Done and done

Power will be turned on Friday as will fast internet. Sweet.

I opted not to get cable television. I went for internet only. That's more important to me than cable tv. Maybe when I get a few extra bucks later I'll spring for it, but right now it's not necessary.

I decided to spring for the "premiere" internet package: 768k up and 6GB down. Hooooo baby that's fast. My speed now is only 128k up and 768k down (I think) by comparison. I save fifty bucks a month by not having cable tv so it's worth it.

***Guitar deals & steals? Where? Right here. Price drops, B-stock and tons more.

Two things

I have to take care of a couple things before I can move into my new apartment.

1. Get the power turned on.

2. Get the cable w/internet turned on.

In other words, call the power company and the cable company. I'll do that later this morning.

After that I have to get all my crap together so I can get out of here.

Speaking of furniture, for the first month I'll be sleeping on one of those inflatable mattresses on the floor until I can buy a bed. Don't worry it's not as bad as you think. Hey, at least my bed won't be built out of FedEx boxes.

..or building a couch out of old Macs.

Making lemonade

A shocking statistic: The majority of internal combustion engines used in most cars burn fuel at only 35% efficiency. Sad. What this means is that most of the fuel burnt never fully burns itself, resulting in emissions coming out the tailpipe.

A problem with engines has always been that the fuel has never been used to its maximum efficiency. This is more or less why pollution from cars exists to begin with.

But maybe not.

Enter into the fray a Hydrogen Generating Module. This is the best thing I've seen since... ever? It's a small unit that attaches to any existing engine. It uses distilled water and some other chemicals to create hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis, which is then fed into the intake manifold. So what does this do? It allows the fuel being burnt to mix with what's created by the H2N-Gen and burn WAY cleaner - so clean that the tailpipe of a car doesn't get hot even after an hour of driving. This means almost no emissions are coming out of the tailpipe at all.


This is a very real thing. Even if you're not a car person, read all about it. This could very well revolutionize the entire car industry.
