Best strings for thin/short wire frets?

2023.06.03 19:02 Raymont_Wavelength Best strings for thin/short wire frets?

I was wondering the general principle of how the thin/short/not-tall wire frets plays into string choice. When we press a string it makes a mini break angle over the fret. If the height of that fret is less (height) the angle is lower. Does a thicker or thinner string work better in that situation to help make a clean-sounding note? And what about string tension--some string manufacturers list tension per string. Some are somewhat higher tension, and then Santa Cruz make low-tension steel strings (does that help, or hurt). This is a 21-fret full-scale guitar.

2023.06.03 18:59 1biggoose Update: ‘09 DR650 bogging/dying. Fixed!

Original post, 8d ago
TLDR: it’s fixed now! I think. After some rides around town of similar distance to my previous test, no more engine dying. I rebuilt the carburetor and played with the fuel/air screw. Thanks for all the advice.
A question: what did I do in this process, which fixed my decel popping? Clean carb, tune aifuel and idle. I don’t get what would fix that! Unexpected and happy side effect.
Long post:
I have no prior experience with wrenching, but now I have some decent experience and lessons learned! What a learning process.
I started with the easy stuff: check gas, change spark plugs, service the air filter. Issue persists. Messed with the idle speed, same issue. At this point I don’t even know the air fuel screw exists or what it does, yes - I didn’t research enough.
So now I research how to rebuild and clean the carburetor. At this point, the tutorials I’m watching look nothing like my carburetor… wtf? Realize it’s a Mikuni TM40 flat side carb. Interesting, I knew the previous owner did some mods, but I didn’t realize the carb was different since I’ve never worked on it until now. Okay!
Ordered the rebuild kit, carb cleaner, and waited. Kit arrives, take the carb off (that was hard for me on its own….) I clean out the degraded gaskets, rubber, etc. jets don’t seem clogged, but I cleaned those out thoroughly anyway, the pilot jet is amazingly small. Carb seemed dirty, but not filthy. I really have no frame of reference for how things should look, and I really hope I can put this thing back together. Feeling discouraged since I’ve not found any smoking gun for my problem yet.
Reassemble everything, struggle BADLY getting my throttle cables inserted and tensioned correctly. Won’t go into details, but with this particular carb, on this particular frame, I wanted to just give up. I got it done though.
Idle screw and aifuel screw: I pretty much toss the spec values out the window here, since prev owner modded the DR a lot (new carb, drilled air box, myriad of other things). I basically played with both until I got a satisfactory result (watched videos online to compare the sound, I have no technometer).
End result: bike starts up quickly, with no choke now. nice! Loud decel popping is gone now…. Admittedly I kinda grew to like that, haha! I have to vomit this story here, since none of my friends or family like bikes, and they wouldn’t appreciate or relish this troubleshooting victory as much as you guys might.

2023.06.03 18:58 RagonTheDoge Am I over-complicating This? Please help! I really want to make this clean

The video is a large part of my current stream overlay I've worked on in Fusion. Although, I'm inexperienced and don't know how to make this any cleaner. Am I missing a simpler solution. For now I'm using individual particle emitters for every type of icon.
If you know any tutorials or guides that'd help I'd be really thankful!

This is my overlay right now
My full Fusion page. I've tried to keep it fairly clean

