Somebody asked if the cost/km is still $0.02, considering the calculation error...


Hi - yup, the cost calcs weren't affected by the error.


Been working on the emergency disconnect. Did a couple of nice welds tonight - atoned for the last few... Probably another hour to finish that off. Then I will feel safe fooling around with a contactor bypass, should the urge strike.

Also, our DC/DC converter came in. I might have made a boo boo and not ordered one with enough power. The model number doesn't appear exactly in the manufacturer's documents, so we won't really know until we hook it up and see what it pumps out.

Also also, I shot a bunch of video on the weekend. More YouTube coming up in the next week-ish.
