First let me say THANKS to the folks still going into work every day.  For the rest that are spending more time at home during Covid19, you are either working from home, or at home waiting to go back to work.  How are you spending your time?  Lots of people are spending less on gas.  If you are describing your experience from the last few months, what are some other things that might make the list?  

Some people are saying they are learning a new skill during this time. A personal friend of mine seems to have time to work on getting his CISSP certification.
