  • Is there a light switch that can control more than 1 set of lights?

    I've seen switches that do what I'm looking for for dc lights or even table lamps that have multiple bulbs but I'm looking for a single light switch that can turn one set of lights on or the other set of lights on or both sets of lights on in a living room.

  • Is there a way to transfer to a new windows 10 machine and keep everything.?

    I've been working on computers for a long time as far as I am aware there isn't a way to transfer literally everything from files to cache and cookies to a new computer. I haven't done much research on windows 10 on the matter before 10 I know there isn't any clean way to do it. I was wondering if anyone has come across a migration tool that can transfer everything to a new computer that doesn't involve cloning, windows will have a fit if I clone it to a new PC and I'm not sure how well it would handle all of the driver changes likely be a mess and not run very well.

  • Where can I buy bulk windows 98 laptops.?

    I'm currently looking for places to get 6 to 10 identically configured windows 98 laptops. When I was in college a bunch of my friends would drag our desktop pc's to a friends and have a lan party and play games all night, I'd like to do it again. I figure if I used laptops with a monitor and keyboard/mouse I could save on space when put away.

  • Should I use lag bolts or wood screws?

    I'm redoing my house due to many issues including plumbing. When I took out the ceiling below the upstairs bathroom I discovered they took out massive chunks of the floor joists so I need to reinforce them. I'm going to drop the ceiling a little so I can run plumbing correctly. Should I use lag bolts to secure the reinforcement beams to the old ones or can I use deck screws?

  • How do I fix the lines from my oki c5800 printer?

    I have recently developed lines when I print with my oki c5800 which stems from missing cyan.  I have tried cleaning out the printer no dust on the drums or anywhere else I can see, drums looks normal replaced the toner cartridge since it was leaking anyways.  Not sure what I'm missing that would be causing the missing cyan lines.  If anyone knows the oki printer and can guide me to what I'm missing I would appreciate it.

  • Anyone with nerve pain from a back injury know of a different medication than Gabapentin or lyrica without the weight gain.?

    I've been on both, and gained 50 -60 lbs since starting on them, was wondering if anyone has had any luck with any other medication for the nerve issues and either hasn't caused weight gain or was able to go back to pre Gabapentin or lyrica weight. I'll ask the doctor about any suggestions I get next time I see her.

  • Cat urine detection?

    I was wondering if anyone has come up with a powder or something that can be put in the carpet that changes color when a cat pees on it.  I was thinking something like the chemical pools use to catch people who pee in the pool?

  • At what point have I unsulated a wall enough where I start to get less heat loss.?

    Maybe someone can tell me, I have an old house I've got torn down to the studs in spots. As I insulate I have been wondering at what point does my insulation and heat loss start to balance so further insulation starts to reduce heat loss. I'm sure in the beginning the heat loss over the area of uninsulated wall is such that even though I add insulation the amount of heat loss hasn't changed, I'm curious at what point does it start to change. I might be over thinking it or I might be wrong but I'd appreciate it if someone with more physics and math knowledge than I have could explain it.

  • Where can I get examples of inspiration boards and exactly how to make them?

    I am a realist borderline pessimist by nature. In business class due in a week and a half 2 weeks I have to make an inspiration board to turn in, it has a pretty heavy weight to it.  Unfortunately my teacher sees an inspiration board as a positive thing and that is what she wants.  So I need to figure out how to put together a steaming pile of lies that will get a half way decent grade.  To me inspiration comes from poverty, crippling debt, the bad choices I made earlier in life, the pain I feel everyday due to a messed up back and the accompanying hate I have for the pain, and not wanting to loose my house because of back taxes.  For me inspiration comes from not wanting to continue my life of struggle.  It isn't enough to put some happy stuff on a board and call it inspiration there is also a presentation so I need to beable to spew forth excrement even it it means I am unable to be who I am for the sake of the grade, I am not a person who sugar coats or puts things in a positive light so this isn't something that I am familiar with or how to make it.  Any help would be appreciated.

  • How much wet and dry should I feed my cat.?

    I am putting my cat on a diet she is a pig and currently weighs about 20 lbs and can't properly clean herself and has trouble jumping onto things that are only 2ft high, I can find charts on how to feed her on just wet or just dry food but I give her 1 3oz can of wet food in the morning but I'm not sure how much dry to give her in the afternoon so that she will loose weight safely but I'm not starving her even if she might think I am. Plus any charts I find are for regular feeding not diet feeding. Thank You

  • What would be a purpose of putting tar paper under the floor?

    I am currently remodeling my house it is a very old house from 1880 I have seen all manner of questionable and dangerous things, but this one is puzzling. Why would someone put tar paper over the wood slate floor and then put fiber board over that to attach vinyl tile to? I get everything but the tar paper I have no idea why they would have done it.

  • If I were to rent an apartment to someone who is on welfare and they wreck the place can I charge welfare for the damages?

    One of the things I have been working towards is buying a duplex for extra income and retirement, my thing has always been I wouldn't rent to anyone on welfare because by in large they are a lot rougher on a place they aren't paying for than anyone else, I've seen it time and time again, However NY passed a law saying you can't discriminate based on income, does that mean If I get a place to rent and I'm forced to rent to someone on welfare and they destroy the place that I'm sol or is there recourse to go after welfare for the amount above the security deposit? I feel like I may not want to go ahead with the rental plan If I'm forced to rent to someone who is going to wreck the place and there is no way to recover damages. Anyone have any idea on it.

  • Do I have a faulty corroborator or does it just need adjusting?

    I'm trying to get a snow blower running that was given to me, After replacing the spark plug and sanding the spark plug wire connector they were both rusted quite a bit and I'm now getting spark. Still not being able to get it to fire I tried rebuilding the carb but it still wasn't firing, so I bought a carb off amazon I know they aren't the best quality but it wasn't 200 bucks. With that on I have gotten it to fire a few times but not running which is progress but I'm getting gas out of the carb. Does it just need adjusting or do I have a faulty carb?
