**Met on friday and talked about the green zone and where we all are in our respective parts of the project chose a date to work on the solar hot water heater.

**Worked on measuring the finned pipe for quite a while.  There are other pieces of pipe rusted onto it.  I tried DW-40  and straining with a pipe wrench to no avail.  There may be a better way to work on this, but I haven't thought of it.  We could take a hacksaw to it, since we are just adding rubber elbows.  But I wasn't up for doing that yet.  I got as many measurements as I could, but I wasn't sure where to put them (wiki-wise.)  Also it is notable that our tank is not a cube, it is whatever the rectangular equivalent is.  More importantly there is a drum set in the space that Ehren and I cleaned out next to the electric hot water heater in the basement.
