  2. Meanwhile, in Murrica: "The seven-day average of new cases has climbed above 56,000, a level not seen in the past 12 weeks, and is 14% higher week over week, according to John Hopkins data." https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/19/health/us-coronavirus-monday/index.html

    • @scribus Majority infection will be the eventual outcome, slower or quicker.
      There are two ways to beat a virus: you either completely isolate every infected individual and anyone who is physically capable of contracting it for at least twice the lifespan of the virus, and I'm talking full lockdown, napalmed when opening the door; or you wait until almost the entire population has been infected and developed herd immunity, at which point new infections become very rare if the virus survives at all to mutate over following years.
      Full lockdown wasn't done in time and in any case it is impossible considering the social paradigms of any western country, so the option that remains is the latter. Containment can only be reasonably used to slow spread to a rate to which the health system can handle it, but won't stop the spread, no matter how much a government insists on it. And it also vastly increases the number of deaths from existing conditions untreated due to lockdown.

    • @nerthos @scribus In short, don't lose your mind over it too much, there's nothing to do about it. Just make sure you're taking care of your personal health so if you get infected you have high chances of recovery.

  3. Great! From formerly 4 Corona-infected it has jumped up to almost 80 in my area. 0.032 % of the local population.

  5. My company laptop is so configured that it automatically locks the screen after 15 minutes of inactivity. There is no way to alter its behaviour because this was set by the admin via a policy. HOWEVER I used a AutoHotkey script that wiggles the mouse by one pixel back and forth once every 14 minutes.

  9. I'm somewhat unhappy with Unity's HTML5 WebGL export. I have exported my game jam game https://adiwan.itch.io/lasso-loop-whiplash-webgl and it has ugly z-fighting and weird lighting issues at some overlapping geometry. I looked into everything I could, like adjusting the far and near plane or all shadow and lighting settings. I'm stumped. The compiled versions are fine.

  24. Well, I got off the phone with some dork local politician. Told him four times now I'll never vote for him; might still, haven't looked into his positions. But, he needs to be punished for daring to spam me. E-mail, said "Leave me alone." So he calls, I say "Seriously, no." So he has some rando volunteer text me. Like I said, maybe he is the best guy for the job, but he's still an asshole and mango him for that!

  25. I've bought a not-dakimakura. It's a slightly slimmer and shorter pillow and the cover is blank grey. I really need something stabilizing my sleep position when lying on the side. I tend to sleep on my stomach and it hurts my sleep quality. I wanted a wider pillow but there are no covers... or at least blank ones. At 150cm x 50cm there are only sexy anime pillow covers. I have too much dignity than to embarrass myself with frivolous prints on pillow covers.
