Light Bulbs

February 14, 2009

Has anyone had any success with replacing their MR16 bulbs (in the kitchen and bathroom ceiling) with either compact fluorescent or LED bulbs? I tried a cf bulb and it just didn’t provide enough light.

Dogs

April 30, 2008

I really like that we have some dogs in the building. I’d like to get one myself someday, and was wondering if anyone in the building has a dog walker that they really like or is capable of adding a dog or two to their walks during the day.

Water Issues

April 17, 2008

I’m sure most people are aware already, but water service was out for the entire building for several hours this past saturday. It had something to do with an emergency on the street. Does anyone else have any more information? And is that issue somehow related to the lack of hot water starting last night?

On a semi-related front, I’m having an issue with fairly severe knocking when the faucet in the kitchen is suddenly shut off. I’m pretty sure this is due to a long run of pipe going back to the bathroom. I believe an arrestor would solve the problem, but I don’t believe this would be an easy fix. Anyone else having similar problems? None of us want a burst water pipe.
