How to insulate register boot?


you have to understand the dynamics involved. the goal is not just insulation, but intactness of the vapour barrier. you can have all the insulation in the world and it will do you no good if you allow nice warm air to enter into the insulation pocket. the warm air cools as it permeates the batt and eventually starts to cool. once it drops to the dewpoint of the air, the trapped moisture in the air precipitates out and now you have wet insulation. when the cold air in the uninsulated space reaches the wet insulation you are going to get ice. then the cycle repeats, ever closer to your inner heated space. if it warms up, the ice melts and now you have wet insulation. gravity and capillary action draw the moisture through the batt and eventually you have moisture up against the wood and drywall. if you use batting and don't ensure the air barrier is intact, you will make a problem for yourself. you can do it with batting and very careful use of sealing tape and caulking. why bother?...

The county inspector dinged me on a couple of things for my bonus room renovation. One of these things is wrapping the register boots (endpoints) in insulation. I've seen registers with this insulation already installed, but he mentions that batted insulation is fine. The reason for this is to supposedly reduce the condensation leaking outside the boot and onto the wooden frame, joist, and sheetrock. Any idea what you folks do to accomplish this? I have some old R-6 flex duct insulation and some foil tape and was planning to wrap the batt around the boot and tape it up with foil tape.

its a little hard to tell what you have going on. i am assuming these are ceiling hot air vents in a room below an insulated attic space. use 2" styrofoam board to build a "form" aroun the register termination (tighter the better to use as little foam as possible). you want to do it so the adjacent joists...

Precaution; make sure the boot is fastened all around the perimeter of the hole or you will blow it in and have a heck of a mess of foam. All the joints (including unused elbows) should be taped/mastic or just sticky taped, then insulated with at least (code minimum) duct insulation R-6-8 in your unconditioned crawlspace. IMO, just wrap/tape some duct FG insulation around it- if accessible, when a lot of them are on outside walls (close clearances)- are not, then SPF works better. You could also build a rigid foam box around it first, then SPF from a can.

If you don't fasten it well, the tin will flex stopping the register grate from fitting inside... and it will ride-up and sit higher than before your work.

A house without enough insulation is like a kid without a coat—bound to get cold. So if you’re sick of drafts and high heating bills, it might be time to help your home “bundle up” by learning how to insulate an attic (or add more of the stuff to bulk up).

How much does it cost to insulate an attic?

On average, hiring a contractor to install insulation onto the floor of your attic will cost $1,343. On the bright side, you can expect a whopping return on this investment, because home buyers are willing to pay an average of $1,446 extra for your home if your attic is insulated.

In other words, you get back all that money (and then some) once you sell! If you want to save even more money, you can go the DIY route where you pay only for materials, which will cost around $580 for 500 square feet of space.

Note: If your attic already has a floor and walls, the process is more complicated (i.e., you’ll probably want to hire a pro to spray foam insulation...

If your system is no longer bootable due to a virus attack or for some other reason (e.g. after you change SATA controller mode in BIOS or Motherboard) then you have to use an offline registry editor to make the appropriate modifications in Windows registry in order to boot Windows normally. This article contains detailed instructions on how to load and edit Windows registry without booting to Windows (Unbootable Windows system).

How to modify Windows Registry OFFLINE

To modify Registry offline you need an OFFLINE registry Editor. For this task, I prefer to use two offline registry editors. One of them can be found in the Windows Recovery Environment on any Windows 7 or Windows Vista installation DVD and the other can be found on the Hiren's boot CD. So let's start.

Method 1: Modify Registry OFFLINE using Windows Installation DVD.

1. Place the Windows Installation DVD on your CD/DVD drive and boot your computer from the Windows installation...

I actually just learned the difference last night from Taylor's book. Here is an excerpt about it:

“After all providers have been registered, they are “booted”. This will fire the boot method on each provider. A common mistake when using service providers is attempting to use the services provided by another provider in the register method. Since, within the register method, we have no gurantee all other providers have been loaded, the service you are trying to use may not be available yet. So, service provider code that uses other services should always live in the boot method. The register method should only be used for, you guessed it, registering services with the container. Within the boot method, you may do whatever you like: register event listeners, include a routes file, register filters, or anything else you can imagine.”

So the register one is just for binding. The boot one is to actually trigger something to...

