    Before Christmas, you might have noticed bucket trucks working on our micro cellular antenna system along the side of the roads. Frank Creede also noticed and asked them what they were doing. They were upgrading the poles to allow Verizon to use them. I just checked, and I now get strong...

    PLEA: Anyone recommend home IT consultant?

    Cyprus connection

    If you look at their special RSF Connect web site at they say that half of the zones have been released for home installation, but it doesn't tell you which half! Based on old information, the Cyprus area looks to be one of the last areas to be released, so it may...

    Backup Power

    The bill says I used 6 kWh of energy over that 15 minute period (1/4 of an hour). Energy is defined as power used over time. Power is defined as the amount of work being done at a moment in time. SDGE bills you for energy (kWh) since how much power you’ve used over time is what matters to...

    Do It Yourself drop conduit

    That does sound odd. Is it a permission thing? The neighbor paid for the conduit and thus would have to give you permission to use it? Have you talked to your neighbor about it? I'd have to see the actual location to comment further.

    Imitative Wood Siding

    I asked "With regard to maintenance, is it your contention that wood maintains better for longer than hardboard?" and you didn't answer.

    Imitative Wood Siding

    Imitative Wood Siding

    To be clear, the CDRC is asking for only Hardie Board, not generic hardboard. So complaints against generic hardboard are not applicable. If a homeowner pays for Walnut and gets hardboard, well, what can I say? Clueless person meets crook and bad things happen. As far as matching goes, of...
