For some reason @futzle ‘s posts don’t show up on my timeline even though we follow each other. I’m probably too much of a mastodon noob

I hope they are all carrying a copy of Malcolm Turnbull’s “A Bigger Picture”

Exciting NBN update: the NBN techs said they fixed a fault at the node, and now everything looks good on the street but nobody is still able to connect. This is now “something we’ve never seen before”

I'm generating at a 3.381kWh/kW efficiency which is not too bad. I only have 15% of my array facing north

I'm guessing he is right because it went crappy again while the garbage truck was rumbling down the street...

Do people in here tend to simply post through it all as well? If not, I should give it more of my attention

Six years ago today, I was almost eaten by my iMac when it developed a strong taste for my beard.
