    Data Day: Puzzle Boat Contributions  Our work team finally finished Puzzle Boat 8 at the end of November, 38 days after starting it. Here is a graph of puzzles solved by each teammate, starting with Puzzle Boat 6 where I had no idea what I was doing. I joined the team thinking "I like crossword puzzles, sure!" and then spent the next three months  itemizing cats .     As I've said before, I wholeheartedly recommend the puzzles from  P&A Magazine  -- they're definitely worth the money if you find your typical newspaper puzzles a little too easy.

    Data Day: Family Letters  Here are all of the letters you need to spell our family's names.     REBECCA prevents this from being a pleasing shape. Had I married a MOIRA, we could have made two perfect bunny ears!

    Data Day: 80 Days of Sleep Stats  After Ian was born, Maia had some initial trouble accepting that life had changed. This was reflected in a few days where she didn't fall asleep until 4 hours after her bedtime or she woke up with the roosters. I started tracking her sleep times to give us a better feel for how tired she was on any given day.   She actually adapted pretty quickly after a couple rough weeks, but I kept on tracking because data is fun. Here is the number of times that Maia woke up at particular times in the AM:     And here is when she fell asleep (with bedtime typically at 7:30 PM).

    Quarantine Data Day    Today is Day 249 of our quarantine. We get groceries from Giant pickup and the outdoor farmer's market in Sterling, supplemented with early morning runs to Safeway for fresh bagels and hard-to-find Coke Zero. We don't eat out quite as much as the early days of quarantine, maybe once or twice a week now.   Maia spends two hours per week in her community center class with 2-3 other masked students. Depending on whether Virginia implodes in the coming weeks, we're thinking about expanding that up to six hours in December so Rebecca can be "off" for a little more each week.   Rebecca has started working again sporadically. The past few weeks have been a couple evenings a week seeing a few patients in an...

    Quarantine Data Day    Today we're on Day 200 of self-quarantine, having spent 54.8% of the year away from gross people.   I think we have adapted quite well, adjusting socially to have one family at a time for dinner on our screen porch or doing activities that mostly involve the forest. We've taken two vacations (complete with pre- and post- quarantines) as a pod, taking advantage of the available rental stock on VRBO and other sites.   We've switched almost exclusively to grocery pre-order and pickup, although I still make a weekly early morning trip to Safeway for their soft, soft bagels and Coke Zero (surprisingly, there is still a Coke Zero shortage because production has switched to basic Coke to avoid any shortages ...

    Quarantine Data Day    On this, my 130th day of quarantine, I have now spent 35.6% of 2020 in a very low energy orbit in and around my house (not unlike subatomic particles chilled to near 0 degrees Kelvin).     I've shopped at Giant 24 times, Safeway 8 times, Costco 2 times, and Wegmans 0 times (roughly once every 4 days). Out of those 33 trips, I've only seen non-homeopathic disinfectant wipes in stock 3 times.    I've made 135 git commits to my new web development project.    I've amassed 13 days 9 hours 28 minutes of play time on my new Elder Scrolls Online character.    I've spent $585.83 on Amazon purchases. However, the first place winner in my company's Advent of Code compe...

    Data Day: Evolution of the Annual Office Party   or, at least, the ones I actually went to         2010 : Small conference room at the Sheraton Premiere. Ugly Sweater Contest is the main feature.

    Data Day: 3 Years of Monthly Finances      The chart shows my income and expenses (omitting all investments) throughout my brief stint at the commercial startup, as well as the Great Stay-At-Home-Dad Experiment.    2018 was the first year with a net negative change -- I ended the year down $15.80 from where I started, which isn't half bad when I spent most of that time hiking through the woods trying to get Maia to nap.    My goal for 2019 is to get back in the black in spite of my new major expenses (Netflix fee hikes, HOT lane charges taking Maia to Grandma's house during rush hour, and generous support to the burgeoning local brewery industry).

    Data Day: Cloud Hosting Costs  The URI! Zone has been running IN THE CLOUD for just over  three years now , so I thought I would compute the costs to see if I'm really getting my money's worth. The answer isn't completely cut and dried, as I do a lot more with the flexibility offered by the cloud, spinning up new servers on the fly to work on  Sparkour  or taking over hosting duties for the  Paravia Wiki . Still, I'm very satisfied with what I've gotten for the amount I've paid.   In the olden days, I was spending $240 a year on the "complete" hosting package for the URI! Zone. I could login to my space on the shared server and upload files but not much else. When I moved into AWS, I added a 3rd server (Web/App/DB instead ...
