“It looks great, it’s stable, it’s updated regularly, and will run on many, many, many Macs and Windows machines… and honestly if you’ve got an old Windows machine that you don’t want to have to run Windows on, put elementary OS on it and it becomes a nice little workhorse.”
Interesting article here about electric scooters in #Wales. I tend to agree - legislation needs to catch up with what's actually happening on the streets otherwise unregulated use is going to cause us a problem.
(I'm someone who uses a 'push' scooter and finds it incredibly useful!)
Today's #Covid19Cymru figures see deaths up 1 to 5, and cases at their second highest - 764. The last two days have been suspiciously low for cases though - the weekend effect maybe. It's still difficult to read anything into the shape of the line of the upward trend, except that it's still upwards. I still have a feeling that we're not out of control yet. But we really should be doing more to bring numbers down.
Aberystwyth university are publishing their daily cases, which is a brave move (and to be applauded). There is 1 case today; there were none yesterday. As they say, these figures are not dependent on where the student lives, but most presumably have a GP in Ceredigion.

Privacy is only for those with something hide, right? 👀
Matt Mahmoudi, Advisor at Amnesty International, disagrees. And so do we ✊
“Facebook, Google and governments have reinforced a narrative whereby privacy is only for those with something to hide. But this is all wrong."
According to Matt, privacy is about #Autonomy. It's exercising our right to choose when we turn away and when and in what way we want to participate.
Do you agree?

Wow haven't jumped in here for a hot minute! Since the last post the following #pinephone thingy's have happened:
* Moved my contacts to gnome-contacts via evolution (thanks @linmob !)
* installed puremaps via flatpak and took it on a test car trip (mixed results)
* attempted to build geary from source but ran into issues
In general, it feels like I'm ready to make the full move now! Getting a new sim card as we speak!!

Not too much, but had fun :)
Good thread on #UKcovid options at a crucial decision point, which I'm confident the Johnson-Cummings government will get wrong again.
They've not made a single good decision on a major issue yet, and show no ability to correct course rather than plough on. I'm afraid the economy will tank further and tens of thousands more will die unnecessarily.
And now the top and bottom of the cases table.
42: Wrecsam (concerning to see that up again)
8: Neath PT
That's the first 0 I remember seeing in a local authority for a while.