2023.06.03 18:57 rune_officixl type me please

• How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
I am 18 years old and nonbinary (agenderflux to be specific).
• Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow?
Yes, a lot of them so I'm just going to list them here. - Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - ADHD (Inattentive Type) - Social Anxiety - Moderate Depressive Episode (although I no longer agree with this diagnosis) - Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) - suspected Tourettes Syndrome - Complex PTSD - Maladaptive Daydreaming - Mixed Personality Disorder (including Borderline, Narcissistic, Dependent, Avoidant) - suspected OSDD1 or DID
Some of these are professionally diagnosed, others have been self diagnosed based on a lot of research and self analysis, as I currently do not have access to professional help and that likely won't change within the next years.
• Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?
My upbringing was not the best. I experienced emotional abuse from my mother from a very young age on, others say that there was physical abuse as well but I don't remember any of that. My father seemed very absent during my childhood. He is chronically ill, therefore he had alot of problems to tackle besides his family. I grew up relatively poor, although my parents attempted to not let me notice, they cut short on their own needs in order to always be able to fulfill the children's physical needs. Obviously they couldn't shield me from the facts forever, around the age of 10 I would notice how other kids in my age would have way more expensive things, etc. There is no religious background in my family. I was raised agnostic-atheist, but would not have been shamed for choosing to follow a religion. As a child my day was clearly structured: set meal times, a (forced) time to rest after lunch, set bed times. I would not always agree with them but not adhering to the rules would only bring me negative consequences so I eventually went along with it. The older I got, the more I enforced my own structures, as the pre-existing ones made my life harder, and at some point my mother also couldn't justify some of her rules anymore, considering I wasn't a young child anymore.
• What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not?
I am currently a tax consultant assistant in training and I quite like it. Obviously there are parts of it that I would rather avoid, such as interacting with clients, but the longer I am in this job, the less this aspect makes me want to quit it (although it fluctuates, depending on my mental state every day). My favorite part of my job is accounting, I am good with numbers and like tasks that don't require me to learn new laws every year (which is why after my apprenticeship I will probably ditch the tax part and focus on becoming an accountant. Obviously there's still things that change over the years, but not as many).
• If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?
It depends on whether I have something I'm interested in available for interaction, and on my mental state. Obviously, if I get depressed out of nowhere or suffer from an episode of anhedonia, I will not enjoy myself. Usually I will enjoy a weekend in solitude as long as I am busy with things I like. I like meeting my friends as well, but sometimes I lack the energy or motivation to meet them so I won't do it. Let's say that in 50% of the cases I would feel refreshed.
• What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?
I don't like and am not good at sports. If I don't have to do them, that's good because I am everything except fit. I like taking walks, sometimes, when the weather is nice. Indoors I will usually be on my phone or at my computer, consuming media that interests me (usually video games or movies/tv shows). I also like to read, but lately I haven't had the energy to focus on reading. My favorite genres in media are Sci-Fi, fantasy, action and psychological horrothrillers.
• How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
I am curious about quite a few things. My special interest is mental illness, specifically personality disorders and dissociative disorders. Not their history etc., but how exactly they affect people living with them, and their many different presentations. I am very curious about things concerning my special interest and hyperfixations (which are currently the video game Phasmophobia and the psychological horror show Generation Loss). What I am also curious about are moral and in general philosophical questions, as well as questions around consciousness (among other things connected to lucid dreaming) and what makes a person themselves.
• Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
I am unsure about this one. If everything went according to plan, maybe, but only if I wasn't the one making the plan on my own. I need people to reflect on the plan with, so I don't make fatal mistakes. My leadership style would most likely be a democracy, as I can't see myself enforcing my ideas at the cost of people's suffering. I may be self centered but with this many people's wellbeing at stake, I will not compromise my morals. I usually only compromise my morals around people I don't like.
• Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity?
I have dyspraxia, so not really. Especially bigger movements are hard to coordinate for me, smaller ones are easier. It sometimes feels like the connection between my brain and the rest of my body is severed, because I see others do with ease what I struggle to do.
• Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.
I would call myself semi-artistic. I don't paint or draw, instead I feel very attuned to music and sound in general. I compose music, usually orchestral pieces. Added to that, I have also been into poetry for a while and I have written quite a few poems of my own. I enjoy all kinds of art, as long as I can give it a meaning (or it already has one that I agree with). Some of my friends write poetry or create digital art, I enjoy seeing these, as well as I enjoy music. The art I like the most is the one that makes me stop and think. The one that has a twisted meaning and can be interpreted in many different ways.
• What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
The past just kind of happened. Positive experiences are easily forgotten, negative ones tend to stick around. There is no way to change it, and I don't know if I'm actually really dealing with it or if I'm just detaching from it. My memory is also pretty bad so I tend to forget a lot of what happens, therefore there is no time to deal with it and to process it. The present is something I don't feel all too connected to. It is happening around me and obviously I interact with it, but most of the time I feel distanced from it. Maybe 10% of the time I actually feel connected to what I am doing, saying, feeling, etc.. The future is scary. I would prefer to avoid it because things could always get worse than they already are. The future holds challenges that I don't feel equipped for. I take measures to avoid it, if possible, else I distract myself from it so I don't have to think about it. I think it's kinda noticable that I am a very avoidant and detached person.
• How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?
It depends on who the other person is and if they pissed me off, or if I'm otherwise occupied. For example I will likely refuse to help my mother or sisters, especially if they pissed me off. However as soon as I am around people I can't be an asshole towards, I will swallow my pride and help to maintain my image of being a good person. There's people I don't want to lose and they can't know how I treat people I wouldn't care about losing (not as in I wouldn't care if they died, but I wouldn't care if they hated me. Obviously I would care about how they treat me when they hate me, but that's a different issue). I will usually help people I like, and I might help old people in public with stuff sometimes but I prefer to let others help, as usually I don't consider myself capable enough to help.
• Do you need logical consistency in your life?
