They’ve had plenty of time. Most companies have to be EU compliant and they dragged on that one too, but it really needed to be wrapped up before mid 2019.

Psh, of all industries to complain about pandemic issues, the web tech industry is probably the least impacted. A bunch of programmers have to work from a computer at home instead of a computer at work, such difficulty.

Ha ha I’ll have what he’s having cause he’s high as a fucking kite.
