  3. Wind Turbine Overview

    Wow I had no idea - I never bought anything from GW Store but had my finger hovering over the button on a number of occasions, phew!
  4. Wind Turbine Overview

    I remember the gwstore debacle. I didn't know it was this bad.
  5. Current Water Affairs.

    you are doing EXCEPTIONALLY well! do not despair, we are in the same boat [no pun intended] "...yet i will rejoice..." hab 3:18
  6. Current Water Affairs.

    Two things. 1) For the life is me, we cannot get 6 people below 5kl pm. 2) Is does not look promising ... the rains that is. https://www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2018-04-17-capewatergate-tiers-of-state-come-together-right-now-over-water-but-dam-levels-continue-to-drop/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WATER CRISIS Mailer 20 April 2018 58 Citadel&utm_content=WATER CRISIS Mailer 20 April 2018 58 Citadel+CID_45b156954aa90027baea629709c7f116&utm_source=TouchBasePro&utm_term=Tiers of state come together right now over water but dam levels continue to drop#.WtnSFL6FOUl
  7. Wind Turbine Overview

    No problem Chris. I just don't want anyone to be ripped off. The instances I am aware of happened in 2012/3. I cannot believe this guy is still out there up to his tricks. Amazing the balls on these guys, geez!
  8. Wind Turbine Overview

    @LivSol thanks for the heads up. When I add a turbine I either am going to get one of @Energy's units or build a VAWT myself.
  9. Wind Turbine Overview

    FYI - Mega Solar is Jason Sole. For those who don't know, here is a link to check out. Never do business with him. I know of several people personally that have been burnt. I only mention this to avoid any visitor for member here from being ripped off. https://gwstoreripoff.wordpress.com
  10. Saving Water & Capture.

    Although not in SA an image that a school friend sent me. He does gutter replacements with a product called Gutterglove which prevents leaves settling in the gutters. Cheap way of storing water although it will test the efficiency of your plumbing ability.

  13. A situation that we may or not be aware of.

    Chlorine gas is easily made with common bleach and an acid. Try it with a drip of vinegar, that'll clear your sinuses...
  14. A situation that we may or not be aware of.

    My gut tells me that the previous attacks where gas was used in Syria, was 10 to 1 homemade, and not military grade as claimed. All to get peoples emotions worked up, done by nefarious characters, which in turn gives the USA a reason to respond, justifying their presence and military budget. For there is some that claim it could have been chlorine filled mortar bombs manufactured locally using 9kg LPG gas containers, like so:
  15. A situation that we may or not be aware of.

    The most internally consistent report I read is this one. I'm inclined to believe it.
  16. A situation that we may or not be aware of.

