Corona Virus Spread

If someone coughs or sneezes or simply talks loud or for a longer time within a closed room, microdroplets start to dissipate over the whole room. Even after 20 minutes there is no considerable reduction as experiments with high precision cameras have shown. That is why opening the windows for ventilation regularely is so important, epecially in highly frequented rooms and waiting rooms. Open the windows at least every hour. Those who complain about cold air are badly helping viruses to spread. Otherwise keep at least one meter distance and do not stay for more than seven seconds near another person in order to minimize exposition.

update
.
confinedrv now implements a feature desired since long by the community: confining access rights to drives which have numbers in their name like /dev/nvm0e1. That way you do not need to link that drive node to an artificial name without numbers. The documentation has also been updated in order to tell that even -ro mounts change the underlying partition if not confined and that you should not mount a partition twice.

Unfortunately someone has intruded into our email accounts and reset the password there so that we could no more access our own email accounts. Now this has happened for the second time. On 2020-02-12 we realized that the password for elmar@elstel.org had already been reset in the past, on 2020-03-16 the password for both accounts elmar@elstel.org and estellnb@elstel.org had been reset. The support of our hoster, Dotplex refuses to investigate the issue. Up to now all emails had been forwarded to no-reply@elstel.org, where secret services could read the emails. We assume that someone has intentionally broken our accounts to delete an unwanted email. If you have sent us an email but got no response up to now, please send us the email again, but only to elmar@elstel.org, the private email address of the author. estellnb@elstel.org will stay the public address for emails to elstel.org. However this address will from now on be completely unshielded so that we can no more detect deleted emails.
