Re: Question about old A/C and electric usage

Many of these units are made from materials that quite simply, do not take any sort of "leak repair" with any amount of success. Any aluminium used is usually of a type that will not weld successfully and any steel lines are "rolled" and as soon as one hits it with a brazing torch, the tube splits o...

Re: Computers and Productivity

Depends on the why's and wherefor's.

Many countries still use paper voting slips.

I don't see why you are complaining really.

Re: Question about old A/C and electric usage

Just because it says 21,000 btu on the label does not mean given it is old, that it is efficient.
Probably worn out, huffing and puffing to keep up with the load.

Re: Car Accident, Insurance Coverage/Compensation

Never heard of any car insurance paying out compensation for lost time.
Best of luck with that.

Any whiplash claim would be a third party claim, not car insurance.

A licensed 20years.
I'm sure you are already aware, but I'd make sure that licence you quoted is for a motorcycle or whatever you decide to drive/ride/rent/bum
Also your travel insurance will cover you in the event of any accident. You do have travel insurance....??

Re: Safety: Us vs. Them

Yep, random electrocutions, drownings, zip-line failure deaths are all part of the charm. It's so to exotic and oriental mystique-like to watch people die in such unique and unusual ways. You would have to be one bagful of joy at a party !! Dare I say, get a life. According to all the ex-spurts out...

mmm...I think the same when I see a tree branch stuck in a pothole on the road or a 6 foot drop off on a footpath where you have to think "avoid that". In many ways for me it is part of the attraction of Thailand that keeps me coming back. Not that I care to be racked up because of any of it, rather...

Thai air cutting back in Aus

Last couple of years noticed the Thai Airways fares from Brisbane Bangkok return were $100.00 more than from Sydney. Could not get any real answer from them as to why, considering the route is probably some 600 odd klm less. Going through looking at bookings for this year's trip and cost is up now a...

Re: insulation???

With the frig, the heat from the condensor is the heat of compression plus whatever is extracted from the interior. So basically whatever power comes from the power outlet is converted into heat. Pretty much the same thing with the TV , AND with the whoppers getting around these days, probably more ...

Re: insulation???

I'd be planting a few trees around the outside of the house to cool things down some. Extractor fans in the ceiling space was a good move. I doubt the 25mm of shiny paper would do much though even with the enclosed foam insulation. Found this link which explains the processes etc. in a fairly easy t...

Re: wanted-cable finder

Just be aware there are many brands and just as many do not perform very well. I doubt you will see any plastic piping behind wall panels let alone buried in concrete. I have found that some also do not like fibre cement sheeting (villaboard, hardiflex,versilux etc) and will give weird readings. Usu...

Re: running laptop from a 12 v car battery ?

The little boost converter I referred to has a fairly high efficiency (90-95%) which would be lost to a degree by first driving a dc to ac inverter to 220V AC and then driving the laptop power supply back down again to around the DC18V mark.
Whatever floats your boat........ :D :D

Re: running laptop from a 12 v car battery ?

after lieing idle for 2 years the battery still has 12.1 volts in it with just a trickle charge needed to top up a bit .not enough to start the motor though Assume you are referring to the car battery. This may well be 12.1V BUT this PD will drop rapidly once any load is connected as you have alrea...
