Nice #hack : cpu cores get just the right amount of load, so their overview on the left resemples the 'bad apple' animation, which you can see on the right.
#japan released #cocoa today, it's #covid19 app. Open Source, quite similar to the German app from what I see.
Let's see if the government manages to convince enough people that it's harmless, so it gets widely adopted.
Rundown through the app, and link to the sources:
Got to love the #japanese health care system.
I received a letter, to participate in rubella (German: Röteln) prevention measures. So that's not like "come over, and we give you the vaccine", but "come over, we take blood and test if you already have antibodies, and if not you get vaccinated".
Turns out I still have the antibodies, in East Germany these things were in order, all children were properly vaccinated.
All of this without additional costs, so with the tax money.
"No Ryzen 4000 this year? Report claims that AMD’s 7nm Zen 3 “Vermeer” might be delayed to 2021 due to “lack of competition” from Intel Comet Lake S for Ryzen 3000"
Newly built sushi places can also look like this, looking forward to try it out: http://www.spoon-tamago.com/2020/06/17/kura-sushi-asakusa-global-flagship/
In Germany , there are now considerations on whether companies with branches in tax heavens should receive money to survive Corona, or not.
Voices against this say "there is no law against this, so should they just have acted ethically, in anticipation of such a crisis"?
I wonder if Japanese companies act more ethically, as they would receive penalties from society after misbehaviour becomes public.

Japanese media did setup a theory that spelling something in English leads to more "air pressure" than spelling it in Japanese, leading to #COVID19 spreading quicker in English speaking countries. Oh dear.
8gb RAM #raspi was just released
The German health minister is writing on japantimes.co.jp on how fantastic the German health system is. Maybe that's not published in German media because he fears being confronted with facts..
If #corona came a bit later, maybe he had already closed up additional hospitals.
Grmpf. Doing screen recording for a technical webinar, showing technical things. In the last seconds of the session I get a popup notification from the webbrowser...
Fiddling with an addon board (~40€) for the #raspi4 these days, to stream HDMI over network. No sound as of now, and still researching which codec/caching provides lowest latency with reasonable picture quality. Streaming Nintendo switch output works nicely.
