**Tuesday: Met at the farm to try to figure out when we will meet throughout the semester.  Turns out to be tricky.  We chose Tuesday at 2:30 and Friday at 11.  Both of which don't work at this point.  Discussed heat exchangers and tried to think about whether a less of a larger tube or more of a slimmer tube will do a better job of transfering heat.  Ehren's going to look into that.  I'm working on tempered glass.  We talked about different mounting ideas.  Charlie came up with one that sounds good, ice damn free and feasible.  Dan, Ehren, and I used the solar pathfinder, and happily found that only minimal shade in December will decrease the excellence of the southern roof we are planning to use.

tempered glass. Warren D. Smith suggests low-iron hi- transmission tempered glass. Power House Museum agrees

Discovery: Having a job that says that you are "on duty 24 hours a day" does not lend itself to getting a lot of classwork done. oops.
