New Posts Ahead


I’ve been so swept up in this wind turbine school, it’s seemed lately that there’s something missing from my life. That would be this, The Litter Box. Now that we’re halfway through the six month course, patterns have emerged that make it easier for me to make time for blogging. I’ll be back soon with a look at Northwest Renewable Energy Institute… a new kind of school for a new kind of occupation.

School is in Session


I’m starting school tomorrow (8/23/2010) for training on windmill technician glory. Posts will probably be sparse, but I’ll try to update as much as possible. Thanks to all for checking in, and a big virtual hug goes out to Miss Cellania at Neatorama for her weekly link love. I’m really excited to start this new chapter of my life, but will always reflect on the past couple of years with fondness.

More obvious signs here!

Alphabetical Google Image Search — V


V for Vendetta was one of those movies that I was pretty jazzed about seeing, until I saw it. It landed on my retinas with a dull thud, and it still amazes me that anyone thinks it’s any good. So, there’ll be none of that today. Instead, the awesome Flying V guitar, a still from Henry V, and something from the world of wind technology (a new passion in which I begin training this Monday), the V-Wing Wind Turbine.

Wind Turbine of the Future


Whoa. The Aerogenerator X Vertical Axis Wind Turbine is the strangest, most powerful design ever conceived, and should be completed in four years. Jesus Diaz at Gizmodo has the scoop on this exciting future, and the methods of repairing current turbines. Dig that groovy music on the video there.

I’m getting closer to starting school for this. The NW Renewable Energy Institute looks like a kick-ass facility, and all I need to do is pass a physical, and obtain financial aid. Six months from now, I’ll be interviewing with companies and probably relocating. This kind of future tech is inspiring, to say the least.
