  1. Someone made a pretty cool concept of the PS5 UI based on details from Cerny's interview from 2019 and some patents and what not:
  2. @Walker: Don't lose hope buddy.
  3. Complete lockdown of the nation for 21 days from midnight. Need to stock-up on things.
  4. So, here's my organisation's story: So, AFAIK up until Friday, there were two directives released by the government: - Only 50% of workforce to be in the office at any given point of time; and/or - Only Essential Services organisations can function completely until 31st March 2020. There was a notice put up on Friday evening that at the centre we work in, we have 3,700+ employees and that the organisation has worked hard with the WFM and HR to ensure only 50% of that number are present in office at any given time. Obviously, I can't validate that in its entirety in any way, but I gladly take the word on that notice and commend the company that they implemented it. Good job! However, what I do not understand is, God knows how, but apparently the higher-ups have managed to term the organisation as "an organisation that provides essential services." Yes, we are in the IT-BPM (fancy way of saying BPO, these days) sector, but at the core of it, we're not providing any 'essential service' to anyone, for crying out loud. Certainly not in the centre/office we work at. When questioned, our managers (and even their managers) are only giving an answer that we are an essential services organisation. Probably told to them by their higher-ups. I was very close to tweeting about the situation (I still might, maybe), but I decided to do some digging first. So, Nasscom is the apex body for the IT-BPM sector in India and this 'conversation' happened today: So, just because we're tagged as IT-BPM, I guess we're stuck. There are quite a few employees who have started working from home, but not all (including me). Now, our parents (my wife's parents as well, since we work in the same company) are concerned and good luck to us trying to explain the whole IT-BPM/Essential Services dilemma to them. Let's see what happens on Monday. Will keep you guys posted.
  5. 2-day event now. To be hosted by Gronk. More details on the upcoming SmackDown.
  6. 64-year-old male in Mumbai dies at Kasturba Hospital. First death in Maharashtra. Total deaths in India now at 3.
  7. "In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place. However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view. Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania." Just won't feel like WrestleMania at all. 😞 But, it's for the best, obviously. Could've just postponed it, I think.
  8. Update: He's absolutely recovered now. Symptoms are gone as well. The doctor has given it in writing that no further tests/investigation is necessary. He just advised rest for another day for him to get to 100% and he can resume work, too. Thank God, it turned out okay.
  9. Just thought I'd post this here. A very close friend of mine (like really, really close - he was the Best Man for my wedding) complained about a very high fever since about 11:00 AM. As the day passed, he complained about throat ache and body ache, too (he's 28 years old, so he's obviously never had this kind of a body ache, which was something he felt mostly in his joints). Went to the local physician in the evening and they gave an injection and some medicines. Advised to rest for a day and if the fever doesn't reduce, the doctor said that they will then do a blood test. He's lost his appetite and is barely eating or drinking juice or anything much. For now, I guess, we'll follow what the doctor is suggesting. I met him in the evening and he's not looking great. However, the fever has reduced (thankfully). He still has pain in his joints, though and is coughing quite a lot. We were joking about various things (Coronavirus and everything, to keep the mood light since his Mom hasn't seemed to take this well enough) but I truly hope it's nothing serious.
  10. Good match overall. Liverpool lost it in ET. The final ball was severely lacking. Obviously, Atletico were the best parked bus in the 2nd half of ET. 😁 Meanwhile, Also, things seem to be just getting serious. 😞
  11. Practically over for Pool now. 2nd half of ET to come. Don't see them scoring 2 to overcome this.
  12. LFC vs ATL is in ET now. 2-1 (agg: 2-2), at the moment.
