Maybe even easier/more efficient would be piping all humanity’s sewage back deep underground to make the next age’s oil…

The combination of nature and technology caused the problem. Nature created all the oil and gas, and technology dragged that up to the surface and released it.
Only a combination of these two forces can put that oil back in the ground. Nature has a unique exponential ability to scale the carbon capture by the growth of plants [credit Claire]. Humans have the ability, through technology to take those new plants, and bury a carbon soup of the leaves back underground.
(If only there were an easy way to stimulate peat bogs…)
I believe this is what the Americans (led by Biden) have just realised: 1) there is a carbon dioxide problem - look at what it’s doing to their beloved California, for example and 2) there will never be a political solution to ‘going green’ - it’s just too expensive and unjust and too many people, particularly in the developing nations depend too heavily on oil etc. still.
Biden came to the summit (briefly) just to ascertain that something needed to be done, not necessarily to agree with the proposed solution(s). Just so long as some idiotic government doesn’t decide to do a “Total Recall” and start taxing air… after all, the planet will survive, even if we manage to kill (most of) us off with increasing carbon dioxide asphyxiation!

There is no specific Android app - the idea is to use UserLAnd :)

…though I suppose I ought to add:
Thanks very much to the UserLAnd devs for re-enabling 32-bit mode loading, which has at least allowed me (and us) to use the 32-bit app on Android.
In my early tests, the as-yet unreleased 64-bit app is almost exactly 4 times faster tho’

It’s on my todo list, coincidentally… (a 64-bit ARM Linux app) [so definitely agree]
Actually I’ve already made a suitable app, I believe, and am planning to install it on my test project very soon, and if all goes well hopefully live fairly soon after that - so watch this space…

So I see, and it is very much appreciated!
Now my algorithm’s just got to come through with a factor for us…

11) Message boards : News : New server (Message 534)
Posted 83 days ago by Profile bearnol
Hello All,
I do backups (currently) twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays generally.
Last night (Sunday 12th), I had a catastrophic server failure, and had to restore to a new machine from the latest backup (Thursday 9th). So if you notice any lost work, that’s why.
The old server (Lappy) was a 2008 MacBook running Mac OSX Leopard, and had been in continual service for about 13 years. He will be missed…
On the plus side, the new server _may_ be a bit faster.
Regards,
James (Wanless) [bearnol]
