A 4-post collection

Sunday, Day 0, Back onto the bullshit

Plague news:

  • 11 174 new cases
  • 62 919 total active cases
  • 365 hospitalisations
  • 17 in the ICU

Vax news:

  • Not available because the data is 404'd

URGH I hate that I can't update the stats nor easily compare the states and territories.

I am back to early bedtimes because Long Monday is back on because D&D. I do these things to myself...

Good news on a personal level:
- I am now a Twitch Affiliate! Yay... ::curlytoot noise:: - My editor is back to business. WOOOT!

Which means I can set up bells and whistles on my stream henceforth. At a later date.

  • You're doing the tests wrong
  • They can use CRISPR to target fat cells

Stories soon.
