Trevor Bedford thinks this Omicron infection rate is unprecedented in human history so I’m going to give myself some slack on a couple things today.

US Politics Media 

This "voting rights showdown" media framing is so discouraging. As if having a political party openly trying to stop people from voting is a perfectly valid position. Just another wacky fight in Washington amirite?

How are we supposed to slow down a pandemic when pcr tests are taking days to return results, rapid tests are scarce, and society is full speed ahead on doing things in person?

Developer Life I Guess 

It is 2021 and I’ve been trying to resolve a time zone bug for two days. *headdesk*

"The state occasionally paid the Gute Menschen as well, sometimes handing them up to 100 marks, or giving them a nice present."

Vile.

My music pals are the best. Great birthday gift or greatest?

@laze I'm trying to let go of my non-used domain names and I've been ok at it recently. I still own mophos.com which was going to be a "mobile photos" sharing site in 2003. Prooobably not going to happen.
