    It's gone up unfortunately, I've been furloughed but work time has been replaced (and then some) by Master's study.

    Has everyone been getting outside more now that lockdown's eased slightly?

    It's way up. Although I wasn't working before, I could go out more. Now though I regularly chat with friends that want to play on-line. All sorts of stuff - Terraria, Borderlands 2, even just chess And I figured out how to get Elite: Dangerous working on Linux, so I bought the Humble store offer recently. Sooo many games.

    But my running has gone up too and I'm now doing almost 10k every 2 days, so I don't feel bad at all.

    Nothing has really changed for me, but I'm consuming more wine and cider!, carried on working all the way through, bar 4 days when I couldn't get any paint, infact work picked up so much, pubs, hotels, shops are all closed so it's the perfect time for a paint job!

    So true.
    I'm doing less on the computer as work has almost all gone although have spent time tidying up email folders and CAD blocks so should be slightly more efficient when/if things pick up again. Given up on TV for reasons given in quote. More Netflix viewing with wife and daughter; watching Ozark currently.
    Generally I'm enjoying not having to get on a plane every few weeks and spending half the year away from home instead spending more time weeding the garden and cleaning the house in order to feel I'm doing something useful.

    Browsing the Internet is actually getting less due to the constant "cookies" messages, the "want to send you notifications" messages and the "we notice you are using an adblocker" messages.
    I realise sites have to make revenue but advert overload on some is just to much (thankfully Hexus is more restrained) and if a site will not let me view without adblocke disablement then i will not view it.

    Retired and very little change.

    Looking after 13 horses give us more scope for exercise than most.
