Does coating your food product in food grade diatomatious earth before loading it onto a solar dehydrator's trays have a noticeable effect on drying time?
I'd test this out myself but I lack a dehydrator currently.
As an Ex Jehovah's Witness I can tell you that you need a zealot to distribute this book at whatever price you set (even with no price at all).
I doubt your message inspires the special kind of crazy you are looking for - but I admit; I could very well be wrong to think that way.
Personally, I would make the textbook available though print on demand.
I would then organise a set of clips and sound bites from your audiobook version to be included in animated memes. I recommend Paul's very own hand drawn graphics animated in 20 second short vid's with the goal of directing folk on social media to the print on demand book or full audiobook for more.
Although the scene of the world keeps on changing, I am positive that a paradise with Paul's is secure.
I have a copy.
Good's guide to composting is an entertaining and informative read that does not take long to pay for itself.
Quirky hurmour pervades all 150 pages of this rotten topic. If the thought of "composting your enemies" hits you funny you are in for a good read.
Recommended 4 out of 5, because the only illustrations in the book are on the cover.

okay, if we get to push the over-ton window a tad; how about hiring Paul Stements as a consultant on naturally producing the waterproof membrane you'll need to install. I bet he could pull off a living waterproof barrier if anyone could.
Excellent! You brought it to life perfectly! And thanks for avoiding the Bombadil ending. The world breathed a sigh of relief when Peter Jackson decided to leave the whole "ring-a-dong-dillo" business out of the movies.
I'm compelled to protest!
Tolkien invented Tom Bombadil in memory of his children's Dutch doll, and wrote light-hearted children's poems about him, imagining him as a nature-spirit evocative of the English countryside.
Jackson missed the entire point of Tolkins' writings when he ditched Tom for an epic socialist action adventure extravaganza.
If you recall Tom was the only character completely unaffected by the RING OF POWER - quintessential power, corruption and devastating industrialisation.
This, I theorise, is because Tom is the incorruptible male aspect of nature, - think Greenman - where as is wife is the feminine aspect of the same.
There would be no grand adventure to save Middle Earth without the resurrection and blessing of the Shirelings by The Greenman from Death personified as a Barrow Wright - literally Grave Rite http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Barrow-wights
Casting Paul as Sauron is bafflingly ill-conceived. If anything he is the the Jolly Green Giant; the Greenman of our generation saving the merry-folk from the coming Long Cold Winter with carefree expressions such as "ring-a-dong-dillo."

"With your help, we will prove it."
Also, although implied there is no mention of the word prototype. Which is a loaded world, in a good way.
Unless there is. ::roll-eyes:: gonna have to watch it *again*.
Whatever Paul decides, to my mind this project is always going to be Wheaton's Dandelion Den. It's a fox hole I'd gladly get into and why waste time with any other crop? Because, you know, that is what's going to be growing on top.

His whole shtick is "Winter is coming" and preparing for the cold of a grand solar minimum.
Negotiate an ad on his channel and gain attention like Alosha did:
Beyond Glory (Ascended?) and damned-ably expensive
An professionally animated video summation of the building processes, detailing;
(1) issues intended to be resolved and objectives at the outset
(2) problems encountered and how they were resolved
(3) framework put in place to measure operation success
- featuring the return of fan favourite pop up cartoon character Bandana Paul, Paul+ and a currently envisioned "Future Paul".
I'd actually like to see point one animated and presented for the kickoff, but realise that won't be likely.
What follows is an except form a treasure hunters diary.
The point I'm making with it is that :-
(1) it is not valuable unless you've worked really hard to find it for yourself
(2) no-one knows where to start initially, or what they will find, and that's okay.
(3) The reward is worth the effort, but only if you make the effort
Having said that I would like to see a "knowledge Base" or "kingdom" classification system, on permies for identifying common problems that drill down to variant solutions depending on the answer to pertinent questions. I thought about building it myself but honestly don't have the chops to pull it off. All the data is here, but it is currently organised like an ancient, partially looted, treasure chamber
So self-determination "in spades" is still stranded issue for gardens, tomb raiding and knowledge mining.
"Feverishly we cleared away the remaining last scraps of rubbish on the floor of the passage before the doorway, until we had only the clean sealed doorway before us. In which, after making preliminary notes, we made a tiny breach in the top left hand corner to see what was beyond. Darkness and the iron testing rod told us that there was empty space. Perhaps another descending staircase, in accordance to the ordinary royal Theban tomb plan? Or may be a chamber? Candles were procured - the all important tell-tale for foul gases when opening an ancient subterranean excavation - I widened the breach and by means of the candle looked in, while Ld. C., Lady E, and Callender with the Reises waited in anxious expectation.
It was sometime before one could s`ee, the hot air escaping caused the candle to flicker, but as soon as one's eyes became accustomed to the glimmer of light the interior of the chamber gradually loomed before one, with its strange and wonderful medley of extraordinary and beautiful objects heaped upon one another.
There was naturally short suspense for those present who could not see, when Lord Carnarvon said to me `Can you see anything'. I replied to him Yes, it is wonderful. I then with precaution made the hole sufficiently large for both of us to see. With the light of an electric torch as well as an additional candle we looked in. Our sensations and astonishment are difficult to describe as the better light revealed to us the marvellous collection of treasures: two strange ebony-black effigies of a King, gold sandalled, bearing staff and mace, loomed out from the cloak of darkness; gilded couches in strange forms, lion-headed, Hathor-headed, and beast infernal; exquisitely painted, inlaid, and ornamental caskets; flowers; alabaster vases, some beautifully executed of lotus and papyrus device; strange black shrines with a gilded monster snake appearing from within; quite ordinary looking white chests; finely carved chairs; a golden inlaid throne; a heap of large curious white oviform boxes; beneath our very eyes, on the threshold, a lovely lotiform wishing-cup in translucent alabaster; stools of all shapes and design, of both common and rare materials; and, lastly a confusion of overturned parts of chariots glinting with gold, peering from amongst which was a mannikin. The first impression of which suggested the property-room of an opera of a vanished civilization. Our sensations were bewildering and full of strange emotion. We questioned one another as to the meaning of it all. Was it a tomb or merely a cache? A sealed doorway between the two sentinel statues proved there was more beyond, and with the numerous cartouches bearing the name of Tut.ankh.Amen on most of the objects before us, there was little doubt that there behind was the grave of that Pharaoh.
We closed the hole, locked the wooden-grill which had been placed upon the first doorway, we mounted our donkeys and return home contemplating what we had seen."

