RIMS Book Status
Regarding the status of my book on RIMS construction. As of March
1997, I have abandoned the project. I have been informed by experts
in the field of electrical engineering that the Morris temperature
controller circuit is quirky and unreliable at best, but CAN be gotten
to work. They have informed me that the large portion of my book
which deals with temperature controller design and construction is
ancient history. The other large portion of my book would have been
on construction details which are pretty much common to any 3 tier
gravity system. That leaves some of a book to be written, but not
nearly enough to make it worth doing.
I am still more than willing to participate in discussions of RIMS
systems and share any knowledge I may have.
Many people ask me "Tell me what you can about RIMS system building."
Well, to do that, I would have to write a book! B-} What I say to
this request is to read the article by Rodney Morris in the 1992
Zymurgy Special Issue on Gadgets and then ask me *specific* questions.
I am more than happy to answer specific questions about RIMS
I would like to thank all of you have contributed to my knowledge of
RIMS both by sharing your knowledge, and by asking my questions that
forced me to find out more. Also thanks to all the people who have
been encouraging enough to say that they were looking forward to the
publishing of my book. I am sorry that this will not come to pass
