Internet Metering and A Low Bandwidth Green Wizards
Madam Oh (aka Pat Ormsby) posted this:
"I'm not sure how long I'll be able to participate. Japan will make smart meters mandatory next year, and I am very badly affected by them. I have no problem living without utilities, but it will be much more difficult for me to work, let alone stay in touch. But I'll drop by when I can."
How then can we make visiting Green Wizards less energy intensive with either visiting the site in a shorter period of time, or cut down on the bandwidth it costs to view it?
We are dealing with two factors, electricity and internet connections. Cutting down electricity use would mean getting on, getting the information quickly in a form you could read offline. Internet connections, aka bandwidth restrictions, would probably mean some way to cut down on how many megabits it takes to view the site. I love having pictures with the comments but they do add to the amount of bandwidth you expend view Green Wizards. I'm sure their is a way to stop the pictures from loading, I just don't know how.
Several of the sites I read have a weekly newsletter, which covers the subjects discussed that week. Perhaps I could come up with such a newsletter and subscription option.
Thoughts or suggestions?
