Corona Diary: Day 355

Gud afternoon, dear readers, subscribers, fellow humanoids and the like

I need to apologize for a failure to report for duty since 2 or 3 days, a severe IT crisis keeps me busy tinkering on my new main machine. Guess the fukn Gigabyte agents did indeed try to hand a defect mobo to my computer repair lady … and I’m now in the shit for it. 😮

Anyhoo, on with the Covid-19 show:

Astrazeneca is also fighting an uphill battle against the steady supply of new strains and mutations of our old and tired Coronavirus. Of course national politics makes completely different decisions from that information, not all very reasonable …

I bet my mom’s gonna kick her own @$$ now. She was just jabbed last week. Oh, did I mention already that South Africa has sent their contingent of the Astrazeneca vaccine back to sender and is going with J&J now. That’s J&J the soap dispenser, not I&J the fish monger!

Now look at those Bavarians. Ultracorrupt and ultra-conservative German Texans suddenly want the Sputnik vaccine?

Lets think about Germany just half a year back: “Fukn Russian schmutz will never work!” And now they’re lining up to get the best dealio. 😮 Did I mention already how happy we are to have escaped the Western world? And did I also mention that South Africa is on friendly terms with the Kreml? So if J&J falls flat we’ll get Sputnik before Germany does. 😉

But now let’s think about the long-term effects the pandemic had on the world and its powerhungry leaders. RT asks:

And they came up with their own Covid-19 Freedom Index.

I don’t know if they got this completely right. For example South Africa, which is brown on the map, 2nd most severe lockdown measures. Total bullshit, we’re on level 1 almost back to normal now. But I was hoping for some more political insight, not just short term lockdown regulations. I hoped RT would investigate into changed legislations which have come into effect since the virus outbreak in 2019/2020. For example Germany’s biometric vaccination certificate, which is obviously meant as fascist as it sounds, a monitoring measure a la 1984. For example are they discussing not to allow people to travel or go on vacation without this certificate. Let’s keep in mind the Covid-19 virus will fizzle out soon – the supervision and spying will stay!

Hey, not sympathizing with them Covidiots, we’re in a pandemic and have to deal with it accordingly. But about the long-term restrictions on our civil rights and freedom of movement … we gotta talk about that! 😐

Think I got too many masks? Not enough?

Tell me how has life changed around your home? What idiotic measures and laws have your politicos cooked up to keep you under control? As if we really needed to be forced to wear our masks and sanitize and keep social distance. Or won’t you do it without supervision by the police? Don’t wanna bragg but the last policeman I’ve seen was right at the beginning of the lockdown, when they tried to direct non-existent traffic by shutting off completely empty highways. 😉

So much for govt legislature vs reality.

cya guys and dolls later

  1. Not nearly enough masks by ‘Mericuh standards!

    Last week I ordered leopard print disposable masks. I was wearing masks 2yrs before covid and will prob do so for the rest of my life so I’m not concerned about the timing. Besides making others feel better when my bronchitis flares and sounds like TB, they keep my breath warm, which prevents a lot of coughing.

    • 6 masks for 1 year not enuff? And the lower 3 I wore each for only 1 or 2 days.
      The black one, lower left side, looked like it could be my fave, simple and soft and just black. Unfortunately it’s a bit too small for my loudmouth. :/

      • My cloth mask count is… 3 from before the pandemic, 2 from insurance, a rhinestone one (too large), a pretty scarf one (too thin, with filter it sucks into my mouth and also gets soaked from breath), cat one from neighbor, neon pink, dia de los muertos, matchy one with my new jumpsuit, and I think one more.

        I had an LED color change one but it was literally impossible to breathe so I sent it to Shannon Chromegirl and she put it on one of her chrome mannequins.

  2. Looks like you’ve already been to the EOS forum on some of the issues. That’s a new AMD CPU and might take 6-12 months for AMD & Linux to get together on it. Have you tried Windows 10? That should fix all the problems…

    • “Have you tried Windows 10? That should fix all the problems…”

      You must be joking. 😮 I’m not reintroducing asbestos in order to fight cancer neither.

      It’s a new CPU and mobo but not that new. It’s well known and tested and trusted in Linux, as is the motherfuckinboard. The initial error messages are well known since a year or so but have nothing to do with my problems I’ve heard. I guess I’m just having a faulty mobo. My computer repair lady toldmeit arrived in an open box, which made her sceptical right away. And lo and behold, it didn’t work, so she brought it back for repair, from which I collected it last week. And after some happy days on my new system it acted up again, so I’m quite sure I’m dealing with a hardware error.

        • It’s Ryzen 5 5600, 6 core, 12 thread. A very fine cpu, AMD’s second best I believe. Why? It werked fine for about a week and then suddenly switched to wlan and not recognizing the fact that it’s plugged into the router anymore, and destroying the mousepointer and will only show a totally wrong screensize of 1024×788, which I cannot change anymore … plus I get all those 6 or so error messages every time I boot the machine.

          I know what the fucks at Gigabyte will tell me: “It’s your Linux! We don’t cover that. Shoulda stayed with Windows.” South African business: No clue about shit but stíngy and we-know-better attitude. Fortunately I had my computer repair lady tasked with the task to LEGO all my new parts in the machine so I don’t have to deal with the agents myself. She’s on vacation right now, that’s why I collected the computer myself. But I don’t wanna deal with them again! Leave it to the pros. 😉
