A friend of mine has one on his off-grid garage/trailer thing, and decommissioning costs involve taking it down - about as much work as removing a large TV antenna - and perhaps hauling the batteries to a recycling facility. The wind turbine runs the lights, computer/network gear and sound system. Inefficient? I don't know how much wind energy is being wasted, but it works. I don't think he's touched it since he put it up almost a year ago.

Comment More blood for the gun god (Score -1, Flamebait) 1163

The gun god demands blood sacrifice! It is the cost of irresponsible, undocumented gun ownership. Hundreds must be slain to protect you from a bit of paperwork and the hurt of libertarian feels. The fact that the NSA effectively has a full manifest of every gun owner's weapons in the US (and planet, if they wish) does not absolve you of this sacred duty.

WAY better than Word 2010.

If your WPD has anything fancy or long, Word will show what it understands and chop-off the rest.

But in LO just works.

MS Office does not have to work well anymore. The Lemmings follow the previous lemmings. (or the head lemming get a free round of golf with a MS rep...)

Feel disillusioned? I've got some great new illusions, right here!
