A symphony in Washington is livestreaming tonight due to Covid-19. A link to the concert will be posted later today on the link below so keep an eye out. :)
So I've enjoyed my time here, and I hate to see SBC die, but I think I'm going down with the ship. A brief search around for another instance has shown me that I don't care to move. I appreciate the work that was put in from Puffin, SqueakyPancake, and all of you. I've watched things on discourse unfold. You folks have made a place I was glad to call home on the web while it lasted. I think I'll try Scuttlebutt again. xoxo to all of you, you've been a rad community and I'll miss ya.
Subeam City, Meta, Staying in touch
I made a thread for staying in touch with Sunbeam peeps.
The forum will be up for a while longer even if the instance goes down.
Playing with reduced power consumption computing. Sunbeam.city loads great on a 1 gig of ram single board computer (rock64) (armbian). A nerd on a budget that doesn't mind linux, and doesn't mind limited resources could access the web for less than 20 bucks.
I've got more resource intensive systems, but it's always seemed a bit much to use them just to check my email and look at a few webcomics.
I could do all of that on a smart phone mind you, but phone computing comes with a whole host of privacy and advertising issues.
I was going to share my notes from the Shiitake log class, but here is something better.
my work wants me to be the social media person too now which would probably need me to come in more but even though it's a smol place im still wondering how bad it'd be to just start amping up posts to the Twitter and Instagram tenfold. mostly with humanitarian right stuff and anti police and government posts when i don't have new images.

Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
