I've been brought in on the ground floor for a very focused group for covid-19 which is a statewide priority. I'm doing it at a county level and I'm relatively new but it already feels like I'm the number two or three at the county for this which is really great. Started doing that yesterday and I put in about 22 hours between yesterday and today. My boss is looking into overtime because ain't no way I'm staying under 40 hours. This is gonna be rough y'all.

One of my college roommates was super interested in design and really opened my eyes to how important some of it is. It's really great finding stuff like this.

The way data is presented is incredibly important, I'm glad this was eye-opening!

Caroline Rose is releasing a new album Friday. The two singles she's released are:

The Way I Feel

Freak Like Me

The kicker is that the pre-order arrived a few days ago and Back to the Beginning is the best one on the album IMO.

The other thing no one talks about is subscription services. It feels like everything these days instead of saving up for a lump sum takes a small amount of every pay check which in theory sounds great, but in practice takes from everyone, leaving everyone worse off. The new SaaS profit model is slowly draining the economy of much needed support. It's only a matter of time to see which wins -- profitability and monthly subscriptions, or lack of wage growth for twenty years while everything moves to monthly subscriptions instead of once-bought services.

Peak Beatles is right before breakup with Don't Let Me Down on the Rooftop

Worst, I refuse to pick. They have too much good that I can't physically bring myself to pick.

Speaking of gaming, I've taken up Zork thanks to the 404 page on hubski...
