    Open letter to any of the “Not gonna wear a mask lol u commis” that hang around here.

    1. Shut the fuck up. Somebody might read what you’re saying and think that you have a valid point. You don’t.

    2. There is science behind all of this. Had everyone in the country gone “OH SHIT, MASK UP” in January (was a thing), we wouldn’t be looking at a potential third wave. Winter 2021 might be horrific.

    3. I have contacts in various medical communities that were warning me to brace for big problems since December ‘19. I’ve been washing all tins, cans, bottles, and any grocery that needs a scrubbing. Been wearing masks since the beginning of the year.

    4. I am low risk and healthy (parenthetical brag BMI 12%), have no vector issues, but because of the fact that I could possibly be a carrier, I have taken pains to be beyond reproach when it comes to everything from shopping to social life. For half a year. I don’t consider that effort to be “bending the knee”. So again, fuck anybody that whines about putting on a mask.

    5. Too much vitriol on my part, and I apologize. It’s 4am so I have to walk the pup. It’s just another Sunday, but everyone stay safe.

    Calming Joe Pera chaser.

    Thinking more and more about uploading all my hard drives to dropbox. 10To worth, work and research essentially, tons of documentaries and rare films/books gathered over 20 years that I'm glad to have when I need to look into specific topics.

    Pros :
    - no more lugging 6 WD Passports around between 3 cities
    - everything accessible everywhere from every device
    - no fear of HDs dying
    - haven't really had a steady base in the last 4 years so have already cut down on material things a lot and gone as digital as possible despite loving paper.

    Cons :
    - cost is $600/year, not awful but more than buying HDs + would have to be a long term commitment as I probably won't want to have to download all that stuff back into HDs later on
    - might not feel the need to access those files as much when they require downloading
    - I do get overwhelmed by the amount of content I store + amount of content already available out there, often feels pointless.

    Anyone's gone that route yet ?

    • Funny, I've spent the weekend moving old backup HDs onto newer backup HDs.webazoot
    • I prefer having my own back ups rather than cloud/online services but if you are moving around alot I can see the attraction.webazoot
    • Delete everything and start with a clean slatedrgs
    • ^ ha, I do often think that HDs crashing could be a blessingspl33nidoru
    • Spend $600 on a couple new drives instead. Will last many years. Only use Dropbox for temp storage when you travel. You don’t NEED it allmonospaced
    • Been using Dropbox a lot in the lockdown for sharing stuff. Not for work stuff, just books and comics.PhanLo
    • ^ yep - if its archival (data that only needs accessed once or twice a year) cloud services can be as low as $1/pm per TB - Dropbox the opposite.kingsteven
    • This may work for 90% of your data... https://aws.amazon.c… - Dropbox for the restkingsteven
    • Consider that Dropbox only recently became profitable. If they ever lose funding, they could shut down overnight, or with very little notice.nb
    • Even 30 days notice, you have a situation where every user tries to download at once and probably the system crashes and no one is around to fix it.nb
    • Why Dropbox? Have you checked backblaze b2?ernexbcn
    • I was with very unstable internet recently and again and again. Offline solution sounds better for me.SimonFFM
    • ALL my files are on Dropbox since a few years now. I LOVE it. No problems at all. 2TB is enough for me yet.Bennn
    • From the 2 evils I‘d prefer Google Drive and not Dropbox.NBQ00
    • I made the switch from DB to a Google One drive recently. DB synching uses up way too much CPU and HD space.monoboy
    • Install Google Backup and sync and you can use it through the finder like a remote drive. Without the file duplication.monoboy
    • Then get yourself a decent external HD to do daily backups.monoboy

    • Sorry, to clarify. Backup and sync keeps a local copy of specified folders and files. Google file stream (teams), does not.monoboy
    • I used Dropbox Business at my last agency job, always had it completely mirrored locally on a server, which was also backed up to Backblaze.evilpeacock

    Got pretty obsessed with those kim jong un photos with 4 or 5 guys taling behind him. I couldn’t stop imagining an everyday situation between them:

    Oh man, we're so so so lucky having this Internet thingy during this global pandemic...

    Reading up on older pandemics, ppl back then having no clue why people dying around them, no global information to lean on for news, medics/researchers working on themselves to cure the pandemic with barely no contact to exchange info, what WHO, what thoughts of quick medicine or vaccines, ICU, all that...

    No TVs, no netflix to chill, no social media...ffsake!

    Come to think we recently had SARS-1, MERS, etc. Ebola outbreaks in "farther lands", we here in western societies giving no shit...

    Put myself in African shoes, waking up one morning and your entire village dead and you have no clue what happened, just the thought...wow...

    So lucky.

