Do you have a shed or detached garage?
I have detached garage that I ran connectivity to using a 100mpbs full duplex ~$40 tplink power line adapter.
In the garage I have a ddwrt router for extending wifi and an old PC for garage tunes, IPTV (hdhomerun), user manuals for car wrenching; and perfect for an outside the house rsync of critical docs (single truecrypt container).
I like stories like this because they make my uid relevant again.
Oh to be 19 and picking a random uid while stoned. Too bad you can't change them on a one time basis or something.
What a waste of a ~500k UID.
It's incredibly easy to convert an old VW diesel to run on kitchen grease. The trickiest part is keeping the viscosity down so you can pump it to the engine, but there's plenty of kits out there with in tank heaters for colder regions.
The ordinance also mentions "significant health questions" raised about "increased electromagnetic frequently radiation (EMF) emitted by the wireless technology in SmartMeters."
Reminds of "My neighbors wifi gives me migraines..."
I remember the egg drop. We also built bridges out of popsicle sticks, and tested them to see which could hold the most weight. That was the most engineering related hands on project I think I had in all of elementary school.
