  1. You're welcome! Managed to find some time to make some speed improvements. Gzip compression, caching and lazy loading images should speed things up a little. I have few more updates coming also that will also add some speed improvements in the next couple days.
  2. The SSL cert expired and there should be a new one applied by morning.
  3. Not being a home inspector I only see it from its SEO value... because it's copied from another site it would likely considered negative and no benefit to TIJ. To use duplicate content safely you would need a conical meta tag on this page pointing back to original content. Google would then pass link juice etc. back to the original page. This post is negative towards our seo and Google doesn't care if the original writer posted it or not, and has no way of telling if it was him or someone just ripped it off and posted it here. Not to mention this isn't a great idea for Kenton either as his original doesn't have a conical either. Larger sites can often rank better with the duplicate content than the originals sites. Conical tags on original content help stop scappers from stealing your content and ranking better than you with it. This was also posted as a topic not a reply to some question... so very lame indeed! It's just two paragraphs tho... and certainly not the first or last to be copied up here. There are probably some changes coming to our posting guidelines directed towards guest posts and link droppers, but this case is already covered in our posting guidelines: https://www.inspectorsjournal.com/guidelines/ The moderators hate censoring anyone and always try and avoid it, however many of us have wasted hundreds of hours deleting spam... it doesn't take much for a spammer or link dropper to get banned here. Simply because they waste our time! Kenton came up to TIJ riding the line... in this and his other recent posts... my advice would be to become an active participant of the community by posting original content, before dropping links and trying to gain a biz advantage. He can also talk to us about advertising costs if he wants to go that way.
  4. Well at least somebody else noticed the false info at our government funded news outlet (Unless you're already infected, masks won't help you.) and they corrected it! Although now factually correct... some of the N95 mask most are recommending only filters inbound air and has a one way valve and a deflector that sends unfiltered exhausted breath downwards in front of user. These types of N95 probably won't help much when it comes to someone that's infected NOT infecting others. Other masks types are probably better at preventing someone infected from infecting others?
  5. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/coronavirus-update-what-you-need-to-know-march-29-1.5513970 This is what they are telling us in Canada... I think the last line is fake news! No mention of HEPA air filters either. What can I do to protect myself? Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Keep them clean. Keep at least two metres away from people who are sick. When outside the home, keep two metres away from other people. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Unless you're already infected, masks won't help you.
  6. As the saying goes... "it's never safe to update" LOL Sorry for the interruption. Michael
  7. There was a problem after the last update on the weekend that caused errors and prevented posting. The errors have been fixed and all should be working as expected.
  8. As we tried to upgrade software some setting from old server took down the site. Sorry for interruption. Michael
  9. We have moved to a new server. Some image files are still being transferred but should be finished in the next 24 hours.
  10. Version 2.0.0


    Furnace/Boiler serial number decoder chart that is used to determine the date of manufacture of furnaces and boilers.
  11. This weekend we moved to new faster server hardware and infrastructure. The name server and IP's had to be updated so the site was down for a while. During the move it looks like a couple posts got left behind on the old server(hard to time this stuff exactly). This also includes anyone else I'm hosting at nitroshock.com. Michael
  12. I am not jumping onto Marc's bandwagon either but lets attack the comments not the commenters. This just drifted off topic. No I'm NOT trying out for moderator... it's an awful job!
  13. I just thought i would point out that the original post was: Is a 1969 home likely to have aluminum wiring in Solon, Ohio? Everyone is welcome to their own opinion but lets try and stay on topic and not drift or hijack threads into other topics that belong in their/your own threads. That being said I admire your humility.
  14. Thanks for all your contributions! Go have fun with the grand kids!
