• How do unvented air conditioners work?

    I understand the concept of air conditioners. How they use electrical energy to drive a pump that compresses a coolant and as that coolant decompresses it absorbs heat and releases cool. The process continues with the compression which creates heat which needs to be dissipated (normally to the outside) for the process to be effective. But in an... show more
    I understand the concept of air conditioners. How they use electrical energy to drive a pump that compresses a coolant and as that coolant decompresses it absorbs heat and releases cool. The process continues with the compression which creates heat which needs to be dissipated (normally to the outside) for the process to be effective. But in an unvented system where both heat and cool are released into the same room, while also adding the heat generated by the electrical motor, I don't understand how these units effectively cool.

  • Oil Change on 2005 911S?

    How often is an oil change needed/required on a 2005 Porsche 911S. The dealers say one thing and literature says others. With synthetic oil and difficult access oil changes are expensive and I just want to be sure I'm changing enough, but not too much.

    OK, so I have a 3G iPhone with the latest 3.1 software. I have a PC desktop and laptop and a Linxsys router. The wireless network works fine on the laptop. When I'm out there in the world and my iPhone detects an unsecured network it hooks up just fine. So bottom line my home network works fine and the iPhone works fine when hooking up with unsecured networks. When at home, the iPhone easily finds and identifies my home network. I try to connect. It asks me for my password which I know, but I check anyway to be sure I have it right. I properly put the password into the screen on the iPhone and click on join. After a few seconds it says "Unable to join the network "D#####k" and allows me to dismiss. So how does one join a home network without making it unsecured?

  • Does this impact my FICO score?

    I pay my bills in a timely manner each month. I pay off any credit card balance each month and pay no finance charges. The credit card I use most and have the largest credit line on just cut that credit line in half because they say I don't use it enough and I don't need such a large limit. Is this going to impact my FICO score?

  • Does anybody think spammers are ruining this thread?

    I sure do. Do you want to do anything about it? Do you think this is a losing battle? Does Yahoo even care? Or is Yahoo siding with the spammers? If you don't like it, you can do what I do and report every spam post you see. Are you with me on this??? Did I ask enough questions so Yahoo will leave this up? Or is Yahoo siding with the spammers?

I've gone to these scumbag's personal page and have reported their identical spam answers. Yahoo has taken many of the answers down. But they keep posting the same spam answers over and over again. Besides reporting the spam answers over and over again, how can we get Yahoo to permanently remove these vermin? Shouldn't they remove them after several reports? Shouldn't Yahoo have a special report where you can report a pattern of spam and only spam instead of just reporting individual answers? Can't we report the actual spammers instead of just their spam?

In my mind, it insults anybody who works at a restaurant, especially Long John Silvers. Also, I don't understand if he had a better job why he would have lost it and had to work at Long John Silvers just because his identity was stolen. A stupid and offensive ad in my mind.

  • I can't make posts on Yahoo Message boards anymore.?

    Every time I try to post I get this message: "Atleast one identity should be chosen." I have 5 identities (3 of which do not appear to work including my main identity which automatically pops up on the drop down box). Seems to be a problem with Yahoo, but I don't know how to get Yahoo help on a Yahoo problem.
