More to the point, if someone needs to be pre-emptively shielded from all negativity, they may wish to put the computer away.

Nick Jr., Noggin, and Sprout are still broadcasting for their convenience.

and in another note, that's where under-provisionning of street cabinets uplinks and further up hits the fan ... Selling 1Gbit/s to 100s customers with just a 10Gbit/s uplink works well only when not everyone's home 🌝

Hey, do you guys not have GPUs?

You can help the patriarchy kill covid, by using your GPU to spy on it while it unfolds (you creepy fuck) and wait for it to expose a pocket for you to RAPE with drugs.

Folding@home's GPU workloads are 100% coronavirus, all the time. The results are already finding candidate compounds for interrupting covid-19's entry into host cells.

Also, your GPU can fold while it does other 3D work.

Here, watch Lindsey Graham put on a teary show and cry "AMURIKA WILL NOT LOSE ITS WAYYYYY" and straight-up outright say "we will do this in spite of any other freedoms" and otherwise (ab)use children to further his political goals

There is a Minecraft server that contains newspaper articles banned in certain countries.

That's cute and all, but Minecraft's multiplayer protocol isn't encrypted in any way. The content of signs, books, and chat are all visible to state actors performing deep packet inspection.

I just want to make this perfectly clear: I will never use (known to be) backdoored crypto. I will not purchase "compliant" devices. If it comes down to it, I will stockpile grandfathered legacy devices.

Don't let the coronavirus hype distract you. They're pushing this shit through **right now**.

If you don't yet know about the government's latest attempt to legislate encryption backdoors, look here eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/earn

Hey Kids! If you notice your cell signal going from 5 bars to 1 or even 0 when you're at school, remember that cell jamming is very very illegal, ZERO schools have permission to run one, and the FCC would definitely like to hear from you!

Walmart is 100% out of paper towels and toilet paper.

Automotive section still has shop towels. I'm sure car parts shops and home improvement warehouses will still have these things.

Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.
