COVID-19 and Apathy

2020 is the year of the Covid. I honestly don’t know if the government measures in my country are too extreme or not extreme enough. They certainly violate my sense of freedom. Not that I’m unwilling to help out in a crisis. I don’t want this bug spreading about. I also don’t want to find food vanishing from store shelves because of a total collapse in the food chain. I’m talking the infrastructure from farmer to supermarket shelf.

Food comes from somewhere, right? And somehow it finds its way to your grocery cart. It’s actually a complicated deal. Break the chain and feel the pain. It is so easy to break the economy enough that more people die from starvation than from COVID-19.

About the apathy part. I haven’t been posting here in a while. Then when I tried to login, I found that my SSL certificate wasn’t simply expired. It was revoked! That means no one could visit the site. I get on average about 2-3 page views per month. I’m sure that figure has dropped.

My quick fix was to get a new SSL certificate. That’s a bunch of ammunition I can’t buy now. Mind you, the trip to the range is far and I’m social distancing in competition with the former Apollo Astronauts. Getting to the moon isn’t easy. So I’m doing the next best thing. OK, Antarctica is too expensive as well. So I guess stay at home is all I’m doing.

I can’t help but think that something is not right with this bug. I guess we shall have to see how Sweden does. I’m wondering if they don’t have the right answer after all.
