    What's on your mind?

    I'm feeling positive about my solar system, I spent most of the afternoon tidying up the battery banks & wiring. I want to tell people about it but no one really cares that much. I have a 12v circuit which runs the lights and the cctv system consisting of 350w of solar, 430ah of agm batteries and 24v circuit to run all power tools via a 3000w inverter with 500w of solar & 2x50ah lithium batteries. I had to keep expanding on the 12v circuit as I was continually challenged by the real world loads, but the 24v circuit is pretty awesome for big 30 second loads while continually powering my camping fridge full of beer. I have it all together so it can be disconnected from the shed and thrown into the back of a ute or a camper trailer if needed. That's all that's on my mind. https://i.ibb.co/7gVybM8/20190720-141548.jpg https://i.ibb.co/Tv5cFyq/20190702-173408.jpg https://i.ibb.co/34QNzK1/20190702-173544.jpg

    My mother died

    I'm sorry for your loss chrisg Very much so. But for what it's worth I'm sorry for your loss, at least she was able to pass peacefully surrounded by loved ones. I think that's the best that many of us could hope for in the end.

    To all you young virile sexy people ...

    I met my wife on tinder in 2017. We now have a 6wk old son. So far so good. There's definitely a danger if you don't take responsibility for yourself. I think that if the article used percentages of the population it would have more clarity. I think there's more people in the world today than there was a couple years ago as well.

    Does anyone use peltiers these days?

    I have bought about 13 60W peltiers. Not 100% sure what I'm doing with them but the price was right and I'm a curious guy.

    Confessional seal of silence.

    It's like smoking behind the tool shed as a teenager, hehe

    I think they're more than just heros and superheros .... they're decent human beings who always have intelligent things to say, well done guys and girls :)

    just had a cool thought

    I was thinking the cruise control could use a smart phone GPS for the sake of speed detection instead of vacuum pressure from the engine or having to dig into the wiring system. While typing this I've come to the realization that cruise control is probably standard on 99.7% of vehicles these days and an aftermarket application like what I'm describing is virtually redundant. Still, I bet it could be done with Arduino.

    just had a cool thought

    Imagine if you would a cruise control system which pairs directly to your the GPS on your smartphone via an app/bluetooth. I don't think such a thing exists with all the googling thus far

    Encroaching dystopia

    it's easier to find a fast food outlet than a public toilet these days You can just walk in, walk out, no questions asked and the amenities are a bit nicer than what you'll find in a public toilet block.
