I took the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine today and I think I already have a new super-power.
I told the kids: "it's 19:50, it's bed time" and they went to bed!! OMG!

Pfizer is threatening not to ship vaccines to Brazil because the government disclosed the sales contract and this breaks a confidentiality clause.

How can such clauses even exist in public contracts?!

Given the new position the media is taking, it seems my hypothesis is no longer a conspiracy theory:
* The virus leaked from a lab;
* The Chinese government tried to contain it at first;
* Once containment was known to eventually fail, the plan changed to gauge the reaction of other countries against biological weapons;
* Almost all countries failed miserably.

Just watched Midsommar and enjoyed it very much. Definitely not a movie for everyone so I can understand the low review scores.

I was looking at CI options for GitHub and the actions available for scp'ing a file:

This is Russian roulette. I tried auditing three of these options and either they use some shifty copy of openssh or I just can't trust all of their indirection layers. How do people trust these things?!

Cobrança por acesso automatizado a dados públicos é uma ameaça à inovação cívica e à democracia; veto já!

I'm tired of hearing the empty and misguiding "ads are the price of an open and free internet".

The new OnionShare is out!

It adds a bunch of great features like tabs, anonymous chat that never logs anything, and better command line support.

Here's the blog post:

Download OnionShare 2.3 from:

Install it on a headless server:

`pip3 install --user onionshare-cli`

Read the amazing new docs that are translated to a bunch of languages:

It's interesting the media doesn't bat at using "Brazilian variant" in headlines but screamed against "Chinese virus".

Is the Verizon 5G pitch based purely on surveillance?

It's amazing how people are still surprised to find out China lied about the virus and the pandemic.

It's a dictatorship. The default position is "it is a lie".

@tilderadio Being a radio, you might be in touch with people who can help me out :)

Today I got some bad news. The disease which has already taken my right-side hearing is progressing much faster than expected. Our expectation was for a similar hearing loss on the left side in a 10-15 year time frame. We now expect the left-side hearing to be gone in at most 12 months.

I'm still in shock. So is my family.
We've taken a few days off to process this.

I'm making a playlist with all the music I must hear in the next months.

Please add your suggestions here ( and share this around.
