I. Community Gardens

Intro: Sites are shown from many popular geographic areas, such that different communities can see each other’s work, borrowing good ideas from each other

 II. Co-ops.

Intro: Sites are shown from many popular geographic areas, such that different communities can see each other’s work, borrowing good ideas from each others

and perhaps networking their areas together.  Usually one site per geographic area

is all that is shown. Some of these co-ops are more community-active, some are

more politically-active, etc., some are simpler.

Note: “coop” denotes the extant term “coop”, i.e., a place where chickens live. A

co-operative enterprise is abbreviated “co-op”, that is, with the hyphen.  }nice list of sister-organizations. DL 2011 This link is down now; however, they’re still there at    }their homepage.

We encourage customers to bring their own bags by offering a $.05 rebate per bag brought in to reuse and by selling reusable bags in the store, at a range of prices. Recognizing that many people will still want to be offered a bag while checking out, GreenStar switched a few years ago to more sustainable options.” Recommended that you read this article, and that Greenstar increase the rebate to 10¢  per bag brought.    }co-op in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

III. Energy Systems.

Note: Some of the energy systems presented are speculative or experimental. The object for the reader is to think-outside-the-container. What you think isn’t possible, for you,  isn’t possible; but this holds the rest of us back. The future has arrived; carpe diem.     }news of wind power generation.   }wave energy, tidal, marine currents, thermal energy. a thorough PDF. DL 2011. You can check out what happened at   }and see what happened to the link. This important subject is hard to find info on. For example, Wiki has been having problems with it:   }scroll down and you’ll see the same pdf that I listed, there.

After some digging, we found:   }Wordnik’s results, and   }see Ormus there, and island in the Persian Gulf, and   }which is typical of most of the other entries that don’t refer to mythological places. Otherwise there is also:   }a different kind of magnetically altered water, “suitable to prevent and cure cancerous and AIDS diseases”; and also:   }what is normally meant by magnetic water alteration, and   }the patent that made it possible.  Finally:   }magnetic water for crops.

Has computer Go links.  For example:   }Free Go programs and so on. And:   }computer Go links.  }info on the venerable game of Go. A thorough site.  }basic services on the server are free, $60.00/year for “Plus” services

such as lessons and tournaments. Must have “Java web”; compatible with Linux/Unix, etc., Java plug-in automatically installs on Mac.   }”Go++” computer program; there are several such programs

and they have tournaments against each other.  }site of Japanese Go Association.   }basic intro. to Go.  }”smart-go” computer program.  }for beginners of Go.  }”turbo-go” computer program.  }site of the American Go Association.    }this is what we consider the second-best free chess program. We feel that, if you’re as good as you think you are, that you will probably be able to draw this program; but, if you set it at its maximum power of 20-ply, we don’t think that you will win, unless you win by time. Among the free chess programs that we have tested, only Crafty can beat it. Both Slow Chess and Crafty are compatible with WinBoard.  }sets. timers, computers. See other chess categories and listings for this site.  }”all-in-one” site; non-trivial chess problems.  }commercial site, membership by purchase.

There is a small fee for use of the server, and membership $60.00/year.   }ftp site for the Crafty manual. Use Total Commander or similar app if your browser has trouble working with this or other ftp sites.   }Info on Dr. Hyatt, including photo, the man who developed that monstrous chess program called Crafty.    }another place to download Crafty from.    }This is a personal page managed by Mr. Tracy Riegle, Hershey Pennsylvania, ICC Regal1.  “I can be contacted via e-mail at  The subject line MUST contain the word ‘Crafty’ or my spam filter will trash it.  Please allow a day or three for a response.”      }the website is Dream Quest software, and they make  a free chess program called 100% Free Chess. We recommend this program if you want to play a merely average chess-player. We often beat this program which is, of course, very satisfying, since it puts up a good fight. It is the only freeware chess we’ve found with 3-d, full color graphics,sounds, and so on. The free version is somewhat limited, though, and so of course, the program always tries to push you into upgrading, this is typical.  For the chess:   }for 100% Free Chess(tm) v7.42.

Hyatt. Crafty Chess requires Microsoft Windows operating system. Note that this app is not compatible with WinBoard; also, it will only work with Crafty, not with other apps such as Slow Chess.


1. Q: Can I receive a list of all the JKUs released before? I seem to be missing some.

A: Absolutely. The very next mailing will be the “JKU Redux”, recapping the contents

of all the JKUs to date. You’ll be able to order individual Lists that you’re missing. Update 2011: The Redux has been incorporated into the Index now.

2. Q: What does PV stand for?

A: Here, photovoltaic. Otherwise, Palos Verdes.

3. Q: Are there no videos for this issue of JKU?

A: Not really. …Well, Ok, here are a few:   }perpetual magnetic propulsion system. 0:06.   }permanent magnetic motor generator. 0:18.   }the unpredictable magnet wheel. 0:31.   }magnet motor flywheel generator. 5:12.   }the powers of magnetized water, from Australia. 5:50.

4. Q: Is it true that Tim Buckley committed suicide?

A: Yes.

5. Q: Is Crafty really that strong of a program, that I can’t win at chess against it?

A: Alas, yes. Sorry. However, if you like to lose, you’re still welcome to play against                 it, that’s why we put it on the list for you.

6. Q: Are there any free chess programs that can beat Crafty?

A: There were. Slow Chess used to always win against it, but that was an older version of Crafty, 20.14. Since we found the newest version, 23.4, the situation has reversed, and now Slow Chess cannot beat Crafty anymore, but can occasionally draw with it.

7. Q: Why do you include websites from businesses and commercial companies in your Alternative Energry section?

A: We want to show you that there are commercial firms who are developing alternative energy sources. If you’re reading this, and you are in a Government, you might be interested in using their services. We also want to show what a good website looks like, at the same time.