Yes, I'd say so. If people do or say things that don't make sense/add up, and expect me to go along with them, it can drive me insane and I will not be able to function properly in such an environment. I try to make sense of everything that happens (to me), I dislike things I can't explain.
• How important is efficiency and productivity to you?
It's somewhat important to me, if the thing that is being done benefits me. If not, I myself might be lazy, inefficient and not productive. It also bothers me when other people do things inefficiently and then complain about the results. I feel better when I'm productive, but I don't like putting in the effort for it.
• Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?
Probably. I mean, everyone does to an extend. Action/reaction. People react to things in certain ways and you can use that in order to get what you need/want. Obviously I will not walk around attempting to emotionally manipulate people, but I will most definitely use what I've been given to my best in order to have my needs fulfilled. I recognize patterns in people and use them to my advantage and sometimes for example lead conservations in the direction I want them to go. I also control people in other ways, such as attempts at direct control (but only within my family). I will directly voice what I want or what bothers me and argue with them about it, with the expectation of them giving in. It doesn't really work, but it's an attempt.
• What are your hobbies? Why do you like them?
My hobbies include singing, playing video games, watching movies/tv shows, composing music and talking about philosophy or psychology. I like them because, well, I like them. I can't quite explain it better. They make me happy.
• What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?
My learning style is hyperfocus, I guess. I learn things the best when I'm fully interested and focused on them. However, if that isn't the case, I usually learn best by memorizing visuals to the point where I can recall them from my brain during exams. This has saved me quite a few exams by now. Memorization, logic, that's how I learn. I am also a visual learner, despite everything I thought in middle school (I used to claim that I wasn't a visual learner just so I didn't have to add pictures to my presentations. Had no success with that). I believe that the learning style I struggle the most with is creativity. If a teacher was to introduce a new topic and told me to creatively present it, I would probably be quite overwhelmed. But it also depends on the topic and the classmates around me. I might also be good at learning with my physical senses. You can only really grasp the essence of something if you have touched it, analyzed its mechanics yourself instead of just reading about it.
• How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go?
I am not all too good at strategizing and used to be someone who would improvise projects as I go, but I am currently trying to learn to properly plan my projects. Especially in my job it is essential to be on top of your tasks.
• What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
Professionally I want to become an accountant, preferably for a well paying company. However, I also have the dream of being a famous musician, basically living on stage and having everyone absolutely admiring me and also feeling inspired by the music I create. Personally I aspire to be someone people look up to and say "dude. They made it. Despite all of their struggles, they made it". I don't want to be a role model, but instead an inspiration for others. I also really want to heal from my trauma and mental illness and experience true happiness. I want to feel fulfilled when I die, like there is nothing I missed out on.
• What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
I fear a lot of things. I fear the unknown because of what it could hold. I fear failure because of how other people would see me. I fear making the wrong decisions because of how my life could worsen with no way to fix it. I fear being alone with no one to watch out for me because I don't think I could take care of myself. I fear other people because of how they could attack me, verbally and physically, for making mistakes, not fitting the norm, etc.. I fear the death of my loved ones because one, I cannot imagine a life without them and two, I am scared that I will move on too quickly and that feels immoral to me. I fear confrontation with anyone except my family because I feel like asking for consideration of my own needs hurts the ones I care about and am confronting, and I fear that they might leave because of it. I am uncomfortable with tons of stuff, from being confronted with my fears down to the am smallest possible issues like kids screaming, or similar stuff. I hate it when people don't see the obvious. Doesn't matter if they are incapable of seeing it or if they are ignoring it on purpose. I also hate it when people (my family) refuse to acknowledge my personal needs but expect me to acknowledge theirs.
• What do the "highs" in your life look like?
I don't know if it counts as a "high" if it lasts an hour at maximum. But those highs usually look like exciting days with friends, or me listening to really good music.
• What do the "lows" in your life look like?
During my "lows" I will usually have little to no energy, so I might lay in bed all day without eating or drinking much, unable to do something else except mindlessly scrolling on my phone to escape the dread in my mind. They tend to last longer than the "highs" do, but also tend to be ended by one of them.
• How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often, or do you pay attention to what's around you? If you do daydream, are you aware of your surroundings while you do so?
I mean, I have maladaptive daydreaming. I have been daydreaming 50% of my life since I was a little child. And as I mentioned in the question about the past, present and future: I usually feel very detached or distanced from reality. Most of the time I am semi-aware of my surroundings when I daydream, I may even implement my surroundings. I will usually be able to quickly snap out of a daydream and react to reality, if needed.
• Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?
I might think about any options I have to try and get out of it. Eventually I would give up and start thinking about my life, the good and the bad things, the people who might be worrying about me and I might feel sorry for making them worry. Part of the time I would use to daydream but eventually I would run out of ideas.
• How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?
It takes me a lot of time to make important decisions. Usually I make my choice last minute, as it is very hard to determine your future without knowing 100% of the consequences. I may change my mind very often about a decision, but not always. Sometimes I just go along with them afterwards.
• How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?
I barely process my emotions. They overcome me, overwhelm me and then leave. I detach from them before I can process them. Emotions are somewhat important in my life, but they often hinder me from what I actually have to do so I don't have the best relation to them. However, I like inducing emotions on purpose by listening to certain music, etc., then I will 100% enjoy them.
• Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?
Yes, usually around people I like and at work. These are people who I cannot disappoint or they might leave me or harm me otherwise. I do it all the time.
• Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why?
I don't break rules often. I used to, as a child, but that was because the rules of my mother were way too strict and didn't allow me to be the child that I was. Most of the time I didn't even break them on purpose, but instead couldn't comprehend them because they didn't make sense to me. Authority should be questioned and challenged if needed. They definitely don't know better. They're only humans, such as you and I. Just because they happen to hold a lot of power over the general population doesn't mean that they know better. Power corrupts, which is why I very much mean towards challenging authority. However I don't do it myself, as it would put me into an unsafe situation.

