Description

Last week I was in a conference centre in the NL with a wifi network that blocked ssh and smtp (!). I could read mails but not send any. To get home on the same day I needed to fill the Dutch covid form. It's required to have it filled on your phone at all times. It's editable pdf, but editing doesn't work on my phone. So I filled it on my laptop and cernbox-ed it to my phone. Thanks, CERNbox app. You saved me.*

  • actually not really as predictably nobody checked the form.
    ** I now realise I could have used webmail. That never occurs to me under stress.
