Regarding Jitsi Meet servers:
There is a recent trend to use Jitsi Meet, a JavaScript WebRTC application, for videoconferencing.

Please note that these video conferences aren't end-to-end encrypted. This means server-side parties can monitor your activity. If you want to use Jitsi hosted by others, look for a comprehensive privacy policy as always.

There could be additional legal requirements if you want to use third-party Jitsi servers for school or work.

Countries that act fast reduce the number of deaths by at least 10x

This is an exponential threat. Every day counts. a single day's delay lets the cases grow exponentially.

now Taiwan is being praised for its uber-aggressive response.

When we look all over the world, there is no country that regrets their overreaction, & plenty that regret not acting soon enough

This is cool. The BBC Micro bot running on Twitter. Submit your BBC Micro Model B BASIC code that fits in a tweet and it will return an animated gif showing the output.

I imagine doing it on Mastodon, with it's larger toot size, would enable more elaborate BASIC programs to be run. 😃

Would be nice to extend it to the C64, ZX Spectrum, etc.

Tomorrow’s date will be written as an eight-digit palindrome around the world, the first time this has happened in 900 years.

The coincidence is rare because countries use differing conventions. February 2, 2020, is a palindrome whether expressed as day/month/year (02/02/2020), month/day/year (02/02/2020), or year/month/day (2020/02/02).

This happened last on November 11, 1111, and it won’t happen again until March 3, 3030.
