31 Dec 2020 : Happy New Year 2021, goodbye 2020 #
Everyone seems pretty miffed about 2020. I know it was a bad year for many, but I'm thankful that for me it wasn't so bad compared to what others have been experiencing. Still I'm hoping for a better year next year for everyone. Enjoy the fireworks on the site, a modification of the lovely shader originally created by Martijn Steinrucken aka BigWings.
21 Dec 2020 : Christmas time! #
Time to put up the Christmas decorations... In the real world we have a lovely Christmas tree and on this site it's started snowing. The whole year has been a bit crazy and it's still looking that way right now, so wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope you're doing okay.
12 Dec 2020 : Waste data dump #
Today I uploaded another waste data dump, this one only a week since the last, and quite possibly my last of 2020. That means I may already have a complete set of data for the year. I'll write more about this in a future blog post if it does turn out to be the case. So where are things at this week? It was a bit of a heavy week waste-wise, with an average of 207.1 g/day, significantly above my 2020 average of 173.8 g/day. It's still below my target though. My general waste was higher than usual, as was my card waste (packages arriving before Christmas), but everything else was on a par or lower than the fortnight before. Let's see how it pans out for the year in my next blog post.
5 Dec 2020 : Waste data dump #
My latest waste data dump has just gone up. It's not looking so good this fortnight, with my daily average of 222.9 g/day being well over my 2020 average of 173.1 g/day. The reason? Christmas. If you look at December last year you'll see what I mean, and the same upward trend has started for me this year too. Some festive temperance is in order if I'm not going to undo all the hard work keeping my numbers down this year. Specifically, the big problem is glass. Even though it's recyclable it's still environmentally unfriendly and incredibly heavy. Generally I find it can be avoided, but at Christmas time: less so. It's good to relax during the cold dark winter nights (and in Finland, the cold dark days as well), but it'd be good to be able to do that without generating quite so much waste.
