27 Jun 2021 : Scintillon version 0.3.2 released #
I've rebuilt Scintillon to support Sailfish OS 4 and above, including 64-bit ARM devices. There's more info on the Scintillon page; you can get the binary from the Jolla Store or OpenRepos, and the GPLv2-licensed source can be found on Github.
20 Jun 2021 : Waste news #
My waste recording got a bit off-kilter this last month, resulting in my bins being filled to the brim and with me recording only two sets of data over six weeks instead of three. It shouldn't affect the averages, and in practice that's what we can see from the data which is now up on my waste page. Over the last 17 days my waste is up slightly, mostly due to a bag of rolls all going mouldy before their time, leaving me with higher than average compost waste and an unplanned trip to the shops. Card is also slightly up although I think that's just part of the natural cycle, most of the other types of waste are around average. That leaves me with a lightly higher than average waste output overall for the last few weeks, but not horrendously so.
12 Jun 2021 : A BIOS reset caused my hard drive to disappear #
A cautionary tale about how a forgetful BIOS left my laptop unbootable, how I fixed it, and how I've become too dependent on my laptop.
2 Jun 2021 : Waste data dump #
Another waste data dump, rather overdue, but better late than never. Rather an uneventful waste dump, with returnables up slightly (cool drinks in the sun) compensated by a reduction in paper waste (reasons unclear). My daily average over the latest period was 130.0 g/day, which is actully pretty good. I think maybe I generate less rubbish when my bins are full, so emptying them a late reduces the average!
