ideally you'd use your hot water heater as the last stop for any energy you use in your home.

why?

water has an amazing heat capacity, can be used for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and recreation, and costs a lot of energy to heat directly - the UK's national grid has to plan around teatime because of how popular electric kettles are, for fuck's sake! - so why NOT pump your waste heat into water?

gonna build a home with a small server room? run the heat output from that room directly to wherever you put a heat pump hot water heater.

fireplace? strap a couple thermoelectric generators to the sides to shove power into your battery bank, and if you get the watercooled kind? hey, free hot water too!

MAKE THAT ENERGY YOU SPEND WORK AS HARD AS IT CAN BEFORE IT LEAVES YOUR HOME.

@TrollDecker Running on the metal, or with a MCU in the cartridge like the Wolf 3D port? youtube.com/watch?v=3j6W-UF_7X

Should clarify, ThinkPad 220 above the PC110 in the article.

Side note: that 220 above... I think that's the only ThinkPad that ever had a trackball.

Side note #2 related to side note #1: the original was not a pointing stick. It was a mouse that could be flipped over, collapsed, and used as a trackball. (It actually reversed the ball directions appropriately when you did this, and had a second set of buttons on the bottom. Someone's video here: youtube.com/watch?v=3RTdAkUb1S)

Fun fact of the day: didn't invent ' with the -Gage.

Apparently did, with the ... if you connected it to a landline, per this (Japanese) article: pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/20

"You have too much time on your hands" is one of the worst possible sentences to utter

It demeans quest for happiness, arguably the only reason for sentience. The person who says it has given up experiencing joy for its own sake, to have pleasure in activities beyond productivity

A person who judges another's use of free time so callously is already dead inside

@mhu2141ai Not to say that the 50g is bad, though, but there's a couple of things where they just didn't quite get it right (key debouncing and real-time clock emulation, are both not quite right even on the latest firmware).

@mhu2141ai Nope, they're definitely from different eras, and the 48GX is a more solid-feeling device.
