    TV buying: generic 7.5k vs 13k (MI LED TV Pro 4a)

    Room is 15'x8' wide. Stuff should be visible very close and 15' away? Cost and longevity is a factor: need to buy a TV for a small classroom - It must have USB/menu-select. This is the primary means of screening lessons so does anyone have any in-depth understanding of the manufacturing...

    WTB Asian manufactured Foil ESD Bags - no holes, kinks - could someone point me to a source?

    So any sort of Foil based ESD bag - I scoured the net and called dealers - I simply can't find any Asian ESD bags.. it's all US stuff with huge duties and what not and super expensive to boot! I'm okay with the high duty but I'd prefer an Asian supplier.

    (Edited to add this: You will note that my list contains Glacial Acetic Acid at 90%+ concentration - if the Chemist had sold me some, I'd be dead by now. So.. it's a list I could never actually use because of my lack of knowledge on how dangerous some of this stuff is. PAY THE EXTRA for...

    Gardening: what do I do with Coconut Husks?

    So I made a lot of stupid mistakes that were very painful to recover from: 1. I put pots on the terrace and filled it with mud - stains the wall, low yield. 2. I put Zinc sheets+pots in the mud as a barrier - attracts rats - mud binds to everything, leaves get in - difficult to sweep. Now I'm...

    What's the average age of people on TechEnclave and Erodov - how come Indian colleges don't have their own board/forum?

    So I was wondering because I had a basic question in Chemistry and I didn't want to use r/Chemistry (reddit) or Freenode. Is there a board frequented by Indian students (that is fully functional and popular) where you could ask questions and such? I am guessing the bandwidth costs would be a...

    Does anyone use inks from this company? I've looked on ebay and flipkart but their products are not listed which is odd.
