Probably won’t buy a solar panel next month
I might wait until the first power outage. Is the power really going to go down for a week or longer?
I'm on the wrong side of the building, and windows decrease the efficiency of solar panels. I need an apartment with a balcony. And one of those things to catch the rain. Or just leave the Power Station inside, with the door cracked. The solar panel wouldn't be under the umbrella thing. So hopefully the one on my wish list is rain proof.
Maybe I'll buy a real NAS. But the Raspberry Pi works just fine with USB 3. I should get another internal drive and enclosure. You get a better drive that way. Good for a backup drive.
