This site, is the for runner of the two sites. This one is the original and the one that fathered the newer site.

This site was slated to be destroyed, until so many of us protested and fought for this one and they decided to keep this one and make the new one.

Some posters and members felt that a site that is categorized into such areas as: plumbing, carpentry, electricity, and etc would be easier to answer and decide who on the board would take that question. Come to find out, in my opinion, the newer site takes much more scrolling and surfing around to find a post and to answer that post.

This site dumps all facets of a project into one big undivided board. I, and many others, like this method, because you can scroll down and see any post you want and answer that one or not. Many of our members are multi facited, meaning they can take on many categories of questions. This just makes things much easier.

Originally the name of this site was then when the other site came to be, we had a contest and the winner chose, fix it fore'm. That is why on the other cover page site, you will see both sites.

hope that this helps.
