RESEARCH 》 Replacing in Lab Intel Core i7 5820K Desktop PC with Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC

As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs (such as Intel NUC, Intel Compute stick and so on). For few cases I can still choose to use my high-end desktop such as kernel builds via remote SSH terminal connection, etc. But choose to use Mini-PC as a regular desktop for all basic workloads. And sometimes for simple software development such as user-space components and GUI modules.

A laptop can be used instead of a Mini-PC, but the laptops in my lab are being used as a dedicated compact test systems already. And sometimes a Mini-PC is a better choice than a laptop, since when you purchase a laptop you need to buy entire package (such as the RAM, Harddrive, inbuilt monitor/screen etc). But a Mini-PC gives the choice, flexibility and it is modular unlike a laptop. Hence a Mini-PC is cost effective.

As a part of my research I am recording my lab's monthly power consumption. And I hope after this change I can see the difference in the power consumption. For more details visit the article: Recording Lab Monthly power-consumption readings for research

I measured with a kill-a-watt meter the power-consumption characteristics of this Mini-PC vs Core i7 desktop. When you compare there is huge difference between Mini-PC vs high end desktop especially a simple regular work-load. So for extreme work-loads a high-end desktop is perfect such as kernel builds, etc but for everyday casual computing a Mini-PC is just perfect.

My Lab Battery Purchase and Service logs for Research ↗
Wednesday' 05-Aug-2020
Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.

CDN Hosting ↗

It is quite interesting that there are few web hosting firms are offering direct CDN based hosting services. Since it is a direct CDN based hosting, it is cheap, extremely easy or transparent CDN service. It is transparent, since each time you publish your content in the hosting web-server (origin server), it is immediately is in sync automatically in the user-serving CDN caching machines. Since the hosting vendor and the CDN vendor are all the same, it is also easy to use their services. There is no incompatibility issues, interoperability issues, and better integrated analytics, are all the benefits of CDN Hosting services.

Multi-dimensional (Multi-universe) Internet Technology - A Proposal ↗
Wednesday' 05-Aug-2020
Currently what we have is a single homogeneous (sort of) WWW Internet. Which we can consider as a single-dimensional network. What I propose is that we can create complete independent multiple Internets with each Internet having its own IP-address space, Domain namespace and an authority to manage Domain names. And these networks/Internets can be entirely IPv4 only based or IPv6 only based.
