I'm NOT "Al the Scientist"--I'M JUMPOFF JOE, aka Al. K. Lloydgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Anyone accusing me of expressing religious beliefs such as those of Al the Scientist is full of beans and rice.
I am Jumpoff Joe. I have worked as a scientist for over twenty years, mostly in hydrology, but my main contribution to life has been designing and building solar houses, solar water heaters, and doing experiments in other forms of alternative energy, e.g. small hydroelectric, wood powered water heaters, etc.
Oh yeah, and being the world's best grandpa.
I was planning to market my very efficient energy/cost ratio water heating systems before y2k got here, like last summer. But I got hung up in preparing for y2k, and playing with my grandsons.
I hope to set up a web page to show folks how to actually SAVE money, and save fossil fuels by heating water with the sun (as opposed to the hugely overpriced photoelectric systems, which I hope will actually be practical in a few years, or whenever the cost of oil exceeds $10/million BTU's)
My company name is Quicksilver Enterprizes, and I hope you will come visit me at my site, assuming I get it together sometime this spring/summmer, after the sun comes out around here, so I can finish testing and verifying the efficiency of my systems. Tell me you are from TB2000, and maybe we can reminisce a bit, have some laughs.
Watch out for those chemtrails, people! :-P

LOL Al, you are a grandpa after my own heart. Get that web site going--we may need it sooner than you think! Oh, and don't bother mentioning chemtrails--some won't get that either.

Dear Jumpoff, I am ready for Clean Solar, if we can figure out a way for it not to bankrupt me up front. Tired of being dependent on someone/something else. I made a small effort, got solar panel, deep cycle marine battery, but became speciality impaired after then. I believe I can remember your company name, inside Family joke (mine).
