Loc: England... Then Left A Bit
I don't know how to import WhatsApp videos to this forum, but if I did, I would.

I work for a shitty little IT company in Swansea. We are nothing in the global scheme of things, but one of our customers is the local health board.


Me and Mrs Fluff are both (relatively) safe at home, but my colleagues, my mates, are risking their health to build the Swansea Nightingale Hospital

These guys are all younger than our kids, and in the past I have regarded them as a necessary annoyance; but I am as proud of them today as was of our kids when they graduated.

Sucks that the building is required... But cool that it's being done as it is.

To be fair... I took quite a bit of time off, and when I came back... People like yourself post quite a bit less... o.0

Call me stupid.
Call me reckless.
I have said before that I really don't care what you think....

I went to work today!


I am, by far, the best fibre-optic engineer / network programmer in our company: What I can do in a day would take a "not-as-good-as-me" installer at least 3 days.

I was asked, with the genuine proviso that "nobody will think the less of you if you say no" if I would be prepared to sort-out the fibre network at our local Nightingale hospital.

I agreed, simply because of who the end-client was.


I arrived; wearing a N95 mask & gloves, and was met by the site manager, who walked me through the site while shouting "back the fuck off" at other tradesmen.
He put a "do not enter this room" sign on every place I needed to be.

It's done: The fibres are terminated & tested. The managed switches are correctly programmed. I've done my bit.


I appreciate that I have put both myself & Mrs Fluff at risk by doing this, but after a long conversation, we agreed that the ends justified the means: Our emergency hospital will be available 2 days before it would have been otherwise.


Please folks, don't be like me:
Not many of the "oldies" post here anymore, but I loved arguing with you - be safe - stay at home.

My work has not yet shut down, nor do I think it will. I'm still doing overtime. Hell, I work tomorrow.

Someone I know has finally been diagnosed with Covid... It's here. It's real.

It sucks.
