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.

I think the cabling in a pre-stressed beam would be on the lower part of the beam, where they can take up tension. It wouldn't make sense to pre-stress the neutral axis.

comment How do I fix a slow draining garbage disposal?
Try putting something chunky down, like an onion or carrot. That should clear the avocado skin. In general, avoid anything fibrous, as it will tend to wrap around and get stuck.

comment What to look for in buying laminate flooring
Most products will have an AC-# rating. This is a European durability rating. Stay away from 1 & 2 altogether. 3&4 are fairly easy to find. 3 would be ok for a bedroom, and 4 for hallways and living rooms. 5 is industrial grade, and you'd use it for high traffic retail/banking areas..

comment What direction should laminate flooring be placed in?
@Keiths This will work on hardwood. Most laminates have end T&G that is incompatible with the edge T&G, making this a non-starter.

comment What are some tips for installing laminate wood flooring?
I've found tapping with a hammer to be rather unnecessary -- Just keep the joints clean. But, if you do need to tap, sacrifice one board by cutting off about 4" of the trailing end, and from this piece, get rid of the leading edge. This piece now becomes your "Persuader". Clip it into the board, and whack away.

It would be nice if someone made a blog post about this type of project -- Something like this: diy.blogoverflow.com/2012/09/…

comment How do I measure the leg positions for a three-legged table with a circular top?
Presumably, one has already found the center in order to cut the table top.

comment What's the best way to remove a wall plug?
You have to repair the wall anyways. A slightly larger hole isn't any more work.
