She rolled onto her back, the ring on her collar chiming that special way that made her eyes go soft. Some of the best engineering I've ever done, and I've enchanted flight-hardware for satellites. "Welcome back."

Her "Mmm" was muzzy, but she rolled towards me, throwing an arm across my hips as I sat up in bed. "Person," she said.

My eyes grew soft as I lifted her hair free of tangle. I was her Person. A gift I would be a lifetime paying back.

Except this year April Fools has been called of on account of no one having bandwidth for this foolishness during a pandemic. Which makes TDoV 2020 the first one I have any interest in.

The Day I Cracked Eggs.

I'm taking this TDoV by taking a day off of work.

Not because of TDoV, that's coincidental. I'm merely a bit burnt out.

I am also "a 1.4 Mbit internet pipe was good enough for 3000 employees" years old.

We were able to get away with that because SaaS simply didn't exist back then, and everyone knew that video was too expensive for online.

For work, the internet was for email. research, and fucking around. When 'weatherbug' arrived, a systray tool that allowed easy lookup of weather, it was an appreciable hit to our internet usage.

I am "installed Win95 (several times) using over 15 floppy-disks" years old.

That pain was so bad we put CD-ROM drives in all our next batch of desktops, in spite of area managers not wanting them due to people _might_ bring CDs from home to listen to.

"Last year, we discovered during testing that about 99% of notification prompts go unaccepted, with 48% being actively denied by the user."
