They require shade and  covering, they require kneaded bread and wine and oil, and if any of  these things fails them, they perish; for us, on the other hand, any  grass or root serves as bread, the juice of any plant as oil, any water  as wine, any tree as a house. Furthermore, this region is familiar to us  and is our ally, but to them it is unknown and hostile. As for the  rivers, we swim them naked, whereas they do not across them easily even  with boats. Let us, therefore, go against them trusting boldly to good  fortune. Let us show them that they are hares and foxes trying to rule  over dogs and wolves.

Solar Powered Website

Low-tech Magazine was born in 2007 and has seen minimal changes ever since. Because a website redesign was long overdue — and because we try to practice what we preach — we decided to build a low-tech, self-hosted, and solar-powered version of Low-tech Magazine. The new blog is designed to radically reduce the energy use associated with accessing our content.

Great setup for solar powered website that responds to huge demand with no noticeable lag. Even better, the website is straight up my alley, never heard of it before. Check it out!