Duplicating a recipe derived from a "bitter". As it definitely is!
I've done my best to divest this information from the source who was participating in "Trump Engagement Syndrome" but feel free to track down the origin (What's Down the Rabbit Hole Facebook page) if you are into that sort of thing.
Anyway, on to the bitter end:
Quinine is something that anyone can make at home and something that is being manufactured each and every day in the form of Tonic Water. Tonic Water has the exact same Quinine that the drug being used to treat the [Coronu]
Quinine has many uses and applications. It is analgesic, anesthetic, antiarrhythmic, antibacterial, antimalarial, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, antipyretic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, astringent, bactericide, cytotoxic, febrifuge, fungicide, insecticide, nervine, stomachic, tonic
If you ever feel a chest cold coming on or just feel like crap make your own Quinine. It is made out of the peelings of Grapefruits. Take this concoction throughout the day as a tea. Zinc enhances its effects,
All you need to do to make your very own Quinine:-
Take the rind of 2-3 grapefruits.
Take the peel only and cover it with water about 3 inches above the peels.
Put a glass lid on your pot if you have one....a metal one is fine if you don't.
Let it simmer for about 2 hours.
Do not take the lid off of the pot till it cools completely as this will allow the Quinine to escape in the steam.
When I followed this recipe for myself I immediately recognised the taste of the cooled brew from my youth at the bar of my Grandfather's Ukrainian Club. That should read as: authentic.
My hope is that this simply adds another bitter to your "bow".
I'm hoping it'll also scale down really tiny to fit on browser tabs, but would it still work?
You don't need to scale the entire logo down for a favicon. You can take an element - in this case I suggest The Element - and make it prominant in the cramped space you have available.
Such icon files can be 16×16, 32×32, 48×48, or 64×64 pixels in size and are used by different browsers in different circumstances. I'm happy to explain more but here is an example from my own past work.
To sum up the 'cast in a paragraph; BBSs are simple to use by normies, promote ownership and responsibility (homesteading) because you are not relying on architecture that is not entirely under your control, and even the oldest devices can be modified to access a BBS keeping old tech relevant.
Which reminds me; Patreon is under serious legal threat for censoring its customers. Vox Day's legal Team and Owen Benjamin's following may just financially collapse Patreon entirely.
Make the BBS great again Paul! https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/ hosts its super lean website locally with solar. How lean can cheap can BBSs be?
Back to the OP - plain text in the newsletter forces the authors to work harder expressing their colourful personalities. Which as other posters have noted is a kind of beauty that should be praised. The authors work harder so that the tech the audience use to receive the information can stay simple, relevant and repairable.
Summary: To my mind; rough and workmanlike utilitarianism equates to enduring honesty. Naked truth is attractive to the honest.
Ash Glamour Shot, The stout piece of grain on the right was cleaved.
I was considering combining them into a compound mallet, but both pieces are green so that would have been a fail I guess.
Actually ended up using a thin chisel to gouge the bowel and a straight blade Stanley knife for the fine work.
Honestly no way to improve the bowel at this stage without some blade with a curve to it. Which I just don't have at the moment.
Learning see. Paul was right.
I will be coming back to this spoon and improving the finish when I obtain the correct equipment and it has dried a tad.
Wanted to post this in the cider press due to some robust phrases I want to use regarding "Fruit of the poisonous tree", but since I can not I'll limit myself to simply point in out more contained commentators.

Steiner is said to have got his start in Mystery School teachings from a gardener. I suspect there is deep truth there occult-ed by smoke and mirrors to mislead idiots.
Actually, I can't help wondering if the Electric Universe theory purported by The Thunderbolts Project is currently valid in that the crystalline structures that house microbes (in gut and ground) resonate with energies linking the heavenly bodies. ::shrug:: if I can't measure it I can't manage it.

What cultures do you recommend for controlling mildew?
How do you identify the microbes you are working with, or do you infer their presence through a chain of consumption from the original food source. Bottom line: How can I be sure I'm para-trooping in allies.
How much of the gas infusion recommended for "Boogie Brew" is hot air? - in other words do we really need to invest in electric pumps and huge rain barrels fitted with perforated PVC piping? If so, Is there a natural alternative
I want to use a pressure pump to spray fungi / microbe corpses onto foliage. Why should I prefer living cultures?
