Easy backup of your mobile photos

Are you worried about photos on your mobile getting lost? Do you have good backup? Well, Google have got some good and free help for this. And the best part, it happens without you doing anything about it. You take the pictures, Google take care of the backup.
This is the steps:
• sign up for a Google account
• start using Google+
• instal the Google+ app on your mobile phone
• when asked, gain the app access to your album

Google will now take backup of all your photos in the album, and also automatically backup any new photos after you take some new. You will then have the photos in the Google+ app, and can share or copy as you want. If you delete photos from your phone, they will not get deleted from Google.

One tip: Use wifi the first time because if you have a lot of pictures it will be a big amount of data. And over 3G it may cost you some money.

Solar project update

I had to move the hole thing because of to much power loss in the cables (to long cables). I have also set up a new panel and made some modifications on the frame for the panels, so now I can adjust the gradient to get more energy from the sun.
I have also made a connection so I can charge my phone from the system:)
The battery bank is now 239 Ah in case of some days with bad weather.
To save power I have installed a light sensor to control the lights I have on the outside of the house. There is also a timer to shut down the power for those lights in the middle of the night (no one is out here at that time)
The system works great, but I need more power. So next step will be a wind generator.

Disco in Finland

Not so much tech, but a bit funny.
Enjoy how they learn to dance disco in Finland; 

My solar power project

Just started a project where I want to test out solar power. A cheap solar panel that provide 6W is mounted on the south wall of the house.
I had two 12V batteries from some other project, each on 7,5Ah.
