That would help me immensely!

Also, I'm going out to my "My Stuff" and none of it has a download option, just the pay for it option. I apologize if I'm being thick-headed, but I am having a helluva time getting my content. I have to wait until I get into town to download stuff and when I get there, I'm lost when it doesn't have download links. I'm signed on and doing everything that I think I should as in using the links sent to my email and clicking in the MY STUFF link under my name in the upper right hand corner.

Any help would be beyond appreciated!  I'd love to get this stuff and start looking it over. It seems that new kickstarters start before I can get my last one. Ha ha.

Thank you so much for any help on this!

Hey Alex, so with my comment above- i asked for at least 20 upvotes from other interested permies, to look into a download option for the Justin Rhodes product and it looks like the interest isn't there right now, so that will stay as streaming only for now.

With regard to your other stuff from the Kickstarter - you are looking in the right place, the My Stuff page is the right place to locate all your items and I can see you've got a huge list of items in there (all of which are available to you in the formats listed on the Kickstarter).  Some of these items are downloads, for example, the first one on the list is the shaving horse plans and if you click on this it will take you to the listing (the home of the item).  When you scroll down the page, keep going past the buy button, and you'll see a download link below that as you have access to that content.

Most of the movies are streaming, but there are plans and ebooks that you can download and they are available to you via the My stuff page - perhaps you just needed to scroll down further to find the download link :)

Hope that helps!




OK WAIT, HA HA!  I think what's getting me is that everything that I was confused by is actually streaming and not a download.  So sorry. I  wish I'd have known this. I guess somehow this is easier on your servers?  OK, anyway, I'll figure something out. THANK YOU!

Thanks for the reply.

I have scrolled down below the buy link, but no other one seems to have a download link, just the Shave Horse one.  All of the stuff in My Stuff was part of the kickstarter too right?  That's part of the $100 level true?  I only see the BUY link.  Sorry for the trouble.  Thanks for any help. Getting these kickstarters seems to be a lot of tech-minded stuff that maybe I'm not good at. Kind of confusing. :(

Hey, I'm a $100 level supporter of the LTLM Kickstarter and I'm trying to download the videos. I live where I can't get the net, so I go into town to download things.  Can you help me with downloading the videos? I can't seem to find a way.

Thank you,
Alex

Hello, I'm a $100 level supporter of the recent Low Tech kickstarter. I live where I have to go to town to use the internet. I went to download the videos for watching at home and I can't seem to figure it out. Can you help me?

Thank you so much in advance.

“She said: Two healthy strong adults if they truly busted theirs all day, could pound three tires in 8 hours. That you had to put over 3 wheelbarrows of dirt into that tire and pound pound pound it in (15" car tire) with sledge hammers and it worked best if two were working on the same one, hitting alternating blows. Cost overruns, yes. Even though they scrounged most of the wood, lights, wiring, fixtures; it wasn't $5 a square foot.“

A few points, I’m building an earthship right now.  I’m doing it myself.  No help.  Just me.  I’m 54 years old a d not an athlete.

I can pound up to 12 tires a day.  They never take more than 1 and 1/2 wheel barrows of clay/dirt (that I use) and I use the larger tires.  It would be better to have two people per tire.  Things would go way faster.  

What I know, if you have professionals with all the right tools, skills and logistics, things go very fast and end up working very well.  If you do things yourself and prototype ideas, it takes longer, there are changes, repairs and it costs more.  

Every time I go to Earthship Biotechture in Taos, we spend the night in one of the earthships.  They are amazing and they work.  Every climate in the world is a little to a lot different, so the earthships are adjusted to that climate.  

At the end of the day, people seem to be lying or very inept and that is hurting the opinions of the uninitiated to technologies that are potentially the most important ones.

I hope that people go learn from those that know what’s being built and like permacukture, take special care to learn how to make the adjustments for specific climate conditions.  Learn how to do this most efficiently and least expensively.

I keep seeing epic pictures of Christmas trees made out of books. I tried to make one in a past year, and it was so awful looking that I gave up.

Here's my start this year. Paul thought it looks good enough to put lights and decorations on! We'll do that later and I'll post another pic then.

We chose mostly green books, some of the best titles in the house, too. :-)



Those are great books!  So, maybe colorful ribbon bookmarks hanging out of them for decoration?

Here's a shot of the tree as it hangs right now.
