  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    the problem with that is toddlers For the record, I am not a toddler and neither is my girlfriend. I tried to phrase my comment so it was obvious that I knew why the rules were in place, and that...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Also, one reason Sydney and Melbourne are really pushing rainwater tanks to feed toilets and washing machines is that it's a change that doesn't affect behaviour/lifestyle. It's turned out to be much easier to get people to spend money than...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I think it's worth giving numbers just so people who are thinking "but everyone needs to halve their usage" gets a chance to think about what that means in practice. The *average* in Sydney is ~200l/day/person, and from my direct...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    We've talked about grey water etc here before. For me personally living with by girlfriend a whole lot of stuff is possible, even easy, that is just bluntly not legally permitted. For obvious reasons shower, laundry and kitchen wastewater is...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    We had the spiffy advanced model, much bigger and entirely capable of dealing with two babies worth of cloth nappies every day. But equally capable of running a 300 litre hot water tank cold if you insisted on only using...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    You're right, but it comes down to the drums I can easily get. Basically 220l or 110l (hehe, that's one hundred and ten litres), and the 110l is barely big enough for my winter king size doona when it's dry....

    I hope your duvet washer is going to be powered by pedalling half an old bicycle :) I hope so too! I just have to play with the mechanics, and probably find a large bit of concrete to bolt it...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    If the roller release works they're relatively painless. But I've seen one where it didn't release because it was rusted inside. Apparently the owners never found it necessary to pop the release and it just gummed solid over time. That...

    Also: my fridges, oven/stovetop and washing machine each fit in a 600x600mm footprint. One fridge has ~40mm spare down the side, the other is ~595mm wide... so needs 50mm air gap each side if it is to work properly, and...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Ditto. I'm more used to wishing they had two outlets, one for the wash cycle and one for the rinse cycle/lawn. But these days with 30 litres per complete cycle and better detergents (less salt added!) it's pretty safe just...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I quite like the old wringer washing machines, basically a tub with an electrically powered stirrer in it, and a couple of powered rollers over the top that you can feed clothes through the rid them of water. Also good...

    Since then CPUs have gained pipelines and caches, though. Which is like having a team of women which would let you gain a baby every month for decades! It's just that it takes 9 months to get the pipeline running......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I was thinking more of that agreement our man Malcolm made with the orange one to swap refugees. Except this time we'd be sending our best and brightest* on a cult(ural) exchange to see they do it in Florida or...

    And we have covidiots in NSW arguing that we should follow the lead of England (which they call the UK) and the US, just open up business, remove the lockdowns and let people choose whether to get vaccinated or not....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    We are tribal beings who, by nature, treat those in our out-group as less than human. Just to clarify, how many of these less-than-human things have you raped or killed? And if the answer is zero, what on earth are...

  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    This is your usual reminder that "ebooks may be available after the release date, should one be decided" for those of us not living in the plague-ridden hellholes that most of you are stuck in. Google tells me that the...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    net worth I think it's fairly widely understood that he has significantly negative net worth, although he may also have some money. Viz, money is not the only value. Or even a very important one. Cultists notwithstanding....
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Very much so. I'm right now not doing a lot of activism because I'm in lockdown, and I suspect less is to come when my granny flat construction project gets underways because I will be basically eating, sleeping, cycling, working,...

    Vestas 6.2MW produces 24 GWh/y at average windspeed of just 8m/s. For those who struggle to multiply 8765 hours a year* by 6.2MW in their heads, the answer is 56GWh/year, so that turbine is running at about 43% of nameplate...

    https://www.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/pk8c41/we_leaked_the_upcoming_ipcc_report/hc2886f/?context=3 Someone on reddit has a wee rant about climate change. Towards the end talking about consequences: The IPCC tells us how to get there: a 91% reduction in indirect emissions, and an 80% reduction in point-of-use emissions, period. That...

    if you are not constrained to keep to the roads, you can use the cut-throughs and alleyways that connect the leaves to whatever's on the other side of the houses around them, and get where you're going in a...

    people get a bit lost in the anti-establishment internet Our mutual friend Lyric is married to one of those, and is refusing vaccination because he doesn't want untested chinese big pharma poisons in his body. It's a tricky discussion to...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Yes, but in countries with a bit of geography and a low population density (or who are aiming for that... like the UK seems to be) it's often simple enough to find the low reservoir. There are a couple of...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    resilience versus efficiency tradeoff That too, but I was thinking more of the "after three times the expected duration and ten times the projected expenditure we have... decided to abandon the effort" outcome that is very likely these days....
