Re: Time is not correct

You probably didn't adjust your time zone preferences when Daylight Savings Time ended back in early November. I would tell you how to do it, but I'm too lazy at the moment.

Re: What is your favorite soda pool

None of these because I have no interest in sodas/soft drinks. On a slightly unrelated note, I also have no interest in any alcoholic drinks either (I am technically old enough to consume alcohol, but I choose not to). I'll take either milk or water any day!

What to do with smoke alarm manuals when moving out

For reasons I do not want to explain at this time, my (immediate) family will be moving out relatively soon.

My question is: what do you do with the manuals when you move out? Do I leave it behind for whoever is going to move into my soon-to-be-former house?

Re: Siemens rebranding EST equipment

I think I remember seeing Siemens rebranded SIGA series detectors somewhere in Chicago O'Hare Airport, but I'm not 100% sure on that (only been there for one trip back in 2011)...

Re: Strange mouse behavior

I would try unplugging the receiver for the mouse and try a generic, run of the mill USB mouse and see if that makes a difference. Try the same with your keyboard if that doesn't work. If none of those work, I will try to think of other things that could be the problem. Actually, I already fixed th...

Re: Strange mouse behavior

I forgot to mention that I've also tested to see if the battery was low. The battery was fine (my multimeter read slightly more than 1.4 volts). Additionally, I had suspected that maybe it was one of the keys on my keyboard. That was not the case. Again, if anyone knows what the problem could be, le...

Strange mouse behavior

This is a problem that just started happening with my desktop PC. At first, I thought it was a problem exclusively through my video editing program (Sony Vegas), but that, ultimately was not the case. As an example, in Sony Vegas, in the media bin, if I try to scroll up using the scroll wheel, it sc...

Re: firealarmveteran15's "Mini Tests"

As mentioned, in the other topic , since this week was National Fire Prevention Week, so I posted (at least) one video for every day on Monday thru Friday of said week. I'll post the videos as links due to the overwhelming amount of embedded videos on this topic. Mini Test 18: https://www.youtube.co...

Re: firealarmveteran15's non-"Mini Test" videos

I was wondering what happened to the second video and if it was still around and you could visit the website. Did somebody else also post that video a few years ago? I'll answer your question at a later point as that I'm busy with other things (especially non-FA related things) right now. Also, my ...

Edwards 8810-AWs, Wheelock RSS, Wheelock AS-2415 and I swear I heard a Classic SpectrAlert in there.
That video is actually from one of our members: TheAlmightyZach.
