    Well, the E-bay Econoburn landed in my door yard this morning and it is safely in the shed. I'll try and get some pics tomorrow. It's on the pallet and won't be installed 'till the end of this heating season but I did take a peek inside.Wow! these things are built.The doors alone must run 40 pounds each.Looks to be very well built.Fortunately I made arrangements for a truck with a lift gate to deliver it as this thing is heavy and top heavy even attatched to a pallet.Oh, the folks at Aqua Therm,where I purchased it,were fantastic to deal with.My thanks to Kelly Rooney who was most helpful and paitent with my phone calls,questions and e-mails.Shipped from Minnesota to Nova Scotia with no problems other than the transport company delivering it to Moncton instead of Halifax.That was sorted out in a matter of hours.If anyone is considering an Econoburn 100 or 150 have a look at these on E-bay.The price can't be beat and the service is great.Updates to follow.

    Congrats, good boiler, great price.

    I've been to both Moncton and Halifax, can't see how the two were confused. Different providences. But you got it, thats all that mattered

    Thanks all,it's going to be interesting for sure.Yeah, Moncton and Halifax are 5 hours apart but I think it was an honest mistake and the transport company handled it promptly with no extra billing. Wood,yes that's on the list.Last year was poor for drying as it rained so much. Need to have a talk with the weather gods>

    I see the post by buddy from India got zapped.Either he is very confused or has a twisted sense of humour.I wonder what fuel he was,ah,burning?

    strangely enough, that India guy showed up right about the time the server had some kind of attack.......and everything stopped working for a few minutes!

    Who knows? Might have been coincidence.

    No harm done I trust. We had an internet security seminar at work this past week and the presenter had lots of stories. Scarry stuff...

    I think it was some sort of httpd request loop - could have been someone or a script that hung, but it never happened before in 15 years!

    Server load was up to 70 and db was refusing connections due to timeout.

    I think I have some logging turned off (for speed), so I didn't look closely - just restarted apache and waited a few minutes and it subsided. Then I deleted that India guy.....again, it could have just been coincidence. If it happens again I will worry more.
