Our chart shows the history of polio in the US.

In the first half of the century big outbreaks were common and left many paralyzed and some dead.

Once the vaccine was developed, cases dropped and by 1979 the US was declared polio-free.

You can't make this up: The Washington Post, which is owned by mega-oligarch Jeff Bezos (who has $130 BILLION in wealth) published an oped calling for elites to have an even "bigger say in choosing the president"

They already control basically everything!

#Brexit working as intended I guess: 'Google is planning to move its British users’ accounts out of the control of EU privacy regulators, placing them under U.S. jurisdiction instead. The shift, prompted by Britain’s exit from the EU, will leave the sensitive personal information of tens of millions with less protection & within easier reach of British law enforcement.'

#help the database for my #mastodon instance keeps getting larger and larger. M media folder keeps filling up all my disk space.... what can I do? Is there a way to cull old posts from my DB? Especially the toots my users didn't publish?

Wow, I thought it was Thursday, good 😁

@snder I wonder, do you use relays for your mastodons?

I've been called by the BIPT department responsible, and they explained to me there are 2 types of licenses,
- A personal call type (5y valid)
- 3 station type licenses (1y valid)
So I've gotten the station type renewal.
The station licenses are for the equipment: Portable, Mobile, Home
If you have a 2nd home, you need to get an extra station license...
