Re: LBYM photo restoration

$40? I'll do it for half that. ;)

It ain't exactly rocket science. Any photography hobbyist with a little experience, a copy of photoshop, and some free time could do it.

Color correction is actually very easy to do (i.e. faded [more]

Re: Ice maker problem--leak (long)

I don't know how to make it fill on command...but engineering is my discipline, so I get paid to solve problems for a living.

Let's approach the problem from the other angle. If you can't force it to happen when you want, why not ensure you [more]

As long as they keep putting Beckett in the black cowgirl outfit, I'll keep tuning in. ;)

Re: Power windows

And please do this before you start opening up the door panel for the window that doesn't work.

I made this exact mistake a couple of weeks ago. DW came home in the S2000 with the convertible top and windows down, and the passenger [more]

Re: Dumb Wow question

I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have never played WoW. And I've been a big fan of many Blizzard games over the years.

Re: car salesmen

Think of it this way...when you buy or sell a stock, you don't agonize over whether it's up or down 25¢ at the exact moment of the transaction.

Well, much the same, I don't agonize over a few (several?) hundred dollars when buying a [more]

Re: The Walking Dead - 11/2/14

Ooh, I like the idea that she's faking it to infiltrate the hospital.

I thought the episode was a little dull. Much more interested in what's going on with the others.

Re: LED bulbs for can lights

The guys at HD said that the bulbs have to be specifically rated for ceiling fans due to vibrations... Anyone know if that is BS?

This is true, but only for incandescent bulbs. Think about it - they use very thin filaments that are [more]

Re: Vinyl Plank Flooring

To be clear, the Harmonics product that I saw at Costco is a wood laminate product, not a resilient vinyl plank. If the OP is worried about water, I would not recommend a wood laminate.

Re: Owners report - Mini Cooper S

I test drove the Mini when they came out several years ago. One of the weirdest things to me was the center mounted speedometer. Just could not get past that oddity. Fun little cars though.

I vaguely recall reading an article in one of the [more]

Re: cash accumulation fund for use as e-fund?

You need to ask a lot more questions. Sure, 3% guaranteed returns sounds great. So, what's the catch? My bank sure as heck isn't offering 3%. I don't think the fund is doing it out of the goodness of their hearts, either. There's money in it for them [more]

Re: pot-filler

Except for the pipe sweating I could do it myself

Sweating copper is actually pretty easy after doing a couple of test fittings. I had seen it done, but never attempted it myself until a few years ago in my first bathroom remodel. [more]

Re: pot-filler

I've also had good experience with Danze. I've installed 3 showers and 4 lavatory sinks using their stuff. It's priced reasonably, it looks good, and works great. I have had a couple of QC/warranty issues (pre-installation), and they were awesome [more]

Re: oil change and checkout at Honda dealer

Brake fluid would be the most urgent. A low brake fluid warning is worrisome, as it may indicate you're losing fluid somewhere. What's included in that service - new fluid and a flush? I'd first want to visually inspect for any signs of leaking fluid [more]

Re: Raising Credit Score From Zero to 789, in 26

Just like someone training to run and finish a marathon. It is a personal goal that is essentially meaningless to anyone but the achiever.

That's pretty dang insulting to marathoners. I've never done one, but I'm seriously impressed [more]

Re: Sleepy Hollow 101314

I actually thought this was a pretty good Monster-of-the-Week episode. Better than that heavy handed 4-horsemen over-arching mythology.

Re: Poll: Sunday Nite Showdown!!!

Zombie stories aren't about the zombies, but about the survivors. What they're willing to do to survive. In most zombie stories, the zombies are nothing more than the iceberg that struck the Titanic. The story isn't about the iceberg. It's a rare [more]

Re: Poll: Which running app do you use

I don't know if you specifically mean a smartphone app, or just tracking software in general.

I use Garmin Connect. Simple automatic uploading from my watch.
