Now that a lot of us are working from home to curb the spread of coronavirus, the bills our workplaces would usually cover are now being deferred to us. That means internet, phone charges, electricity and anything else. This is a reminder to write it all down because you should be able to get a lot of it back during tax time.

If you browse the mixers at a high-end grocery or spirits store these days you’re bound to find an assortment of tonic waters. My personal favourite is Fever Tree’s Elderflower tonic, Try it, it’s fantastic.
Tonics can be great to help bring out the flavour of the spirit that you’re drinking, but they can also sometimes be a bit overwhelming, especially when you really want to taste that spirit that you’re mixing that cocktail with.
Water is the enemy of crisp, perfectly golden brown roasted vegetables—which sucks, because vegetables contain a lot of it. If you’re all about those crispy edges, try reaching for a cooling rack. More air circulation means all that water will actually evaporate, so your vegetables turn out crispy every single time.
The coronavirus outbreak has continued to spread wreaking more havoc in countries as governments test stringent measures in order to stop further cases. The World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as Australia's own chief medical officer has maintained that most of the cases, however, are considered mild. Here's what that actually means.
There are lots of tricks to making poached eggs. Add vinegar to the water, swirl the water into a vortex, slip the egg gently into the water from a mug, plop the egg into the water so its momentum holds it together.

Coder Myk Bilokonsky asked Twitter for things “that everyone in your field knows and nobody in your industry talks about because it would lead to general chaos.” The answers came from all over, and they range from life-altering to useless. Some are cold hard facts, some expert analyses, some are unfounded opinions. Here are the most interesting, shocking, and informative.
Besides barbecue, few foods insight as much impassioned shouting as pizza. Being from the Southern United States, I feel no allegiance to any particular style, which is nice because I can enjoy them all (with pineapple). But pizza is comprised of three main components—crust, sauce, and cheese, and where crust is divisive, cheese can be unifying (maybe even healing?).
When major events occur, we often look to fiction to see how it compares with reality. It happened when Trump won the US election, when many looked to a past episode of The Simpsons, which seemed to predict the future. Now with the coronavirus outbreak spreading, everyone's suddenly gotten the urge to watch pandemic films. Here are some of the best and where to watch them in Australia.
We’re all spending a lot more time at home right now. If you’ve started to run out of things to watch, Roku is offering 30-day free trials of a number of different channels including Showtime, Epix, and Smithsonian.
Even if you’re following advice to stay home as much as you can, we all have to get food somehow, which means regular grocery trips or deliveries. If the idea of letting packages of food from The Outside into your home is nerve-wracking, it’s important to remember that while the risk of picking up the coronavirus from the exterior surfaces of your groceries is not zero, it is very low.
What a week we’ve had! It feels like it’s still Monday, but maybe that’s just me. We’ve helped figure out cable modems and ISP speeds; how to set up your work laptop with your monitor at home; talked about why your work laptop stinks at wireless networking; and helped troubleshoot the ever-vexing “now my primary computer won’t boot into Windows” fun.
Emergency dispatchers are overwhelmed with calls right now. Between coronavirus patients and a variety of “regular” emergencies, call volumes are breaking records. New York City, for instance, reported receiving 6,500 medical emergency calls in a single day—the highest since 2001.
