Naturally, the people is reacting in very silly and stupid ways over here:

- Facemasks became popular, despite being fucking USELESS for preventing infections.

- There is now a black market for rubbing alcohol (IPA) and facemasks. Today I went to a local pharmacy to buy alcohol (which I use for completely unrelated reasons to the epidemic: my computer gear and dirty banknotes need cleanup, yo.) - prices skyrocketed overnight, and retailers claim that "these are the prices we received from our suppliers". FUCKING BULLSHIT, I say! The reality is that retailers are scumbags and try to profit from panic.

- Most retailers are now wearing facemasks (again: useless) and/or gloves. Guess we now have a legit excuse to read out loud our debit card PINs at the PoS terminals (something I absolutely hate to do because that's unsafe as fuck despite everybody and his dog having a total and complete disrespect for privacy and personal safety in the last 3 years because I am with stupids... but I'm not touching those suspect keypads! Getting robbed OR getting COVID-19, not a hard choice to make). On the flip side, some shops reminded that bleach and disinfectant are useful not only as articles you can sell, but also work to clean their filthy and smelly places!

- There is a bank branch near home, the only one in this city that open on Saturdays and other holidays. They no longer allow over 20 clients inside the premises at a time, tellers refuse to touch our ID cards, and they now drop our cash withdrawals over the counter. But... the bank forgot to issue them with disposable gloves (cash is dirty as fuck - did you forgot that banks also take deposits?) and rubbing alcohol (to clean up those dangerous fingerprint scanners which we have to use for those "faster-than-ATMs" withdrawals), rendering all their safety efforts completely moot. Oh, forget about using ATMs too (if you can find one that still works!)

- Pedestrian traffic dropped considerably (now that everything from schools to cinemas have been shuttered), but in exchange, car traffic is experimenting a renaissance in the city of frequent gas shortages. Looks like people now believes that public transportation is a dangerous focus for infections (true), so they're reviving their old junkers to drive like crazy rabid animals. Speaking about gas stations: does those coronaviruses survive in gasoline? Because noone is wearing gloves at the pumps :D

COVID-19: uniting all the world's peoples in stupidity, panic, and frustration.

Well, it’s confirmed community-spread in our area now, and I may have or have had it already. Weird shortness of breath, fatigue, and mild fever—all check. That was a bit shy of a couple weeks ago, but I just assumed it was like a bug I’d had before. Who knows? Testing here is completely inadequate.

I wonder how widespread this thing is already.

byuu's changing names

Looks like byuu Near didn't really worked, so instead he is leaving the emulation scene, having handed over the higan/bsnes repo to trusted people we all know.

RSI?! Ouch!

I seem to hit bursts of depression pretty reliably every five years. In 2010, when the pressure from bsnes v073 to be everything to everyone simultaneously got to be too much for me. In 2015, when the user interface library redesign for higan v094 became too overwhelming. And now once again in 2020, where it feels worse than ever.

Double ouch. 2020 is shaping to be one of the shittiest years in record, guys :/
