Filling out permit applications, and entering the same information, on form, then folder, and at times also the construction form, Now we really don't need to enter all that information more then once, can someone simplify the permit application and process, it dosen't look like rocket science.

Low voltage alarm/phone/data etc. cables spider-webbed across the ceiling void above suspended ceilings, in every which direction, draped from conduit to duct, pulled tight as a guitar string, or just laid across the tiles and grid.

Always tightest right over the only tile accessible in a five tile radius. Sheesh.

What were we talking about?

Top of the evening, my friend. Yes, you are 100% right, info written at least 3 times, on different forms, name, address, phone, block-lot, etc.

Good thing we are a part of the "paperless society" HA!

OK, you fill it out 3 times, I read it, initial/date & ck a box; then do the same on the folder, then write it ALL down on a log sheet, then enter the approval in the PC, then give it to others (Fire/Bldg/Plumb) and then it goes to the "girls" who write/log/data enter & call the responsible person. NOW, after as many inspections as it takes, more writing, logs & PC entries, it all goes back to the 'girls' for a CO/CA (More forms)

Top it off with a plan review problem, generating aphone call or five, more writing, or a notice of non-compliance.

A lot of the guys here do not know the "paper" NJ system. How about the guys in LA??? Permits over the internet!! Saw it in ECN Mag this week

Happy Holidays & Be Safe

On of my all time pet peeves is when professional lektrishuns refer to receptacles as "plugs."

It would have to be ... A customer who is or resembles a snobish housewive with no construction knowledge and has a demanding desire for a huge castle for little or no money. Or would it be that supply house guy that puts the wrong stuff in the box? Hmmm

DIY (or is it DYI- Do Yourself In) websites that give poor and sometimes outright dangerous advice.

Finding that someone used the device terminals to rely on multiwire (Edison) circuit neutral integrity.

Cable found in metal boxes without clamp(s) to hold it (them) secure.

Surveyors who think they know something about electr... oops, I'd better shut up [Linked Image].


No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.
