    The coronavirus conspiracy

    I think I did say in the OP that it was time for a corona virus thread anyway, but the rather striking coincidence of there being a high level bio-lab just meters from the Wuhan live market identified as the source of the virus does refuse to go away. Cheers

    Yeah, There have been a number of reports, including the dear "Border Force" who seem about as useful as their American TSA brethren, not taking responsibility for much of anything. They never have seemed much more than ill-trained pseudo cops. Cheers

    Had me a little concerned but I gather it has more to do with needing the extra manpower. The ADF is mostly composed of pretty sensible people, less likely to be a problem than expanding the NSW police force... Cheers

    Yeah, at least both Oz, and NZ, wont have that problem, we are sort of bread baskets. Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Ain't that the truth... I don't do FB but I do visit Quora, sometimes I read a post and have no better idea of what the person was talking about at the end than I did at the beginning. Sure, some of them are for example Indians, but it is amazing how many Americans cannot convey an idea in words. As for punctuation, forget it. Cheers

    To be fair that area is endemic with salt damp so the houses are very likely in a very poor state of repair but that is somewhat beside the point in the current situation. Cheers

    It's a big hobby horse with this government, they made a huge mess for ages near me until recently and didn't really solve the issue and are doing the same on South Road. Adelaide does have a number of dodgy intersections but most of them could be fixed easier with lights. That intersection is far from being the worst of them. Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    To go right back to the origins of this thread there still seems to be considerable debate over if the Covid Virus was a lab escapee in Wuhan: https://thebulletin.org/2020/03/experts-know-the-new-coronavirus-is-not-a-bioweapon-they-disagree-on-whether-it-could-have-leaked-from-a-research-lab/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=ThursdayNewsletter03262020&utm_content=DisruptiveTechnology_CoronavirusLab_03232020# In the end of course it doesn't matter but doing our best to not have a repeat if it is the case does - next time it could be something far more deadly. Cheers

    Hardly surprising, the damned thing should have corroded out decades ago. Cheers

    ...Damned hard lesson for America to learn, that they are at the mercy of a moron... Cheers

    Hmm, The elective surgery thing is nationwide but I don't think injections for macro degeneration would be regarded as elective, it's also out-patient usually. Mum used to have them every six weeks - kept her eyesight, just. Cheers

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Heh, With the best will in the world I really wish he would get a dose of CV, he is off with the fairies if he thinks there is any chance of this being over by Easter. Cheers

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Confusing news on the restart of production of the MAX: https://www.businessinsider.com.au/boeing-to-restart-production-737-max-by-may-reuters-2020-3?r=US&IR=T Hard to understand how production is likely to restart by May with the world anticipated to be still in the grips of coronavirus - I can't imagine many if any airlines being interested in taking deliveries with most fleets near to totally grounded. Cheers

    Potion took him to 92 and apparently like many a Frenchman he regarded wine as a breakfast heart-starter - at 92, who's to argue ? Cheers

    At a dentist I guess the first thing to run low on supplies would be masks. It's a bit scary how many things you do not think of can be affected by this virus. Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    I REALLY, REALLY wish you would understand what a Troll is... I'm managing ok with IT on a remote basis thus far, might change if I have to visit anywhere One of the nice things about remote management which often passes notice is that it is self-documenting, your logon/logoff times and activity are all in the records - makes invoicing a breeze Cheers

    Boy did he live a wonderful life - my kids systematically destroyed all my Asterix books by reading them so much when they were growing up so I've been progressively replacing them That was always the beauty of Asterix and Lucky Luke for that matter, Goscinny was involved in the later years of the latter, the humour appealed to all ages in different ways RIP and thanks for the memories, Cheers

    Could be a useful outcome of the virus if enough of the Senate get sick... Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Heh, Trump seems to think it is more important to keep the economy running than to save lives - seems to sort of ignore the fact that sick people can't maintain an economy... The crazy thing is that there are some agreeing with him - if he wants to permanently tank the U.S. economy then ignoring the facts about the virus is a really good way to do it. Cheers

    Better to err on the side of caution. To the best of my knowledge the virus had not made it to Eyre Peninsula, where my brother and his family live, it did today, golfers on tour... There is no such thing as "exceptions" but I guess the memo did not make it to Port Douglas... Cheers

    It's just an enduring, badly designed joke... Good to see Russia and the U.S. setting everything aside and just getting in to support Italy in a time of need: https://theaviationist.com/2020/03/22/russian-military-launches-humanitarian-air-bridge-sending-il-76-airlifters-to-help-italy-fight-covid-19/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Heh, Never did win Govt bids on net builds to the point we didn't bid - wonder why ? To some degree, less so but noticeable, we are seeing the same thing as the U.S. - States per-empting necessary decisions. WRGT schools I really don't know, Singapore has not closed theirs, which is a pretty good bellwether, but our environment in a social sense is different and that might be significant. We are in uncharted waters but procrastination is the enemy, better to over-react... Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Gezzus Christ - if a site of national significance cannot handle at least 250,000 concurrent connections it should not be up - 750,000 for some headroom - a lot of people are slow to logout. It really is not THAT hard, a mix of decent HTML code monkeys and some industrial strength network design, in particular load balancing - what a crock of shit... Cheers
