This whole thing is a bit of a comedy of errors and a bit of a wake up.

We figured that we, of all organisations, could work from home and not even notice the change (except for Brigitta's pizza runs). But suddenly we find VPN access isn't working for one person. Another is having Zoom issues. Laptops are now as scarce as toilet paper (and nowhere near as soft and pliant). State bodies looking to get an edge are going to have a field day sniffing around all these exposed and poorly setup connections.

One interesting thing is seeing the natural work day drift by a few hours, and in both directions. Some are working earlier than usual, some switching to a late (late!) morning start and going through till the wee hours. Way more civilised.
cheers
