Power


Managed to get t'internet to Hay's new office, which is a converted chicken shed about a hundred feet away from the house, using a relay of wi-fi repeaters to overcome a dog's leg in the direct line of sight. However, each hop reduces the bandwidth by half, so she only has about 5Mb, which is sufficient for her use.

This spurred me on to consider how I could get power there, as she's currently hooked into her father's house supply.

After considering a mini solar PV array and some solar thermal for heat, she stopped me when I mentioned I could set up a laser on the roof of the house, aim it at the office and transmit power over that. What I really need is a mini thermonuclear reactor.
