Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Yesterday, Leicester had more cases of C-19 in hospital than at the previous peak in April (264 vs 204) with 19 in intensive care. Story adds: at the end of September, they had just two recovered cases left and about to be discharged... NHS states that they are monitoring an ongoing rise in infectio...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

The next England lockdown except schools/colleges/universities commences this Thursday and, today, the town was overflowing with people, a high percentage of whom were not wearing a face covering, maintaining 2m distance or bothering to stifle coughs and sneezes. ‘Cos, like, the rules don’t come in ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Hello Clogs! How's things? I’m still here, which is A Good Thing, and the cough is just intermittent and annoying - I’ve been made to sit away from the other members of my team, though... Could get a chance at home working in ‘a bubble’ (makes me laugh every time), which would be nice as it a) save...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Denyer, you might be right, there. I was, very seriously, today advised that I can spend time in lockdown pursuing hobbies such as knitting, doing housework, taking up new crafts or baking. The guy calling then asked me what I intended to do, so I told him: the Shadowlands pre-patch is out on World ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Sweet Primus (with retro-rats) on a pogo stick... while I appreciate that NHS Track and Trace have a job to do, if I get one more call repeating the major indicators for C-19 and advising me to self-isolate, I’ll scream! Yeah, I know some people need constantly reminding and being checked on, but I’...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Darling, Denyer, I have to wait until I’m 75 for a free anti-pneumonia jab.

Only 15 years and three months to go yee-haw! :swirly:

Were they really doling out antibiotics for what they reckoned was a virus? There's no educating some so-called professionals.
In case of secondary infection: possibly to stave of pneumonia?

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Thanks, Denyer! Tell you what: way back in March, me, a few of my work colleagues and my bestie all went down with a temperature, cough and breathlesness and were pretty much done in for weeks. Our doctors told each of us it was a bad viral infection, and we got antibiotics and sick notes. Absence w...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Okayyyyy.... results time. According to the test, I don’t have Covid-19, but my youngest son, now 21, does. Cue all sorts of messages, telephone calls, questions about mental health in lockdown and advice about major symptoms. Called my doctor in case I have bronchitis, then. Nope, he told me I have...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Taken a test this afternoon... Aching, dry cough, breathless if not resting. Very tired. Started, I suppose, late Saturday, but hit me hard on Monday and I hung on, hoping it would be a short, sharp cold. We shall see... So many people now donning a mask to enter a bus, building or other public spac...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Ventilation's good but they still have a responsibility to heat to minimum temperatures so it's still an HSE matter if the environment's unsuitable. Yep, I’ve mentioned this... I’m H&S trained, but not one of the official reps where I now work nor am I in their union, so it’s going to be interestin...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

@Tantrum: The reason? Our air con is not really a proper one - it’s like a super reverse air vent, really. It brings in air from outside, whatever the temperature, and redistributes it through four ceiling vents containing fans. It does cool hot air, but makes cold air, well, colder. Every day this ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

UK update: masks - social distancing - fines for non-compliance. I don’t know whether to laugh or weep or just keep my fingers crossed. Personally, I’m hoping not to perish of hypothermia at work. There’s just a handful of us in, spread well apart, and shivering like whippets. We must keep our air c...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Bottom line for me is: try to get this bunch of the (deleted expletive) entitled to obey anything they’re told. Should the government have moved faster? Yes. Would it have made a difference? Possibly... i salute NZ, since getting humans to comply with anything official is worse than herding cats. No...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

What Denyer said... I’m not blaming the government, if I’m honest, for more than mixed messages given out as the Titanic is sinking; reacting to an impossible situation and finding out a few more lifeboats would’ve been nice. I’m just so angry with the self-centred bunch of oiks who carry on as if t...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

For a retro book, the modern digital colouring looked off to me. I think if it had the old 'flat' colouring you used to get in the '80s and early '90s, it would have looked much more the part for the era it was trying to represent. Since I have the series in digital format, I’m happy with the colou...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

Just done some serious catching up and my bank account is weeping... Grabbed a lot of TF stuff on ComiXology and got stuck in... MTMTE and Lost Light are clever, tongue-in-cheek and generally well-crafted. Loved the moment Megs was pushed to say Optimus’ iconic line and the quantum stuffs going quan...
