So please don't draw any sort of equivalency between the US and China, it doesn't hold up

The US just bought 90% of the antiviral drug that has shown the greatest efficiency against Covid, leaving the rest of the planet with empty hands. That's actively hostile against... well anyone else. It's no longer soft power shit, they're actively stepping on everyone else for their sole advantage

The worst thing is that all this won't even help most Americans. They'll just rack up the prices and leave it collecting dust without being put to use until someone pays the loads of money they want

"China is not the socialist paradise it claims to be"

I don't give a single fuck about whatever bad things you have to say about China because honestly it pales and will always pale at the face of how much the United States harms the rest of the planet

Well I learnt something from the #crostini #fosdem talk. Apparently they have wired up DNS so you can hop from one container to another simply by using the alias name. Handy:

I'm enjoying the experience of seamlessly using Dropbox and Google Drive on my #Chromebook and Phone. I have a 4TB file server that I would love to do similar functionality on. Any suggestions on how I could make that space accessible on my phone?

Been thinking about the future of my accounts. I initially saw my account as a stream of my consciousness where I occasionally post about random stuff. I haven't really done much of that so I don't know what to focus on for this account. I'm currently thinking of stuff to write for a and a blog on @write_as and obviously I can boost those feeds from here but other than that I'm not sure. Should I do a poll on what you guys might like to see here?
