Might be wise to bump it up an inch.

Hmmm, I might have to try it out.  One of the big hurdles to some of my personal development is not wanting to use my work laptop, not wanting to buy a new laptop, and having a windows desktop.  If I can run linux on it that would be pretty awesome.

That doesn't explain the pay gap when comparing for the same job though

It can, but individual cases can always have different causes anyway.

And just because I think maternity leave is the largest contributor to gender wage gap doesn't mean I believe that there isn't a problem there. I think society would be better off if we looked for ways to bridge the gap (without discouraging babies).

What the hell happened to us in the second half?

Inexperience?
Nerves?
Fatigue?


Gaaaah!

Oh well, I guess we did well to get into the semis.

As a friend of mine put it, I haven't been that nervous about a semi since I watched Brokeback Mountain...

I've used cygwin but I'm not a big fan. It's hard to build new packages and it doesn't integrate well with windows tools (at least back in the day, maybe things have changed).

The native linux on windows stuff is supposed to work pretty well but I haven't actually found someone that uses it for day-to-day development.

I give it one season.

:D

It takes me about 20 minutes to cut my grass, front and back. I've got all the dandelions out, just have to deal with the clover. If don't get any results with the spray I'll call a company.


I still love cutting my lawn :D  But I did end up hiring a company to fertilize and weed spray. Had too much clover taking over. Now it looks great (aside from the extreme heat killing half of it, but that's the norm here).

How high do you mow?

Probably around 2.5".  We've been having extremely hot weather (like 46 C = 115 F) and almost no rain. Pretty much everyone's south facing lawn is brown. My north facing backyard is in better shape since it gets some shade from the house. I watered it last night which I don't typically do (kinda feels like a waste), but it's at the point now that I don't want to risk root damage.
