  • main floor and basement living quartersthermostat placement?

    I live in the lower level of a 3 bedroom bungalow, the thermostat is in the lower level, when the air conditioning comes on in the summer, the lower level is always much colder than the upper level.

    Is there such a thing as a Temperature Balancing, Air Circulation System?

    that would maintain the close to equal temperature, upper level, and lower level?

  • What is Wrong With Sound Engineers?

    What is Wrong with Modern Sound Engineers on television productions?

    They have the Sound Effects, and Background Music, Cranked up so loud, that it is becoming extremely difficult to hear the Narration!

    Surely in the day of technology, when the can remove voices from audio performance, just leaving the music, Someone would accept the challenge to devise equipment, to remove background noise and sound effects from programs in order to better enjoy the narration!, or just have the engineers crank down the background Noise.

  • can You remove Background Noise from Tv Audio?

    I have Sensitive Hearing, in that When watching a TV show, I have trouble hearing the Spoken Words, because the Background Music, and Sound Effects, seem to Overwhelm the Verbal.

    It seems that they have placed the background music, and Sound effects, at the same, or higher volume than the Spoken Words, which makes it very uncomfortable to try and listen to the Actors, amid all the Music, and crash, and bang sound effects!

    Is there any device that can be placed in between the tv audio output, that will enhance the verbal audio, and at the same time, diminish the bacground music, and sound effects?

    It would make My life so much more Pleasant!

    Kindest Regards, any assistance, would be Most appreciated!

  • Do You get Email Worm Virus's?

    I may have created a fix.

    In your Contacts email addresses , place a letter prior to the @ sign, such as( Z@) this will make the address unusable to an email Worm virus, and it will not be able to replicate itself, and send itself to all of your contacts.

    When you are composing, after selecting your recipient and it has been placed in your email, just remove the letter placed prior to the @ sign, and send your mail.
