    I haven't been to "the office" since probably late 2019. We all work remotely but enough people are near Petaluma that we got a small office space there. Earlier we'd been using one of those shared work space places. Anyway I'm heading up there later this week for some <masked> face time with my colleagues.

    I'll probably pose in front of the sign for a picture or something stupid like that.

    It's also right across the street from the Lagunitas brewery. That is one partying neighborhood!

    You should tap on the reception desk and ask to see the manager. Then start complaining about the noise when you were on. “Very” important call. And really stress the word very. Make a scene and stomp out.

    Petaluma's a good place to get in some wrist wrestling too.

    An office? I sort of have vague memories of what those are.

    Have fun. I started working from home full time three years before we had to. I'm not sure I could go back now.

    I wouldn't dumpster dive even behind the Mesa Boogie building but ...... would probably hire some local homeless people to do the diving for me. I figure they'll be going in for lunch anyway. Why not earn a few bucks at the same time. Civic responsibility falls on all of us. Once I get the amp parts I'm hoping for I may run for office. It's obvious I'm a shoe in.

    Sounds like a Great reason to go to the Office and stop Telecommuting.

    I believe that means near or next door to famed bike parks maker White Industries.

    Haha, it will be fun to visit. I do already have a Boogie head and think it's fairly swell. It's also a 2 1/2 hour drive so that would prevent it more than a few times a year.

    I like downtown quite a bit too. One of the best shows of my life (RevHo, 2002) was here:

    I went freelance as a web developer in 1999, and have had a home office ever since.

    When people were talking about adjusting to working from home, I laughed a little laugh. :D

    In my case the impact of <TWWNBD> had less to do with me working from home and more to do with the fact that now my wife and kids hardly ever leave the house. I do feel a great sense of relief now that both kids are out of high school though.
