The DQYDJ Weekender, 1/28/2023

Hey folks! I'm still here, don't worry. Yes, it's been a while since I addressed you directly (by my math, it's been since... January of last year). But everything's great over here. By way of a reason – not an excuse – last year, we moved from California to New Hampshire, and the new house has […]

The DQYDJ Weekender, January 9, 2022

Happy New Year! I meant to send this post – or a version of it – out on the 1st or 2nd, but COVID (probably omicron) intervened in our household. So, yes, we spent most of our break quarantined, haha. (Technically, only my wife tested positive. But I can't think of a better explanation for my […]

Ed: sorry if you got hit with the double send. Feedburner is unpredictable, but that should be the last time (I explicitly turned off Feedburner email, now). Hey folks! It's great to be talking with you all again – I hope you had an excellent weekend. First thing: Google's Feedburner shut down this month. We've moved […]

Happy Sunday, folks, and Happy Mother's Day! We haven't talked informally for a bit, plus I've got a few updates for you – no better time than the present, right? Let's get into it. Equity Return Calculators I just finished a massive update to the backend of the equity return calculators. That's the following series: […]

How Many Faithless Electors Were There in 2020?

On November 3, 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden squared off against the 44th President, Donald Trump, in the 2020 elections. With some minor adjustment theoretically possible: Joe Biden won 81,268,867 votes (51.3%) to Donald Trump's 74,216,747 (46.8%). When all votes were counted, Joe Biden had secured the promise of a majority of electors: 306 […]

Happy November! Welcome back to the DQYDJ Weekender, the least scheduled and most random series on DQYDJ... and probably all the sites you regularly read. There's no substantive post today. I'll hold off on any new posts until after the US elections.  But I do have some updates for you all – I hope you […]

The DQYDJ Weekender - June 7, 2020

It's been a minute since our last Weekender. Unfortunately, since then, tragedy hit our family directly – I lost my grandmother to COVID a couple of weeks ago. It's the story you've sadly heard before – supposedly, a staff member who later tested positive for COVID-19 brought it into her nursing home. They had been locked […]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 4/26/2020: COVID-19 Continues

How are you holding up?  I figured today was a good day to write another contemporaneous "journal" entry. These Weekenders have helped me keep my thoughts straight, plus I've been getting fantastic feedback and anecdotes from you awesome subscribers. (There are 9,300 of you now!)  When this is all over, I hope to go back […]

Hey folks! Welcome back to the Weekender.  Once again, this one will be dominated by COVID thoughts – skip if you're overloaded; I'll be posting more real content in the coming weeks. Let me remind you again: in Weekenders, I shoot more from the hip. In this post are my contemporaneous thoughts on this wild worldwide pandemic. I'll […]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 3/15/2020: Reflections on the Markets & COVID-19

Back before I moved heavily into Twitter, DQYDJ used to host a regular series called The Weekender. Instead of fully fleshed-out thoughts like Cameron and I (try to) offer with the rest of the posts, Weekenders let us shoot from the hip with quicker reactions and round-ups of events and links. Obviously – besides the frequent trolling there […]
