    1/5,
    If you understood EMP a bit better you'd understand why the place you saw it posted before had negative reviews.

    The sole purpose for a Faraday cage is to re-route the current around the object being protected. So cutting and pasting plates inside a case are of little value. You have to have a shield around the outside that is continuous, with no gaps (or inside with no gaps and your device isolated (not touching) the shielding material. The goal is not to have any current flow around the device.

    Much better (and cheaper) to do this is get an aluminum trash can. Put your laptop and drives in your Pelican case (which is nice to protect against bumps..but is NOT bulletproof) inside. Take your copper or aluminum foil and make sure your lid is securely on with the copper or aluminum foil around the edges insuring a tight seal...no gaps.

    The main deal is to electrically isolate the electrical device from touching your Faraday cage, and then ensure the cage is sealed.

    Nice thing about using the trash can is you can unseal easily, and add gear to it easily.

    I do have a metal camera case which might do as a Faraday cage, but I'd have to sacrifice the key lock and seal the edges better than it seals with just the snap locks.

    One of Jerry's better ones, emphasis is on the interlocking of computers and power with everything and how fragile it is in the end.
    Relatively short and a good read. As usual some good lessons.

    One of Jerry's best. Basic theme is what one person can accomplish for the survival of the entire community. Sort of an anti raider story in that it seeks to ensure the the tools and mindsets that will lead to the survival of the community and local society.

    Great selection of garage plans with various sizes to choose from. It looks like you could take the plans to the local gubmint office and have them approve (or add whatever local items are needed). Good dreaming material :^)

    The latest edition of Kearny's masterpiece and although a little dated, well worth reading. Survival is all about attitude and he was one of the first to stress the survival aspect of atomic war and that with a little luck and some preps you could survive.

    Very short introduction, limited amount of information, but only takes a couple minutes to read. Based on Argentina and its collapse in the early 2000's so the writer knows what doesn't work based on real life, not gaming. Others have fleshed it out in greater detail, but it is a short thought provoking piece.

    This is a very helpful guide for making a long term, useful oven. Keep in mind that in a survival situation, all you will need is access to water and just about any clay earth and vegetation, but these ovens will have shorter lifespans and may crack. If you have access to seashells, you could cook them, soak them in water, and crush them to make quicklime and add this with wood ash to your clay and possibly sand to make a crude cement. Overall, this cob instructional/guide is very useful.

    A very comprehensive guide to canning fruit and fruit products...scales and measurements may need to be slightly adapted for places with metric systems of measurement.
