  The Lowest of the Low?
Posted by: Ballenxj - 01-29-2018, 10:52 AM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (4)

A teacher in California (go figure) was recorded by one of his students while bad mouthing our military. He went on to call them the lowest of the low?

  So, have I mentioned how much I hate computers?
Posted by: Ballenxj - 01-27-2018, 04:29 PM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (38)

While on my laptop this morning trying my best to see what's going on in the world, it's getting slower to open pages after updating to the latest firefox.
Finally, I've had enough and decide to reset the PC and reinstall windows. After about two hours of watching spinning mice and things trying to load, I got pissed and decided to take a break. I shut the damn thing down, and off to McDonalds I go for a burger, thinking things will be better when I get back.
I valiantly fight a losing battle with the little **** for another hour or so, when I decide that's enough, and temporarily retire the windows 10 machine.
I'm now surfing with the windows 8.1 machine, and firefox asks me if I want to upgrade to the latest........... Angry
My last resort is a little Dell running windows 7, and that probably runs better than all the latest incarnations, but is small.
 Come to think of it, this machine is running pretty good right now. Who was it that said newer is better?

  Absorption Timing
Posted by: DuneElliot - 01-27-2018, 11:32 AM - Forum: Solar - Replies (4)

Currently I'm not using my batteries much as I have full hook-ups but I leave Thursday and will be relying on my 600W of solar panels a lot more for at least the next month or more.

My current controller is on mostly default settings for the type (AGM) and is set for 120 minutes for Absorption. I read that this isn't enough if you regularly deeply discharge your batteries to the 50% mark. 

So, do I change this? I didn't initially realize that Absorption time was limited to a set time...just thought that it automatically switched from Absorption to Bulk or Float (or whatever it is that comes next) when it reached a specific voltage. I also wonder if this time limit is why my batteries (400AH) didn't get topped off in September after taking them to 70% despite a full day of sun and not using anything (I only had 400W of solar then).

  Don’t you hate it when ~~~

I am having the greatest time of my life.   Yesterday I was walking around camp, and tripped on a goose egg sized rock. My lower back shifted.  :( 

This is the problem that kept me from getting in the military. Spinabifida. I am missing a couple pieces of my lower spine.  Once in a while “CLICK”  :exclamation:  I walk like I am on ice. This usually last for a day or so. 

I am trying a home remedy that I hope will work. 

This sucks.

  Simple hot Water Systems
Posted by: Texjbird - 01-26-2018, 06:37 PM - Forum: Other Systems - Replies (18)

If I'm able to keep and set up the Aliner by myself one of things on the " I NEED/WANT IT LIST" is a a simple and ez for me to use hotwater system.  I just googled PORTABLE HOT WATER SYSTEMS and my eyes quickly began to cross.

Does anyone have any experience or recomendations?  I think there is a area where I can rig a simple shower by cutting and hingeing part of a counter top to fold back and then put a tub area there underneath.  This way I'll still be able to use the portable counter top cabinets after they get here by moving them to another spot when I shower.

A shower build kind of like U Tuber Slim PotatoHead did in his Aliner.  Only I can't be lifting buckets of water up to countertop level.

Idea Any ideas/info will be appreciated
