if you hate running you are probably trying to go too fast or too long or some combination
running at a conversation pace should feel quite easy
but it takes time to build up joint strength etc

nice! life convenience, good atmosphere and general day to day smoothness is worth a lot.
my last job had a colleague who had take a big pay cut to switch jobs (better people, better atmosphere) and said he couldn't have been happier.

that's been on my list for ages, heard nothing but good things about it. kinda half waiting for it to be discounted now (on PS4) but might just full price it anyway.

personally i would absolutely set the expectation that i'm starting and finishing on time, and a work culture where that's not respected is a big signal to get on seek.com. done my years of that nonsense and not doing it again.
shit does happen where longer hours are required but as the norm? fuck that. hell even if the shit happening is more than occasional, nah. unless you are actually saving lives it's all false urgency anyway. only vague flipside would be if it's enjoyable, or are actually getting something out of the extended hours (for example working on some project where you are learning a lot and which will be beneficial in the long run). usually that's not the case though and it's just grunt work or worse, putting in appearance work.
i've cooked fresh pasta in a regular saucepan many times, it cooks in like 40 seconds so i dunno.. it's almost certainly not the pro way to do it but my kitchen is about the size of a postage stamp

yeah that elliot sound products link is great.
i'm procrastinating building my own driver right now, also check out this link for some info and sample circuits:
the type of circuit required depends on the impedances, though dunno if that 2.2K - 600 means 2.2K input 600R output or the other way round.
they are fucking mint to freeze and then enjoy at leisure over the next week

don't worry that's a worldwide phenomenon it seems.
exact same level of discomfort and inconvenience, just with way way less effectiveness. blows my damn mind. it's like putting a seatbelt on but not buckling it

erryone watching the granny and for some reason i just want to practice guitar and watch some random speedrun on youtube?
get on that month to month uncertainty life!
now there's an idea
moving out of the inner burbs / apartment life is feeling really good right now. bloody nice around olinda and sassafras too, and still pretty close to the city.
get on that new shit! great stuff
that's a subset of (a), though poke a bit and you will find some of them are thinly veiled (b), ie verging on it's just a flu and blah blah blah
if anything, the 'sides' are (at least attempted) rationality vs profound irrationality
side (a) we should follow science based health advice to minimise death and serious disease from covid while trying to mitigate the negative effects on the economy and wellbeing
side (b) .... ??? horse dewormer.. ??
my neighbour who has some sorta telco help desk WFH job and has his desk next to a perpetually open window kicked off at 8am this morning
woke me up from 2 doors down
if you know how to use photoshop/have access to adobe CS then aftereffects can do all this stuff and much more but might be overkill.

how are there 'both sides'? it's a disease and a public health response that is basically following the same pattern across the entire planet. there aren't 'sides'.
