For me my avatar has disappeared, I thought it was just me because my company blocked the site I was hosting it from, but it's possible the site has been taken down completely. So can you see my avatar? No need for anyone to even post, I'm just curious and then this thread can die. Thanks!

It's gone. This seems to be the source URL:

You the man. I don't have the search engine skills you do apparently because I couldn't find another source anywhere.

Hex is a master of everything that my brain cannot compute.

If ever we go about starting an off-grid community, I betcha he could figure out how we could still have a form of electricity and warm water and stuff. (It goes without saying, I'd vote you in charge of all that stuff, Hex! Heart)

gotta like the peeps that have a practical brain on non-practical things.

for example:

i am fully capable of constructing, isolating and laying the electrical lines
and plumbing in a self-made house. i can calculate how thick the support beams
or how strong the frame of the building must be for which it must support.

what i can't figure out is things like fuse boxes, how to connect it safely to the power grid,
or in the event of having no power grid at all, how to connect it to energy-providing sources.
i can mount a airconditioning unit, indoor and/or outdoor, drill the holes in the walls [with water lol],
and calculate which airconditioning unit i'd need.

i'm rather a technical mind, but i'm not a deeply calculated mind. wel, perhaps watching too many
crime investigation and stuff like that would make me a calculated killer but thats another thing. Big Grin

or like building a V8. yeah i can take apart and replace crankshaft, rockers, etc. i do not have any clue
on how to correctly set the ignition timing or how to map an unmapped engine. 

i could mount that airco unit, but i'd not be able to calculate or reason which unit and big building would
need and how powerful the air displacement must be taking into account the corridors, the obstructions,
the filters etc. and which routes it needs to take to supply a constant flow of air exactly as strong for every
single room in the building, whether that is the top one or the lower one, closer to the units itself.

i'm sure HEX indeed is the practical engineer mind that is able to do all these things. map an engine.
calculate the equations neccesary to finish a [modern] house into a livable house, air flow. etc.

i think that only shows how diverse we are and how we can actually benefit from eachother.

I appreciate the vote of confidence guys, but you'd all be dead by Day 2 on my watch  Tongue.
