Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Dishing Out Real Power

Costs are down, interest is up, and the Stirling solar system is ready to flick the switch
By Joshua Tompkins | November 2005
The way Robert Liden sees it, his company is simply building an odd-looking car. It?s made mostly of steel and glass, after all, and it has an engine with a radiator and a water pump. It just doesn?t have wheels, seats or a Blaupunkt.
What it does have is a generator that can power up to eight homes. No, the device isn?t a car; it?s a Stirling solar dish, and Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has recently completed a mini power plant composed of six of Liden?s dishes.
