sol, good job on stepping in for max. I know you've said you've been busy still having to go into work every day during these pandemic shenanigans, so it's doubly impressive you're able to keep up with the stats.
It is actually school holidays at the moment (phew!) but yeah, it will be back to the grindstone in about a week's time. What's more, our prime minister has said that schools after the Easter break need to carry on business as usual with all students attending all of the time (for the last two weeks it was optional for parents to send their kids to school). It all seems very rash to me, because yes, Australia has started to flatten the curve, but we are nowhere near the peak of the crisis. Still, our prime minister is taking the hard line and insisting that relative immunity among children means that they should still attend school, even without necessary supplies of sanitizer and soap, and with it being impossible to keep kids 1.5m apart from each other. Neither the teacher's union nor our state's premier is too pleased about all this, but as a federal directive I guess we'll just have to follow it until enough Covid-19 outbreaks within schools forces the government to reconsider.
Anyway, I suppose I should be using the next few days in which I am not under the pump to try to work out why the rest of max's awards will not auto-generate.
I could of course do them manually, and I have enough free time on my hands to do so, but after a crazy first term, I kind of just want to chill out and relax these holidays - or at least relax as much as I can when neck-to-neck with two others on the Challenge leaderboard.
Speaking of which, I am still hoping that max will find job security, some form of normality and step back in and take over the reins before the end of the year. I have at least managed to keep the leaderboard up-to-date, so it should only take him a small amount of tweaking to generate up-to-date awards when he resumes leadership.
