      People are going to have work really hard on schadenfreude-suppression for that one. Hope she gets better soon.

          In other news, I made a tarte tatin. Looks a bit messy but tastes authentic.

            Pizza oven arrived friday, made a basic dough saturday morning and worked out ok, need to try 48hour dough next. No pic of the pizza that caught on fire...lol

            Will try and make a dedicated table for it sometime.

              We're going to have to invent some new term for what is going on in the Trump administration.

              None of 'clusterfuck', 'omnishambles' or 'shitshow' are really enough to fully convey the depth of what is going on here.

                      Is there an expression for a child who is particularly proud that they just filled their nappy? Cause it's that.

                          Today, I had my first face to face meeting with a customer since March 6th.

                          I had to get approval from my RVP to attend the meeting plus I had to arrive masked up, sanitize my hands on arrival, complete a full contact tracing form (which included confirming I had no symptoms, hadn't been in contact with a confirmed or suspect case or had been out of Ireland in the last 14 days), have my temperature taken, wear the mask for the entire meeting and we sat about 3-4 meters apart at all times.

                          It was fucking brilliant - I'd love to never have to get on another zoom call again (although that won't happen for a while yet) but just getting back out and being able to, somewhat, interact with customers was brilliant.

                          Technology is great but you can't beat the personal relationship, it's significantly better than phone/e-mail/zoom/skype/teams - It's just no contest.

                            You get a lot more short client meetings and as a result quicker turnaround of projects via video calls imo. Hard to build new business relationships but for existing clients it can really speed up things.


                            Face to face has its place but working remotely 60-80% of the time is a huge win from my perspective. Quality of family life has gone up quite a lot.

                                          They can be quicker but not necessarily better imo. We've one project in particular with a customer that is having the arse being dragged out which simply wouldn't happen if we were meeting face to face rather than online for the last few months.


                                          In my industry, changing your supplier (I'm the supplier) is very quick and easy, it might not always be the right thing to do long term but it is very quick and easy to do. We also have huge amounts of competition and there is always at least a couple who will offer stupid low pricing looking to buy business (it may be the same in order industries too) so the relationships with our existing customers are even more important than bringing on new ones. Face to face for me is the best way of maintaining that, it's been proven time and time again.

She could do with a bit more help from the team, her mammy mightn't be too impressed with the annunciation answer also they were unlucky with the order of the picture questions.

                                                      Thanks SP. The whole family shouted varying wrong answers at the screen for the annunciation one, including Mammy, so no judgement. Obviously very proud.

I really hope you or Joe Biden never get it, it's terrible and there's a good chance it would kill you. Me though, the doctors at Walter Reed said they'd never seen anyone fight it the way I fought it.

                                                                                          Plenty still doesn't add up though. At least in the reporting of it...

                                                                                          How would his fellow countryman dispose of a body in a foreign country? I know if I accidentally killed someone with an over enthusiastic box round the ear in Iceland I wouldn't have a clue how to successfully cover it up. Probably why I'm not a criminal mastermind.
                                                                                          We've all done the case loots, but never with some underworld criminals money.
                                                                                          The whole "he wasn't involved in crime, but was simply in possession of the criminals money" is odd as well.

                                                                                          Maybe I've watch and read too many serial killer/mafia hitman documentaries and books. But I don't think it would be difficult to get rid of a body at all.
                                                                                          Lads dropping bodies in canals aren't trying to hide them.

We've one project in particular with a customer that is having the arse being dragged out which simply wouldn't happen if we were meeting face to face rather than online for the last few months.


                                                                                          In my industry, changing your supplier (I'm the supplier) is very quick and easy, it might not always be the right thing to do long term but it is very quick and easy to do. We also have huge amounts of competition and there is always at least a couple who will offer stupid low pricing looking to buy business (it may be the same in order industries too) so the relationships with our existing customers are even more important than bringing on new ones. Face to face for me is the best way of maintaining that, it's been proven time and time again.
                                                                                          I think it really depends on the industry and the type of meeting.
                                                                                          From March to August. I was on a single project with many internal meeting, multiple times a day. In this was done in a face to face setting (as would have been the plan without Covid), this would have been incredibly repetitive and unproductive. Instead I spent most meeting multitasking and getting my actual work done.

                                                                                          But the last few weeks I've been doing something that absolutely required me to be on site and see items in person. Just depends.
                                                                                          Currently doing 2 days midweek in the office and 3 from home. It breaks up the week pretty well and is preferable for me to 5 from home.

Still think it's pretty funny that a long established private company reckons it can profit from selling such tat. Good luck to them if they can.

                                                                                                                Early morning yesterday the Independent published a very detailed and disturbing article about Jon's disappearance.
                                                                                                                In the article, the reporter claims that Jon’s family was made aware of the information, detailed in the article, by an informant. This is utterly untrue as no such information has been received by the family nor have we received any leads from an imprisoned informant.

                                                                                                                Furthermore, our contacts at Garda and the Icelandic police have confirmed to members of the family that they haven’t received any information as described in the article nor did they communicate any such information to the reporter, Ali Bracken, or the Independent. So the story is at best based on information from an unreliable source or, at worst, completely made up.

                                                                                                                Needless to say, the publishing of the story in the Independent and subsequently in Icelandic media has caused Jon’s family unnecessary harm. The reporter, Ali Bracken, has shown grave negligence by writing an unsubstantiated story in such a delicate case and shown complete disrespect and disregard to Jon’s family by publishing it. So has the Icelandic media that ran the story.

                                                                                                                The family is planning on submitting a formal complaint to Ireland's National Union of Journalists for Ali Bracken's and her editor's at the
