#Bitcoin must die


If Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear. This is roughly equivalent to the output of ten coal-fired power plants, emitting 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C.

The NBN was down all morning. I was in the middle of a support call to my ISP (it must be a fault at your end) when they got a lot more reports. The support person then said that apparently the NBN had been "rationalising the network" and that had caused the issue.

in the afternoon I got a "courtesy text" from the ISP stating that they'd completed a network upgrade in my area and some customers may have had their connections dropped as a result. 🤔

I met a traveler from an icy land
Who said—"Two dry and fleshless pits of plum
Lie in the dustbin... near them, on the floor,
Half stained with purple juice a napkin lies,
Whose tears and wrinkles tell
That its user well those plums enjoyed;
And on the napkin, these words appear:
I have eaten the plums
That were in the icebox;
Look on my works, ye Hungry, and despair!
Nothing beside remains."

My copy of How to Talk to Girls at Parties (the movie) arrived today! It had to be ordered from the UK since apparently no-one in Australia is a Neil Gaiman fan 🤔

Laurie Penny with some words on why you should *not* give fascists etc. a platform. The folks at the ABC should read and reflect on their stance (I hate typos! 😩 )


This is an amazing feat - one woman riding the entire Vuelta just before the men rode each stage. Let no-one say that women aren't capable of riding grand tours.


I was going to sit outside in the sun for lunch at Great Aunty Three but it appears that everyone else has had the same idea

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development

I did not expect to see this kind of introspection from Linus Torvalds lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/16/167

in 1841 horace mann accurately predicted that reading turns kids goth "In regard to all the other sources of pleasure... the alphabetic column presents an utter blank. There stands in silence and death, the stiff, perpendicular row of characters, lank, stark, immovable, without form or comeliness, and, as to signification, wholly void. They are skeleton-shaped, bloodless, ghostly apparitions, and hence it is no wonder that the children look and feel so death-like, when compelled to face them."
