I know you guys are mostly into digital technology but anyway for anyone who knows plumbing pretty well, particularly steam radiators, I've got 4 in this apartment I'm in on the 3rd floor. It's a single return system meaning the radiators fill with steam and ideally have a shutoff valve which is steam/heat activated and shuts off after letting air out, then I believe after the radiator cools they open so that air can re-enter to let the condensed water (from the steam) return back down the pipe
Problem is two of my 4 radiators in here have this cap, rather... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
OP here.. I just realized that the "cap" is like a primitive sort of vent. Basically it's like a bolt, picture , with a top piece on it that screws into it as well, and presses this sort of rubber (or some old shit, it's all dirty cant tell) thing more or less against this hole which is in the main part of the bolt like piece. Sooo, that hole was actually blocked with paint, and the inside was dirty. So I got it to the point where I could blow into the hole on the inside end of the bolt, and get air through. just enough, then screwed it back on with the main part pretty firmly in, and the top adjustable piece a little bit out. This should let just enough steam out that it wont matter, but it wont let air come gushing out at 60mph like it was before in bursts.... Which tells me that that particular verical pipe isn't venting right. Basically it's 4 floors and me and my 4th floor neighbor (3rd here) are the only ones occupying this "C" section of the apartment.
Anyhow, this should minimize but allow air exchange, just slow the rate down. Hope there is still a virtually complete loss of the noise, though...pray.
Pics? The knocking comes from the original pipes below the radiator, as the how's ages, the supply pipe moves and gets out of its optimum angle. Why would you take off the cap? Your system will not explode, those caps are there for a reason. You have 2 vents that vent the system for your apartment out...
the 4 pins on the 2.5" drive and the 8 pins on the 3.5" drive are designed to be used with jumpers. They activate settings on the drive and are also used by the OEM for debugging purposes.
If both SATA connectors are attached and Windows is not finding the drive, the logical conclusion is that the drive isn't working.
If you can hear it spin up, then that means the drive is getting enough power. If you hear continuous clicking, then the drive isn't getting enough power and you're probably also getting blue screens in Windows.
>>928443 You connect the sata power cable on the right and the sata data cable next to it. If it doesn't show up then either you are retarded or it's fucked. The bottom drive on your picture has an 8 pin connector on the right, you don't need to worry about that. If the 2.5" has a similar 4 pin connector ignore that too. In the olden days you used to have to tell a hard drive how to behave on the channel but now computers are a little bit smarter they work it out themselves, often incorrectly meaning...

And that's how we like it faggot. If you weren't such a faggot you would understand that each proto method has its own specialty and purpose, and there is no one "right" way to prototype a circuit. It depends on the circuit type, voltages involved, all sorts of shit. Go be a faggot somewhere else.
Hello /diy/ I'm looking to put together a balloons of a word like Banksy's throw up in NY. I can't locate any material other than mylar to make em, and would prefer something that isn't shiny. What do?
>>933398 No issues. In fact it is good that the rats in the sewers get nutrition as much as possible. After all, without pushing as much edible as possible in the swage system the rats and other disgusting vermin might even die! Thank Bob that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
I've seen enough failed drain lines and drainage issues in houses to know you should put as little as possible down your kitchen drain. Its a garbage disposal, but over the years it WILL slowly get clogged and could be avoided if you didn't use it as a trash can.
If its wet organic material like pulp and you're doing it regularly, make a compost bucket and use it on your flowers or garden.
If you're in an apartment and give no fucks, then yeah use it as a receptacle for anything that will fit and drain.
hello /diy/ i got a problem of creativity so i come to you. i need to make a poster with 80-100 cool images like memes and much more... I've started already and i got 40 files, but now i need you anon to get more!
I made my own borax traps, but the little fuckers just laugh at them. I even bought traps from the store which do the exact same shit as borax traps, but that just makes them take a vacation and doesn't eradicate the colony.
I'm on the second floor and I have a cat, so I have no way to find their hive or use anything super toxic. I'm literally throwing my spice rack at them, working my way up the alphabet until I find something they hate.
>>914380 Clothes stand made from an inverted Ikea Frosta stool.
The wood is slightly bent in the middle unfortunately as I used a scrap piece I found in the garage.
I was originally looking for shelf brackets to use for the feet when I came across this idea http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/diy-shelf-brackets-made-from-i-63635 . The stool obviously came with a seat which I ended up using as a base. This helps keeps the stand bottom heavy and also levels out any unevenness in the right angle feet/struts.
Hi I'm looking for any advice or ideas on how to finish this window. In other rooms they're flush with the wall so I just have a plastic trim to cover the wall/ window boundary however due to the tiles this one is set back from the wall and the frame partially hidden by the adjacent wall on the left. Please help me finish the bathroom?
So I'm having best buy install a radio and the led monitor for my car because it also tells me gas mileage and oil life and all that stuff. I'm also going to replace the car speakers but the installation bay said it would be an additional 190$ to the 70$ for the radio and its frame (190 is for parts and labor) for a total of 260$. Would I be better off installing just the speakers myself? Is it difficult or should I just pay best buy
