Hello Divers,

Welcome back to week 10! We hope you've managed to rejuvenate yourselves from all the work for the past 9 weeks or at least caught up on all work some of us are behind in 🙄.

Tip of the week from Jack: "For those of you running a Windows laptop and need a Linux command line interface, Microsoft has provided a sleek looking open-source terminal to run just that! You'll need to update Windows to the latest build, but other than that, you're all set! Also, who knew a trailer for a Windows Terminal could be so appealing? No? Just me?"

Until next week!
