Oh shit I have only five minutes of screen time left, say something fun real quick!
Mastodon followers, could anyone of you actually see the photo in this post in your timeline (without clicking through to the original post)? It shows up as blank in my test Mastodon account but don’t know if it’s an issue with Mastodon or micro.blog.
Anyone know what was going on on Porthaninkatu/Fleminginkatu around 19:00? Street was blocked by police, saw a fire truck parked with lights on.

As I don’t have Twitter anymore I need alternate sources of entertainment. Today I’ve followed Finland’s ramp-up test of a new nuclear reactor in real time as it has added > 1 GW to the grid.
Tempted to login to Twitter just to check if my account has been banned for violating the “Promotion of social media platforms” rule yet.
I found this, which shows that even with LEDs, manufacturing is a very small part of the overall energy consumption during its lifetime. If the other environmental impact of the manufacturing outweighs the energy savings is perhaps harder to tell. (source)
In our bathroom we have a grid of 9 36 W halogen bulbs. I just replaced two of them with 6 W LEDs. Would it make sense to replace the rest of them for the energy savings (7*30 W, lights are on maybe 2-3 hours per day on average, so ~525 Wh per day), or is it better to use the existing ones until they die (taking into account the manufacturing of the replacements)?
Happy to see that some of my favorite bots are appearing here too!

Made a tiny modification to the Mastodon -> micro.blog follower import script I made in 2018 so that it works with the .csv file generated by Fedifinder, and am now following a lot more people, nice!
