If, in the course of Hacker Events, it becomes necessary for one user to distance the physical presences which have connected them with another, a decent respect to the customs of Hackerkind requires that they should adapt to causes which impel them to the separation.

This, we have done.

There's a germ going around that causes people to lose track of what day it is. It's called chronovirus...

(...and your present interlocutor who is in the habit of identifying by use of the perpendicular pronoun has indeed contracted it.)

Join others who may (or may not) have fallen victim to this and other terrible diseases (such as hackery) as NYC2600 once again goes online!

...so I guess we're going to find out how many hackers live in their mother's basement after all.

Slackers can join the co-isolation unit set up by @XioNYC at NYC2600.slack.com or you can Zoom on over to meeting ID 519-563-457 hosted by our very own @Rob_T_Firefly

Now that you've heard them all, why not share them with a bunch of people who have also had more than their fill of dumb "2020" jokes? Miss out and you'll regret it... in hindsight.

We are gathered at The Atrium tomorrow to bid farewell to BIOS after 45 years of servicing all the basic ins and outs that you've come to take for granted.

Come to 875 Third Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) as we present BIOS with a golden pocketwatch...

Re: the sudden closure of @HackerRadioShow home WBAI, we have a statement posted at 2600.com/content/lockout-wbai- .

We've arranged a live "Off the Hook" for 7-9 PM this Wednesday the 9th, at the Brooklyn Commons Cafe downstairs from the station. Please spread the word and, if you are in geographic range, PLEASE come join us; a show of numbers is pretty critical.

388 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217

And please show the cafe some support. They're WBAI's landlord as well, and have also been thrown into peril by the station's closure.

We are working behind the scenes to figure out our next moves, and will talk about it at the event. We're also working on getting it recorded and streamed, we'll keep you posted.

Thanks, everyone. As you can imagine this is pretty daunting, but I'm keeping the faith that this isn't the last you'll hear of @HackerRadioShow.
