Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.
Step one when I move back home this summer is buy a dumbell set, a pullup/dip station, and a bench. My oldest turns 13 this spring going to start him off right and have him join me starting on his birthday. I'm hoping Omi burns through the US real quick before I come back at the start of Feb for a vacation.
Shellhead wrote: Twice as many masked people at the gym last night, so about 10% instead of 5%. Two of them (a couple) were even double-masking. On the other hand, there were also a couple of unmasked old guys who were coughing a lot. I might need to stop going to the gym for a while.
Slightly more mask usage at the gym last night. Per CDC guidance, I don't wear a mask when I am in the pool or hot tub, but now I have less respect for the CDC's current guidelines. I already stopped using the sauna last fall, and might need to stop using the hot tub for a few months. I am reluctant to stop working out at the gym, because it's so cold outside at this time of year and I want to drop some pounds that I put on during the holidays.
I'm most worried about what happens to me if I have some other dangerous thing happen to me that sends me to the hospital; I don't know if I'd get in.
On a related note, our governor called out the National Guard weeks ago to help in hospitals across the state, because so many hospital workers have gotten sick.
I have a lot of friends that have contracted it in the last two weeks and I'm surprised that I haven't contracted it with the close contact with my daughter. She works with Covid patients every day now and takes all the precautions, but the thing is going around like crazy at the moment.
All I know are vaccinated and they haven't gotten serious illness from the infection, but it keeps it banging around like a pinball all over the place. In theory this spreads immunity in the community, but I'd just as soon settle for my measly vaccination plus booster immunity instead.
Saw that 1M cases number and am just floored. The CFR is like 1.5% in the USA. 15,000 Americans tested positive for the virus that's going to kill them within six weeks yesterday. FIFTEEN THOUSAND. DEAD. FROM YESTERDAY.
The CDC was considering cutting the guidelines to 5 days before omicron, but with a negative test. What they left out of the guidelines is the negative test, that is the big sin. That's where the politics jumps in to pollute the science, they are worried there won't be enough tests for people to follow the guidelines so they altered the guidelines. I can see how one would lose faith in the guidance.
The reality is everyone will have to end up getting it at some point. Even China with it's zero tolerance policy or they will be fighting this forever at a permanent economic cost. Not that the Western world's policies are good, seems like too far in the other direction. Hopefully future mutations are based off of omicron.
