    That is an insane amount of pages read per day. How much time would you say you spent per day reading in that 30 year time span?

    I had quite the opposite experience with reading. I was reading so much that sometimes I would but heads with teachers because I had a book under my desk reading during class.

    Same! I have not heard this one in a while. Ratatat definitely has some bangers.

    The T480 is the best laptop I have owned so far. Keyboard is excellent, the battery life is great if you have one of the bulkier batteries and taking it apart is relatively easy. Performance is also really good.

    Super practical machine. I love it :)

    My mother-in-law surprised me with a giant swing ride ticket that she bought me for my birthday. It was one of those swings where you wore a harness and had the swing attached to your back, so you rode in the air almost like Superman. They had a winch that would pull you about 100 feet in the air. It was terrifying to say the least. I don't do good with roller coasters or anything similar. I was yelling like a madman when the operator pulled the cable that let us loose. Legitimately had the feeling that I was falling. Never again haha.

    I have been writing a lot more lately. Some of it I post online on my blog, but most of it is just a stream of conciousness in a journal I keep.

    I have also lately been getting into emacs. I have been a die hard vimmer for the last three years. Emacs has always seemed super interesting to me, but I have never made the time to get to know it. I am using the Doom configuration, which is awesome because it has vim emulation built in.

    Chess has been exploding lately in popularity. Many online chess playing sites, like Lichess, are seeing a huge increase in traffic and playing time. Chess is becoming much more popular on Twitch thanks to Hikaru, an American Grandmaster. He is pulling about 15K viewers on his streams. Twitch is also hosting a Twitch Rivals chess tournament with a variety of streamers.

    For some reason I have had such an itch to play RTS games here lately. This last week, I ended up putting some hours into StarCraft Remastered. Just finished the Terran campaign and about halfway through the Zerg one.

    The "limitations" of this game make it feel super fresh to me. Only selecting up to 12 units at a time, weird path finding, not having workers automatically start collecting resources, etc make the game much more challenging but I am enjoying it a lot.

    I was thinking about doing a small dopamine fast to help clear my head. It sounds super helpful.

    I am not, I am in the States. The only help that I am aware of that we can receive are the stimulus checks that are supposed to be coming our way. I believe my wife and I both qualify for them.

    This happened a few weeks ago, so it is not new news, but my everyone in my company was issued a 10% pay cut to help keep costs down. Sounds like my boss really doesn't want to lay people off. I don't know how long we can keep this up though. Our main customers are hotels and it sounds like they are closing like mad.

    Stumbled upon this on Hacker News. I thought this was a super positive take on the situations that a lot of people might be finding themselves in. People all of a sudden have a lot of free time on their hands and can't go out anywhere. Boredom is a great spark for creativity. :)

    I do think that is a little extreme, but I would think the damages from having no patents or copywrites is probably less than an easily abused patent system.

    It was my first week of remote work ever. It has been super nice. I felt more productive when I was on task and I seemed to be on task a lot more. Next week is supposed to be my last week of working remote, but I would be surprised if this doesn't get extended.

    Not really a project per se, but I am trying to start a drawing habit. So far so good. I have spent at least 30 minutes the last few days just sketching. Been trying to do simple things like shapes and shading. It's pretty ugly, but I am a beginner and it is super important to not get wrapped up into results right now.
