Commented on Mobile data shows which European countries took lockdown seriously via Hacker News:

In countries such as Spain, it is very easy to understand why the country took the lockdown so seriously. For most people, it was easy to choose to stay home when the alternative was to get fined by police, who thoughtfully were patrolling the streets looking for dodgers.

More than a million people were fined by police during the spring [1]. So many fines, that we are still seeing news about judges taking decissions on these fines, so it clearly overloaded our justice system. Surprisingly, many of them are being rejected by judges because of not being fair.

Police officers can fine you if they believe you are infringing the law, and civils have to take their word as granted until a judge makes the final decission. People were fined in the spring for things such as driving to pick up groceries in a store different than the one closest to their homes [2], or because of walking the dog (one of the very few exceptions to leave the house) "too far from home", despite the law having never settled an official maximum distance [3].

Perdiendo cultura

Enlace

Interesante: una buena parte de las películas y audios creados en los años 20 del siglo XX se está perdiendo porque los soportes físicos se están desintegrando, si es que no se han perdido ya.

El problema, tal como cuentan en el documento web que anuncia algunos de los trabajos que el próximo 1 de enero entrará a dominio público (como la versión original en inglés de El Gran Gatsby), es que los historiadores no lo tienen fácil para digitalizar obras que todavía conserven copyright, por lo de los derechos de autor, así que muchos de estos trabajos se acaban perdiendo antes de que puedan ser salvados.

Moraleja de la historia: si la contraseña no está en el KeePass (y sincronizada a al menos un dispositivo), la contraseña no existe.
