Ack! You're only 6 months along ?? Somehow I thought that you were farther along than that. Silly me, I guess.

My wife's in the same boat.

We just had new flooring done in the kitchen and dining room...with the living room to follow.

In our last house, my wife, who is more the "handyman" than I, did the living room and hallway when we did new flooring.

This time around, we're just under 3 weeks removed from a scheduled C-Section...there was no way she's gonna roll around on the floor, with or without my help.

I'm due July 5th which means I finish 6 months on April 5th.

Egads...I'd comment on being pregnant through the heat of summer, but then I remembered where you live. ;-D

Get a window unit. Speaking of window units... I have a samsung that is really interesting. To install it you take two screws out of the side and the whole innards slide out on a huge tray and there is a very lightweight steel frame you mount and then just slide that tray back in from the inside. Extremely simple... easy to do yourself. Then I realized something yesterday when some neighbors hit the edge of it with a football. Although the ball didn't dent it at all, I realize now something could smash the steel frame and then you couldn't remove that tray that the innards are on, since the back panel on the innards is the cooling fins and the whole thing is only about 1/4" smaller than the frame mount all the way around... so If the frame got bent you couldn't remove the tray, and you HAVE To remove the tray to get to the four screws that you screw down to the window sill. In other words, you're ripping out your window or getting the jaws of life to help you out if your AC gets smashed.

And I thought it was a really good idea.

In this case I'd have to recommend a nice R134a marinade...

FINALLY INSTALLED A DEDICATED, ISOLATED GROUND!!!
Ground was soft so I used a 10$ lowes coupon that expired today, got the 12" err, foot copper grounding rod, clamp and 12 GA wire. Drove the rod right into the ground with very little trouble, all the way. Still have a little interference from the G4 when i scroll and crap, but I probably don't have this totally isolated yet! Even so the interference is MUCH less and no more GFI indicators on my power strips.

You might want to try not scrolling and crapping at the same time, then.

Well, I've been putting this off all morning... I need to just get up off my ass and
start mowing. I'm dressed for the part - I'm wearing my rattiest Levy's, a white t-shirt,
and my permanently green lawn sneakers.

After our great big snow last weekend the grass (strike that) the weeds are already
6 inches tall. Oh Joy! Oh Fun!

sign me~ Mr. Green Jeans

Umm... I just went back and re-read the8088er's post about a "dedicated isolated ground"

Are you grounding your receptacle(s) directly to the rod?

If so, you might experience less interference, but you have also created an electrically dangerous situation involving ground loops. "Isolated ground" in terms of computer power is supposed to take the form of a separate ground conductor running back to the main building ground (as opposed to just grounding to the outlet box and following that back down to the building ground).

i assumed he was talking about the main building ground, not a dedicated ground.
