Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

In ‘81 I was a year into my first career job as a software developer with Ma Bell, enjoying for the first time a livable wage. I was in my thirties, finally out of school, living la vida loca.

38 miles shown. Probably a metric if I start from home though.

In 1980 my partner and I closed our garage and I had an awful breakup with my girlfriend. In 1981 I was back working at gas stations again and found one that had so much work I was making more than I ever had. Unfortunately alcohol still had control of me and I effed that job up. I was still a few years away from quitting drinking.

Hey MoAlpha I see the FDA approved lecanemab. I am underwhelmed by what I have read, including the recent NEJM study. Care to comment?

In all seriousness, this is an amazing place. We celebrate births, we mourn losses, and we learn of life’s challenges and victories. Week after week, it’s like watching pieces of a puzzle fall into place.

All their 95% CIs excluded 0, so that's something.

Speaking of which, it reminds me of the Rule of Something:

Something must be done!
This is something.
Therefore, this must be done!

Statistical significant difference does not necessarily mean clinically significant difference.

But I will stay tuned and hopeful, as the currently available treatment options are not very good either.

But it's better than lack of significance. Trust me. BTDT.

Iíve got more gut than guads so I have to rely on kit-doping pretty heavily.

Yep. Putting it off for a few years but it's going to result in a bunch of my existing cables and blocks being scrapped. Hooray for progress.

I mean, you're kvetching about binning some chargers and cables, but in the context of upgrading and then binning electronics that prolly shouldn't need to upgraded and binned. I think that the planned obsolescence of devices is much more problematic than minor casualties caused by moving towards more stuff to being interchangeable.
