  1. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    I spent a bunch of time on three roof yesterday. Several weeks ago I cut the cable and went to an antenna. I bought a chimney mount kit and installed a Clearstream antenna that I bought years sgo. The signal goes into the attic to an amplifier and then to 4 separate drops in the house. I was having issues with pixelization and weak signal. Yesterday I switched to a Yagi antenna with a pre amp at the antenna. I took the amplifier out of the attic and put a 4 way splitter in its place. Problem solved. More stations and now no loss of signal. Picture is amazing.

    Nothing wrong with a good fall. It's the sudden stop that gets you.

    Rip. So sorry for your loss.
  5. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    I can get a little kinky at times. Better?
  6. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    I always run tubing as I don't trust braided hoses.
  7. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    The only supply hoses I have are on the washing machine and I normally shut those off if we're gone for an extended period of time.

    Where's the vent?

    They can do everything through your wrist that they can do through your groin. Well for everyone but me evidently.
  11. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    It did thanks. Sorest spot now is my wrist. They tried 2 different spot there before going in the artery in my groin. It also took 3 tries for an IV which is odd because when I give blood the techs always say that I have great veins. Guess I need to find new health care providers with better aim.

    I had a heart plaque scan and it was REALLY high plus a strong family history of heart issues. Doc wanted to actually see if there were any blockages. Luckily the plaque build up was on the outside of the veins.

    I took a sick day as well. Just had an angiogram. All went well and am waiting for the hole they poked in me to seal up so I can get out of here.
  14. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    It's like using an extension cord in a wall. It might work but I could never bring myself to do it. I've seen braided washing machine hoses leak and these supplies are no different. You don't want a slow leak in your wall and the copper tubing will never let you down.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
  16. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    You're fridge supply is too small for this. Use 3/8" tubing. There's no need to use flare fittings like gas pipe. Compression will never leak and is easier to assemble. Slide the nut on the tube, slide the Ferrell on, coat the Ferrell with pipe dope, slide the tubing into the stop until it bottoms out and tighten everything up. Use a back up wrench on the shut off valve when you tighten the nut. I would never use any hose, braided or otherwise in a wall. I believe it's against code here but I haven't had a code book out in years. The braided line would also be hell to replace if you ever had an issue down the road.
  17. DSP options for your Pro Klipsch Audio

    Been a while but I think it was a Panaflow. Just look for a 24v fan with a low dB rating. Also be sure it's an 80mm fan and you orient it correctly. Here's a small list but there are others. Delta AUB0824L * Delta AFB0824L * Panaflo (Panasonic) FBA08A24L * Papst TYP8414L * SanyoDenki 109RO824H402

    Great Scott!
  19. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    He'd have to use a slip t and his cut couldn't deform the pipe at all. You have to be careful when you sweat them in that the t doesn't slide down the pipe. You also have to be sure they're centered on the cut as there's no notches to let you know if it's in the right spot or not. The pipe won't bend enough without kinking to get a conventional t in there.

    Dear commode, please bless this poop that you are about to receive.....................................
  21. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Good for you. I joined several years ago to keep tabs on my kids. I've yet to post. It could flame out as far as I'm concerned and I'd be fine with it.
  22. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    You have no idea
  23. Gotta Look at Your Phone in 5:00 Traffic?

    I would think typing text would be worse. They're both bad.
  24. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    How often do you anticipate having to shut the water off?
  25. Plumbing question (1/2" copper)

    Yes and no. Do everything above but do NOT use braided hose. Use solid 3/8" copper tubing with compression fittings. You can buy a cheap coil spring type bender to help you avoid kinks.
