  1. thank you regular guy. I don’t even know why I am stressing about it. With my luck once it’s installed I’m sure we don’t lose power for a decade.
  2. These were great explanations. I have a very technical question: is a CIRCUIT shed or is just the appliance shed? So I had to pick an AC to shed and yes like you said we would need to alter living conditions for the short term. That’s easy. But what if I wanted to “switch” which AC is the shed. Is it easy to switch? Is that switch done in the panel? Or is it a wire that runs to the appliance?
  3. This would be a Cummins standby Nat gas whole house generator. Every circuit “would work normal and one AC would load shed if it would cause an overload”
  4. Man. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here. Time flies during lockdown. So I’m told because of small diameter gas lines that I can’t get a generator that can power the whole house. But alas he says you can get a smaller generator that load sheds. It was an extremely confusing conversation. We boiled it down that one of my 3 ACs would be on the load shed. But there was also some talk about like load A. And then load B. I’m totally confused. Is this all determined at the panel? Or at the generator? What I think is this: The generator goes on. I run my house normal. If too many ACs turn on then one “sheds”? Means it turns itself off? does it turn itself off or does it just not turn on? I’m totally confused. Then I have to pick which AC. Do they “shed” it at the panel or at the cindensor itself? What if later I want to switch what device is “shed”? Is that hard? Arrgh was like talking Latin to someone.
  5. Where can I find a track that has go karts for kids as small as 5? My kid has maxed out his power wheels that I’ve upgraded to 18 volt. It goes about 15 mph. The 25 volt Razor does not have an adjustable seat. I want to get him on go karts now. All the places I’ve called says 5 years old is too young. for the rentals. I was told there is a place in wall called mini outlaws or something but there is no phone number for them.
  6. Blknracer that’s what I’m hoping my situation will be. Just barely warm enough to keep it running. can anybody answer the question about if it did auto shut down, Would it start up on its own when it’s safe? Or does it stay off until a manual replug the outlet?
  7. put a fridge/freezer in the garage this spring. as I understand it at some point of cold (34 degrees?) the whole thing will shut down and you jeopardize the food in the freezer section will melt. I'm looking for strategy/experiences with this. yes I know there are heater kits. questions: If it shuts down will it start back up automatically when its safe? are you guys okay with that or do you just plug/unplug on your own when you know its gonna get very very cold? Or is the best option to just clear out the freezer when you know its possibly gonna shut down? I would only have to clear out the freezer part right? because refrigerator items wont "melt" if the fridge shuts down because of cold. I'm interested in hearing your experiences. thanks. Oh.. the garage is attached garage.. I've never actually checked the temp on coldest days of winters but obviously I will now. FWIW its mostly "above freezing" in the garage because anytime I bring the car in the ice melts off the car.
  8. This has probably come up before. Just link if it has please. Man time really does fly. I cannot believe it but I think it’s gonna be 3 years. Jesus is that possible? As soon as the kid got to 2 and became “needy” all the free time just disappears.. poof. I had a good reason to take the first year off. The kid. Then the second year excuse was I was gonna wait for the GFH range to to completed for members only area. Now I can’t believe Another year is gonna go by. So interesting to note the finger print vault for the HG battery lasted a year when I opened it to ditch the 15s. I just replaced it. But the LG vault I haven’t even attempted in probably 2 years. Is it just like riding a bike? Yeah my eyes are probably worse. Has anybody here taken off an extended period of time? I think I was a pretty darn good shooter. Bunch of training and I even used to hit some steel on Sunday nights but man I cannot believe that was almost 3 years ago. PS. And what’s crazy is I still paid the dues on GFH and NJ Trap the entire time.
  9. Update. The $9 tester cane today. The Ethernet port in the wall is fine. It appears that maybe the port from the SWITCH I was using is bad!! Mother f*cker. Stay tuned. But at least this tester is making sure my CABLES are functioning. So now my issues are signal/switches. Thank you all for the help !!
  10. Okay great I’m gonna get one of the above. Thanks! yes Scorpio I have tried another device. I tried my network Access Point dish.
  11. Sniper. I guess I didn’t think of that tester as what would work. So I would need two cables that I know work and then plug one end of the tester into the bedroom port. Then I go into the basement patch panel and take another cable that I know works and then keep trying different ports until it lights up ? i thought with these cheap testers you press a button and it’s goes green down the tree for each copper wire. And I couldn’t use that I can’t be in two places at once. Do any others work that I can plug one in to the room and then walk to the other room and see if signal comes through ? thank you for your help.
  12. I'm frustrated with why a network signal is not coming through an Ethernet port in my home wired network. My router is in the basement and I was told every room has an Ethernet line to the "manifold thing" in the basement next to the router. I have had much success plugging a desktop PC into the wall Ethernet in one bedroom. I plugged my Sonos mesh router into another bedroom wall Ethernet port and it works. Now I'm trying to set up another desktop PC into another wall Ethernet and its not getting the signal. Now, the issue here I have like 13 inputs on that "manifold" thing in the basement. And the guy didn't label which ports go up to each room. I've literally gone up and down the stairs 50 times plugging and unplugging to try to see why this one room wont get an Ethernet signal. So I'm trying to think of a way that I can originate a signal FROM the room down to the basement and then I could just easily plug in and out the various ports until I find the HOT one that is receiving the signal from that room. Is an Ethernet transmitter tester thing really like hundreds of dollars? thanks for you ideas.

    If you think medium of exchange is the primary purpose of “money” you got a lot to read up on history wise. And I say that not as an insult. The perfect money is 1. Store of value. 2. Unit of account. 3. Medium of exchange. It’s impossible to be all 3 but What the hell good is buying a hot dog if the purchasing power is declining? you can store your assets in money that buys hot dogs I’ll take money that is not inflatable or censorable Oh, I forgot to say the ponzi money

  15. Thanks guys. Totally didn’t think of the firewall issue. If I’m gonna spend a penny on a new router or antennae I might as well just buy the Boost. My WiFi is exceptional in the house because of the Unifi model QA UAP LR its just that the Sonos Play 1 ignores the Unifi !! Even if it’s 12 inches away. I am pushing 150 MPs next to the Unifi and the Sonos can’t find it. (Online someone said the Unfi defaults to 5g and you have to take it down to 2.4. I’m not gonna do that. Regarhung the idea about putting the router in the office and then Cat5 back to the basement I only have one Cat5 to each room. Screw it im just gonna buy the Boost. I think it’s bullshit that Sonos won’t commect good to some mesh hardware. But apparently what i read is that tech is going the way of all products having their own mesh. It’s actyaullg better for all the devices or so they say.
