I have an audio file named after someone I used to play video games with a decade ago.

The entire thing is just windows error sounds put together in a musical way.

Woke up, the batteries were already topped up. It's so different from 5 years ago when we started off living off-the-grid, where we'd always struggle for power.

We used to both use power hungry macbooks and switched to a pinebook and a thinkpad. We used to make iOS/Electron apps and now we write tiny cross-platforms apps in assembly.

Based on the following, when I switch my work PC and monitor off and go home for the evening, the devices are still consuming 19W.

That’s like leaving a fluorescent lightbulb or two on all night!

Readings:

Printer (idle) = 5.0W

IP Phone = 9.5W

PoE Switch = 2.5W

PC (off) = 1.5W
PC (sleep) = 2.2W
PC (logged in, idle) = 23W

PC under load:
Basemark Web 3.0 in Firefox = 56W
Cinebench R23 = 101W
Prime95, Small FTTs = 134W

Monitor (off) = 0.5W
Monitor (sleep) = 0.5W
Monitor (on) = 13.0W

I'm just starting to learn how to use emacs to give it a try and doing this tutorial that was suggested to me on mastodon ergoemacs.org/emacs/emacs_keys
When I reached navigation buttons, I wondered how many people are using the default keys for navigation in emacs, because vim feels way more natural and closer to hand using hjkl keys rather than arrow keys.

So , which one are you using on emacs if you're an emacs user:

I almost forgot, It's missing one thing for me though, the vibrant terminal theme that duckduckgo has, I hope they add that at some point in the near future before they release the search engine.

search.brave.com/ seems like well featured search engine 😄 , it has like summaries where it directly answers your questions in a box directly at the top of the page rather than looking for them in the wikipedia pages as I used to do with duckduckgo.
I am honestly looking forward for it to be released from beta to use it. As it still doesn't have many search results for any query but it suffice if you know what you're searching for but not a good option to look for things you're not sure about.

Israel says they're gonna keep killing until Palestinians are quiet

The Palestinians I know will never be quiet, and so neither will I

Someday soon, from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!

I don't always use 2FA but when I do there's just little enough time left on the current number that I probably can't type it in fast enough but enough left that I have to wait for an annoyingly long time for the next number…
