#Running not so harmful after all, it seems.
People speaking before thinking, however, that will always remain harmful.
Ooh, this is interesting - a promising way to speed up #COVID19 testing, reusing infrastructure left over from Human Genome Project and machine learning.
Site is currently being "hugged to death", so this description has to suffice in its place:
Today I learned that Firefox crashes on some pages (e.g. youtube playing a video) if there is not enough space in /dev/shm, _and_ the window is of at least a certain size.
Found that out while trying to make it work in a docker container. "--shm-size 2g" helped. So did making the Firefox window only about 200x200 pixels big.
The fire truck arrived a few minutes later, and now the fire is almost gone. Good job!
I also noticed about fifty people hanging around in groups, casually talking, taking pictures or even smoking(!). That's quite a lot, considering it's 2am. That's not how social distancing works, twerps!
Judging by the smell, it seems to be some pile of wood - reminds me of my mountain hiking days. Except for the size, of course, the fire maybe 10m in diameter. and a few meters tall.
Whoa, I got awakened by crackling of a roaring fire just a few dozens of meters outside the window. Quite surreal. Made sure that the emergency services know about it (they already got it reported), and am now watching. It's not a big fire, but looks quite lively, and it's rather close to some parked cars and an apartment building.
The scifi series "The 100" is a very strange phenomenon. On one hand, I hate almost every minute of it - cliche after cliche, young adult pseudo-romantic crap continually stuffed where it does not belong, campy and lazily written dialogues, improbably bad character decisions - as bad movie tropes go, you name it, they've got it. But on the other hand, I can't stop watching it, and somehow ended up liking it as a whole, and being invested in it.
The upside is, I can put MS Teams back into a container, so that this Microsoft software is snugly isolated from my real system. Yay!
Woo, today I finally figured out why audio calls sometimes do not work in Linux MS Teams. Turns out it's our corporate VPN blocking it somehow, and it works when connecting over the Internet.
Since the corporate VPN forces all the traffic through itself, I've had to devise a needlessly complicated iproute2 setup (involving bridging and veth interfaces), just to have traffic from the MS Teams process use its own routing table. Quite fun to figure out!

I like to run.
