    I was really enjoying Fall Guys, because the gameplay is fun and the design aesthetic is fun and I like that there’s no chat or mic spam. What is no fun is all of the cheating, so I quit playing.

    That happened in the past. A viewer of a TV news show noticed a lump on an anchor's neck, called the station. Turns out, cancer.

    You might also have pep rallies for other events - graduation is one example.

    I liked this quite a bit. I frequently forget that Gorillaz are out there making new music, so it's nice when it pops up

    I've been re-engaging with our developer community on the run up to a conference, and I got my thermal camera hooked up to Zoom.

    There are things I'd like to comment about on this site, but the cost - both opportunity and realized - would be too high.

    I've tried to type this up a couple of times, but I'll keep it short and sweet.

    If we, as a species, could control ourselves for a few weeks, this would be over.

    We can't, and we won't.

    There is no good answer to your question.

    How much education and socialization does a kid need to miss to be at permanent disadvantage to older and younger near-peers?

    If schools open up in the fall of 2021, we're going to have a massive social a/b experiment on the kids that started school in 2019, 2020, and 2021. We probably won't like the results.

    The guy that I linked to has an auto-updating github action for a version of that. I'm thinking of exporting my LinkedIn data to a form of a CV.

    I passed as late 20s-early 30s from about 16 until about 25. I'll be 50 next year, and apparently I look like I'm 70?

    I make postcards from pictures I've taken and send them to people I know. I usually send them when I travel; no OCONUS travel this year, so I've started sending them once a month or so from home....

    I make postcards from pictures I've taken and send them to people I know. I usually send them when I travel; no OCONUS travel this year, so I've started sending them once a month or so from home.

    Last year I sent about 1000 postcards. I really enjoy finding the right picture to capture a moment. I've upgraded to a really awesome paper cutter so I can print on 220g A4 cardstock and cut 25 sheets into 50 postcards quickly.
