    Looks like there will be a shutdown of non-essential services in NSW, Australia. It's unfortunate it's come down to this but the cases keep piling up and there's still people trying to live a normal life going out and socializing. Up until a couple of days ago, beaches and pubs were full but now the government has to step in.

    Does sound like someone that's very self-centered and doesn't understand the impact they (as an infected and contagious individual) could have on others, even after those others mentioned their...

    While I’m very aware COVID-19 can be lethal for the elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system or respiratory difficulties, the experience of a young, relatively fit patient seems out of proportion to the panic and fear I’ve encountered since my diagnosis.

    I went from patient to pariah.

    But from this personal experience I feel it’s time to calm down

    My headache was unusual. Beyond that, the symptoms were a mild sore throat and lethargy.

    Does sound like someone that's very self-centered and doesn't understand the impact they (as an infected and contagious individual) could have on others, even after those others mentioned their concerns. Just because you are young, healthy and can afford to take sick leave does not mean those are not concerns for others.

    Not sure if it's possible in other editors, but I've set up Atom so every time I save it runs black on the file.

    the black tool must (as far as I'm aware) also be run from a terminal

    I can vouch for Summoner Wars, rules are simple so even people that are not usually into board games can pick it up and play. The multiple decks allow for different strategies and add a lot variety to the gameplay.

    I've repurposed an old laptop as a media center/server, it has the following:

    • Kodi, it's connected to the TV and is where I watch everything. Great for watching twitch!
    • Deluge server for torrenting.
    • Sonarr to automatically download series.
    • Samba for file sharing.
    • Syncthing for back ups and syncing files between desktop and laptop.
    • Pi-hole for blocking ads at the network level.

    I think my next project will be to set up a wiki on it.

    Hollow Knight is my favorite metroidvania ever. The thing I liked the most that I see the less comments about is how tight the controls are; Every time I died I was to blame for it.
    I also really liked that while the bosses were difficult, I didn't need to research how to deal with them; after fighting them enough times the game taught me how to deal with them.
