It’s been a rough month. The death of Al Rutan was a shattering loss to the renewable energy community and to all of Al’s friends. It was also a real setback to ESSN and to our readers. Al was regarded as the best on methane digesters and production and he enthusiastically volunteered to share his knowledge and experience with you, our readers. Al has passed on, but his legacy is still with us. The February issue of ESSN is dedicated to Al’s memory and his legacy. Let us always strive to keep his work and his memory alive. For if we do that, his knowledge and his research will be with us always.
As you know, we had hosting problems too. But in spite of that, almost 9000 of you were able to access ESSN and download it. We thank you for sticking with us through our technical difficulties, and we hope you enjoy the February 2005 issue of Energy Self Sufficiency Newsletter. ldb
