Hopefully I have fixed it for you Bob - the only graphic the forum used which was linked to iconj.com was the forum favicon image which wasn't actually displaying properly anyway, so for now I have reverted it to the proboard default and hopefully that should solve your problem.

Around here the big supermarkets are struggling to cope with demand however the independant shops and smaller corner shops etc. seem to have plenty of stock - they are just being overlooked. Yes there has been some attempts to profiteer but those are very quickly identified and are being named and shamed on the local facebook group thats come together to help coordinate local info and I think they will soon regret having attempted to "cash in" on the situation. The local taxi company has responded by offering to pick up and deliver peoples click and collect orders for the cost of a single journey from the store to your home. Makes sense for them as I doubt as many people will be using taxis at the moment and their school contracts etc. will be on hold. Most places have said they are going contactless payment only or card readers only and are wiping them down after every transaction - cash is not being accepted in many places (not sure how legal that is). The local butchers, deli's and vegs shops have all switched over to offering orders by phone and either delivered or you can wait in your car outside and your order will be brought out to you. Many of the pubs that have had to close switched over to offering a take away/ home delivery food service. Several of the take aways have closed to face to face customers and are only offering online orders and home delivery or drive through.
You can't get a webcam (unless you want to fork out for a high end spec) anywhere even Amazon didn't have any when I was trying to get one last week and that was before the working from home advice was in place - I was very lucky in that my husband went to the other side of the city to a Currys that had said it had no stock online but he went on the offchance and got me the last one they had in store - it was on the wrong hook so presumably had been overlooked.
Anecdotally I've been told you can't currently get a freezer - I checked on AO and thats not strictly true but the cheaper ones are all out of stock.
I found out last night that I'm in the social distance stay at home for 12 weeks group due to a couple of underlying conditions. I have been on annual leave for the past week and was supposed to be off this current week so I haven't actually been out through choice - it was Cheltenham and I take that off every year. I'm able to work from home to some extent as we have a few paperwork/technical things that need doing but always got put on hold because we never had the time so I can get on with those things remotely but I'm unsure if thats enough to keep me occupied for 12+ weeks.
