    Interesting. Maybe my calculations were wrong or based of old pricing.

    That said, I still run into the problem that very little of my house/property gets a whole lot of sunlight due to me living in a fairly wooded area, so I'd have to chop down a whole bunch of trees for solar to work for me at all, and I like the trees so I probably won't be doing that.

    I am however thinking about installing individual electric heaters in each room in my house so that I'm not heating the whole house to 72F. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to keep the living room, kitchen, dining room, play room and my office at the same temperature as the rest of the house when we're in bed sleeping. If they had individual heaters I could just set a programmable thermostat to entirely shut off the heat in those rooms during the night hours.

    I've already replaced my old hot water tank with a tankless unit, which first of all is awesome - I can take a nine hour shower if I want to and not run out of hot water, and second has saved me about $15 a month, which puts my break even point at about 3 1/2 years.

    Of course I have trouble bringing myself to replace old appliances with new. Sure, the new is a lot more efficient, but also seems a hell of a lot less reliable. I had bought a used frigidaire fridge several years back that was manufactured in the mid 80s, and while it wasn't very energy efficient, I never had problems with it. I replaced it with a fancy Samsung unit (which wasn't cheap!) two years ago, and I've had to get the thing repaired FOUR times already. All covered under warranty, but still, new appliances seem to be shit quality - or maybe just too complicated for their own good. I don't know.

    I'm not very well versed in celebrities I guess. These celebrities keep dying and I'm always like "Who?".

    Especially when i'm on phone i find it very hard at times to give likes, regardless of how much i press the damn button, close and open the browser and reintroduce the the page it just wont happen, very rarely it happens on PC to, though sometimes on PC i can barely access my alerts, while the rest of the site runs fine... Anyone else experiencing this ?

    Which browser do you use? I only experience such a problem when I'm on Opera Mini. It reloads the page without liking. It can happen several times. Same thing with accessing alerts.

    UC Browser and Chrome are just fine.

    This site is an unresponsive mess with bugged javascript and an annoying eu-only cookie warning that breaks it even further. I reported it multiple times but... :p

    Today while downloading games on Steam at 5-6mb/s reminded me that about 12 years ago that was my download speed but in kb! is really amazing how things has changed not to mention i'm using a mobile internet now.

    Yeah, I check a download and it's like ... oh, 6GB, that'll be done while I play a quick round of Geometry Wars... not too long ago that'd take forever.

    True. I used to take 4 hours+ to download a 40mb Kof98 roms. If the line dced or the server got probs when downloading, you can imagine how i looked. And imagine each hour of internet usage, i need to pay USD 1.5. (it is not really in USd, but u get the idea)
