We've generated 4991kwh of Solar energy and 1695kwh of Wind in 2 years

We installed our solar System just over 2 years ago now, and the Wind Turbine was installed about 18 months ago.

Interestingly, the Solar system is stretching ahead with total kwh generated, despite the turbine spinning almost all the time.

However, adding the Turbine has made a huge difference, meaning we rarely need to run the generator at all.

In fact, the biggest problem with the Generator now isn't keeping it fueled, its keeping the starter battery charged as we don't use it often enough!

New CCK module to accept signatures on *Pad devices

With all the new *Pad style devices coming out now, I wanted to be able to get signoff by customers on the spot using a signature for quotes, jobs etc in our drupal based ERP system.

This module facilitates that by allowing creation of a CCK field which accepts input via mouse, finger, stylus or anything that can draw on the screen.

You can grab the cck module here:

or try it out for yourself here:

Paving done

We finally got the paving done around our house.

This will make the outside much more usable for BBQ's etc this year.

W00t.

Now just have to put back all the fences and start working on landscaping.

Moved in!

Probably not the most fun long weekend i've had, but we are now moved into our new house. Have a couple of kitchen fixes going on today/tomorrow, then we move in the fridge/freezer and can call it totally moved, but we're sleeping in new bedrooms.

Wooho.
