The Jail in the Gunter Hotel
>The Gunter Hotel in Frostburg, Maryland has a rich history, some of which is entangled in illicit affairs. In addition to housing travelers, the antique building also contained a jail, a speakeasy, and at one point a cockfighting ring in the basement.

I went to college in Frostburg and can also add that the hotel has a super creepy collection of porcelain dolls 🤪.

Disaggregating the economy: cost of living | askblog
here are the US states color-coded according to per capita GDP with an adjustment for Regional Price Parities: that is, it’s a measure of income adjusted for what it actually costs to buy housing and other goods. With that change, California, New York, and Maryland are no longer in the top category. Hoever, a number of midwestern states like Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and my own Minnesota move into the top category. A number of states in the mountain west and south that were in the lowest-income category when just looking at per capita GDP move up a category or two when the Regional Price Parities are taken into account.

> a poignant and sincere account of one human facing his forties, those years when men in particular must stop pretending to be the children of bright potential they were and settle into the failing bodies of the wiser, weird dads that they are.

I'm closing in on the mid-40s and weird dad with failing bodies sounds about right.

Multi-Cloud Begets Confusion, Calls for Automation
One reason is confusion over how enterprises define multi-cloud: Just over half of those polled defined it as including a combination of either public or private clouds along with on-premise infrastructure. (That is also a widely accepted definition of "hybrid clouds".) Meanwhile, 23 percent of respondents said multi-cloud includes all three: public and private clouds along with their own datacenters.
