Have a bunch of topics to discuss. Haven't had the time or motivation to do so. Coming soon.

gbmor said he'll set up feels so it looks like institute will be my primary focus because it's got everything I use.

I set up hashblog on aussies but the default terminal is bash and there's no ksh. ksh doesn't show all the html tags so it's easier when writing posts. Perhaps I'll ask fossy to install ksh.

My mom had a fever so I was worried about that. She didn't tell me about it because she knew I'd give her another one of those lectures about eating healthy and resting well.

What's going on with the Covid-19? Mexico and Spain crossed 700K.

Most people aren't concerned anymore. But there's 987,826 dead and if you were one of those being tossed into the mass graves, this pandemic would be your last big deal.

Someone finally got the time to reach out to my on Signal. I think I'm going to close my Signal account soon because there's no one to talk to. And I don't want to force people to use Signal against their will.

Left sound converter to convert all the m4a files to mp3 then went to sleep.

Spent the morning trying to set up the blog with login and hisacro. Kept getting the same error as yesterday. It is quite frustrating to keep trying the same thing over and over and failing every time.

hisacro and login seem to have found my location. I guess there is no privacy on the internet. They also discovered my journal.

Streamed some kirtanas today.

What's going on with Covid-19? Well, India's still ranking top in the daily cases. The UK has crossed 400K. Turkey and Italy crossed 300K. Morocco, Belgium, Egypt and Kuwait crossed 100K. And in the midst of all this, China still has only 85,297 cases. Does anyone believe this?

This reminds me – a few days ago, I said Wuhan has wet markets that sell roasted dogs and chopped up snakes and God knows what else. I also said wet markets in Wuhan are the source of all these “mysterious” viruses. And I got downvoted into oblivion on Raddle. The reason being: someone said I was racist. Can you believe this crap? I'm racist? How am I racist for stating the facts? Raddle is the same site where feminists are allowed to make posts about hating men and fighting for the right to hate men. And that's fine by me. If you want to hate men, go ahead and do it. I don't care. But this is a site where if you say anything even in neutral, you'll still get downvoted, because why not, right? Why not?

I don't really care about downvotes and upvotes. But I think there's a certain irony on that site. It's a weird place to be on sometimes.

I'm not even going to touch on the racism subject. I've talked about been subjected to racism on this journal before. And I took it in stride. I've also talked about in on my blog. I grew up in a racist country. I was subjected to racism all the time. Even my teacher called me yellow-boy. That's right. My English teacher called me yellow-boy in 7th and 8th grades. And I didn't mind it. Quite frankly, I was so accustomed to racism, that I didn't care anymore. My teacher was a black guy. He was of African descent. And he wasn't racist for calling me yellow-boy. It was just a funny nickname. He was a good man. He was also my Christian Religious Education teacher at the time. Quite a nostalgia. Anyway.

I think the world is moving towards a direction where people are going soft. People are so sensitive these days. You can't state the facts, you can't crack jokes, you can't even make mistakes anymore. And this has all been happening quite recently. Like maybe for the last couple of years. Now you have to watch how you act around others and especially what you say in front of others. Because you never know who may get offended and why. I think there's just too many rules around socializing with others. You have to be nice and polite all the time. You have to agree with others all the time. That's another thing. You can't even disagree with others without them getting offended. It is getting ridiculous, I must say. Everyone's being so formally polite, it almost sounds fake. Like they're faking being nice just to please the others around them. And I know they're being fake because I know the world hasn't gotten any better since my childhood. Everything's getting worse with each year. If everyone I knew from my childhood were a$$holes, how did people turn into angels all of a sudden? I've studied human beings for almost 3 decades and they're not a very friendly species. That's why people opt to have pets rather than have spouses. That's why some people would rather kiss their pets, than kiss their spouses. Anyway, at some point, all of these fake shows people are putting on about being wonderful human beings and so nice and sweet and kind and polite, are going to blow up and fall apart. People's true characters are only revealed in dire times.

And then there's diplomacy. Why do people have to be diplomatic when dealing with close friends and family? Anyone who's diplomatic with their close ones is not a trustworthy person. I don't care about diplomacy. I like being straightforward. I like straight facts, zero crap. If you want to beat around the bush and play around with words, you're wasting my time.

This is all random. I didn't think it'd fit well in an article so here it goes.

Finally decided to get into dj'ing. Couldn't install BUTT on my OS. Mixxx couldn't log into Tilderadio. Looked for an alternative but to no avail. Linux doesn't have many choices when it comes to radio broadcasting software. Luckily, I found a way to do it on my phone.

Okay. I'm posting the latest footnotes here since the past few days of my journal have been messed up. Can't keep up with everything at the same time. My latest focus has been on keeping my spiritual diary updated on gopher. That's been pretty consistent.

What's going on with the pandemic? India crossed 5M cases. The US and Brazil have slowed down to a mere 30K daily growth. Somewhere in the past few weeks, Colombia climbed up the charts and now has 700K+ cases. Spain crossed 600K. Iran crossed 400K. Pakistan crossed 300K. Egypt and Panama have each crossed 100K. Sweden, Morocco, Oman, Belgium, and Kuwait have all overtaken China, which is currently ranking 40th on the global charts.
