@adam Do you know where there is *no* vaccine mandates? Here in China.

Sure, they're pushing it pretty hard, but the central government has made it explicit on numerous occasions that it is illegal for companies and local governments to *require* it.

Local government officials who tried have been reprimanded or even fired.

Enjoying Ihsahn's "Das Seelenbrechen". Particularly the lyrics to "Sub Äter" are very evocative.

Sure "preprint", sure "not peer reviewed", sure "low values", but:

Wild U.S. deer found with coronavirus antibodies in 2019.

"Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 were detected in 40% of the 2021 surveillance samples. Antibodies were also detected in three samples from 2020 and one sample from 2019. No detections were observed in samples from 2011-2018"


Let the app run with some load for the night, still running without crashes.

I guess deploy it with valgrind? 😂

My company will make the following policy active on Sept 30th.
- Vax proof required with the actual vax card
- If no Vax then 2x a week testing.
- WFH option no longer available
I read this notice, closed my laptop, and walked out the door. I got home and called my manager to state that if this policy stands then my last day is on Sept 30th.

I have 20 years experience developing hardware for this company. I am a EE with design and manufacturing exp. Please DM me with any opportunities.

Yay Heisenbugs...

Getting random crashes every couple of minutes that point to memory corruption. Run it in Valgrind and can't reproduce it 🤦‍♂️

Thousands of errors due to the garbage collector (CGO, crash is happening in C code), but no crashes so far.

Someone needs to create a meme with Blinken as the Iraqi Information Minister, babbling about "mission accomplished", "this is no saigon", etc.

"Apple Swears Governments Can’t Co-Opt Its Child Abuse Detection Tools for Surveillance"

Perhaps, but you can expect that governments will try to add hashes for e.g. classified documents to this database, to trivially track down leakers and arrest them on child abuse charges.


Who could have predicted that??

"Women incarcerated in California’s largest women’s prison are describing the conditions as “a nightmare’s worst nightmare” [...] The new resources are a tacit admission by officials that women should expect to be raped when housed in prison with men."
