I was looking at all in one stainless steel sink kits at lowes and particularly liked one from Kohlers website for $489, Lowes had it for $249, and I found that lowes pricematched. I found a homedepot ad that they had it on clearance for $46 while supplies last, it was sold out at HD, but Lowes pricematched it. I got what is basically a $500 sink for $50 after tax, plus I got a faucet and other sink parts at Home Depot after (figured I should leave before they changed their minds lol, they had to get the manager). $200 for everything. Idk why but I felt amazing.
I've been troubleshooting connectivity issues between two locations for a few hours now. Turns out it's someone in-between throttling ESP (IPSEC) traffic. I know this because as soon as I force-enable UDP encapsulation of the ESP traffic, the throttling issue goes away.
I was getting 10KB/s (yes you read that right) between the locations using non-encapsulated ESP. As soon as enabling UDP encapsulation, I was maxing out my line speed.
I've seen this at least a few dozen times in my career. Some Tier 2/3 ISP gets the bright idea to install a DDoS mitigation appliance or traffic shaping appliance to save on their bandwidth bills and misconfigures it to heavily restrict non TCP/UDP/ICMP traffic. Eventually enough people complain and they fix the issue (weeks later) but every so often it creeps back up.
So, ProTIP: Always force enable UDP encapsulation on IPSEC traffic for site-to-site.
Anyone finding it nearly impossible to find a decent top freezer refrigerator in the midwest? Everything is either out of stock till september or $900+
Is it just how they decided to design it and just stuck with it or is there some electrical/wiring reason for this?
I deliver and install appliances and take old ones out. I have no idea how their work, but what I have in power is asking question about the old units I’m taking out.
You’d be surprised how many 2-4 year old units in taking out daily (fridges mostly, but applies to everything as well)
And price doesn’t matter either. $4000 fridge can last as much or less than $800 one.
Another life hack: if you own Samsung or Lg appliance(US and Canada only, European models build a lot better) and it breaks on you within first few years - more repairs incoming! Abort the mission.

Edit 2: Thanks for the award! I think I’m gonna write another post as a shopping guide on how appliance business actually works so you can get the most painless experience
I asked a question on the Facebook account of this manufacturer because an appliance I wanted for my home has been backlogged for months, so I was wondering if/when it would be finally released. He responded:
> I would say there is an 80% probability that all of our releases will be pushed back to 2021 or even 2022 at this point, for a multitude of reasons.
It made me feel...completely dejected. It's not even because I won't get the appliance or whatever. It seems, more and more likely now, that we are going to have to accept that this is going to go on into next year or beyond. Hints of this continue being dropped left and right in the last few days. Slowly, I am losing hope that life will ever go back to normal. Ever. Not just in 2020, but in general. People are still terrified. Just today, I saw people selling "Stay Home, Isolate" shirts on one of those pop culture websites, and it was a "top seller".

Hi fellas. Just looking to get an eli5 for how a choke is supposed to work. Every time I try to mow/use a whipper snipper, I spend 20 minutes fucking arou d trying the get the thing started, and sit there wondering if I have flooded the engine, or whatever.
I'm talking fans, vacuums, blenders, anything that makes a constant sound. Whenever one is in use, I find myself humming melodies with their sound as a drone. My window fan is running right now, pitched around half a semitone below C# (plus or minus some error. I needed to sing its pitch into a tuner for it to register.), and I was humming some minor melody with its pitch as i.
I am curious what others' experiences with this are though, and if they've done anything interesting with it.
My post doesn't seem to break any rules, but let me know if it's too off-topic and I'll remove it.
Edit: Thanks for all the great responses, I enjoyed reading them!
I am going to reno my kitchen, a full gut job. I have no idea what to do with appliances. Long term, french door vs. side by side refrigerator won't make a difference.

