My job is safe through Sept, 30 bc of the CARES act. One of the provisions of accepting the $$ was that there would be no layoffs until then.
After that we do expect some furloughs. How many depends on whether airline travel has come back and to what degree,
Our union leadership is currently better than it has been in a while, but the virus is going to lessen our bargaining position.
My job is so odd right now as there is no service whatsoever and very little interaction with passengers (on the under 4 hr flights that I work).
I'm pretty confident that my job will still be there after Oct, 1, but it's out of my hands.
We are all trying to be optimistic these days.

Well this sucks...

"WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max launched today with a couple of conspicuous absences from the list of supported devices — Max is not yet available on Roku or Amazon’s Fire TV.
WarnerMedia’s vice president of communications Chris Willard told USA Today that “there is no deal in place” to bring the service to those platforms."

I just got one. My doc is doing telemed for the foreseeable future, so this and my BP reader helps a lot.

Also, Dogs, I just got to my SJC hotel and it's freaking 🔥🔥🔥 here.

I was clearing out a drawer and came across my OLD phone from 11? years ago.
It's still kind of adorable.

I just watched Donnie Darko on Pluto TV (Firestick) and it really holds up great after 20 years.
My first time on Pluto and there were only 4 'under one minute' commercials during the entire movie and they have a pretty good selection of streaming content.
Plus, it's totally free without needing a cable account, etc.
