"I'm also working on a methane alternative for propane. It involves vast quantities of beans and franks. I have a few bugs to work out and I'm not ready to announce it yet. However, something involving a fanny pack and another suitably located propeller might have possibilities. For the moment, I'm having trouble getting the picture out of my mind."



You probably won't need the decals for this one.

I mount a giant magnifying glass over my solar panel at night to magnify the star light. So far all my tests have been inconclusive.

I think Nick (or Marlene) has the right idea although they haven't applied enough cross discipline technology to it.

Now, I'm just running this up the flag pole to see who salutes. You know, seeing if this dog will hunt, but amateur astronomers have (relatively) cheap motor driven tripod mounts that rotate at the speed that the stars seem to move. Perhaps a number of synchronized telescopes, each with a solar panel down by the eye piece might do the job. Keeps the stars in focus and on the panels.

Stick with me kids and you'll all be wearing golf balls the size of diamonds.

After all, I have the heart of an inventor.

I think this could be the answer to a problem that's always bothered me. Today, millions of kilowatts of solar energy are selfishly (some would say, quite frankly, "irresponsibly") sucked up by solar panels, and the amount is rapidly increasing.

This is done without any regard for the impact on future generations. In [garbled] years the light from the sun may be so depleted that global warming will just be a fond memory.

So: Using Nick and Steve's idea, we can shift the load from "solar" to "[b]stellar", from the sun to, say, Sirius or Vega!

While this sort of runs against the idea of being a "good neighbor", Vega is kind of far away, after all. (Besides, the way they treat Alpha Centaurians...) Anyway by the time any ETs get wise, Steve's methane converter will be on line...

Enough to give you goose bumps, just thinking about it.

We usually to camp where there is little air polution and the Milky Way is visable. Our system would probably not work in your area but we are in TEXAS where the stars at night are big and bright.

We can all be as kookie as we want because nearly everything we know about as reality today was once considered kookie enough to put many people away in a soft room. It is the likes of us who will bring the youth of today out of the standard (accepted) learning and into using their left brain (mostly unused) to create the "new" culture of life and another contraption to stuff in a small FG!

Back to serious matters.

Steve, if you need an engineer to transform your visionary ideas into reality, just let me know. The following excerpts from my curriculum vitae may interest you:

----------

In 1969, while employed by General Electric Company, I invented the High Speed Chad Reader (HSCR). This invention won for me the coveted Eco-science Award from Greenpiece.

In 1975, while employed by Honeywell, Inc., I invented the System Exerciser Executive (SEX).

In 1984, while employed by MonTech Corporation, I invented the Fuzzy Logic Acronym Generator (FLAG).

In 1990, while employed by LinxTech Computer, LLC, I invented the Heuristic Extrinsic Network. I haven't run that one through FLAG yet.

----------

As you can see, I have wide ranging experience with visionary ideas. I think we'd make a great team. I invision a Fuzzy Logic Elevation and Azimuth controller using Advanced Heuristic Algorithms! for positioning of the Solar/Astral Collector Kit. This will automatically optimize energy collection from the various sources and distribution of that energy to the consumer systems.

Contact me at your earliest convenience.

Since you have already developed the Hueristic Extrinsic Network, may I assume you are working on the Energy Galvanizing Gadget.....thus, the HEN would come before the EGG?

Good one, Jackie. You must have used FLAG to find a phrase for that acronym.

I didn't mention before because I'm inherently modest, but FLAG is a palindromic program. If you run it forward, it generates and acronym from a phrase. If you run it backward, it generates a phrase from an acronym.

I went through this over and over knowing there was an ultimate source here on this thread!
"Energy Galvanizing Gadget", and galvanizing is the key!
We, as a large group, could even boodock with all this power we have accumulated! Just the hot air would turn a lot of generators but the otherwise brainwaves (electrical impulses) galvanized, could charge all the batteries for the whole year.
I knew that this was possible because A.Einstein said "energy can not be used up, only wasted". Think of all that was allready wasted at all the gatherings so far!

Okay, now I'm scared. If you see a 17-foot Boler with harvest gold and orange stripes that doesn't wave back, that'll be me.

And I'll be telling my contacts on Alpha Centauri to avoid any FGRVs with solar panels that spin in the wind....

Morganís distinguished technological career puts me in mind of my alma mater. Iím not without credentials either you know. For example; I graduated from the Florida Ongoing Research Kommunity University.

Besides being lousy spellers, when we chanted out our abbreviated college name at ball games we seemed to get into an inordinate number of fist fights.

Ah well, go figure.
