Working From Home with LInux During COVID-19
« on: March 15, 2020, 12:07:28 am »
So I actually worked from home for a few hours today and expect to be doing more while COVID-19 is a serious issue here in Los Angeles county. There's a ton of remote work posts on the web but nothing about Linux so I wrote a thing.

Although I'm a die hard Peppermint user I opted to change up my work workflows in Lubuntu thus keeping it visually and physcially different from personal and leisure activities.

Its getting crazy. A friend of mine was abruptly laid off after the MLB and NHL seasons were cancelled. The restaurant she works at relies heavily on stadium traffic.

.
That is a very good idea to have 2 different systems to separate work from play.  Trains your mind, kind of like a service dog.  While his vest is on he's at work, ever diligent.  With it off he can relax and play.

Well I'm retired since 2017 and enjoying it so hanging around the house is the norm.

I've been going through boxes of old electronics parts  / old radio chassis / old TV chassis / old test equipment and whatever else.

I have everything loaded in the truck to take out to the farm to be used for a better purpose where it will be blasted full of holes.  ;D

Why do this is you ask.  ???  Simple answer it's a lot of fun.  ;D

And.

I haven't been able to sell any of it.  :(
I haven't been able to give any of it away.  :(
I'm unwilling to put forth anymore effort to find useful outlets to repurposed it.  ???  :o  :(

I also have scrapped out around twenty old desktops and laptops and they will also be going out to the farm to be blasted full of holes.  ;D

And.

I set up my reloading equipment and reloaded quite a pile of 357 magnum rounds and 38 special rounds so I can go out to the farm and do some shooting.  :)  ;D  8)

The Wife and I enjoy shooting firearms.  :)

So that's kinda what we've been doing to try and make the best out of this situation.  :)


Life is good.  ;)

ive spent the last 3 weeks locked up sick as a dog, thought it was a regular chest infection at first but it mightve been covid because i had nearly every symptom of it. started feeling it the day after i finished work and thankfully im almost over it. today i havent felt crap for once, messing with linux, gimp and chatting on discord kept me somewhat sane hahaa
