• 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?

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

  • 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)

    I'm having a problem with my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee that my mechanic is also not able to fix. Symptoms: Usually, the car will start up and run fine. It has had oil changes every 3000 miles and runs like a champ. Recently, it started starting rather rough. It usually happens on a day when my wife and I have gone to several locations, and the car will idle VERY rough. THEN, when I get the car out on the road, the idle will smooth out. My mechanic has replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, yet the problem still exists. He now says that I need to replace the Catalytic Converter. It appears as if he has opened the exhaust system and examined the converter, even handing me a piece of the baffles from inside it. Frankly, I can't understand how this could be causing the problem and wonder what else might be the issue. At the same time, I'm hoping that some other expert can shed some understanding on how the catalytic converter can cause this issue.
