covid days : 09 April

Some provinces have started requiring surgical face masks when they step out. I am not sure if I totally agree. Seeing that there is a shortage of surgical face masks we would just be competing with the medical health workers who need them the most. Yeah I’d wear a an ordinary face mask and maybe put a handkerchief as added protection.

Noon and it rains for a wee bit and a few minutes later it becomes humid as sin.

I have a functioning laptop that I got in 2011, I think. It has an early generation i5 (4th, I think), has been upgraded to 12 Gig of RAM and a 500Gig SSD. But the battery is dead and it heats up so much that the internal fans cannot keep up and the whole thing just eventually turns itself off. I don’t use it anymore but it can still be useful. I’ll likely clean it up tinker with the thing within the week or the next. I do have to preoccupy myself in these covid days.

Today was mostly filled with chores and I see doing more of it tomorrow.
