Wireless Door/Window Sensor battery life: On those door/window openings that get opened/closed the least, I'm getting about 10 months battery life. On those openings that get used daily, about 3 months battery life.

New Base for the Aloha Breeze 84001 Tower Fan with Remote Control
Sat, 22 Jun 2019 16:34:53 +0000

I have an Aloha Breeze 32" Tower Fan. Model # 87120 (87001) Serial # 004630 I haven't used the fan in awhile and when I went to use it I can't find the screws that attach the base to the bottom of the fan. If you could tell me where I need to go or what I need t to get the screws I would greatly appreciate it.

Wayne Dalton idrive Troubleshooting Tip #1 - Check the Fuse
Sat, 01 Jun 2019 04:54:49 +0000

I know this conversation is a few years old but I have some more information regarding the 2-beep problem. While 2 beeps does indicate a calibration/install problem, it doesn't necessarily mean you just need to run calibration. My unit started having the problem after after the door got jammed and unbalanced. After getting it fixed the opener wouldn't work. It would beep twice and either move an inch or do nothing at all. I was convinced the motor was not burned so I opened the covers and evaluated all the moving parts. In the end I learned that the plastic threaded shaft under the left cover moves when the torsion bar spins. I noticed my carrier was all the way to the right. It appeared to me that it was trying to travel to the right more but it ran out of space. I loosened the gears rolled the shaft until the mechanism was all the way to the left. Tightened the gears again and ran the install routine. Viola! That did the trick. It was beeping twice because it couldn't calibrate. I attached a picture of the mechanism I am talking about. The black carrier needs to be on the left with the door down. I hope this will help someone else save their Torquedrive. Mine is 13 years old and working great.

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.

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?

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.
