RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

These are the surge protector for a land line corded phone. The line from the wall goes in and then another out to the phone attachment. This protects your land line phone from a surge. Gdetrailer, I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say that yes, I do have a smart phone, but crippling effects from a stroke make it difficult to use as a camera. 'nuff said. I did some Googling, which I should have done originally, and located sites related to the brand name, but wasn't successful in finding anything regarding my unit. It may be a discontinued model.At any rate, I'll just leave things the way they are and perhaps eventually purchase a newer device which I can understand. Anyhow, many thanks to all who responded. Now let's CLOSE THIS DISCUSSION. .

RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

Can you post a picture of it? Due to a handicap, I'm not able to do that.

RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

photo? manufacturer name/model #? any markings? Good question. Markings have pretty much worn away, but it appears to be "CyberPOWER". Perhaps I'll do what I should have done in the 1st place, Google it. I'll report if I find anything.

RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

Could it be a reset in case of overload? No. Otherwise it would say "Reset". Besides, I've never seen a reset button as a slide switch. Thanks anyway.

RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

Are you sure that the In/Out labels apply to the switch and not to TV cable or network input/output jacks? Could that switch just be a breaker reset or regular power switch? Here's a surge suppressor with In/Out labels for cable and network: https://i.imgur.com/MLGouCm.jpg No, my device is nothing like that. There is no provision for network connections. It only supplies power to standard 120 VAC 3-prong plugs.

RE: What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

Does it actually say "IN" and "OUT" or "1" and "0"... It's definitely IN-OUT.It's not a breaker, but definitely only a slide switch.There is also an ON-OFF rocker switch on the device besides the slide switch.

What does tis switch do on multiple AC socket strip?

I've been using this multiple socket strip (5 sockets) with built in surge suppression for some years and never figured out what is the purpose of a switch found on the side of strip. It's a slide switch labeled In-Out. It's been in the OUT position since I've owned it, and I have no clue what it does. Keep in mind this device is also a surge suppressor. Any ideas what it's for and which is the correct position of the switch? Thanks.

RE: Junk Food Breakfast Cereals

Talk about corn syrup Dad's favorite breakfast treat Place a slice of Wonder White Bread on a plate (had to be Wonder) Pour Karo Corn Syrup over the slice of bread (had to be Karo) Then pour Eagle's Condensed Milk over the the bread/syrup (had to be Eagles) Even as a kid it was TOO SWEET for me A 90 yr old lady I used to know told me she would eat something called milk toast for breakfast. I don’t remember how it was made, but obviously consisted of toast soaked in milk. I don’t know what type of sweetening was used.

RE: Junk Food Breakfast Cereals

I also enjoy my homemade whole wheat pancakes and real maple syrup. I do go easy on the syrup, though. I won’t use the artificial syrups that are available. They’re mostly corn syrup and artificial flavor. The extra cost of the real product is worth it to me.

RE: Brain Teaser

According to Merriam-WWebster "vivific" has been in use since at least 1551. vivific Thanks for the research. My spell checker disagreed. :B

RE: Brain Teaser

LOL. It appears that we have some bright people here. Yes, this poem has to do with an object that's light years away. I didn't think anyone would figure it out so fast. Although some of the words don't exactly match definitions, poetic license needed to be employed to make it rhyme.;) .

Brain Teaser

I’m going to test out my fellow Forum members and see who can decipher this well known recitation. I’ll give clues later if no one gets it: “Scintillate scintillate, globule vilvific Fain would I fathom thy nature specific Distantly poised in the ether capacious Glittering like a gem carbonaceous” Most of the words are found in a dictionary, with the possible exception of “vivific”

RE: Manufacturing and Marketing Genius

I sat an old lawn mower on the curb with a free sign on it. Sat for two days, no takers. Changed the sign to $20 and someone knocked on the door and offered $10. SOLD: Thad reminds me of a story I read years ago A certain book publisher offered children’s books for 25 cents each, and they weren’t selling well. They jacked the price up to 29 cents, and were more successful. I guess there’s some sort of psychology behind that decision. There’s a reason that many products have prices that end in 9, a good example is gasoline. $2.29.99/gallon. Why not just round it off to $2.30? :R

Yes, old biscuit, the Bob’s Red Mill hot cereals are some of my favorites, too.

RE: Halloween Or Not

I haven't bothered with it for many years. The celebration has unsavory origins. Not unsavory at all 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed. It was a celebration of remembrance of those departed. Our neighborhood is comprised of older no children at home folks One reason we bought in this neighborhood We have been here 7 yrs.....1st year I decorated the front yard with carved pumpkins, scare crows, solar lights and a ghost. Ended up with bags of unopened candy that I took down to community center After that didn't bother with it again Neighborhood is off the beaten path and 'drops off do not occur' So no Trick or Treat With all due respect, old biscuit, I’ve learned differently. The origins began with ancient Celts or Druids,and from what I remember, was called Samhain. I’d need to research that again, though. Anyhow,everyone is free to follow whAt they wish. As for me, I don’t follow the crowd.

RE: I've Rediscovered Butter

"Real butter", from a farmer, without preservatives, will turn rancid if left out, and, in fact, will turn rancid if refrigerated, albeit after a longer period of time. Having grown up with "home made" butter I have seen it turn nasty. I wonder what people in the past did with fresh butter before refrigeration, or even milk for that matter? Just curious. :@
