I really like the look of this desktop calendar
I think it is to small for my taste. 5" x 5" is probably standard desktop calendar size.
Not sure what the ideal size would be for my taste though.
Maybe I'll get it to see if my expectations are correct. If I don't like it I can always gift it to someone.
This deep fake is an interesting one
I agree with Kotke that they should have added Zendaya. Although a young Marisa Tomei would be better based on the story Back to the Future is telling. Lorraine, after all, is Marty McFly's mother.
24 Days into the year and we already have the best GIF of the year.
Thank you, Swear Trek for this beauty.

The new desk components have been ordered.
Now it is just a waiting game
Waiting for the order to go through.
Waiting for the delivery day and time to come.
Waiting to put everything together.
Waiting to get started.
Of course, some things have changed.
Instead of going with two Hemnes units I opted for two Malm units. This was due to height, modifications (I didn't want to spend time modifying if I didn't have to), and space. The photo that I was using for inspiration had two Karlby counter tops set on top of three Hemnes drawer units. If I only have space for one Karlby and two Hemnes the space in between the Hemnes units would be 12 inches. Which is way to small of a space for me to have a desk chair. Enter the Malm 3 drawer unit. With no feet and a smaller foot print it will achieve roughly the same look as my inspiration photo without the need to modify the actual unit.
I'm looking forward to starting this project next week.

The prospect of tech giants’ amassing huge troves of health records has raised concerns among lawmakers, patients and doctors, who fear such intimate data could be used without individuals’ knowledge or permission, or in ways they might not anticipate.
I'm not sure what the context of this quote is in the larger story. But, it seems ridiculous to worry about tech giants making secret deals if hospitals are doing the same exact thing!
Shouldn't the outcry here be that hospital systems entered into secret deals with Google for access to patient records?

RSS really is not a good way to read my blog.
Here's the thing about the web; I can read it how and when I want to. I prefer RSS so that I don't have to remember to go to checks notes 484 individual websites to see what is being shared on any given day.
As the author of a website, if you don't want people to read your website in an RSS reader simply don't include a link to a RSS feed.
But, you don't get to tell me how I can read your words. I get to choose how and when I read them; if I read them at all.
