Most people: "would you like to pet my cat / puppy / lizard?"

Sunbeam City comrades: "would you like to water my plants?"

I'm Puffinux, my interests are , , spaces, , , , , , (cycling), , , and novels, and . I'm a very practical, hands-on sort of person who's happiest halfway through a project, soldering late into the night with the radio on.

More recently I've been learning about cooperatives, communal living, intentional communities, tech / energy and alternative, self-sufficient lifestyles.

I seek to learn as much as I can so as to contribute back to communities and help create a future that we can be proud to leave for the next generation and beyond, rather than the slow-motion train crash we're currently victims of.

I'm very open to both teaching and being educated.

I'm also the current admin of wiki.sunbeam.city , so hit me up if you have questions related to our wiki, or want a wiki account with which to contribute.

It really says something about my social life that the only reason I've gotten back in touch with one of my best friends at college is because I accidentally copied a torrent magnet link into our chat room and he thought it was spam.

El Árbol del Tule is a tree growing in Oaxaca state, Mexico, and it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. Its a 35 metre tall Montezuma cypress, and its main trunk has a circumference of over 42 metres, even larger than any known giant sequoia.

It also goes by the Nahuatl name of Ahuehuete, meaning "Old man of the water". According to the local Zapotec people, it was planted 1400 years ago by a priest of Ehecatl, the Aztec wind god, named Pecocha.

To set up pure monochromacy on your phone you have to enable developer tools. It isn't listed in the regular accessibility options. Below you can see the settings to enable but not what it looks like because screenshots take photos without the settings. You see them in monochrome but when they are shares they are in color!

@eben @puffinus_puffinus @gozer I'm not making the hypothesis that advancing tech will make things worse, I have been focusing this entire time on our limited resources. The #1 thing we can/could control is our rampage through the resources on this planet. Rail transport is the most efficient means of moving weight on this planet at the pounds moved to fossil fuel consumed ratio, so that needs to become the primary transport focus for intra-continental long-distance.

Private airplanes, which contribute the largest carbon load to the atmosphere and allow a very small group of people to over-consume fossil fuel, should be banned.

What are now premium and exclusive water-saving and energy-saving tech needs to become mainstream now. We need to ban forced obsolescence and refocus manufacturing to make products with the longest functioning lifespan and the most sustainability. There's plenty of development and tech required in an economic and production shift of that magnitude.