Hi all, just wanted to share this in case anyone's considering buying an airfryer. It. Is. Amazing.
Turn it on to preheat to 200°C in 3 minutes, during which I take out my beef and cut it into nice chewable pieces, put it in and wait 4-5 minutes. Depending on how rare I'm feeling that day.
Because of the air frying technique, all of the oil and water will stay in the container. It will simply condense instead of evaporate. This gives the meat an enormously rich flavour. I'm thinking of ways to describe it, but I'm kind of lost for words. It's like damp, but in the best kind of way. Quality is 10/10, and, in comparison, I'd now rate an iron cast as a 6 tops.
Hope I can help someone to just get up and get one!
P.s. I've got a princess model of about €60
I’m pretty excited, looking forward to trying something new. Hope this works!
I want to ask if people are also considering buying more direct current (DC) appliances and moving away from AC appliances? Would that not alter the solar system installation making it overall more efficient, reduce the need for the inverters in the design? I live in Europe and have 220 vac 50Hz, a low voltage DC home would inherently be safer with less losses.
Are appliance manufacturers not seeing this and increasing availability of DC powered appliance? I have installed LED lights and each comes with a AC to DC converter concomitant with all its losses and complexity.

So I'm looking at renovating our kitchen and want to upgrade the builder-grade appliances we have. I would like to go upmarket but getting straight information on brands like Thermador, Wolf, Jennair, etc. is ridiculous. You basically have the appliance dealers claiming that these are all incredible in every way and consumer reports/Houzz forums, etc. claiming that they are all crap with nothing but problems. If I'm honest I want nicer appliances about 75% because it will make cooking more fun and convenient and 25% because it will give the kitchen that "wow" factor. Are high-end appliances just more likely to get negative reviews because people spent so much on them so they need to vent when things go wrong or are they really that unreliable when compared to mid market or lower end appliances? It's hard to believe. Anyone on here cook on Thermador, Wolf, Viking, etc.? What do you think?
I have had an awful experience with ordering appliances through costco. I finally had enough and requested a return at the beginning of June after continuing to have issues 7 MONTHS after I ordered. I have been told three times someone would contact me to arrange the pick up. I have purchased new appliances AND had them installed by Best Buy two weeks ago and yet Costco hasn't even contacted me to tell me when they will come.
Customer service escalated my case and I was promised I'd be contacted within 2-3 days by a supervisor. I asked for an alternate phone number and they told me there wasn't one. This was two weeks ago and I haven't heard from them. Now I have a refrigerator, microwave, stove, and dishwasher sitting in the middle of my 800 sq ft condo. There's no where to put them. The amount of times I've smacked the things with my elbow or stubbed my toe is ridiculous. I've been trying for a week every single day to get through and it's always 80+ minute hold time.