    @gabriel - as previously promised. :-) Just over a year after the last post, here we are again. I quote a little story / question from a lady named Lisa who keeps track of these things: A clean-cut athlete from a wealthy family sees a skinny, underprivileged kid. The athlete wants to blow off some steam and look cool to his prep school friends, so he punches the skinny kid right in the face. Later, when the athlete is questioned by the school, he says that the skinny kid did something horrible, and thus, deserved the punch in the face. Because the athlete is rich, well-connected, and the star of the football team, the administration and the cops opt to believe him because it makes it a whole lot more acceptable that he punched the skinny kid. But when the skinny kid gets home, he talks to his big brother. His brother may not be from an elite background like the athlete, but he is just as big and just as athletic. He has grown up hard, so he is way, way more aggressive. And he has friends. Big, aggressive friends who are willing to fight viciously and who have the skills to back it up. The big brother contacts the athlete and his prep school friends. He warns them that his skinny little brother has had enough. He is angry that they lied about his brother and that everyone pretended to believe them. He tells them that if they ever pick on his brother again, they’ll be answering to him and his badass friends. If the athlete has any common sense, he’s going to see that he and his friends are outnumbered, outgunned, and outmatched. No matter how “special” they think they are, how can they possibly win a fight against more numerous opponents that have the same skills and the same weapons, but more – many more – people to wield them? If you were the athlete, what would you do in this situation? Are games being played around the middle east yet again, my buddy Trump, who by the way is doing a sterling job (sic). The nerve agent used on the Russian spy in London, there are rumors tests show that it was manufactured by USA / UK. Why would Russia blatantly kill someone and leave evidence of it? Are they poking the west, or where they framed? Then I read this: April 3: President Trump said that he was pulling American troops out of Syria. April 8: A gruesome gas attack was allegedly executed on Syrian civilians, complete with gruesome videos of suffering toddlers. Trump decides not to pull the troops just yet. April 9: Sen. John McCain blames Trump and says Assad was “emboldened” by his call to pull the troops. April 11: Russia warns the US against striking Syria. Moscow’s UN envoy Vasily Nebenzia warned Washington that it will “bear responsibility” for any “illegal military adventure” it carries out. April 12: Sec. of Defense Mattis said there was “still no evidence” to confirm the gas attack but he believed there was one anyhow. April 13: So, without evidence, the US military bombed Syria in retaliation for the alleged gas attack. They struck 3 different sites. April 14: Russia was a wee bit ticked off and warned, “Such actions will not be without consequences.” April 16: Russia presented “proof” that the UK actually carried out the gas attacks. Anyone heard of that? There was NO EVIDENCE that Assad gassed his own people but USA bombed them. FWIW, USA bombed them right before the investigators arrived to confirm or deny the claims that they had these chemical weapons. Russia with 3 586 128 military people and 2nd in the world it military strength, backed by China with 2 693 000 military people being 3rd in the world, against the US of A, being the 1st ito military strength overall, with 2 083 100 - maybe that "athlete" should reconsider? All the above smells like when Iraq was attacked with no evidence, to date, of their alleged "weapons of mass destruction". And today, China, Russia is dealing with OPEC not with PetroDollars, but sticking it to the USA by starting to use PetroYuan. What do you guys think?
  17. anyone for a shipping container house?

    and our ships come in with all the containers...
  18. ICC version 2.3.0 out now!

    For when a new version for windows.
  19. It will make very little difference to me whether they switch me over or not. I buy 600kwh every month. The total cost to me would be about the same. I wonder what they mean by "eligible". Might be an euphemistic way of saying "we want to move you cause you're a drag on our income".
  20. Inverter powering 1.1kW pump

    By the looks of it you have a nice 0.5V drop on that cable. Inverter is showing 24.1V while your meters on the other side says 24.6V ?
  21. Thanks a lot, this advice is very helpful
  22. We have got to the bottom of this, mistakenly float charge has been set to cutoff voltage. Inverter is confused and not charging after finishing the bulk charge and depleting batteruu before getting to sch a low float voltage. Case resolved, thanks a lot @Coulomb and @pilotfish
  23. anyone for a shipping container house?

    @gabriel - at that price, you are starting to look a caravans that has similar features. :-) One day ... (click here) when I am all grown up and all that.
  24. CoCT introduces monthly electricity service charge

    Have had nothing yet, what are the chances that you are identified because your consumption is so low? From what I gathered over the years, the infrastructure maintenance is where they lose the most if everyone goes solar. So this could be there counter move?
  25. Received this today from the CoCT: "You have been identified as an eligible customer that will move to the proposed Home User tariff on 1 July 2018." The proposed home user tariff is R150/Month and 185.32 c/kWh. Do you think it will be implemented? Would be bad news for customers with PV systems and low electricity consumption
  26. Inverter powering 1.1kW pump

    I caught this inverter powering a 1.1kW water pump early in the morning. The battery was a bit low (almost at 50%), but was still operational after a long night of powering lights. 200W came from early morning light but was interested to see if anyone has a video of their own that shows this behavior in an MPP. Thanks ahead.
