I also want to float the idea of ChiHuSiStock for next summer. If not HERE, I'm up for the idea of some HuSiStock somewhere else? The city is nice but it also has drawbacks, after all.
I've also been thinking about doing some open house style party for my birthday (early September) this year. Obviously anybody reading this is welcome to pop by for it if you reach out. Once I figure out what I'm doing.
Job is okay -- I just got pulled into a new group, the VP I'm under just expanded his scope and he's making a small team to do all sorts of stuff and I was hand-picked for it as the ML guy. And AI, but I really don't know deep learning and especially not the LLM/GPT type stuff, but I've been working on catching up on that and getting ahead of it basically since the start of the year. So this seems good for me? As long as I can deliver...
We're getting an e-scooter thing for those times we're traveling a little bit but want to avoid driving or the bus. This happens fairly often! A lot of 0.5-2 mile trips.
I caught a cold (verified to not be COVID), first time in years. Really annoying to coincide with a time that I don't have a car on hand. Tried a free trial of one of those premium grocery service things that will do delivery for you. It's pretty okay, free delivery, lots of coupons on top, I'm halfway considering keeping it after the trial runs out since the $100/yr fee would pay for itself over the year even though I do tip generously. The store is only half a mile away though.
