3 Idle Thoughts for Friday

The weekly posts turned monthly, but here’s your three idle thoughts for Friday, March 27, 2020.

  • A quick survey of the latest FlightRadar24 data from midday today showed that nearly all widebody aircraft flying in the United States seem to be cargo carriers. It truly is a sad time for air travel (among other things).
  • It’s a funny day where a circular buffer overflow fails a bunch of otherwise fine enterprise SSD’s.
  • As many have pointed out, dogs are otherwise perfectly happy staying indoors for most of the day. We could all learn from dogs for the moment.
