I've created a nail picker out of hard disc magnets. Very effective.

New batch of hand sanitizer fighting the virus.

I use 70% ethanol, water and 2% glycerine.

Today's act of kindness: I helped two victims of surveillance (mainstream users) with some basic privacy:

Chrome > Firefox + uBlock Origin

nice cp bigfile newfile &
