    Yes. I reused old routers as access points(AP)in the past. IMO, it's not worth the money saved. Modern APs of the same brand communicate with one another, often optimize the bands they use, and...

    Just a geeky fine point:
    Unlicensed radio bands like WiFi 2.4 and 5 Ghz have transmission power limits. It's a highly technical discussion and it's something that consumers really don't need to know...

    I started with an on-line "barn" plan when I designed my shop but wanted to have it modified in a significant way; it was 40'x35'. My builder recommended a local engineer, who I used. His approach...

    I found this list online. It's not comprehensive. For example, my Fender Strat Elite has a compound radius and my Collings I-35 has a 12" radius. The 'playability' of the Collings is exceptional. If...

    You don't need to have a compound radius. Many, if not most, guitars have a simple radius.

    Your not being a cynic, it's going to happen. In an open market, the domestic producer is already producing the total amount of product that he can at the price he can fetch. The foreign competitor...

    I'm not the OP and don't want to highjack the thread but some of the issues are the same; perhaps the scale is greater.

    I disagree. Modern gas ovens with electric igniters have much less hysteresis than electric ovens. Gas burners heat up faster and stop generating heat almost instantly once the burner is off. ...
