i guess it makes sense to have a gemini/gopher server with specific "hours of operation"?
unlearning the "always online" paradigm
@chirrolafupa and we have so many "always-on" services already, like notifications for calls, texts, push notification services. we can coordinate and schedule other things using those. i also think most operations don't *actually* have low latency requirements, and coordination and scheduling can be used instead. and i also like availability windows. they tell me when my free time is. i'd prefer to make latency less critical, in exchange for making scheduling and coordination more critical.
I would suggest spreading those hours over multiple timezones though :)
@chirrolafupa Remembering my childhood BBS... we were allowed to log on for 1 hour per day. I planned my 1 hour carefully before I actually clicked "Connect".
@chirrolafupa LowTechMagazine mentioned this point regarding their solar powered server.
