I've just finished a set of screencasts on the Desktop Publishing tool Scribus for my students.

The program has come quite a long way since I last used it, it is really great to have a strong canvas alternative.

If anything, the lockdown has been a great opportunity to showcase free and libre open source software alternatives to my students and collegues.

Can post links when transcoding is finished, if there is any interest.

A few weeks ago we published a follow-up article about the project: "How sustainable is a solar powered website?"

The article is a very extensive research into the embedded energy costs of this setup and how to lower that. Additionally we have some statistics on visitors (865k unique), energy use (18.1 KWh) and uptime (98.2%) after more than a year of operation and what conclusions to draw from that.

There is quite some overcapacity in the system, so to increase our efficiency one approach would be to host multiple servers on that off-grid solar system. But that is scaling up. Instead the solution we opted for is seeing how we can do the same with smaller batteries, smaller solar panel and hosting more sites on the same machine. To that end we've started migrating , and language sites to the solar server as well.

Anyway here is the whole thing with all the details!

Andrea Liu on facebook: "The Parachuter is an artist who swoops into a conflict zone/geographic locale that is in great social/political distress (much like a vulture), instrumentalizes this distress in order to make an art project, wins accolades for all the “social good” they propagated, then later has nothing to do with the community in distress. They PARACHUTE IN and PARACHUTE OUT (i.e. 'parachuters' being ubiquitous in the American neoliberal/Creative Time/art-activist scene, Laura Poitras a quintessential example)."
