I can afford three figures, but would prefer not to spend where I don't have to, lest I be seen as a fool easily parted from money. Any price tag above $200 would ring alarm bells for me.

Looks good, I'll have to check them out. I hate how these commercial sites never give any technical specs, though, so I have no idea how much power they consume, or how much light they produce.

Re: Respect: The Bad Parts of 2011

Probably two things prevented me from sharing or understanding your experiences: 1) I'm a guy, and nobody will ever try to dose me or feel me up (or if they wanted to feel me up, they only need to ask nicely).

The lights will be external, but under glass or plastic domes. I can probably just plop the solar panel next to them, just outside the surrounding tarp or whatever more rigid material on which they rest. Each eye need not be independent.

Re: Ohmu eyes

So in summary, what voltage do you suggest I go with? 3V? 6V? 12V? What does each LED require, and what would I require if I had, say, clusters of a dozen LEDs in parallel, and 14 clusters in series? Or vice versa? You mentioned using coloured LEDs instead of filtering white ones. I agree on princip...

Gonna follow the KISS principle. Plus, my local hardware store only sells 10' pieces. The 3/4" seems to bend just fine for me, and I think I can get away with 1/2" on the spine, since there's no load on it - I have yet to test it under strong wind conditions, but I have no reason yet to be...

Re: Ohmu eyes

I work with a bunch of electrical engineers (I'm a software guy myself). I can probably figure this out, but I'm too hung over right now to read any of it.

But you mentioned using a charger to reuse my batteries. That means I need to borrow the use of someone's generator, doesn't it?

Re: PVC piping and canvas

Extra weight on exit shouldn't be an issue, considering all the weight of food, water, and booze that I'd be hauling in but not out. But for the moop issue, maybe I can put tape along the edges of the carpet to prevent fraying? Or are there better ways I should know about?

I was considering using an old roll of carpet for the main eating/drinking area, so it would just soak up anything I spill, as well as collect crumbs nicely, and provide a soft dust-free landing for those who pass out.

My goal is to live in a monkey hut that resembles an ohmu from Nausicaa. For that, it needs 14 eyes that glow either red or blue, depending on my hut's mood. I was thinking of using those cheap LED flashlights with like a dozen LEDs arranged inside a mirror dome, putting coloured filters on them, an...

Re: What's your favorite of the 10 principles?

It starts with Decommodification. I believe most other principles can come as a result of that. If implemented in a pure way, the result would completely separate the individual from the commercial world.

This year (my virgin year) my neighbour had a half cylinder structure using a bunch of arches made from curved pvc pipes fitted together, which acted as a skeleton for a big sheet of camouflage mesh (like a tent-sized ghillie suit). A few days after leaving the burn, I got into my head an idea for a...
