Re: WAY OT : Well Water Issues

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to solve it: https://www.hunker.com/12132838/how-to-get-rid-of-rotten-egg...

Mate a hose to the cold water inlet, suck on the end, drop it in the floor drain and it will use the dip tube like a reverse siphon.

Re: Logic probe... what do you recommend?

I use a scope, but it's definitely a pain in the butt when I could have something a little more immediately line-of-sight. I'm just too cheap to buy more tech when I have something that already works well enough for my needs.

Re: Drain thread

I don't actually want to delete threads, and this isn't like reddit where you just get buried in the pile-on. It's more like "Meh, I don't care about that thread and I don't want to have it pop up on my screen any more."

Drain thread

Pinside has an interesting feature where a user can "drain" a thread- it will effectively mute that thread from the recent topics so that it won't pop up for that user any more. It's very useful for threads that you have no interest in, especially when a single user, often the OP, continua...
