@melody looking fly in Times Square
I saw the world's largest train switcher today, processing 10,000 cars per day, switching 3,000 between tracks. It's 8 miles long, 1.5 miles wide. It opened in about 1870. There's enough track in there to make a railroad from Denver to Omaha (I think? :thinkies:). CHOO! (Cc @melody for the train stuff)

Some light work on /z. @melody made awesome grilled chicken for dinner.
Changed the streaming name badge to match @melody's Figma-styled overlay! This is what it looks like on the stream when you were asking questions during the AMA.
The work I did today was just fixing a bunch of bugs on Events & Scrapbook (the homepage is no longer 200MB…) 😅 but had a really nice evening getting Five Guys & walking along the beach at sunset with @matthew + @melody
