Re: Liquid Battery

Flow batteries are not a new idea - in 1988 the paper "Rychcik, M.; Skyllas-Kazacos, M. Characteristics of a new all-vanadium redox flow battery. J. Power Sources 1988, 22, 59–67" discussed the idea but I can't find a copy that isn't behind a paywall. The bottom line is that the Glasgow lot are pred...

Re: Nothing In Particular

All my adapters use the same SSID ("HOUSE") and it's not a problem. It's not mesh - that's very different.

Slightly fun time, long overdue... Ditched Plus.net hosting, which was pants, and moved almost all my domains to SiteGround . Breath of fresh air. Massive company (they host over 1,000,000 domains but have excellent response times and great support). All domains, e.g. desmith.com/.net/.org all now u...
