tried 40% alcohol in one of my aluminum-can stoves with a wick. it lit fine but didn't stay lit for more than a few seconds. I was kind of hoping it'd work, even though I find vegetable oil and kerosene perfectly good and available fuels.

digging through my electronics bag, I found the USB key and a couple of SDRAM chips I had misplaced over a year ago. maybe I'll get back to work on ColorForth.
