First of all, I hope everyone, including employees of our favorite magazines are safe and put their safety and health first.

Is there any information on whether Audio magazines, such as Stereophile, have turned completely to Work-At-Home model due to COVID-19?

Does any magazine expect delays for future issues? I assume next issue is already locked in, unless print shops are at reduced capacity.

Are you thinking about a back-up if the toilet paper shortages continue? (nt), posted on March 20, 2020 at 16:13:03

having used Sears Catalog pages as a child, i say that any slick paper is not to be considered.

My copies of Stereophile do accumulate in the toilet but not for any Covid-related reason but because reading there is one of my guilty pleasures. And, for the record, I do enjoy Stereophile.

Ann over-size infantry battalion is in the field, during our humid Aussie Summer.

And, as usual the HQ Company's Assault-Pioneer platoon has built/dug plenty of long-drop karzis, two per infantry company. Avec stripped-log seats and upright-cross-pole bog-paper holders, but failed to provide the usual large empty pine-apple tin covers for same. As the platoon's evening meal had not yet been eaten.

It doesn't even have to rain, as over-night-dew will soften up the bog-paper.

Sudden shortage of bog-paper, for just one morning, leads to near-mutiny, as tired, smelly, sweaty 'diggers' resort to whatever does the job. Mostly their own nasal-tissue packs! or their own roll of bog-paper.

Assault Pioneer platoon Sgt has meeting with OC HQ Coy, and Assault platoon looie! Sgt drives LWB Land-rover and trailer to nearest town, with cheque book.

When he returns large pineapple tins - are - in place. Bn ate pineapples for brekky.

The name of said SGT is a WAG for y'all.

if I understand it correctly. We speak the same language, but sometimes I need a translator. Margot has helped me in the past. ;)

It will detox for a couple-three days before I read it, though -- just in case!
