  8. Re: Ub 20.04 anybody installed "Alarm Clock" = "Alarms" ?

    I tried using deb early on and it fails with a message listing a few "things" that are missing.

    Re: What can you trust?

    I don't think the "cases" data or the "died of covid" data are reliable - most of the population doesn't get tested, and for many people dying it's not clear if it was covid, a pre-existing...
