They replaced a screen with flimsy glass that quickly cracked. When I went back to complain they said the would fix it but would need to charge me full price. Conveniently, their prices had just jumped up about 40 bucks too. Went to Apple (which I should have done in the first place) & they said who ever replaced the glass did not include all of the pieces. I think they said the couplers were gone. Anyway, Apple could not fix it due to the missing pieces and replaced my phone for a better price then what these guys were charging.


With a handle of photo2775 and the fact that it's your first post makes me think you're a competitor.

I've been doing IT support work for a long time and I outsource some hardware repairs. Tried a bunch of places but YuFixit always had the job right. Everything from glass or battery replacements to major jobs with 100 screws on an ultra-slim laptop keyboard replacement.

I agree with Brewster as well. But as for the law (and I would NEVER run my 1-family house at these temps), this was from the NJ Housing Code:

Utility requirements
From October 1 to May 1, the rental
premises shall be maintained at
a temperature of at least 68
degrees Fahrenheit between the hours of 6:00 a.
m. and 11:00 p.m.; between the hours of 11:00
p.m. and 6:00 a.m. the rental premises shall be
maintained at a temperatur
e of at least 65 degrees
Fahrenheit. The hot water temperature should be
maintained at a minimum of 120 degrees and a
maximum of a 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tks, dtview. That answers garbage for those parts that have garbage collected on Thursdays, but it fails to address Recycling (normally scheduled in my 'hood for tonight). Guess I'll take a chance and put it out unless someone can get us the definitive answer-

The same can be said for you, "Why not give it a rest?" Aren't we talking about a child, not politics. I think a gay star who went through something similar has more to say on the subject than you or me. It is absolutely evil to place any child on hormones, something that must be done because in approximately five years, this "boy" will have a body of a woman.


SIGH.

Since you are intellectually challenged, I will try to explain the difference between our posts: you are posting more and more, trying to convince others about your viewpoint, while I have done none of that and simply pointed out to you that your posts are being ignored. I have no reason to "give it a rest" because I have done nothing to try and convince all others of my viewpoint, which I have neither shared, nor tried to impose it on others. For all you know, I could be in agreement with you.


The fact that she's posted something like 42 times out of 143 total posts on this thread alone says it all. Instead of "giving it a rest", I'm guessing most of just wish she'd go away. Incredibly tiresome....

I left the lath up partly for this reason. I've heard about paying off the workers, but I'd rather not encourage any more corruption in JC than we already have. Soon you'd need to be paying them just to take your regular garbage.


I hear you loud and clear. When I did that 25 years ago the only other option was a local guy with a pickup truck who would just dump it at the end of a dead end street. At least this got the debris to a proper dump site...

Sheetrock over lath can be a challenge if your lath is warped and your sheetrock panels are off at the edges. Doing it on the ceiling is a drag. Call in your buddies for beer and pizza and tell them to bring their screw guns! Heck, we've gone this deep, I'll even help!

It's only the plaster from an 11x11 ceiling and cutting a doorway, and thin crappy plaster at that, 1/4" in spots!! Not much volume, less than a yard IMO, but heavy as hell. In retrospect I should have just put the 5/8 rock over it. You can get your regular pickup to take small bundles of scrap lumber if you dribble them out, but they'll never take 40 lb bags of plaster.



So, $100/yard is cheaper than $200 minimum.

I used those things for a pretty big gut job about 15 years ago and found them to be a pain. Also paid about the same but don't recall the company name. The next time I used a private hauler with a truck but I'm pretty sure he retired.

I just noticed a medium-size truck down the block from me with the phone number "1-800-Got-Junk" painted on all sides. I've seen this company around here before. Might be worth seeing if they'll give you a quote-

I used him once about 2 years ago and I can confirm that's true-

I hired him to replace a 50 gallon tall-type water heater and I told him in advance that I wanted the same type. He arrived with a 40 gallon lowboy model in his truck and tried to convince me to accept it, which I refused. So then he drives back to southern Bayonne to get the one I wanted while I sat around waiting for him. What should have been a 45 minute job ended up taking more than 4 hours...

It is usually the owners actions that cause the dogs to attack to begin with. You abuse and neglect a dog you are increasing the likely hood it would attack someone one day. If you treated a child the same way some of these dogs were treated before they attacked, you would have a similar outcome. Some people just shouldn't own pets or raise kids. The dog breed isn't the problem though the owner is.

