I find it hard to pull out my G6R, in favor of either of those engines.

I can see why. The air efficiency of my G6R is a compelling reason if I don't have air fills immediately at hand. The VCom is a bit of a gas hog (relatively speaking). The VIS hasn't been. I blasted people on Thursday with the VIS Engine in the Reptile. It was a great way to close out 2021.

I am sick as a dog. I had a cold last week and I think it turned into a sinus infection. I do not want to go see a doctor with covid **** flying around, but I have no choice. I've not felt 100% in about a week. I am covid free, at least.

That sounds horrible. Nerve paint is something I never hope to encounter.
It almost makes me happy that it's only my ears/head that feel like they're gong to explode. I hope the drugs start kicking in tonight.

I had the same thing in October. I was sick for pretty much the entire month. Started as a cold for about a week, then turned into a sinus infection for another week, then minor congestion and cough for another two weeks.

Hope you do get better soon, I usually get sinus infections 2x a year. However ive been doing pretty good this year. Also im improving at what seems like a rapid pace. I can almost walk normally after only 4 days, and hopefully its just a quick trip to chiropractor to get me back up to 90-95%.

I feel so much better today, but i took the day off work just in case. I'm not looking forward to a low 4 degrees when I've been sitting at home in sweatpants for a week.

Talk about a weird week at work. Snow storm shut down DC on Monday. So we go back in on Tuesday and find out a bunch of people at work got Omicron and were out/sick over X-Mas. Then yesterday one of the guys on my team calls out sick. He has a fever of 102. Tests positive around mid-day. Work is informed because we have a Covid protocol in place. Our team goes down and takes rapid tests. One of our junior engineers tests positive and is still asymptomatic today. Work sends us all home on a 72 hour quarantine and we have to test negative to come back on Monday. Glad we're all vaxxed and boosted. Then the city shuts down again today due to weather. What a week.

My work is talking about making us work in teams again. This is going to suck because my site only has 4 techs, and a traveler at it. I'm not looking forward to working like this again., on call every other week is not somthing I am wanting in my life again. The stress of even thinking about it is making my back hurt.

Basically, OSHA made it so getting covid from a coworker is a recordable injury, and that affects the TRIR data that everyone uses for safety. Because of this, they're doing everything they can to keep it from spreading at work.
....
Now this seemed fairly reasonable as a way to incentivize employers to get employees vaccinated, but now we're seeing a new strain that doesn't care about the covid 19 shot. OSHA either hasn't had time to modify the rule, or refuses to do it, so companies are scrambling to not get recordable injuries. It's dumb because I simply am unable to work from home, or by myself and undue stress with stupid rules like this in completely unnecessary.
If we revert to having to stay at home after being potentially exposed, or having ANY symptom, i'm gonna lose my ****, because my company also decided that they're not giving out free covid downtime, like they did last year,(this may be returning I think they have the plan set to come out on Monday) and i'll have to burn my PTO in order to keep in like with their insane policies.

Policy came out. They're requiring us to use FMLA or short term disability when we have close contact with a positive person, or if we do an activity deemed "too risky", according to a chart that somebody made, until we get a negative test, or fulfil CDC quarantine guidelines.
So we're right back to where things were a year ago, except now disability is brought into the equasion. Bull****.

We just had three people test positive where I work. None of which I work directly with, but that's still a lot considering we had three total confirmed cases for all of last year and we just matched that in one week.

That sounds like my office. I think we had four people out all of 2021 with Covid. They all got it from their kid(s) who got it at school. We have twice that many people out in the last week. Nuts.

Yeah, it's bad enough when it happens at a field, but at home? Yikes!

Leave it to paintball players to **** a good thing up. ICC open is one of the best events in paintball for the last few years. Tim's been dead a year and now they're on their 3rd venue. I'm sure it's nice but who wants to go to the Catskills to play paintball. Yes, let me fly into NYC and drive 2 hours to get up there. Instead of working through whatever issues they had at a nice venue twenty minutes from Pittsburgh's airport, they screw it up.

Holy hell I have a ton of pods.

Ohios taking the home sooner than I thought, so I've been on a tear going through storage.

Any you need pods? It's kinda useless to so.eone who's gonna be intermittently homeless.

Worse case I can make trucker bombs for anyone who dares cut me off in traffic.
