I've said it before I'll say it again

"Just buy an electric car to avoid paying high gas prices" sounds a lot like "Let them eat cake".

I find mental blocks to be interesting.  I often use lando on top of docker  to do local web development.  Here's the problem, I'm more a Babylon 5 fan than a Star Wars fan (no disrespect to SW or its super fans) so unless I'm really thinking. I'll say "Londo" instead of "Lando".  I feel that in every interview I say at least once "Londo, I mean Lando" and hang a lantern on it by making a B5 vs SW reference.  It's always a little awkward and I wonder what interviewers think.  I think I need an hypnotist to get inside my head and fix it.

Just pushed some code to automatically create a day node and attach new notes the the most recent day node as they are published, as I suggested on Thursday.  It worked in test, this will confirm it works in live.

Edit: Works as designed.

Since the workers were rescued I can say that I'm reminded of the old joke about the person who fell into a var at a brewery:

Old man O'Malley had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the Widow O'Malley of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but your poor husband passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "Knowing Brian O'Malley as well as I did, I don't think so," said the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room."

Made some minor updates to look and feel of the listing page.

Now that I have a proof of concept up and running which I'm pretty happy with, I need to go ahead and add some automation b to the creation process. Right now I need to create a daily node every day and then as I create posts during the day I need to manually attach them to the daily node. Ideally, after I create a post it would attach it to today's daily node, if a daily node didn't exist for today it would create that as well. Although I built thanks so you can change what days posts appear on, I think 85% sign of the time it would be the use case.

All this is possible and rather easy, I just wanted to make sure I was happy with the process before I spent time on the automation. This is probably tomorrow's task.

I'm the person who skips using kiosks to order or pay at stores if a cashier is available. I realize that the more we use self checkouts and the like the more likely we are to layoff lower skilled workers for who don't have as many options in the workforce. Last year a number of people who will be replaced by robots were considered the "Heroes of the Pandemic" like delivery people, healthcare workers, and maintenance workers.

This springs up the problem I've been worried about for a while. With the advances in technology, we are rapidly approaching a time where we no longer need the majority of society to work to provide with the needs and wants of that society.  For a person in the lower or middle class, we use work to prove their value to society and how they should be compensated. In a world where there is little work, how do we prove a person's worth?
