I'll be contrarian (I guess): I like Gutenberg and WordPress 5.

Interview time setup, hoping I can celebrate being accepted into the program next week.

Nothing has pushed me toward home automation more than Christmas lights. So. Many. Outlets.

I want the survey data because it is interesting to look at and I am curious about what insights we might be able to derive. Nothing more.

I still check the bird site each day, but more and more of it is just corporate advertising and no real discussions going on. Much better over here. I can’t say I’m surprised by any of the moves. Would like to see Bob and Maxi back, but next year’s roster is going to be VERY different for the loons.

Just handed in the application for my doctoral program. Now we just see where this leads.

I really just need to hold off on purchases for a few more days ... since shipping will probably be tossed in with all of the sales.

Many when in cold climate will just stick with the initial instinct and what more are taught: Shut your jacket and keep all clothes airtight.
Well, that's not always right.

As my army trainer told us,
the natives of Sapmi have clothes that include a belt over the jacket which is normally kept tight, but if they expect long time physical exercise, they remove the belt to ensure the jacket drops from being short to instead medium-length and allows for air to circulate from bottom to top so that the sweat is allowed out.
If it's not allowed out while excretion is anyway heating your body, it will remain while you generate less heat and then it will cool you way more than "nature intended" long term.

That's why you'll find those "annoying" strings mid/bottom of any kind of serious winter outdoors jackets. Open them UP before doing heavy work.

Minnesota NBA talk 

I feel the key will be to continue pushing for a narrowed criteria list based on how the devices are actually going to be used instead of hopes and dreams. Those who dream can ask for an exception. Otherwise a waste of time and resources.

Spent the better part of last week on IT governance stuff and now I’m excited for the next major device refresh on campus. Hoping we can narrow it down to a few choices including one with Linux installed if anyone wants it.

Zotero is amazing, but I wish it had more/better options on openSUSE and iOS.

And another notification of the server being down. Going to prioritize its replacement this coming week.

Not sure which is better at the moment. I want to give each a try on my iPad as well.

Between Mast and Toot! ... the client situation on iOS is greatly improved. Really pumped.
