Really cool explanation, I had seen some of this before but not to this level. Thanks for sharing!

Three day weekend -- good, was getting to the point of burnout. Things are going okay, I'm happy with where I'm at but I know it's going to get hectic very quickly -- always fun.

That's pretty cool, I wonder if we have introduced competing spores by sending our tech?

I didn't realise "stalkers" were a real thing -- having only seen the videogame series. Weird!

I didn't see any mention about whether this is contaminating the groundwater, either with radiation or gadolinium nitrate. Gross to think about really.

So my presentation did go well but it was always going to be a roll of the dice -- extenuating circumstances have meant I've not got the job I've been waiting 3 years for. I'm not surprised and can take this on the chin as good 'experience' but I think I'm allowed to be put out...

This is the end result of years of friends telling me I'm being taken advantage of and that I should move on, so it feels a little bit 'told you so'.

I have horrendous flu so I spent most of last night having a fever dream about a second presentation. I'm going to give it a go and put something together as I think my idea is a good one and it would give me a solid piece of project work under my belt if they would actually assign me some responsibilities.

Fantastic doggo goob!

Our insurance went up moving house, we're closer to a big road I guess? Our garden actually has a gate on it though so ours is safer and getting more exercise than ever!

Bit late to the pub, but had my interview and presentation today! I'm pleased with how it went and was commended for how much work I had put into it. So that's something.

Oh my goodness goob, I hope tomorrow goes well for you all and please post pictures!

Fascinating that this experiment may have been 'affected' by Spanish Flu and Covid-19.

This article has missed out that with the Iota update it will support NFTs.

To be honest I don't expect to make money selling my art, NFT or not!

Thanks, some interesting stuff there. I still regret how I used my Bitcoin, bought humble bundles and donated to archive.org. Not a bad use at the time, but the value that's now worth.... Oof.

    Further to your application for the above post, we are pleased to advise that we would like to invite you for an interview.

So looks like I'm working on a 15 minute presentation next; still too early to tell so I'm going to keep the good ol' "What can be learned?" mentality.
