Re: trial solar still

Peppercorn, Unfortunately, the solar still does not seem to work properly. I'm scratching my head a bit. I looked at several research articles (from places like India and sub-Saharan Africa where they are looking at solutions to the clean water problem) and attempted to follow their designs. There h...

trial solar still

Hello, This is a project I have been working on. Cost was about $100 from Home Depot - - 1/2" plywood sheet was $25 - clear acrylic sheet 30" x 32" x .080" was $44 ...and a few other odds and ends (I had marine spar varnish already, as well as PL Premium caulking) Hopefully, the picture will work. O...

Re: Idea for a big get together for alberta or other's thinking of alberta

HP,

Thanks. LOL.

Still doesn't address the infrastructure questions. If I'm going to bring my family somewhere and pitch a tent, "I gotta know there's a place 'ta go..."

(The Missus insists upon this. And I can't say I blame her).

Re: Idea for a big get together for alberta or other's thinking of alberta

Not to be the grammar police, but there were parts of the last post that are difficult to understand (to me, at least). "Has to be tents 20 a night." ? Does this refer to the maximum number of tents that can be accommodated on a plot of land, or is it $20 a night in "camping fees" or something of th...

frivolous but mildly useful?

Those of you are aren't into 'puters, please disregard... *** Hi y'all, My wife begrudgingly sent me the following link, and I started salivating immediately: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/qisoftware/dead-matter As a man who sometimes has more money than sense, I dutifully stepped into line t...

Re: Cabin

Interesting proposal.

Have you built these before? Do you have a description and/or pictures?

What degree of customization is available? Rough-ins for wood stove, etc.?

How is it transported to the desired site? What kind of foundation / slab is provided?

Ball park price?

Re: technical issues

Thanks for the clarification, Peppercorn. I have not seen a message system that works like that before. I guess you are saying it is almost like a "read receipt" function then? I sent a message to Galootius on 19 Mar 16 (yes, 2016), one to Black Badge on 23 Jun 17, and then one today to Dakota on 25...

technical issues

Please move / repost as appropriate. I just wanted to ask whether anybody else is having difficulties with the "PM" function? My messages get stuck in the Outbox (instead of going to the Sent box), and then I can never tell if they are being sent to the intended parties or not. Kinda unnecessarily e...

Re: stochastic list of "grab and go" items

Helicopilot, Thanks for your reply. I am working on the "data packet" option. Plan is to have everything on encrypted USB sticks. Cloud would be more convenient, but the whole Snowden thing has me thinking twice about that approach. I am reconfiguring my basement to have a basic tornado shelter, but...
