    Its social distancing. My program files workers comp cases, liens, petitions etc, with the state electronically. If no one is there processing cases then all work becomes "expired" like proof of services which can derail a case. If our employees cant process cases then we could go out of business

    Think it would be hard to define direct and collateral damage. As you said, a very broad web of connections. The number of different businesses/services that are affect when restaurants/bars/Theaters close could probably be used as a Doctorial Thesis.

    Direct is where you end up in the hospital on a ventilator. Collateral is all the rest.

    As for the dissertation, it's probably already been written...many times over. It can likely be written many many more times before any final word is written.

    Re: Post Race!

    My daughter does computer graphic design work using Apple computers for a small Furniture/Appliance chain ( a large store in the surrounding area) and last week everyone in the department took their work computers home so they could work remotely for social distancing, and then got the notice late last week that they are a non-essential business, so is furloughed this week for an undetermined period of time as the store has been closed because of the executive order.

    Her husband does GIS work for the county and I'm assuming his work may also be reduced because in the past they reduce his hours when the county tax revenue doesn't meet expectations. A lot of the county tax revenue depends on the performance of retail in the area, so with so many businesses taking a hit in revenue, it will affect the county's revenue as well.

    The ripple effects of this are going to be echoing through the economy for months if not years, even once the virus gets controlled. A whole lot of businesses will not be surviving, which is going to have a complicated result (both good and bad will result). A whole lot of people are going to go through a financial contraction, which will have an almost entirely negative result.

    I'm contemplating retirement. This virus doesn't impact my immediate finances, but it certainly introduces some strong uncertainty into my contemplation.

    Still, I always look on the weird side of things, and so:

    I know what small appliances are (blenders, electric toothbrush, shavers, etc.), but what is small furniture? Perhaps side tables, or maybe footstools. If it's the latter, the store could be called the Ottoman Empire. Unfortunately, it might be doing about as well, at this point.

    We're in the odd situation where those who are not hurt financially are still acting like we are hurt financially because we can't spend money even if we wanted to with all the businesses shuttered. I'd be out buying stuff for my garden next week, and the business I'd be going to could likely use the revenue...except that I don't know if they'll even be open.

    The recession in 2007 was a cash flow problem on one end. This is a cash flow problem on both ends: You either have a reduction in money coming in, and if you don't have that, you have a reduction in spending. It's all so very strange.

    Re: Post Race!

    Alright all you Californians, I FINALLY felt an earthquake.

    Yesterday evening, a magnitude 6.5 hit a ways north of me. I felt the house shaking, including the floor. At the time, the wind was picking up, and I briefly considered whether it could be wind, but I've been in the house for decades, and seen FAR stronger wind than that. The house doesn't shake at all. The floor REALLY doesn't shake, considering it's a solid slab of concrete with a layer of hardwood on top of it. So...earthquake, plus a few aftershocks.

    I've been in a few other quakes, I just happened to be asleep, at the time. In one case, I dreamed that my mother was shaking my bed. Once I got up the next morning, my mother asked if I had felt the quake. I guess I probably had. My bed was a massive, wooden structure lying flat on the floor (not up on legs). I tried shaking it, and realized I couldn't move it at all. So, the dream was probably my response to the quake.

    This one was much more clear.

    We were closer, I'd say.

    Having looked at the epicenter, I realize I was camping there this last summer. It would have been pretty awesome to have been right on top of it when it went.

    True, but it wasn't that kind of a quake. Had it been right under the tent, it sounds like it would have spun me around.

    Re: Post Race!

    Location, i.e. the geology also makes a difference.
    On the east cost, for a given magnitude, earthquakes are felt much further away, and any damage is much more widespread.
    A relatively less than major earthquake for the west coast, like the magnitude 5.8 earthquake near Richmond, Virginia, we felt quite clearly with a swaying building at work (and we're talking large squat buildings of only two or three floors, not towers) in Upstate New York a little over 300 miles away. And of coarse it was felt even further north, in some of the lower provinces in Canada, where they actually abandoned some buildings to inspect for damage (none found) because of it.

    Table Flip!

    I've been playing loads of TableTop Simulator during lockdown. It's actually got a Flip Table button. It's my favourite feature. (BTW, if any forum members fancy getting together for a virtual board gaming sess, just give me shout)

    @DD, don't think we've seen you in ages (or am I just hanging out in different parts of the forum to you). Good to see you again.
