Need help with plug connectors - Korkstand
I have a thermostat connected to a gas burner, and it works perfectly. Problem is it's just a mess of wires. I have mounted the thermostat in a plastic housing, but I would prefer to have plugs in the side of the box instead of wires just running through holes. The power is easy, I could just us...

Backlight or inverter? - Korkstand
I've got a friend's laptop that I guess needs either a new backlight or inverter. When it boots up, the BIOS flash screen looks fine, it's bright and the tint looks good.

Revive dead CPU card? - Korkstand
I have an old CPU card (ISA slot, that's how old it is) that won't boot. Doesn't even get to BIOS. The manufacturer of the machine it goes in can't source the boards anymore, and of course I'm not having much luck finding one on my own. There are no obvious problems... no burn marks, no swollen ...

I just did Mint's free credit score thing, and it says I'm in the "excellent" range. It then breaks down some factors that contribute to the score: CC usage, payment history, age of credit, total accounts, credit inquiries, and derogatory marks. The only factor I have a low score on is total account...

Picked up the tickets this year, never used so I can't really comment on how great or not great they are. They are piggybacked, but one seat is row end (shown below) so it's not too bad. Would like to sell the whole season package, but if you just want this weekend's game I can let that go. Face val...
