Ebay update: Turns out I don't have any choice but to accept this person's return - selecting 'no returns' when listing only covers 'buyer changed their mind'. He's claiming description isn't accurate. But there's no forum to challenge this whatsoever. Pretty much as you'd expect. So, accepting the return, but if it's not in the same condition I sent it (and it isn't, because he's broken it to the point it doesn't turn on anymore) I'm only obliged to give a partial refund. Ho hum.
So I sold a #thinkpad T420 on ebay to some person for £120. The description and photos were explicit about every single small defect. But you know when you just get a 'feeling' about a buyer? Like they just don't get how life works? Yep. This morning an email "speakers don't work". Yes, I told you that in the description, I also asked you explicitly to read the full description when you messaged me asking for a discount. I've got 900 or so positive feedback, not a single negative, chum.
#ThinkPad X230 is by far the easiest laptop to upgrade/maintain that I know. Complete disassembly, motherboard replacement and rebuild in an hour.
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.
Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world
