Progressive communities have been home to some of the fiercest battles over COVID-19 policies, and some liberal policy makers have left scientific evidence behind.
"diligence against COVID-19 remains an expression of political identity"
“Nasdaq and some other market operators record stock prices in a compact computer format that uses 32 bits, or ones and zeros,“ The Journal explained. “The biggest number possible is two to the 32nd power minus one, or 4,294,967,295. Stock prices are frequently stored using four decimal places, so the highest possible price is $US429,496.7295.”

"Even if the machine is dismantled or disabled, operating or not, it is outlawed for a citizen to own one," said Lake Illawarra Licensing Sergeant Gary Keevers. "It is even illegal to own components, art work or boards from old machines."
Yes, because imposing strict liability criminal possession on scrap parts is going to deter crime, isn't it? "Hey, we found an Aristocrat logo on this old power supply, that'll be $11,000 and 12 months imprisonment."

Yes, possibly lacking clarity there. I know I have commandline tools for posting by NNRP and I have the usual tool for posting to Mastodon from the commandline. But I'd like to be able to post to mastodon and have that trigger an NNRP post so I can use mobile clients (for example) to push to two locations.
NNTP/NNRP provide an amazing set of legacy tools that will interop with mailing lists, forums, etc.
Hmm, GOG Galaxy not syncing and not allowing launch of Cyberpunk without a restart. And telling me that I'm punching remarkable highs in number of hours played.
Looks like Cyberpunk isn't actually reaping processes when you quit the game and they've been sitting around blocking the Galaxy client and eating memory quietly. Heh.
Everybody Hates “FLoC,” Google’s Tracking Plan for Chrome Ads
The EFF, Mozilla, Brave, Vivaldi, and DuckDuckGo, say "no way" to FLoC.
The EFF wrote a blog post called, "Google's FLoC is a Terrible Idea."
The EFF seems to be against user tracking for ads entirely, saying Google's framing of the issue "is based on a false premise that we have to choose between "old tracking" and "new tracking."
