Getting close to 7zip GUI “Ultra” compression from a batch file

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/23

These are the command-line parameters I assembled to get close to “Ultra” compression from the 7-zip command-line:

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -t7z -m0=lzma2:d1024m -mx=9 -aoa -mfb=64 -md=32m -ms=on -sdel filename archive.7z

This will move filename to archive.7z using maximum compression.

Sometimes this is slightly better than “Ultra” compression from the 7-zip UI, sometimes slightly worse, but never far apart.

Can you save money by using a battery to buy your electricity cheaper?

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/22

This is a reminder to write a longer post on [WayBack] Using batteries to save moneyWith the new Tesla factory, battery prices are expected to drop to 100$/KWh.This leads up to an interesting question.Can you save money by using a battery to buy your electricity cheaper?… – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

By now it’s almost a year ago since I got my (City-Zen Smart City) battery. With about 50 households, we form a virtual energy provider that – because of size – can buy cheaper and sell higher than individual households.

Hopefully in a few months from now, I will have some figures that I can put into an article.

Bug me soon to start writing it (:
