Rise From the Ashes This site has been in bad shape for the last few months. I have completely restructured the front and back end. Many new features will speed things up, and hopefully, we will be better than ever. Our page rank is seriously suffering from a few mistakes I made when I let the site break and stay down for an extended period of time. I did try to retain the original header. You will find that the site is now phone/mobile friendly. We are also utilizing lazy loading so if I happen to make a post with too many pictures it will load as you need them which saves me bandwidth and saves you time if the content isn’t to your liking. Most of our new content has been focused on “how to” articles simply because they get hits and people really do not care what a blogger has to say about energy. (That said I will probably have a few energy posts in the future) I have a lot of other projects going on so I do not expect I will be updating the main page very often. This site is automatically tied in with a feed to most of my other projects so the top right corner will show my latest activity. I expect most of the activity will be related to other sites. I plan to get ThebakkenFormation and BakkenThreeForks back off the ground a separate projects in the future. I also plan to get a blog going for one of my car sites.  I will also be working on client sites as...

DIY Cheap Ventilated Litter Box Summary

DIY Cheap Ventilated Litter Box Summary Goal of the project:  A tutorial on how to modify and build a relatively cheap ventilated cat box using cheap household products. Once finished this post will link to the projects page. I have started a DIY project to pull a slight negative pressure inside the litter box and push air outside. The concept is exactly the same as installing a blower fan in your bathroom. Once working properly the kitty box should be nearly odorless. Window Venting Cat Box The cat box will be modified to vent outside using an existing window, and parts can easily be obtained on amazon or at a local hardware store. Full Details of the parts will be at the bottom of the full post. Quick Clean Ventilated Cat Box As part of this build we will modify a quick clean cat box the “Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box.” The plan is to take a proven product and hopefully make it better. Cat/Litter Box Fan The fan we are using is a USB powered fan that you can buy off ebay. For those of you who are concerned with power draw. The max possible electrical draw should be around 12.5 watts, but I expect to it take a bit less that that so it shouldn’t draw any more than leaving a small CFL light bulb on. (Note it will depend on the efficiency of the USB power source. If you use a bad one you could probably almost double the draw) Expected Total Cost for Ventilated Litter Box I’m expecting the total cost of the ventilated litter...
