It seems to me that a one-hour meeting is often just a poorly-run 45 minute meeting?

I didn't link the two until reading this article, but I've had fewer sjnce 2017 (when I stopped eating meat) and hardly any this year (since stopping eating fish in Jan)

I'd put it down to taking L-Theanine and generally reducing my stress levels. That must have also helped, but perhaps the difference is mainly to do with diet?

So... I've been dithering my images to use on my personal blog (small filesize, etc.)

But this article suggests I should just be converting to WebP instead?

Alright, well after trying to upgrade my Netgear Orbi mesh network to custom firmware to squeeze out a few more percentage points in performance gains, and then spending hours last night and this morning diagnosing and fixing it, and then getting back to square one (i.e. a working network on stock firmware) I have a message for you kids...
