    We went to visit my wife’s parents in New Jersey. We were in masks outdoors and distanced. I am glad we did it, but the whole experience was creepy and dystopian.

    honestly, if anyone needs help with their home office setup, I’d be happy to recommend stuff and walk you through setting it up on zoom. It’s something I’m good at and it would make me feel good to make things less crappy for people in some small way

    @copa If you have the two Thunderbolt ports, this will let you run two external monitors and also let you connect an external keyboard and mouse via USB. You plug the hub into the two Thunderbolt ports and then plug the monitors, devices, and your power adapter into the ports on the hub.

    If you want something that’s just a simple video adapter for an external monitor, you can use this.

    @Copa do you want a single monitor port or multiple monitor ports? Do you want something with a USB hub that lets you connect a keyboard, mouse, etc?

    Oooh ooh! Let me help you! Look at this page and tell me which ports you have and I’ll find you a compatible monitor or dongle.

    NYC is one of the few places that’s really had a drastic decline from the peak. I hope that there’s some development of best practices that can be applied in other places.

    @Copa, you may want to invest in some monitors from home and figure out a way to get them working. They’re pretty cheap right now. You can even repurpose some old TVs off ebay.

    Kate, the NYtimes has a good case tracker that shows MA down quite a bit from their peak but still at a pretty high daily level of infections.

    I guess that I understood the whole idea behind a “peak” to be:

    1.During some period of time each sick person is infecting more than one person during their time of infectiousness so that the daily cases are increasing (left side of peak)

    2. Then the number of daily cases stops increasing and starts decreasing because of interventions that keep people from infecting each other (lockdowns, masks, distancing). So, because everyone is locked indoors each sick person is infecting less than one new person and the number of new daily cases decreases gradually (right side of peak)

    3. The transition from 1-2 is your peak

    I’m not trying to be contrarian or anything-I really just don’t understand why they’d project a “peak” for some place that’s been going up for the last two months. What do they expect to happen in June to reduce the level of infection transmission that didn’t happen in April or May?

    I don’t understand from a technical perspective why states would be expected to peak in mid-June. What’s supposed to happen in June to slow down the rate of transmission that didn’t happen during the previous two months?

    Call your congressman and ask for bailout and recovery money for the boob cruise industry. America’s entrepreneurial boobcrusiepersons need funds or we won’t have a domestic boobcruise infrastructure to come back to and we’ll be dependent on foreign boobcruises

    Heh.

    Probably won’t be much boob cruising for a while.
