What type of monks was that? by marvin (4.00 / 1) #1 Thu May 01, 2008 at 12:54:23 PM EST
I'm familiar with Orthodox, Anglican, Catholic, and Buddhist monks.

Never heard of Chip Monks, though. That's a new one for me. Are they from some religion that is popular with kids these days? And is Alvin their prophet, or what?

Pardon? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu May 01, 2008 at 01:20:20 PM EST

turn off the house mains by houser2112 (4.00 / 1) #5 Fri May 02, 2008 at 03:15:19 AM EST
You had to turn off the power to the whole house just to change a light?  Don't you have circuit breakers to cut power to a portion of the house at a time?

Yeah, but I don't know all my breaker mappings by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri May 02, 2008 at 04:03:42 AM EST
I will though, I bought a circuit tracker at Lowes.

There's a device for that? by houser2112 (2.00 / 0) #7 Mon May 05, 2008 at 02:36:21 AM EST
I made my map the hard way.  When I bought the house, all of the outlets were two-prong outlets, with the ground wire floating inside the box.  This obviously wouldn't do, so I replaced all the outlets before moving in.

Sure do by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon May 05, 2008 at 03:56:02 AM EST
right here, it sends some sort of signal along the wire to a receiver plugged into the outlet (or light socket, or test leads), which comes back and lets you know when you've found the correct breaker.
