    May the rest of your vacation be better.

    I get back to work from vacation on Wednesday and I'm dreading going into a coronavirus panic hellscape. The college my girlfriend just started working at is closed down because their nursing students were interning at the assisted living facility where the current outbreak is.

    In the meantime this is my last night here so we're gonna grill out tonight.

    We're looking for a new hire to be Business Support, which is great. We've included HR in this, which is... fine, the person assigned to help has really spiffed up the ad graphically. English skills are fairly important for the job, so important that it's been decided to do the listing entirely in English. This is problematic because the HR person doesn't really speak it, but still converted it from Danish to English. Or at least was responsible for running it through Google Translate.

    Which is how I ended up in a conversation today that went "Hey David, you're probably the best person in the office when it comes to communicating in English, would you mind--" "Tweaking this listing a little?" "--rewriting it from scratch?". And it ended up being sent back to HR practically sight unseen.

    I really hope we end up getting someone good, not just because we need someone but also because I feel slightly responsible now.

    My rule of thumb is thus:

    Email comes in Monday - Wednesday: "Sorry for the delayed response, still catching up from the weekend"
    Email comes in Thursday - Friday: "Sorry for the delayed response, didn't get to this before the weekend."
    Email comes in Saturday - Sunday: "What email?"

    But for real, last week I was auditing the email records for our office and found out I had sent more email than anyone else here over the last 5 years. I did the math and it came out to 51 emails per day over 5 years. Roughly double the next closest person in the office.

    Then I realized I didn't account for being off weekends, which adjusted the per-day email average up to almost 72 per working day.

    They just sent an email out asking about people's capabilities to work from home in case we have to shut the office down due to the coronavirus.

    I... probably could, but I wonder if they'd be able to give me a firm laptop to work from because I don't have a lot of the stuff we'd use.

    That should be a no-brainer on their part. No company wants its sensitive data exposed to a filthy personal computer :razz:

    Yeah, true enough! My only concern is access to a printer, since I don't have one at home, and I easily have the longest commute of anyone here so just being able to take one home is... unlikely.

    Just on that last fact alone Enc, I'd say go for it. The fact that you'd potentially have a less stressful and, more importantly, stable working environment is worth it just from that alone.

    I can only imagine what will happen at my work if we get hit with corona. There are so many shared surfaces we are forced to touch. Many (hundreds, thousands) of people in/out every day. People who work in offices could maybe work from home, I don't really know. But essential plant personnel must work in the plant. If a sizable portion of essential personnel get corona I'm not sure how my company will deal. It is feasible we wouldn't be able to maintain the minimum complement of essential staff. Safety wise I think it would be fine, we could go into basically "quiet mode", possibly shut down a reactor if we didn't have enough staff to run them all.

    One thing I do know is any essential staff who can stay healthy might make fuckloads of OT money

    Thankfully our support staff and I should be able to easily work from home as we're all on laptops and VOIP, but I can't see how some of our product and critical gov dev groups would be able to work from home without some rapid VPN jiggering. And I can't see that happening at government response time. Everyone's watching new case developments like a hawk since Washington now reported the first official Corona deaths in the US now. :( (and we're up to 6 confirmed deaths on top of it too)

    Totally! Some counties still require you to mail in an actual physical document for their filing system, though. But I think stuff like that could probably wait until we got back to work?
