Looks lovely there.  Here it's cold and rainy and generally yuck.

Our 2-4 inches of snow turned out to not even be a covering of wet ground, but it is supposed to clear up.

So no shoveling today

Got the system that failed Monday working again. And broken again. Dell SupportAssist installs an URGENT NVIDIA driver update and that crashes and corrupts the system. Going to BIOS screen and having SupportAssist go back to last recovery point fixes it

Apparently some conflict between a Windows update and the NVIDIA driver. Analyzing the crash dump helped

CDC director reverses course, now open to changing definition of 'fully vaccinated'

WASHINGTON (TND) — The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opened the door to changing the definition of “fully vaccinated” during the White House COVID-19 Response Team’s Wednesday news conference.

“We are continuing to follow that science and it is literally evolving daily,” responded CDC Director Rochelle Walensky when asked whether it was time to change the definition of fully vaccinated to three doses. “As that science evolves, we will continue to review the data and update our recommendations as necessary.”

What matters isn't how vaccinated people are, but how immune. Natural immunity makes a big difference, even WITH vaccinations. Turns out vaccinated + breakthrough case gives very strong immunity. No need for booster, probably.

But resistance is futile. I still hope my booster will give some cool Borg cyborg attachments.

The Senator from coal-mining West Virginia has ensured that many Democrats will get lumps of coal in their stockings this Christmas.

Manchin deserves an award. Not a First Prize---he is, after all, still a Democrat---but he should certainly receive an Honorable Manchin.
