I think I'll start writing down some things concerning the war in Ukraine that I would otherwise just write in a diary. That way it's easy to look up later, at what moment I started to notice certain things.

I returned to Tallinn this evening - work tomorrow. In the supermarket it becomes clear that people have started hoarding again. This time it's not toilet paper.

It all started a few days ago when the salt disappeared from the shelves overnight. A colleague called my wife: she had run out of salt, went to the grocer, but there was none left in the whole city. My wife told me this on the phone. It was immediately noticeable that she already was in a slight panic. She told me to have a look at the shops on the island if there was anything left. Salt? What do you need salt for? For salting and preserving? It was probably too late for that.

But as always, I do the most absurd things when my wife tells me to. At the first supermarket, big surprise: no salt. Where the salt should be on the shelf, there was nothing but a big gap. In the next supermarket the same. In the third supermarket I could find salt: next to a big gap there were a few packages left, very unusual packaging. Imported from Finland. That rang a bell.

In the morning I had read a strange headline in the newspaper: "Russian-language books still available in bookstores." One of those headlines you skim until your brain starts thinking, wait a minute, wait a minute, what? It said that in the meantime all goods of Russian origin had been removed from the shelves, but russian books will continue to be on sale. So that was it. Our salt here comes almost exclusively from Russia and Belarus.

In Tallinn, the situation was already quite different. The shelves with canned goods were only sparsely filled. Buckwheat was completely sold out. There were also no matches. People are buying matches like crazy, said the woman at the checkout. No doubt these people can still remember wars. If we would run out of matches, we'd really be screwed. All our heating completly depends on firewood.

@aral There was an old joke from Soviet times...

A guy comes every morning to a newsstand, buys paper, quickly glances over the front page and throws the paper into bin.
- Why do you do it?
- I'm only looking at obituaries.
- But they're on last page?
- This one will be on the first.

Always on internet and computers are terrible. It has created the context for mass surveillance, DRM, subscription software, and so much more to our detriment than any benefit to life or society.

Trying to wrap my head around spec.

IPv4 addresses used to be gratis. Today they're selling for ~40 USD each. Ford (!!) got 16.7 million IPs for free, hardly using them. Today they're worth $670M, a better value increase than any crypto currency. At the same time new ISPs can't be started because lack of IPs.
