Elfa Weight Capacity / Elfa Weight Limit

This is ridiculously hard to find! It's also complex and difficult to follow/calculate, but extremely useful.

After loading up brand new Elfa shelves with row upon victorious row of books, transferred from old-fashioned, low to the ground, free standing home depot shelves, creaks and scary sounds began emanating from the wall near the top track as new books went on.

In the end though, if these estimates and specifications are accurate, they're under capacity.

• 125 lbs. per bracket
• 100 lbs. per lineal[sic] foot
• 500 lbs. distributed vertically between 24"
width of the vertical standards

Also very useful:
Keep in mind that paperback books weigh about 7 1/2 pounds per linear foot, hardcover books 13 pounds, magazines 26 pounds and reference works as much as 34 pounds per linear foot.

I'm not sure why this isn't easier to find online. It was extremely helpful to see it (click for full size image).

Introduction to Google Gaps

Welcome to Google Gaps.

This is where I'll be attempting to contribute to the world of information that should be searchable in google or other search engines but isn't. I'm not the most verbose and eloquent individual on the planet, so occasionally that's all you'll get. No frills, no ornamentation, just information. I'll be focusing on:

Technical problems and solutions.
Digitization of physical material (maps, etc.).
Store/bar/restaurant hours (always hard to find).
Directions or instructions for tasks that should be more accessible online.

Literally speaking, it's no fault of the search engines themselves, but the underlying information they index, so hopefully this blog will serve as a useful addendum to the sites making up the web itself.
