(to be clear: I don't endorse their economic worldview or their enthusiasm for purchasing the outcomes they want from the government. I'm well aware that none of their actions are going magically fix the situation on the streets. It is, however, a pretty big deal that they're committed to an aggressive if normal liberal program. There's no inherent reason they'd have to be, given Big Business.)
We've gotten pretty powerful (mainstream liberal) messages of support for these protests from every CEO in my Megacorp all the way to the biggest of business daddies.
They supplied recommended reading and viewing; expressed outrage and solidarity with protestors and our CNN crews, and pledged money, WarnerMedia is joining the blackouts, and they've increased funding and visibility for diversity and inclusion efforts.
In major corporate america, the culture war is over.
A long shot: does anyone here have experience retrofitting a multi-zone HVAC setup into an existing house? With Heather's business going in on the ground floor and me trying to work upstairs, it feels like we need two zones. It's probably hugely expensive, but I guess I don't want to prematurely rule anything out.
related: if anyone knows anyone whom I could pay to do this better than my "shit, shit, shit I guess I duct-tape here and here and I'm out" job, let me know :).
Went up into my attic in an effort to connect ventilation hoses (installed by the roofers) to new bathroom fans. That suuuuucccckkkkked. Note to self: insist that the roofers just do this when the roof is open "next time".
There's like 18" of clearance between the top of blown insulation and nails, the hoses barely reached, and in order to even get out there you have to fish around in various forms of insulation for boards to put your weight on.
I need to share this as widely as possible, since it gives me great joy: https://twitter.com/MTGRemy/status/1263149144350363649
Been watching Community over here; it's frequently quite hilarious, and also extremely weird.
I will say that both Heather and I were somewhat put off by the first season's need to make Jeff the hero at basically all times. It's a very white-dude-centric show, at time kind of cringe-ily so. Hopefully that'll change.
The funny stuff is still quite funny, though. On to season two!
this house was 100% renovated by tabletop gamers.
OMG, here's a house: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/480-Rainier-Dr-Pittsburgh-PA-15239/11262049_zpid/
To circle back around on the a2council votes this evening, Heather got a response to her letter from CM Nelson about fiscal responsibility and how we just don't have the money for things right now due to the covids.
That's about what @sstrudeau predicted, IIRC.
Had Rick Wakeman's masterpiece of epic prog rock on repeat all weekend while spending my spare moments building a magic: the gathering deck based around the King Arthur legends. I'm super-proud of this, and it's _maybe_ the nerdiest thing I've done in a few years :) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nf0KCPs9YIOpWSOGUdhzoYJXpF7MEPvLg
I have no embedded systems experience! I have never held a QA engineering title! I don't want to work for Ford!
