Housekeeping: Happy Labo(u)r Day 2022

It's Labor Day in the U.S. on Monday, and also Labour Day in Canada on Monday, so in advance of the three-day weekend we're gonna shut 'er down a bit early.

As per usual, some posts may pop up later this afternoon.

As always, be safe, and do what you can to slow the spread of Covid (and monkeypox, and whatever else, while we're at it). Don't drink and drive.

I'll be firing up the grill at least once, drafting a fantasy football team, and watching tomorrow night's big college football tilt between my beloved Fighting Irish and Chris Tonn's Buckeyes. Somewhere in there, I'll keep an eye on what's left of the White Sox's playoff chances.

What about you all out there in comment land? What do you have planned?

    I'll spend the weekend working. I was dumb enough to save for my kids college education starting when they were a week old. Silly me. So now I work to pay for other kids who can't be bothered to honor their debts. But I'll drive the Maita to work since it's a holiday :)

    Enjoy the weekend, but yea whoever is involved with the tech side of the site has a lot of issues to fix.

      @Tim Healey, If you are 'aware of the issues believe me,' you might want to proactively let everyone know that instead of waiting around for the readers to alert you (repeatedly) before acknowledging the problems. A good instance of "overcommunication is best."

      [Because you haven't done that, your audience is going to turn this post into technical feedback.]

    All I want for Christmas, er, Labor Day, is an option to show all comments automatically by default. (And no more disappearing comments would be nice too.)

    I'm probably just going to stay home. Labour Day is the last weekend before school starts. Any place I'd want to go that isn't at the end of a nasty trail will be crawling with people.
