Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools recently had a write up at http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archive/003428.php regarding Generac Guardian Automatic Standby Generator. It is more detailed than I could be on the subject. The most import thing is making sure that the generator output (kW/hr) is greater than your probable consumption during a blackout. When determining which systems will run off the generator, consider other creature comforts, such as running the hot-water heater and some/all of the electrical outlets in the kitchen (for charging cell phones, making coffee, etc.); however, such additions will add to consumption calculation.

More information about AACS's (Access Content System Licensing Administrator, LLC) take down notices can be found at: http://www.chillingeffects.org/index.cgi

and specifically: http://www.chillingeffects.org/anticircumvention/n otice.cgi?NoticeID=7180

They give an example of AACS's take down notices and pretty good legal analysis of its contents.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
