15:40:08@ArtemusMaximus:tang.ents.caArtemusMaximusnah, we just need Gord to finish the robot, that'll do it
15:40:56@gerardocaamanowalton:tang.ents.cagerardocaamanowaltonMaybe it will also attract attention and get more people to join hahaha
15:42:21@so_:tang.ents.camikebDoomsday DIY projects up 600%
15:42:47@so_:tang.ents.camikebalthough I'm resisting buying any more tools at the moment :)
15:43:46@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.camikeb: fyi. I cancelled my membership in paym.ents.ca but it turns out if you dont go into PayPal and cancel the preauth the money is still sent. I had to put mine hold cause I am fine of the unfortunate financial casualties and got laid off for 2 months.

Do you need a refund on that, or is it sorted?
15:45:28@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.caNa. I am not gonna worry about it. I am gonna just play it by ear. I am hoping that things get back up and running soon.
15:46:14@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.caI too have to resist my old shopping behaviors as a result.
15:46:36@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.caResult of the virus. Not my membership.
15:46:39@so_:tang.ents.camikebYeah, we'll credit it to when we reopen
15:47:29@so_:tang.ents.camikebAmazon has gone mostly essentials only, so easy to not shop on there, plus there is a bit of a anti-Amazon pressure at the moment as their workplaces are trying to improve working conditions and unionize in some places
15:47:55@so_:tang.ents.camikebSo no 1-2 day deliveries makes 3 week purchasing not so attractive
15:48:31@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.ca Wow. I guess that's good but I selfishly will miss good deals at the expense of their workforce.

15:50:29@so_:tang.ents.camikebI have a few friends in the FBezos camp, not sure how dedicated I am to trying that. Edmonton Chamber of Commerce has a dubious survey out yesterday that up to 50% of businesses might close, too.

15:59:18@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.ca

Ya. Obviously on a much smaller scale our office is showing a complete lack of responsibility and Bezos like behavior. Management doesn't know what to do and are leaving the store open cause they want money and dont care about worker health. People that got played off was due to money not their concern for health.

I strongly suspect the place I work will fold in 3 months or at least be severely crippled.

Sorry to hear that Gord, hope everything works out
21:31:49@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.caOne way or another it will work out in my favor. But fir now it isn7ncertain times as to what I do.
21:31:58@Gord:tang.ents.ca@Gord:tang.ents.caBut thanks for the concern