2023.06.03 18:56 tqthrownaway The hardest part about change is believing that you can.

I have never aligned with who I’ve become. I’ve always wanted better for myself and I’ve always wanted to prove people wrong. I knew I wasn’t the narratives placed upon me by the hurt adults around me who bled their trauma on me. Despite knowing this and wanting this, I never had the tools to be this. I survived in a low structure/low emotion household. On top of that I was ridiculed for not being what I like to refer to as “a self cleaning oven”. I was shamed for not automatically knowing how to do things. I was expected to figure out life on my own and I was ridiculed for trying. There was no room for growth, so there was none. Despite, that fire in me never died. I am still not where I want to be at 27. Actually I’m very far from it, but at the same time I am the closest I’ve ever been to it. Crazy enough it’s hard for me to compute that. I still expect perfection. I still get mad at myself for not being that person RIGHT NOW. Those unrealistic expectations from my childhood still haunt me. I wrestle with “I’m just not who I thought I am” constantly as I was often to “You’re just not that kind of person to be able to do XYZ”. That still hurts me. Why tell a child that? Repeatedly? I’m lazy, stupid. I would get ridiculed for laughing because I looked “goofy”. Ouch. Kid can’t even laugh. I’m still here through the suicidal ideation, the self sabotage, the infrequent ups and the very recognizable downs. I’m still trying. The hardest part of change is believing that you can. Even when you fuck up for the 153749th time. That it still matters to 13 year old me, 19 year old me, it still matters to 23 year old me, and it matters now.

2023.06.03 18:55 Swimming-Reality3294 I have no idea what to do here

Two things-
First - A while ago I decided to go back to school in my 30s and take some classes at a community College and started working through some long ignored life and emotional issues. I had been thinking about all my issues and regrets and had not been paying attention to my mental health. I was just making it worse for myself. one day i was in the school bathroom and was there all day thinking about everything and i suddenly had trouble using the restroom.
So i was in the stall all day. (Found out later i was lactose intolerant and had been not drinking enough water for months.)And then the door kept getting hit by other students telling me to leave and i had no idea why i couldn't be done. So i randomly picked a guy to look at me to show im busy in here as i cleaned myself up which is revolting and embarrassing..as i was doing it but i was frozen with embarrassment as i realized how terrible an idea this was..as was he. And he ran out. And i freaked out after what i had done. I saw the guy later and realized i knew him from a class. We both were in shock and ran the other way. I always wished i could apologize that day but everything was so out of character i didn't know where to begin..plus were both musicians, so chances are well work together at some point...
This was 8 years ago. Ive been considering finding this guy and pouring my heart out to apologize in some way.
I dont know if i even should..it was so gross and weird and embarrassing.
Im lost.
Two- I helped out a photo buddy on a senior picture shoot...were both in our 30s This girl was very attractive and afterwards everyone had a crush but obviously not interested or available.
Well i found her again during this above period to create more havoc i guess. I told her everything and she was Disgusted with me.
I want to apologize to her now but idk how.
What should i do with both of these?

2023.06.03 18:53 MickySuperBuddy Unlicensed Overcrowded Slumlord HMO – I am about to call the council to come for an inspection and need advice please!

