[Jim Ray sez:] the current rhce study group meetings started as weekly and
will probably settle into twice monthly. If anyone were interested in an
old fashioned style barn raising, my garage could be spiffied up into a
quasi permanent meeting place. I could chuck this big conference table on
the crush and run (close to dirt) floor, supply 100A 120V and IP. Oh,
there's a 18,000 BTU AC, too. It ain't purty yet could work.
