Making

 


A look into process and production. Use the menu to browse project pages. I find something I like, it gets dropped into the feed.

Permatecture Pro

 


Permatecture professionals address complex cultural and technical aspects of climate change including:

  • Is Energy, Food And Water Independence Possible?
  • What Does Sustainability Look Like?
  • Can We Live With A Zero Carbon Footprint?
  • What Would It Take To Leave No Trace?
  • Implications of Open Source Media Tech and Free Press
  • Do We Have The Will For Necessary Changes?

Permatecture professionals seek to tie disparate bits and pieces into a cohesive model.

Linux Accounts-Daemon CPU Usage 100% Fix

top screenshot

If you run Linux, you may see 100% CPU usage from the accounts-daemon. It's because the /var/log/wtmp files grows and the service access the file regularly. Shirk the file. Here's how to do it.

  1. Edit /var/log/logrotate.d/wtmp to run daily
  2. Restart logrotate
  3. Optionally, edit /var/log/logrotate.conf to run daily instead of weekly

Now, you can forget about accounts-daemon and focus on important things. 

Open Source HA Resources [WIP]

It’s Not Frozen Music

 


Architecture is sometimes referred to as frozen music. <meh> It’s a great metaphor, but leaves me feeling, well, nothing. Everything in nature moves and changes. Frozen is dead. Frozen music might as well be a cave for all it has to do with a genuine experience of living space and place. Easy to say, very difficult to do.
