Happy birthday, Wikipedia 🎉
Wikipedia turned 20 years old on January 15, 2021!
Wikipedia has contributed to free and widely available knowledge like probably no other platform. Showing the world the true power of collaboration on the open internet and what a great cooperating community is capable of. ❤️
My daily phone is showing its age. Turned off most Google services, yet still I might be lucky if the battery would even last beyond 24 hours. Battery replacement is impossible because I need to get it from China (IIRC it's not worth the hassle)…
Penang, Selangor, Malacca and the Federal Territories are back into lockdown for two weeks starting this Wednesday.
TIL older school Chinese food restaurants in Korea deliver food with actual plastic plates meant to be returned. They also hire their own staff to do the delivery and retrieval. After eating you set the plates outside your door in a bag and they come pick it up. This was already normal way before most other delivery food got popular, so it's ingrained to the point where modern delivery apps (like Baedal Minjok) accommodate it and let restaurants elect to use their own staff and do this

**paid service but it's free for subscribers of UK's BT broadband services
