This is a really interesting article from @boulderreportinglab

It's all about bi-directional car charging ports and how they can benefit the city, the power company, and individuals.

I'd be interested to know what this kind of power storage does to the lifetime of the EV's battery.
How many years does it take off the car's lifetime? How much does it cost the car owner?
I'd love to see Xcel actually compensate homeowners for giving them access to power storage.

@xgranade imo this is more of a rule 0 matter. If I had a card like that in my deck, I would get the table's permission before starting and bring a replacement card in case someone objects.

A campaign committed to preserving an empty concrete lot in downtown is connected to many of the wealthy condo owners next door. https://boulderweekly.com/opinion/millionaires-for-vacant-concrete-pads/

@Artemis201@mstdn.social avatar

@bkeegan the picture in the link is a bit deceiving since the area is actually on Walnut, but I agree. The city shouldn't be subsidizing condo prices downtown at the expense of the public good.
Put something more useful than a concrete pad!

"it's all stored locally" is not a panacea for these alarming privacy-invading products!

what exactly is stored locally? what data is extracted from that local data and sent to the company's servers? is that local data being backed somewhere?

@molly0xfff also, give me my 25 GB back! My computer is already full of bloat ware. I don't want to dedicate MORE space to something that actively annoys me

@c_dan4th I honestly haven't really watched it. I stopped halfway through season 2 of Capaldi. I did watch 2 of the specials with the new doctor and liked him.

@c_dan4th Dr Who, Trek, SG1, LOTR, and about a dozen other nerd properties.
We're just starting Babylon 5 and I'm enjoying it even though it's discount DS9.

@Artemis201@mstdn.social avatar

@c_dan4th yeah I heard that Whitaker was good but the writing team was terrible and the multiple companions didn't work well.
I imagine at some point I'll check out the new season, but no clue when

Artemis201,
@Artemis201@mstdn.social avatar

@c_dan4th So far the writing, acting, and production value have been mediocre at best, but we're excited to get to season 2 to see if it gets better. We're expecting to love it since we know about the 2 superpowers war trope and looking forward to it

Artemis201,
@Artemis201@mstdn.social avatar

@c_dan4th yeah we just got to the episode Signs and Portents, where some mysterious man reporting to the powerful old alien race is asking everyone what they want. Both ambassadors give impassioned speeches about conquest, war, and power.

I'm sure it's not relevant at all.

Man I have so many scrapes and scratches from gardening barefoot and without gloves, but I'm happy to say that I've dug up all the grass in the garden, planted 4 different types of seeds, and thoroughly watered it and all my potted plants.
Job well done

Hope everyone has a great day, except whoever introduced me to . Because I'm sitting here looking at the upcoming Bloomburrow set knowing I'm gonna have to get some of these even though I have more than enough cards already.

Per the Guardian, the erupting volcano,
"Ibu is one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes, erupting more than 21,000 times last year. "

Doesn't that translate to it erupted all year long? How are we defining an eruption if we can count multiple eruptions a day?

Clarification for this will be most appreciated.

Artemis201,
@Artemis201@mstdn.social avatar

@Compassionatecrab no clue on the answer, but perhaps if there are multiple vents those count as multiple eruptions?

Painted something just for fun and the glory of my hoooouuuussse

Since I know I won't get time to get many done I'm keeping the paint job really simple and just calling out the main stuff. Tried really hard to keep the red in the colours to help them look more cohesive and board gamey when playing.

I've been watching TNG with a friend weekly and he HATES Gowron. I'm so excited for him to show to more

Feminists taught me that Mad Max Fury Road is not a feminist movie. I get that.

Fury Road was just an action movie where the violent protagonist was a woman with a visible disability, instead of an able bodied man. I get that.

But I still enjoy the fact that George Miller looked at all the dudes that got angry that a woman was the star of a Mad Max movie, and said "Cry about it!" and doubled down.

I am so watching this.

@mekkaokereke I thought Fury Road was pretty feminist. It was all about how a society treated women like things so they tried to run away to escape. But then realized that running away wasn't an escape and instead returned to claim their place as valued members and leaders in society instead.

Done some drawing tonight, I think I might actually be getting better. 3D modelling gas definitely helped me a lot just sort of figuring out shape. Not entirely but a wee bit. These are for a project I'm cooking up, of which they will be just a small part.
