Randy in Utah mentioned to me that Dan’s Ammo currently has a great deal on brand new, unissued Hensoldt Z24 scopes with STANAG claw mounts, in the original military carry cases. These are $375 each, postage paid. Once this batch of Z24 scopes at Dan’s is gone, I’m fairly certain that they will jump back up to the normal market price of around $600 each.

Cliff C. alerted us to this article: IBM and Tekvet team to remotely track and monitor the health of millions of cattle. One would hope that this doesn’t get integrated with the NAIS program or applied to more nefarious purposes…

Reader “Alfie Omega” reminded us that there are a lot of great articles on photovoltaics, wind power and micro-hydro, all available for free download at the Home Power magazine web site. They also have useful Glossary, and their Renewable Energy Resources Directory is a great way to find alternate energy system supplier that is local to your area. Needless to say, I also recommend subscribing to Home Power magazine.
