    Hi Chad, What is silly?

    Bad choice

    I found it at https://www.inspectorsjournal.com/forum ... all%29.jpg
  3. Hi Chris, Yeah I guess I can remember when it was harder to read from the screen. I guess I got use to it after many years. I can definitely understand Mikes dilemma. Hey Phillip, Is there any particular reason you are still on dialup? I was wondering since, it took me all of 8 seconds to download the 273 page Moisture Handbook and 4 hours on a 22MB file no longer sits with me very well. I remember those days. Arrrgh! [:-crazy]
  4. Not sure why you would want to print it out when you can just read it from your computer.
  5. I am in the process of writing my own and will be running it on my own server I built a few weeks ago. For simple web pages you just need to learn HTML and if you want to get fancy with a similar look and feel throughout your site, which will be easy to change, then the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a good way to go. If you are looking to add form processing then that is where it will get a little more tricky. You will need to learn Perl, PHP, ASP, JSP, Java, C++ or another one of the many server pages, scripting or programming languages out there.
  6. I build all my computers but I get the parts from various places. I use pricewatch.com to get low prices available at the time for hardware. If I build a Windows box then I look for an OEM version of the OS other wise if I build a server I usually use Linux Fedora Core which is free.
  7. Hi Bill, Do you just remove the filters and wash them with dish detergent? If not; how do you sanitize them? Also how often do you replace the filters? Does it depend on how you have used them? Thanks
  8. I'm not sure about intermixing dissimilar metals in gas piping, but as I was looking around I found this interesting writeup on using copper for gas lines. http://www.copper.org/applications/fuel ... intro.html This site has a lot of info on using copper for gas supply. http://www.copper.org/applications/fuel ... fig03.html Show proper connections from steel to copper.
  9. Ah, thank you Kevin; I will check it out.
  10. Hi Randy Several sites pop up on a Google search. Here are two; http://www.plumbingstore.com/pipehangers.html http://plumbing.hardwarestore.com/52-34 ... ngers.aspx No; actually I never heard of plastic plumbers tape. Are you referring to Teflon tape? The stuff used on pipe threads? You may be correct on the metal straps. I was more concerned about the pipe being properly supported. [:-magnify
  11. Hello Terence, I am not a member of ASHI at this time, however I do plan on joining. You have my curiosity. What does the nifty Radon check list comprise of; or is that for "ASHI only" eye's?[:-bigeyes Maybe I will need to wait until I join.[:-cry]
  12. Hi Randy, Actually there are hangers designed for PVC. One could also use the plastic or metal strapping to secure the PVC. You are correct; The use of NM cable was done poorly, and with time, may pull loose of the staples that were used to secure it. This is something I would expect from a home owner, but a radon mitigation company?
  13. I was admiring this radon mitigation device as it passes through the attic and almost missed the method of support. romex pipe support 1, romex pipe support 2. I think that'll hold her.[^] To think this was installed by a radon mitigation company that must have run out of strapping.
  14. Isn't the spelling Weimaraner and not Weimeraner[?] Anyhow, John, excellent marketing. I was thinking along the same lines; just without the dogs.[]
