Andreas Grzybowski no. it's called a part lockdown. one month. the whole november. :(
Andreas Grzybowski Bad. Corona is massively back.
🚴🎸 Aditya Is Germany shutting down?
Lily Pretty good vibes over here. I'm cooking some 2am garlic bread and because my housemates are all asleep I don't have to share! plus they don't even get to enjoy the garlic smell so win win
🚴🎸 Aditya Hahaha, there's no wrong time for garlic bread.
🧐 Nrmn Going well. Trying to get new shoes. Mine are falling apart. Literally. But it's always hard to find shoes because I never know what to look for.
🚴🎸 Aditya I know that feel all too well. I usually rely on friends to point me in a general direction and then pick something up hehe
🚴🎸 Aditya How's it going, everyone?

Diva I'm trying not to eat all the Halloween sweets! So far, I'm failing...
🧐 Nrmn I think 80-90 is doable for me on good days and easy texts as well. But I'm rarely writing lots of text and if so then only in short bursts (in a blog article for example) so I don't really see the bottleneck in typing speed.
🚴🎸 Aditya That sums me up actually.
🧐 Nrmn Yesterday I stumbled over a typing competition in the US from 2010. The winner managed to type 163 words per minute on average! I'd be happy about half of that.
🚴🎸 Aditya holy shit, i can sometimes hit something in the 90s if it's a good day
🤔✍️ David Pretty good! I will be starting a new role in a few weeks or so :) how about yourself?
🚴🎸 Aditya Neat! That's exciting! I'm doing pretty good too, things are slowly returning to normal.
🚴🎸 Aditya So I just tried to ask "How's everyone doing?" but it turns out I asked that 6 weeks ago as well. But anyway, how's everyone doing now? :D
Lily Entropy is winning, send reinforcements.

🧐 Nrmn Generally good but a lot of personal stuff on my plate currently and it is just not feasible to procrastinate them further. Starting a hormone therapy actually today. It's about ekzema though, nothing mind blowing. Next step: start actual therapy to figure out that whole ADHD thing.
Diva I am OK and I hope you are too! Challenging times at work and at home, partly to do with COVID and restrictions. I'm enjoying the seasons changing from Summer to Autumn. And I am looking forward to some time off soon.
Sijmen Used to have a Dolce Gusto coffee pod machine, but those pods are an environmental nightmare so I switched back to my old filter coffee machine and it's great as ever.
🚴🎸 Aditya I'm glad and appreciate that you stopped using the pods! At my workplace, we have a keurig machine, but a bunch of people started bringing their own reusable pods and filling them up with ground coffee. Hope!
Nick Oh man, you really opened this Pandora's box. I thought it was an unspoken understanding on here to ignore Jerrod.
🚴🎸 Aditya Always thought it was a troll
Cole Hudson I actually agree with your points! The h-index also misses that often many people don't even read the papers they cite! Though I think the h-index should be replaced, it strikes me that it would be an interesting project to do an h-index for politicians, e.g. how many pieces of legislation have they contributed to which we're then subsequently used. It has all the same problems as a metric, but would be interesting nonetheless.
🚴🎸 Aditya > The h-index also misses that often many people don't even read the papers they cite! That's just terrible science! As for politicians: I think you are right, it would definitely be very interesting to build out such a metric, while taking inspiration from the academic h-index. I imagine all the data is out there, so doing so could yield some interesting results. I'd be open to contributing and collaborating on something like that.
🧐 Nrmn So what's up this week?
🚴🎸 Aditya Nothing much, more of the same tbh. Some work, some classes...How about you?
Diva It feels very Autumnal here in London; the leaves are changing colour and the temperature is quite cool. But this all means that hot chocolate is on the menu; we can layer up with scarves and hoodies; and we stay in and stream films!
🚴🎸 Aditya Fall is my favourite time of the year, by far. Also the lead up to the holiday season! And for much the same reason you've mentioned haha
