Locally it's toilet rolls, paracetamol, liquid soap, pasta, tomato ketchup, and mayonnaise.
Oh, and "Home Bargains" is out of wine, apparently!
What gets me is these people emptying the shelves of all forms of pasta are leaving tinned tomatoes alone - what the heck are they going to put with it (other than ketchup and mayo)?
And from what I have seen of them, they can't cope with a recipe unless it starts with "For best results, cook from frozen."

I'm talking about Cloud & the Hardware architecture abstraction.
I remember, back in 2000s when I joined a company as a rookie, a team of IT guys, all big experts sitting down and discussing the hardware configurations, Networking needed for a new project.
As things evolved, gradually, in the next companies I worked for, there were no datacentres. All the projects developed were deployed on cloud (Yep, typical start-up). And in more recent days teams are talking about "serverless" - which means you don't even get to read the configurations on paper.
Now I'm back to a mid size company having datacentre. but still most of the projects are in cloud and nobody gets a chance to discuss hardware.
What do you think? Cloud advancement is a positive evolution for developers?
or it's clearly dumbing down the brains w.r.t hardware architecture.
