I guess the Elephant In The Room is COVID-19 and how are people coping with Social Distancing.

Does a trip to the DataCentre count as an essential trip.

I guess we are, as a profession, best equipped to be able to work from home, but how are we to keep the office servers up and running, should we be further confined?

(We have mostly online systems, with some backup systems (R1Soft Servers and such) in the office, so we are hoping to still be able to get there!

The UK is full of idiots who think it wont get them, i no longer host, but still do work with my PC, Needed to get a couple of external hard drives, so checked PC world and they had them, but when i checked delivery schedule it was going to be nearly 2 weeks and they could not guarantee this, so checked to see if they had these at my local store and they did, so ordered 2 for me to collect. i Immediately went to collect these as it is getting close to a full UK lockdown and i was totally shocked at the amount of people still around as if nothing was wrong.

This is definitely going to be a struggle for a lot of companies. Expect delivery delays, products being sold out, and worse. Personally I think it's going to be hard on all of us, I know I'm already getting some cabin fever.

Many small businesses will never reopen.

In the UK

Debenhams
HMV
New Look
Arcadia Group (topshop, burtons etc.)

are all under Company Voluntary Arrangement ( CVA ), so will be hard for them to reopen

The fallout from Covid-19 sanctions will be felt for quite some time as I expect even once we're free to move around, social distancing will linger. It's changed how we interact with one another. Shortages here are slowly recovering.

We in the UK have not reached the peak yet, they say another 2 to 3 weeks , but people here cant understand and think its just a joke.

Local council closed all public car parks at places like then beaches etc., but idiots removed the bollards to use the car parks. they still go around in groups even though told not too

The office is in total lockdown now. Until last week we had the building staffed by 3 people all in separate rooms, now we're all at home with our families.

The switchboard is forwarded to our homes, and we're communicating with slack calls, with daily stand-ups via zoom (slack doesn't like too many in the room).

I don't yet know anyone personally who has been infected, but this is a lot more serious than anyone saw coming.

I'm wondering how long it will take before things that we took for granted are back to normal?

Guess I'm lucky the shops near me seem to have everything I need. I've not felt the need to hoard toilet paper, and have yet to run out. Although I brought a few rolls home from the office when I closed it.

Has anyone seen a drop off in orders?
I've actually sold a few more budget plans than normal, guess everyone wants a blog.

I'll probably see companies reduce the size of their plans soon.

No idea what it like in London, but in Northumberland many people are ignoring all the advice and doing as they please.

He (boris) is just trying to get everyone indoors to safety to minimise the dangers when the UK Peaks in about 2 to 3 weeks time.

STAY SAFE
