Ok just had the site committee quote me minimum minimum post count for Pro Tech registration.
My opinion is that's a high bar, for a site without an internal search function - unless I missed it.
About a year ago, I found this site via Google. Just minutes before this post did a Google site search for 'R-22 jug tare' and the first hit was this site for an R-12 post dated in 2005:
I'm 56 and HVAC/R is the first skilled trade I've gotten formal education in, AAS. Other trade experience was O-J-T in carpentry and some electrical slack time work, with up to 480 VAC. I also have worked on high/low AC/DC voltage circuitry in the military radar power production/signal processing. I've dabbled a bit in computers to the extent of a CompTIA A+ cert back in the DOS/Windows days and worked as hardware tech a couple years. I have a couple different programming languages a step beyond the intro's, in the classroom, along with some networking coursework. I build my own pc's and my long term goal is to be capable of building my own heating/cooling/ventilation system, with the same ease.Originally Posted by fjbill
I've used the internet since the mid-'90's as a remote library, with a gradually improving through the years, technical reference department. My personal interests include energy/oil issues ( part of my HVAC choice ) such as the 'reserve replacement problem' and the expected implications to the HVAC field, for example integrated Heat Pump/Hot Water, CO2 as residential refrigerant, and heat/power co-generation technology.
My new career employment has been a challenge at this time, circa 2008, with my advanced age coupled with an unusual personalty type per the larger population and, I suspect even more so, in skilled trades population, as a Meyers-Briggs INTJ.
I am here, this evening, as part of my continuing education in which I would like to learn how to calculate tare/gross values for a 30#at the recommended 80% fill level, R-22 jug. I went to RSES first and then went to another Google search to find this site listed as stated above.
Is this the sort of information that is public knowledge in cyberspace ? Anyone have a link to this sort of info ? I'm always looking for technical sources to bookmark :-)
See 'ya !
