    trying to keep myself and my family safe In the middle of an occupation of the capital of a G7 country. They protested at my son’s school yesterday.

    Maybe trying to set up the gaming laptop into a full-fledged setup with dual monitors and an actual keyboard and mouse when I’m not doing that.

      How is the situation down there conflict wise? The article shows kids playing soccer on the streets. I hope it’s safe!

        Everyone is safe, but the situation is very uneasy. Many of the occupiers have brought their kids, so I’m not surprised they’re playing soccer, but I wouldn’t want any of my family in the middle like that.

        Yikes, try and stay safe. I’m over in Orleans myself but this stuff is frankly terrifying.

          Aw geez. And just a couple of months ago I was thinking of Canada as being a potential refuge place if things go even more crazy in Europe. Best of luck and endurance to you all.

          Mars it is then, I guess.

            If it makes you feel better, there’s likely nowhere on the planet that is truly a refuge if things go super sour.

              I’d be fine with a small unknown island. But then somebody asks me where my low-latency internet and power come from.

            I’m really sorry to hear. This is a super scary time and having the threat of violence looming so close has got to be nervous making.

              Hey, me too! I’m over in Gatineau in the ’burbs but I generally spend a lot of time in Ottawa proper.

                My sympathies; I’m flying into rat-licker central (Alberta :/ ) for my weekend; I expect I’ll see some of the dumbasses myself along the way, although not as bad as your part of the country. Good luck!

                  Hey now, we are rat free!
