for no reason, tonight i'm once again thinking about the "russian cyberfarm." i've seen this video so many times & i *still* think it's funny. i was born in the former soviet union, and this is about as accurate a representation as you're gonna get 😂

also, i think anyone with a #farm or #homestead or #offgrid will recognize a lot of the situations portrayed... (eng subs in cc)

Big help today with hanging the laundry. Because we moved the camper last week we moved the drying lines. Doris made a lower line so she can hang some laundry. She even made a short line for socks. I love how inventive she is and wants to help with doing tasks.

first test of the gosun sport solar oven i got on sale recently!

i had it cook some pumpkin from @saltphoenix's garden

it was a cloudy day & i wasn't sure how to arrange it toward the sun, but it definitely got hot, & this pumpkin got soft in ~45 mins.

so the first test went well! there is definitely more experimentation to go.

Summer is we moved the camper a bit so that she is under the trees for some extra shade. An extra pro is that she is closer to the outside kitchen, so it is more inviting to use the outside kitchen more than the one inside the camper.

I am always the one who drives the camper. And I am pretty proud of my accomplishment today, squeezed in between four trees, each on one side of the camper. Who says women can't drive or park a car?! ;)

I saw Nellie Lindqvist's video installation at #Charlottenborg last weekend and was able to track Lindqvist's name to this essay on #decolonization of the #internet in it's most physical sense.
The text analyzes some obvious examples where governments have weaponized the internet against #political revolts ( #Iran , #China , #Russia ), and how the actual infrastructure would need to be replaced, e.g. by #meshnetworks or similar #offgrid technologies.
It's a rather radical idea, yet to me in line with some of the problems that #fediverse and #decentralization also address.

Once a week we need to water all the new trees and plants we put in the forest last winter, that is about 75 of them. So I can use some help with that!

Living off-grid in the boondocks scares me.

Technological improvements like solar panels and satellite broadband have made it much more attractive these days, but they don't change the physical isolation.

I get that isolation can be really attractive and it can work very well if you're younger and able-bodied, but having lived on a farm, I know it can quickly become scary and dangerous if you're older or get injured.

It doesn't mean city living is the best. But technologically-assisted backwoods off-grid living seems like a precarious proposition.

Had a chat with the neighbour after he kindly helped us schlepp our old batteries off the pontoon.

Turns out he has some ultra-rare batteries on his boat: Flooded NiCd cells. 1.2V nominal, 20 year service life. His are from 2007 and still good, although they did cost a small fortune at the time.

They're still available and used in certain applications due to their unique properties and long service life.

Working on some different ideas and designs with a badass local group, trying to figure out how we can make portable AC units for the summer that are cheap to mass produce and can help people cool down if they don't have access to AC. Breaking down the approaches. 🔨🔩 #solarpunk

Design one is a radiator pump design. You add ice water into the bottom reservoir and use a pump to force the water into a radiator. This will get extremely cold and a fan is used to blow that cold air out. No humidity unlike a swamp cooler. Powered off a portable battery bank.

One major downside is that you need ice for it to work. Which then you have to have access to ice, money to buy ice, or have ice dropped off to you. There are portable ice makers but that could only work for larger places with electricity or a lot of solar infrastructures.
Adding on, you can put a smaller bucket inside the 5 gallon, and fill the space with spray foam to insulate the water to keep it from melting. But we can't always assume that people can either afford ice, or carry it far enough to fill up their coolers.

Another option is using a thermoelectric cooler unit, that takes electricity and makes one side cold and the other side hot. Attach it to a PVC vent to vent out the hot air through the tent. Then you don't need ice and this is more portable.
One downside is that peltier units really need to be cooled on their hot side. And there needs to be a strong delta in the temperature difference. For a small cooler is fine, but cooling air is way harder even with a bunch of them.

An answer to this might be a hybrid unit. Where instead of ice water, a peltier unit is used as a water cooler. The hot end is vented out the tent and the cool end can make cold water to use in the radiator. No ice is needed, but more power is needed to make the whole system work.
A big problem is that it's easier to make heat than it is to cool down. Cooling air is very energy intensive and requires a lot to get it cold enough to matter. It's easier to make stuff like heaterbloc heaters at a low cost compared to cooling, which involves a lot more.

There are ups and downs to all of these, and more than likely a hybrid approach will actually work in the harsh Texas heat, but will mean that less units can be made because of the expenses needed. It's a step in the right direction. Keep ya posted on how things go.

A little bit of background,we are making these for our local conditions in the hot and humid climate in Texas. There are other ways of cooling air like direct air over water/swamp coolers but they are best for drier climates. Just a bit of context into why we are going this route.

A good idea was brought up by @bjthoi
about using a zeer pot/ceramic evap cooler as the resevior that might offer a more appropriate/low tech approach to the idea. Might look into making mini Yakhchāl using the same idea.

A little throwback movie to our off the grid life the past 9 months. With our camper we stayed on a 5 hectare forest and vineyard in the south west of Portugal.

There was only forest when we arrived, so we started with making raised beds for growing our own vegetables. It is an amazing feeling what you can create in 9 months if you follow the natural flow! It was a lovely adventure, which ended last week.