    • The story above said 13 died in a remote village, but another story back mentions the village had 150 ppl. So about 10% dead overnight after eating a cimp.grafician

    • besides of this over-saturation, i completely agree with you and I think we're doing a good job in this. where i see the improvement is necessary is thested
    • separation of global healthcare related events from the political and economic factors.sted
    • so that no business or politician can act for his own purposes / profit in the occurrence of such an event.sted
    • @sted Yup! Would name UK, US, Brazil, Hungary, Turkey, China, Russia here...grafician
    • Or at the least we need more/full transparency so we can handle this kind of situation faster and better.grafician
    • I think full transparency is a futurists illusion, difficult to reconcile with human nature.sted
    • We need better and accountable systems what make possible for the individual to contribute to the global information transparency.sted
    • So nobody woke up to find everyone dead one morning. It wasn’t a whole village and it wasn’t a virus.monospaced
    • Nobody had no clue what was going on. Nobody died overnight. Disease wasn’t even airborne. Nothing you said makes any sense.monospaced
    • And most importantly. No internet would have helped them. They dined on poisoned chimpanzee blood. There was no contagious outbreak without info. Fuck!monospaced

    OK, so as a UK bloke - where's good to buy basic shit clothes from online?

    I need a pair of shorts. Longish cargö-style ones, because more pockets = more man.

    Everything I've seen so far has been a bit meh, but then I don't know what I'm doing. I've always just wandered around shops in LDN to buy clothes.

    I live in a strange location. It's in a big city, less than a quarter mile from one of the busiest streets. I am less than 2 minutes from a freeway on ramp, traffic everywhere... just over there though. I have about an acre yard to tend to that takes a couple hours and yesterday while mowing, my neighbors from across the street, their goat came over. Just wandered across the street. I led it to my backyard where it ate grass until my neighbors came home. I walked with him as he went to return the goat to his pen and to what to my wondering eyes do appear but a horse, a cow, another goat, chickens. This couple has a mini farm in his larger than my backyard. I've lived here for two years. Stunned. I thought it was just the goat. Baaaaaa

    Hey I dont work in the industry anymore so can one of you guys pitch this idea.

    Blood donor clinics will screen for COVID. We only need a drop but it costs you a pint.

    The clinics will get enough blood to last a long time, record donations hopefully. At the same time you will have people feel like they could get the satisfaction of knowing they are clear of the virus. You could go back once a week and donate blood again and verify you are clear.

    I think slowly the testing could be focused to donations rather then walk in tests. The coolest thing is that society in general would benefit. If this thing lasts let's say 2 or 3 years and you have a large number of people donating blood every week well then no blood shortage, right?

    Could be a blood trade too and then the country you are giving blood to could verify all results. It would have beauracratic built in redundancies. Also if you had a mistake you will have the original donors information so you could further track down potential outbreaks.

    I dont know but seems like a lot of wins, poke some holes in it.

    • Just poked a hole. China could just mandate mandatory blood donations and flood American markets. Shit...eryx
    • Think blood need is very low during this pandemic and blood doesn't last that long stored. But yeah, cool idea. Vampires will love it.grafician
    • Also hospitals already using plasma from recovered patients to threat the already sick.grafician
    • You would have to allow people to opt out. Forced "trading" of your blood for healthcare is some dystopian shit.nb

    Job in discussion for three weeks now. No movement. Client calls, promises to have files this afternoon, to be cut, then packaged twice and apparently picked up and sent Monday AM to two countries on the continent.

    Excellent, thanks.

    It's a bank holiday monday here in the UK - not that I much care about these things - but as it happens I'm swapping Saturdays working for Mondays off to look after the kid, so that my partner can do some zoom conference for a cool job she's working on, Monday afternoons.

    Three weeks this fucker's been in the background and I'm to get files on a Friday afternoon (I still don't have them), to send Monday AM.

    I'd've added on 40% if I'd known that.

    Buggery.

    Had a dream that the virus came back worse at Christmas and nobody could travel or shop but I had an (imaginary) basement full of frozen turkeys, in-demand toys etc and made a guilty fortune.

    Also, imagine if the peak of this had been at the beginning of xmas holidays.

    • uh oh, sounds prescient. does witchery run in your line? heed the thought, buy a chest freezer and stock up on turkeys now.
      I will too.

    How much money do you spend on food per month? I live in one of the most expensive cities in the world. So I spend around $700-800 per month. That is groceries and take away/ restaurants.

    You?

    • 250-300 without drinks/cigsgrafician
    • Last month: $677 on groceries, but that was also stockpiling for quarantine. That will likely last 8 weeks.nb
    • A bit under 600 euros for a family of threedmay
    • Probably about the same for our family of 3.monospaced
    • Damn. Seems I spend too much. I need to try and save more on groceriesNBQ00

    • A real man knows how to cook from scratch. A real man bakes. A real knows how to preserve foods. To survive. To thrive. A lame man depends on others cooking...shapesalad
    • About £400 a month inc, toiletries and domestic cleaning stuff. Family of four, four pets. Hardly ever eat takeaways.monoboy
