[TechAssist] Re: keeping tips from Google

I have posted fixes in the past and will continue to do so in the
future.  My only concern was this tip (see bottom of posts) was so
simple that I thought that business would be lost by other techs since
the internet is available to everyone.  I have posted the tip under the
original heading about "RCA motel set".  Sorry for the disturbance.

I agree, Jim.

This has been discussed at-nausium before.  Don't post a repair?  OK,
don't ask for assistance.  I have too much else to worry about than who
reads the posts.
