Dreyerdaughter indicated she wanted as SFF PC so she could maintain and upgrade it herself at uni. I spent hours doing research, but couldn't come up with anything decent for under $1000 in the current environment. My preferred specs were actually more like $1300. I ended up getting her an HP laptop for $750: Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD. I wanted a discrete GPU, but it wasn't in the cards. She's actually fine with Intel Iris Xe graphics: she plays mostly Genshin Impact and Minecraft. A laptop is probably for the best, she can catch the train to Grandma's for some R & R on the weekend with the laptop more easily, although she was originally planning on having a mouse and keyboard in both places and just carrying the breadbox.

My employer is still only using Moderna, which means the two counties we operate under are only giving us Moderna. Lately our vaccine events have tanked in frequency and 15 min and 4hr rapid result tests have gone up. In our area, it feels like the people who are going to get the vaccine have pretty much done it and now the adults who won't get it have to keep paying us for tests so they can go do things with everyone else. I'll be honest, I didn't expect testing to be the core of our business model for long after the vaccine became available. I was really naive to how many people wouldn't take it. The news of the delta variant(s) hasn't seemed to change that much yet. At least not in my experience.
IIRC, you're in CA? What kind of people are you seeing again and again for testing? Older? Younger? Men? Women?

Visual Studio Code Version one point 57.1.

I'm guessing the speech to text didn't get that quite right.

A client of mine told me about some of this stuff in the past. He had a pretty successful business and decided to explore Amazon Fulfillment which he later regretted. He would complain about the storage fees Amazon charges for inventory and the waste it caused. You have to really turn over inventory quickly otherwise your profit is sapped significantly by the storage fees. Many sellers have done the math and realize its easier to just get Amazon to discard things entirely. He also gave up on ever handling returns in a remotely reasonable way, people would return items for the dumbest reasons, commit literal return fraud by sending back empty boxes and all sorts of nonsense but Amazon didn't care. They would almost always side with the buyer due to the A-Z guarantee. The worst part was that after he decided to break up with Amazon, they opened the floodgates to cheap knockoffs and basically ignored his complaints until he got a lawyer involved.

I've also had colleagues work on the executive side of Amazon and described it as the most competitive, backstabbing, exhausting burnout culture you can imagine.

Now that I think about it maybe there is something to that "Don't let Jeff return to Earth" petition.
Several years ago I updated my profile on LinkedIn and Amazon contacted me. I couldn't believe my luck. I had known about the warehouse issues, but assumed the tech side was like Google. Then I started doing some research: The competition, the backstabbing, the hours, having to return a midnight text within five minutes, etc.

F that.

Well things are finally picking up speed with vaccines here - better late than never I suppose. Me ma go her second on Friday. And my second shot got bumped up to July 10 from the original Aug 31st. Here's hoping this delta plus variant isn't the fly in the ointment, Hans.
mRNA vaccines as well as the new Novovax one seem pretty strong against it. Also, the mRNA companies are busy producing a booster that prevents the variants that should be ready at the end of this year. We're still a couple years out from getting this under control, since the vast majority of the world needs to be upgraded to 5G so that we can beat this thing.

For example, there are those who feel the rounded edges of Windows' new UI are a little too similar to those you'll see in Apple's macOS.

They should have cut the corners off, BSG-style.

I'm not very adept at one-handed typing, evidence of a misspent youth not chatting with webcam models.

I'm not sure that would have helped you, as you would have learned to one-hand type with your left hand while your right was, ahem, busy. Since you injured your left arm, you are stuck with your right which would have received no training at all, or rather, not the kind of training that could help in this situation.

That is the least effective security guard in the history of security guards. In SF there isn't a law that says hired security can't do their job. I know that would be easy to believe about the supposed liberal bastion of the planet but that dude ain't paid to stand there and take cell phone pics. That isn't the job description. His response indicates to me that this is what he is specifically told to do at that site.

Walgreens shouldn't be complaining about high theft if the thieves already know the security guards aren't going to do anything but stand there and film them. That article answers the questions about why it keeps happening.....Walgreens won't stop it. If that dude with the cart tried that at Office Depot on Geary Blvd just down the way, he would be stopped by security. Nice try to blame it on the city though.
Isn't the job desc "observe and report?"
I wonder what the CA specific laws are RE: security guards. It may be the case they are prohibited from physically interacting with lawbreakers.

I actually prefer Epic's check out to Steam's. It's much faster and more efficient. Epic respects my time. Steam makes me jump through hoops.

So he donates to the GOP, so what? It doesn't mean he's pro-conservative, just anti-liberal. And there's still plenty of good reasons for that these days. I'm guessing, however, that 'thank you' to the gay community is completely tongue and cheek.

I don't think anyone would have noticed or cared if he donated to his Senator, John Cornyn and the national committees or even Trump. But he chose to donate not only to Trump, but also the worst election-denying Trump enablers: Nunes, Stefanik, McConnell, Carson, Tuberville, McCarthy, etc. Guys like Carson, Nunes, and Tuberville are under various ethics and criminal investigations. It's a pretty damning bunch he chose.
