I managed to get home in time for the bus today. Then again, the bus was late, so it wasn't that hard. I got a few photos of the solar panel and made a new userpic. In the light of the day I was able to notice some symbols near the screws on the back.
There are two '+', one marked 'Spare', and two '-'. Using the Multimeter the other night I was only able to detect voltage on one of the '+'. Maybe in full sun it'll work better. I need to get some wire so I can start to hook things up.
Depending on when this thing with Phil is tomorrow, maybe I can get over to Home Depot.
