    Oh wow! Oh my days. I would never need to eat again :-) :-)I have been trying to devise a solar system of my own too. I can see it is going to be a great place to be. I hope the event can be recorded. Enjoy.

    Will this event be video recorded for our review if we cannot attend?

    Ahaha! Ohm’s law. That’s the ONLY thing I remember from the one EE course I took in college.

    I can’t wait for this.
