Hello world. I'll be using this space as my primary 'social' space, going forward.
Please bear with me, as I iron out wrinkles on my deployment.
Watch this space. :-)

സുർക്കിമിശ്രിതം കൊണ്ടു 1903ൽ നിർമ്മിച്ചിരിക്കുന്നു. കൊല്ലം - ചെങ്കോട്ട റയില്പാത ഇതിനു മുകളിലൂടെ പോകുന്നു. മീറ്റർഗേജ്, ബ്രോഡ് ഗേജാക്കിയപ്പോൾ ബലപ്പെടുത്തലിന്റെ ഭാഗമായി രൂപം ചെറുതായി മാറ്റപ്പെട്ടു.

About ten years ago, the IT building for a local highschool burned to the ground.
My company donated a spare Juniper EX3200 switch to help get them back online. They had erected a small structure without any insulation, and left the switch inside unpowered for a day while the fiber splicers got them hooked back up.
They started the switch, and it immediately shutdown. They looked a gift horse in the mouth and bitched to us that our donation was garbage.
I was dispatched to assist. I connected to the serial console and powered the device up. It immediately indicated that the CPU temperature was 252 C, and shut itself down.
It was January, the outside temperature was -3 C. The Juniper device was storing temperature as an 8-bit unsigned integer value. It got so cold, it thought it was on fire.
Can't say I ever expected to use a heat gun to get a switch to start before that day. Got it warm enough to power on, and then it kept itself plenty warm to continue operating.
Data types matter, yo.

Follow on from solar panel mounting first posted here:
So in the end, I got the local mechanic to drill some holes in locally sourced material, and to bend some locally available ubolts to my spec.
Will post further updates as I make progress with mounting the panels on a 1"x1" square cross section pipe for structural support. The 1" ubolts will be used to secure the panels to the pipe, and then to mount the whole thing on an existing roof where the longer (3") u-bolts will be used to secure them.
Many folks have been taught about “The Tragedy of The Commons” in school. But what most folks don’t know is that it was complete bunk written by a white nationalist and eugenicist to justify colonization and genocide.
Commons can be successful. Many long-standing and successful commons exist. Many were studied by Nobel Prize-winning Political Scientist Elinor Ostrom, who codified 8 principles for how commons can be governed sustainably and equitably in a community.
I’d really like for folks to stop using the term “tragedy of the commons” that assumes inevitable failure, and start calling them what they are. Commons with improper governance or “Failed commons”.

It exists! European Sleeper inaugural departure. 3x a week, Berlin - Amsterdam - Brussels night train. It’s pretty retro, but it’s a heroic effort to even get this to run
