I... I now have free CLE access

For multiple states

πŸ₯ΉπŸ₯ΉπŸ₯Ή Continuing Legal Education classes – active attorneys are required to sit through a number of courses each year

NC ones were easy for me, Texas ones were not. And nearly all the good ones cost $$$

Now that problem is solved πŸ₯°

Today was the first day of Week 4 at the new job ☺️

Me: "Principal Commercial Counsel" at a large-ish tech company

Bizarrely, it's been a sh*tload of fun so far

Hilarious to me that the Secret Service doing their job may turn out to be the primary reason Trump didn't commit an easily provable crime by leading the insurrectionists himself Nah, the end result would have been the exact same. The mob wouldn't have been any smarter with Trump there

Only difference is maybe he'd actually be charged for unlawful entry or something else

Now that I'm done with Immortals: Fenyx Rising, I'm thinking of getting the Ubisoft Assassin's Creed IV bundle

Is this like FF in the sense that every game is a totally new story? Or do I need to know the history of Assassin's Creed I-III first?

(Never played any of these 😬) The very same

Only 9 for me, and 3 of them I was too young to really remember I've seen a few more on the list from a distance (Alcatraz, Chicago River, etc) but never been to them

Amid the search for a work mouse, I encountered this creature and I'm just... speechless really 🀯

Do people really play games with a 12-button keypad at their thumb? Image I was toying with this one yesterday at the local Office Depot. I like it generally but not sure about the thumb scroll, so haven't decided yet

More crowdsourcing advice 😬

Synology NAS

Why should I get a [720+ | 920+]? Background:
➑️ For non-work stuff, I'm still on a 2014 MacBook Pro w/ 1TB SSD that's nearly full
➑️ Daily backups to a 1TB Time Capsule
➑️ Monthly backups to separate external that goes off-site
➑️ Mrs has a ~2014ish MacBook Air that's not backed up at all

This is false

The definition in 18 USC Β§921(a)(33) includes someone "similarly situated" to a spouse

Federal courts have held that mere dating – without cohabitation or intent to marry – is sufficient

See, e.g., US v Cuervo, 354 F3d 969, 997-998 (8th Cir 2004)

➑️ Hernandez v State Pers. Bd., 60 CalApp5th 873 (Cal Ct App 2021)
➑️ US v England, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 141837 (SD Ohio 2014)

The new shelves have arrived

So badly damaged in transit that they're unusable

🀬 Both boxes have holes in the bottom

Out of which slid the center support beams, and the styrofoam to hold everything else in place πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

Crowdsourcing suggestions again: preferred mouse for work?

I've been on a trackpad since the first Intel MBP in 2006. I still reflexively go back to the laptop trackpad when working with external peripherals

But considering returning to the mouse era πŸ€” Never tried a trackball. I'll look into those too

My 2 additional sets of industrial shelves are set to arrive tomorrow, and I cannot articulate to you in words how much joy it brings me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬πŸ˜¬πŸ˜¬ Also yes I fully realize it says something not-exactly-flattering about my thought processes that I hear "set up your home office better" and think "need more shelving" πŸ₯΄

Not really

➑️ Elephants: duh
➑️ Corporations: blame Congress (see 1 USC §1)
➑️ Fish: Sarbox only applies to objects that record info
➑️ Bees: blame California's legislature ("fish" to include "wild fish, mollusk, crustacean, invertebrate, amphibian" and other non-fish) Sure, it's all fun to misinform people by totally ignoring the context of any given court decision

But reality is both less entertaining and often perfectly understandable

Hence 2nd Rule of @fsckemall: "Start at the source"
