I don't do hackathons because I don't do coding on a laptop and I certainly
don't do good coding while jetlagged. At this point my rig has a 42 inch 4K
monitor flanked by two matched 30"ers. And I am starting to think about
swapping out the 30"ers for two more 4Ks.

The hackathon is one of the things I think could probably be more
productive as a virtual experience.

What I plan to do for the Mesh is to set up a test service using the
reference code that is conservative in what it accepts and liberal in what
it sends. Which is something I can do using my approach to coding.
