Me and my partner summarised the decisions we had to make the last few days in regards to COVID-19
our first plan was to get @whtrbt to sail us home, but he didn't have a few months to spend unfortunately
So all the airlines are going bankrupt, and we need to move home from Melbourne to Sweden. If Qatar goes broke too we have no way of getting home for a long time. The politicians in Sweden are not doing anything to prevent the spread, and that will have a significant backlash soon. So we bought tickets home yesterday, and we are going to fly home in probably the worst time to fly across the world. ADVENTURE TIME
and it's pretty legal actually. Had to rework the process for a few months to get it within the vague boundaries of internet laws
I have over the past years indexed 99% of all news published in Sweden, and around 70% of all news published in Norway, Finland and Denmark. Recently I started with Australia too. It's pretty quick, an article is available around a minute after it's published. The articles are available in fulltext. So if anyone is interested in using some news data for something send me a message. You can get access to it all through a REST api.
Been obsessed with Monchat Domat since I saw them live a year ago. Can't recommend them enough.
Trying to express the dread I feel to the people back home in Sweden. The country I currently live in is facing one of the biggest disasters in modern history. Linking news and data doesn't work, pictures work a little. It is too big to comprehend. Trying to create sounds or write stories instead.
@whtrbt just bought one way tickets to Straya in December. Will probably stay for 5-6 months this time. Will you be in Melbourne?
Going to https://norbergfestival.com/ tomorrow for 3 days of art, music, sounds and workshops in one of my favourite places on earth.
Does anyone have any experience with https://system76.com/pop ? Want a new os on my macbook
@whtrbt hey man! If you have time you should really go see Trepaneringsritualen (SWE) Aus tour final show at Old Bar. Incredibly powerful liveperformance
Don't know if this has been posted here before. But a recommended read:
