@SpeedyPetey You may have misread the paper you cited. They are talking about making the concrete the same potential as bonded equipment near places where cows congregate.

comment What is the best method for carrying a 4x8 by yourself over tough terrain?
There are panel carts, but they are for moving panels across a yard or construction site, not the wilderness. amazonsupply.com/dp/… or this: amazonsupply.com/dp/B0000224PA/ref=pd_sim_0

comment What kind of floor is this?
@tester101, The grain pattern looks like a veneer, like what they put on plywood. Also, the pieces are really tight against each other, like some engineered products, and the edges look too sharp to be solid wood. Could be wrong, so I didn't answer.

comment Microwave not heating - replaced magnetron; now what?
@BMitch At some point I would like to make an argument to change your stance on this. Answers like this are not helpful even from a safety standpoint, as they offer no useful specifics on the dangers. For me, all they do is discourage me from asking questions, because I think all I'm going to get is a bunch of people telling me I shouldn't do what I'm doing. We DIYers have enough people telling us "Don't do that".

comment Microwave not heating - replaced magnetron; now what?
@RedGrittyBrick Respectfully, I don't think that's helpful. The moderators can do what they will, but this is clearly not an answer. The OP is clearly asking how he can fix his microwave. The answer, even with the edits, makes no attempt to further that goal.

comment Microwave not heating - replaced magnetron; now what?
@benrudgers Maybe appropriate on an Internet search, but it is not appropriate for this site per the faq: diy.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-answer: "The answer can be “don’t do that”, but it should also include “try this instead”. Any answer that gets the asker going in the right direction is helpful"

comment How can I insulate a room without tearing down walls?
You likely have a some kind of balloon framing in the kitchen, where the stud cavity in the kitchen goes unobstructed to the unheated attic crawl space. Do you have a drop ceiling or any way to reach the studs at the ceiling of the kitchen, or at the ceiling of the second floor bath (if you have one)?
