Morning all well and truly in isolation for me here in France.
Still coughing and not feeling great but it's going to be a beautiful day so going to try and get some fresh air just around the neighborhood.
Loads to be doing at the new house but can't buy anything and not going to risk getting into trouble going over there so nothing will get done.
Stay safe all.

Good morning everyone, more challenging times today. Seems like we're delaying the inevitable. Less than 500 ins and outs should be around 750-800.
Interesting. I've been wondering about that, Martin. We read about flights cancellations and there seem to be fewer evening flights heading out to Asia (they're still on full thrust out here and I hear them climbing out over the east coast between around 9.30 and 10.30pm), but I'd love to see a Skyscanner map showing last month compared to now.

Morning, all. Working at home. A morning of calls with a largely-recovered Asia awaits. Talking to folk in HK yesterday, they said their newest infections were imported from Europe.

Anyway, back to it. Stay well, be glorious.

My first Paddy's Day in Ireland but given the circumstances different to what I expected, so we are off to find a bit of deserted coast for a family walk, Picnic and Coffee flasks for an old style day out

Morning all. Office today, need to find out what their contingency plans are if they have to shut the office (do we still pay rent?).
Have brought the box in for my iMac to take home and set up camp there as I expect the shut down to be either the end of this week or next week some time.

PPPPPP as they say.

Morning all. All my company's events for various car brands postponed indefinitely. Me and the guy I run the business with are ok but it's the 150 staff we sub in for events that I worry about. All the other agencies they work for in the same boat as us so no work.

Morning all WFH obviously heard late last night the business is going to close the retail stores for a time and focus all sales on the digital channel, that should keep my team busy as we try to optimise throughput as much as possible.

Good morning everyone, lie in today. Will be working from home tomorrow but going in to collect bits and accept my new equipment room building. Lots of contractors being laid off, many have been here for 20 years or so. A few projects are being shelved too which is short sighted IMHO, now is the time to get work done. 400 or so flights today compared to the 700, zero through the night. Perfect opportunity.

Morning all!............This is so strange and eerie! Many off the staff are now WFH and the rest of us at the University shall be from Friday, until when we don't know yet. I have never experienced anything like this before, I feel like I am living in a horror/Science Fiction movie.........War of the Worlds springs to mind!!
Stay safe all of you!
