Corona stuff 

I was back to work since 3 days, it's also 3 days I woke up from nightmares about emergency situations.

But now they sent my officemate into quarantine too because we shared the office for half an hour yesterday. (It's mandatory for our group to come to work in person now.)

I just got tested. On the positive side, I'm out under the sun waiting for the bus back. On the negative side, those tests are super painful aaahhh

I was assuming my doctor would call to tell me the result of the corona-test, but my supervisor started asking about the results being online and a pdf.
It turns out the paper they gave me before the test explaining how to download the corona warning app, that I just skimmed because I already tried, has a QR code I have to scan with the app to be warned when my results are online.

But my phone doesn't work with the corona-app :flan_shrug:

Of course the codes in the pdf compiling all the results and on my QR code have totally different formats. I asked my officement if he could scan it for me, but then the results might be tied to him.

So here I am trying to emulate android on my lab computer.

Corona stuff, how to get the german corona-warn-app to work on windows 

So it turns out I could install bluestacks then grab the apk from apkpure, open it with bluestacks, scan the code with the webcam and get my results :muscle_hmn_r2:

Less complicated than I feared! The most painful part was waiting for bluestacks to be installed.

Also, I'm all good :blobcatcoffee:

@Yulran I hope you don't have it! I'm glad your work is having you be home just in case!

@compostablespork I'm glad too, I think they reacted a very reasonnable way. My officemate hates me, though :sweat_smile_ms:

@Yulran thing is, I think we're going to have a lot more of this, so we may as well accept it as how to responsibly behave.

I work at a university so we're all braced for the shit show of students returning to campus. Expecting a LOT of interruptions for quarantines then.

Corona stuff 

@compostablespork I wasn't actually expecting my institute to be that dilligent in sending us home. Because they started forbidding home office again - but also sharing offices, which might more or less work now in summer while they encouraged everyone to use their vacations days, but will be a mess when automn comes.
