Many towns don't allow trailers to be parked out on the street. It seems to be able to park on the street it needs to be able to move under its own power. They was probably in violation of town code then. Now if the trailer was parked in the driveway then it would be a HOA issue most likely.

This is what I did in my house. I have a drop ceiling basement so it made it easier. The female-female keystone modules may be the priciest part of it at $10 apiece. (I was buying 50 foot runs of cable from newegg for 10 dollars each). Been going on 5 years with now issues at all.

An the baseless low flow toilet bullshit again. Low flow toilets still save water at the end of the day. Do some math, take in consideration that you only need to flush once with either toilet to get the piss out. How many times do you piss compared to taking a squat? All "major" transactions involve at least 2 flushes unless you like feeling smug.

I hear your song, but I heard it before by the HDD cover band before the SSD members were even born. All hardware is prone to not coming back up after the power was cut (or turned off in the case of a laptop I have), SSD is not special in this. It appears you have heard it, but if not, tune in to the greatest hits channel and you will hear the number 1 song for the past 30 years: "Always have working up to date backups". I'm glad your backups work.

I probably is a typo though given the proximity of "," and "." on the keyboard. It is rare for that notation to appear. Normally if the number is going to be abbreviated though it is 61.6k acres.

I'll give him bonus points if 61.6 acres is how much parking lot space required for number of cars needed.
