i've seen a lot of threads about growing herbs/veggies indoor in the last few weeks, and since i'm doing it for over 2 years now, i thought i'd post what i know
840 and 865 fluorescent tubes 1:1 Mixed
only 840 or 865 would work too, but you'll get the best spectrum with both mixed
min:10k Lux, optimal: 20K
additional: reflectors(+100-200% lumen) and black and white foil
flourescent tubes are about 90-95 lumen per watt, so they are quite efficient
plants need red and blue light to grow. about 70-80% red and 30-20% blue light.
sunlight is about 5.5K Kelvin. the 4K lights has more red, the 6.5K more blue. both of them
mixed will give you a good spectrum of light.
normal gardening soil mixed with ~30% seramis/perlit to drain excessiv water
for plants that like a really dry climate add 20-30% sand
i use 3-5 liter pots. the bigger the pots, the bigger the plant gets, and you want compact
chilis/veggies: 1 plant per pot
Herbs like parsley, basil, coriander, etc: 3-4 plants per pot
Oregano, Sage, tarragon, mint: 1 plant per pot

I needed a mask. I acquired a mask. Chose that mask due to wide usage. Okay, great.
Problem is that I'd like to be able to actually talk and be understood while doing so while wearing said mask. Mask is as shown in the picture. It has a simple strap to secure the mask which is located about a centimeter below eye level.
So, /diy/, what material can I use to get the mask to comfortably sit up off my cheek bones enough to be clearly understood when speaking and stop moving so much when I try to talk? Right now it sits on the base of my nose and my chin, and it's quite unbalanced. It's rather irritating, in more ways than one.

Hello, everyone. No clue where to ask this question, so I may as well as here.
Basically, my mom and I are leaving my dad and headed off to Texas to live at my grandma's old place. She isn't there most of the time and it's free rent. However, the biggest thing for me is going to be finding a job, since my dad pretty much taught me that I was too good for that. (What a prick)
Someone from /r9k/ recommended getting in contact with LIUNA, a construction worker's union. (While the idea of hard, physical labor isn't very enticing, the idea of supposedly $15/h for apprenticeship is). In looking on the map, there's an office fairly close for pipeline workers.
Does anyone know about what all goes into pipeline work? Should I bother looking into it?
