Weekly Wrap 515: More isolation into and across Easter

Monday 6 to Sunday 12 April 2020 was another week of isolation, but it seems that I’m starting to settle into a new pattern. Is this good? Or bad?


  • “The 9pm His Plague Diary 5”, being The 9pm Edict episode 101 recorded on Saturday. It’s also on Spreaker and SoundCloud, as well as Apple Podcasts (and the link on the web page has been fixed), Castbox, Deezer, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Pocket Casts, Podcast Addict, Podchaser, and Spotify.

The 9pm Edict podcast is supported by the generosity of its listeners. Please subscribe for special benefits or throw a few coins into the tip jar.

None, but thanks as always to the new and returning supporters who hit the tip jar.

The Week Ahead

The isolation continues at Bunjaree Cottages at Wentworth Falls. Monday is Easter Monday. That won’t be anything special this year, so I’ll be writing for ZDNet. In the evening I’ll also add to that Twitter thread.

That ZDNet writing thing might also happen on Tuesday. Wednesday Thursday will probably be my day of errands.

I’ll do another podcast in there somewhere, as the mood strikes. Probably on Saturday.

There’s nothing much else scheduled for the rest of the week. In fact there’s nothing scheduled for the next three weeks. This is our world now.

Further Ahead

It remains to be seen how many of these events will still be happening.

Please let me know if there’s anything I should add. I doubt that there is, but it’s worth asking.

I just realised that some people might think that posting a photo of a mosque at Easter is making Some Sort Of Statement. No, I just wanted to use a photo that I’d taken this week that wasn’t about that damn virus,]
