    Solar outage and sun alignment on-line calculators

    My favorite on-line calculator for the solar alignment has been altered and now I am frankly very disappointed in how it functions. This was the one that I used to use: Does anyone have links to others that work well and are versatile...

    I am just curious, folks. We dabble into a bit of everything technical and I know that there are a few members here who ARE already into living off-the-grid to at least some measure. Would anyone be interested in or support a full time forum for such discussions? Solar, wind, water etc...

    Please be CAREFUL when driving! It only takes 5 seconds to slip.

    I hope that it is acceptable that this is not a YouTube segment. It is quite intense and should be viewed by all drivers. It is quite dramatic, but don't worry it is not grotesque (you cannot see any of the gruesome parts of it). Vidvir - Car accident [NSFL] RADAR

    Verizon MiFi 4510L + AZBox Premium Plus WiFi {DISCUSSION}

    Getting Married (?)

    Let's have a little fun here. MrFTAMan is getting married, so that got me thinking of some way to harass him just a bit. That's typical of what guys do just to rub the other fella's nose in it. But, we don't really mean anything negative and we know it. It's just a bit of a hazing for...

    Hybridized Jon Boat / Waverunner Motor

    I intend to build my own soon. I have the waverunner and the jon boat, just gotta get 'em mated together. The river here is too shallow and has too many submerged logs to utilize an outboard prop motor, but a waverunner or jet ski manages it excellently! But you cannot haul any gear on a...
