    I think spikers had an approach with a light outside the door so the family knew he was do not disturb. Right now closing the door works, but once toddler spawn can open the door its going to be different. Maybe a lock or the light.. but shes also in daycare full time, so its really only after 4 or before 8 its an issue.

    Looks like wfh is my new reality as we are closing the space where my office is. Only hotel space at alternate locations.
    Sort of, no light, just closed door. If they need me they can send me a message or knock on the door. They know that they can't just enter my office if it is closed. Most of the time when they knock they can just come in, but there are times when I am in video calls with various VPs and our CEO that would be bad timing should one of them just walk into frame.

    Having said that, all of our leadership team has gotten the message out that it's fine if it happens, they know the current situation is less than ideal. I was giving a report to my VP and my dog decided he wanted attention and jumped up beside me to get pets. Of course everyone saw him and got excited, even my VP. I then had to take 2-3 mins to tell everyone about him, how old he was, what breed, etc, etc. VP offered to send me a GC to get the "good boy" a treat lol

    WFH 100%, and likely until September or when everyone is vaccinated. Not missing the travel, but I do miss it not taking forever to get a simple answer that used to be a short stroll or roll your chair 10 feet for. Now it's send a teams message or schedule a call.

    Fuck yeah man.. Kenny my business partner has assumed the management of the store and I am running the business from home. It is great! I am getting more stuff done now on the back end of things and working on new stuff that I never had time for when I was sitting on the counter all the time, plus I can handle all the e-mail correspondence and forum activities which anyone who used to try and get hold of me can confirm I was impossible to reach. It actually has helped immensely!

    Your wheel visualizer is probably the best I’ve seen.

    Thanks I appreciate that... I can't take claim for it as it is subscription based but those things are impossible for a small company like mine to build and maintain so we use what we can and that one seems too do a decent enough job.
