Lots of dribbling fountains. 

At this point I could fill a book on what I have discovered.  


Here, it seems towels are better than the materials you would normally think of:




Berms are amazing. 

Conifer trees will carry sound over berms.


I would like to ask that you do an experiment and post it here.   Look into pink noise.   Get a recording of pink noise and play it over a large speaker pointed at a 45 degree angle above the road.  Sorta halfway between pointing it at the cars and pointing is straight up.  Try several different volume levels and post your results here.

I don't mind your cats.  Wildlife might think they are yummy.  People have had cats here for a long time without incident.

the idea is, that for this test, i am giving the pie manually. 

It isn't that i want to be giving out pie manually, it's that I wanted to test the /pp/1/description thing.  It seems to be working fine.   I got an email from each of you, from paypal, alerting me that $1 has been sent and the description was "gimmie pie now"

We have a new feature on permies that is connected to paypal.  Please help me test it. 

If you give me $1 via paypal and announce it in this thread, i will give you one piece of PIE - which will give you access to all the pie stuff: https://permies.com/wiki/pie

For the first five people, please follow this link, pay a dollar and report your experience:

Somebody added a new 4 star review!  So we are now at 4.6 average. 

Sorry, I know that this is probably annoying - I just pop in there every day and have look for a nice, warm feeling.

Ernie and Erica, authors of "The Rocket Mass Heater Builder's Guide" are offering a free three day "off grid rocket kitchen" workshop.  Indoor and outdoor rocket cooking, plus rocket hot water.  Also, the massive solar food dedrator, the barrage of solar ovens, the rocket oven and bicycle powered blender from free cycles will be part of this.    Three people will be selected because of their past support to kickstarters/patreon/deep-roots.  And three people will be selected because of the skills they will bring.

The schmoozaroo will be happening at about the same time.  People at the schmoozaroo will get some opportunity to peek at projects and visit with the celebrities that gather for this event.

Participants in the bootcamp will probably be directed to help with these builds in a variety of ways.  But there are only two spots left:

This event is about preparing for the upcoming "Peasant PDC" for which there are still openings:

There are two bootcamp openings at this time.   Please note that boots will have semi-direct access to this upcoming free workshop which is limited to six people:

https://permies.com/t/rocket-kitchen

So while the six people selected for the event will have full access to the event, boots are typically asked to help in a variety of ways - so they sorta kinda get in also.

If you are interested in being one of the six selected for this, please post to this thread mentioning your qualifications (skills and/or support for previous projects).  Erica will be the one selecting the six people. 




Yup, 20 apples to get a piece of pie.  Used to be 10.

All of the pie prices were set super low as we go things started.  I left the price for 144 slices really low for a while - and just now put it up to the regular price.

While I was there editing stuff, I upped the number of additional bumper stickers a user with pie can have.


Pie runs out every 30 days.  So if you have 12 slices, then in a month you will have 11 slices.  It sounds like the system is working okay.  Were you hoping that when you gave away the piece of pie that the recipient would get the half a slice of pie?
