    Nice. I was gonna ask how you kept the melting ice from ruining the regulator, but then I read
    that you use the reusable freezer packs. :)

    Dang! That copper tubing is twice as much at my local store (at least according to the
    website.) Guess they must vary the price depending on competition in the area.

  • Posted in thread: Well Water with a slight sulfur smell????? on 07-31-2015 at 02:49 PM
    We've lived on wells with sulfur smell. Boiling will not remove it. A carbon filter will do the
    trick though.Just what I was going to suggest. Just put in a whole-house filter and put a
    charcoal filte...

    Ouch. May have some off-flavors, and will likely be more alcoholic than intended. It'll still

    Not sure I have any ideas right now for a plot twist or story arc, but a few fun "traps" are
    the "endless stairs" where you get so far and then are teleported back to the starting point

    Not exactly true. Some Linux distros don't care if you log in as root and fck it up! Others
    have the security feature enabled, but you can turn it off if you think you know how to operate
    a computer.G...
