How to track users for analytics in a privacy-first, cookie-less future
I found him. I found the apex douchebag.
Just in case anyone is concerned about how fast the COVID-19 vaccines were produced: it is because they are variants of the SARS vaccine, which we've had for more than a decade.
COVID-19 can be treated with a variant of the SARS vaccine because COVID-19 is a variant of SARS. The virus that causes SARS is SARS-CoV, and the 2019 novel coronavirus is SARS-CoV-2.
Because of this, researchers had a vaccine ready for testing as early as January 2020. The COVID-19 vaccine had, in fact, nearly a full year of testing and refinement. It is not by any means "experimental" or "untested".
Request for advice, crows
There's a crow asleep in my garden. I've gone and checked on them, they're not injured, when I went close they lifted their head up, looked at me, then put their head back under their wing.
The other day I saw someone on here complain about checking in to venues using #luca . I can't remember who it was, but I've just found out about #lucia (on #froid) which mimics the look of Luca and checks in but without any personal data. I'm not sure how to feel about this because people should be using the cwa-warn app not some privacy invading alternative, but I don't know what happens if someone checks in with Lucia and then there's a case...
corona check in apps
I don't use the luca app, so I had to fill out a paper form.
I really would prefer if stores used the CWA (Corona Warn App) because it's good, it's safe, and you only need one app for everything.
Why is no-one talking about the fact that on entry to the #UK from an "Amber list" country you must buy multiple #COVID19 tests from commercial providers and "NHS tests" are not accepted? Enforcing purchase of tests from a select list is pure #corruption. I am living abroad and am travelling to visit my critically ill mother, not a holidaymaker fwiw.
re: Guilty/Onions (Img text)
Q: What's the kindest thing a stranger has done or said to you?
A: Oh God! I can't even tell this story and not cry.
I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were still a thing. One night, a caller says he thinks he might be gay and is considering self-harm. We were not a crisis center!
But as long as we're talking, he's safe, right?
So I talk to this guy and I answer questions, and I try to be encouraging and I'm maybe sounding a little frantic and I'm definitely ignoring the 4--5 customers in the store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the phone.
"My turn, she says".
And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every csutomer in the store knows that call, knows that feeling, and eveyr person takes a turn talking to that man.
That story comforts me so much to this day.
