Hmm, I switched from to about 2 years ago. I'm curious if Vivaldi is much better than it was back then. There were only some minor annoyances that made me switch, but I don't remember what they were. At this point it's a general aversion to -based that keeps me on Firefox and a desire to do my part to keep more than one browser engine represented among internet users.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this topic they'd like to share? (In case you don't know, Vivaldi is Chromium with a to of cool features added in and Google removed)

Transferring domains to a cheaper and better registrar is fun!

COVID vaccine+++++++

The COVID vaccines + current health measures appears to be working *better* then expected. With 101 *million* (101,000,000) people fully vaccinated, they've only found 706 that have needed to be hospitalized due to COVID. Out of those 101,000,000 they've only managed to find 132 that have died.

They admit that they are likely missing a fair number of these cases, but, even so, I believe that is *better* then expected.

Oh what a time to have my server stop working normally 😖 it's booting into a read-only filesystem after a hard shutdown after hours of the server being mysteriously locked up, and I'm not gonna be able to work on it for days! 😫
