This picture shows "KNAUF-TIAN" printed on the back of some drywall in an attic I was in.  This is one of the destructive products called "Chinese Drywall"


Here you'll see aluminum wire branch circuits in the right side of a FPE Stab-Loc panel.  You can see the four aluminum circuits between several copper circuits.

Now I'm sure most people don't hear this very often much less say it, but, I can't believe how quick the Department of Business and Professional Regulation of Florida moves these days!  I suppose I just wanted to publicly acknowledge the state for it's improvement in efficiency and speed.  They keep saying they are getting better, leaner/meaner and faster, and they really are.

 Last month I finally got around to submitting my granfathering application to the state for my state home inspector license.  The deadline to submit it was March 1st 2011 so I supposed I'd waited long enough and I'm really glad I did.  The reason I was putting it off was a very good one and it actually paid off.  The state originally wanted us to submit 120 inspection reports to prove the required 3 years of experience.  So several months back I pulled all 120 inspections from 2000-2001 because back then my inspections were much shorter.  However even with the "shorter" inspections, I was still gonna have to print out 3-4 reams of paper and ship them off to the state!  So I figured I'd take a small gamble and wait for the state to realize they can't possibly follow through with that requirement, as they would have rooms filled with useless inspections that they couldn't possibly ever go through, and I'm glad to say it worked.  Instead of 120 full reports, they changed it to a LIST of 120 home inspections, what a huge difference! Only took me an hour and 10 sheets of paper, I already had my list, just had to type it up.  

So I sent off my application double, triple, and quadruple checked...and I had my state license 3 days after I sent it!  I'm not sure how the heck they got it done that quick, but they did and I couldn't be happier with my latest interaction with Florida's DBPR.   Now I have another state license to maintain, how fun.  Well at least it seems maintaining that license has gotten much easier with the greatly improved DBPR.
