@substack yeah, I followed spider-farm when you were on scuttlebutt. I'm 100% offgrid too, and my house uses around 1/10th the US average energy.

But there's alternative and then there's mass market, like it or not, so I am excited when I see indications the mass market is making any kind of improvement.

@substack a fridge plugged into an IQ8 with a single 300w solar panel should be able to keep food cold on sunny days.

Fill the freezer with water for thermal mass and it will probably keep sufficiently cool overight with no power.

Add 2 more solar panels and IQ8's and it will run on cloudy days too.

That's a much simplified version of my offgrid fridge0.branchable.com needing none of its special components of software.

@substack I think we'll see increasingly products quietly designed for this.

A lot of it will be in home battery storage, which is already taking off and is needed to deal with the duck curve problem too.

There are a couple of grid tie inverters that can kinda, sorta power one outlet when the grid is down and the sun it shining.

The Enphase IQ8 microinverter promises to take that a lot further.

I'm not on that private list and don't want to be (not affiliated with gnu), but I've been reading people slagging gnu maintainers on the fsf members forum this morning, and ..

@anarcat I considered using calibre once, but I looked at its code for 5 minutes and found one of the security holes you listed ....

yeah, and there are 16k monitors already

xterm's resize used to also assume 999x999 max, now it uses 9999x9999 max, so they'll have to keep bumping it

found some code that assumes a terminal will be no bigger than 999x999

hmm, I wonder..

Project 62 Valencia lamp wasting 2.5 watts.

at least the circuit board that connects live AC to a metal plate on an ungrounded frame does have decent isolation :P

luckily I rewire all lamps in my house as soon as I buy them, to convert to 24v dc

this lamp will end up using less power while ON than it did while off in the factory configuration

that's a touch plate switch, so the lamp contains a hidden black box with a microcontroller that sits in a tight loop waiting to detect your finger

bought a floor lamp, which has a touch plate

I measured the lamp wasting 2.2 watts when OFF

That's half the power my laptop uses.

@cwebber @dthompson
also, the hand-washing numbers I found seem to assume one is running the faucet continually while washing

(I typically use 5 gallons to hand wash and rinse a full sink of dishes. Double sinks have two sinks precisely to allow this to be done efficiently.)

@Greg anyway, interesting idea. You could perhaps use if they were able to afford college or something like that.

@attilakinali well, yes, but this fuse didn't have continuity anymore, but seemed to be generating heat

(unless it was another element near it, I lack an IR camera)
