    I don't hate you. I don't know you. You are an anonymous person that types nonsense on a message board. Your act is annoying. You could be my neighbor, you could be a 78 year old nun from my parish, you could be a 17 year old kid getting his rocks off by annoying a message board. Who the fuck knows. It doesnt matter.

    Unless you live in Kansas. You don't care. Just like no one cares about Illinois, unless you live here or you live next to the state.

    Your troll act is comical. Baseball, politics, religion...it doesnt matter. Its the same. 1.) Greg Hottakes - You read something, post it and ask question in the same tense if you were a 90 year old who never witnessed the industrial revolution. Then dig deeper with your logic, which is neither logic or insightful. I am conservative and typically vote republican. But for the love of god I dont start any debate with "I heard this from Rush Limbaugh. Or Trump tweeted this." If you cant separate being conservative with listening to the Orange Man and agreeing with everything he says then I dont know how you can be salvaged. 2.) Greg Remote-Google You ask others to lookup and provide facts that you yourself could easily put in a search engine and get the facts for. 3.) Mount Greenwood nostalgia - You flashback to your younger years at Brother Rice and playing stickball in the park. Has the neighborhood changed. Is Brother Rice still good at football. Is Suzy still mad at you. This can be solved by Googling, see #2.) 4.) You live in Kansas. No one outside of you gives a flying fuck what the residents of your backwater little town consider current events. No one cares about Kansas. I have relatives that live in Kansas. I dont call them and ask them their views of world affairs. Every person on this forum lives somewhere. We dont qualify everything with, Well the people of Downers Grove, Lisle, Oak Park, Orland Park, etc are asking .....X. My town is full of shit, just like the next one. Just like yours. Stop by qualifying that you live in Kansas. Everyone here knows you live there. No one cares about your zipcode.

    So what happens if a viable vaccine takes 10 years to develop. Do you re-evaluate your risk taking then. Or are you going to hunker down and live in a cave for 10 years. While I am hopeful of the existing vaccine research this is a new virus and its not a guarantee that it will be successful. I mean this is the only problem with waiting for a cure. I am socially distancing and doing my part. My job is already 100 percent remote and I am part of most companies critical infrastructure. A lot of people are not. My neighbors are acting like its spring break. One of them had a bonfire in his front yard and I counted over 50 people drinking and not socially distancing. I don't see how this is going to be sustainable especially here were we really only have a few months of golden weather. I think is all going to become bedlam in the next few weeks. Next Saturday is going to be 80+.

    So Pritzker cited that if we opened up in may we would get hit with a second wave. So explain this to me. How is opening up in June or July going to change the numbers. We are seeing the virus spread in warmer climates. The study says that due to not having a vaccine the minute we open up the virus will skyrocket again. In fact the model he is using has more deaths than NY which makes zero sense. So how exactly do we open up if that's the case ever, until there is a vaccine.

    On paper. My guess is China still leads this.

    So we bunker in place for 3 months. Then we come out of the bunker and wave 2 hits. then we bunker in place for another 3 months. then we come out and wave 3 hits. I don't see how this scales to tell people to bunker for the next year. Is this the plan. One year of isolation?

    This isn't even close to being true. For most companies they have private connectivity between their locations and datacenters/cloud providers. Its typically dedicated and not using a shared medium like the internet. The service providers peering links and inter-connects are under massive stress right now. Most companies build out for about 35% max utilization for remote services. Now you have taken their entire population and have popped them off at home. So besides the obvious remote access connection bandwidth, you have remote meetings, people are going to binge more Netflix/hulu/etc, and of course game. I have been pretty busy building out capacity over the last week to keep up with demand. The internet is built around a best-effort model. Its not built like your enterprise wan at your company. Nanog has been talking about this since we have seen the network traffic invert.

    How you survived the interview process is beyond me. Hopefully they allow the byo peripherals that you plan on plugging into their production equipment. If they don't and you insist on playing that game you wont have to worry about the cost of parking and the metra. You will be back home where its safe.

    My guess is that your performance might be a bit better if you didn't have to bang through the Chinese great firewall. If anything that will get a nice stress test. For Zoom If their front end is truly cloud native then they can scale laterally until the cows come home. Business continuity is about to get a stress across all industries. Most remote access services are set for a subset of the actual population of the company due to historical numbers. If its just licensing then that's easy. Pay more and unlock more user licenses. Now if they happened to have sized either physical equipment and say bandwidth on their circuits to a subset of their user population then this is about to get stressful for some people in corporate America. I just had a meeting with a customer that is running their egress internet traffic at about 85% normally. We have been begging them to upgrade for years. But why do that when you can push the equipment to the brink and survive. Well we gave them a pretty sad state of what is about to happen when they point their large user population back inwards when they all work from home. Good luck, god speed to you.

    Okay one point of parliamentary procedure in the forum Jack. Its okay to revise part of a post to fix a typo. Its hard however to follow a line of thought when you go back to posts to add about 90% more content. Shadow editing makes your posts almost impossible to follow and read.

    Lead the way...I will hopefully see you in the future times, after the sick sick time.

    You are a walking contradiction. You were just advocating mandatory quarantine and now you will wait and see until more info comes out.
