Corona Virus and how you can help
The Corona Virus is now a global pandemic. This outbreak has and will continue to affect all of us in one way or another. Schools and workplaces are closing or innovating new ways to work and learn from home. Stores are struggling with the demand of scared consumers, and misinformation or lack of communication from our various governments is causing even more panic. The one solid fact that stands true is that we need to know more about this virus and how to fight it, and we need to know now.
Folding@Home is a program that uses the idle time of your computer to perform complex disease research. It’s easy to download and operate and will cost you nothing (except possibly a slightly higher electricity bill).
We may just be a bunch of nerds who like to play games, but that means we have one valuable resource that most do not- computing power. Please visit their website to learn more about this program.
If you do decide to participate @NeilZar has set us up a team , where 30 community members have been running F@h in their off time and I’m happy to announce that we’ve just reached a milestone of 9,400,000 points (to learn more about how points are determined click here). To join the FK Gaming team add this team ID (236744) into your client.
Join the conversation in the #corona_lounge on discord where new reputable information is shared and discussed about the virus and its effects on the world.
FK Gaming Meetup Announcement
"Just thought I'd say something about what possible affect COVID-19 could play on the meet up. Currently there are no plans to cancel the event but myself (Mulletshock) and @Winters are going to see what's happening and what state countries are in (lock downs or travel restrictions) closer to the time. In regards to people who have already booked Hotel and/or Travel, the Hotel booking can be cancelled 14 days before the date of the booking if you have gone for the Semi-Flex booking or (I Believe) the day before on the Flex booking and still get a full refund so I wouldn't worry about the hotel for now. However, if you are traveling and have to book something like a ferry, train or plane to travel to the meet up I would recommend talking to the company you booked/are booking with about cancellation's or what they can do if COVID-19 ends up affecting the meet up." - @mulletshock

Things to keep you busy during self quarantine
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic scientist and governments agree that the best action to halt the spread of the virus is self quarantine. Finally all of us introverted nerds can do what we always dreamed of, and be praised for it. So lets do our part in helping to stop the spread of the virus by staying inside, refusing all social engagements, and skipping work/school and lets play some games!
Check out the Calendar for planned events, and feel free to add your own!

A reminder to all Arma players- Our Arma Server (FK1) is up and running 24/7 and available for off-hours missions at any time (excepting main mission times) if you would like to Zeus, or just attend an off-hours mission just join the off-hours channel on TS and poke some friends to join you! It is a perfect time to learn new roles that you may not get the chance to during main missions, but please remember that FK rules and restrictions still apply!
Sorry this INTREP was taken over by the pandemic, but it was necessary. I hope you all stay safe, wash your damn hands, and don't leave home unless you have to.
