Re: AC Brand Recommendations?

We had a Coleman whole house AC unit installed in March 2011, primarily because it was recommended by our HVAC guy. Haven't had a problem with it.

Re: If/how often to clean ducts?

We had the ducts cleaned when we moved into our house five years ago. The previous owners had a large (shedding) dog and my wife is allergic. Since then, we haven't done them. I read enough stuff online to convince me that it wasn't worth the [more]

Re: A visit from "adult social services"

The $500 withdrawal may have been a trigger, if it was an unusual financial transaction for her. Elder abuse (which includes taking advantage of people financially) is a big problem, under-reported because the elderly are either unaware they are [more]

Re: Exploding Floodlights

Any chance it was a kid with a BB gun?

It's always a chance, and my first thought was vandalism. But I think it's unlikely. I know the kids in the neighborhood, and they're either too young or don't seem to be the type. (I know... not [more]

Re: Exploding Floodlights

They're Philips Halogena bulbs. I couldn't find any recalls, but I did see one person (out of 14 reviews) who reported exploding lenses on Amazon.com. The one bulb was burnt out, the other still works.

Exploding Floodlights

A couple of weeks ago, I came out to my shed and found the shattered lens of one of my floodlights all over the driveway. I cleaned up the glass and bought a replacement and all was well. This is one of two in a motion sensing fixture. This morning, [more]

Re: Office 365

Hi,

I finally got a new computer. Running Windows 8.1 and Office 365. The good news is, the macro spreadsheets (.xls) run just fine. The bad news is, the version of TSIMPORT.EXE I have (dated 2002) won't run.

Office 365

Hi, all --

My old laptop died yesterday so I need to get a new one. Question: do the RadiScript macros run on Office 365? A quick Google search indicates that they may not. How about Office 2013?
