Lofty issues indeed.
Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe, but what would happen if it ran out?

mate same same (but different) here in AUS too...

Security is one of the projects "side effects", there are package repositories on the onion (tor) network for example.

 I haven't tried those yet.
I simply flipped my existing debian over to Devuan ..
It went remarkably smoothly.

Though it should be said I've been using debian since 1999 or something about there.
So I am too confident with pounding the thing  into what I think I want :)

+Lev Lafayette with a straight assessment of the probable outcomes for this fed election...

Here is the original blog entry:
http://isocracy.org/content/day-election

The comments on the original post are excellent.
 
The Coalition will win tomorrow. The swing and the number of seats that Labor needs to win is too big and whilst they'll put a good fight, it'll be just out of reach.

With the Coalition returned, the price of housing will become increasingly out of reach, because the Coalition is the party that is wedded to the insane policy of taxpayer-funded subsidies to the landlord class, despite the fact that it is a miserable failure in providing new housing stock.

Medicare will be privitised. Not completely of course, because Turnbull will at least make a pretense in that regard when put on the spot. But the services that manage Medicare will be chopped off and outsourced piecemeal, with a greater emphasis on competitive funding between states.

Average real wages will decline. Pensions will be further restricted. The unemployed and others on welfare will be the targets as the transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich continues. There will be big tax cuts for high income earners and big corporations. The Gini coefficient for both wealth and income will increase.

There will the gradual implementation of a second-rate NBN with the astoundingly bad FTTN policy, and Australian Internet speeds will continue to decline in world rankings, costing productivity and causing us to become even more of an international joke.

There will be be an attempt to deregulate university fees. The Gonski needs-based funding model will not be renewed. CSIRO will suffer more funding and staff cuts, the Bureau of Meterology will subject to politicised interventions.

Greenhouse gas emissions will increase, and the Great Barrier Reef will suffer further degradation, and there will be no effective oversight on the cruelty of animals subject to live exports.

The capacity to engage in collective bargaining will be curtailed, the only equal exchange mechanism between labour and capital. Workplace conditions will become harsher.

Asylum seekers will continue to languish, unprocessed, in offshore prisons, reporters will be prohibited in investigating such places, and medical staff will face possible criminal charges for reporting the effects of abuses.

There will be plebiscite on marriage equality, which will be won by the 'yes' vote, but then ignored by the government's parliamentarians. The National School Chaplains programme will be increased, the Safe Schools programme reduced, and extremist lobby groups such as the Australian Christian Lobby will continue to be a tax-deductible organisation for "promoting religion".

I hope I am wrong on all these things, but all will come to pass if the first sentence is true. I am, however, but one voice and the only other person who can make a difference... is you.
