re: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) ***W.H.O. DECLARES A GLOBAL PANDEMIC*** - slacker00
They tried the best they could to isolate the infected from the healthy on the Diamond Princess. I'm sure that helped slow the spread. It's not like they tried to get everyone infected and only 20% ended up getting it....

Trimming a door in place? - slacker00
Any suggestions on what to use to shorten a door in place? I have a pocket door and can't remove it without pulling off some of the trim. Any suggestions? New carpet is thicker and I had to cut down all of my doors. The normal doors were easy to remove from hinges and cut with a circular saw....

re: 1795 covid-19 cases in LA (+407), 19 new deaths - slacker00
How accurate are these tests? I asked before but can't find much. What I did find was they were created to not give false positives, but they would give false negatives. Read somewhere that the Chinese tests were even worse and would give both false negatives and false positives....

Reads as the test was designed to limit false positives, so the converse, false negatives woyld be expected. [link=(https://www.fda.gov/media/134920/download)]CDC testing fact sheet[/link]...

re: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) ***W.H.O. DECLARES A GLOBAL PANDEMIC*** - slacker00
Why is the percent positive so low? We keep hearing they aren't testing except critical cases. Are we getting a high false negative on the tests? ...

without more widespread testing that % means almost nothing. The 45 days to peak is interesting though. Of course it is someone's educated guess and we will have to wait and see....

re: HLSR is now cancelled. - slacker00
[quote]And I’ve seen a few articles speculating that we’ve already had this in the country for awhile and much earlier than people are realizing, meaning that hospitals would not be near as likely to be swamped by tens of thousands of simultaneous cases. Just my 2 cents, might be right, might be tot...

re: NEW PROJECT - Lighting for 30 x 31.5 garage - slacker00
Yes, that's a typo. The product says 120 Volts in several places. Of course you have 110 but that just means our calculation for amps is slightly off (your house is 110 and 220). Either way the question remains what else is on the same circuit? If the garage receptacles are all on the same circu...
