Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

luther349 Re:Survival (475 comments)

i prefer a debt free life, i drive a old but nice car. im currently restoring a Toyota motorhome. and own a home. was it easy to get where i am now fuck no it took living in vans and shit to do it. because as you said rent's stupid hi and well so is everything else because everyone else wants every dime you make. people call me a self centered prick all the time but them saying that's just them complaining because im not doing something for them. but dont take that the wrong way if i saw someone starving im the street i would give him food. but in the same sentence you cant let people take advantage of your kindness or walk all over you.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

luther349 Re:They will move to a different charging model (475 comments)

no a dc compressor fridge draws very little power. your thinking of a absorption fridge they work best on gas because they use a heat extanger. and in power mode they use a heating elamite tend to suck up lots of power.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

luther349 Re:The obvious solution will meet fierce resistanc (475 comments)

i wouldn't mind a service fee if i wanted to keep my grid power as a backup. but they tend to kick scream and fight until you just tell em to fuck off and go full offgrid.

wrong i know a off grid Aussie who cut the power cord years ago. rember there electric cost are fucking stupid hi. he made up the cost of his battery's and panels in the first year and as he says its all about your usage and limit things that suck up tons of power like ac units he has a nice ass dc frige/freezer that i wish i could find hear in the states. the problem hear in usa is we get half the sun they do meaning are system's need to be twice as big meaning twice the cost. i even know a guy hear in the states who live's in a solar/wind cabin an does just fine and if you think you have to go without things buy cutting the power grid you could not be more wrong even running a ac unit during the day is not a problem if your array is big enough. its just greed anyways in the end if you cut there service your a 0 cost to them

GM Names and Fires Engineers Involved In Faulty Ignition Switch

luther349 Re:Ignition switch not the main fault (307 comments)

dunno what you mean you can control a stalled car just fine. its just you lose power assist in the steering and brakes. so it may take a bit more muscle.

luther349 Re: No one will ever buy a GM product again (307 comments)

expect drive by wire does not have that option. and if your brakes did not overcome it then the pads must have been wore you did say it was a older car.

Sony Winding Down the PSP

luther349 psp owner hear (85 comments)

well winding it down makes sense they haven't made any first party games in years not sense vita. and its been off the shelves nearly as long. the main issue of course was in its 10 year run it had very few must buy games. the hardware for the time was epic it pretty much was a low res ps2 in terms on how far they could push the games stomping the gba and ds into dirt in terms of raw power. the main issue was in fact sony when something good did come out sony never even tossed ads it was for the psp. some of witch where games like crises core metel gear peace walker Resistance god of war and so on thers a pretty good slecten of awsome ones. it also had tons of jrpgs and even a phantasy star mmorpg well 2 of them and portable 2 was pretty dammed good. but it also got alot of trash that nobody would whant to buy or play much like the original ds did. also the main reason psp kept getting titles end of life was the fact vita sales suck and still do and most vita owners are playing original psp titles due to its own lack of games. and yes fps fans did hate the fact it lacked dual anlong or so they calmed yet i don't see vitas flying off the shelves lol.
