re: Simple diode question in a circuit - LSUtigerME
Why not just run your 12v switched directly to the camera? This allows you to control the camera with the switch. Then simply add the relay to your reverse light circuit, and power the camera from there in addition to through the switch....

re: How to get rid of DRM on music? - LSUtigerME
There was a program I used a few years ago that scrubbed my entire library of anyDRM files. It only stripped the protection and didn't re encode the file. It's been a few years, and even then it wasn't fully supported anymore (I had to backdate my iTunes library for it to work)....

re: Anybody else get annoyed with the Apple fingerprint sensor? - LSUtigerME
Never had a problem with mine (6). My wife's is much faster (6S+), but the 6 is still very accurate. Try rescanning your finger, and don't be ridiculous when you scan the edges/other angles....

re: Internet Provider Help - LSUtigerME
I'm in a similar situation. Bought some property in a semi-rural area, and has no internet service available. My friends who bought in the same area think it I'm ovverreacting to the lack of service, but it's a pretty big freakin deal. It's a major highway, so we're trying to convince U-verse to ...

re: quick cost check - paid $70 to replace my wife's 5s screen. - LSUtigerME
That sounds about right at $70 or so. I think a 5/5s was around $90 when I had my 6 screen replaced about 4 months ago (which was $130)....

re: Best Free or Low Cost Excel Training - LSUtigerME
If you understand the advanced basic features, such as formulas, conditional formatting, arrays and ranges, etc. I wouldn't suggest a formal/corporate type class. YouTube is great, but just plain ole Google works great as well. The key is needing a project. Start a project you want or are inte...

re: Conditional drop down in Excel with only 2 column datasource - LSUtigerME
Can you use a macro with On_Change that updated the 2nd field based on the selection in the first? Not sure if you want to incorporate a macro worksheet, but it would make it possible....

re: Best program for ripping dvd's/blurays? - LSUtigerME
I compress my Blurays down to about 4GB. The picture quality is still very good, but I lose the full Bluray HD audio. It's is still DDS, just not the full Bluray HD audio (I don't recall exact format names). Overall I'm pleased, and it's a great balance. To add to the well described lengthy post...

re: Best program for ripping dvd's/blurays? - LSUtigerME
Handbrake works great for the ripping and converting a file. However, as mentioned you may need the file to break the DRM, which isn't a big deal. But, it doesnt work for Bluray Discs. For ripping Bluray, I use MakeMKV. It will rip the disc to an MKV file, then I convert it with Handbrake to com...

re: How to mount TV and hide the wires W/ Pics, Update in OP - LSUtigerME
That area will be hollow. Just drill a hole in each location, and then fish the wires through/down using fish tape or some other rod with a hook. When we built our house, the contractor installed a piece of PVC pipe from behind the TV down to the cabinet to run wires through....

re: What's the most advantageous golf shot to be better at? - LSUtigerME
Short game. Chipping, putting, wedges. Ever play with some old dude who drives it 200 yds, but puts it dead center every shot then 2 putts? Everybody likes to think driver, but bad golfers typically aren't good with it. Put it back in the bag. If you're not hitting GIR, why does it matter if you...

re: Painting calipers on a truck - LSUtigerME
If you don't want to remove them, G-2 makes a very nice caliper painting kit. It comes in s few colors, and uses a brush on system. You just mask off the areas you don't want painted (I use a plastic bag over the rotor so I can roll it through the caliper) and brush in the two-part system. I've ...

re: Best router for large house - LSUtigerME
Another vote for running a hard wired PoE access point. The Ubiquiti is fantastic so far. I used a cheapo TP-Link for a while and it kept freezing up and causing issues. Bought the UniFi one last week and wondered why I didn't buy it first....

re: Painted kitchen cabinets? - LSUtigerME
I can't stand painted cabinets. Something about it cheapens it to me. Might as well buy some pine and paint them. Not saying you can't update the look, but painting over a quality wood cabinet irks me. Like putting linoleum over hard wood floors. The painting/antiquing feels very "fad"-ish to me,...

re: Bulging capacitor replacement... Who would do this? - LSUtigerME
If not wanting to deal with soldering new caps on, could you just replace the board? More expansive, but effectively just removing a few screws and connectors. The board on my Samsung went out after a lightning strike. Besides diagnosing which board had failed, the actual repair looked incredibly...
