I started building this to learn the new tools in Autodesk Maya (I'm only about halfway through the modelling). And because I got a 3D printer for Christmas and though I'd design some gadgets as gifts:

Handy site for those that are stuck in the middle of constructing their websites, and need an image (no names, obviously):

http://textfiles.com/underconstruction/

(I'm not sure that this is local news: moderators please feel free to move it somewhere more appropriate)

It's not the site, it's wading through a gazillion images to select ones for each section, then optimising those in Lightroom etc and then building the actual pages.

I has a child that says it's old fashioned and he could do a modern, "dynamic" site for me. Problem is, he shares my blood.

I realise this is an "in" topic and will prolly go over everyone elses head.

I give that restaurant a wide berth.  I think that with Safeway, part of the problem is that Covid continues to cause interruptions in the supply chain.  They have a huge warehouse (with its own wind turbine) about an hour and a half to the southeast so, in theory, we shouldn't suffer from such shortages.  But when people get sick who are responsible for the transportation of those goods and there aren't enough substitute drivers, warehouse workers, etc. things don't move.

There were 3 packages, total, of bath tissue in the store yesterday.  No canned tomatoes, period.  Other banks of shelving completely empty of goods.

The public is partially responsible for not respecting the workers in the stores.  I was in line at the Safeway yesterday when the guy behind me in line lowered his mask so he could cough.  I laid into him.  He told me to mind my own business.  I countered, "I AM minding my own business!  You are endangering my health." 

He continued in a vein that indicated that he was a genuine nutcase.  I told him there was something wrong with him and went on to check out.  He looked sickly, with a greyish tone to his skin, and was strangely combative in a community where public courtesy is the norm.

Sadly, I only had to put up with this jerk for a short time, but the kind, helpful staff who have to spend 8-10 hours in that environment every day have no option but to deal with it.  His behavior affected many more people than me.  All I can say is that I'm grateful there are people who come to work every day, no matter what's on the shelves.
