happy bi visibility day

don't forget to gift your favorite bi person a calculator that only works in binary.

I gifted myself one too

I'm back online after much trouble

ISP fucked up getting a technician to my address, so I booked "unlimited data for 1 day" on my phone and use the hotspot

surprisingly okay to browse and youtube with

also setting it up so my entire network uses the hotspot connected to my PC was fun

In case you're wondering why I don't use K8s;

I have a Ansible template for HAProxy and scripts for Docker Swarm interaction that reduces me setting up a new service to making the Docker Compose file and then adding 3 lines to the ansible variables to define routing

it doesn't work

so I'm gonna shop around for some boost converters with ultra low voltage dropout. something like 0.5V or so.

supercapacitors are shortcircuit resistant in the same way nuclear power plants are;

the wire evaporates

got the solar panels for my project

voltage at expected light level is around 1V per panel (rated to 4V)

once I get the supercaps I will experiment if the voltage floats up if the cap charges or if I need to find a boost circuit (I legit don't know and if any of y'all spoil me I will ban your entire instance, I *NEED* to experiment to find out)

I ordered a solar panel and a supercap.

Time to experiment with running a small weather sensor on the ambient light that I get (not a lot, basically in shade).

I don#t need much, I ran it and it averages out to 1.177mA over a day, so I the solar panel needs to produce 7 mA (all 2.8 Volts) for 4 hours to handle the daily usage. Basically about 20mW of power. The panels I ordered are rated at 250mW each, two for 500mW.

The would remove the need for a lithium battery, which is beginning to be terrible due to low temperatures.

I've been trying and failing to prune my backups for like 2 weeks now. bleh

is it a good sign that dnd-related memes give me ideas on how to do a TPK?
