Can't stop the signal, Mal.

I've gotten antsy about not doing some sort of large project.  A side hustle to either push my understanding or create a new bullet point on my resume.  I have plenty of work and other interests but a weak siren's call keeps rattling around in my brain.  So I'll start a project and hopefully it pans. 

First step is to pull a large dataset.  For this I'm using the PPP loan data.  You can get it here. [

It's several very large files.  First is the data dictionary and then it's twelve 400MB+ files.  There is 10.5 million records in total that'll have to be processed.

Next up is getting this data into a tool for use.
