Out of the Blue

It's hard to believe a year has passed already, but today marks the first anniversary of the launch of our supporter program. This gives me an opportunity to once again thank all of you who have chosen to participate. Your generosity goes a long way to ensure the viability of this site amid the ups and downs of the display advertising market, and I cannot express my appreciation enough. I would be remiss in not express appreciation to everyone else, as well. Your loyal readership is the foundation of the site, and has been an inspiration for me to continue to love what I do for 25 years and counting. Thank you all.

Is anyone else house hunting right now?

It's absolutely insane. My lease runs out next month, and after almost a full year of two people living in a 1 bedroom, often not leaving for 6 days at a time, and with me generally sitting in a seat at 9:15am and only getting up two or three times between then and 6pm, I'm dying for room.

Good luck on your house search, I'm guessing it varies wildly by state, probably even county. But even if you're stuck in your seat, GET YOUR ASS UP and do some jumping jacks, pushups/situps/squats every so often, unless health issues really prevent you. Sedentary = the slow death. Probably 50-60% of my coworkers have blimped up since Covid, it's looking grim, if this is an accurate representation of the rest of the USA.

Completely agree. Problem is, I am on Zoom calls basically straight through, without gaps. I actually had 6 meetings on my calendar at 12:30 today, which was a first. But it's back to back to back. To back.

Part of the move to the burbs is also to have room for some cardio equipment for the evening.
