Re: AE's Journal Round 4

I wouldn't think it would be a bust since you have an MS in the field. Just wondering if you will get bored of this after a few years or if this enough to keep you stimulated. It is an exciting field and likely to evolve quite a bit. My problem is I can't think of anything that will keep me excited ...

Re: AE's Journal Round 4

If you know there is a field you enjoy, then saving to get out of work becomes irrelevant. You will still save and practice all of the ERE principles, but you won't have that albatross of escaping from all work looming over you. This assumes you will really enjoy bioinformatics. Seriously evaluate t...

Re: Best car for ERE

Modern cars are galvanised, compared to stuff from the seventies (especially Italian cars) rust really isn't a problem. The only parts we have had fail through corrosion are in the exhaust system. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/rusty-cars-why-theyre-not-thing-past I will give you much ...

Re: Health Insurance

Cheap with subsidies assumes you don't have to use the health insurance. If it's just an insurance that you never use than it can be cheap. If you have to use the insurance regularly, your budget will take a huge hit. There is a big gap here.

We salt our roads quite heavily in the UK in the winter.
Either you turn over cars before the rust hits or you have a magical salt that doesn't cause rust.

Re: Health Insurance

Costs will vary greatly even within the US, so specifics aren't really as helpful as general principles. If you are healthy, then realize how lucky you are and get the cheapest plan available. If you are sick because of lifestyle, fix it, and then get the cheapest plan. If you are sick through no fa...

Second, I am very stubborn. I don't like to do what someone tells me to do even if that someone is myself. I'm at serious risk of overspending just because I'm told (by me) that I should save.
Probably worth figuring that out since you have to live with yourself.

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus

You can't extrapolate drug activity in vitro to in vivo. But some antivirals or other meds will probably work, just have to test them in people. At least there is no reason to assume that no antiviral or some unknown med could work. I take general precautions at all times for a few reasons, and once...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus

If the person has sufficient antibodies then they can fight off the second infection. If they have insufficient antibodies they can get the exact same flu again. Right? Wrong? **I am not an immunologist or infectious disease expert.** That's right, in a manner, but being immunocompromised is a diff...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus

Flu reinfection is due to mutation. Antibodies to a particular strain appear to last for life.

Be very careful wading into the abyss known as Immunology. It is one of the most complicated areas of biology.

Re: Mrs Riggerjack

Anecdotal, but I have a friend who supports an entire huge family alone by woodworking on one of those craft websites. If you are an artist then it's possible to sell your art, or just do the art for the sake of art. I wouldn't want to be forced to do anything either. All of this is about having opt...

Re: Mrs Riggerjack

The core of ERE is cutting back expenses to as little as possible and resilience, which seems like a natural path for someone with a history of being poor and who worries about history repeating itself. Plenty of us grew up with people who grew up during the Depression, so that mindset of poverty fe...

I realize I don't know you at all aside from this brief introduction, but I think a job where you interact with more people could alleviate your work anxiety and maybe enjoy work more. That feeling of anxiety might come from the seemingly never ending supply of reasonably good coders and the eagerne...

Re: I tire of gold and trinkets: MidwestCoder's Journal

You seem rather gregarious, especially for a coder. If this is correct, would you consider a job where you interact more with people/customers? Is there a software sales job at your company?. Maybe that would get you to 55 with your wife.

Re: "swallowing" ​b​lackpill, overcoming it; moving forward; pseudoscience and woo-woo stuff

By the way, working on yourself does not mean changing yourself to what you think will make others like you. It's presenting the best version of yourself, because why wouldn't you and others deserve the best version of yourself. Not striving to be the best version of yourself makes you miserable. Tr...
