First experiment with Brown's Gas was a total failure. Well, not total, I guess you'd reserve that for "blowing up oneself and one's house". When I hooked it up straight to AC, my inverter couldn't take the current and kept cycling on and off. When I put a 1.72uF current-limiting capacitor in series with the plates, nothing visible happened at all. Next step will be either trying it on grid power, or getting bigger capacitors, or joining several in parallel.

Bought a package of seafood, mostly squid, in Mexico today for about $2.40. It was 0.6 kg, over a pound. Making a soup of that and the rest of the rabbit, hoping the flavors will blend well.
