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

    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.
