Mark Your Broken Sprinklers
Tue, 09 Apr 2019 00:39:01 +0000

I have just spent all afternoon fixing micro sprinklers in my backyard. Seems like twenty of them all need replacement. Normally, I turn on the zone for a minute, run around spotting broken ones, try remembering which ones, and replace the ones I remember. Then I repeat many many times until I get them all. Seems to take forever. And I just can't remember them all at once.

I have gotten fed up and thought of a better idea. I have these Sprinkler Spray Guards that I bought from Lowes before. Now I turn on the zone and loop these spray guards around each micro sprinker heads that are broken (see photo below). Then I can fix them allat once. Should have thought of this idea years ago.

The spray guards are meant for full size sprinklers. They won't loop around them for this purpose. But you can still throw the spray guard next to broken full size sprinklers to indicate bad ones.

Nerf Fortnite AR-L SCAR Magazine Mod
Sun, 07 Apr 2019 18:52:30 +0000

After shaving the corners, the magazine inserts into the Recon MKII just fine (shown in the photo below).

The outrageous magazine looks great on the Recon MKII. Making it look almost like a Warhammer 40K Bolter.

Bot Just Sit in Base on Twisted Treeline
Tue, 19 Mar 2019 23:09:56 +0000

It's been a whole year, before we have decided to come back and play TT AI co-op. And today, we found that two of the AI bots got stuck inside the based after 22 minutes. Seems like this problem is still there. Does Riot even think this is a problem?

After seeing this chart (attached below) that I found in the "Quick Gameplay Thoughts: October 10" thread on LOL NA board, I can see why Riot doesn't seem to care about this problem. The play rate for the TT AI co-op has the lowest play rate out of all the modes.

That's unfortunate. I enjoy the diversity of all the different maps and the different game modes. Really surprised that most of the players sticks to Summoner's Rift rather than playing all game modes.

Preventing Asus FX503V Keyboard Backlight From Turning Off
Sun, 10 Mar 2019 08:59:03 +0000

I have an Asus FX305V that I purchased on Amazon Prime Day. It's a great ultra thin gaming laptop and I love using it. It also has a red backlit keyboard that is really handy to use in the dark. The designer for this laptop has made it quite fancy by turning off the keyboard backlight when I stopped using the keyboard and trackpad for a short while. Although it's a nifty feature, I have found that it hinders me in my tasks.

Tonight, as I was reading a book in Kindle, the backlight turned off. I had to move the touchpad to turn the backlight back on, just so I can find the key to flip to the next page.

I really don't see a need to have the backlight automatically turn off when idling. The whole point of the backlight is to allow me to find the keys in the dark. Why turn it off?

Anyone know how I can keep the keyboard backlight on all the time? Is there a setting somewhere that I can switch?

Got onto a team where my team mates knows to build the sky base ramp at the edge of storm. This technique prevented other teams from destroying our sky base. Watch this video to see how we got to the very end of the game with hardly a scratch.

Fortnite: Driftboard Tips
Wed, 20 Feb 2019 08:43:44 +0000

After playing around with the Driftboard in and Driftin' and Catch! game modes, I got some tips for you.

The Driftboard is like other vehicles in the game, there is no fall damage. And you can fly off surfaces. The space bar causes it to jump, while the activating running mode causes it to boost.

It can out fly the storm in these faster game modes, but it's very close. To get out of the storm quickly, you'll have to boost.

Got any Driftboard tips? Let us know.

Fortnite: Love Shot Tips
Fri, 15 Feb 2019 07:06:42 +0000

I played this mode with my girlfriend to complete the "Place Top 15 in Duos with a friend" in the Overtime challenges. I found that it is easy to complete the challenge by landing at the edge of the island. And just slowly traverse the island edge until the number of players dwindle down to 15 players. That guarantees placing top 15.

KERUI Home Security System Review
Fri, 01 Feb 2019 18:16:55 +0000

lack of customer service:
we purchased a full set home alarm system with panel, motion sensors, camera etc, with wifi that sends alerts to your cel phone. It works very well, however, we moved, and have written to both the seller on Ebay and the company at their website Kerui regarding it does not work after we moved because we need the factory reset to start it again. we have not had any helpful response for any customer support or customer service. we now have an entire well-functioning unit that we cannot use in our new place. We do not recommend buying this system unless you want to get something that has no customer support/ customer service to North America. Noted by Ebay customer service. Jan 2019 Edna K

Eight LR932 Button Cells Inside One A23 Battery
Sat, 26 Jan 2019 19:00:54 +0000

Both of these batteries are genuine. The battery industry changed how they made these batteries once mercury was not longer allowed to be used. You can not make a alkaline battery 12V with the chemistry unless you make it out of many cells. Alkaline chemistry only generates 1.5-1.6V max. So you have to use the eight cells to create the battery.
