COVID-19, livestreams, info request, boost = good
One of my friends is stuck at home (Bay Area!), and they're wondering about livestreams of stuff. Does anyone know of:
-Anything cool that's being livestreamed or otherwise made available for free that wouldn't normally be?
-Any place that's making an index of those events that are available to watch for free?
I knew about zoos (https://dailyhive.com/mapped/us-zoos-aquariums-livestream-coronavirus), but I'm not 100% on what else is out there!
Everything is good. TYIA!
So, I listened to that Berliner Philharmoniker livestream... and it was mindblowingly good. (Also, I got to hear two great 20th century pieces for the first time!)
They are going to repeat it tomorrow and the day after tomorrow: https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/de/concert/53218
long day is long, but at least it ends with good #food and books
The cat hissed, and the dragon hissed back.
Outclassed, but not happy about it, the cat stalked away, growling.
After a minute, the dragon pushed its nose under a leathery wing and gently nuzzled the shivering white rat hiding there.
"You are safe now, tiny friend."
The rat squeaked and scurried away, leaving the dragon a little dejected.
Later that evening, the dragon was awoken by the rat returning with a tangerine to share.
If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.
Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.
Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.
A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
made it to #Capclave !
