One of the reasons I am glad that gasoline costs so much is it promotes alternative fuels. This article on a home based hydrogen refueling station is an interesting concept and I think it will really make an impact. I believe that most of this technology will come from outside the U.S. Big Oil has a nasty way of making this kind of stuff disappear. I would be interested to see how much electricity it consumes. I am also sure that the Government would find some way to tax it. That is the reason that home biodiesel hasn’t really taken off. Interesting times for sure.

I am a linux user and firmly believe and open source software. I really enjoy reading articles by Richard Stallman. They almost sound like a sermon from an old Baptist preacher! I would like to go and listen to him speak one of these days but that might ruin the image I have of him. Keep up the good fight!
I was a die hard Commodore 64 fan. As my friends were upgrading to 8088s and 286s, I stayed loyal to my 64. My final set up before moving over to the Intel was a Commodore 64, 1541, 1571, 1581 disk drives, Commodore monitor, 2400 baud modem, and a printer card to print to my Epson LQ-80 printer. Those were fun days. Being a Ham radio operator, the Commodore was well supported. For my Ham Station, an SX-64 filled the bill (Probably worth a fortune these days and I gave it away!). Some days I wish computing was still that simple. Thanks for jogging fond memories.
