    You didn't expect this, I guess.

    That sure is a bookmark-worthy post! (I know we're supposed to pretend these are real movies and posters, but that's some fine photo editing!)

    You didn't expect this, I guess.

    I recently watched one of my old favorites; Beverly Hills Pyra. The story follows ED, who despite his sometimes unconventional ways always deliver in the end to the astonishment of his harsh critics. Without spoiling too much I must say I particularly enjoyed the part where he went to the...

    Supposedly quite the alarming amount: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_much_wood_would_a_woodchuck_chuck#Answers

    If it would make you feel any better, I think we could dig up some old dead horses to beat and fire up yet another SoC/keyboard/color discussion for you. :)

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    So the latest update from Sweden doesn't look very good. Public gatherings with more than 500 people have been banned so my part time job is more or less dead in the water (I work with rigging lights and sound at events close to my college). We can still do small events but those don't bring in...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    The Swedish government has now upgraded their risk assessment for local transmission; "very high". This is the highest level of risk on a scale from "very low" to "very high". This comes two days after Anders Tegnell, our public health minister, went to Somalia. This decision was made by our...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    @Nintendo Yeah I noticed that too. https://covid19info.live/ updated their tools again and now you can view statistics for single countries. Unfortunately for me, Sweden is climbing the rankings as well with Stockholm being the worst offender by far. Our public health minister is now turning...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    The situation in Sweden can now be tracked even closer to realtime through https://c19.se/ . I guess someone got fed up with waiting for WHO to update their statistics, which for Sweden has been lagging behind our official reports, sometimes by as much as a day. I don't know how many Swedes we...

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    I just leave Transmission running as a daemon on my Debian server. You wouldn't believe the ratios I'm getting on my Linux ISOs (no seriously, they really are Linux ISOs). Distributing Linux distros makes me feel like I'm finally donating something useful back to the community besides random...

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    I'd say it falls under what's fair from a moral standpoint. Pretty sure it's not legal in Sweden, although some officials have said they won't chase down people occasionally downloading a movie or two because that would be a waste of police resources. There was also no record of people receiving...

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    Our situation is quite complicated. We're allowed to circumvent copy protection for personal use unless it's an effective copy protection (meaning not easily circumvented), with the exception that if it prevents you from accessing the content on a physical object which you own then you can do...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    The situation is Sweden is deteriorating fast now. Yesterday the government owned chain of pharmacies reported they were out of face masks and hand sanitizer, the government also banned all flights to and from Iran because they don't trust their official statistics. Today we got 9 new cases and...

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    I wonder how Amazon Prime Video will perform on the Pyra though. In order to get HD on Linux nowadays you either need the Android app or an approved web browser. On my laptop I solved it by installing Microsoft Edge (the development version for Windows 7) in WINE, but I literally shiver every...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Actually the number of confirmed cases in Sweden is a contended number; most sources report only 14 cases as of right now so I do wonder who the last 2 would be. We have started sending people to home quarantines to free up capacity at the hospitals in Göteborg and I would expect Stockholm to...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Correct, I must have mixed him up with someone else. I fixed the post. My newsfeed is getting more than slightly chaotic. Thanks for catching that.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Well according to their now deceased infected health minister, everything is under control. The irony there is almost literally painful. For better or worse, the US approach of banning flights from Iran is probably the most effective course of action. Meanwhile in Sweden we now have 16...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    I think it boils down to how it's spreading unchecked in at least one country while they just look at the numbers and say it's not a pandemic. It clearly fits the definition of a pandemic (an epidemic with spread across muiltiple continents), yet they refuse to admit it because either "they...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Usually I'd dismiss such statements as conspiracy talk but the situation in Iran has put an enormous dent in my trust for WHO. News reports from Iran indicate full blown panic with people getting sick left and right a week ago, yet they supposedly only have 245 cases with 26 confirmed deaths...

    Pyra news partially stale from the dragon's mouth

    I finally cross referenced my emails with that list and I'm somewhere in the span of 321-323. I guess that means batch #2 unless around 75 people forget their preorder.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    The YouTube channel "Chubbyemu" made a really good video about how the corona virus works from what we know so far. I'll embed it below. It doesn't contain a lot of upsetting images but I'd imagine the stories themselves can be disturbing to some since they are so detailed. Do not watch if...