Lesson learned here.
I made several incorrect assumptions due to naivety of 240V washer/dryer. We had the dryer "go" earlier in the month. I stopped the dryer due to a burning smell we assumed had originated at the dryer, so assumed that the issue was with the dryer. The dryer then did not start again. I did inspect the fuse box (old style fuses), but due to how the face was put on the box I could not pull the actual fuse for the 240v. Still, since the dryer had been running, and the washer was still running, I assumed the issue was with the dryer.
This was obviously not the case. Once the new appliances were hooked up, they did not start. So, in prep for an electrician to investigate I started to chip off the paint to set the face plate properly to allow the fuse to be pulled. And, of course, one fuse had gone.
I just did not understand how 240v was wired up to know that the washer (presumably 120v, that was plugged in to the dryer) could still be working and the dryer not working.... keep reading on reddit ➡
So our LG fridge stopped cooling Mid June. After researching fixes and going through LG for warranty(a whole different nightmare), I decide to buy a Whirlpool via Costco on 6/20. They gave a approximate date of 6/27. A week later, not too shabby I thought....wrong. As of today, I still have not received any communication from Costco regarding delivery. I searched other stores and saw a Maytag on discount from Lowe’s. It’s about $120 cheaper then any other competitor. Abt also had same model for $120 more. Before going through with Lowe’s, I chatted with a live person on Abt and on the spot, they actually beat Lowe’s price by $50. And I also now have a concrete delivery date of 7/31. Needless to say I placed my order right away.
The main reason to go with Costco is you get a min 4 years warranty if you paid with the Costco visa. I paid with the same Costco card and still receive 3 years warranty total buying elsewhere. What good is the warranty perk if they cannot deliver?... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just found this subreddit and I have a question. What appliances does everyone use in their house? I'm looking for suggestions on everything from toasters and griddles to ovens and cook tops as these are the most difficult to find for large families.
Washer and dryers I ended up buying commercial size ones to accommodate and fridges come in very large sizes that I have yet to purchase.
I find anything that says family size is usually for a family of three and not 8.
We (me, 26f, partner 25m) have been living in our new privately rented property (2 bed bungalow, one bathroom one toilet) for about 10 months.
Our house doesn't have gas, so everything is electrical. There was an initial mess up with the storage heaters while we trialed them to find cost and the energy company despite us giving readings every month, got our bill wrong for the first 4 months, so when someone actually sorted it, we got a £600 bill. Annoying, not what we intended, but sure we accept that there was an error and we owe this.
The part that's really frying my brain is that after turning all our storage heaters off at the fuse... Our electricity bill for the past 2 months has been £200.
I'm sure that to some of you that's a reasonable bill, except we have lived in 2 rental properties previously and our electricity bill was £40 a month.

I am not new to servers, networking or hardware, but I am new to this side of things.
I have 60 WANs of differing types, but mostly consumer DSL and static IP broadband services. I need to keep all 60 and want to use all 60.
At first I was led to believe that I can use a Layer 2 switch to physically connect each WAN to (like a Cisco Nexus 3064T--but with sufficient ports) and then trunk it to my firewall appliance. The firewall appliance will then allow me to manage all 60 WANs through SD-WAN. This was my initial fairy tale.
However, another engineer told me I need to use a WAN aggregator (not a Cisco 3064T) ahead of the firewall. He mentioned A10 and F5 as two brands to look into, which left my head in a bit of a spin, so I need to ask whether an aggregator really is necessary for this to work period or is it just a way to reduce the count of WANs I expect the firewall to manage?
Thanks in advance to any input you can provide!
Things like curry pastes often taste better out of a mortar and pestle than a blender or food processor. Noodle aficionados claim hand rolled pasta tops machine rolled every time.
But on the other hand, things like the stand mixer seem to enhance breads and baked goods with no loss in quality.

We just had a three-year old washing machine die, and the repair was about the same price as a replacement washer. We just opted to buy a new one. Before we ordered the new washer, when I was trying to diagnose the problem with the dead washer, I found a number of used parts from this same washer for sale online. So before I had the old washer hauled away I took off a few parts and listed them for sale on eBay, and so far I’ve made about $100 on used parts. It’s a great way to save a few bucks when you have no choice but to replace a dead appliance. It may not work for every appliance, but if you have some tools and the time, it’s worth checking it out before trashing your dead appliance.
If you throw whole-ass appliance boxes in the trash chute and leave it clogged, your mom’s a ho.
Edit: Okay, so it’s probably delivery drivers and not Appliances associates. But still, if you throw an appliance box in the trash chute and leave it stuck in there, your mom’s a ho.

