There’s a distinct air of incoming depression, if not at least recession. The number of open jobs is still higher than the number of unemployed people, but each is trending in the opposite direction in a bad way. I can’t personally say whether or when the axe will fall. I don’t really know anything more than anyone else. All I really know is that I’ve been told in school over and over again that capitalism is a sine wave of expansion and contraction, though the ripples are supposed to increase in intensity over time. That means extreme expansion and extreme crontraction. The wildest part is that we’ve currently sailed into this mess riding a wild crest of previously unheard of prosperity for the top one percent of the country. Every other class also did well, just not as well as those on the very top.

I don’t know, man. I don’t have the answers.

I’ve been tinkering with NixOS for a few seconds and I have to say that I really love the combination of immutability and atomicity. It’s very cool. It feels rock solid. I know I might be deluding myself somewhat with my faith in the “immutability” and “atomocity” when it comes to security, but in the very least it should make persistence slightly more difficult. Eh?

I dunno. Anyways.
