For me, this was Day 3 of working from home for the foreseeable future. At one point I was:
Updating help text on my machine for a work application.
Remote Desktop'ed to my machine at work where I was gathering source code to work offline.
Remote Desktop'ed to a lab machine at work that was being recalcitrant about installing a test application.
Handling work e-mails with the work cell because my machine and the work machine session were busy.
On my personal phone wrangling doctor appts and subscription refills for my wife and I because we've reached the age where keeping our body chemistry regulated is complicated.
When not on the phone, talking to my wife about why it's okay for her to go for a drive (she's getting a little stir crazy), and no she shouldn't stop in any stores.
Occasionally turning around and talking to my dogs because I needed to see a friendly face. They're especially friendly right now because it's dinner time.
Communications are slightly more frenetic than usual. At one point our secure FTP provider at work went belly-up and I had to resort to emailing stuff to myself at home, 5MB at a time.
The one advantage is that the commute is easy (up one flight of stairs) and the dress code is... relaxed.
turn off notification sounds and vibrations on your phone (or wear headphones at your pc)
take your phone out of your pocket and place it face-down on the table
now, when you aren't trying to Get Something Done, check your systray icons (slack, etc), flip your phone, have a look at any notifications there, check your email, check your slack. Then go back to being productive and check-in when you feel like it later.

You will spend your life completely wasting your time
You will be doing things you don't like doing
In order to go on living
That is, to go on doing things you don't like doing
Hi all, I'm currently working on a project that because of the current climate ( COV and his mates ) I need to be able to access remotely, I have been using Dropbox and directly opening the project from there , but, I'm sure there's a better way of doing this. Never used Github before ( although I do have an account ) would this be a more efficient / correct way of doing this ? Any advice would be good