I'm looking for local shops that sell second hand/ affordable appliances like fridge, cooker and washing machine
I wont be able to collect the item so the place needs to offer delivery
I recently moved out - on good terms - from my friend's spare room, to get a bigger place closer to work (among other reasons). Now, she wants to deduct money from my security deposit for signs of use on one of the shared kitchen appliances - scratches on the plastic food processor. She wants to charge a third of the cost of what it was new (there were three of us using it). It's not broken, just cosmetic damage resulting from normal use. AITA for thinking this is unreasonable?
I wound up having to buy a new refrigerator unexpectedly (which was its own s*it show and still have an outstanding property damage insurance claim with the appliance dealer/their delivery company but I digress)
Anyway, after the appliance was fully delivered I opened the refrigerator door and taped to one of the shelves was a "By using this refrigerator you agree that any claims ... resolved solely by arbitration in an individual capacity..." notice
Not that I have (or anticipate having) a claim against the manufacturer... but is this kind of "ambush arbitration" agreement enforceable?
I know shrink-wrap/click-wrap agreements are generally enforceable but the difference is those you have notice of the presence of the agreement before you've purchased and begun using the product/software, you can factor that agreement as part of the exchange of consideration and can investigate the agreement further, or relatively easily return to the status quo ante if you don't find the terms... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hello all, vCenter 6.7, VSAN, single cluster, 5 ESXi hosts
I am trying to enable EVC for an upcoming migration to a new cluster. I found this KB article
The problem is vCenter is running on an appliance within vCenter, so I cannot 'shut down all VMs' in the cluster. I tried shutting down all VMs except vCenter appliance but it failed because not all VMs were powered down.
I opened a ticket with VMWare and the agent is telling me I have to get some sort of shared storage, stand up a new cluster and migrate the vCenter appliance to the new cluster, then I can enable it. That is not really do-able.. have any of you come up with another way of achieving this or any ideas?

So please, if you intend to comment on quality, or your personal feelings toward the brand, or attack me personally as if I'm championing the brand, just don't. Please.

The problem is this: we a have a firewall appliance (3rd party firewall based on x86 with a custom smoothwall/customized linux distribution,4 core Atom c2558 processor and 4 GB Ram) that sometimes stop to autenticate AD users with the http proxy (that is squid):
At random times, users start to get the authentication windows, squid is connected to AD, if you try to insert your user credential they don't get validated.
The appliance show abornmal squid and winbindd cpu consume (for example, on normal operation the 5min avg is 1.5, during the problem is 8.5).
Firewall tech support told us that the appliance is too small and they try to sell the bigger one becouse they see 1.800.000 connections to Autodesk update server during the day (we have only 18 cad workstations) and this lead to squid crash.

I'm installing our new Samsung dishwasher this weekend and the manual specifically calls for "Jacketed 12-2 power cord" which of course was not supplied with the unit... For the last few days I've been looking for such a thing in ready-to-use format, but I haven't found it. What I have found is plenty of 12-3, 14-3, 16-2, etc.
It's on a 20A circuit, so I know it needs to be 12 Ga, but is there an issue with using 12-3 instead of 12-2? Could I just cap the red and leave it loose?

Don’t buy major appliances (refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, ranges, stoves) that have just been released.
Wait until the specific product/build has been on the market long enough for the warranties to expire.
Oftentimes brand new, just released, cutting edge products will get 100% five-star reviews in the beginning, which then tank after a year or two, because they’re only built to last during the warranty period.
If you must buy an untested brand new home appliance, purchase the longest in-home warranty you can afford, directly from the seller (like Home Depot or Lowe’s), and make sure it covers unlimited in-home repairs during the process.
A Lemon Clause is great because it replaces the item (at their cost), after a certain number of repairs per period.
For food storage products, Food Replacement Cost clauses are useful because sometimes a refrigerator/freezer can contain hundreds of dollars of food, and getting a check to replace that food is helpful.

Right now I have a tetris-like stack of small kitchen appliance and electronics boxes in my garage (think instant pot, coffeemaker, laptop, tablet, phone boxes).

UPDATE #2: My wife and I committed to Plessers.com. we went to home depot and they had us at 4500. I went to Plessers website and I was at 3700ish. THEY GIVE A REBATE FOR TAX.

What exactly does it monitor? My entire private home network or only connected devices to the appliance?
Should it be connected directly to the modem, or through my router first?
