Cool, you've already got the bowl for it too.

Think I'm going to stay in the US, it's the same job and a transatlantic move in the middle of all this sounds like a nightmare.  :lol:  Are estate agents even open?

All right Troll, what did Trump offer you?
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

:lol: no one tracks that. laptop/desktop level definitely get property tags etc, but individual hard drives? Assume you have a way of remote scanning to get manf/model numbers off individual machines into a large report though.

edit: okay maybe backblaze and similar track it.

Visa extension applied for.  As soon as it's approved there's a week of clinical lab training, then months of testing people's sputum to look forward to.

My unemployment came through yesterday. Not anywhere near what I was making, but definitely takes a big stress off my shoulders (luckily at my brewery we claim all tips). Not spending money on anything else other than food these days anyway so it'll be easy to save it up to pay bills.

Got a contract extension until the end of April. Comes with a massive reduction in my rate but that’s understandable given the pressure everyone is under.

Also need something to do in the day.

how massive out of interest?  few people i know been hit with 20-25%, i'm expecting similar asap if not the actual bullet
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

40%, but even the resulting rate is more than enough to live on. And I was half expecting to be let go.

This is why I keep my costs down. Probably take it too far TBH, but it pays off in times like this.

I've signed a 12 month contract extension with no change in the terms I was expecting which is nice.

Ah, I mean I do stress out for sure, but the nature of contracting is to be expecting gaps. Usually they're just caused by a contract ending mind, rather than a global pandemic.

The most annoying thing is not being able to fully enjoy what you earn, because I feel I need such a big buffer.

Obviously I'm very lucky to be able to make that decision anyway.

Ian's a contractor though.  Most of my mates have been given the heave ho so even a 40% deduction isn't that bad.  Proves IR35 is bullshit though.

I feel lucky to still have my job at full pay, with overtime on offer. My girlfriend lost her job, and is applying for Universal Credit.

I actually kind of get lucky enough with jobs in general bar one terrible job last summer with 8:30am to 11:30pm days for about a month. Its quite good though compared to a normal job with like loads of people starting at my level at the same time so you make mates quickly. Highlight so far has been three weeks in the exotic lands of Macclesfield :lol:
