A slightly different aggregate: 40% of your workforce being unable to work. Some portion of that might be death, grieving, being sick, helping family or friends that are sick, fighting off zombies, or searching aimlessly for human brains to consume. That is to say that some of the remaining 60 may be working from home. -- David W. Hankins "If you don't do it right the first time, Software Engineer you'll just have to do it again."
