    3 batteries in fact..
    The 2 batteries that run the 24 volt engine and vehicle get charged every couple of weeks or so by me running the engine for about 15 minutes. The 12 volt system, in which the battery is best described as scrap metal, is kept charged from a mains charger and 4 solar panels totaling 200watts (2x20watts and 2x80watts) My truck is living at a friends house, so for the moment, i visit and work on my truck rather than live in it.
    My friend likes it there. She has a house truck with a 3 watt red marker light in her back yard... How cool is that?

    That is indeed odd. How is a banned member still apparently active?

    As for the ban reason, I don't know, but I can guess... Since the only post was a 1:1 copy of one from Speedy, I would assume it was nothing more than a ploy to increase post count, appear credible, and then probably start PM spamming or such.

    Possibly there were also other posts that were in fact spam, that were removed.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    The thing that got me interested was how she still showed up as 'active' and how one could still go to her profile.

    That user account was a spam bot. Not sure why the account wasn't cleanly banned, as it appeared both in the registered and banned group. I have fixed that now.

    Are you sure Prefect isn't a spam bot? Just asking.
