  • Is this standard in the industry these days?

    We are selling our house and as usual, the buyer pays for a home inspection. In the middle of the inspection, our real estate agent calls us and asks us to leave the house so that the Buyer's Realtor and the Buyers can walk through the house with the House Inspector and discuss things in private. Is this normal? I've had 4 other houses... show more

Is this normal? I've had 4 other houses and this was not done. (Granted, those houses were sold over 25 years ago...) Our Real estate Agent said it was the way things are done these days and I just need to know if this is standard elsewhere. THANKS!

  • Testing the coil in my LG Dryer?

    I have an LG DLE2512W Dryer, which stopped heating recently. Easy to guess it's the heater coil. New one ordered, installed - BUT there is still no heat! Now the parts place is willing to take the heater coil back, but before I do, I would like to test the OLD coil to see if it is indeed good or bad. I'm fairly competent with an ohm... show more

  • Would this chemical combination be a problem?

    I need to create a home made solution for combating mold. My choice of chemicals all work on mold and cleaning as well as killing bacteria. I've chosen Grapefruit Seed Extract, Soda Ash and Hydrogen Peroxide. My question is about the Hydrogen Peroxide and the Soda Ash, as a combination is there a chemical reaction I should be concerned with?

  • What is this and how do I utilize it?

    I was cleaning out my tools shed and found this tool set left by my brother in law many years past. It's in a flat case and there are no instructions. There appears to be a piece missing below the center round part. Please help me to know what I have, and what it might be used for and maybe how it is used.

  • Who is this artist, and where is he/she from?

    I purchased this water color 2nd hand, but was more interested in the subject rather than the artist. I'd really like to find out more about him/her and even see more of their work.

    I posted a question a week ago about an artist and his work. There were no immediate responses and I was going to check today when I see that the question is deleted - gone... What happened? Are unanswered questions deleted after a week?

Anyone have a legitimate reason for this?

  • Can you help me build a list of fictitious dances invented just for the movie in which they appear?

    As an example, the movie "Thoroughly Modern Millie" had the dance "The Tapioca" invented by one of the characters. I know there are many more.

Lastly, of course, I"m not including movies where a real dance was invented like "The Twist."

I'm concerned in my design whether or not I will need to support the center of the top to take more weight (from snow and ice) The manufacturer says that the lids are made from 28 - 30 gauge steel. If the lid is 21" round and only supported at the edges, what is the weight limit?

  • Is there a way to test my 12V 1A power supply to know if it is a switching or non-switching power supply?

    I need a NON switching power supply for a project but the first power supply i used (from an old router) was a 'switching' power supply. I found another which meets my specs (12Volt 1000 mA) but I would like to know ahead of time if it is switching or non switching. Is there a way to use an ohm meter or voltmeter to know for sure?

I have checked out the video system and everything appears to be working. (it's only SOME pictures, after all) I also downloaded and installed the most current driver, with no change. This might also help. I first noticed this in working on a blog. I uploaded a picture, and used the interface to change the size. Saved the blog and came back to it a coule of days later, and this odd look is what I got. BUT if I change to photo to the original size, the picture is perfectly visible. Change it back to smaller, and bingo, it's like the sample above. It's not jsut the blog which does this, so I'm pretty sure it's my system, but I can't seem to figure out what's doing it. I'm using an HP Optiplex XE3 (yeah, old) and I notice that this only happens with Google Chrome and not with Firefox or IE. Could this be something in an add on or a setting which needs to be changed? Not really familiar with the settings in Chrome, so your input is greatly appreciated.

Every time I make them, my wife (who fashions herself a chef) cautions me to not 'overwork' the biscuits or else they will be bad. I usually mix the ingredients, and then carefully work it into a round ball that I spread on a baking stone and then cut to size. When I've cut out a few, I take the 'leftovers' and rework them into another round and cut some more. Am I really overworking the dough? I've not seen any appreciable difference in any of the biscuits. I'd appreciate a true trained chef's perspective.

I removed the load from the breaker and turned it on, the voltage tester shows full current. It just wont stay on with the load. There is a smaller breaker out at the AC/Heat Unit itself, which (if I understand correctly) should trip BEFORE the one in the house trips, but it is not tripped. Ok, so my question is: Is the breaker bad? (it's a two pole breaker with 30 on each pole)
