    community!  

    congratulations, kovie.  :)

Kind of wish I hadn't since I now realize it could have been used to power other stuff in an outage. Hopefully someone else is enjoying it now. As for the NiMh, I'll wait another day.

        at my local dump.

        Years ago.  Definitely gone now.  ;)

        Don't know a blessed thing about NiMh's.  I guess google was no help at all?
