casual cloths, with odd and casual timings. And your point of keeping the work shit out of the home highlights it. For me, I love absolutely love my work, and I will get stressed if I DONT have to deal with it. Often times I will go to sleep mulling over some work related problem (say a software bug), only to come back 20 minutes later to write down some idea that popped in my head, to try it the first thing I wake up.

    I checked out the cam in Rome at some square of theirs. Two soldiers walking around their tent station with nothing to do. What a boring day at work. They're the only ones there.

    Yeah. I've looked at quite a few and Italy certainly seems to be the most deserted, but I suppose that's to be expected.
