The great thing about making your own power is that you don't have to go
looking up all that stuff. So i'll pass on reading all that crap.  I make
my own power -- but I can tell you it costs a heck of a lot more than 9
cents a KWH.  But it's mine.

Also you don't have to wait for someone to fix it when it goes bad, so
that's nice.

The downside is that YOU have to go fix it when it fails.. but at least
you have no one else to blame for it ;)


Or if you grew up here in the boonies maybe.  If you were rich you
wouldn't have to worry about buying fuel for your generator.

Plenty of people in rural areas still don't have ready access to power --
even in the USA.  My power company wanted around 200,000 dollars to get
power to my house and that was in the early 80's.

Now i'd probably be twice that.

Upside is I can shoot in any direction without worry of hitting a
neighbor and have some of the best salmon & steelhead fishing known to
man within 100 yards of my front porch.

But no pizza delivery .. or high speed interenet .. or microwave ..

but nobody complains if I piss off my porch either ..

so it goes

I live in Tampa Bay. 10 minutes from the nearest boat ramp. The waters
here are still clean. Once you get out of the bay, the water is such a
pretty blueish color.

If it wasn't for all the tiger sharks I go out more often. I still get
sea sick for some reason.

"Remember that there is no such dichotomy as 'human rights' versus
'property rights.' No human rights can exist without property rights. Since
material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and
are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result
of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to
turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the 'right' to
'redistribute' the wealth produced by others is claiming the 'right' to
treat human beings as chattel." -- Ayn Rand

Plenty in Colorado isn't there?  Maybe go get some land near Hunter S
Thompsons place.. but that's probably pretty spendy.


The hills in the way.  Also for the work I do the latency is too high
(near a second or more).  Old school ssh terminal is actually faster with
dialup.


Because you can!
