The German Federal Ministry of Health and the Robert Koch-Institut operate a web form which you have to fill out when you enter Germany from a COVID-19 high-risk area.
I had to submit my data, so I took a glimpse at what it does in the background.

tech, command-lines 

It’s a shame that the only decent command-line we have is the Linux/Unix ecosystem. There are reasons it is the way it is, esp. the fact that most hobbyist devs are programmers/engineers (way too few designers, writers, sensibility readers etc., & the precious ones we have get little respect).

But a cmdline could be all of:

- fully decolonised
- discoverable
- consistent
- documented
- cute

& the fact that ours isn’t is taken to be an essential limitation of cmdlines…

free software, repost to public 

When my lil dictionary is updating the db, it shows a minimal ascii animation of a steaming coffee mug, and goes like ‘X, done… Y, done… All done! $0 is ready to use, enjoy!’ In modern computers this doesn’t even take time anymore, but this little detail is by far what I got most praise on it (2nd most praised is the fact that it’s ‘pretty’, that I took care with colours and Unicode etc. in a cmdline app).

more cuteness and gentleness in sofware pls

free software, repost to public 

we have a fortunes-off file so you can print offensive quotes at login time. No distro I know of comes with a fortunes-supportive file that lists encouraging, calming quotes.

You can make sudo(8) insult users when they type their passwords wrong ("Defaults insults" in sudoers). There's no option to make sudo be gentle and understanding when you mistype.

I grew up in free software circles and only really learned any emotional skills after growing out of them.

Corona, Wirksamkeit Stoffmasken bestätigt 

Das Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) hat die Wirksamkeit von Stoffmasken untersucht.

" Das Ergebnis: Masken haben eine deutlich positive Wirkung, obwohl kleine Aerosole sie durchdringen können. Sie lenken die Atemluft um & verlangsamen die Verteilung von Aerosolen im Raum."
