Re: solar switch?

GE makes two versions of this switch - this one dramatically better and costs a bit more.

Re: speaking of passwords

Ted I can't speak for KeyChain, but in the case of 1PW, any separator is part of the password. I would be very surprised in KeyChain operated any differently.

One thing everyone needs keep in mind, KeyChain by default has the same password [more]

Re: 1 Password - other than passwords

Mick wrote don't see anything 1PW would do for me that LastPass doesn't...

That may be true. I used LastPass (both free and paid versions) for years before 1PW. At the time I converted to 1PW, LastPass did not have the ability to [more]

Re: 1 Password - other than passwords

PoorGuy you are not using 1PW the way I use it - clearly. I happen to be on vacation this week in North Carolina. While I have not used all 586 memorized passwords, my wife and I have used dozens and 1PW has not missed one yet.

Not only does [more]

Re: ultrasonic cleaning

If your wires are link mine, they are Tungsten wires - very brittle compared to copper or steel - but much stronger in terms of tensile strength.

Be sure to let the rinse cycle run. Different dishwashing detergents have different chemicals [more]

Re: ultrasonic cleaning

I doubt what you want is feasible. The smaller units you mention function by moving the bottom of the unit, which drives the liquid. Merely placing a transducer inside a larger container would likely not move enough fluid and certainly not at the [more]

Re: Various web pages won't load on Mini

It doesn't seem to be a network issue or an ISP issue because my iPad can load these sites.

I don't believe your conclusion is correct. First you could have the site cached on a second device. Second most major site have different [more]

Re: Gas water heater

There should be a door or panel to enclose the pilot light and burner. If that is off, put it back on. If you never had one, call the people who installed the heater.

You could also just tape some foil over the opening as a plan [more]

Re: 2 Apple IDs under my name

Tuni sounds to me like you are trying to merge Apple IDs -- that is a question you and others have posed many times. It cannot be done.

Re: Master Bath Ideas

Giving specific comments is a bit hard without some idea about budget. We had a bathroom designer, gave her a "Not to be exceeded" budget and fired her when her first proposal came in over budget. She was surprised when we refused her offer [more]
