Looking for something to keep my modem, wireless router, Obi, and cordless phone running during a power failure.

Any recommendations?

Tech Talk / Sprint Flex Lease
« on: November 27, 2019, 03:24:58 PM »
I just leased an Iphone 11 from Sprint. It's still in the box, unopened. I just noticed online that you could get a $150 credit on a new lease if you trade in an Iphone 6. I happen to have an Iphone 6 to trade in. I could just return the phone I just leased and then start a new lease together with a trade-in and get the credit, but that's a hassle.

Is there any chance they would just give me the trade-in credit without going through all that?

I know I could just call them, but I'll be on hold for an hour, so I'd rather get some data points first.

If I have a NJ license and I get 11 points within 18 months in NY, will they suspend my driving privileges in NY?

Follow-up question: Can I take defensive driving in NY to avoid suspension?

Thinking of making sliding windows out of plexiglass.

Ideas for tracks?

ETA: Maybe some simple drawer slides?

Sorry, didn't read the whole thread.

Looking to buy or make the cheapest possible 10x20 sukkah.

It's just for 1 year use and then throwing it away basically.

Found this on Amazon for $679 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ILOH9YG/?tag=cl03f-20&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Can I do better?

Also the sukkah is to seat 19 people, does 10x20 sound like the right size?

That looks super flimsy for a 10x20. You might end up throwing it away after 1 day.

Any wood will need to be treated to withstand water.

Any suggestions for this?

Petty similar but typically cheaper and lighter

Does it hold up well in the rain? Do I have to paint it?

Im building a sukkah on my deck. Basically it will be a frame made of 4x4 posts and 2x4 cross beams, with some type of panels fastened to them. 

Looking for ideas for panels. Doesn't need to be structural, just want it to look nice, and not too expensive. Don't want to use canvas or anything like that.

True. For moisture is a little trickier. You can vent into an attic but I'm not super comfortable with that, or run a soffit to outside. Or buy a dehumidifier :),

Are there any dehumidifiers that don't take up too much space and look normal in a bathroom?

No return vents for bathroom or kitchen. You ever walk into a bathroom and ask "who died"? You want that smell throughout the house?  :)
The humid air is terrible for your AC system.

Good point.

I'm making a bathroom with a shower and I would like to put in a ceiling vent, but there's no easy path to the outside of the house. Are there any other options? What would happen if I connected the vent to the AC return duct? Or just straight into the boiler room?
