Link. Excellent news.
Link. We don’t have 2nd dose data yet. Anecdotally young people can often have a sick day after 2nd dose. I’m curious about transient Bells Palsy.
Link. “six of the officers have been suspended with pay”. A fifth column. There is a lot to learn.
Link. Sun shines on Biden administration.
Link. Annoyingly it seems a good study. The placebo group improved too much! This is such a weird disease. At least did not make worse.
Link. I ignore most Trump things now, but this is entertaining.
Link. Via DF. Even worse than I had thought.
Link. We are near our cable data cap each month.
Link. This is why you can’t buy a “dumb” TV. The smart TV is subsidized. Eventually they won’t work without a net connection.
Link. Much I did not know.
Link. COVID is a biomedical knowledge factory. We are getting 10 years of progress in a year of lived time.
Link. Isn’t this just a T4 cable? Same as Apple cables.
Link. Nothing could hurt Trump more. Biden takes similar approach. As do I!
Link. Surprisingly good review of Long COVID.
Link. Hardcore maniacs did the best.
Link. Bitcoin has true value.
Link. I want to know why they have resisted so strenuously.
Link. I hope one day they do their own DAM solution.
Link. i suspect next macOS release will be first complete M1 version of macOS. Maybe ready Feb 2022.
Link. What is state of his Murdoch relationship?
Link. Glorious madness. Similar to Victorian England engineering.
Link. “common and rare variants in the GBA gene are tied to Lewy body dementia.”. This feels like genuine progress.
Link. I keep watch on Florida but even that seems quiet.
Link. When Apple had pride in its software.
Link. Via Twitter. Almost RSS.
Link. I feel like this may invert.
Link. Identical to al Qaeda.
Link. We are Apple’s unpaid testing team and we are going on strike.
Link. Works better than anything short of surgery.
Link. The root problem is that customers can’t measure security or don’t care about it or have now power. So it’s not a priority for vendors, so they don’t invest in it. (macOS customers, for example, are simply stuck)
Link. “10.6 and 10.11 are definitely the most reliable. Then probably 10.8, 10.13, and 10.4 in some order. 10.1 through 10.3 were also fine.” El Capitan & Snowie.
Link. Easy to replicate. Fix for now is AppleScript – do shell script “killall -9 corespotlightd” on Emily’s Dock.
Link. Apparently ADE is popular on social media.
Link. All you data belongs to Xi.
Link. As a judge in this trial I find that the NYT did not lie, but they were misleading and a bully. (I alao find that Mr Alexander is a conservative of the non-insane variety. That is not a crime however.)
Link. Temp fix: “force killing the process ‘corespotlightd’ in Activity Monitor”. Common with multi-user machines. Smart folders stop working. Emily has it. I read of it with Catalina too.
Link. We were always a bit cracked but we have really lost it the past few years.
Link. These people aren’t very important, but we *really* need to understand if they were always whacko or if something happened to them.
Link. Noah agrees with me that Siskind is basically conservative. His strongest critique, which I agree with, is that Metz exaggerates the popularity of Slate Star Codex.
Link. It was a straightforward strategy.
Link. The panopticon has benefits.
Link. I read the new Codex and it is Libertarian-conservative. I think Scott is in a bit of denial there.
Link. But does he have Mao’s popular support?
Link. Fascinating. Would it work for reluctant groups?
Link. As a young person I *might* have found SSC interesting, but for older me it was boring. I scanned the Substack reboot and it’s fundamentally conservative-libertarian.
Link. Work-life balance is for losers. (I’m a content loser so far; enough money and a balanced life. Of course may judge differently in the future.)
Link. American evangelical prophecy movement. This comes and goes. Be nice to have historical data.
Link. Umm, sounds like they kind of suck.
Link. “There’s no difference in the infection/hospitalization rates of the people who had cross-reactive coronavirus serum antibodies ready to go versus those who didn’t.”
Link. I have a 1990s book on hypertext that’s like this. Semamtic networks. Bidirectional links. We used to imagine better things. BYTE was keen on it, esp Jon Udell.
