    Yeah, nothing to do with 'open for people to connect' -- https won't impede that. It's legit 3 lines to add in to the virtual hosts file. (Assuming apache webserver) or 3 lines in a .htaccess file in the root dir. TBH as well , not sure why the yearly server costs are so extraordinarily high ~$3k!? I'm certain there's ways to achieve what's currently being hosted much cheaper. ) Happy to offer for free my time and knowledge to assist in getting this all set up more efficiently and securely if you'd take me up on it @Torsten?

    If know ones interested in an intelligent discussion about which vaccines are more effective based on evidence and clinical data, then I’ll move the discussion back to the most logical and pertinent point, we need a treatment that saves lives, if saving lives and preventing the healthcare system from being overloaded is your major concern, then we have the same goals and should be able to debate this issue in a constructive manner rather than wishing death upon those who oppose your point of view. People really keep forgetting we are all on the same Team, the division this pandemic is causing is extremely concerning, considering we should all want the best outcome for humanity and therefore, be able to put aside our differences to work constructively together towards the common goal of preventing pain and suffering for fellow humans. Perhaps if we could work together as a species, 9 million people wouldn’t die from starvation per year. Perhaps if we stopped debating politics, and seeing other humans as enemies, our hearts might open to the fact that every death is a tragedy no matter which political team they were from. Politics has turned some people, into heartless, unsympathetic cold humans, and it hasn’t done much good for anyone, so what’s the point of continuing this nonsense. Debating this issue through a political lens, is about as constructive and intelligent as denying the existence of the virus because you can’t see it with your eyes. It’s time to transcend the stupidity of the current status quo and stop living in a world where its ok that 9 million people are dying from a lack of food while we are living in a wealthy wasteful society that’s doing very little about it. https://www.jpost.com/health-science/covid-90-percent-of-patients-treated-with-new-israeli-drug-discharged-in-5-days-675961?fbclid=IwAR3TYL-ektsjSC3X2nQuREOvP9ZZ4eYo7kIiich9BCyrYXBu_PiPdio9OmQ https://forbetterscience.com/2021/02/08/operation-cytokine-storm/

    Could someone please post up the best available science papers researching vaccine efficacy against delta. Every time I trace the statistics being quoted in the media, back to the papers they are referencing, I come to find the selection criteria for the people in the study is they showed up to the hospital unwell and I can’t understand why more people aren’t talking about how this makes the statistic representative of people who need hospital treatment, not the general population. “This is a retrospective study of individuals who underwent SARS-CoV-2 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing at the Mayo Clinic and hospitals affiliated with the Mayo Clinic Health System” https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.06.21261707v1.full-text Anyone who is thinking critically and assessing this data can see that the reason why we are talking about “reducing hospitalization time” instead of “preventing infection” is because the studies are looking at how long people are infected for, not if the vaccine prevents infection. Therefore, why are we even talking about vaccination targets to allow for normality to return. Has anyone read the Doherty report, the assumptions this report are operating on is wild and I’m not entirely certain if our government officials have the ability to scrutinize the validity of this report. "If you define its efficacy against preventing people getting sick enough to go to hospital, it is as effective as any of the other vaccines," Professor Kelleher said. We dont need to change definitons, we need to invest in research and development Then if the research is interpreted by politicans who dont understand it, progress will be slow. https://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/efficacy 1. the ability of a drug to achieve the desired effect. 2. the degree to which an intervention accomplishes the desired or projected outcomes.

    I think if they knock them out quick in something like a hydroponic arrangement then its likely a lot more water than the original. This would account for loss of heat.

    Topic is fine as long as it doesn't spread misinformation. If anyone's advice diverges from the official line then they must reference this properly (no, youtube videos are not references). Pfizer is running out and unless you're in 1a or 1b you won't be getting it until the new batch arrives late in the year. if you are 1a/b then you would need to go to a vaccination hub to get Pfizer, as they don't do that one in clinics. If you're not high risk and are worried about the AZ then you can just wait. If you're in a location and situation where social distancing is easy then doing that for another 6 months is easy. You need to talk to your GP (or better specialist) about your clots. Most clotting disorders are not caused by the same mechanism as AZ so whether your get them or not is likely irrelevant. Are you on heparin or have you ever had heparin? If so (and you didn't get a clotting event from the heparin) then you also won't get it from AZ. The clotting mechanism is the same. Yes, you'd expect about 50-100 deaths from AZ if every single aussie gets AZ. That's less than even a small localised covid outbreak. But not everyone will get vaccinated, nor will all get AZ, so the number is dramatically smaller. Getting on a plane to europe has a far greater clotting risk than AZ and most people don't give that a second thought.

    Hi @Torsten I'm a lot more security and privacy concise these days, and I've noticed all the links in this forum are not linking to the encrypted URLS. SSL is available, but not enforced, is there anyway for your to enforce/push it? I'm somewhat concerned about DMs, login & payments pages.

