Constructing houses from tree is considered a good way to store carbon for long term. I've been thinking about in what extent the same arguments hold for books.

How much carbon does one book hold up, and how big percentage of the original tree ends up in paper? How long on average are books stored before they're discarded (and either burned or left to rotten in landfill)?

So in sum: are paper books more like storage than consumption?

This is the web API I use for retrieving online content while at sea. It's pretty cool.

Says here that one important reason tea quality (as opposed to yield) doesn鈥檛 improve much is the way tea research is organized and rewarded:

Can't make up my mind... this maybe a logo for (a "Planet")... Perhaps I should just stickt to white Jupiter instead of trying to add pink.

How does Stallman maintain ? this man is like a one man news outlet and just skimming it makes me cringe at the amount of evil in this world. I can鈥檛 read news these days without long breaks, and by carefully picking my sources.

Copyright take downs I'd say is the biggest thing that dooms culture to extinction.

It should be madatory that if a business goes out of business their copyrighted material should be immediately released and become public domain.

Also, Orkut, Google Wave, Google+ and other networks that have come and gone 鈥 are they the Necroverse?

The fediverse is Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Osada and all their friends, federating. But what do we call all the silos, the ad-based family of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and friends? How about Adverse? It's true: a universe founded on ad serving. And a reminder that the offer plenty of adversity.

If I'm trying to host my own email, it would seem that I need to make sure the reverse DNS is set up correctly. But where? The hosting provider (where I rent the machine) say's the domain is managed by Gandi, which is correct. But they don't offer a web UI to do this. Is this something I set up on my own machine?

Saw a video or two with Bercow shouting ORDER! OOOORDEEEEER! And I think I need to add this to my D&D the next time the party talks to an agent of the Law.

And they are on Mastodon: @delta

You can go to the library and check out a book from a century ago. But just try to follow a link to a PDF with 2003 in the URL and you're out of fucken luck.

So many toots I start writing and then I abandon them because I remember this or that incident, people complaining about mansplaining, or unwanted advice, or they just wanted to vent and I didn't see the signs鈥 this is how old people must feel. None of the enthusiasm left but memories of all the failures still burning with shame. Thus begins the retreat into the inner self.
