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.

Pulling it off isn't much of a problem. Get one of these (i.stack.imgur.com/fdsyU.jpg) and gently pry it off. It's the re-install that will take some time.

You'll probably have to chip it out and re-do it.

comment How do I take a live wire off of a two way switch?
Also, on the breaker panel, I like to put a piece of masking tape on the circuit I've turned off with a big "NO!" written on it. Sufficient for household use.

I think Edwin was referring to the mounting box in the ceiling, not the panel.

comment What material might be behind my old bathroom tile?
1948, either plaster and wood lath, or plaster and Gypsum Lath, which is similar to drywall, in 18" widths, covered in plaster. Seal all doors with plastic, wear a mask and goggles, and don't try to do it neatly. Just go to town on that stuff. (But watch for pipes!)

comment Installing timber fence posts using fence spike
Yes, it's that simple. Use a sacrificial stub of 4x4 in the spike to bang on. The trick is in getting them to go in on a true vertical.

Also, keep in mind that although it might physically fit in your panel, you could still electrically overload it.

Get a vanity with legs, so a kid can slip a small step stool underneath.

comment How many dimmer switches do I need?
This means you'll only be able to dim from one location, and the other switches will simply control the power (on/off).

comment What is the main difference between stopping and skimming when plastering and when to use each
I've never been good enough with a trowel to get away without sanding. But I've seen professionals do it and end up with a perfect finish.

comment Can I stud out a wall without removing the plaster
I have to go with wood anyways. Kitchen Cabinetry is going to hang off off it. So I need wood. Ran the idea past the Inspector who verified that my basement hole was indeed a hole, and could fill it with concrete. He was fine with the idea.
