I’ve been a web designer, who has worked from home the past 7 years. I just earned a BS degree in cybersecurity and am now in a masters program for cybersecurity technology. This, in hopes of landing a job as a cybersecurity analyst somewhere.

It’s long since been in the back of my mind that I will have to readjust to shitting on the outside.
Well my company that makes cybersecurity software is essentially all remote now. I don't think that's unusual. You can probably keep shitting at home.

But they're literally tracing cases to college house parties.
Yes. As I understand it - both from news stories and from anecdotal comments from my daughter - people aren't blaming dorm living nearly as much as they are blaming house parties.
Which provides cover for the type of transmission that would happen in a dorm even without house parties.

Niiiice. Looks like Solarwinds would be some of your competition.

You know, and I’m sure this is typically true in the larger continuing education sense, but holy shit have the backgrounder & problem/solution white papers written about these various MSPs, appliances, etc helped augment the required readings during my undergrad and now graduate studies.

I’m very interested in this subject. The European Union and its GDPR is lightyears ahead of where we should be as a society that values and protects its citizens’ personal data privacy rights.

On a related note, the same day my new boss emphasized how we have to get more billable hours (which means going into different clients' homes), I received a group e-mail from the company's CEO saying how these are scary, desperate times, so we should not travel for the holidays.

Wife woke up feeling exhausted and with post-nasal drip and is teetering on being pretty freaked out, mostly because she’s worried about the rest of us. No fever, which is good. But it’s Sunday and it’s difficult to find a test today. I moved a couple of days worth of stuff out of my room so I can stay away from her just to make her feel better about the situation because if she has it and is symptomatic I’m sure the collateral damage has already been done.

Do you have CVS? Got my son in quick on Friday, and got a text this morning that he's negative.

It's winter. Folks get sick anyway. She's good. Positive vibes. Kid had headache and needed a nap yesterday, which my kid almost never requests. All good though. Don't even need a test to cause he hasn't really been anywhere in more than a month.

She told me she had a line on a place and asked for her wallet so she could enter whatever she needed to enter to pre-reg and then she fell back asleep. So I told/texted the kids the what’s up and went for a long run and got back and she’s still asleep.

Could it be symptoms from getting the vaccine? Hope she is feeling better soon.

Could she just be tanking for a day to get some quiet? I'd like to do that.

RE: the vaccine, I didn’t think it worked that way but I dunno

She has an appt late this afternoon at a CVS to get tested.

Beyond the immediate selfish concern for her and me and the kids, if she’s positive then she picked it up at work which means someone else there is sick which means that their public vaccine rollout this week could be in big trouble.

You can't catch COVID from the vaccine, but my understanding is that your body could feel some symptoms, which are related to your body making antibodies for the virus.

I can confirm. Especially dose 2. Not so much the first. Nothing immediate and for about 12-18 hrs about 1 day out for me. Nothing nasal and not much lethargy. Chills.

I'm hearing some ill effects off dose 2 from people. I'd say isolate and give it a day or two.

So, our across the street good friends, who we've been playing D&D with and who comes over for late night firepit with my son...

They had a friend of the daughter come up with a positive last week. We bailed on an outdoor football viewing party on Sunday, which wasn't a huge deal, but was a bit of a bummer.

Anyways, they all got tested and we just found out all is good.

Still, just goes to show how razor thin these margins are.

As one who works from home anyway, my lifestyle is not really effected.

And realistically - other than the outdoor gatherings... this is pretty much the way things have been since the summer.

Same. Every time things are loosened or made more strict here, it doesn't affect my personal day-to-day at all.

That's awesome.
