    I have some USB cams that I want to install outside of my house. They are USB powered, with a cord that needs to be run inside to an electrical outlet. I have the outlets available, but I don't really know how to get the USB cord from inside to outside. One is near a window, but how would I run...

    Hello, I am using Windows 7 and I want to keep this system. I have changed systems on other computers and it caused software glitches that never went away. I am sure that my PC would get slower with a different system, and who knows what else might happen. I do not have time for trouble...

    Hi, I'm new to posting in the forums so sorry if this is in the wrong place. I have a Kwikset lever exterior door handle and an odd situation.

  7. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Any suggestions for economical ways to secure a couple of park benches in a semi-public memorial garden? They are nice benches and we don't want them to "walk off". The benches will be resting on soil, not on concrete pads. I had thought of burying a couple of cement blocks under the benches...
  8. Building & Construction
    I installed a new front door and plan on putting in a new back door on my house. I don't live in a bad neighborhood, but it's no Mayberry either.... I can buy a Pella door with a metal doorframe for around $700. Ouch. But if that's what will help protect my wife when I'm gone - I'm all for it...

    I have a single-pane metal casement window with a "T" crank. The vertical locking mechanism works fine, but only locks the window in a closed position. Is there a supplemental lock I can install that will permit the window to stay open slightly? The metal frame is very narrow (house built in...