Re: Turntable repair

Nice speakers and I'm also partial to domed tweeters (my mains are ADS L710s + a bi-amped powered sub with an active crossover). Pretty sure your tweeters were made in 3 versions. Each version a bit more efficient than the prior version, so matching gets pretty important and that's why I brought up the subject.

These prices look pretty nuts but it's a start:
http://www.ellisaudio.com/hiquphon.htm

Definitely a DIY job. The last thing you want to do is ship or schlep that baby...

Edit: Just did some homework and it's now 5 versions of that tweeter. Normally sold in matched (tested) pairs. More info:

More details on the tweeter? If the cone or dome is shot then you'd honestly be better off replacing both tweeters in the speaker pair because finding an exact replacement for one is pretty unlikely. Nice speakers. Maybe I can help you too? I realize we're switching topics mid-thread but audiophiles are chill

RATS! He was brilliant at doing a variety of computer circuit board repairs I needed. I'm so depressed right now I might as well go watch football...

Mess, I probably sold several hundred of those 701s. One of the first direct-drive units and they were really quiet. The arms were so-so IMO, but it was still a solid table for a fraction of the price of a Thorens with a granite base and an SME tonearm. I'm definitely a DIY-type and I can offer to help see if it can be made right. I probably have the necessary small tools. Parts? Fugedaboutit-

I used to retail audio gear back in the 1970s, including a ton of Dual turntables. I'll try to help you out here-

Gimme the specific model #. Then describe the problem a bit. Like maybe it's a belt-drive platter and you just need a new belt? That's about $8 and 10 minutes with a screwdriver for a DIY repair. Shoot back here or take it to p.m.

The only good shop I know of in DTJC is Danillo (sp?) Electronics on Newark Ave., North Side, just a hair West of Monmouth. Owner speaks almost no English but he's really good and inexpensive. Bring a Spanish-speaking friend if you don't-

Time will tell if it's enough - but can't claim they've done nothing since Sandy.


They're not doing my street. Someone at the MUA claimed it was fine in their survey, even though when the MUA ran a cam down it 18 years ago they reported a 18" diameter brick sewer filled with longitudinal and offset cracks.


I even remember wood sewer pipes, many of them running under people's back yards (instead of down the street). They were built like barrels with staves and hoops, coated with creosote on the inside. When they collapsed it was a disaster and a very-expensive excavation to connect to the new line in the street.

There are a few pockets in DT that are "just enough" higher that they didn't have standing water during Sandy. I think this links properly:

I've seen plenty of clueless cyclists and we've got a shiteload of bad drivers, many of whom are cutting through DTJC at rush hour and they're in a pissy mood 'cause the traffic sucks. Sharing isn't even remotely in most drivers' minds. I ride, I drive, I walk, and I've come to the conclusion that all have become a matter of defensive navigation.

Enforcement around here is a joke. Practically none at all.

I was waiting to cross Jersey Ave this afternoon (in a marked crosswalk), and there was a woman with a baby stroller next to me. We saw a JC Cop car approaching and figured he'd stop. Nope. He was on his cell phone held up to his ear, not wearing a seat belt, speeding, and one of his head lights was out. 4 violations right there, 5 if you include the failure to yield...

Resident parking enforcement? Nope. 1/4 of the cars on my block all day are commuters without permits.

Parking too close to the corner? All the time. Sometimes even into the crosswalks. The worst offender BY FAR is the main public library -- they'll park a big-ass truck into the crosswalk almost every day and you can't see around it without going into the traffic lane. No tickets...

Been here 30 years and it's worse than it's ever been. Do we need more cops? Maybe, but how about we start with existing cops doing their job?

The biggest issue is the means of emergency egress, meaning can you climb out to safety if the house is on fire. No permanently-fixed metal bars and no upstairs floor unless there's a fire escape.

As I recall from years ago when I owned several rental properties Downtown there were minor differences in the local codes if it was a one-family structure vs. multi-family commercial.

Re: No heat in apartment

Suzy, that's a fair question IMO. Being on the top floor, well, that's where the air typically ends up. If you pull off the end caps off your baseboard radiators you may or may not find "bleed valves". Open it a bit with a proper key (which you probably don't have) or a small pair of pliers and let the air out. When you get water, shut it off tightly. Might help...

Some hot water systems are completely sealed and you can't bleed air from inside your apartment. It would have to be done at the boiler, presumably in the basement. Not a difficult job but not something to mess with if you don't know heating mechanics. Good luck-
