finally found a way to stop webpages from hanging Xwindows and/or crashing my system. I went into Chromium's advanced settings and disabled Javascript on all sites, adding exceptions for just those sites I expect to be well-behaved. suddenly I don't have to be scared to click interesting-looking links in Facebook any more.

hauled out my PV panel again and dusted it off, experimented today with the electrodes in a cup of salt water. hydrogen bubbled off the white (negative) wire's end, but nothing visibly came off the black (positive) lead. but the water got darker, I'm guessing from chlorine.