First of all, thanks for reading and commenting. In October of 2020, I immigrated to Britain and have been living in an HMO in Liverpool. Since the beginning, the condition of the property was bad (including mould and damp, mice etc) and we were 6 tenants in total, mostly immigrants. Since then, the HMO has been sold over and over again and had 3 different owners. Since the last owner took over in January, the situation in the property has been deteriorating extremely and often the landlord has simply refused to make repairs. He has been filling the rooms with couples to charge more money and the number of tenants has risen and now has been oscillating around 8-11 tenants. We even had an Indian couple who just arrived in Britain with a little 5-year-old girl squeezed into the smallest room of the house (barely fits a double bed) for about a week while charging them horrendous prices.
When the shower downstairs broke, the landlord made 6 tenants (including me) share a small shower box for over 6 weeks. The drier broke and he refused to repair it, so now we do not have a drier anymore. The kitchen only has 1 standard cooker with 4 hobs. The overcrowding of the kitchen let to accidents happen and tenants getting burned when bumping into each other and hot pots falling over. Rubbish everywhere and very dirty and no cleaning service ever cleans the house. I guess you guys get the picture. This situation let me to question “How can such inhumane treatment be legal in England?”. I know this from third world countries, but was surprised to find it here. When I researched, I found out that not only is all of the above illegal, but there is no HMO licence for this property in the database of the Liverpool council, hence, the entire HMO is illegal. Coincidentally, this week the landlord served notice to the tenants in the first floor (including me) and gave us 60 days to vacate (reason unknown).
I want to call the council and ask them to come for an inspection, which will result in them finding out about all the illegalities. Ironically, the London agency that manages the property and the landlord are all foreigners too (Indian and Arabs) and act a bit like “Wannabe Gansta” with obvious total disregard for the law. So, I’m worried for the safety of the tenants too. Many are immigrants that do not know the law and their rights, have no family in the UK and are vulnerable. Here is what I would like to ask before I call the council:
  1. I talked to Citizens Advice already about this, but they could not answer this. What happens to the tenants when the inspection concludes that the HMO is illegal? Do we get 60 days to leave or less or more? Can we leave whenever we want? I know that the notice that he gave us would be nullified, since you can’t evict tenants in an unlicensed HMO.
  2. I want to ask for a rent repayment order of 12 months after all is done, but since there are 2 landlords in that time period is that even possible or how does this work?
  3. I always had a tenancy agreement, but this last landlord gave me a Licence to Occupy agreement, which is illegal too. I complained to him with no success. I know that my deposit does not have the same protection as with a tenancy agreement and I plan to not pay the last month’s rent to make sure I get my money back. Is this ok under these conditions or can that cause me problems?
  4. Has anyone here practical experience with a council inspection in illegal HMOs and can share their experience or give me some tips?
Thanks to everyone and hopefully justice will be made…

2023.06.03 18:53 antihero28 Prozac is the only thing that has really helped me. But there is a problem with prozac to?

I have probably suffered with mental health issues all the way back to childhood. But it really began becoming a major problem for me when I was 17. I began suffering with extreme anxiety and extreme ocd. I got severe brain fog, depersonalization, the list goes on. I am now 32 and still suffering with the same mental health issues. But the depression has also gotten a lot worse as I have got older.
I went on 20mg of prozac from the age of 18 until 22. I quit the prozac because of sexual side effects. Mainly erectile dysfunction. But then I noticed all the severe mental health issues returned. Then over the course of 10 years from 22 until now I have tried many different medications, a handful of SSRI's, tried the SNRI venlafaxine, tried mirtazapine, tried reboxetine, tried pregeablin, tried diazapam, tried betablockers. All the SSRI's gave me severe sexual side effects, but none of the SSRI's helped me except prozac and lexapro. Lexapro 10mg helped me slightly for about a year, then it stopped working. No other medication I have tried has really helped me, and many of them made me feel much worse. So the only medication that has massively helped me is 20mg of prozac. I also was off all medication for most of the decade , I tried therapy about 4 times, anxiety groups, I tried to clean up my diet, exercise a lot, different types of supplements. Many different things I have tried to improve my mental health for well over a decade. The conclusion I have basically come to is nothing really works for me, except prozac.
I have been back on prozac 20mg for just over 11 weeks, and I can feel the difference on it. It just stops that mental torture constantly going on in my head. It makes me far more mentally stable than anything else I have tried. My mental health isn't even 100% perfect on prozac, but it has made me by far more mentally stable than anything else I have tried.
I can hardly go outside or be around other people when I am not on prozac because of severe anxiety. I am suicidal almost everyday, I get constant ruminating thoughts, severe brain fog, severe mood swings. It's like living with near constant mental torture, this is how I feel when I am not on prozac. Prozac seems to stop the worst of the mental health issues, and causes me by far the most mental stability and mental relief out of everything I have tried.
Because of how long I have had all these issues, and everything I have tried, I am really beginning to believe prozac is the only thing that works for me, and if I am not on it my mental health is going to be so bad that I will basically have no quality of life at all. But then the issue with the 20mg of prozac is the sexual side effects. I don't exactly always want to live with that all my life either.
I don't know what's so wrong with me that I feel so mentally terrible and mentally unstable, but then simply being on 20mg of prozac seems to fix my mental issues for the most part.

