This is the perfect MO.

When someone posts a question like "How wire cans" or "How do you charge to wire a building" without putting any real effort into the question they can expect an equal lack of effect on my end.


Heres "how wire "can" light":
(Work in progress shot)



How I charge to wire a building:

As much as I try to look past the total lack of punctuation, sentence structure, grammer, syntax, spelling, capitalizaiton and the use of that ancient concept of paragraphs that seems to be a dying art these days, one cannot cease to be amazed at the gall of some people trying to pass themselves off as professionals just to get a DIY question answered.

But I gotta admit.... asking how much per square foot to wire a hospital or a mall is pretty much a dead giveaway.

Some things that seem basic to me, are regular questions by some, some questions have been answered numerous times. I do understand frustrations at some posters (such as me being fed up with POWERSAVOR posters).

But if theses posters did not visit this site we'd all be contributing to the music game.

And Speedy does a durn good job of weeding out and closing DIYer's

Well, what I was getting at is the lazy posters that give us less than a sentence and expect us to take their thread seriously.

No, I had a good day actually. Picked up a Greenlee nylon snake for $12 and some high output ballasts for $2 each.
