"SolarCentury has designed the "Complete Solar Roof" that integrates solar electric and solar thermal technologies in a tile that is installed like a conventional roofing tile....
Funny this looks very similar to a story I posted about over a year ago on panels that are being imported by Kyocera. Granted the original story said nothing about Solar water hearing. So maybe these guys have come up with a novel hybrid use for those solar panels.

Rayguns (intergalactic self-defense mechanisms)

This is the coolest idea I came across this off of MAKE Magazine: Blog about a guy who has made retro 1950's rayguns out of everyday hardware parts. Very Cool. I'd post some pictures but he's copy righting them. His Flickr page has annotations in the images of what these are made from.

Seniors Mug Bush

Drudge Retort: Seniors Mug Bush at Photo Op
At first it looked as if it was going to be another warm bath of a White House question-and-answer session with President Bush. There was a happy group of retirees arranged on a stage, a poster in red, white and blue that proclaimed "Strengthening Medicare" and a peppy president with microphone in hand.

But at the Riderwood Village retirement community last week in the Washington suburb of Silver Spring, Md., something different happened: the president got hit with hardballs by the crowd of 80-somethings. Not only did the retirees, many of them Democrats and former government officials, ask sharp questions about the day's topic, the Medicare prescription drug program, they took on Mr. Bush on global warming and nuclear war.....

Illegal Alien Who Crashed Gate at U.S. Military Base

If this is how are system of security works around the country we are in big trouble. This is frightening on so many levels. Bush Co. keep saying the Homeland Security is the number one priority, but at every turn something comes up that just proves that they are liars.

Oh, for the times when you could get Letters of marque and Prize Courts. I've felt for some time that if you really want to get Piracy under control revive this old way of dealing with the current problem. Last year there were 261 reported acts of Piracy world wide. Hell their were 7 report acts for the week of March 7-13. Check out the ICC's Weekly Priacy Report to see the type of problem it is.

RFID-Blocking Wallet
I came across this the other day, after I heard about the government issuing RFID's in current Passports. And know that even credit card companies are beginning to use this technology, I want to make sure that my wallet is a Faraday Cage. I know that I'm being paranoid, but even paranoids have enemies. And with ID theft on the rise this I see as becoming a prime ground for these thieves.

You Get What You Deserve.

I've never been an advocate of RFID technology. I think that it is an Orwellen technology that is put forth by cooperations who could careless about civil liberties. And now thats to hacker it could turn into a nightmare for these cooperations and governments -- Namely the US Government -- who have and wish to implement RFID's in their environments.
