Utilities Face Billions In Losses From Distributed Renewables

wulfmans I LMFAO at utilitys (280 comments)

I built a house 1 mile away from the overhead power lines. They told me it would cost me 60K USD to run power to my house. FUCK THAT. I installed 6KW of solar panels a nice inverter a decent battery bank and a 30kw diesel genset for 20k. These leaches need to die a horrible death.

You're Doing It All Wrong: Solar Panels Should Face West, Not South

wulfmans Re:obviously they should track the sun (327 comments)

Its way cheaper to just add more panels. At 39 cents per watt plus mounting costs it makes no sense unless you do not have the room to mount all the panels you need. I run my electronics lab and whole house on solar and it works well. 7KW of panels is plenty for most people that have a normal home. After that the other factor is power storage. Buy Edison batteries for a lifetime of storage.

Imagining the Future History of Climate Change

wulfmans None (495 comments)

There is always one thing you can say about weather. It's always changing. So far there is no warming and to be honest there is cooling. IF you believe the cooked climate books the governments and others are trying to force feed you you have real issues.

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

wulfmans Since when (818 comments)

The US of A has NEVER been a Democracy, Our founding fathers knew that a Democracy was not the way to do proper government and framed what we are today called a Constitutional Republic. What we have now is a twisted mess of a government that is controlled by the money not the people that it was intended to be controlled by.

Impending CA Sales Tax Sparks Amazon Buying Frenzy

wulfmans Re:No thanks (259 comments)

Guess you could try to get it right. State income tax goes to the state, There is a fixed state sales tax that goes to the state and some counties and cities also add some sales tax to sales in their counties. I lived there for most of my life and glad to not live there anymore.

Facebook Scans Chats and Posts For Criminal Activity

wulfmans Re:Facebook is a public place (483 comments)

Very interesting. I run an IRC server on my server. The network admins had a chat about illegal chat flowing through our servers. One admins father is a lawyer and made a point that if you start to police chat you are open to liability from the stuff you miss. Also whats illegal one place is not illegal in another. What a slippery slope failbook is on now. Oh BTW, Who still has a failbook account anyway?

Vermont Bans Fracking

wulfmans yeah sure (278 comments)

WTF ? Water tables are at most 1k feet deep. Oil wells are well over 5k feet deep with a LOT of non permeable rock in between how can this fracking fluid get into the water table ? If all due precautions are taken there is no leakage. There is a well casing that seals off the drill hole where is goes through the water table. If we all want to be dependent on other countrys for our energy, stop the fracking and pay 5$ a unit for natural gas or 10$ a gallon for your gasoline. Too much politics and not enough common sense.

GOP Blocks Senate Debate On Dem Student Loan Bill

wulfmans Re:Obama knows how to play politics if anything. (834 comments)

It never fails to surprise me the idiocy of the "civilized society" folks and taxes. Are you saying the more civilized our society is the higher the taxes are supposed to be ?
My father of 87 remembers a time with NO personal income taxes. Does that mean we were somehow less a civilized society ? I dare say not. Most if not ALL federal income taxes go for pure bullshit that the federal government should have no business doing. I say that individuals should have no contact with the federal government, No federal income taxes. Let the interface with people be on the local or state government level and let the states interface with the feds. Let the states pay fees or whatever you want to call it to the feds to cover only what they are constitutionally allowed to do. 90% of the feds powers they have taken are 100% illegal and not constitutionally allowed. But we the sheeple over the past 100 years have allowed them to do this to US. Remember dems AND repubs are all the same animal with different spots doing the same thing to you, taking your personal freedoms away bit by bit.

They've been posting for the past few hours about the Sony server.

These are some of the things they have said.. lol

"Sony is sinking into a pit again. Nice.
Today we planted the ISIS flag on @Sony's servers #ISIS#jihad
Sony, yet another large company, but they aren't spending the waves of cash they obtain on their customers' PSN service. End the greed.""

I went to click on it and it gave me a page that said i was not allowed to see the page or the page did not exist. I searched Slashdot but the story has vanished. The story said that the mails leaked to wiki leaks were causing a lot of commotion. Since i was not able to read the full post ( Google only gives me a little bit to see ) I am unable to read about this missing story"

Gmail down again

wulfmans wulfmans writes  |  more than 5 years ago

wulfmans (794904) writes "Google's popular e-mail application Gmail is down Tuesday afternoon, in an outage affecting both free and paying users.

The outage began sometime around 1 p.m. Pacific time, and remains down, despite an oddly timestamped message on the company's status dashboard, which says service is back for some and will be restored for all in the near future.

In a message posted at 11:28 a.m., the company wrote "Google Mail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change."
