Hi all! I created a lemmy community for personal websites.

Let's get this #lemmy thing rolling! This will be one of the few times you'll hear me boost begging. ๐Ÿ˜†

Today's 892 cases is exactly the same as last Monday, meaning that the 7-day rolling average remains the same, at 876. It is interesting that the last 2 days now have been a little lower than I expected. I hope that's a good sign.

It's not such good news for though, where 18 new cases have been reported today. After yesterday's 21, we now have a 7-day average of 11.6 (UP 0.9).

@hund @softinio @peertube

My personal opinion is that PeerTube is great, LBRY is not great.

I have an hour long ramble about the subject, lol.

Unfortunately, today's case figures seem to confirm my suspicion yesterday that the figures were artificially low. They're back up today. Looking at the green 7-day average line in the chart, it's still unclear which direction we're heading post-lockdown.

It's premature to claim that Wales' lockdown was a success;

Hi fediverse, any recommendations for hosting providers? Thinking about changing mine.

I saw one which looked great about a month ago but I can't track it down. I think it was German based with a space theme.. Any suggestions gratefully received!

Start stockpiling dried fruit, cereals, pasta etc. Obviously, advice only for people in the UK ๐Ÿ™„ my own interpretation of what is likely to be the outcome from the Boris Johnson car crash Brexit.

This blog post describes the situation as a 'circus' but - presumably - without the laughs


And now the graphs.
Cases: 705
Last Tuesday: 444 but this was because of a data failure in non-NHS tests. So 7-day rolling average goes up - artificially - by 37 to 922.

Deaths: 34. 7-day average up 1.71 to 25.71; not quite as high as a few days ago (27), and I think the trend should be down from here.
Tuesday is a weekend-rebound day, though lately we've seen that more on a Wednesday. Hopefully that rebound is just earlier this week.

705 cases today . That's good, if correct.
34 deaths looks bad but is not a surprise, after yesterday's obviously incorrect 2.
I'm a bit happier now than I have been with recent figures. I hope they're real.
Due to a power outage, I can't produce graphs until later.

Gair y Dydd: mwrllwch โ€“ yn amlwg iawn wrth edrych i lawr ar Aberystwyth heddiw.

Word of the Day: mwrllwch 'smog, fog, mist, vapour, murkiness': โ€“ much in evidence today looking out over Aberystwyth.

11 months ago I cancelled my amazon account. And it worked for me. It saved me about 40% on things I didn't really need, but had bought If they would have been just a click away. And I found a handfull of local shops, where I now buy stuff like printer ink, or basic clothing. Yes amazon is easy, and often cheaper, but then you have to pay your unemployed local shopkeeper with your taxes anyway, because amazon won't do that.

I know, it's yesterdays news, but here are my thoughts on the @PINE64 #PinePhone @kde Community Edition announcement:

(Spoiler: I think it's exciting.)

Wet and windy evening in The Mumbles! Gorgeous meal at The mermaid restaurant ๐Ÿ’–
