    Hey so I still exist!

    I allegedly burned down a house. I've plead not guilty as I had nothing to do with it. My ex is going to cop it, though. Lying, manipulative bitch. Thanks Change, I am playing the game and winning, it's been an eye opening experience that won't lead to a criminal record either way. Thanks for the support everyone. I'm still in the nuthouse but hopefully not for too much longer and I have a good laywer. Catchyas soon :D

    Hey so I still exist!

    I am just at the library, getting some stuff, I've gotten escorted leave. I'll keep all of you updated on how this goes. It's been a wild ride. I won't do any time and I'm only charged with the above offenses. I could have been charged with weapons offenses and other things that we need to discuss but the police were nice to me, lol. MUSIC IS LIFE

    Hey so I still exist!

    Hi everybody, I've just been suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. I was homeless for a month and a half, then I was arrested and taken to a mental hospital for three weeks, released into police custody, charged with two counts of arson (malicious damage by fire,) spent a week in jail, got released on bail and I'm in the mental hospital again! I know how the game is played now, though. I should be out of the mental hospital in a few days, I think.
  4. I think that for a home setup, the Hogstad patent is a bit prohibitive due to the high voltages involved. Sally is right, I wouldn't just go and grab a DC transformer and start playing with this. 200v is nothing to sneer at. Perhaps if we boil the crude plant matter, filter as usual and boil down until it's pretty thick, then electrocoagulate (19-30V and 0.2-2.6A is much more friendly!) and remove the crap, boil down, electrocoagulate, rinse and repeat until you've gotten rid of majority of the crud?
  5. Yep, volumetrically as some people have mentioned is the best way for distributing tiny doses. Dissolve your gram in a suitable amount of solvent, then you know your ml/mg ratio and you can dose accordingly.
  6. I've just read the paper attached to the OP and it seems promising. In that one they are removing the impurities and leaving the alkaloid minus all the crud. I think for some extracts, it could be very useful and avoid the use of a lot of solvent. It appears their EC setup could be easily reproduced with a couple of items from Bunnings for electrodes and a DC power supply. They used low currents (between 0.2-2.6 A, 19-31 V) so this would be pretty safe to do at home. As far as getting pure alkaloids to precipitate out of a crude bulk, I doubt it. You're gonna get a lot of other compounds that are more greatly affected by the current than the alkaloids. As a pre-extraction step, it could be very promising. I am all for cutting down the amount of solvent needed.

    My new house!

    Yeah, Halcyon. I just need some plants to put in! (and some room) Also, naja, thanks for the IDs, I broke the leaves of the 'camphor' and smelt them, didn't get anything. I thought camphor had a very strong smell. Once I get the whipper snipper going (need a tool so I can take out the spark plug and check it out) I will get to cutting some of those grasses.

    My new house!

    Deffo, SallyD! I'd be keen for some cactus. Going to stick a bunch in the ground. I'll have to come see you when uni isn't bending me over and taking me for all I'm worth.

    My new house!

    I agree I'm going to have to do some pruning! Hillbilly says I need a goat. Sounds like a plan, but how to contain the fucker?! Once I get the whipper snipper fixed I can get in there and sort it. It's has so much potential though!

    My new house!

    Hey all I've just moved house and the new property is old and pretty established. Biggest lemon tree I've seen! I wondered if some of you kind people could let me know what I have growing around here. It's really nice, but a lot of it is overgrown and I need to do some clearing. There's quite a bit on one side that I am a bit worried about as far as fire danger is concerned. Anyway, onto the pics! This tree is huge and at the back of the property. Really waxxy leaves. The lemon tree and assorted plants Some kind of fruit bearing tree. There is all sorts of shit in this photo. What's the ground cover with the white flowers? Lemon tree, camphor? tree and assorted plants. Cool stuff This is a view towards the road. All sorts of shit going on This thumbnail wouldn't attach properly. It's the one with the compost bin and sticks, easy to find. I think that's a sweet potato coming out of the compost bin. This shows a small amount of the snake haven that is all along that side of the fence. So many branches and leaves overgrown with grass. . . Snake haven and fire hazard. This is my first priority. This one wouldn't work either. It's the other un-attached image. There's some sort of vine on that tree. I think it's an artichoke or choko. . . not sure. Either way, lots of work to be done, but lots of potential too! I am going to put some cactus in the ground once I've got some shit cleared.

    Datura seed pod question

    I have a few datura plants that put out thorny pods a couple of months ago, and now they're dying off, but the pods haven't split open. Can I pick the pods and dry them and crack them open? Or should I wait? Thanks
