Amazon to BUY Whole Foods…..Banking & Pharmacy next….?

Hi Guys,

Well, what I had been expecting has finally happened. Amazon has been playing with Food delivery for a few years with its PrimeFresh offering.

It found out that delivery of package foods was reasonably straight forward. As what is the difference of a TV against serials? Just the Past Best Date.

However, fresh meat, Fish, Paste etc.. was more […]

Upgrade to Optimised PV? Or, stick to upgrading to the SMA SB2.5-40?

Hi All

Well, it had to happen at some point. Our PV system went offline on the 7th May and it has taken us this time to sort it out.

The system was working fine. Then, I notice that there was no energy being created via the meter that we have in the kitchen. :o(

So, looking in the […]

One of the main reasons for getting these systems besides saving money. Is, that our lifestyle has changed.

It also wasn’t particularly expensive compared to […]

2.4kW – PV – Makes It To Our Roof!

Welcome again to another interesting post? Well, I hope so.

PV what is it?

Well, you have probably seen a few street signs on the UK road with either a small wind turbine and a flat panel normally facing South in direction. These are a smaller version of the Domestic installations that allow the street sign to work without the requirement […]

10% saving in Electricity Bill – Interested?

In the UK the standard voltage it allowed to be between 207 and 257v AC. by the EU regs. Love them :O)

Renewables become a profit centre.....

Well times are getting harder as the Bankers and Government cause uncertainty in the UK during the 2010.

Once the elections are out of the way sometime in May. There will be very little to cheer about for the rest of the year as the pound drops lower against the Euro and Dollar. Just to upset us a little more, the inflation rate will increase and the Government will be forced to increase interest rates to gain funds to plug the rather large whole in Great Britannia.

Typical example of this is to drive a 42 foot yacht into the side of a sea going oil tanker. With the same effect! Very Very little to the tanker. In fact that seems to fit the bill when it come to printing cash. Or as the politicians like to hoodwinked the general population by saying quantitative easing.

However, there is a scheme that if you are due to change to renewable technologies could actually end up better off and less reliant on those Large Six UK Electricity / Gas Companies. […]

VMware ESXi 4.0 and VMware View.

Well I have been installing and configuring a VMware 4.0 service with VM View.

This is based upon the ESXi server hosting virtual PC’s either Microsoft or other OS versions.

Why? Well one of my business colleuges was having trouble with his technical sale man that had to travel over the world selling and demonstrating a high value addition to AutoDesk AutoCAD 2010 Mapping. It basically allows orginisations such as CAA and other such government authorities over the world to analise the flight paths and procedures into each Airport over the world, with all the various types of Aircraft including the 747’s to the smaller type. I believe it even works on fighter aircraft! But, of course “You may think that. I could not possible comment”
