I think I had better step in at this point.
The purpose of Gotwind (to include this forum) has always been, from my mission statement in 2006.
'To share ideas and thoughts on the design and building of renewable energy projects'.Now please let me share something with you.
I spend every day monitoring this forum myself for free, listening, reading, and helping if I can, and always bow to an experts opinion, Ghurd being one of them in certain areas.
Other duties involve banning and deleting the ever more spam crap on the forum which is almost a job in its self..
Therefore I am often cautious when a new member posts a product(s) for sale (that also includes a direct web link to their own website) - I check it it out and evaluate as best I can.
I don't think I am ever negative about projects, quite the opposite, I welcome them.
I simply say what I see/read, from both experience and the safety aspect that I apply to my own projects.
Let's not forget, Myself and a partner (2 guys) designed, built and had shipped a metric tonne 7000 miles from the U.K. to Las Vegas, to reach the exacting U.S. Fire Marshal laws - the LG Skycharger. - It almost killed us delivering it on time..http://www.gotwind.org/lg_skycharger_recharge_pod.htm
I am not a novice - but happy to admit I'm still learning myself.
I've made countless mistakes - but hopefully learnt, a little bit :)
I hope this forum thread can continue on a more positive line of communication.
