  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Hi David, If you use MS Windows, the free app 'Paint' will resize an image. Open the picture, click on the resize button and select pixels. If you change the long edge to 600 pixels (with aspect ratio checked) the file size will be small enough to upload yet still large enough to view.

    I think there's a patch for the Zoom vulnerability. I got this message on Thursday: URGENT INFORMATION SECURITY NOTICE You are receiving this message because your laptop was detected to be running a version of Zoom that has a security vulnerability deemed critical by Enterprise Information Security. Our IT team is preparing a patch for your computer that will be installed at approximately 10:00 am Mountain Standard time on Friday, 4/3/2020. After the installation, a reboot may be required. If you are leveraging Zoom on any mobile devices (such as iPads, tablets, or smart phones), please go to your app store and request an upgrade for Zoom. Please contact the help desk if you have any issues with Zoom during or after this patch update.

    Google is using map data to identify areas where people are moving around vs shelter in place https://www.google.com/covid19/mobility/ You can download PDF reports to see how well your area is doing.

    Hey all, Here is another well presented set of data on the virus. FT is updating this page every few hours. https://www.ft.com/coronavirus-latest
  7. Your music cataloging "system"

    When importing a CSV there is a wizard to help with the steps. The first choice is a set of radio buttons where you need to select 'Delimited' and select 'My Data has Headers' to promote the first row to field names. The next button brings you to a second dialog box where select how the fields are separated: tab, semicolon, comma, space, or other. The last dialog box lets you change the data type which I usually skip because the spreadsheet is almost always pre-formatted. I'm going to have to give Discogs a try. If it's able to export data then it is a good candidate for Power BI (excel on steriods).

  9. The COVID 19 Restaurant Poll

    Many restaurants in the Boston area and beyond that haven't been used to doing takeout/delivery have either completely shut down for now or have given it a shot with varying results. Places that have traditionally focused on takeout/delivery before the virus outbreak might be doing all right, but this isn't always the case. Takeout spots as sub shops and pizzerias are seeing a drop-off in business following the governor's ruling last week to shut down restaurants except takeout & delivery. Local radio gives an example of a North Shore pizzeria that has seen a drop-off of approximately 40% because people are simply not going out. Delivery is still busy in some cases but business for takeout places is down in general. I had take-out for this first time last night, visiting the Bangkok Bistro which is about a block from home. It wasn't busy, the owner was very thankful for our business. We have a huge Chinese population near me with about as diverse a restaurant industry as possible. I don't see overt signs of bias although I do read of some incidents. Boston is a very progressive community and home to many of the medical and pharmaceutical companies. I believe most of us are trying to get through this together. The restaurant shutdown in MA remains in effect until April 6, though it is not known if that date will hold.
