stopped into the Todo Solar store today on the corner of 5 Februario and Constitución. the windows are all barred so it always looks closed, but if you go right up to it you see the door is unlocked. anyway, the 250W panels aren't a bad deal at USD460, less than $2/watt. I was expecting they'd be much higher.

my Aspire power adapter must have a flaky connection in the low-voltage line at the brick. by having that end of it shoved against the wall, it keeps enough pressure on it to maintain a connection.

a guy on the Gringo list sold me a Portasol butane-powered soldering iron for MXN730, about USD65, so I can work on some projects now, like my desalination ideas.
