yeah, i ordered a draeger 6300 along with the mira and will see what i keep and what i return during the 30 day amazon period
@stevenroose @kekcoin ah! where i am it's not unlikely, it's weekly hehe. but yeah, that's why i bought both P3 particle filters and also larger filters that can handle various gasses + P3 (e.g. the ones i linked to above, and also the czech ones with the mira cm6m)
i'm really hoping this will all calm down in the next 30 days and i can just return most of this stuff to amazon
@kekcoin @stevenroose i did find some cheap surgical masks for 30 cents each at the local pharmacy, the ones that are blue on one side and white on the other, but they are useful only for not infecting others, and are near worthless as protection. all the protective surgical masks were taken by the state 3 weeks ago
figured i would try them and return whatever seems unsuitable or ill-fitting
meant to write “dräger” instead of dragen
bought the last P3 filters for 16 euros and a few of these for 25 euros each https://www.amazon.fr/Dr%C3%A4ger-a2b2e2-K2hgp3-RD-filetage-arrondi-Raccordement/dp/B005ZTKEV6/
@kekcoin @kekcoin thanks — I know very little about this... bought it on amazon in Europe, and also a dragen mask, and a fair number of dragen filters which were well rated and pretty much the last filters and masks in stock

TIL there's a draft RFC for oblivious-PRF based blind signing scheme (so distinct from both old RSA type, and also Chaumian or Brands type using Schnorr ).
Some background on what this is and why it's interesting; first, see: "privacypass":
... an extension you can use to bypass captchas by using blinded tokens. I'm not sure of current real world status, especially w.r.t using Tor browser, which is where it's be *really* useful!
