I'm developing an application that tracks equipment, inspection records, vehicles, employee certifications, etc., and I thought I'd implement some basic productivity features. I'd appreciate any insight into what specific metrics would be desirable for tracking open projects, closed projects, projected revenue, etc. [more inside]
Daydreaming about a visit to Puerto Rico in January (pandemic permitting, the fantasy is that travel is very safe in all ways,) to enjoy the tourist sites, warmth and some of the PR queens that have been on Drag Race or their drag children. I am interested in post covid PR travel advice and PR drag scene advice specifically.
I'm running a small diversity discussion group at my institution which has some real problems with discrimination and harassment. One topic I would really like to discuss but haven't been able to find a good article/podcast for is what a productive, forward-looking response to such harassment would be. Can you help?

Have you worked with a Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant as part of a workers comp case (or are otherwise knowledgeable about this)? I'm helping someone and not familiar with this area. Wondering how to proceed, how to evaluate whether this is likely to be helpful in the person's situation, etc. [more inside]
A DJ friend of mine back in the mid to late 90s had an LP record with quite an unusual picture of a breastfeeding baby on the cover. Can you help me find it? [more inside]

It went something like this in response to PMS: "Sometimes your children actually ARE irritating Sometimes your husband actually is a useless twat Sometimes your job is sexist and unreasonable And they will all blame it on your PMS when It's you are sick to death of your whiny children, your lazy husband, your discriminating workplace." Paraphrased. Another poem in the anthology I read were two (unknown to each other) women running a marathon and being forced to stop hold handing hands before the finish line.
A bit back, I stumbled down a wikipedia hole of mythological solstice narratives, and one from a linked citation page stuck out: Every year, the wolf of winter chases the spring/sun/dawn maiden, getting closer and closer. The wolf finally starts to swallow the maiden on the fall equinox; the winter solstice is when the spear of the spring/sun/dawn maiden finally starts to pierce the wolf's belly and the vernal equinox is when she's fully out again. I believe it was of Slavic or Baltic origin. There are a lot of similar stories, but this one stuck out and I want to track down the origin and the mythology site I found it on. More on the specific details inside — I've already reread a lot of the Wikipedia pages that I was skimming, but haven't found the exact story again. [more inside]
I'm having trouble finding an online recording of this poem, "Magyar Bárd Sorsa" by Gyóni Géza. Does one exist?
I have a FB account, and decided to create an accompanying IG account. Initially, I had trouble connecting account A to FB. So, I created account B with a name I didn't like as much, but it seemed to work. FB also encouraged each account to be connected. I remember connecting the first one, but realized later the second needed to be connected to it too. After I logged into FB from the IG account B, it was. [more inside]

Help me find a cartoon showing a wealthy couple in a convertible carrying home their newly-purchased art: a large hammer & sickle. 15+ years ago. New Yorker-type irony, but I can’t find it there or anywhere.

Hello! Where I grew up there was a radio program on Christmas Eve where listeners called in requests for holiday songs all day. It’s still running but it was today and I missed it. Does anyone know of another call-in holiday songs request radio program that will be on tomorrow? Google skills failing!

I want to pass along some resources (things to read, organizations or people to learn from, etc) regarding Qatar and its poor record regarding homophobia, labor exploitation, women's rights, terrorism, etc. What do you recommend? (Qatar-specific preferred but regional groups are good too; anything focused on LGBTQ rights and/or sports is a plus.) [more inside]

I like to lock myself out of apps like Google and Chrome so I can only get into them if I really need to. I used to use one called AppLock from DoMobile Labs, which allowed you to put a really long password in (got the idea from this post). Now it won't work on my phone, and the other apps I find only have 4-digit pins. Are there any other app lock apps which allow at least 16 digit passwords?

We've been using Eventbrite to run a free timed admission system for a cultural institution. One of the things that Eventbrite doesn't do is let us limit reservations by email. We are going to be doing a holiday event over three weeks and want people to only be able to register once per email. [more inside]
