    I guess it's better to find out before the meeting. But it's better to not have them all fly out there (global warming, you know, all those jets leaving a mess in the sky) at all. When such things can be done by teleconference or Skype or whatever in the first place.

    And yes, it's good he's in quarantine. Too bad it's not permanent.

    Citrix. And some people have a laptop with VPN (lucky). I have to make do with remote access. Luckily I just finished upgrading my home PC. New motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new SSD. And I have 200MBPS internet.

    My boss just asked us all to make sure our remote access was working. I have a laptop with VPN access, so I could work from home a lot more but I don't really like it.

    There's no way they would let us work from home. The ramifications for customer account security would be tremendous (phones are not allowed on the floor partially for that reason), on top of the massive logistical issues involved. Working for a Fortune 100 company, I'm just hopeful that they have a financial support plan if it comes down to it.
