Electrical costs are now high enough that I took a hard look at my server rack and asked the tough question.

How much compute power do I actually use?

The answer? Embarrassingly little. After consolidating all my servers and drives down from multiple Core i7 systems to a single Cortex A53 handling all the web sites and a repurposed NUC to handle storage, I was able to reduce my power draw from 317 watts to... 45 watts!

That should help the electric bill.

I've been moving the transmission belt daily so they walk a bit farther for the same amount of treats. I could probably train them to just walk but my feeling is if I add the resistance of a dynamo they won't be very motivated to push, and anyway, this is more fun for everyone😁

We are so lucky to have maintainers like Ihor Radchenko in the #Emacs #Orgmode community.

It feels good contributing again!

I've always thought about it but been hesitant to run an email server. Sounds like I can stop thinking about it.

The most interesting thing about this TikTok breach is not the user data being leaked, that's all fairly normal stuff it's that WeChat and TikTok data were stored in the same database while supposedly being independent companies

Just had several people this week mix up my accounts, so to be clear, here's how they work:

@FediFollows - Suggests interesting accounts to follow on here and maintains a directory at mastodon.online/@FediFollows/1

@feditips - Posts hints about using the Fediverse once a day

@FediVideos - Boosts interesting Fediverse videos and livestreams, usually from PeerTube and OwnCast servers

@homegrown - Advice for non-technical people and orgs on setting up their own online services, based around a website at growyourown.services

(I also have a personal account at @FediThing but that's just random fun stuff, nothing serious or useful!)

You know lots of people who have caught COVID so you think it is inevitable, I've never actually met anyone who has caught COVID so obviously I think it isn't. We'll all have a definitive answer eventually, the difference is my friends won't be dying while we wait for the answer.
