I don't have the faintest idea of word count, sorry. If you are able to organise a Russian translator that would be awfully nice. Mind you, the actual translator should be if possible, have affinity with the subject. At the same time, I'll applaude every attempt to get things going.
Luckily, another guy has offered help to translate the site into the Russian language. He's living in Saint Petersburg, selling mass heaters. He thinks of himself of having a vested interest in making this technology known to a larger public.
I am very happy with that, he completed the Build section just some days ago and I implemented it. Difficult job, I take one paragraph at a time and feed it to Google Translate so I am certain I am looking at the right text. Same for the headers and captions.
So, in case Russian is your native language here's another chapter to read.
Another article added, about air streams and their behaviour in the batchrocket core. For those who are interested: batchrocket.eu/en/workings#stream It might be that the wording is a bit dull, sorry for that. Terry, my Australian proof reader and corrector can't be contacted at this time.
Edit: Terry is able and willing to do proofreading and correcting so the text of the article could be changed in the next days or week.

As of today, the total of unique visitors of the site exceeded 200,000. Around the same time the total views counted 532,924. It took 5 days more than a year to go from 150,000 to 200,000. That's quicker than the last jump up, largely due to the growing numbers from the southern hemisphere, namely South America.
Nothing about the Double Shoebox Rocket is on the site as yet. I will be 75 years old next month, feeling good so experimenting on the DSR1+ project is my main goal for the time being.

In the first week of May two guys from Southern Brazil asked me whether it would be alright to translate the site into Portugese. I was searching for someone to do just that for two years, so I am very happy about this. The structure for this language is in place, the banner, license information and the Introduction is translated and implemented.
Excellent initiative, Felipe Ewald and Felipe Drago!

Designs chapter is translated into Portugese. It took 6 months to do the work but I am very happy with the progress, nevertheless.
The only other version that's incomplete so far happens to be the Russian translation. Latest progress is from more than 2 years ago. In the light of the ongoing war in Ukraine, I've been in doubt as to whether or not making it inaccessible.
I'm inclined to think Vladimir Putin and his companions won't read it, and at the same time rural Russian people could use it to their advantage. I'd think those people are in a vast majority, so this version will stay where it is.

deadstarsstillburn: Hi there. I was directed this way by folks on the Permies.com website and am hoping I can get some information on how a total newbie can get started designing, siting, building, and not-dying-in-a-horrible-house-fire with a new RMH in a 160-year old home

deadstarsstillburn: The people over there recommended either a 6" batchbox or an 8" J-tube. I don't know what those are but am going to try to figure that out. What I need is a blueprint that I can scale to fit the need for my house. I have something likne 5000 square feet

deadstarsstillburn: but I do not need to heat all of it by any means. probably only need to heat half of that, maybe less.
Oct 21, 2020 6:53:15 GMT -8
deadstarsstillburn: moreover, the house has 3 storeys (large attic) so I assume if I get very efficient heating on the ground floor, that will go a long way toward heating the upstairs as well, no?

dcoyte: I am planning to use a cast iron heat exchanger out of a hydronic boiler set on top of my rocket stove, flue out the top. There will be a pump moving the water through the heat exchanger into an unpressurized 2000 gal tank. Any thoughts?
