Human Malware
« on: March 26, 2020, 04:12:45 PM »

Human Malware - or COVID - 19.

Firstly, how are you all going? Ok? Self isolating and crunching away??  :wavey2:

Secondly, has it affected your BOINC crunching?
I've been thinking about cutting back to save money. I'm still employed thankfully but that could easily change as my company did say there would be more redundancies in Mar/Apr.
It's got me paying down debt like never before, saving with what's left and praying to keep my job.

The great pandemic of 2020. Going down in history :)

Take care team mates!  :cheers:

I'm doing well, thanks Chooka.
Though, typical of the type of luck normal to me, I've managed to catch something called pharyngitis. and ended up in self-isolation for two weeks as per my doctor's orders.

How many people could catch a really bad bacterial infection in the middle of a viral pandemic? 🤦‍♀️

We are doing OK. Karen is more social than I am and is starting to get cabin fever because she cannot get out and about. California is closed for business.

Have reduced crunching a bit but still have 20 RPi's at Universe and 6 servers at F@H. Will reduce the F@H today as the large I/O files eat all of my bandwidth and I have to pause them to watch a movie, etc. Plus have lost about $140K in equities.

To quote a line from the Stone Ponies ... "The new hard times are here."

Hang in there mates.

Hi Chooka,

I'm going Ok.

Self isolating and crunching away??
Yes, that is what I've been doing.
Also been tidying & vacuuming, washing the car, mowing the lawn, watering the garden, reading and listening to music.

Secondly, has it affected your BOINC crunching?
I've been crunching more lately.
Normally I'm at work during the day and my computers are turned off, but now I have them on all day.
I've mainly been doing Folding@home though, not as much BOINC.

Hope everyone stays well, take care.

I am still well and my brother and his wife from Canada have been staying with me.  My lease ran out and I have moved to Canberra to stay with my Daughter and her family as the live in Educator and child minder for my 8 and 9 year old Grandchildren.  For a while anyway,  I just got here tonight and was off my computers for two days in a row the longest seperation for years.  It will take a while for me to catch up on all that has been happening inmy small little cload life.

Hope all are doing well.   :smilefriday
