We've had the pigslop award for some time now.

But what are the best tips you have received on this forum?

I am going to edit this post as new people give me life-changing advice. Apologies to anyone I have overlooked.

These awards recognise excellence in plumbing, electrical, HVAC and remodelling for those that have made a significant contribution to my greater awareness and understanding of these issues.

My current nominees are:

Not that it really matters, but I believe it was me that recommended the hammer drill first. For what it's worth, Grizzly Industrial sells them now for $75 and than includes an assortment of chisels and bits. These are not heavy duty 8 hours a day demolition tools, but very handy for drill or chipping concrete.
