recently switched to a standing desk and he loves it.
I finished the standup desk this weekend. The tabletop is a bit
fancier than intended as I had two linoleum planks from a prior

actually have two widths. The tabletop might not be deep enough to
hold a screen, but it should be easy to exchange it for a bigger one.

Because of this, there’s no way for the chip’s new security capabilities to protect against card skimmers in the wild.How do you protect yourself from legacy-technology-induced fraud? […]
As the old saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 30 minutes every day. Unless you are too busy, in which case you should meditate for an hour.” Since most of us have an endless list of things to do and people to see, carving out quiet time can feel impossible, especially when most […]
