A: Time to get out the mower.

Hili: Lepsza głęboka trawa niż głęboki śnieg.
Ja: Pora wyciągnąć kosiarkę.

    provides my Teams backdrop for today.

    1949 – EDSAC, the first practical electronic digital stored-program computer, runs its first operation

    1998 – Steve Jobs of Apple Inc. unveils the first iMac.

    A nice coincidence

  2. A friend just forwarded a great WaPo article about how government access to information held on cell phones (geolocation, web searches, etc.) can implicate someone seeking an abortion.

    On Tuesday, Vice’s Motherboard blog reported that for $160, it bought a week’s worth of data from a company called SafeGraph showing where people who visited more than 600 Planned Parenthood clinics came from and where they went afterward. […] In 2017, prosecutors used Internet searches for abortion drugs as evidence in a Mississippi woman’s trial for the death of her fetus. […] And last year, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin decided that detectives did not violate the rights of the convicted murderer George Burch when, operating without a warrant, they accessed downloaded data from his phone, including his Internet search history.
