1 The politics are getting annoying, and people who shouldn't, are getting involved.  I got an email this afternoon from a small American movie theater chain I liked to go to before the lockdowns, Alamo Drafthouse, advertising some BS thing they're showing that talks about the "massive incompetence" of the current administration, and also a talk by Robert Francis O'Rourke.
Oh, that's your attitude?  Naked partisanship?  OK, eff you.  I unsubscribed from their marketing emails, and they're lucky there's no "why are you leaving?" box on their unsubscribe form or they'd get an earful, starting with "I used to be a fan but now I'm glad you closed all your DFW theaters."  They could've felt as anti-Trump as they wanted and just kept quiet about it, but nope, they had to open their mouths.

2 Archive.is has a cached copy of the NYP Biden story, and I posted it to FB a couple of hours ago--hasn't been tampered with yet, although I thought I'd read yesterday Zuckerborg said he wasn't going to squash the story like Twitter did, which only goes to show that, unlike Dorsey, he has at least a flatworm-equivalent nervous system.

3 Oh boy, my USB port and voltage regulator breakouts just showed up!
Also, last night I bought a cheap electric skillet so I could engage in pan-fried solder reflow!

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
