Wow, looks like the rack is bigger and farther away than I first would have imagined!

Got any rental time left on that post hole digger? We could come and do my post holes next!

Yeah that was not too long after the sun came up. I'm glad we got the higher posts as it'll really help things out in winter with the low sun.

That is Dew, the Mrs Daox drink of choice.

Its bigger than I imagined too. Once we started clearing things we moved the rack back more than I thought too. Between the height increase and moving it back farther I'm hoping to have much better winter solar gain.

I'm also thinking about thinning out some of my trees that will block the collector a bit in winter. But, we'll probably see how it works before doing that.

Seriously, what is the deal with this thread?
It just keeps attracking these single posters from apparently all over the world.

I think we have to face facts! The world has lost interest in tracking mounts.
Everyone is starting to become fans of Fixed mount arrays..

And, I like em too!!

Those tags, are pretty general.. "design, panel, rack, solar"..
Will any one of those cause hits?

Maybe they should be edited? Maybe to term like "Solar mount design" ??

Yeah, it gets About 4,960 results (0.15 seconds)
Whereas the word 'Solar' gets about a zillion hits..

Hits are good! Spammers are not.

Maybe new posters should be required to take some extra steps for their first 10 posts?

"As a final step before posting your comment,
enter the letters and numbers you see in the image below"???


I was on one site where they wanted me to enter the sum of 3 and 7..

We already have bot screening filters on the registration pages. Whoever gets through is human (and obviously has too much time on their hands). This is why we restrict posting any links for X number of posts.

Yeah, a lot of them do look human in origin..

It must be a real PITB to have to read those posts and start deleting..

Saw this..
Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Keeping comment spam off your site and away from users

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..
