@movq@www.uninformativ.de Even just consumer grade. Wow! I also only rarely print anything and I always got third-party toners, never was disappointed with them. Last year I noticed that we have an ink and toner shop in town and bought there. That actually exist over two decades now, but looks extremely inconspicuous.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh wow, how cool is that?! :-) Ducks over here are quite shy, unfortunately. In Ludwigsburg on the other hand they are very habituated to humans. I was very surprised to see that when visiting a mate. There were a bunch of them laying on the stairs and I tried to keep my distance to not scare them off. Didn’t dare to get closer than maybe five meters or so and was super happy that they stayed. That has always been impossible over here. After we proceeded, some tourists came by and stood a meter next to them or so. That was crazy for me to see. :-)

Yeah, walking next to a highway is torture. I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Nice! The third photo looks like a Kneipp basin. What’s that round tunnel? I love those moss-covered rocks, they just look so beautiful.

You could get better value for money with a super cheap VPS without IPv4 connectivity but it wouldn’t be worth it if you didn’t need the extra resources as a VPS wouldn’t be practical with such low specs. It would also require significantly more effort on the part of the operator.

I would understand paying a small premium for using the lowest-cost tier, convenience, and especially if you operated a reverse proxy with IPv4 connectivity.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org The ducks aren’t too scared of humans. Great story from the first days of Covid in 2020: There were so few humans out and about that the wildlife began to reclaim its place. Those ducks in particular waddled around near the shops – and one of them even went into the super market. 😃 Never seen that before or since.

That path leads to a highway, yeah. Or rather under a highway. 😅 The photo with the graffiti shows a short tunnel, the highway is on top of it. It’s usually annoyingly loud, so I don’t go there often.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I’m surprised as well. It’s one of those big, clunky laser printers:

But it’s not “industrial grade”, it was a normal consumer printer and cost about 370€. I changed the black toner once and nothing else. Admittedly, the color toners are “worn out” and don’t give great results anymore, but I can’t be bothered as I hardly print anything in color these days. It might be worth buying replacements now, though, before they go out of production. 🤔 It’s already impossible to buy original ones, but there are still 3rd party toners. (Wtf? Was this a super popular model?! 😂)

@mckinley@twtxt.net Ahh, right, nethogs, iftop, stuff like that. I forgot about those. 🥴 If I’m quick enough to open them, they’re pretty useful as well. (I’m just too slow most of the time and the thing hogging the net is already gone. 😅)

@mckinley@twtxt.net Most little web apps, websites, static sites, whatever run perfectly fine with good performance on just 100mCores, a lot of what I run only has between 100m-500m of CPU allocated to it.
