It's a bonkers time right now. I'm a Sky Sports customer, but there are no live sports to watch. The broadcaster has started showing playbacks of games and sports to beat the band.

As Covid-19 spreads around the world, last week Ireland saw another issue spread like wildfire. Misinformation.

It was just a few years ago. We're maybe talking less than two and a half years ago. I would see people obsessing over craft beers and think they were quite silly. Big wanna be sommelier heads on them. Yet, I sit here now, sipping on a gorgeous double IPA called Ether by O Brother Brewing, preparing to review...

I've been reading a few guides lately which point out some of the tech and apps that will help you work from home.
