@Etmax: ...was too cheap to hire one for the 5 occasions I've needed one.
My 19-year-old son is in the JROTC -- they had their "Military Ball" last weekend -- I had to hire a tux -- the price made my eyes water -- fortunately, the only other time I think I'll need to wear a suit is when he gets married (hopefully not for a while) -- as far as I'm concerned, that should do me for the rest of my life :-)
@MeasurmentBlues: ...when are you going to learn that your shelf brackets need to be attached to studs in the wall?
It's no longer a problem -- I have simplified my life -- I now own two pairs of sneakers, one pair each of brown and black shoes (in case of an emergency), one pair of hiking boots, four pairs of shorts for summer, three pairs of yeans for winter, about 10 T-Shirts and about 20 Hawaiian shirts (plus socks, handkerchiefs, etc.)
@Max, when are you going to learn that your shelf brackets need to be attached to studs in the wall?
I once heard a story from someone who bought a house and the cabinets where not attached to the studs, just screwed into the plaster. They came crashing down one night after being loaded with dishes. Someone did the kitchen remodel either just on the cheap to make it looks good for sale or the installer was really dumb.

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
