Lockdown week 1

Pre-lockdown memory, juxtaposition, cathedral of St. Stephen

It started shortly after my last post, Not in lockdown . Delta variant attempting to run havoc through the antipodes, detected in Brisbane.

Apart from the initial lockdown last year, Queensland has been largely spared from long lockdowns. Victoria and now New South Wales are shouldering the burden.

What a frustrating working from home week!

Monday
The cloud based telephony software was upgraded. The adjusted functionality resulted in me missing a huge number of calls during my 2.75 hours of loop time.

The GP called us in early for the second Pfizer vaccination. I took an hour off work.

Tuesday
After working for about two hours, flu symptoms started. No more work for me today. By the evening a fever was making me feel decidedly uncomfortable.

Wednesday
Feeling 80% of my usual self, I spent the day catching up on unfinished work until the database went down around 3:30 pm.

Thursday
A reasonably productive day.

Friday
A fault in the Woolloongabba national broadband node resulted in an Internet outage of about one hour before lunch time. This resulted in no phone, email, Teams or database access.

We will find out on Sunday if the lockdown is being extended.

  1. Although the Covid virus sounds deadly, it primarily afflicts the older and the weak. I don’t know why the strong vast middle section of the population is concerned about it. We’ve already seen a great recovery rate for the middle. Again, this is ridiculous. Sweden doesn’t give a F. why should I?

  2. We are now fully open and the Americans (fully vaccinated) will be allowed in on Monday. So we are keeping fingers crossed that we will not be consigned to living in the Island as it was for 17 months. People are really not all that careful.
