How is everyone holding up during this mess of 2020?

Just thought id say Hi and start a thread where everyone can post how they are doing both good and bad (as they see fit).

It has been years since I have been here and the last time I was active with most of you was back in CoH/V. I have had many ups and downs as all of us have had. Currently working on running a LARP called Ragnarok, with friends and family, while finishing my Degree in Mechanical Engineering. My wife had a stroke and was let go as a teacher from her school district after 20 years of work. Upside she is recovering and getting to focus on her artwork.

How are all of you doing?

Destruction is best left to proffesionals

The company my old

The company my old manufacturing dayjob was at folded back in January, and I tried to increase my taxibotting to pick up the slack. But then everything "non-essential" shut down, and the taxibotting hasn't picked up enough. So now I've just started working at the world's largest river and bookstore. I've survived 41 hours over four days so far. ^_^

Hey Thorgar - thanks for

Hey Thorgar - thanks for starting a conversation about this. Personally, all of the downtime has allowed me to really focus on volunteering for this game. So I jump on the forums as much as I can, but most of the time I'm working like crazy to build Titan City! Glad to hear that your wife is doing better and hope you stay in touch!

I got a job at a local

I got a job at a local McDonalds... I needed the money desperately and my new location isn't thick with jobs other than food service. Fortunately my family is connected with the franchise owner (my dad used to be his VP) so I OK. I haven't been yanked to do their IT stuff - yet.

Senior Developer/Project Manager/Co-Founder... and then some.

I recently built a new server

I recently built a new server running 2 old E-2640 processors and about 24 TB of storage - even set it up to load balance across 2 NiCs (network ports) and was messing with multichannel bonding - been running my CoX server while I wait for this game to come out. I am wanting something to do other then wacking Orcs in WoW and mobs in random survival games (currently Valhiem)

As to date I have kicked in over 1k on the development of few games (Wrath of the Righteous (300ish), Chronicles of Elyria (rip 500$ gone). Pantheon (200$),Dead Matter (60$), Dungeon no Dungeon (30$),Ship of Heroes (50$), City of Titans (50$) and am considering raising my pledge here to Geocacher just to perhaps get a better idea of where the world actually is at this point.
I mean I work as IT and have been improving my knowledge of Azure workload migration recently - though I must admit I think I just do not have a head for actual programming because I was never good with languages in general - so the powershell stuff often makes me thing "thank god I can google that later"

Also trying to hire people to work IT in the public service....you would be suprised how hard it is to find good people.

Please don't let me discourage you from contributing more, because more money = more progress, but in fairness I'll say that you won't learn much more about the game state from a higher level contribution. Though it's entirely possible that the backer-designed exploration badges might surface at some point fairly soon, since a good part of the city is now in place. I'm not sure how they're planning to handle people placing those. But if you want to see the city, the video gives a good idea of things.

Doesn't surprise me at all: A) good people in any discipline are hard to find, and B) IT tends to get dumped on a lot, so it makes sense for people to look for alternative jobs that are less exposed to hostile users.

Meh as shown in my prior post

Meh as shown in my prior post - it wouldn't be the first time I tossed money around recklessly.
