Data is the future. Optimization is not our enemy.

comment What is the proper way to dispose of used hydrochloric acid?
@PhilipNgai because effervescence at the top of a solution is less foamy and problematic than effervescence at the bottom of a solution. I know the typical mantra of "acid in"

comment What is the proper way to dispose of used hydrochloric acid?
@PhilipNgai I might typically agree with you, but in an effervescent reaction like this I think you'll get better results by carefully adding the soda.

comment How can I split my rg6 cable runs without losing my signal?
It's worth mentioning that 100 ft of RG6 has 2db loss, where a 2-way splitter has 3.5 db. Using RG11 will reduce the loss do to long runs.

Can you elaborate on what the leftward pipe does? Does that link to another drain or is that a vent?

comment How to connect multiple light fixtures to one switch?
@ArgentoSapiens I disagree. If the question is "how should I accomplish this task", with "should" being the operative word, this user should call an electrician. Perhaps that won't always be the case, but I think based on what I read so far that today it is true.

comment What kinds of dimmers do I need?
+1 This is the answer: to use digital "smart" switches with scenes. Standard resistive dimmers might work but will likely be unsafe. Triac dimmers will not work.
