    Yeah right now it's people who couldn't get shit before are starting to hoard (make multiple trips or bring multiple people).

    I just want to get like 4-5 boxes of rice a roni and some chicken and frozen veggies is that so much to ask?

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    Oo, rice a roni! It's been a while since I had that!
    I've got rice, and I could probably fry some a broken up noodle or two for vermicelli. It's the spicing (an area I am notoriously bad at) that would be the difficulty.

    I love rice a roni. A week ago when everyone first started going crazy at the store I stocked up on some rice a roni, but only like, slightly more than I usually get (like enough for three weeks instead of just two). There was plenty of rice a roni at the time, only plain white rice was gone. I guess people are hitting the rice a roni now? Sigh.

    I have always had 2 boxes of like 5 different flavors of rice-a-roni and pasta-roni in my cabinet. Most of them take less than 20 minutes to cook and are perfectly cromulent side dishes or main dishes when incorporated with a protein. The broccoli au gratin rice-a-roni is my personal favorite.

    I went through all of them in the past 13 days. When I went to the store last Saturday morning, they had nothing in that section of the store, and almost all of the fresh meat was gone. It was honestly pretty flabbergasting, since at that point my county only had four confirmed cases.

    The spice is mostly salt, anti caking agents and other preservatives, with maybe a hint of something for umami

    Yeah hold on to your rice as best as you can. I haven't been able to find even basic basmati in my local winco lately. Pasta at least seems to get regularly restocked, but rice eludes me at the moment.

    ah I just have lots of people go "oh pilaf? Why are you buying that 99 cent junk when it's easy... just follow this recipe that takes an extra 20 minutes and $10 worth of groceries" so I'm always a bit defensive lol

    A couple of years ago, I bought a 25 (11.33kg) lb bag of rice at Costco. It may just last me the rest of my life.

    started showing possible covid symptoms last friday

    confirmed fever middle of saturday while we were doing a major power cut over so I had to abandon the other tech working

    called state hot line and was denied testing

    got shortness of breath on sunday, went to the ER, they said oxygen levels were fine, i had all the symptoms and no other explanation but they refused testing due to material shortage

    told work, CEO didn't understand why they should treat it as if I had COVID-19, told them i'm on 14 day quarantine regardless

    CEO and assistant manager want all dept heads in the office for part of each week because???

    can't find laptops to help other departments do work from home

    everything is shit and i can't stop coughing

    besides the cough my symptoms are getting better by the day, shortness of breath was short lived fortunately

    my main concern is trying to put in place resources and plans so that it doesn't rip through us because some folks aren't taking it seriously

    I'm about ready to scream with the whitelisting I've been doing with the load balancer at work. It would be nice if a) people would listen to what I specifically request and b) other people don't step in to add their own two cents and confuse everyone.

    We are having a virtual spirit week next week. Each day is themed to a specific teacher and their interests. Students are can post their responses.

    I was picked to be next Friday and am games, books, recreational things. I need to send in a picture.

    I’m thinking of sitting in a big chair in my basement, surrounded by Lego, wearing a VR headset and a three piece suit, while reading a book.

    Worked 12 hours today on a COVID extract for a dashboard. If I don't finish it tomorrow I'll have to work over the weekend. As to think, I had scheduled PTO for tomorrow because I'd run out of things I could do when there was a freeze on all non COVID related or emergency changes in prod.

    At least my boss knows my PTO on the 10th is real and he can't touch that one.

    Hey, I just wanted to come in here and say that we've been hauling ass and getting slammed at the same time.

    My principle area of expertise is new client applications. We've had over half a million unique new IPs hit us in the past few days alone that's.. .unprecidented. Page views, applications, call numbers all just astronomical. Our call center hours of business have doubled, and we're still seeing call queues well into the night. We're even taking spill over and load from Healthline, just to help out where we can.

    We've pushed a half dozen significant updates to Prod, and have two more scheduled for Sunday and Monday night. We're getting permissions to bring down Prod in the middle of the day to get updates while there's more client load on the system than ever before.

    We've pushed out not one but 2 whole new products in the last week, which have already paid out $2.7 Billion ito over 400,000 recipients - a large proportion of which are new clients. And there's I-don't-even-know how many coming through the pipeline still, load after load and funnel after funnel, and we're trying to get that pipeline just as open as it can get so we can get to it all.

    My team is putting in extra miles at the moment. We're doing our very best to haul ass while bringing nothing less than our A-game, we're doing our very best to support the rest of the organistion; we're helping them, and there's people helping us, and everyone is putting down some fucking fire to do this right.


    It's been a fucking week, is what I'm saying, and we're doing our best to make each other - the country - proud. We're public fucking servants, and this week we're earning our fucking coffee. Even if the baristas are in lockdown.
