What the world needs now…

Category: General InfoLori @ 1:51 pm Comments (22)

Some of you are undoubtedly wondering where I am and why I haven’t answered all of your emails.  You may be thinking that I won the lottery or fell in front of a bus and that there will never again be a WW, FF, QQ, or anything else posted on iDigHardware.  Imagine a world without iDH!

I have been diagnosed with bronchitis AND walking pneumonia…you may not know that someone could get both of those things simultaneously, but this is my second time (I’m an overachiever – haha!).  So – I’m sorry – I have A LOT of emails to catch up on, but I have been really, REALLY sick.  I hope you can be patient with the patient (me).

And P.S. I DO wash my hands regularly.

    Sounds terrible. Hope you feel better soon. Oh…. and love the cartoon, although the closer illustration could be a bit more accurate. Pull side PA arm?

    • Jess the door closer doctor says:

      I guess could be worse, once got a question from someone with a top jamb install on pull side,

      Only way I have not YET find a install error, closer vertically mounted.

    Hope you feel better Lori, having one of those sicknesses is already painful enough, but you having both. Stay strong and take your meds!

    I hope you feel better soon.
    Your website is invaluable. I have been spreading the word for years. Still, I am always surprised by how many hardware professionals haven’t heard of you, or are not availing themselves after I have told them.

    I feel for you Lori I also had the same diagnosis a few years back. I was working a lot of overtime to catch up on the building boom, while going thru a divorce, just months after my father died of Leukemia. It sounds like a lot and it was, but i did survive. So keep strong and get lots of rest. A few hot totties will not hurt either. We need you back, iDH is the thing i look for everyday. Best Wishes.

    Sorry to hear you’re sick. Hope you have a quick recovery.

    Great cartoon.
    I think there should be a new code (perhaps LS 101) that requires all restroom doors to be out-swinging (for sanitation reasons). I can’t stand an in-swing door to a restroom that has electric hand dryers only or towel dispensers that require a lever to feed the towels. It’s like a man-trap for those of us that are health conscious. The idea of going back into a stall for a wad of toilet paper is nasty and waiting for someone else to come in can sometimes take a very long time.

    Can you push for this and get it implemented at your next code meeting? Thanks!

    Lori –
    I hope you start feeling better and get well soon.
    This “washed” vs “unwashed” handle is so needed.
    I was recently in a men’s restroom when a guy came out of a toilet stall and exited without washing. Yuck!
    I always use my paper hand towel to open the door when able.
    When I’m in a rest room that has gone “paperless”, I’m truly perplexed.
    I think all restroom doors should open out, so the doors can be pushed open from within without having to touch the door.
    Get well!

    Hang in there, kiddo! Hunker down and get well. We’ll be here when you get back.

    I just recently saw a “foot pull” in a restroom mounted to the bottom of the door. BTW, I thought those illnesses were only reserved for us in the northern climates. Get well soon!

    • Jess the door closer doctor says:

      My first encounter with the foot pull was at a home depot, perfect luttle invention accept for not too helpful for people who have balance issues or used a wheelchair to enter the bathroom.

      The foot handle is under the name of “Step ‘n Pull”

      • LarryG says:

        Another highly questionable product with reasonably foreseeable liability issues. Several apparent, obvious code issues, in particular a lack of ADA compliance, and a failure to warning against installing on rated doors.

        Curious to note the manufacturer states they contacted DOL to verify ADA compliance. Not sure why as DOL has no ADA jurisdiction/enforcement authority.
