comment What are the pros and cons of LED lighting for home use?
+1 for suggested types. My concern over LEDs (at least those readily available in the UK) is that give a light just like a Bulgarian chip-shop. Anyone got any UK sources for GU10 LED bulbs with a decent colour temperature?

comment How can I add/alter wiring inside single-brick walls?
(I think most of us here at the moment do have an IT angle, I bet the standard of language goes down when that changes!) And yes, I'm familiar with the way that rebar seems to be a perfect Faraday shield for WiFi signals.

comment How to drain a baseboard radiator system for a repair? How to refill the system?
Is the system "sealed" or "vented"? (A vented system has a tank in the attic, a sealed system is kept under pressure.)

comment What is low VOC paint?
Here in Europe there's a gradual shift away from oil-based high VOC paints on environmental grounds, as the solvents are very persistent and kill wildlife. Generally the durability, coverage etc. is governed by other ingredients rather than the solvent used.

comment How do I remove dried paint from ceramic tiles and the bathtub?
You may also find that proprietary paint wipes do the job. Be really careful, though, especially on that plastic bath: you may find it takes the gloss off the finish, too.
