did a first test running Reform 2 from batteries with display on, medium brightness, all cores on, GPU in use by the compositor, low load, mPCIe WiFi active, NVMe SSD active (logging), keyboard backlight enabled, no powersave features in use: 292 minutes until safety switchoff.

so almost 5 hours. i believe this can be optimized with powersave strategies but i think it's quite ok already.

currently turns off if a cell reaches 2.6V. it could go a bit lower, but i don't think for much gain.

There is no better visual expression of the human stupidity under corona panic than a tourist renting motorbike, wearing face mask, elbow-bumping instead of shaking hands, while holding the motorbike key in his mouth...

This level of stupidity will one day make me become a serial killer.

How ironic, the emergency measures just forced me to leave my safe home and travel by plane to a big city. And might end up sending me to Europe where I will be automatically sent to quarantine, among all the other sick people. Bureaucracy has always caused me much more trouble than any virus

I'd really like to give Firefox a chance, I really would. But if version 72.0.2 doesn't let me copy the response body from the dev inspector, scrolling in that inspector window doesn't work and when I cancel a download it's still downloaded, I really can't, sorry.

This will be big. Solid state fast-charging non-flammable lithium battery from the same Nobel prize winner who invented lithium-ion batteries.

Damn. I just sent my first tip from Brave Rewards, and I have the same feeling like after my first bitcoin donation in F-Droid. It's so EASY! This is how I want to pay for everything. Just one click, done, no emails, no subscribe buttons, no ads, no saving of my credit card number, no risk of data leaks...
I don't do impulsive shopping, but apparently I started impulsively donating.

How about a little cancer with that healing bracelet? And a bunch of amazing physics and chemistry explanations: invidio.us/watch?v=C7TwBUxxIC0

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

@PINE64 Hi guys, are there any estimates whether more Braveheart PinePhones will be available any time soon? Or when is the next edition expected?

Facebook has just released a tool that lets you turn off some third-party tracking. But changing the new setting requires 9 different clicks, in a corner of the site that most users will never see.

Hereโ€™s how to go turn it off now. (1/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/how-

This guy should really be much more popular than he currently is: samsmith.work/
He's making trash-eating recycling factory: hackaday.io/project/139958-met, 3D printer that prints directly from shredded plastic

Looking for suggestions: I have at my disposal 3 old laptops and 2 rasberry pis and I want to run a service that might be useful even for others, not just me. They are pretty low spec, celeron cpu, 2gb ram, sometimes go offline, ... bitcoin node is probably out of reach, not reliable enough for sia/storj node, not powerful enough for [email protected] I'm currently running Archive Warrior, that works fine. Maybe IPFS? What else could be possible?
