zFRAG by LostTrainDude

quote [ Defrag your mind by manually defragging a virtual Hard Disk, sector by sector, or enable the AUTODEFRAG to sit back and watch it do it on its own ]

A little defrag never hurt anyone.

Corona News Bulletin

quote [ If people are infectious before they fall sick, then everyone should wear face masks “when going out in public, in one additional societal effort to slow the spread of the virus down,” says Thomas Inglesby of the John Hopkins Center for Health Security. ]

Sorry, feeling compelled to post a bunch of trending links for your information. Do you have anything to add? We're missing news on political solidarity.

Bill Withers, Writer and Singer of ‘Lean on Me’ and ‘Ain’t No Sunshine,’ Dies at 81

quote [ R&B singer-songwriter Bill Withers, whose belated career in music burned briefly but brightly in the early ‘70s via a string of highly personalized hits, died from heart complications on Monday… ]

Damn. Well, let's remember him via some clever responses in the fabulous Death, Sex And Money podcast.

Chess City: 'A Monument To An Impossible Dream'

quote [ As long as the Eurasian Steppe doesn’t claim it for good, Chess City will quietly stand as Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s expensive reminder of the frailty of human aspiration and the dangers of unchecked ambition. ]

These sort of stories you can't make up: Chuck Norris. Putin. Aliens. Corruption. Murder. Crumbling 90s space architecture. Chess. From a radio feature.

An integration loop

quote [ So. This melody, which was played at some point on a real horn—well, maybe it was real; who knows?—has now passed through radio waves and magnetic tape and digital memory, into the mind of a brilliant arranger and back out into the physical world—an echo in the Temple of Dendur—then through the internet and now into a neural network. ]

Geting lost in the waves of time and sound.

This Is Not the Apocalypse You Were Looking For

quote [ Social democracy is being reinstated in a hurry, because—to paraphrase Mrs. Thatcher—there really is no alternative. ]

Thoughtful piece this one.

At Greek refugee camp, there are few defenses against COVID-19 threat

quote [ Human rights activists and medical nonprofits are calling on the Greek government to evacuate overcrowded refugee camps on islands in the Aegean Sea, where an outbreak of COVID-19 would likely cause humanitarian catastrophe. Concerns are especially grave regarding Moria camp on the island of Lesbos. Special correspondent Malcolm Brabant reports. ]

This was inhuman for the last decade – especially leaving it to Greece to do the dirty work – but the current political hesitation to get these people out is unbearable.
They're already closing off access for helpers while not being able to even sustain water supply.

I had to get my father's affairs in order. You do too.

quote [ Ideally, they have a living will, which helps ease probate backlog and costs and also is a process that makes you think through a lot of end-of-life issues. But most people don’t. Do they at least have an ordinary will and an advance medical directive? If so, where are they? ]

Some opinions on a tricky topic.
