What are the best (free) intermediate-to-advanced DIY resources on the
net? (other than this newsgroup :)
Most sites that I have seen either:
- Shamelessly plug product (...10,000 uses for Brand X glue...)
- Are aimed at the novice (...how to change a lightbulb..)
- Tend to be way too superficial (...how to remodel your kitchen
in 100 words or fewer...)
So, what are your favorites out there?
There are some very helpful appliance repair related sites
that I'm aware of, but I'll put a shameless plug <grin> in here
for my free monthly email newsletter.
Yes, it carries a couple of ads now and then for products
or programs that I've found beneficial, but I primarily share
the practical tips and tricks I've picked up over the last 32
years as a pro appliance technician.
I actually started the project in '02 as a bit of 'midlife crisis'
therapy, but have found it so much fun (and therapeutic) that
I've kept at it.
I try to speak to both the pro tech and DIY'er, bc quite a few
of both subscribe, and we go well beyond the usual 'is it plugged
Try it and see what you think. Or feel free to peruse some

http://www.buildingscience.com/ has some good info.
Then there are the manufactures web sites, it is nice to be able to get
detailed info w/o a pushy salesman. And the industry sites, like
www.cement.org are good as well.
