re: Periodic Internet Time Outs - Home Network - RickAstley
This happens for wired and wireless devices. The drops usually span around 10 seconds. Sometimes it is considerably worse, other times it is just a blip. One thing that I've seen more often than not is that we are still receiving data, but uploading back hits a snag. This isn't true for every exampl...

Periodic Internet Time Outs - Home Network - RickAstley
I have an issue where my home internet periodically times out. We'll have a stable wi-fi/ethernet connection, and then an intermittent period where connectivity either drops, or becomes very unstable. We've had the ISP out several times (ongoing for months), and most recently the onsite technician s...

Questions around 529s and Rollovers - RickAstley

re: Found a good deal on AirPods but wonder if it's a scam - RickAstley
About 2 months ago my dad was shopping for a specific HP printer. He googled the printer and one of the first three sites in the shopping results was a sketchy website that had the printer $100 off. He didn't want to deal with the hassle of it being a scam, but he very much wanted the discount. He c...

Financial Tips for New Parents - RickAstley
MT I am looking for general tips for a soon to be parent. I did not see a specific section in the MT Guide thread, and searching for threads hasn't been as straightforward as it seems. Outside of saving money, what would you recommend an upcoming parent do to help financially prepare for parentho...

re: Nest IQ Outdoor - $100.03 at Home Depot! - RickAstley
The items are likely to be marked down, but being 75% off is TBD. An item can enter clearance in the system but be marked down between 25%, 50% and 75%. There might be some other random discount stages in there as well. All the stores on the results page for me show clearance, but only one had th...

re: Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
Maytag Bravos. I ran a cycle with Affresh and there weren't any bad odors afterwards. The inside of the washer doesn't smell like it did either. I'll keep monitoring, but I think this might've been a dirty washer issue....

re: Electric Lawnmowers - RickAstley
I use a Ryobi 40v push mower and I've been very pleased with it. As mentioned, you will be replacing your batteries over time. I have found using ebay is a great way to save on batteries. Also, buying tools in the same battery family can save you money. I bought a hedge trimmer and a blower with a 4...

re: Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
The laundry room is on the first floor along with the master bath and kitchen. Since we first noticed the smell, we haven't done anything that involved a large volume of water draining all at once. The smell appears after doing laundry, but goes away after an hour or so....

Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
The last two times we've run laundry, a sewage smell has originated from the laundry room (I'm not 100% certain of this, but it is where the smell is strongest). Any thoughts on what I should look for? Should I just call a plumber and not even wait another day?...

re: Getting started in home automation...suggestions needed - RickAstley
I'd recommend starting off small and building your way up. And also stick to name brands that have been around for more than a couple of years. As you expand, you will want to strongly consider a hub if you want to start including sensors into your ecosystem. The good news is just having a smart spe...
