Re: Rudy Harley Update

Well, fine. If everyone else is so willing to forgive and forget, there might be a place for the weaselly little squeeze box player. God only knows this place could use some activity. Of course, Rudy will have some forgiving to do as well, I seem to remember a certain forum member going off on him l...

Re: Rudy Harley Update

Gee, Lois, you seemed to have some strong feelings on the subject at the time: http://nomadicista.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1873&p=16662 Rudy must have hit bottom pretty hard if he has suddenly come 'round to the burnt-out shell of a forum he left behind 18 months ago looking for friends. You ...

So, before it gets too late, here's the announcement: I'm pleased to announce that effective immediately, I am stepping down as Administrator of the forum. No, wait, that's not very upbeat. Try again: I'm pleased to announce that effective immediately, Stuart Crawford (stuartcnz) will assume the dut...

I can tell you one thing for sure, if you buy the bus, the first thing you have to do is put the proper thermostat in it. Diesel engine efficiency is all about heat, and having an engine that runs at too low a temperature will - at a minimum - knock the stuffing out of your fuel mileage. Additionall...

That's quite a project, Dusty! What are the specifications on the Nissan engine? Is it turbo'd? Will you be gaining any horsepower in the swap? Best of luck on the power steering conversion. My Housetruck is full manual, and it's a handful to maneuver and park. Also very tiring to drive over long di...

I'm going to jump in and point out that nobody "had" to delete those photos, Rudy decided to do so of his own accord.

Just making sure that the impression isn't created that I made that action necessary as a matter of forum policy.

A Political Post

This is a long post. This is a very long post. It's also a political post, something I try to avoid, and suggest that users here avoid simply because such things tend to illuminate our differences instead of highlight our similarities. This post does contain some content that is partisan, and as suc...

Probably the most important thing is to purchase from a retailer who sells ~lots~ of modules. They aren't going to stock or sell anything that has a high "dud rate". Volume purchasing will drive down the price-per-watt (PV's are sold by the pallet load now). Having a 25 year warranty means...
