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.

For clarity -- are you talking about the last two feet of ceiling? Or wall?

Yeah, I thought about caulk, but if the movement is too great it will come undone.

comment Remove power spike when restoring power
Don't change the breakers!!! The breaker is there to stop the apartment from burning down in an over-current scenario. Your wires are likely sized for a 16 A load, and could overheat if you put a bigger breaker in.

comment How can I secure these inadequate/leaning deck supports?
See if you can get some compensation for deck repairs on the purchase price. It might be worth $1000

comment Need advice to prevent runoff water from going into neighbor's yard
It's not about being nice. It's about solving the problem, which is water on a dirt drive. I can spend 1500 stopping the water, or I can spend 1000 on half his driveway.

It may be easier all around to offer to split the cost of paving your neighbours drive.

comment What do the letters mean in sandpaper grading?
The Googles! They do nothing! -- My best guess is that they're manufacturer specific codes regarding backing and abrasive type. I could find no standards other than three different grit standards.

comment Upgrade from outlet/switch combo to GFCI + outlet
Not if the Neutral is up in the ceiling. Then you'd have to run ANOTHER wire. So it only works if Power is to the switch box.

On a second look, it appears only approved for 12v solutions.

As far as I can tell, Flat Wire is only good up to 40 watts. Not enough for a ceiling fan. BUT, if you can find a source of 1800 w (15 amp) wire, I'd be interested.

comment What does breaking the tab on the neutral side do to the outlet as a whole?
In all likelihood, It's simply there so they can use the same part as on the other side.
