Begging their help, and the trees and children granting his wish. But it's like that saying, when the gods seek to punish they answer prayers.

Australia recently banned Chinese Manufacturer Huawei from our 5g networks because it couldn't be trusted to not contain a state-sponsored back door. Then proceeded to pass laws forcing Australian Tech to create state sponsored back doors. Genius. RIP Tech Exports #auspol pic.twitter.com/UiGqqN3Jb4
Ekster now contains a new feature. The backend now supports two types of Redis based timeline backends. The default is still the timeline based on sorted sets. The new type is based on streams. The notification channel will now use this new stream type. Not many entries are posted to this channel, but I will use it for more things in the future.
