@mdrights Thanks for the suggestions, will check 'em out. I'd thought the overhead associated with Kubernetes might not be worth it for what is essentially a distributed Python use-case but will have a look.
@jumboshrimp Tried to watch for the first time a few weeks ago. Seems like an interesting premise but it feels a bit dated now.
@rmgr I think you can configure your shell profile to change color when using ssh. Might help in the future!
First day with a Pi Zero! Got a little screen and found someone's repo (https://github.com/sar02/crypto-watcher) to push images to it.
Looking forward to customizing that display. It's good practice with ssh for me
@yisraeldov I assume you mean that in the context of being a “software engineer”. I actually am an engineer by training, just a civil engineer!
Tesla states that their carbon savings so far are 3,6 megatons: https://www.tesla.com/carbonimpact?redirect=no
The current carbon footprint of bitcoin is 36,95 megatons/year: https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption/ (probably underestimated)
The price of bitcoin has risen 10% on the announcement of this news.
Bitcoin's economic model is set up so that a 10% increase in price will lead to roughly a ten percent increase in emissions.
So in one year, this price increase will wipe out ALL of Tesla's carbon savings.
@jamesvasile Cool, yeah I was just curious as I couldn't think of anything beyond either proof of a formal education or open project contributions that can be viewed.
@jamesvasile Interesting toots! Do you have any tips for emphasizing one's coding abilities to a potential employer when coming from a non-computer science background?
I figure open source projects and contributions are a good start, but was wondering if there is anything else worth doing
