Oh man, I can't believe I missed the solar charge controller chat :cry: . I especially wanted to hear LadyAda talk about why true MPPT doesn't work on small scale, and how she came up with her solution. Thanks for trying, George. Can I ask why y'all don't use UStream's recording features as a backup? I realize that it's not as good a product since it doesn't integrate the chat, but it would be handy to at least have something in these cases.

Ah well, live is live, I'll take my lumps and tune in this week for the 7/9 vid. :D

Yeah, I was really hoping to see this one, but life has a way of interfering with watching videos :-(

There may be a back-up. Don't hold your breath, but I'm working on getting it up.
