3-2-1 backup strategy is:

Three backups, on at least two distinct devices, at least one which is off-site

As more people have their primary backup in the cloud, I’d like to adjust that last one. The spirit is that you should have one copy to hand and one outside your usual work areas. Keep a local copy and a cloud copy if possible; if not, 2 cloud providers can work, but make sure they don’t share common points of failure (eg both backed by AWS or fronted by the same CDN)

@be @ljwrites I seriously wonder how he got so much money, Gargron, or however it's spelled, when I'm reading he didn't listen back in 2017 days or 2016 days either. I guess people thought he would listen eventually and just threw money at him?

@be 💯 Right. A vaccine requirement is great if an organizer wants to lower their legal liability from people ending up hospitalized.

But if they'd actually like to stop the pandemic? Masks and daily rapid tests to minimize infected people in the facility and the ability for the virus to spread. Not requiring a negative morning test increases the number of infections people at your event by 10-20 times.

racist cop harassment, Uvalde shooting 

Remember the mom who bypassed the do-nothing Uvalde cops and saved her own kids?

She's now being regularly harassed by the cops she made look bad.

They are following her around and flashing lights at her home.
