@freakazoid @jalcine Yeah, it’s happening, but the thing is they are still trying to pass the cost to the consumer, while everyone else is putting state funds behind it. That’s a big bottle neck here.

Putting the responsibility for clean energy developement on private companies will always result in being inaccessible to most, which I would imagine is kind of the point.

Lobbyists know this as well, which is why I would disagree they have been reduced. They’ve just shifted.

@Are0h @jalcine Unfortunately the average price is still fairly high. There needs to be more storage capacity, which the negative prices will presumably encourage.

I'm watching at how people are saying the lack of Alex Jones on larger social media platforms is an "opportunity" for him to enter the fediverse (federated social networks) and I'm sitting on Mastodon just praying that y'all shut up and let him fester on his Wordpress install.

I'm amused by how a post from a mastodon.social user, to another mastodon.social user, federates to cathoderay.tube before it shows up in the mastodon.social web interface.

@cwebber this is totally unrealistic, though. Better to just teach kids to wrap computers in plastic bags and never touch them directly.

Fair warning everyone.

hackers.town will be prepping for a major move tomorrow. There will be extended downtime.

The costs of operating this instance on Azure have gotten too consistently high for me to be cool with, I will be moving to a self-hosted environment.

I know of one particular issue that I may face by doing so. If it gets to be too much of an issue, I'll look into fixing it.

A small price to pay for security.
