Reminder: December 3rd is this coming Saturday, for our next to the last
EV Gathering of 2016. Then, two weeks later, on the 17th, we will
have the last 2016 Gathering, at the Hometown Buffet in Santa Ana.

After that, we wait 3 weeks instead of two, to pass-over the two holiday
weekends, for our first Gathering in January, 2017. The first post of
this thread has more details of the upcoming Gatherings.

I wish a Happy and Joyful holiday season to all of you.

Looking forward to meeting in Santa Ana on the 17th.

Today two good things:
1. My urologist removed the stent he had inserted after my surgery to zap the large kidney stone, and suddenly my bleeding and discomfort stopped. Followup at end of January after another test to evaluate diet. I meantime I can eat normally.

2. My electrician Quintin finished all the electrical on my solar project yesterday, and today the system passed Final Inspection with Claremont. I still have to email a photo of the signed job card to SCE and wait for PTO, and I am going to paint the conduit on the roof before applying the warning stickers, but basically the many months of design, anguish, redesign, procurement,, and installation are over, It looks good.

On Saturday I am bringing the remaining wire on three 500-ft spools of Red, Black, and Green #10 cable to transfer to Robert for his projects with Mike and others.

Saturday is also E-Waste day at LA County Fairplex in La Verne. 9am to 3pm. I intend to stop there on way home. I will have some true e-waste in my car, such as a dead hard drive, dead meter, etc. You are welcome to bring a modest amount of other e-waste for me to take there as well.

I will also have to give away some nice quality assortment of premium audio cables, video cables, 14-50 outlet with enclosure, and other stuff for you folks to look over in case you want any of it. It is just taking up too much space and I have no foreseeable need for it.

Holiday greetings to all.
Cool video made local news:

In the video below, the camera is in a Model X. With the new tweak in its radar introduced this fall, the Model X is able to see a sudden slowing of car #1 beyond the car #2 immediately in front of the Model X. The Model X sounds its emergency alarm, and automatically applies its emergency braking before car #2 responds. The response of car #2 is too slow to prevent the crash, but the Model X avoids both cars.

Suggest you blow the video up to full screen to watch it.

17 Dec was a well-attended Gathering in Santa Ana. Sorry i did not get
the thread title changed in a timely fashion. I have been busy taking care
of my wife, who managed to flip herself onto the ground and aggrivate her
back ... and getting double-pane vinyl windows and doors installed.

Next meeting is January 7th at the GC in COI, skipping the Christmas
and New Year weekends.

Tom ... a real life Tesla saving someone from a crash. wow!
But no usable link to the video. :(

SpaceX has returned to flight with a successful launch of a cluster of Iridium satellites from Vandenberg. The first stage successfully landed on the barge "Just Follow Instructions". Cool video from the first stage as it homes in on the barge.

Hi folks,

Sorry I was unable to attend breakfast this morning, Jan 21, in Santa Ana. Karen and I had a full day attending the Women's March in 3 locations, with my estimates of attendance: Pasadena, 1200; downtown Los Angeles, 200K; Santa Ana, 800.
My sign read:
"Climate Science, NOT Denial"
It was great to be part of a world-wide event.

Lots of other clever signs, many which I can't repeat here.
