One Month In, Tesla’s SA Battery Is Surpassing Expectations

“Following the early success of the SA model, Victoria has also secured an agreement to get its own Tesla battery built near the town of Stawell. Victoria’s government will be tracking the Hornsdale battery’s early performance with interest.”

Imagine an intelligent Australian Government where they put together an energy budget that would fund building one of these in each state, along with a great big solar farm.

Imagine the effect that would have on other Government’s around the world.

Imagine the impact that would have on the planet, the environment.

Social Media, and Me

“I have no concrete plan for how to approach the shitshow of social media in 2018 and beyond, but I know it starts with not giving a fuck about it.”

I think that’s a healthy way to deal with social media across the board.

Generally speaking, it’s a very brief and curated glimpse into someone’s life, it barely shows us what the person is really like and what they’re going through. Then when someone does post absolutely everything that is happening, in an honest way, we accuse them of over sharing.

It’s a lose lose situation.

About damn time!

We’ve seen glimpses of her background across a couple of the Marvel movies, but nothing that really gives us a better understanding of who the character really is.

After using Windows 10 for the last 12 months or so, I think I’m going to switch back to Mac OS for a while, specifically High Sierra.

I’ll also switch back to iOS for a while too, as opposed to Android, and see how that goes.

Why am I doing this? I’m bored and need a change, that’s about the only reason I can come up with…
