Did I buy WRT1200AC some time ago hoping for a good router with support? Yes.

Was I frustrated by problems caused by unstable wi-fi driver? Yes :(

Did I just buy the Omnia router (turris.cz/en/omnia/)? Yes.

Is it a bit expensive? Yes :/

Does it have Atheros wi-fi chips, that have the best Linux drivers? Yes!

Does it come with OpenWrt based firmware preinstalled? F*ck YES!!! :D

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.
