OMFG… The number of times that I wanted to throw my laptop across the room when I got this ridiculous “An internal error has occurred.” excuse for a message when using Remote Desktop Connection is… let’s just say that it competes with the number of times that my friend’s 5 year-old daughter has demanded that I play GoFish. ARGH!!!
This is my account of a problem I ran into with DNSMadeEasy. TL;DR: there seems to be a technical glitch they failed to address, and now I don’t use them.
This article is the collection of knowledge / thoughts about COVID-19 that I find relevant to my everyday life.
Getting it: masks work. Not perfectly. This is a good illustration on El Pais.
Incubation period: average of 5 days.
On average, symptoms showed up in the newly infected person about 5 days after contact. Rarely, symptoms appeared as soon as 2 days after exposure. Most people with symptoms had them by day 12. And most of the other ill people were sick by day 14.
When Contagious: most contagious 1 to 2 days BEFORE one is sick.
Researchers estimate that people who get infected with the coronavirus can spread it to others 2 to 3 days before symptoms start and are most contagious 1 to 2 days before they feel sick.

This is amazing. Like legit amazing. Super-bit thanks to Mary, who showed me the light.Continue reading
I wrote an article about depression not being a bad thing. Posted it on Medium here!
I think I may have done a good thing here at nikitab.com/MARulesCiv.htm.
Use Case: people should be able to have public “support” conversations with companies.
Product: a site that would allow individuals to have public conversations with service providers in order to ensure social accountability. Continue reading
The morning brought a collective shudder of horror and the Canadian immigration website crashing due to overwhelming traffic. Before moving to Canada, take a deep breath, acknowledge what had happened, and realize: this is an unprecedented opportunity to evolve.
Take the Christian framework. God is wise and powerful. Yet, if one looks at the religion at face value, a paradox immediately emerges: God is all-powerful, thereby all knowing, thereby any suffering caused is as God intends it. Yet causing unnecessary suffering is, by definition, petty. And there is no shortage of suffering either in the Bible or in history. A God that would force humanity to endure the 20th century, unless one assumes that it might have never existed, would be incredibly petty. And yet… God cannot be petty by definition. And so we are at a liar paradox – can God create a rock He can’t lift? (An entirely new spin on “do you even lift bro”…)
