      Anomalisa looks like a fascinating film.

        @cgiffard I can understand the allure!
        smc
          @cgiffard Could be interesting, if you’re up for that obvious risks (startups, etc). They made an offer?

            @skematica Well, she actually works in construction, putting together massive bid proposals for large scale projects, so the wiggle room for creativity is limited. Mostly she just wants more background and understanding so she can put it to modern use.

              @skematica My wife’s about to take a calligraphy course - she spends her days in InDesign and wants some more experience/knowledge with fonts, type design, etc.

                @mandyd @oluseyi Yes, frankly that’s one of the things that bothers me most. Ick.

                  @skematica Far better than my own. I can make a lopsided splotch, that’s about it.

                    @oluseyi Yeah. I have Bose Noise-Cancelling headphones at my desk. I wish I didn’t need them, but, it’s kept me from unpleasant outbursts on many occasions.

                      @oluseyi Yeah, that’s the issue for me, we have an open office, and, it’s a VERY low barrier between people, so any conversation carries. That’s my primary problem..with higher barriers and more muted sounds, it would be fine.

                        @oluseyi I was never really a fan of working from home until I started working in a really annoying office with a huge amount of annoying and frustratingly loud colleagues - tough to focus and get stuff done.
                        smc
                          @oluseyi YES! I have reasonable bandwidth at home (100/40), an outstanding view, two 27” displays, Bose speakers and a fully stocked wine case with a selection of cognac, and other spirits too!

                            Yay, working from home day.

                              @cgiffard Indeed. I am not, however, holding my breath on that.

                                @cgiffard I’d say it was up to responsible journalists to do their research and fact-check, which, clearly, she has not. On multiple fronts. Annoying.

                                  @cgiffard I found the article to be incredibly frustrating and blood-pressure raising. Tempted to point out just how horrible of advice it is more publicly. Atrocious human being, she is.

                                    @cgiffard If they mean 1Password, I’m good with that. Sadly, they don’t. That’s horrible advice.

                                      @pharsicle @zephyr I chose Debian. Had to get some funky Broadcom firmware, but it’s up and riunning...