Puppy found near minute maid last night. Need suggestions on how to reach out to homeless people in area.
My sister found this dog on 6/2/2023 and posted to a few rescue and lost pet groups on FB.
Someone suggested that she may belong to a homeless person since the found her where they did and had a collar and leash.
I'm looking for suggestions on how I can spread the word to find this dog's owner. But also putting her up here in hopes someone may recognize her.
This is my sister's post from FB: Found this puppy at Irma's downtown across from Star of Hope right in front of Minute Maid Park. No chip and she already had a collaleash attached. Please share so we can hopefully find an owner! Thank you!

Applying to TUD for B.Sc Informatik. Which Wohnheim is the best quality with least waiting times? I am a quiet person, clean, and looking for similar traits in my flatmates.
Also, how hard are Einzelapartments to get in comparison to WGs in Wohnheims?

2023.06.03 18:52 Duck8Quack Ca, USA: Landlord trying to charge me extra fee on top of deposit after I moved

I lived in this apartment for 6 years. Big complex and the company owns multiple properties. I was not on a lease and paying month to month. They claimed that a 60 day notice to move out was required (I wasn’t sure of the legality, but gave them 60 days notice). Moved out, 16 days earlier than my last day, but of course paid for those days I was out, and notified the manager via text that the keys were in the drop box.
She later contacts me for my new address essentially in text saying, “Good morning, I hope you are enjoying your new home. I will be mailing u an estimate only estimate! Because we are still working on apt I will get a portion of dep to u as soon as vendors done take care please reply so I know u received lol”. And I replied received, as I had received text, but now I see that could be taken as having received letter. That was 2 weeks ago.
This Friday I receive a document in the mail from them. Not only are they keeping my $470 (when I moved out I figured they’d try to keep it and wasn’t sure if it was worth fighting them over), but they are trying to charge me an additional $110. With the threat that if I don’t pay it will be sent to collections.
The charge are: 150 for carpet 250 for cleaning 140 for painting (8 hours which they say I have to pay 2 of at $70 an hour) 40 for repairs (2 hours which they say I to pay 1 of at $40 an hour)
Total $580
There is an invoice attached with no additional info, just the same info about paint and repairs. There is no explanation of the repairs. I made no holes in the walls; there were probably a few scuffs. There was no stains or damage to the carpet; just regular wear.
I took pictures when I moved out.
I feel like they are just trying to squeeze a little more money out of me for stuff that is their responsibility as the landlord and using the threat of messing with my credit. Originally I just figured they would keep my deposit as they gave off that vibe and I would move on with life. Now, I feel like they are taking advantage of people and this additional charge seems ridiculous. I couldn’t even find anything Googling and people I know that have experience being landlords/working in property management hadn’t heard of a landlord charging a fee after move out for what amounts to regular wear and tear.
Thanks for the help.

2023.06.03 18:51 MoreCranberry3 How are they able to do this? And is this even legal?

I found a truck (2021 Ram limited, clean title) at a very good price on an ad. Went to the dealer checked it out and seemed fine to me, until I asked for a carfax. The carfax showed that the truck had been on an accident. I asked the dealer and he said that it was an accident but a cosmetic one nothing serious no airbags deployed, hence the clean title. Wasn’t too convinced so I searched the vin # on auction sites. Well turnes out the truck had been on a major accident. Saw the pictures and the truck looked totaled. Airbags deployed and everything. So my question is how is it possible for them to sell this as clean title? I’m in texas btw

2023.06.03 18:50 mantisek_pr First time taking vyvanse after 20 years unmedicated since dx. Here's a play by play of how I'm feeling.

I noticed there's not a lot of firsthand accounts of what taking some ADHD meds feel like so I'm going to try.
Amount: 1x10mg Age: Early 30s
Before taking: Felt groggy, as I typically do. (9:00am) After taking: I had a small breakfast but quickly it set in in about 20 minutes and kept climbing. I'm glad I didn't drink any coffee beforehand because I'm right on the edge of comfortable for stimulant effects.
(9:49am) 30 min: Feels like someone turned a light on in my brain. I can do stuff now. I cleaned my bathroom. What's next? I haven't had any caffeine and my eyes are wide open. I'm slightly uncomfortable with how much im stimmed, but my hands aren't shaking and I can manage this. If I hadn't mastered my anxiety with cbt before this, over many years, i would probably be freaking out right now, but I'm riding the sensation and enjoying its benefits rather than focusing on the bad things.
No nausea. Not very hungry though.
Will update as this progresses
edit: This is not a review of vyvanse. Everyone's going to be different. This is just AN experience you can have with it.

