There's a simple solution: find other assessment methods than high-stakes tests. I have not been giving closed-book, high-stakes tests since the pandemic started, and probably never will again. Instead, I've been using an assortment of many low-stakes methods that also give frequent feedback and encourage learning.
A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.
Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).
Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.
No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.
(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)
Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

I think this is the first pure work trip since Feb 2020, not mixed with some personal component. And it’s an up-and-back, which is nice (no hotel, etc).
I’ve managed to hold on my #flyless goals, but needed to do this.
In the "making lemonade from lemons" depth: I couldn't ever get a decent RTX 3000 card at a decent price, due to supply ... and now it looks like the RTX 4000's are set to arrive soon. And they look WAY faster.
So, hopefully I can get one, and just skip the 3000!
