Survived cancer (for now), destroyed by a bad relationship. Can’t win ‘em all.

Unfortunately, no one can be told what polyamory is. You have to fuck it all up yourself. (And then hopefully unfuck it)

I'm fairly happy with the performance of Win11 on the Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 6. It's very snappy and I get around fast and effectively. After decades on Mac OS it's kind of nice to add this to my workbench.

I don’t have faith that electing progressive candidates will be sufficient to preserve the representative democratic order in the US, rather it seems necessary to elect individuals with enough fortitude to literally fight, as we, apparently, will all have to do along the current trajectory. It’s not so much that social progressivism isn’t a priority, but it’s a lesser concern to me for now than losing the game altogether.

My girlfriend and I had a nice week combining large LED clocks with photography. It’s been a nice way to introduce her to the hacker/maker community and to spend time bonding over a fun project.

Folding@Home, COVID-19 

I know we all heard of the Seti@home shutdown last week, but there is a new viable project. Folding@Home has been around for nearly as long as SETI@Home, but they have turned their efforts toward speeding up research toward treatments to battle COVID-19.

If you have spare cycles, I would ask you to consider spending them here.