2023.06.03 18:48 Wonderful_Anybody362 Realizing you have no value to your narc as a person is what hurts the most.

NMom really does not care about who I am as a person. What you offer them, what you do for them, how much you beg for their attention or kiss their ass, none of it makes a difference.
I can clean out the garage, and still get bitched out for leaving a cup in the sink.
I can clean the whole basement, organizing/giving away all the shit that she hoarded when her parents died, and still be accused of not helping around the house.
My dad can die, and I have to clean my room the next day for the carpet cleaners to come. "It'll make your mom SO happy," everyone told me. "Take care of your mom." What about me? WHAT ABOUT ME?
Clean, clean, clean. Clean when she's mad. Clean so she doesn't get mad. Clean so she might smile and act like you are a human being deserving of affection. The good grades, the jobs I landed, my friends, my activities. None of it mattered. I don't matter to her.

2023.06.03 18:47 sadgetruth Drain under poured patio.

Drain under poured patio.
Hello concrete! I have a question that’s half concrete/plumbing.
Prior to my concrete patio pour. I had my downspout line pvc routed into an eliminated catch basin drain line. This was about 3 years ago. Every year the ground seems to sink more and more. I believe there’s an issue with the drain. The attached photos show the drain prior to the concrete pour and the second photo is where the patio extends on over. The concrete looks to be about 3 inches thick, it’s rebar reinforced to the foundation as well.
This may be a stupid question but is it safe to dig a hole about the same size or smaller as In the photos underneath this slab to make the necessary repairs.
Essentially a 6sq foot hole about 6 feet deep in the would need to be dug out from underneath corner of the slab. Can probably get away with smaller.
Any recommendations on how to reinforce the section of concrete for repair? I would like to do this without cutting out that piece of patio. Is it safe to work underneath a section like this?
There’s no cracks in this patio as of yet. I would like to repair this so it stays that way.

2023.06.03 18:47 Green7000 Does Anyone Know How to Clean Up Water

Apparently it is a difficult task. So this morning my husband looked after the kids while I slept in. Then he went upstairs to lay down. I gave him one of the kids ipads and asked him to charge it upstairs. He went to do so and then yelled downstairs that I needed to not leave water bottles open because he had knocked one over when plugging in the ipad and it spilled.
I responded I remembered our son drinking one last night and yes he brought it upstairs, then apologized for forgetting.
Then he asked me what I was going to do about the water.
I asked if he needed a towel.
He said that the water had spilled on some of my boots on the floor. "Since this is YOUR water and YOUR boots I figure YOU should deal with it."
I asked if he was alright while I grabbed a towel. Wiped the water on the table, floor, and yes a little bit off the leather boots. He asked me to close the door on the way out.

So yes apparently cleaning up water is a specialized skilled, one I should not have expected him to have. So as an informal poll, how about the rest of you? Do any of you know how to clean up spilled water?

2023.06.03 18:47 almost_functional A big milestone

Today I am 68 days clean (if I didn't miscount). That is 3 more days than my clean time before my relapse.
I exited my cycle of abuse in January. After 56 days I was overcome by cravings that did not subside for 9 days, so I relapsed after 65. I binged for 3 days, threw away the rest, and went back on the horse. Cause of the cravings was a feeling that my sexual identity was threatened. I stimfapped. I was afraid I'd never experience an orgasm like that again. The relapse showed me how empty and hollow the whole experience was.
So 2 days ago I broke that record. I haven't craved in about 6 weeks. Physically I feel the best in years, and I still have a long way to go. Really gives me hope. I was so scared of the potential 18 months long recovery, but I'm good enough already.
My underlying issues have resurfaced. I finally found out that my childhood fits all definitions of 'trauma'. No wonder I'm a lifelong addict.
It's been a rough couple weeks in that regard, but because I am finally facing my shit. There's no drive to go back to avoiding this at the moment.
One thing I really, really need to be careful of though. Something I've learned early: Feeling good is a trigger for me. And I have had a few very difficult weeks with not a lot of happiness. I've been healing. That's painful sometimes. But it won't be painful forever. And once I get out of this current phase as a stronger person, I wouldn't be surprised if cravings lurk right around the corner.
I'll be ready. I got this. And if not, I got you. During my darkest times, these subs caught me and helped me pick myself back up. Thank you all for being here.

2023.06.03 18:46 Deb555 Day 3 and claiming success!

