This is my .

I’ve been online for a very long time and have had my own homepage since the early ‘00s.

I’ve dabbled in web1, 2 and 3; and think web3 is a very horrible idea as it is framed now. Crypto is worse.

I re-launched my homepage in the last year and post short updates regularly.

I’ve been a self-employed electrical engineer for 10y and focus on electrical safety, power system modelling and recently on solar development.

In different remote communities in Labrador, the challenge isn't that there is no local non-carbon emitting resources, its that there isn't a load to support them.

There are a few communities that have potential small hydro sites, but the load is too small to support them.

In these cases adding to the energy mix, especially since most trips are 10km or less OR 300km. Its those longer trips that need more charging options.

I spent a lot of time working with this week and it has given me a few new ideas to test out with .

The most interesting one to me is using a dual axis array and storage to have a completely off the grid charging system. Something that can be installed in remote areas where there is no current electrical infrastructure, like the Labrador Highway.

I'm starting to think that bluetooth mouse are wrong. Sometimes its the best thing ever, then you wait a few years and they don't want to pair, or the connection keeps dropping.

I'm looking for a recommendation for a good general purpose dongle mouse. Extra points for a USB-C dongle.

This has been a big week for my audio setup, I got new open back headphones and have set up my Zoom H5 as an audio interface.

Now I have my ATR-2100x connected through the Zoom with XLR vs the USBC, and it all works!

I started playing with Filezilla pro, and I see a lot of batchfiles and scripting in my future.

For now its made publishing my personal site as easy as, publish.bat.

best ds9 ep:

I'm one of those edge cases that thinks encodings & formats are political, bc the act of bounding what and how things should exist just... is... but beyond a few format art pieces I don't know any good way to teach them. do I know anyone that does?
