    East Coasters: Teach me about EZ-Pass

    My Father In Law had the same thing happen. He was going to be travelling up north on and off so he ordered and EZ Pass. It came out of the bag and he got hit for several tolls on the way down I95. He called and they refunded them after a little back and forth.

    where to find info on construction codes & regulations?

    Call the inspections department. They will help you out. They will probably tell you to get a permit but most municipalities will do a stand-alone type of permit that is usually fairly cheap (under $100) and does not require plans to be drawn up (just a description of the work to be done)...

    Night vision questions for everyone - to help re-assure a post lasik surgery patient

    My wife had it done in 1999 and she has some of the symptoms you mentioned, though she says that they are no worse than what she experienced with glasses or contacts. Since she was about 20/400 without correction, she could not see without some form of distortion anyway and would do it again...

    ***Official Halo 2 Discussion Thread***

    This might be obvious to most but I think I saw at least one person asking about it. I finally had a few minutes to read the strategy guide and noticed that it said when you are dual wielding and walk over another weapon, you can either hit X to change it for the weapon in your right hand or...

    Xbox cooling fan dying, anyone know what size it is?

    About every other time I turn my Xbox on, I get the tell tale sound of a fan bearing going. After 15-20 minutes it dimishes and goes away. Anyone else have to replace their fan and know the size before I open it up twice? TIA

    ***Official Halo 2 Discussion Thread***

    In responce to Shawn C, I agree to some extent but I usually try to knock them out to a reasonable level so I don;t take so much damage. At one point, I jumped off a platform and while I was in the air I whacked one in half with a laser sword. Steve, I read at AVS where someone used one...

    Stupid things said on TV

    Actually, most office buildings allow about 12-13 feet from the surface of one floor to the surface of another, so most of these xx stories tall things are wrong anyway.

    Any carpenters / home builders here?

    Well, that goes without saying. I guess I should have said, "no matter what it costs them"

    Any carpenters / home builders here?

    I would definitely call the local building department and talk to the inspector to give him/her a heads up about what to expect before they come out. Also, as I mentioned before, go ahead and send the contractor a letter with delivery confirmation talking about these issues and tell them...

    Question abuot IPod/U2 commercial

    In the commercial for the IPod with U2 singing, the song starts with a count: uno, dos, tres, catorce. Is this an actual U2 song or is it just for the commercial, and if so, why are they counting 1, 2, 3, 14? The first time I heard it I thought maybe they meant 1, 2, 3, 40 since there is a 40...

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    I also noticed a little semi-continuity error. When Charlie was in the confessional, years before the crash, he had tan lines from his taped fingers.

    The Survivor 9: Vanuatu Discussion Thread

    Unfortunately for them, there will only be 3 men on the jury. (Patrick beat me to it ;) ) I don't really like Ami either, but she has (so far anyway) picked a strategy and stuck with it and been able to get others to go along with her. Of course Julie and Twila should think that they...

    Any carpenters / home builders here?

    Even if the wall is not load bearing, bad studs can easily cause the walls and sheetrock work to look bad when done. Make sure you make them understand that you will expect the walls to be straight with good workmanship and if they leave things now that cause problems later, you will expect them...
