...these symptoms: "headaches, dizziness, nausea, severe tiredness, brain fog, disorientation and loss of appetite, loss of balance, inability to concentrate, loss of creativity" It's affecting me here in SoCal! Brain fog; good line, that!

Home Generators (or How DTE Energy Ruined My Holidays)

A New Normalcy Ground rod for sub panel? (695 comments)

When I installed my sub panel, code specifically PROHIBITED a ground rod at that location. All grounds are supposed to be tied to the one at the main panel. I read up on the theory (22 years ago) and it made sense, but I can't recite it now.

... but my brother has seen all the associated specialized apparatus for construction, including the autoclaves. All remains unused, as it is a bit too small for the follow-on projects. The accounting ramifications must be stupefying.

Diskeeper Accused of Scientology Indoctrination

A New Normalcy Awright, my hot button: (779 comments)

around the third/fourth grade I began omitting the word 'God' from the (US) Pledge of Allegiance. I felt it had no damn business there, and still do. And I remain a patriot. And support strict interpretation of the Constitution of the United States of America. Now the (off-topic) flamebait: Explain to me the difference between John Ashcroft and the Taliban members. After all, he used a specious constitutional argument to force his religious views against Oregon's right-to-die law. Religious freedom AND states rights; shot to hell.

New York City Street Lights To Go LED

A New Normalcy Re:flicker crashes (303 comments)

I can perceive the taillight flicker when I rapidly turn my head while keeping my eyes stationary in their orbits. And it is a FULL on-off flicker, not a variation in brightness. Under some conditions, I can hear the sample rate of some synthesizers, too.
