I'm a security engineer by trade. Here to find like-minded folks who are either in the process of, or have succeeded leaving the corporate paychecks behind to pursue projects like permaculture, building eco-homes (whatever that might mean to you), using their tech skills to protect privacy, do handicrafts, reduce waste, etc. #introductions
I don't know much, but I recently got in a chat with a peep who uses https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drip_irrigation for ehmm, well, irrigation.
Mostly cool for moderate-hot climates. TL;DR:
not spraying tons of water that evaporates, just pump it into the ground where it's needed.
@Mnemonic Thanks for the tip :)
@wombat_cubed Welcome. I think you should find a nice mixture of those types of folks here... at various stages of trying to escape 😅
@lordbowlich I was hoping as much.
@wombat_cubed welcome! I look forward to learning from you.
@wombat_cubed I'm a major incident manager, who had to go back into IT to pay the bills when our farm failed to pay its own way several years ago. I used to write ttrpgs and make maille but neither of those allowed for survival under capitalism either.
@WanderingBeekeeper I hear that. Running a farm is hard to make profitable. I'm probably going to have to keep working for the man till we're financially independent and don't need to make a profit with our hypothetical farm. So, retirement, I guess.
@wombat_cubed Hi, we have similar goals in life.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
