    "Healthy eaters" - Your favorite junk food?

    So after years of avoiding McDonalds, a few days ago something in me wanted a Big Mac. Turned out I didn't like it, probably should have sinned with a Whopper instead. The fries were good though. If you consider yourself normally a healthy eater, what junk food do you occasionally break down for?

    Affixing brackets to fiberglass

    I need to attach some metal brackets to fiberglass. I've decided not to drill and use screws due to the danger of the fiberglass cracking and also because it could be hollow. Is there any glue that could be recommended for something like this? Command strips from 3M have been considered and...

    Lubricheck experiences?

    I saw a couple of threads where people had purchased the Lubricheck or it's predecessor. For those who don't know, these are the devices that let you check your TBN at home. What are people's experiences with them? Out of everything measured in a UOA, I am primarily interested in the TBN to...

    When to buy sprinkler parts

    I'm overhauling my sprinkler system. My designs are complete and I know exactly what parts I am buying. The total cost of replacement parts comes to ~$300. But since I am in no rush to change the system now that summer is over (and fingers crossed we will get enough rain here), I'm wondering if...

    Double Oven Repair

    I have a Bosch double oven which has started to act up. Firstly, the top oven, which is used the most, decided to come on by itself after it was used and turned off. After turn off, it spent several minutes (as is normal) running the fan to expel heat, but after that, it started up again. So I...

    Chrome 64 bit - memory issues

    A while ago I saw Chrome had a 64 bit version in beta. I declined to upgrade thinking it best to wait for the official version. I installed it the other day, and for the first time, I began to get memory warnings when I opened lots of tabs. I have 8gb memory and have opened many tabs on the...

    Dealer warranty rant

    Why is it that dealer's make it the customer's problem because they don't like to do warranty work? As I see it, they became dealers and signed a contract with the manufacturer. If they didn't want to do warranty work, they shouldn't have become dealers! Isn't this an "entitlement" mentality?

    Favorite flavors & brands for chips

    I'm going through a bit of a phase with salt and vinegar chips. It's always been my favorite flavor but I recently discovered the Boulder brand using malt vinegar and it's perhaps the best I've had.

    So I'm getting round to servicing our double garage door. Until today, I hadn't realized that under the previous owner whoever installed or serviced it decided to put black grease everywhere. This has turned really sticky. So I need BITOG advice on the following: 1) I need to get this black...
