Im still just sitting at home - this is week 4. Next week not looking good either.
Some of our production people are back here and in China. Still none of the main systems are back up.

Its forecast of “at least” a $200mn hit to its current quarter’s revenues is about a fifth of the $1bn in sales that it had forecast before the attack. Analysts at Cowen, a broker, estimate the final impact on quarterly sales could total as much as $500mn — more than half what Wall Street had previously predicted.
My team got approval to go into the office finally. We still dont have a fully operational network. Our systems are largely up again, but can only access them via a 5G hotspot / VPN (lol derp). I have easier access from home.
Sounds like it could be another month until we are back at 100%.
Im just glad they’ve been paying us the last 5wks without burning vaca or sick
When on travel, I’m not allowed to use thumb drives OR install printers.
It was great emailing drawings my personal email so I could connect my non-work phone to the printer. Then do the reverse with markups that I scanned on the printer.

Im still not sure why they didnt let engineering help with the computer review and quarantine process. Instead we have ONE local IT guy with prob 1k computers? I think I heard there was 600 PCs just in the rochester factory, not counting engineering laptops people had at home. And i think he also serves the other rochester locations of our other division.
