mutual aid networks, covid-19, face masks
We joined a local mutual aid network for our precinct. @mlemweb is making masks to give away https://octodon.social/@mlemweb/103935298482340086
... which are modified from our friend Dan's (CC BY!) design to give away to people who need them: https://talldog.dozuki.com/Guide/How+to+make+a+respirator-style+face+mask/2
Now may be a good time to set up a mutual aid network. It can be as simple as a mailing list for your neighborhood where people post what they [HAVE] vs what they [NEED] and help each other out.
@danslerush same for me,
I have 4 different SSDs:
2 x WIN (work/gaming)
and 2 x LINUX (pop_os/zorin) ...
Just select on bootup. It's the best of all worlds🤙 .
@danslerush I'm always surprised with this HUGE leap of faith that is suggested for people to move to linux.
Why not "for the price of a harddrive you could move to linux without the risk" ?
These articles very often point to a new system, "all in" type of approach.
I found the best and least stressful way for people is just order a new hard drive, unplug the original and plug in the new one, install linux. Try it out, if it doesn't work, plug the original back in....no stress:)
@danslerush good point!
@danslerush I love these articles, and they always give me hope...until you realize that most AA titles won't work:) I know from my hopeful experiments. Many times anti-cheat software is the problem. I'm glad things are slowly getting better though.
