  • Good DIY site

    I haven't had much time lately to be on RP lately, but I wanted to pass this on. The following site has also been submitted for the "links" on RP. If you are a DIYer, and you have a problem with an appliance, visit this site. It will help you identify the faulty part, show you how to replace it, and you are also able to order parts (they give you the part number), which I found to be competitive in pricing. Shipping was very fast. If the part in question is not in stock, that information will be available for you as well. I've only used this site once, but I was very impressed with it, and I will certainly use it again.

    Thanks, Ed! I'm not much into DIY, although I like to read and watch how someone can do it themselves. It'll be a good guide for me to compare to whoever I end up having do it for me.

      Good site Ed,

      I will be very useful to beable to try and find the problem your self before a pro tells you something has gone that hasn't. I don't know whether you have seen it by in England there is a program called 'rouge traders', that trys to publicise bad jobs from builders to washing machine fixers, its a good viewing program but does make you quite anxious when something goes wrong.

      We had radiator problems about 2 years ago and called a big company to check out the problem and fix it. They told us we needed to have the whole system flushed through, that would cost us from £400.00. After watching 'rouge traders' we were a little bit on edge thinking that the system had not been in for that long, so decided not to go for it. It turned out to be the thermostate and timer that had died, had it replaced and its still working.

      A warm and cosy Clare

        That looks like a very helpful site too Clare. It's too bad that a few bad apples give a whole industry a bad name by being less than trustworthy, but I guess that's part of life as we know it.

          Does someone have your credit card number?

          This site could be of interest if you are concerned that someone could have gotten your credit/debit card number. https://cardtest.cardcops.com

          Is it the site?
          by Ed_L
          I've been on the site twice today, and both times it took an awful long time for things to come in. I just got back from viewing one of the challenges, and it took over three minutes to load. Is anyone else having that problem? I'm on DellNet (MSN).

          Cookies anyone?
          by Ed_L
          I decided to get rid of all the cookies I didn't want, and I found there were well over 400 on my hard drive since last January. I decided to make my options for privacy a little higher. Then I found out that when I visited sites, there were all kinds of places wanting to place cookies on my machine....

          Sponsorship?
          by G. Couch
          With all the discussion about generating money for Retouch Pro I figured I would ask this question... With 20000 people a month visiting the site, 1200+ members and an owner who is constantly improving and updating features, what would be the possibility of getting the site or part of the site sponsored...

          Content rating?
          by Ed_L
          Doug,

          I just put a "content block" on my internet options. Now I get an annoying pop up sign telling me that I can't access the site. But since I am the Administrator for the computer, I am able to type in a password for access. Problem is that I have to type it in for *every*...
