      it's an abbreviation for "wrenches" meaning I've done a decent amount of car work with wrenches, like tranny fixing and turbp and carb rebuilds etc.

      Yeah I used to do component level electronics tech work back in the early 80's, but I moved into networking and software development, mostly embedded VOIP and security now.

      Cool on the battery and solar. I'm planning a plugin DIY upgrade when the tech and costs stabilize, maybe within 2 years, depending on gas prices. Just learned about homebrew bio-diesel now too ! :

      Whats a Wrnchs. I'm an Electronic tech from UC Berkeley, and now Honneywell, so i'm familiar with oscopes and computers.

      More importantly I am getting a battery pack for my 04 prius from Hymotion and a 6.88kw solar system for the house. No more coal powered electricity for me, and less natural gas useage. Maybe my generation will be known more for this than the invention of sex, drugs, and rockinroll!
