Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Oh I thought you were goth with black nails. Lol Today I just got fitted with my long-term cast (4-5 weeks). It's fiberglass, so at least it's waterproof and I can shower without covering it. That Ace bandage and splint thing I got out of surgery had more flex in case of swelling. It was getting pr...

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

You could certainly inspect it all yourself at your leisure, and post pics here if you need an opinion. That wire there is fine, it just has its outer clear film sheathing torn for a few centimeters. No big deal. That film just adds a bit of extra heat rating to the conductor, and it's largely inta...

IMG_20191111_135128.jpg When this wire was bent inside the octagon, it was slightly exposed. Not pictured was the broken marrette with the twist wire exposed. I'm not a pro, but apparently neither was this electrician. Every light I go to change (that he/she did) is totally effed in one way or anot...

We are plunging into Fall coolness over here... I just learned the upper half of the state is at peak fall leaves color now! How did that happen?
Leaves dying of cold. So beautiful. So tragic. So relatable.

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

But I sure thought it was weird that an "adult show" had a cartoon intro. ...so the high-numbered antenna channels those shows were on were too fuzzy to watch. ...whatever vintage show was still being syndicated on local channels we could tune in clearly. What mean you by this "adult show" I don't ...

"infraction against us for carbon monoxide" what does that mean??
We got testing done, and even though we have functioning co detectors, the basement fireplace is gas and is the culprit, but didn't set off any alarm. The infraction is just our notice that we have 60 days to fix it.

Shannon is too thorough. Maybe post 90% of the videos and then finish with a plug for the forums in order to see the rest.

Re: I did something with electrical

Got my pseudo handyman (friend's dad) to look at the photos, and from what he's saying, his best guess is that they put this switch into a section of wall that acts as an air return? He also thinks there's a leak from the attic into the air or something, he lost me after that. Are air returns usuall...

I definitely vacuumed it all, but to be honest, I was hoping you guys were infallible in your vast knowledge of everything (a high calling, to be sure). Now I'm concerned... What if this is everywhere?

Dia are you making stuff up to stump us here? Haha, no sir! Hadn't even considered that possibility before... :twisted: It was on an insulated, internal wall. It was a double rocker switch from the bathroom, wired in next to a GFCI. There was the same stuff in the box, but way less packed. Definite...

I did something with electrical

So, I replaced a thing. Then I got curious why the last (seemingly identical) thing wasn't working and needed to be replaced in the first place. So naturally, I broke it open. Is this just accumulated dust? That's not even all of it, it was packed in there!

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Why are the final details of a project so hard to force myself to finish? Once it's almost finished, it's like my brain refuses to acknowledge that I need one more line of caulking, and a tiny spot of touch-up paint. It would take two minutes, but no, apparently I'd rather write this problem out in ...
