My candidate statement for SCA’s nominating committee is due tomorrow & the prompt is “how can nominating committee ensure diversity within the orgs elected positions” & given everything that is happening with SAA I’m not sure I can answer that question. I’m seriously considering pulling my name because I can’t think of a response that feels honest but also not defeatist.

How does one focus on work when you’re not sure your family is okay? Asking for me 🙃

I have to put together a candidate statement for an org. It only has to be 300 words, but I have no idea what to say or what I care about anymore. 🙃

He's not the first and far from the last researcher that has questioned if I know what I'm doing. I try to be explicit from the very beginning as to why I can't provide something, but they quickly go from understanding to patronizing to downright hostile. My other coworkers don't have to deal with it as regularly as I do. *sigh*

I've been avoiding working on a research request, because when the researcher added a part two to the request after I was unable to fulfill part one he started explaining to me how I should read these floppy disks. Of course he said "You probably know all of this, but have you tried...."

We FINALLY got a written roadmap & explanation of why things are where on the IT front at MPOW. But also we are getting brand new (not refurbished new) laptops in February. I’m trying to figure out how I can be on that first wave upgrade list.

Was in a professional meeting & one of the participants started going off on how degrading the “ok boomer” meme is & all I could do was resist the urge to say it.

Spent a better part of my day watching a package that failed overnight ingest again only to have it fail again. Brb as I go sulk with a drink.

MPOW complaining 

Quilt friends! What is the definition of a quilt? My coworker and I are arguing about it. She thinks piecing is necessary but I thought two layers of fabric with batting in the middle that’s stitched together is a quilt.

Does anyone have information on archiving docker containers?

Just sent a pdf of a slide deck from MPOW with a chart that represents high, medium, and low in varying shades of teal and I cannot differentiate the shades very well. I just asked if there was a different version of the chart that’s more accessible, but I doubt I’ll get a satisfactory answer.
