    Digital Camera Recommendations

    I cleaned the sensor again on that Lumix and now those spots are gone. I have no idea if the camera will complete its next trip without developing the spots again but my wife loves the camera so I hope it works for her. Need a purse friendly high zoom, so DSLR is out of question. Even a...

    Bathroom exhaust fan broken

    unseasoned home buyers (aka first time buyer or moving up from a condominium) gets seduced by bay windows and 2-story foyers very easily.

    Bathroom exhaust fan broken

    Wow, great! even more incentive to NOT get on ladder now :) Expensive HVAC bills and unusable square feet of space (aka carpeted area) are couple more reasons to hate high ceiling. Yes high ceilings look nice and make the house look spacious but it is NOT worth it

    Is there any harm in having double the CFM of the original exhaust? Or the panties will get sucked up in exhaust? :-)

    The ghosts of Lake Mead

    I made a flippant comment regarding water conservation in support of somebody saying earth's water is NOT depleting "it can't go to space!" Now I am not so sure. Does all of the evaporated water comes back to earth or some does lose to space? But I have to first decide if I am going to worry...

    That is why I never worry about recycling or conserving water; nature does it for us (I am kidding) No seriously, earth will be here for billion years more after human life goes extinct.

    Digital Camera Recommendations

    I want to bump this. Looks like manufacturers are not even attempting to make them any more. I have been looking to get a pocket travel camera with high zoom aka typical Panasonic Lumix but it seems like the last year was 2017 when they stopped making any more. I opened mine once and removed...

    Electric Cadillac - Looks Nice

    GM has not been a paragon of virtue (but then no company is!) but why so much hate? It could be cold day in hell before I personally might be able to purchase domestic branded vehicle but I still have no problem giving credit where it is due. At least for this vehicle, I see that GM has done...

    Bathroom exhaust fan broken

    Bearing started making noise couple days ago and today noise was very loud and now it no longer spins and just hums.

    Bathroom exhaust fan broken

    Motor started making weird noise and in a day or two it became worse and now it is fully jammed. It is either Nutone or Braun (may be they are same now?) The other bathrooms have fan+light combo, so this one is little different. The cathedral ceiling is about 16 feet but still higher than my...

    The ghosts of Lake Mead

    The same video also showed that Las Vegas in itself is a model city when it comes to water conservation. That was hard to believe but the data was there.

    The ghosts of Lake Mead

    One of the video I recently watched said that when the dam was built, the calculations done using the tree ring data was overly optimistic. It was NOT wrong but as it turned out, the prior data they used happened to be the best 5 year period in 600 years! To put it differently, the assumption...

    Electric Cadillac - Looks Nice

    60K? I thought I heard 51K For the price, it will sell like hotcake and it should. As a Tesla owner, if I were in the market for a similar vehicle, this one would be on the top of the list. Most others in that price bracket would be around 200 miles except another Tesla.

    Bathroom exhaust fan broken

    So you ask what is the big deal? Replace it! Here is the big deal! It is about 20 feet high from the floor! And I am scared of heights. I would see what can be done from the attic but will need to wait until Fall season to even think about going there! Looking from bottom, it does look...
