How battery-powered homes are unplugging Australia

When Jane Whiltsher used to open her power bill it grated.
"I always felt that I was being ripped off," she says.

"It's just the way they operate. It keeps going up and up."

Two months after having a rooftop solar and battery system installed, it's a different story. Whiltsher's bill has more than halved. She enjoys the novelty of watching her "new toy" transforming the flow of energy around her house, leaving her largely independent of the wires outside.

Whiltsher's enthusiasm to invest hard-earned cash for a home power system that may take as long as 12 years to pay for itself is being echoed around the country as Australians race to install batteries.

Think i'll be trying this now... it should be mature enough.
 
We haven't talked much about kdbus recently, but that doesn't mean we weren't busy. The kernel module has matured and provides ABI stability now, we've spent many long evenings on improving the user-space compatibility layer to dbus1, and we've reached out to start converting the other bus-libraries.
My system has been running kdbus just fine for over half a year now. There are, occasionally, some hiccups we have to fix, but the overall experience is pretty neat.

Anyway, why am I writing this: If you run on Fedora Rawhide, you can now test kdbus by simply adding `kdbus=1` to your kernel command-line (or `kdbus=0` to disable it; which is still the default). If you run other distros, we have created a page that describes the required steps shortly [1].

If you have some spare time, we'd greatly appreciate if developers would give this a try. It works fine for us, but there are thousands of other dbus applications in the wild which might not work with the compat layer. Any feedback is highly appreciated! And, if you attend the upcoming systemd conference [2], I'd gladly return the favor with some beer! :)

For those worried about #stagefright  possibly affecting Sailfish OS phones (since we have Android support via Alien Dalvik). It looks like we're in the clear and a patch to Alien Dalvik is incoming, just in case.
excerpt from the linked article: Only Android phones below version 2.2 are not affected, he added. The weakness ...

Washington spied on its key ally, Japan, and passed intelligence on to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK, WikiLeaks has revealed. The NSA targeted 35 high-ranking Japanese officials and top companies, and also tracked trade negotiations.

This will probably not be of interest earlier than 2017 or something like that.. Buying too early will just make you lose money.

For those of you who frequently follow the 3D printing space, the name Olaf Diegel probably rings a bell. He has been the subject of several stories which we h

Story

My main intrest is Arch Linux and Linux over-all.
Introduction
Jag gillar att diskutera teknik och samhällsfrågor. Är kanske inte så jätteduktig på att skriva egna poster alltid men postar ofta vidare intressanta saker som dyker upp i mitt flöde. Är gift och har två barn som tar upp det mesta av min tid.

Försöker hålla mig insatt om det mesta men är i grunden en Linuxnörd om än inte fanatisk. Kan även Windows och Mac men föredrar som sagt Linux.

I like to discuss technology and society. Am perhaps not the best at writing my own posts myself but repost often about interesting things that pop up in my feed. Married with two children which takes most of my time.

Trying to keep me informed about everything but is,
if not fanatical, basically just another Linux geek. I can do Windows and Mac too but as said prefer Linux.
