A few months back, my toilet started leaking from one of the bolts that connects the tank to the seat. It was only a tiny bit off and on, but it persisted no matter what I tried. I replaced the old bolts with something like pic <- And after a little more dripping, it finally stopped.
It's a few months later, and I go into the bathroom in the morning to find a small puddle and an unhealthy-looking red stain beneath the bolt-hole that gave me trouble before.
The posts i've read elsewhere are either - check the tank for cracks, or cram the hole full of caulking. What say you?

So, /diy/, welcome to the Blacksmithing thread to end all threads. Over a series of posts, I'm going to explain everything a beginner will need to know, and where to find anything else you may need to know.
This is just the intro post, a title page if you will. The first post will cover "google-fu", the second, anvils, the third, tools, and the fourth a basic forge.
I understand that there are many of us on here who have different schools of thought on Blacksmithing, however in this thread I hope to cover as many as I possibly can, from junk-smithing to using the correct steel for the correct job.
I welcome constructive criticism, but I would ask any mods or janitors lurking about to remove any shitposting.

The AC at my house stopped working a day or two ago. I noticed that the big-ass fan on the AC unit outside wasn't spinning, yet cold (or cold-ish... it's hard to tell) air was still seeping out of the vents (since then I turned it off because I heard something could be damaged it I let it run like that). I did some googling and found a bunch of videos claiming that I should replace a dual run capacitor, so I popped open the side panel to get a look. Sure enough, the cap is all inflated looking, so I checked the capacitance/voltage and ordered a replacement. How likely is it that replacing that will actually fix my problem? What else could it be, or is it pretty much guaranteed that if that cap looks like it's busted then that's my only issue?

ok so i really need some solid advice on how to get good promotion for my music. i have a lot of music, i do my own production, i compose my own stuff, record, engineer, the whole nine yards. only thing that is missing is some promotion, i live in a small town in south texas so it is really hard to build a fan base and all of that. i need to get my music out there, i need people to at least hear it at least once so they can decide if they like my work or not. so what are some steps i can do to achieve this?
