A knight rode up to the tower.
"Fear not, fair princess," he called, "for I have come to save you!"
The princess looked down from a top floor window.
"What wonderful news!" she said. "You have a vaccine?"

"So I don't have to self-isolate!"
"No, but-"
"Then I'll stay."

So not only did my PC break during the last few weeks but the raspberry pi controlling the 3d printer also didn't survive the winter.

Also why are there loads of people on a train marked not in service?

One of the things I missed was games in the first person, finding Train Sim World really good for getting out the house virtually.

Yay I finally have a PC again now after my motherboard broke just as the government ordered lockdown three weeks ago!
