    Replace battery or not?

    Thanks all. I guess I am just trying to avoid dropping the change if I dont have to, but I guess 6 years is a good run woth an OEM battery. I think I will take it to have it load tested.

    Replace battery or not?

    If the crank is slower, would you consider this more of an indication of a dying battery over the technical checks? So the past 2 weeks the starter has cranked slower than it did previously. Car still starts but I thought I should look into a new battery. Pulled out my owners manual and it...

    Home lighting: Incandescent, CCFL, LED, Halogen?

    I run a mix of cold cathode tubes and LEDs everywhere but the bathroom and kitchen. I am a decent DIYer, so I did the LEDs myself using strips of varying lengths and 12" CCs. A pair of CCs w/ inverter is about $5 and strips of LEDs are almost as cheap. Monthly electric bill runs me less than...

    3,000 mile paranoia. Who has it here?

    Not 3k paranoia, but I do run full syn. and change it every 6k or so. Manual calls for 5k on dino. Im sure I could go longer, but I see it as cheap insurance and I like to do it.

    Mad-COW infection! In California!

    Typical mass-media scare tactics. Unless you eat the brains or the spinal column, its not a concern. The muscle meat is not connected to mad cow. <a href="http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/mad-cow-disease-overview" target="_blank">http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/mad-cow-disease-overview</a>

    need a decent vac. cleaner............

    I paid about $200 for my Oreck and almost 15 years later it still works like a champ. Lightweight, good power (although a tad bit loud) and made in the USA.
