Saikat Morshed of Dhaka needs medicines for his mother which are available only in India. So his @Facebook@twitter.com pal Tuhin Mandal of Balurghat bought them locally & handed them over to Saikat via BSF and BGB at Hili border.
The best story I read this week
Synapse 1.35 is out, clearing the way for significant memory improvements! 🔜!
Lots of squashed bugs and internal changes; read all about it on the Matrix blog and upgrade today!
Apparently today is world bicycle day, so taking a moment to praise my favorite mode of transport.

“Companies need to be #regulated. But the current rules are trying to control everything a #citizen does #online... what #videos they watch on streaming #platforms, what #news they access or what they speak on #socialmedia. The rules should be stayed.

As everyone desperately tries to look for hospital beds everywhere, going to remember that the government’s priority in the middle of the pandemic over the past year was Central Vista and Ayodhya Ram temple.
Perhaps nowhere else in the world does human life matter so little as it does in India right now.
Instead of adding Google apps on top of that, @e_mydata
added open-source alternative Nextcloud instead of, for example, Google Drive.
