Day 5 of Lockdown

No cough; No fever on the home front.

The Big Clean

Part of our family plans to try to minimise exposure or spread of this disease is cleanliness. Kim has been scrubbing and bleaching every surface - the oven got the full treatment this morning.
She also managed to get me to fully take apart my computer boxen1 and clean them inside out - including removing the covers and vacuuming inside (which did dislodge a RAM module on my Linux box and cause 5 minutes of consternation when it just bleeped at me 4 times upon Power On).

The net result is that I also did a DSE assessment and my monitor has been raised to eye level and everything is all set up for my home office - My purchase of a KVM Switch a couple of years ago was inspired!

Interesting article on technology:

Where did SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) come from?

Pharyngula

I've been seeing some wild speculation that this pandemic is the product of genetic engineering — that it’s a biowarfare weapon that escaped from a lab somewhere. This is nonsense.



Shopping

I think the spirit of shoppers is now good - these queues aren't fun, obviously, but everyone seems accepting of them.

  1. If the plural of Ox is Oxen, then the plural of Box should be Boxen, no?
