i'm tinkering with several computers and can't get any working
third is a dell from hell that wont recognize my hard drives
I had a similar problem with a Dell Laptop. It crashed then wouldn't see the drives. I thrashed around for a long time until I found out that a setting has flipped in the bios. the drive type had switched. I think I had to select SATA, or maybe it was vice-versa. Boot up your system, hit F2 to get into setup and check your drive type or controller settings and pick 'the other one' Maybe it'll work for you like it did for me. once I changed the type back, it booted right up like nothing had ever happened.
That Groasis waterboxx seems like an excellent solution to the dilemma of "Its too much dam work to water my trees every day!" Watering once a month compared to once a day in the desert climate, man, that would make it possible to grow like 50 or 100 times the amount of trees you want.
Definitely sounds good for large scale "Greening the Desert" type things.

Groasis Waterboxx. Two words for you.
Very useful info, thanks a lot. I am glad you mentioned the wind. How long does the wind usually stick around for and when? I would like a place where the wind would not get to crazy.
I'm also looking in Navajo, apache, pima, santa cruz, and yavapai counties. I like the mountain regions very much. Are you familiar or have you been to any of these counties?
Is opting out of the inspection just a way to save money?
I was also thinking of sand bag, cob, straw bale, adobe, or shipping container.
Yes the book also mentions this. Also one of the states/ counties I have looked into, about buying land. Also Greenlee county in AZ, has little or no codes.
How is Cochise? Could you tell me a bit about it and your experience living their? Are permits for building costly?
