    You’ve got to admire the brilliant circular logic of

    a) not testing anyone who might have acquired this locally because you’re only testing those who’ve come from overseas (or been in direct contact with a positive case)
    b) claiming more draconian measures aren’t required because there’s insufficient evidence of community transmission

    That's it, the Government talks about these "scalable" measures. The general consensus amongst the population is its building up to a total shutdown. The feeling within Dept of Education is that it'll occur alongside the upcoming school holidays.

    The AFL fast tracking games and wanting to play multiple games also indicates they've received advice or guidance those kind of shutdown measures are coming.

    Then the Government wonder why the general public are acting irrationally distrusting of the information circulated and stockpiling.

    Gooberment looks like it's trying just to make it to school holidays.

    Been invited to a quiz night tomorrow and legit not sure if I should go. How is this 100 attendees thing enforced? Also have an immuno-compromised gf so leaning on the side of not going.

    What does it actually take to increase the number of remote desktops? Is it easily/quickly doable?

    It's not one of the services we provide but I think it's licences rather than capacity that's the issue atm. Licences are easy af if someone will pay. Capacity is more difficult but shouldn't be hard these days with cloud infrastructure to spin up some more servers. ATO is a wall of red tape though so probably needs to be approved by ScoMo's house sitter before we can even think about letting some more plebs work from home.

    Fair enough, lack of capacity is meant to be the hold up at my work. So was wondering what that actually meant.

    100 person limit will be interesting when we get back to work. We usually sit between 150-200 on weekends. Sometimes pushing 200+

    Wow the replies to this tweet sure are something. This picture is from Forbes NSW but apparently there’s been similar shenanigans going on in Ballarat, Bendigo and Gippsland in Victoria.

    Yeah it's been a massive part of the last few days. A guy I work with went home.

    I decided to stay due to just signing a lease for a 6 month rental and I won't be working in either country for the next few months it seems. I've got the savings but I guess it wasn't meant to be used like this.

    This week has been so mentally draining

    see you guys. Tassie is self-isolating all non-essential travellers for 14 days coming into this island. Thought we might do that. Come and get us commonwealth.

    heres hoping this is not too late already.

    If anyone in this country's government is following your advice on this matter then we are absolutely fucked.

    No offense, but you dont know me in real life. Judging my knowledge based of a internet chat forum which I merely use for light hearted banter and I guess a escape from talking to people I know about things I dont want to talk to them about (ie. random crazy ideas) is a bit naive. The reality of my life is. I own 3 rental properties, im building a 500k house. I own 2 cars and I have 6 figures in the bank. I made 20 000 in 10 days trading shares. I got massive help on the way but that didnt happen by pure luck or others intentions. I mostly did this myself. You dont achieve these things in life if you are a idiot. It may seem like a douchebag brag but I am not the person questioning my success, you are.

    I worked where I am for 2 and a bit years and today Im one of the higher up people in the organization. It wasnt because I told them about my pissdom idea. Its probably because in real life, I put across my good ideas, I work hard and smartly .I dont need this job, I dont have to do it, but I live the challenge and I do it very well.

    I have my own personal beliefs about life. It will never change and you will never change it. I do not believe we need to be curing old people of every issue that comes there way. I do not agree with this approach but I follow it til the day I die because quite simply, my opinion isnt relevant on this situation and im simply not going to put my own beliefs and ideas over the majority

    I do not beleive we need to bring others to there knees to protect ourselves and I do not believe the world hospital system simply cant cope with this. I know it can. I have more then MS Paint graphs behind me to know this. I believe in the people on the front lines. People want to paint them as weak, panicky people and I despise that to my very core. These people are strong, passionate and have capabilities beyond what we seemingly give them credit for.

    In thee end, I do know however we need to be better, be smarter and re adjust our ways of life to let this occur and thats something I truly believe we are capable of doing over time. I think we do it out of respect more than actual need myself. I may not see the need of it as much as others but that doesnt mean I dont know we can achieve it

    In the end, believe what you want. Your internet heroism wont matter to me or well anyone else in my real life. Thats why I seperate the two and always will. The deadset reality of my life is simple. I am successful and I have a ton of evidence to back that up. A family, wealth, people around that respect me and my ideas. If you want to ignore that and judge my success on 1 argument on a internet forum, I truly feel sorry for you
