Another great piece from Ed Yong

Headline - Long COVID Has Forced a Reckoning for One of Medicine’s Most Neglected Diseases

summary - Only a couple dozen doctors specialize in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Now their knowledge could be crucial to treating millions more patients.

I'm looking for unicode characters that are significantly different from one another and indicate:
1. attacker does have access to this information, and
2. attacker does not have access to this information

I currently a green checkmark for "has access" and a no entry sign for "no access", but at a glance, it makes it look like the attacker having access is a good thing. I'm looking for icons that will solve this. I feel 🙂 and ☹️ look too similar

NewPipe is an open-source streaming client for Android that lets you watch/download from YT without ads. Recently they also added support for PeerTube, Bandcamp and more. I can now stream my favourite albums from Bandcamp without dealing with a browser.

I use this to listen to music without wasting bandwidth on video streams and battery on keeping the screen on.

If I had a Flipper Zero when I was younger, I think I’d have been to jail.

Highly recommended.

Anyone know of a way to make a LUT from two images using Gnu/IMP or other Linux-friendly software?

My need: I have a video I recorded in split shifts last week. Apparently I must have knocked the white balance off on my light rig and everything's different on half of the video.

My thought is I should be able to take two stills and color match the one into a LUT that could be applied to the other in Kdenlive, but I'm not a colorist. Anyone have an idea?

Does anyone know where Android games that got dropped might be archived?
When they stop supporting their games on Google Play, people usually make them into instant Lost Media and just pull them from the store leaving all people who used to own the game with nothing. And since they were sold for money, it's arguably not legal to distribute the APK files after this, even to people who did actually buy the damn game when it was available. So they just... don't exist anywhere publicly.
Surely someone out there has tried to remedy this?

world pol, eupol/conflict/covid adjacent, hopeful 

okay people.

we can meaningfully help from a distance.

how can i say this with such certainty?

Glad you asked:
- because in 2014ish, from a distance, i helped a friend escape their country, just by finding out and re-articulating to them things that were blocked from their internet, like the cost of a plane ticket.
- because in 2017ish, from a mostly-broke jalopy and a secondhand phone, i asked for help and people changed my life from a distance.
- because in 2020ish, from a 3rd-hand trailer, i helped worldwide people safely direct tens of thousands of volunteers to local efforts, while moving no less than 7 times during the 9ish months of our family's first pregnancy.
- because this past weekend, from this same trailer, i've helped with maps and contact points and local efforts, another friend plan for entry into yet another war zone.
- because today, i am helping from a distance my friend to organize crowdfunding so that they can help their island nation deal with 1/5 people having and knowing that no matter how this ends, i have helped.

Small help is meaningful.

That's it.

That's the point.

Do what you can to help, real meaningful help, from a distance, and then rest soundly for tomorrow has another battle.

Do what you can.

Be realistic about what you can do.

Just do what you can.
