The lock down has been extended until 20 May and events are cancelled through 01 September.
SCHOOLS AND DAY CARES ARE OPENING ON MONDAY 11 MAY!! !
OMG OMG OMG OMG
But first the news:
- Dutch reopen primary schools and daycare but ban events until September
- Teachers’ Group Unhappy About Schools Reopening
- The Corona Check app is now available to the Dutch public
To be clear, that app ^ is not the official one from the Dutch government. THAT one will probably not make it past all the red tape of actually CHOOSING the technology before the pandemic is over in the next two years.
Speaking of magicians…
There was this twitter chain going around a few weeks back where DevRel people were posting their pre-DevRel non-Software jobs and this was mine:
After being tagged by @mary_grace here are 5 of my previous jobs + 5 tags:— K Rain Leander [they / them] (@rainleander) March 29, 2020
* @Windows Support
* Magician's Assistant
* Freelance Developer
* Sales Assistant
* Dancer / Choreographer / Director@jillrouleau @DEGoodmanWilson @FloorDrees @davidgsIoT @nithyaruff
A few people asked for stories and pics and such, but as it was 2007 and phones didn’t conveniently take pictures yet, I thought there was no evidence whatsoever.
Further, Nick Comis is not on twitter, I could not tag him and didn’t send him a message on his facebook page or otherwise communicate, but the universe is wonky and yesterday he SENDS ME PICS FROM SAID ASSISTANCESHIP.
Ignore that totally skeptical expression, “…I know how you’re doing that….”
If you haven’t read my bio on openstack.org, go read it now.
“…disappeared within a box stuffed with swords….”
And a SPEAR.
There was also a SPEAR that went through the center from top through to stick out the bottom.
I call this expression “OMG THIS IS SO COOL! No, WAIT, be COOL, Leander. This is totally no big deal. Plus there are people WATCHING and now they believe in MAGIC!”
I gotta say between finding these gems and yesterday’s announcement that daycares and schools are opening in a little over two weeks, I feel like I can do ANYTHING.
Sure, the lock down is going to go another thirty days.
We’re moving forward, Warriors.
