There was an ad last week and a feature story this week (coincidence or unbiased, groundbreaking journalism? You decide...) in The Mess about a local company selling wind and solar power systems. I'm a firm believer in the concept and product, but from personal experience I wouldn't spend a nickle with the dealer.
I've been planning on buying a Skystream 3.7 for a couple of years now. It's a proven product and I am buying one. I just won't be spending any of those hard earned dollars with a particular asshole when I do.
First impressions are powerful things. BTW, down here in Texas we usually greet new neighbors with "Howdy!" not "Who the fuck are you?"
You never know when that will come back to bite you in the ass, do you?
