    Christmas Haul

    Someday:tm: That's awesome, I've really gotten into cooking the last few years as well. I spent a lot of our lockdown trying to get better at classic French recipes. Choux pastry can fuck a duck.

    Christmas Haul

    Oh, I didn't respond to this year yet. My gift got delayed by Santa, but in the end I got a book: Story on a Plate, and yes, in the past euh... 10 years I developed a love for cooking. And normally I would have created the most elaborate Christmas dinner for family and friends. But this year, it was just with 3: me, my gf, and my 4 year old stepdaughter. And 4 year olds have picky eating habbits, and a woman in her first trimester eats even more selectively. So yes, next Christmas, it will be at least 4 people in my little family :-)

    So, whats up

    It's alright. Actually kinda great, but I miss going out drinking and attending concerts.

    Christmas Haul

    I got a couple Amazon gift cards because gift-giving isn't really a thing these days. I do owe opals a drink someday when this vaccine is out there.

    Christmas Haul

    My Haul 2020 was quit short: A pocket knife and a garlic press from my boss. Both with the company logo. Some sweets and bucks from friends and family I got myself a new slatted frame for my bed, some network stuff to expand my 10Gbit Fiber LAN at home and I am in the process to buy a Threadripper based PC rig. I am waiting for the CES this month if/when the new ZEN3 based Threadripper will come out. IIRC this will be my first AMD based PC since my 486DX4/100, at least for my main rig. As most times when you are "grown up" and want nice staff you have to buy them yourself. This "grown up" stuff sucks.

    Christmas Haul

    Considering this thread is....17 years old, I'd be really interesting if somebody did compared how gifts changed from year to year for a given person. Or not.

    Christmas Haul

    I came here just for this, merry Christmas everyone. I got... A tie, some cuff links, some cologne. Two days of complete relaxation trumps any gift, though.

    So, whats up

    I got very lucky in Australia where we went to full lockdown and I still lost no work. Finances done stop for a virus I guess.

    So, whats up

    I've been lucky as well to not be super affected by everything. I work in eCommcerce and the companies done well even if they're assholes and have every one packed into the office still. Oh well.

    Christmas Haul

    'Sup nerds it's Christmas and today we got bombed! Shit's wild. We did a skype call just now with my family and got a few things opened up and then have a call with my wife's family a bit later today. So far we got; An Oculus Quest 2 from my brother. A big box of asian foods and candies from my brothers fiancé including a sushi making kit Simon Stålenhag's The Electric State artbook Root the Riverfolk expansion Flying Colors a book about flags from my wife Communist Cats card game A small set of National Park field notes books The Untitled Goose Game soundtrack on vinyl. Some other board game related knick nacks. Dice boxes, chit holders, etc. I'll see what more I get later if I don't get blown up!

    So, whats up

    I moved from media to IT a couple of years ago, doing the exact thing that I swore I wasn't going to do when I was 18. To add more irony to the job, I started off as a consultant, wanting to be away from code. Luckily enough my line of work enables me to work from home, so this year we spent the majority of the time working from home, as opposed to flying around Europe.

    So, whats up

    The Netherlands is moving towards a full lockdown. Question is if my line of work is considered essential. If it isn't then today is my last day work this year, otherwise it'll be one last busy week.

    So, whats up

    "My" company mainly develops software for planing/documenting FTTH/B Internet networks and we also use this software our self to plan/document such networks for our clients. Luckily since last year we were already in the process to add new office space in another building. That was accelerated which allowed to us spread out the workers so that more or less everyone got his/her own office. Additionally we already had an VPN access running which allowed, for example parents, an easy switch to work from home when needed. I as the admin had the glorious job to keep all this running. But today was my last workday for this year.

    So, whats up

    Luckily my job has not been affected by covid either, or at least not in the sense that it was ever in danger. I'm employed in an environmental lab and it seems many of our competitors have had problems with their personnel during this crisis thus all their work was sent over to the company where i work. It's an understatement that it has been hellishly busy for the last few months and i really look forward to a two week vacation in about a week. For me it's a plus that i see a lot of people daily and don't have to work from home. I think i would have gone raving mad if i would have had to work from home for several months with little opportunity to visit family/friends/events thanks to a nasty virus.

    Don't kink shame, but I was trying to do the dirtiest kink of them all...posting on this forum.

    So, whats up

    I second that! Luckily my family is AFAWK healthy and my job wasn´t effected by corona. (I even got an additional tax-free 1500€ Corona bonus!) Let us all hope next year will better then 2020.
