@kev Question for you, what software do you use for your blog at kevq.uk/blog/ ? Is it wordpress, and do you have thoughts on wordpress vs write.as?

Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" 🙄 #deleteInstagram

All undergraduates of #Duke University are told to #quarantine due to #covid19 outbreak caused by recruitment parties.

Effective immediately, students must stay in place until at least Sunday March 21. More than 180 positive
#coronavirus cases have been reported. Suspension or dismissal will be the penalty.

Total
#virus cases in North #Carolina is 887,595 with 11,716 deaths