    Something that seems to be commonly missed is these vaccines did not somehow magically appear within a few months as is commonly presented and believed. We were really fortunate that quite a few years of work on creating a vaccine for SARS and MERS (other corona viruses) had already been done and those are what allowed this to come to fruition so quickly. If it had not been for that we would almost certainly be looking at something that would still be a decade or more off in the future. Both China and the US had been working with corona viruses for a long time with this in mind. Not just the lab in Wuhan but at Ft. Dietrich. People should do what they feel comfortable with and not do anything they are not comfortable with but it is worth adding that a good bit of the antivaxxer claims I have heard are not on solid footing. Objections are good to raise but they should be based on facts rather than fear and innuendo. I have no argument with the wisdom of distrusting our leadership in general of course. That said, I sure do know a lot of vaccinated people and know no one who had problems from them beyond what we were told to expect. I had two rounds of Moderna myself. At least here in the USA, this set of vaccines CAN'T be approved until after a requisite study (which lasts two years) is completed for each of them but due to the emergency authorization many millions of people have already had them and have been for a few months now so we are not looking at something about which nothing is known. An estimated 3.1 billion doses have been given worldwide so this has actually moved a bit past being at the "experimental" level. 329 million doses have been given in the USA compared to something more like 6 or 7 million in Oz. The FDA would have already approved this in the USA due to that but they can't do so legally until the above testing is completed. It is however already clear, based on the results coming in after those millions of doses, that it will be approved just as soon as the regulations permit it. Censorship is wrong but the propagating of misinformation is in fact a real problem that needs to be addressed so finding some sort of balance is needed that permits debate and discussion yet identifies misinformation for being what it is (whether the bad information is painting a happy spin or dire warnings). When dangerous misinformation is propagated in a way that harms other people. If there is no regard for fact checking and disproven claims continue to be promoted, censorship sadly can become necessary. COVID is actually something that can and should be controlled. I am just old enough to remember the end of polio and still know people who were not fortunate enough to have been included in the vaccine programs in time. I don't agree with the aggressive pro-vaccine stance wanting to blast children with 22 different ones before age two but vaccines can in fact have good outcomes and this appears to be one of those instances.

    Long rant follows- apologies WC I'm over 50 and hanging out for Pfizer- or more data on long-haul responses to AZ I'm not vaccine hesitant- I'm fussy for good reasons Complex reasons. Last March 2020 I had a bit of a flu in regional QLD- they weren't testing for COVID unless you were directly linked to the Ruby Princess, but there were a couple of small outbreaks in the region. But there were a few other influenza strains round, and I was going to the gym rather a lot-- isolating and heading out only at times the workout areas weren't crowded ( this was pre- lockdown but I was being cautious ). Was pretty fit, BMI 24 and from memory whatever flu I had wasn't too bad. Week's bed rest and I threw everything I had at getting better as the main worry was needing the ER if there was a local COVID outbreak Coupla weeks after, serious nerve issues began. Started with what appeared to be ear infection, spread to neck/ arms/ hands nerve burning and serious inflammation. Lost the use of my hands most days, had to attempt what passed for sleep sitting up for 3 months- the pain was incredible. Brain fog. Lost hearing in one ear. Occasional loss of vision. No heart or lung issues thank fuck. Massively reduced working hours on casual contract, but my lovely bosses kept me on while I struggled Regional QLD health is shit. Absolute shit. My employers had warned me when I signed on, but nothing prepares you for the rank level of incompetence at the time you need it. The services are there, but the staff I was interfacing with at GP and ER level were beyond hopeless ( specialists were great- when you could get them ). It took six months to get the ear infection component recognised and dealt with. I couldn't even get an antibody test for COVID after repeated requests Took to treating the whole thing by symptom- have been restricting diet, keeping up exercise, steroids, pilates, LDN, prebiotics and pregnenolone and in the last 5 months I've slowly been seeing improvement It took six months of hard work to be able to use forceps and a scalpel for a couple of hours a day. It's taken me 14 months to even get to the point of doing 10 min gardening a day. And I am so grateful for that ten minutes. Healing is a full time job. Given that flu-like viruses can occasionally cause a range and varying severity of these post-viral symptoms, at +12 months I can't attribute the post-viral nerve and inflammation issues to COVID. Officially the diagnosis is post-viral inflammation, more specialist appointments pending. Preliminary data on the various long haul COVID groups I'm on is showing a 40:40:20 spread for symptom change post Pfizer- 40% experience good reduction in symptoms post vaccine, 40% have no change in symptoms and 20% symptoms increase. The data is *very* preliminary, largely anecdotal, and there's not much info on post AZ responses yet. And the majority of the people reporting anecdotally do not have exclusive nerve damage- reported post-viral responses were largely pulmonary and heart in the early days and the neural/nerve reports are becoming more frequent only now Dunno if I even had COVID. But if I did, and whatever the virus was I can live with the risks of an 80% neutral/positive outcome from the Pfizer vax, wait for data on AZ responses, and/or hang out for more data generally. No way would I risk these symptoms worsening without significant assessment of my options Being in a zero- COVID area, and having the privilege of being able to isolate easily, there is at this point no rush for me to get the vaccine- yet. Any of the SARS type virii can cause these post viral symptoms and COVID especially is resulting in a really high rate of life-limiting multi-system long-haul damage. The spread of COVID, as a possibly new and a novel coronavirus, is going to have significant health and economic impacts on human health for decades If anyone tells you COVID isn't a thing, punch them in the mouth.

    I think this is some gozilla hybrid but I lost the label, excited to see it taking some form. Also very excited to see this butt graft pop, I did a few for lols but didn't expect them to work. I guess I better stop throwing them away...

    This Eileen pup, one of about 12 (looks like I smeared the plant with BAP, but I didn't even trim it). It's growing some kind of spurs under the aereolas, I haven't seen that on my other plants. Looks really alive.
