I just thought of a great idea. put micro-generators in EVERYTHING! Opened a door? Theres some power generated. Walking across your floor? You're compressing plates in the floor that generate power. Turning on the tap? put a turbine as the water comes out of the tap, and as it goes down the drain. Jacking off? Put on a nintendo power glove and ramp it up to 400W. Power is all around us, we just need to harness it!

PS. Shut up keith, you don't know sh*t noob. I have SRAM force components on my bike, live in a 4 million dollar home and trash talk on the internet. What are YOUR O-cup results, huh punk? If you're scared of a little friendly competition stay home and stop trying to hijack my club. Put in a few hard miles and then we'll talk. But I'll still be talking in a condescending tone. THATS ALL YOU DESERVE THOUGH! JERK!

Let us all be thankful this weekend for bit torrent and its awesomeness.

As well let us be thankful that keith is a wicked LBS owner and knows exactly how to treat a troll.
Worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrd!

There is a lot of cool new tech with solar water heating, and the cost is coming down fast. If I owned my own house, I'd totally look at suplementing the heating and domestic hot water systems with solar. It probably wouldn't save you money for many years, if ever, but I'd do it anyway.

You would think a high roller like Mr. ****** would have better things to do than troll online. Just goes to show douchiness knows no economic bounds.

Not covering....just a few...
I get some good breezes down by the lake.
Snow? What city do you live in? Not a single roof in Toronto is covered in snow for the winter.
Geothermal is only for heating/cooling no? You'll never be allowed to dig down past your basement in an urban centre, lest you drill into the don river or one of it's creeks that run right under my house....micro hydro-gen from a stream under the house...hmmmmmm
