  • Intro to Mastodon and the Fediverse

    Online event

    Mastodon is a fully open source social media platform, with no advertising, monetizing, or venture capital. Although each Mastodon server is independent of all other Mastodon servers, they can be federated for intercommunication with each other via a suite of standard protocols.
    It is a part of the Fediverse, a social network that is truly a network, by incorporating ideas and protocols that allow users and information to freely spread throughout a wide diaspora of servers and services. Explore how you might wish to join into the rich, new world that has more of a resemblance of the internet as it was envisioned to be.

  • ShropshireLUG presents - Going off Grid a practical guide

    The talk will cover the design and installation of renewable energy in
    my home in South Shropshire. It will start with the overall energy
    requirements for power and space heating, cover the design and
    implementation then discuss how well everything works.

    There were some issues during implementation and predicted performance
    which required some re-engineering. Also demand changed when an EV was
    purchased. The talk will cover these changes and issues which arose.

    In summary it is possible to run 100% solar power with a small generator
    boost at the end of December at a reasonable cost. However the
    implementer needs to really understand their needs and design
    accordingly. This talk will describe the key requirements and design
    features required for a successful project.

    Andy Fletcher:

    As a child I used to rip apart anything electrical to see how it worked
    and on occasion even put it back together afterwards. Became a licensed
    radio amateur at the age of 16 and worked designing PMR radios and
    infrastructure since the early 1980s. Involved public safety network
    design and operations for various organisations for around 20 years.

    First played with Linux in 1995 (Slackware 0.98 kernel). Managed the
    ongoing Linuxbierwanderung mailing list since 1998. Linux has been my
    daily driver since about 2000.

    I developed a strong interest in the decarbonisation of energy over the
    last decade and now live off grid (100% solar) in South Shropshire.

    I recently got back into embedded design after a gap of about 20 years
    and am really enjoying the rediscovering those skills.
