    I used to do all my studying at home standing up. Especially if I needed to focus on all nighter essays etc. But it would kill my feet by morning so yeah I think that part is important! Maybe try a knobbly mat so pressure points can move around. I used an old fashioned drawing desk. Still have it, think I need to clear space to use it again, my back is pretty bad atm but I'm also waiting on a connector so I can get a screen set up and not peer down all the time.

    Probably meant definite.

    Most of the wholesalers seem to have quite localised delivery so that would be the first way to filter.

    Pretty sure my boss dials in from his bed... Thinks it's the only quiet space rather than the only space. The window into various people's worlds is fascinating and odd.
    I don't video meet. Audio only.

    Primark. But whatever the brand I find the idea of £10 jeans questionable. Who's getting paid?

    Half of parents on low incomes with children eligible for free school meals said they had not yet received any substitute meals to keep their children fed, despite government promises to provide food vouchers or parcels. Around 830,000 children are therefore likely to be going without daily sustenance.
    ...
    On 21 March the government instructed people at greater risk of Covid-19 to stay in their homes and self-isolate for 12 weeks. It said it would contact 1.5 million people in this category and set up a system with local authorities, voluntary organisations and business to deliver food parcels to the homes of those who lacked family support. ... the Guardian understands that the scheme is not yet running and will take a few weeks to scale up to supplying food to 400,000 people. The Food Foundation has calculated that more than twice that number – 860,000 people who fall into the medically vulnerable category – were suffering from food insecurity even before the crisis.

    Pretty desperate situation for huge numbers of people in this country.

    Sharepoint question:
    There is a sharepoint folder which automatically collects all files posted to a Team.
    Can I keep a Sharepoint folder on my desktop using OneDrive? So I have a desktop folder which always has files associated with a Team?

    Do they last? Do you think about the supply chain? This isn't a snipe, I'm genuinely curious whether it's something you consider. If the £10 jeans last longer than the more expensive ones then they're probably better in terms of environmental impact.
