Legal review in #openSUSE is a slow process (euphemism...) but sometimes you find interesting things.

e.g:
Did you know that the #Qt base module ships code that can only be distributed in its original zip file (code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtbase.git/ QTBUG-81503) or that #CSound releases contain code that cannot be distributed (github.com/csound/csound/issue) ?

covid-19 

euromomo.eu/ just launched a new website.

My relative started to get into notion that COVID-19 is nothing more than a typical flu and that the panic is caused by measuring a thing, that wasn't measured so well before. So I started to look for data on mortality that is independent from death cause.
EUROMOMO has a delay of 3 weeks in getting full data, but it already shows a big unusual spike compared to previous years.

I'm both pleased and annoyed by podatki.gov.pl/wykaz-podatniko
It's for checking if NIP (tax id number) and NRB (bank account number) are registered.

Annoyed: yesterday it was giving me http 500 error.
Pleased: you can download a "flat file". A 7z packed json, that contains a list of `sha512(current date || NIP || NRB)`. I could use it with and some basic commands.
Annoyed:
- There's some weird shit going on with NRB masking.
- sha512 is not secure enough, so you must put it through 5000 rounds.

So recently with coronavirus spreading and SETI@Home announcing it's ending, Folding@Home started to get some attention.

It offers only packages for Ubuntu and Fedora and it's a bit PITA to install on anything else.

I wanted to give a shout-out about very similar project: Rosetta@home.

The main difference is that it runs on BOINC platform. It's very likely that you already have it in your distro repository. It's also possible to run together with other projects boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.ph

Around 5 years ago I started noting all my incomes and expenses in (skrooge.org/). Looking at charts it's generating is a bit disappointing, but it's still awesome to have any charts to look at.
