Our office is half empty most of the time anyway, as people randomly choose to work from home every day. Standup is like the Brady bunch...

I suspect in the next couple of weeks the office will be completely empty.

It starts getting more fun when your usual remote access user peak is around 3000 and it goes from there to 15000 in a couple of weeks (for China).

At a typically horrible soft play called Funplex. Noticed the very odd name they'd given their food counter. Just realised it's a very niche pun for the benefit of, presumably, a nerdy owner.

Whoever it is, criticising the food for being shit at soft play is like having a go at the sun for being hot.

In their defense, the review does mention they're not expecting haute cuisine. It shouldn't take 60 minutes to fry some chips (and then to serve them cold!) I'm offended on behalf of that person. A waste of good potatoes.

Yeah, not really convinced that there's anything deeper behind it than it's just a habit based on what you first got used to.

Also invert-x is very often an option but I don't believe I have ever encountered a single person that uses it.

People who don't invert Y are worse than baddies.

Star Wars arcade (1983) is probably the earliest example of invert in my mind.

Those marble races are ace! Have you seen them on YouTube? It's a professional outfit with stadiums, professional commentary and everything!

Jelles marble run... That's the one. Have a look for it. It's great.

My son has recently got into watching these diecast car races

Thanks guys, bit of a mismash meal as I couldn't get everything I wanted, but making do. Watched Hobbs and Shaw earlier and probably another film later.

As an extra bonus I guess, my Son is back from uni on Monday, unsure what will happen about his job in a pub (hopefully today's announcement will apply to him)

I hope you manage to get some reassurance on that and also get to play some X-Wing with him!
