Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
I guess MicroSoft has taken to heart the strategy, "if you can't beat them join them" (which of course still means, embrace extend extinguish).
The biggest problem with WFH so far is that I get too much done too quickly that I overtake my plans.
Normally there are so many interruptions during the day that I'm constantly reviewing what I need to do just to get up to speed again and that gives me time to think of the next steps. Sort of a meta-flow state.
I may actually have to stop and intentionally think out my next steps. That's kind of frightening.

@emacsen 10/1 ratio, oh my. Sounds dire.
You know the old joke about the scientist. He has a wife and a mistress so that his wife thinks he's with the mistress and the mistress thinks he's with the wife. This allows him plenty of time to be free to work in the lab.
@diodelass ROOT would support this. Eg, one might save a TGraph. The result is effectively a gzipped binary list of (x,y,value) tuples. ROOT's a big software dependency to take on. If you are working in Python then "uproot" is a smaller, compatible package. Big caveat that ROOT's format popularity is fairly minimal outside particle/nuclear physics world.
@abemusicentropy I think I managed to fix more bugs than I introduced. So, not a bad day.
How was yours?
@wizzwizz4 I don't normally visit it but trying it now (from inside the US), it loads quickly and looks good with firefox+uMatrix. The latter blocks something like eight 3rd party sites worth of content.
I'm actually surprised USA Today rendered so well. Many "news" sites are blank with uMatrix active. When they fail to load, it's often a good sign to me they aren't worth visiting in the first place. 🤔
