Re: home improvement turns into science fair projects?

Are there lots of late-night parties in Hickory?

If you were still up doing that I might suggest sequenced approach lights.

I put one of those supplies in my cart to check out on the bench.
Thanks for sharing that.

Re: Things that go beep......

My UPS are all 12V-powered and I have 6 of them.
I have thought about powering them from one of the cars if we had an extended outage and I couldn't run the generator for some reason.

Re: Things that go beep......

I change UPS batteries every 3 to 4 years and keep the good old ones. I try to charge them every couple of months or they'll fail pretty rapidly.

I usually have enough for 48V. I think the last time I used them was to confirm hum was induced rather than PSRR.

Re: They Walk Among Us

Neil Diamond IIRC has attributed the inspiration for "Sweet Caroline" to Caroline Kennedy. When the song was released by him in June 1969 she was 11 years old. I've never quite heard the song the same way since hearing that.
