  • Is it safe to store really good knives on a magnetic holder?

    Is it safe to store really good knives on a magnetic knife holder?

    I want to buy a couple of really good knives (read: three at between $150-$300 a piece), and would like to get a magnetic knife holder to mount on the wall to display them while they are not in use.

    Is it safe to store that expensive a knife on a magnetic holder, provided it is mounted securely?

    Will it ruin the blade over time or anything?

  • How to clean a couch with non-removable cushions?

    We have a couch with cushions that are sown on, so they can't be removed. Unfortunately our dog peed on the couch the other day and we aren't sure how to get it clean. We can clean the surface of course, but since we can't just throw the cushions in the washer or something I'm not sure how to get a deep clean.

    Any suggestions would be great as I really don't want to have to throw out the couch.....

  • Wireless USB NIC disconnecting with drive state change?

    I have a Linksys WUSB600N USB wireless adapter.

    Any time a drive changes state it disconnects the network. If I eject the cd-rom, unplug a USB device, right-click and eject the hardware from down by the clock, or even unmount a VIRTUAL drive, the network disconnects and then reconnects itself a few seconds later.

    This question was asked on here before by another user, and the only answer that made sense had to do with reassigning internal addresses. Which I understand, however that doesn't explain what can be done to fix it.

    I am running Win XP, hella powerful system, don't feel like listing it all.

    Troubleshooting steps: reinstalled OEM drivers, downloaded newest drivers, uninstalled/reinstalled, countless reboots, swapped USB ports, etc, and happens on any computer.

    Called Linksys tech support and all they could tell me was they would send me a new NIC. Which is fine since it happens on multiple computers which means it is most likely the NIC. ....but being a tech myself, that doesn't help much since it doesn't explain WHY it is happening....

    Any suggestions?
