Let’s face it electricity is expensive, in the UK alone the cost per kWh has doubled over the last year, and reflecting on what we’re running in our homes 24/7 like home servers feels like problem worthy of attention.
Where we begin As it stood in my home, Frigate (CCTV NVR), Home Assiatant (Home Automation), Plex (Media Server) & NAS were all running from a HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8. At the time I aquired this server it provided a rock solid base to run everything from, and be dammed the power consumption electricy was cheap.
Previously i talked about finding similar colors, I’d now like to move onto sorting.
given a sparse set of colors how do i arrange them in an aesthetically pleasing order. There is an inherent problem with this statement through. I have two axis in which I can work on screen x and y, but color is three dimensional. So we have to work out a way to minimise one of those axis or combine two to achieve something close to a pleasant lay down.
Every once in a while I find a subject I get obsessed with. At the moment it’s color, so for the next few posts I want to document some of the things I’ve been playing with. Starting at the beginning…

I want to extract the color from image at position x:0 and y:0.
