Re: To do list app

I like OneNote from Microsoft (booooo, I know). It does everything I want it to do, be able to nest lists inside of lists 3 and 4 deep. The iPad app is free...think you need to sign up for a free microsoft-based email to reserve your cloud spot. I [more]

Re: A question on INVERTER air conditioning sizi

It's okay to over-size inverter HVAC some, but you don't want to double it. The one's I've read about do have a minimum capacity, and if that minimum is more than your load requirement you've got the same problem as with an over-sized traditional [more]

Re: A/C Circuit Breaker Tripping

For this I am pretty sure I would need to replace the air handler too, which is working just fine. (knock wood) That would more than double the price. When we replaced it 10 years ago, it was close to $7K for the whole 9 yards.

Re: Wall Mounting TV Electrical

A stud bay is a raceway, but not all wire is raceway-rated. Wire that typically comes with equipment is typically NOT rated for in-wall use. To be rated for in-wall use, the insulation material needs to have lower flame-spread index and lower [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

They'll treat him with kid gloves, spare him the worst tasks, etc., and he won't get anything near a realistic experience of what it's like to do manual labor,

2. Working for family

It's as bad as the boss makes it. If the boss says to treat him with kid gloves, [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14
