I'm the sole developer for a publishing house, doing on-line courses and exams.

We have a web designer, who typically does layouts and courses, but I do anything that involves programming logic.

Also, latex caulk before painting does wonders in hiding nail holes and joins.

The easiest way would be to take one of the others off and take it to the store with you.

comment How to make a height adjustable shelf / desk
@SathishManohar That's the question you should be asking. Present us with the problem you're trying to solve, (adustable height shelf). You're narrowing the scope of potential good answers by limiting the solutions. Who knows? Someone may have already solved this problem in a completely different way.

comment Can I lay laminate flooring over top of existing linoleum?
I see three questions, each dependant on a positive answer to the previous.. - "Can I Lay over top?" If the answer is no, the next two are irrelevant. If yes, then - "Do I need to deal with ridges" becomes active. Again a no dooms the third to irrelevancy. A yes makes the -"How do I deal with ridges" active. This should be broken up into seperate questions.

comment Wiring GU10 Sockets: Cables are of same color - which one should be “live”?
Even an Edison will WORK if wired backwards. But, for safety reasons, you want the live wire on the center piece so you don't accidentally touch the threaded sleeve.

comment Is there a way to unscrew a light bulb that has broken?
@Steven I don't think he's using it to lube the light. He's using it to jam into the broken bulb to get a grip.

Careful! Baking soda is pretty fine stuff. It can clog vacuum filters very quickly. Borrow a shop vac for the job, and finish with your household one.

Not necessarily. If you wired it the way the first diagram shows, the lights will be on when the switch is OPEN (off), and it will short out the circuit, causing the breaker to trip when closed (on).

@user24478 Are you sure the switch was off when you turned the breaker on? It's not always clear.

Look at the first diagram. That would account for this scenario. - I have no faith in "We turned the switch ON" I take it to mean "We flipped the switch"
