Here you can find notes about things I discover or learn but are not (yet) worth a full-length post.

Bolsonaro, an outlier among world leaders in his skepticism of the virus and measures intended to curb it, was tested Monday evening after developing symptoms that included a fever. […] “In my particular case,” the former army officer said in a national address in March, “with my history as an athlete, if I were infected by the virus, I wouldn’t need to worry. I wouldn’t feel anything or, if very affected, it would be like a little flu or little cold.” […] U.S. Ambassador Todd Chapman, who hosted Bolsonaro at the July 4 barbecue, has tested negative for the virus and is now in quarantine at home, the embassy tweeted Tuesday.

Just came back from my local gym. Up until last week every second exercise device was taped off enforcing distance between people. All that tape is gone now. Given that the numbers have been rising in Austria for the last two weeks I don’t get why they did that but will definitely ask them ASAP. For some reason I didn’t ask at the gym itself 😩

Replying to Two Mastodon Instances ‘Sold’ (…)

From a message by Joshua Strobl I noticed that had changed owners. On their frontpage I read that the same is true for the bigger instance (and their about page confirms that).

I’m curious if there was any communication to registered users other than the posts by TheAdmin. While sending out a notice more than 30 days before the move sounds fine, as a user I’d be worried if such changes weren’t also communicated via e-mail or private message.
