Saw this..

Maybe limiting their post count to 2 per day for the first 10 will slow the spam flow.?.
Cut back your work-load a bit..
But the problem is that they are only posting once and then creating a new account and then posting only once again.
Doesn't really make any sense on what they are trying to accomplish by doing this?

Some of them just want to post ads (and links) for bogus products.
But it seems like some others just want to irritate you..

Very short Posts that make no sense.. "I much enjoy the topic you posted about"..??.

Maybe you could give the original poster (if he has been a member for 90 days),
the power to police his own thread??
So, if I see a Spam or robo-spam post pop up on one of my threads, I can just delete it,
or 'hide it' until you get some spare time on Sunday night?.

I see obvious spam in my new-post-notify email all the time.
I know you are doing a lot of work, since they are mostly gone by the next morning..
If I had a link (anti-spam link), like the unsubscribe link, that would 'hide' or delete the spam post, it might lower your work load a bit..?.

There is a 'report post' button on the lower left of the post. This notifies the admins and mods to come take a look at things. That is pretty much the fastest way to get rid of spam.

I'm gonna have to start using that button if we don't get this thread back on track!

Doax, what is the progress with your rack or has the weather stopped you?

The weather has indeed stopped me. With the ground frozen theres no way I'll be finishing my trench. And without the trench theres no reason for me to freeze my butt off putting the panels up there.

I could be working on the tank that'll be in the basement. I need to redesign it I think for the new area that we carved out. As we get closer to spring thats probably what I'll start doing first.

What's the actual status of the panels themselves?

I seem to recall that you were planning on designing a better way to hold the glass onto the front of the boxes?

The original clips that did that were little more than "bathroom mirror clips".

I think the plan for interconnecting the panels was just to use something like radiator hose, right?

The panels still all need cleaning up and some refurbishing. They all need to be pressure tested. They also need some way to hang the glass on them. I really haven't decided how I'm going to do this. Perhaps I'll ask around and see what solutions are out there for fastening to thin aluminum sheet.

Now that its going to be a pressurized system I'm not sure how I'll connect the panels. Rubber hose would have been great and it might still work. I'm not sure what kind of pressure I should be running in the system.

Closed loop systems typically run at about 10-20 psi and have a pressure relief valve set at 50 psi, so your hose idea should theoretically work fine since car radiators typically run around 15 psi.

It would be a little more costly but you could always put on copper unions. This would definitely hold the pressure and still allow you to disconnect the panels if needed.

For hanging glass, maybe Aluminum Z-Channel with some pop-rivets?
