I bet Home Depot sells those. We have one in our master bath- it warms you a little, but it doesn't do anything about the cold floor. I bet most of the energy goes into heating the ceiling. If you wa

These are made, they are usually called a "wireless bridge". For example, go look up "Linksys WET54G". The only problem is that these are sort of specialty items and cost more than a common router or

Maybe some of those self-drilling-self-tapping screws (with a tip that looks like a drill bit) would work? Or just accept the fact that you will wear out a bunch of drill bits? Doug

It sounds like a well-thought-out tool, but I do not see how it addresses any particular need you have. It definitely does not tell you if a battery is charged or not. Just keep your batteries trickl

It sounds like you might have a short circuit somewhere. Usually the flasher flashes too fast when it is overloaded. And the thing with the indicator lits is suspicous. Unfortunately, short circuits

One other thing I just remembered: You can also get a special epoxy primer, to put under the epoxy floor paint. Maybe if I had realized that before I did the job, my floor would still be un-blistered

The reason it is sometimes possible to pour antifreeze down the drain (once upon a time, maybe) is that a properly-designed sewage treatment plant will decompose it. But I wouldn't put it into a sept
