Guys, I need some pictures of bad installs

My computer crashed and I lost an entire Powerpoint presentation I was going to do for our local heating inspectors. The focus was to be bad boiler installs , their failures and causes. Also code violations and the corrective action. Can you help me out with pictures so I can build another presentation. I have to have this ready for next Tuesday. Or would one of you already have a "canned" presentation I could beg, borrow or steal? Mark E, Dave Yates, Anybody? Email is garyj at fluidh.com. Cell is 920 277 0130. Thanks, Gary

    Heating Hell

    Hi Gary,

    I'm sorry to hear about your computer crash. We have a section in our Forum called Heating Hell. I think you'll find some interesting pictures there. http://www.heatinghelp.com/forum-category/88/Heating-Hell

    Best of luck!

    Check your email...

    Help is on its way.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    An application called Dropbox

    Checkout an application called Dropbox when you are done rebuilding your presentation. It syncs files offline and between computers.  You can drag a file to the dropbox on the PC and it automatically is copied to your offline storage. I use it to store and move stuff between my laptop, desktop and iPhone.  The iPhone Dropbox app mates to the PC Dropbox and at any time you can call up and view and manage what is in the offline storage.


    And there are of course the USB devices which I also use. I like Dropbox for some stuff because I can get to it from anywhere on any PC and from my phone.

    online backup

    Yeah I use Carbonite for all my backups. It's $50 a year, so far it's worked great
