    Effective stuff tramadol. I played a final on tramadol for a wrist injury that required surgery. Easy to see how people with chronic injury become addicted to it.

    Well, that's the kicker innit? If everyone noticed it twisting their thoughts it'd never get out of trials, yet some non-trivial percentage of users experience the effect. The list of withdrawn drugs is pretty long...

    Tramadol just gave me the full time zz's + stomach destruction.

    fentanyl was like patch mode heroin, perma nothing but chill, partly due to the lack of short term memory.

    oxy/endone standard couch drooly mode

    Saw the news yesterday, checked the domain list, and none of my domains are affected. Neat.

    My old man was on it for carpal tunnel as well and said it was fine so yeah, different effects even within the same family.

    Discussions like this remind me how lucky I am that my issues are relatively minor!

    Me: I've got 5+ years wrangling more Macs than your client uses, with the same tools your client uses.
    recruiter operating out of another state who can't even get my common as fuck name right: oh but you haven't done a 3 day "how to click button on Mac" course from apple, not interested


    edit: to be fair, it might not be the recruiter insisting on this, it may be the client

    Last recruiter I dealt with literally thanked me for applying for a role, because their whole firm had zero comprehension about any of the role.

    I've just come to the conclusion that 99% of humanity is doing a job that's well beyond their capabilities. Peter Principle to its ultimate conclusion.

    I've seen

    1 print "Get fucked"
    2 goto 1

    Have more intelligence then the average recruiter.

    Poor coding, you haven't left yourself any room to add additional lines of profanities.

    Anyone had travel bans imposed by their employer yet?
    We're looking at possible travel bans but it's yet to be decided on and I'm not sure if that is just plane travel or all travel.

    Yep. All international travel has been stopped, travel within Australia via plane is only if approved by high level manager. Bunch of stuff about communicable diseases being bandied about as well.

    The next 3 months are going to sort out those who have competent remote management / VPN / work from home / teleconferencing from those who don't. :lol:

    We're gonna struggle.

    We're a public facing industry.
    We can do some of it via phone but you can only do so much of that before if becomes unmanageable.

    we had a ban on travel to/from china the day after the first news reports. since that's spread to be more comprehensive.

    they haven't stopped us seeing customers though.


    honestly, storm in a teacup/mountain of a molehill/media fake news/beatup etc.
