Just a thought. If more and more countries implement shut downs will the internet slow down or even crash. 
if you think about the amount who will be using the internet while in isolation, it’s a possibility. Just think we will have to start talking to each other again. 
 

I don't think the internet can slow down or crash😁 it'll probably just be local server parks. However I doubt you'll feel anything. Certain websites might see increased traffic though.

I had my test results back and they were positive for Covid-19.. So lucky that I just had the mild symptoms!! 

Hope everyone's doing well and keeping healthy! Haven't posted for a few months due to being busy and the lack of football, but had a gradual read through this thread. Crazy looking back at the f

Branson owns an island and a spaceship, but he wants aid from the government and he’s happy to hang his employees out to dry the man is callous.

The company who we cater for has now globally told all staff to work from home so as of tomorrow they have no catering needs. Very worrying times for me and my team!!!!

That’s a massive blow, I’m feeling it too, I work freelance and the work has totally dried up in the TV industry.

I'm glad we chose this past year to invest in blu-rays from CeX so we won't be affected if Netflix somehow hits peaks!

Blu-Rays. Pah! I'm still watching DVDs over here.

With hindsight, Disney+ is launching at the perfect time, with all this self-isolation going on. It's Disney's servers I fear for, as legions of bored children rewatch Cars for the 1,000,000,000,000th time.

I'm lucky enough to be able to work from home, but I need to manage a team of people remotely who are also all working from home - thats pretty challenging. I have 2 small kids but my wife currently does not work, so thankfully she can look after them during the day and leave me some peace to work in. This is going to be tough though for the foreseeable future!

The military on the other hand have committed 10,000 to help support the government in its fight against COVID-19. So actually more work for me is likely than less

Just lol if you're not using Just Eat for all your takeaways these days. They even do a "contactless delivery" option now if you pay by card!

Feel like I'm caught in a storm here as a teacher. Mixed messages from government. Not closing yet but not ruling it out. If so, when? Why are our institutions still open when the whole FECKING CONTINENT is closed??? How am I supposed to explain that to my students??

Kids scared. Parents scared and angry. Colleagues and managers at a loss. Exam schedules in bits. AAAAARGH

    • It wasn't just a few minutes. I'm pretty sure he got more time than Bahamboula did on the pitch for us didn't he? That was someone who seemed to have the consensus of the fans that he was worth a go for the small fee we had to pay. Paterson didn't look influential, he didn't look fit, he was bang average. 
    • Given Warnock's apparent opinions on fitness and his performances in those friendlies, I'm not at all shocked that we didn't sign him and I'm still relatively glad we didn't. He's not setting the league alight every week just as his team isn't and really, whose place does he take in the team? Watmore? Tav? Hernandez? Jones? I'm not sure I'd swap any of those players with Paterson.  Sounds like he was influential today and scored a cracking goal? Good for him. But he's done that before we had the chance to sign him too, not sure why it would change many opinions on whether we should have brought him in. 
    • So any of those players could have been sat on our bench yesterday but instead we only named six subs, including the non-league player who hasn't looked ready for this level, who gets in for no other reason than Warnock signed him.  No wonder they called themselves Warnock's rejects.   It must be utterly deflating to play for this club unless you're one of the favoured ones.  One of the least professionally run football clubs in the country.
