It’s not about being offended or censorship. It’s entirely about people bringing their off topic frustrations and grievances here to try to bash it out.
In general, people know when they’re poking something just to poke it. Stop that. Not here. Respectfully disagreeing is fine, and discussion used to be a thing here, but if you have to resort to profanity and insults, you’re doing it wrong.
Hey does anybody have an idea how I could compress an image of my vaccine card down small enough to fit on my flexDF and still be legible? I apparently have 7676 bytes to work with, and I want it to be a vCard. I could do some image editing on it I guess.
Yeah I specifically want that. I want it to be seamless and not require internet or configuration on the user’s device. They just tap and bam vaccine card. I’m hoping it will seem like magic for people who don’t even know what an NFC is. I know some vaccine skeptics and I would very much like to freak them out.
I’ll try and make it 2 bit color and lower the resolution and such in illustrator and see how small I can make it.
Oh, I thought I was pretty explicit in my previous post. This is not to act as an actual functional vaccine passport. In america the land of freedumb no store would dare actually force me to present evidence of vaccination for fear of backlash, and additionally this card is a paltry excuse for proof anyway. I would prefer a national register that’s connected to my ID or something that actually provides evidence of vaccination so I don’t have to rely on our crappy for-profit medical system to track that, it would be on my person.
Regardless, the intention here is to make it as frictionless as possible so that when I encounter people who gripe about vaccine passports, I can have them tap my arm and “magically” show them my “vaccine passport” to freak them out. I’ve encountered a few people who are vaccine skeptical and I’m about tired of it. Worst case they never speak to me again, best case they get a bit of horizon expansion.
There’s definitely lots of aspects that could be improved, but in this instance I would specifically cite that I don’t have any of my vaccination information from when I was young, because I moved around a lot and you have to rely on your old doctors office to fax your records to the next one down the chain. Those are gone now for me, would have been convenient to have a national registry since vaccinations of all kinds are at least 50% a public safety concern instead of just personal safety.
