    I've uploaded a few images lately with no problem. None as epic as the millennium falcon, though

    Hehe, glad you like it. What browser did you use? I use Chrome.

    Do you think it is a decent browser? Never used it myself.

    Decent, yes. Great, no. It's got some annoyances, like the inability to have a new tab open to my home page. And, because it's an app, it doesn't play well with plugins. But, honestly, I don't ask much of a browser so it does fine for me.

    I suppose that at least it doesn't crash or get hijacked all the time like its predecessor. Back on topic, anyone wants to share more purchases?

    Where I live, everyone who isn’t sick or stuck home with sick relatives. Are people still allowed to get essential items? Is buying online still possible? Where I live, this is still possible.

    In the Netherlands you are allowed to leave your house when you are not feeling sick or have a sick person in the household.
    Constraints:
    - no groups with 3 or more people, keep a distance of 1.5 meters from others
    - shopping: max 2 persons per household, with a maximum of 1 client per 10m2 of shop space
    - social distancing, don't visit others except when necessary

    In the UK you can only leave your house for medical reasons (obvs), to buy groceries or once a day for exercise. And if you're a key worker.

    Re: What was your last purchase?

    Surely people can still go to a supermarket to get decent food?
    Not where I live. No decent food available on store shelves. The hoarders load it into their pickups as soon as it hits the shelves in the morning. No TP either. If you want Jalapenos and Hot Pockets, there might be a few of those on the shelves.

    I am still working, and can leave for a bike ride or other necessary things (groceries, etc.).

    Doesn't sound wise if there's no toilet paper

    Our supermarkets are basically back to normal now. I reckon the panic buying lasted about 2 weeks then tailed off.

    I'm gonna buy disinfectant. That would mean that I'd be disinfecting disinfectant, which would be totally awesome.

    How would you disinfect the box of disinfectant when you receive it as you wont have the ability to use the disinfectant until you open the box?

    Set the outside box on fire. That will kill the virus if it exists. Then douse the box with water before the container inside melts.

    Water isn't a good disinfectant. I like your first step, but not the second. Therefore, I'm going to set the box on fire, then douse it with pure rubbing alcohol. That should disinfect all kinds of things, perhaps even the entire neighborhood, once all is finished.

    Pure rubbing alcohol will definitely kill the virus. if you have that, scratch the setting fire to the box. just douse it in alcohol.

    Welcome to the forums. I love it when people find their way to ChitChat as their first sub forum. They get to experience all the weird wonder that is VBF.

    Re: What was your last purchase?

    I had an amazon delivery in the strangest fashion.

    Unfortunately, his delivery may have broken the headphone inside the package.
    It is also entirely possible that the headphone was broken in the warehouse from where it was shipped.
