  • Reading a few articles about this, it seems a big concern is area. They wanna squeeze them in every free space they have between and around roads. Conveyor belts can probably do a lot sharper curves etc. than railways. If they do special small rails, they’ll also need special trains for that.

    From the articles it’s also not clear if it’s from one point to another point or from multiple to multiple. They talk about deliveries, which would rather be multi to multi, but it’s not explicitly mentioned anywhere.


  • Bei uns im Dorf wurden Windräder vor Ewigkeiten mal blockiert, wegen Schattenwurf glaube ich. Aber inzwischen stehen seit 10 Jahren auf der anderen Seite 4km von mir Windräder im Nachbardorf/-gemeinde/-kreis. Stören tun sie mich nicht, aber ich nutze sie als Orientierungspunkte da sie groß sind und nachts blinken.

    Die meisten Windräder hier wurden im Randgebiet von Gemeinden gebaut … besonders da wo sie die Nachbargemeinde mehr sieht als sie selbst …

    Such mentality likely has to do with the environment. I read some that strategy games are more popular in Northern Europe than in Southern Europe, with the explanation that strategic planning is more essential for survival when the amount of sunlight is limited and there are months were you can’t really go outside because of snow and coldness.

    That would mean adverse conditions require it more to plan for the future. Coldness is indeed just an example for such an environment.

    scrolling through the list of emojis when good ol’ emoticons do the trick

    That’s why they usually have a search integrated or even quick access for the ones used lately. Lemmy’s emoji picker will give you 🥶 if you search for “cold”, “frozen”, “freezing” or “frost”, though not for “ice”.


  • Old vs. new hardware is difficult. New hardware can also do the same with lower energy consumption.

    It’s impossible to calculate, but the tipping point would be where the saved energy surpasses the energy needed for producing and transporting the hardware.

    I’m quite sure that my raspi4 is more powerful, smaller, less noisy and requires less energy than my oldest computer.

    The thing is just that they rarely only improve the efficiency.

    a man sees a dog

    a dog sees a man

    Order matters. In languages with more redundancy that would work:

    Ein Mann sieht einen Hund

    subject verb object

    Einen Hund sieht ein Mann

    object verb subject

    But even there it breaks if you switch the articles, though there are languages with a lot higher redundancy than German. The less analytic a language is the better that works. Analytic has less forms, but requires a more rigid structure.

    The still English can order any legible fact and be completely written in that is be

    English fact order written completely still is be that be in and any can The legible
