I'm an embedded software developer since 2004. Mostly worked with C/C++ with ARM, COldFire, PowerPC and x86 targets, but also with C#, Java, Python and assembly. Currently working with C on ARM.

I have experience with object-orient design, Linux kernel internals and communication (OSI and TCP/IP).

comment How can I create an “invisible” transition between different flooring types?
A suggestion about the illustrations - how about grooving the last laminate or hardwood floor piece so that the transition piece will be flush with them as well?

comment Trying to secure a 100lbs floor mirror so it doesn't tilt over. is it possible to do this without a stud?
If the mirror is resting on the floor and you only want to secure it to the wall to prevent tipping, you don't need great strength. Perhaps even a toggle bolt in the drywall will be enough.

comment Why is there no water pressure after turning main off then back on?
Do you have any filters on the main line? I've had a filter before the heater clog after shutting down the water and turning them back on.

comment How is the alternating current in your home a complete circuit?
Neutral doesn't carry the power to earth. It is connected back to the power source, i.e. the power plant.

comment How can I run Ethernet cabling through concrete walls?
If you have multiple phases you need to bridge across them, which might add to the complexity of the solution.

@alx9r all the construction I've seen uses conduits, but I will amend my answer. Thank you.

comment How can I run Ethernet cabling through concrete walls?
Existing conduits typically terminate at outlets - power, telephone, TV, etc. Tracing where exactly they are going is difficult. Some stud finders can locate power lines, but I'm not sure how reliable they are, or if they can find low power cables.

comment Where can you find out how repetitive the patterns of a particular laminate floor are?
Also can't help you with Quick-Step, but my Krono-Original laminate had 8 different designs. Preparing the boards and layout beforehand will help minimize visible repetitiveness, especially when taking the actual floor visible into account (i.e. not floor covered by furniture).

comment How to hang shelf on 2cm thin wall?
Gluing to paint rarely work for any substantial weight, and a shelf with shoes on it will probably cause the paint to peel, even if the glue does stick to the paint itself. You can try scraping off the paint and glue directly to the wall material. Again, 2 CM of concrete is way to thin and is quite unlikely. I'd suggest verifying the exact material of the wall.

comment what is the woodworking technique used to build this piece?
From the pictures there do not appear to be additional mechanical fasteners. On a properly made joint (i.e. a good fit, without play) the glue is stronger than the wood and there is no need for screws and the like.

comment How to hang shelf on 2cm thin wall?
What are the walls made of? 2 CM thick suggests drywall, but the picture suggests brick or concrete. Both are much thicker than 2 CM and can easily support high weights using a wall plug or screw anchor.

Actually, due to the straight shoulders of the "fingers" this is a finger/box joint, not dovetails.
