Re: Coronavirus - how's everyone doing?

Already back in the office. Only difference is less people allowed in meeting rooms (so less effective meeting rooms) and no visitors, so more VTC.

Re: Coronavirus - how's everyone doing?

If you are in a mess, like the US, then it's really the only option to bring it under control. As far as Australia is concerned, the example of NSW and VIC has shown that we were on the ragged edge...

Totally reprehensible attitude. What you are saying is that you want many more grannies to die. Millions of them in fact. Eradication is the only solution we know will work, but thanks to...

That's never going to work. but the question of how you make it happen when infection is front of people's mind is a difficult one :

It won't save anyone, but it does give them the excuse to do it 'better', something Dutton will be all across like a rash.

Re: British Engineer to Australia

Nope, you have to select one (pick the best bet for you).

And is it 75 points with the language ones? I assume yes.

Re: British Engineer to Australia

Doing the english test to get extra points is a well worn path, and if you are a native speaker and at your education level, not that difficult.
I'd say, with your experience, etc. what I'd do is...

Re: Online deliveries?

I've had things take over 10 days when they should have been 2. Auspost haven't covered themselves in glory, and just when they had the opportunity to permanently grow their business.

The additions that google and apple are adding are for their own, privacy protecting, approach. It won't change the aussie government's app, or how it will not be running.

Re: Coronavirus - how's everyone doing?

For me, work is likely to reduce its restrictions next week (working from work, not home). So no matter what the states might say, things are trend back towards normal at its own pace.
