Baltimore Magazine recently published an article by senior editor, Ron Cassie, with some bold proposals to, as the title says, fix Baltimore. The article recounts some of the historical reasons for why Baltimore has come to be in the position that it’s in. It’s not what most people would think, especially outsiders, who most likely think the issue is crime, because they’ve watched The Wire; they’ve maybe even binged it during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It’s true that Baltimore, as it is now, is a product of the decisions made about its governance.

Good article today on Lifehacker about some of the issues using a VPN that touches on two of my new favorite subjects: VPN privacy and remote work.

Thinking forward to the next few months, I think I’d love a great snowball this summer. Yet, I doubt that’s going to happen. I’m not sure, no matter how good they are, that snowball stands will be allowed to be categorized as essential. Yes, they serve a food item, one pretty well beloved in Baltimore, but I don’t think they case can, or will, be made.
Not the most ideal circumstances for Easter, for Easter dinner, probably anywhere. Didn’t have enough garlic powder and was not about to go out and get any. Mac and cheese didn’t come out as well as it normally does on like Thanksgiving or Christmas. I forgot a couple of ingredients in the meatloaf and had to add them, mix it all together, and re-form the loaf in the pan.
I’d been wanting to upgrade to mesh WiFi at home since installing a few wireless mesh access points a couple of years ago at work. In one of our locations, before the wireless was mesh, it was a mess. I cobbled together a solution using two ISP-supplied wireless routers —one on the second floor, one on the first— with an off-the-shelf router also on the second. This one, I located along a wing of offices, which, probably because of the building’s construction, wasn’t able to get a wireless signal from anywhere else in the building.