Many years ago when I was still a novice in computers, I accidentally disabled userinit.exe from startup thinking that it was spyware using the SysInternals tool Autoruns. When I restarted the computer, I was unable to login to Windows. Whenever I select the user from the list, it logged in and automatic logged off. I had a really tough time trying to restore userinit.exe back to the Windows startup list as it wasn’t easy accessing and editing the registry when Windows is unbootable. Autoruns is much smarter now because when you uncheck userinit.exe from Logon, it will warn you that “disabling or deleting Userinit will prevent users from logging on”.

In the end I managed to fix the problem but couldn’t exactly remember how I did it because I tried many many ways and I got lucky. I eventually found a real solution on how to edit Windows registry key values without booting into Windows. This is also useful for editing malicious startup items such as rogueware and ransomware....

I followed this documentation: and configured my Spring Boot application as following:

spring: cloud: consul: enabled: true host: consul.domain.tld port: 443 discovery: instanceId: ${}:${spring.application.instance_id:${random.value}} fail-fast: false

When deployed to Cloud Foundry, the app can connect to Consul and tries to register, but Consul's "service check" instantly fails.

Reading what is configured, I get the following instances in the Spring Boot app:

list = discoveryClient.getInstances("myApp"); list.get(0) => "http://05c81764-18a4-4905-41a8-b5b8:8080"

I see that the UUID most likely is the instanceId generated by Cloud Foundry. Of course, that URL doesn't work, neither within Cloud Foundry nor for an external Consul server trying to check the service's health periodically.

How do I have to configure my Spring Boot app correctly in order to...

Once upon a time, buying winter boots was pretty simple. You didn't have a lot of choices, and what was available was frequently warm enough for an arctic expedition and weighed just slightly less than a heavy ball and chain. times change.

Today, there are enough winter and snow boot varieties available to fill a sizable shoe store all by itself. Unfortunately, along with all these choices has come a bewildering array of insulation types, much of which is couched in rather obscure but important sounding terminology. So let's cut through the jargon, and get to what is important—what type of insulation you want in a boot and how much you need.

Since this page is rather lengthy, here are quick links to all sub-sections:

What Isn’t Insulation

There’s lots of terminology slung around today when shopping for winter boots. With all this terminology floating around, it is often difficult to determine precisely "what is what." In particular, I’ve...

A friend of mine ran into a issue recently after making changes to the Windows Registry. The computer would not boot anymore and since there was no System Restore or backup available to restore the system to a previous state, another solution had to be found.

While re-installing the same operating system would have worked, it is often not an efficient solution.

Before you consider doing that, you may want to try other options first. You may use various tools for instance to edit the Windows Registry without loading Windows first.

You’d boot the computer using a special bootable solution, either on CD/DVD or USB Flash drive to use the Registry tools provided to fix the issue on the affected system.

One program that you can use for that task is Hiren’s Boot CD ISO. Download the most recent version of the Boot CD, at the time of writing 15.2, from the developer website. It comes as a zip package that you need to extract to your system. Once done, execute...

Start administrator's command prompt:

Open start menu Type cmd Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter

Fire up the utility called diskpart. Literally, enter diskpart command.

DISKPART> prompt should appear.

Now in diskpart prompt type: LIST DISK and it will list all your Disks including your USB drive. Note the Disk number.

Type the SELECT DISK , where is your USB disk number. Just look for right capacity of the drive.

List all partitions on it: LIST PARTITION.

For every one of them type: SELECT PARTITION , where is the number of partition and DELETE PARTITION.

Now check there aren't any of partitions left: LIST PARTITION. If there aren't any create one partition:

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY - If it asks about size, just use the default value - it is the max capacity

FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK - I think USB flash drives use FAT32 filesystem by default. You could use NTFS instead too.

Some winter boots are tall and bulky like those made by Sorel. Others look just like a regular hiking boot. What is best for you? It depends on the activity. Are you using them mostly to ice fish or shovel the driveway? Or maybe you like to snowshoe. The following information will help you keep your feet warm and dry in winter.

Note that this article does not discuss plastic or leather boots used for ice climbing or winter mountaineering. Click here for more information on How to Choose Mountaineering Boots.


Insulated snow boots often stand 11 or 12 inches high. The taller the boot, the warmer it will keep your ankles. They will also let in less snow as you hike or snowshoe. However, the taller and bulkier the boot, the heavier it is. 12 inch boots are fine for short walks, but a five mile hike will be extremely fatiguing. Your best option in this case may be an insulated hiking boot, maybe 7 or 8 inches tall.
