As long as I have to discuss with the bus driver if I can or can't take my Bike or Kajak or whatever with me in the bus, people wont stop using private transport.
And it also wont stop if it does not get possible to buy services europe wide.
@claudiom than the Fedora laptop it is. Feature wise. The smaller form factor and OpenBSD is nice to have.
@calculsoberic @tixie @schratze In private I would definately continue using LaTeX as I am used to it. However, if you want to show off you might want to use troff written with ed instead. If your workload is more of smaller business letters it is probably libreoffice or onlyoffice, and if it is a wiki/blog/documentation, markdown or asciidoc are nice.
@cark this one is interesting. It is a recent graph from salzburg. As far as I read this, the red line is caused by 30 % unvaccinated people, and the green line is caused by the 70 % vaccinated people.
@cark it was never about making covid "go away" it is about bringing it to a so called "endemic state" that does not overload our healthcare system.
There are some very interesting papers from RKI out there, but you can calculate those 90% on your own with simple school math (and some error margin) if you relate ratio of vacced/unvacced patients in any hospital with the current vaccination rates.
I did not rule out the convincing part, but that is not enough. We tried!
@cark And criticism on vaccination mandates is needed especially to be able to regulate its edge cases well and to figure out if the decision is right, and you are definitely not alone with that.
@cark under normal circumstances I would be with you!
But, we failed last summer and the problem is: we need 90% vaccinated people!
- We can try harder to convince the rest of that 90% by some random measures.
- We can try harder to convince the rest of that 90% by some random measures and by vaccination mandates.
- We can let covid just do its thing.
The choice is to pick the one with the highest success chance and fix its problems as good as we can.
