@allison I use Ubuntu and Arch on my desktop. Mostly Ubuntu at this point.
Windows I use on one of my laptops, but only for gaming.

@profoundlynerdy @Tay0 From what little I understand, some power companies in Texas charged people for wholesale power usage because when the grid was functioning normally, it was cheaper than normal billing. When wholesale energy prices were allowed to go up, these customers were affected worse than others.

They were apparently channels devoted to open calls for violence, and were white supremacists circulating plans to do so. They did this in part under pressure from a bunch of people mass reporting from Twitter.

@anubis2814 At the moment, the original Twitter post has ~500 comments and ~812 likes.

@anubis2814 I have seen a few mentions by news articles along the lines of "Telegram is used by Al-Qaeda", but nothing more than the usual whining (thank goodness)

You're going to see this take spreading today. It is bad.

Telegram is not like Parler. It is a popular app all over the world, used by tens of millions of people who are not Nazis for secure communication.

It is also the ideal app to track Nazis on: stable and east to archive.

A post from Gwen Snyder, saying that with Parler down white supremacists will be back on Telegram and the app needs to be removed from Apple and google.

The BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine is effective against the new UK and South African variant, according to Pfizer research. That's good news. https://www.livemint.com/news/world/pfizer-vaccine-appears-effective-against-new-covid-19-strain-in-uk-report-11610077404289.html

They basically admitted to everything. I love how they dressed it up for westerners.

I don't know how I feel about it. Islam is an extremist religion, but at the same time communists call everything but total obedience extremism.

@psiie google. They turned from "don't do evil" into "control everyone"
