Serigraphs by Sako
Serigraphy is a printing process that forces ink through a fine mesh screen or stencil to produce gallery-quality art. Multiple layers of ink are manually pressed or “squeegeed” through the stencil creating an image on a screen of silk or another fine fabric with an impermeable substance. The more colors involved, the more complicated the process. The result is a brilliantly hued work of art that retains its beauty for a lifetime. (Think “Andy Warhol”)More

West Virginia gets an extreme energy makeover
Apparently the makeover to the West Virginia State Capital has proceeded much further than merely wasting a lot of money on gold leaf for the capitol dome. WV's legislature now appears to be captured by out of state corporate/billionaire interests.More

Converting a WordPress database to run under a different domain name
A program to convert a Wordpress database to run under a different domain name. Meant primarily to facilitate copying the database from a live server and altering all instances of the 'domain name' within the database so it will run on a local testing server, such as converting ohvec.org to ohvec.loc.More

Low cost adjustable solar panel rack
Mary and I live off grid, so we wanted to mount our panels near ground level, where we could easily keep the snow off (i.e., not on a two story tin roof) and adjust the panel angle seasonally, because every watt is sacred in a non-grid-tie system, especially December through February in WV. Also, the panels would be more efficient in warm weather (due to being cooler than if mounted on a hot tin roof). We didn't want to spend a lot of money on a pole-mount rack, so I came up with a simple design that we built from treated lumber, common hardware and hinges. More

SpectrumZ.com repurposed as Going Solar Blog
The Going Solar blog will feature information and ideas for solving common problems with small solar power installations, and provide space for others to share their experiences and innovations through comments or guest posts (contact Don).OBJN News, Esoteric Media, etc. will still be available at the same urls, and, of course, my partner or I may be inclined to post a rant or irrelevant digression every now and then, as the need arises.More
