It's on Twitter but totally worth it.
Stay the fuck at home
The Central Park pop-up hospital is being run by the homophobic Christian fundamentalist leader Franklin Graham (son of Billy Graham) https://www.gaycitynews.com/anti-lgbtq-franklin-graham-running-central-park-hospital/
The UK Cabinet is meeting on Zoom... here's the meeting ID.
Today I'm going to give myself a haircut for the first time...
The fiancee wants me to shave it all off. As weird as this sounds, I'm scared to even give myself a buzzcut.
But I have at least a month before I can get a haircut.
I don't need to shave too, do I?
(no this is not me)
I'm bored. Fiancee is working (stupid time zones). Ate dinner already. TV is boring.
Guess I'll start building the Python #Datashards MSDC library
As of this moment, I have 666 followers. Tee hee.
Before I'm misunderstood- I'm *not* suggesting that we throw up our hands and use Zoom.
Instead, I'm suggesting that we need to start realizing that simply building software isn't enough. Projects like Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and Signal work because they're backed with hardware and bandwidth.
If we want a Zoom replacement, we'll need to ensure there is money to pay for the necessary components to pay for its infrasturcture and ongoing maintence.
The sooner that people who are thinking about replacing Zoom realize that the problem isn't one of software but of infrastructure, the better.
The reason Zoom works so well on a technical level is that they have a lot of infrastrutcture to support the downmixing of streams- including a ton of processing power, as well as very good bandwidth between their data centers.
You could build an equilvient program, but without the hardware and connectivity behind it, it won't be as good.
Proprietary Games, Switch, Adult Themes
If everyone on the Fediverse can be excited for Animal Crossing for Switch, then I can officially announce I'm excited to see Saints Row 4 is being released for Switch March 28th!
If you don't know Saints Row 4, it's Grand Theft Auto meets The Matrix, with over the top humor.
The dangers of content farms
I've been watching this channel debunking these content farm videos for about a year, but understanding what the content farms is really up to is very scary.
