@MattHatton Given that the 19 in COVIDF-19 refers to 2019, it's a time travelling virus too.
@liamvhogan Pictures or it didn't happen
Thankyou #Perth catholics for showing a modicum of common sense:
@tonyarnold I don't say this often, but... LOL
@dirtycommo I'd play it. Of course, I went to "Wassup Dog" in Freo just because of the name too.
Reminded today about how appropriate the 1st Tenet (#tst) is right now: "One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason."
tl;dr: What you do affects other people. Don't be a dick.
@cyndn Verda ekstere kaj Ruĝa interne? ☺
And 3. Thanks, 96fm.
Part 2. Yay ☺
covid-19, stupid people
In doing some research, I found a WHO document with instructions on bulk making a hand sanitiser. It's mostly ethanol (or isopropyl alcohol). I made a small batch (because I work in a pharmacy with a compounding lab and I can do that sort of stuff) and it seems pretty good. Very liquid (only a token amount of glycerol and nothing gel-like).
Made me think, if you use it properly, you could just use metho.
Well, this is a new one.
I just received (through my Esperanto club's account) a very detailed 419-scam email, written in perfect #esperanto.
I think I might print it out and take it to the next meeting as a translation exercise 😆
covid-19, stupid people
Dark Lord save us all.
Had someone in the pharmacy today suggesting that they would just make some of their own hand sanitiser. Going to use aloe vera, witch-hazel and some essential oils. No mention of anything, you know, sanitising! And wouldn't be told that soap and water works pretty well.
I'd make a comment about a Darwin award winner, but other people are going to get sick because of that stupidity too.
covid-19 auspol petition
Not generally an online petition kind of guy, but this one is definitely worth it.
Any Subway Tooter users here? It's been my favourite fedi client for some time but I'm running into problems with links in toots refusing to open. A pop up pops up and only shows "cancel" and nothing about opening it. I have a work around but it's a pain.
Failing any solution, anyone else want to sell me on their favourite client?
