Re: DIY home wiring, bad idea?
Engineers should be required to complete an apprenticeship in their field of study prior to receiving their license. I.E., an EE should have to serve time as an electrician or electronics repair tech. An ME should have to learn how to repair engines or be a plumber or something like that. A structural engineer should have to build houses. A civil engineer should have to run a #2 shovel on a road project.

The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
