Re: Ikea Bulb

That's really interesting. On one hand I think it's a great idea. Very practical and easy way of getting some backup light source to the masses. On the other hand, I've a bugbear with the habit of putting none replaceable batteries in everything. The led will last 15,000 hours but the battery in it...

Re: Heating Rooms with no mains power

I suppose you could also apply Jevon's to internet connections and computer speed..... The faster average data handling gets the more 'stuff' websites say they need to run correctly :evil: Pick a single room to heat and use proper sized thick curtains on the windows (and doors if you can). Wear dece...

Re: Types of generator

In order to answer any "Which is Best?" question, the first reply should be "For what?". So, where is it going? What does it have to power? How much have you budgeted for setup? What sort of running and maintenance costs can you afford? What skills (or lack thereof) do you have? Is this as a stopgap...

Re: When to use your food stash

Others have basically said it all. Shop normally and put the food in the stash. Pick the items you're going to use from the stash, but make sure they're the shortest dated examples.

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

What a horrible day for global economies. :( The German market DAX falls 5% - French markets CAC down by a little less and the UK FTSE following close behind down by only 3.5%. In the U.S. the DOW opens nearly 3% down and getting worse, NASDAQ and S&P500 not much better. Bonds are volatile, gold an...
