Would Urban Homesteading be appropriate for this board? Last year I started gardening pretty heavily as a way to stay healthy/save money and I really enjoy it. I hate my job and have $15,000 saved up, so I was considering quitting, moving to some failed city, buying some abandoned/seized property and gardening full time.
I guess, as a place to start, what are some good places for an urban homestead? Detroit seems like an obvious, but I imagine the property taxes would fuck me pretty hard.
All other discussion is welcome as well, though.

/diy/, I could use a hand. I'm working on an electronics project and am needing to replicate a numerical display, blue backlit with black digits. See supplied pic. Now I can handle setting up the hardware and software with the PIC I'm using, I just can't find a suitable LCD display.
It needs to be about 2" tall, 1" wide, blue display with black pixels. Does anyone know of any good sources for LCD displays?

I have a mad-scientist project in the works. I'm going to be spending 24 hours at a tent/farm party outside ottawa next weekend, and I'm wondering if it will work. My math says it will, but others are saying it wont.
Now then, here's my project:
a 45-Watt peltier-based fridge connected directly to a car battery rated for 500CCA
How long will the fridge run?
I have it calculated that it could supply for little over 100 hours, but I cant confirm. I just need to be sure it will last 24 hours, and thats all. The battery will not be needed to start an engine after.

I'm thinking about opening my small business selling imported goods basically Online (E-commerce), although I'll rent a small physical place to obey my country laws, and store some of my goods.
I have a small hatch car which I plan to use to make delivery when they're geographically close to me and also more profitable than hiring a 3th part company like FedEX.
Since I'm starting from the Web to real world, I need to get a professional site to look trustable.
I already have a domain (.com.br)
People usually avoid buying from small sites without references, they usually google the company looking for other people opinions who had made any kind of purchase from said company.
