    They also impose strict KPIs to ensure the productivity maintain at a certain level. I think that works quite well when a production line is involved, i.e. factory/workshop setup. Engineering/creative fields are quite different tho. Surprise to know that all your employees enjoy such flexible working arrangement. What a privilege.

    Would you say VBC Timeless is of a similar, if not the same, range as VBC Perennial?

    If you are using Windows 10, just set the network to metered connection, that should stop all Windows updates. All Settings -> Network & Internet -> Wi-Fi -> (select your Wi-Fi network) -> Metered Connection, set to "On"

    We have experienced a similar situation once, with a not-so-tailor tailor, more like a shopkeeper. It was a suit fitting for a friend, I was present. Shopkeeper was doing the fitting and he said this fitting is "special", we didn't understand that, just shrugged it off. Then, right before we left, I realized the fabric is different from what was selected initially (ever so slightly, different pattern, same color), so I asked my friend if he had changed it, he replied no. It was only then the shopkeeper admits that there was a mistake, the person who put the suit together use the selected fabric for the front of the suit, and then use a different (wrong) fabric for the back. We don't know if they use 2 patterns or 1, but still, we were surprised to find out what a mistake it was! Come to think of it, I can't but wonder, there must be another guy out there with our fabric used on the back of their suit, haha. Didn't commission them for any other suit thereafter.

    Apart from back office, management, and some sectors of service providers (those that work predominantly in an office with a laptop), this is simply not possible. I suppose the WFH bunch are only a potion of the workforce. By definition, to produce/work, people need to be at production facilities and work with tools (could be other humans). Unless their 'home' is the production facility (sole contributor, freelancer, etc.), this is simply not achievable. Which is why factories and construction sites and law enforcement and etc. cannot shutdown. It is simply not doable. Still, accounting, legal, customer service, IT, etc. these can WFH, to a certain extend, but as you can tell they produce services mostly, not goods. I might also add that they stand on top of the foundation of physical goods production, not unlike the dependence of carnivore on herbivore. We are already seeing physical retail stores in malls packed up and left, ignoring rental contracts. Even F&B outlets are impacted (especially cafes), it seems takeout orders are simply not enough to cover. They either sell the business, or simply liquidate the assets and close down. Guess what happens to the accountants of these businesses? Given the lower amount of traffic and economic activities, demand decreases so will production (as per your mention), but there is always a delay between production and consumption. We all know that Q420 is gonna get another hit if the Order gets an extension. It is just deflationary and detrimental. Hopefully this doesn't go beyond the point of no return. Apparently the fear of an entity can cause much havoc than the entity itself. *** By the way, beautiful music that. The former.
