What part of the US? People are almost 100% masked in my enlightened bubble.

Well, I've stopped at several places in New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland so far. Masks were very rare. Nobody has hassled me over wearing my mask, but I'm almost the only person who does so.

Where I am in California, they’re really common, even outdoors.

We thought the printer was dead, since it wouldn't even work over USB after a power cycle. Was not looking forward to replacing it. But played a hunch that there might be a hard reset in the setup menus. There was. Had to re-enter a five word Diceware passphrase for the wireless network with arrow keys next, but it's printing over wi-fi again now.

Thumbs up for Diceware.

Too bad so many places have password policies that reject Diceware passphrases.

The latest news is that someone in my elderly and sick father's pod tested positive. Everybody's vaccinated, at least.

EDIT:

My dad's test results came back negative.

For example, I just tried to change a Paypal password. I clicked Save and there was no response, neither confirmation nor an error message. Eventually I noticed that the password length requirements I had breezed past (minimum 8, yawn) also had a maximum length of 20 and I'd had my password manager set to generate 26  character passwords. No way to get a secure passphrase through that.

Another person in my dad's pod just came back positive. It's the one who usually drops in on him every morning for coffee and, unspoken, to make sure he's all right.
