Loved it. I think it did well staying true to the book. The music was great. Ready for the next one.
The cryptocurrency provision of the infrastructure bill "is part of a larger movement by regulators to basically task actors within the cryptocurrency community to engage in more surveillance of their users" - EFF's @RaineyReitman on @Forkast_News https://forkast.news/video-audio/digital-privacy-freedom-of-expression/
And for any concerned I'll be taking all the perfectly fine working 3k bulbs to my family farm to be used in the various sheds and stuff. I'm not THAT wasteful. Just anal.
I spent like $100 on lightbulbs so that I could get each room in the house to a consistent 5k white light since the previous owners had a mix of led/incandescent bulbs everywhere and some where 3k "warm" lights and others were 5k white light.
Also am I crazy for having a preference of 5k for the temperature of my lighting? Or just crazy for actually having a lighting temperature preference at all?
Dashers used an app called Para to dig into the dispatch orders from Doordash to figure out how much they'd earn from the jobs on offer. Doordash's excuse for freezing out Para - "protecting privacy" - is self-serving nonsense #privacywashing

Been on a relaxing family vacation this week and it's been great. Actually spending some time reading and managed to read Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir and have about 80 pages left of Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline. If you liked The Martian, Project Hail Mary is a similarly good read. Ready Player Two so far is alright but definitely not as good as the first.
