We've been getting by ok for the last year, but not so ok that I could just go to the grocery store and buy whatever I wanted. I finally have a stable enough source of income to afford little treats like kombucha again and fucking all of society is collapsing in on itself and we still have to carefully ration food.
Fuck this, and fuck hoarders.
initial D spoilers
Ok, first- Let's enjoy for a moment the fact that "Akina from Initial D" is a place in Google Maps (it's Mt. Haruna in Gunma).
Now to the point- Itsuki and Kazumi are acting like they'll never see each other again because she's moving from Gunma back to Saitama, but they're /right next to each other/. It's like an hour and a half drive, and possibly faster by train.
You're not willing to spend a fucking hour and a half to go see each other once in a while?
open-source low-cost ventilator (covid)(pls boost)
Here's the MIT E-Vent, an open source ventilator (costs $100 from parts on hand), which company Newport was going to build for USA pandemic reserves, until rival company Covidien (yes, real name) bought them out to stop competition with their own more expensive ventilator unit.

Who looks at what that shit does to people and says "Yeah, sign me up"
Another friend has an EP out this week! Jazz / R&B vibes:
...ate several meals, took a shower, IMed a bunch of people, started refactoring some code, couldn't concentrate, watched youtube for a couple hours, made a pot of Thai coffee, read 5 chapters of Moby Dick, browsed reddit, wallowed in existential despair, /got over it/, listened to a couple of albums...
In the time it took Digital Ocean to respond to my ticket asking to be approved for higher tier droplets, I:
Spun up a new test environment on a Google Compute VM
Ran several tests
Got a full night's sleep
Had a conversation with my boss about hosting our own server for this application
Compiled test benchmarks for both systems and wrote a report about why even if we could use the higher DO tiers, Google Compute is probably better for us, but we should just use our own machine anyway.
