comment Should I remove old linoleum when replacing a linoleum floor?
I agree - The way I see it, I know exactly what I've done, and that it's quality work. Who knows what the original builder or previous homeowner did that I can't see. I wouldn't want to put in a new floor and find out later there were problems underneath it.

comment What electrical requirements does a garbage disposal have?
@JohnFx: Yeah, we're really careful about what we put down ours. Pretty much only whatever we can't scrape off into the garbage first. Our home inspector told us some of the worst things that people put down garbage disposals and don't even realize they're bad are eggshells.

comment How do I keep my outdoor trash cans from blowing away in the wind?
@Joe: Sorry, I was a bit of a jerk there. I took several classes with my ME major that involved using the Bernoulli effect extensively, and my pride got hurt there.

By really windy do you mean cows flying past in a tornado?

comment How can I drill through a Linoleum floor?
@Joe: Good point on the spade bit - I've never used one before though, so it wasn't the first thing that popped into my head.

Well, I'd say you're the authority on that, then. :)
