Now I'm not in the burgling industry, so maybe I'm way off base here. However, it seems to me that any burglar who is conscientious enough to keep track of such developments would also be aware of, and deterred by, the fact that this technology means the homeowner now has a picture of said home invader.
Thanks, guys! I got the first Nest yesterday, and the two-wire thermostat is the one that needs the programmability more, so I may try to wire it this weekend if I can find the time.
I haven't listened to Rome in a long time now, because I don't listen to sports talk radio anymore, but I was a fan of his when I did. He could be obnoxious (they all are), but I enjoyed his analysis and interviews (even when he wasn't getting his ass kicked).
Assuming the wires are indeed R and W, will I get all the functionality from the Nest if I use this setup?Good to know, thanks! I'd heard their support is solid, so I may take advantage of it.I'm a little dubious of the learning function, too, especially because of the way my house is laid out in addition to the two zone thing. That said, I'm getting one for free and the other for $100 off, so I'll be into them for less than $150 total. At that price, I'm okay if Nest just...
Have any of you guys installed a Nest thermostat? I have one coming for each of my two thermostats. One current wiring setup looks like it should take the Nest easily, but the other is an old school two-wire setup with the mercury bubble. Does anyone know if the latter will work as-is with the Nest? Or am I going to have to run more wire to make it work?
This sounds awesome. I'm hoping I didn't miss the you-pick season here. I got an early harvest from my jalapeño plants this year, so I was going to make some strawberry jalapeño jelly for the grownups and regular jelly for the kids, and it would be cool to use some really fresh berries. I keep the garden with my son, and we make jelly together, so I know he'd love it if we used berries we picked.
I'm super excited about this. My general skepticism regarding supergroups is well documented, but I'm cautiously optimistic that Prophets of Rage could be the second supergroup to live up to its apparent potential.
I used to buy them on the side of the road, but now I make my own. I was just thinking earlier that I should make some soon. I'm planning to make some put-ups this weekend, so I'll be in the kitchen a good bit; maybe I'll do some boiled peanuts while I'm in there!It is a little odd that we don't have an "All Things Southern" thread.
That's pretty much my take on the whole thing, Mouse. Kids are impulsive and unpredictable, even the good ones. I don't know any parent who doesn't have a story or two like the guy who wrote that. With regard to the kid at the zoo, I have no idea how he got down there, but I do know that, taken on its own, the fact that the kid may have momentarily gotten away from his mother says basically nothing about whether or not she is a fit parent.
