@wiml:matrix.orgwiml Anyone taking advantage of the phase 2 reopening? I'm still being pretty cautious (I have some vulnerable family) but looking forward to a restaurant meal sometime 23:30:15
@prasket:prasket.netprasketWe have not, I see way too many people around without masks on and see news all over of cases rising again. I would rather not risk it. I have been getting take-out from our usual spots if they are open but we have started cooking way more. 😁 23:42:18

@ruin-ghost:matrix.orgruin-ghostI've been wearing a mask when I go out, as usual. The local bodega and some other places I go still require or recommend it, but I'd do it anyway.00:56:03
@captainstack:matrix.orgCaptainStack My family went to Portage Bay for Father's Day 15:13:48
@captainstack:matrix.orgCaptainStackFirst restaurant sit down since the start15:14:01
@captainstack:matrix.orgCaptainStackIt was nice15:14:06
@prasket:prasket.netprasket I was just looking at the kingcounty.gov website and saw we have been in an upward trend of cases since mid-May. I have no idea why we are in Phase 2. 15:15:06
@prasket:prasket.netprasket I also saw a story on the guardian about all these new cases that are popping up in the south and California are younger people vs the initial wave of older folks in homes. :( 15:16:00

@aladenrex:gryzzltest.modular.imAlex Nice...all the different names is definitely confusing. There's also "synapse" (reference homeserver implementation) and "vector.im" (default identity server) @_@ 19:49:46
@wiml:matrix.orgwiml I think it's good for specific clients to have a name that's not the same as the system as a whole … people will get confused either way, but I think that some confusion is easier to dispel than others. I usually don't have trouble explaining "Riot is a program you use to do matrix stuff, but you can do matrix stuff with other programs too" but going the other way is more of an uphill battle 19:57:51
@captainstack:matrix.orgCaptainStackI often use the comparison to email, which still requires some explanation but at least gives people a point of reference they can easily understand.20:07:37

@captainstack:matrix.orgCaptainStackHey gang, how's everyone doing? Staying cool?21:06:17
@aladenrex:gryzzltest.modular.imAlexMy house has a large window facing west which turns the living room into a greenhouse every night πŸ™ƒ but my wife just installed a screen door yesterday which helps a lot21:33:06
@prasket:prasket.netprasket Doing OK, hanging in there with the heat. Looking forward to fall. :) 21:35:12

@jnd0:matrix.orgjnd0I've never lived somewhere the sun stays up so late before in the summer, it's pretty great14:03:28
@prasket:prasket.netprasket It is pretty nice, but if you haven’t been here for the winter we get the opposite, its dark by around 4:00 PM. Which I love but hey. 14:15:46
@jnd0:matrix.orgjnd0I moved here on Jan 1st so I got a bit of the winter, the biggest change for me was how quickly things shut down whenever snow was predicted14:17:15
@jnd0:matrix.orgjnd0There was one day when it was predicted to snow but didn't, but schools, social events etc had already been cancelled14:17:48
