Weekly Update 195

This week's update had a bunch of people drop by and discussion tended to jump around a bit, but frankly it's kinda nice to have some interaction in an era where we're not really doing as much of that any more. The IoT topic got some good engagement as did the fact that we "magically" dropped over a hundred active cases of COVID-19 in Australia today (sounds like the gov just reclassifying what's still considered to be an active case). That puts us at 143 remaining active cases in a country of 25M people which is very much heading in just the right direction. Oh - and I finally managed to buy my lift tickets for the snow too so happy days all round 😎