At almost 70, I was not really interested in Ozempic/semaglutides until the day I saw my 39yo daughter spend 7 hours cleaning and fixing things in the house! We are a family of ADHD compounded by laziness and things are always in a state of "I really need to do..." or "I really should do..." and then never do. So I really had a raised eyebrow as I witnessed my daughter being productive! At that time, I think she was about 4-5 weeks in to Wegovey.
Today, on Day 3 of OZ, i just thoroughly cleaned the kitchen including scrubbing the stove, the counters, the air fryer and the kitchen sink. From there, I moved into my bedroom and cleaned the damn ceiling fan blades! How many hundreds of days have I looked up from my chair and said "I really need to clean those!"?
And of course I didn't stop there. At one point, I even got on my knees! I know for a fact that my knees have not seen the floor in over a year.
it is very odd. It is not like getting all hyped up on speed from diet pills. It isn't like that at all. I don't have this surplus of energy either. It is more a mental thing of one task leading to another and "Why not?"
This is all I hoped for from this amazing medication. Here's hoping it continues! 69F SW227.5 GW189 - T2, Triple bypass 3 years ago and now PAD restricting blood flow through my legs.

2023.06.03 18:45 FrauAmarylis I did a Trial Run of Parenting to be sure I didn't want Kids:

In my late 30s, I hosted an exchange student, "Elsa". Partly to be sure I didn't want a kid. Here's how it went:
I wanted to do the summer program, but they talked me into 11 months. I lived across the street from the high school, which was convenient. My husband was going to be abroad for work for most of it, and I'm a former teacher and principal. (DINKER- Retired at 38.)
It was exactly as I thought.
My husband was the Good Cop/Disneyland Dad who swooped in from work with dad jokes or to take us fun places or to cook dinner and do his usual chores, but he wasn't around to do much of the parenting, and he often was too lazy to enforce the rules (paying for her latte, when she was supposed to pay for it- the $ guidelines are very strict in the exchange program), not checking if her chores were done, etc.
So, I had to be "the bad cop" who followed through with daily drudgery of parenting- teaching her she has to carry her ID at all times, not bringing it to her at school when she called saying she forgot it again, taking her to doctor appointments, arranging carpooling and outings, learning who her friends were, hosting her birthday party, figuring out she was lying when she said her teacher lost her assignment, communicating with her parents and the exchange liason meetings, following the parenting expectations for the exchange program, help her figure out her US clothing sizes, register her for school, etc.
None of my friends cared to ask about me anymore, only they asked about her and my husband (who was abroad). I put a pink rinse in my hair at the time, and looking back, I think maybe it was to get some attention back on myself. Everyone mentioned my pink hair.
And she hated her mom and worshipped her Disneyland Dad who gave her free reign with his credit card- every 2 weeks she spent $500+ at the mall, with her US friend who had an actual job and had to pay her own stuff. (Also- her dad had cheated on her mom, causing their divorce, and lives with his mistress, but kept a flat so ). I had to cajole her into sending her mom a birthday card. Her poor regard for her mom really bothered me.
Elsa lied all the time, even about trivial things. In her country she has used public transportation solo since age 8, so if her mom tried to give her a consequence for misbehaving, she would get on the train and go to her dad's house.
Elsa's divorced parents didn't communicate with each other, so they believed her lies. We were watching Mrs.Doubtfire, and for the first time she wasn't on her phone- she was actually smiling and enjoying the movie- and I asked her if it was because she tricked her divorced parents like the kids do in the movie, and she just had a guilty smile.
Elsa told me I'm the first person who ever followed through and made sure she did everything she said she would do. She said it was an adjustment for her, but it seemed she kind of liked the structure and consistency I provided.
I took her to Hawaii to vacation with my mom and I, and my husband and I took her on a road trip up the CA coast, and we had a pool she loved, she loved my convertible, and I took her to amusement parks, to Hollywood/LA, sports games, hiking, whale/dolphin Watching (her favorite animal is dolphin), etc. The Exchange Liason said I was the best and shared that the other host families were struggling because their kids didn't like the exchange kids getting all the attention.
Since age 8, she's lived one week with her mom, and the next week with her dad and she hates that custody arrangement. It was clear that her mom did the Parenting and her dad spoiled her and took her on annual lavish vacation. But she hated the dad's mistress, and when Elsa left on exchange, the dad wasted no time getting rid of his flat and moving in with the Mistress. This upset Elsa, but she could never share her feelings with her dad.
She loved our house at the beach, our CA weather (and winter daylight), living in one home instead of switching every week, and my cooking.
Does Elsa want kids?
Elsa had requested a host family without kids. (That's us!) She spends a week at her Grandma's every summer with her cousins, and by the end she hates being around those little kids. But she advised that she does want to have one or two kids. I asked why, and she had a hard time explaining it (she was 17), and it sounded like she wants a Mini Me, a child of her own. When I asked her about taking care of the baby when it's sick and stating up all night, etc. And she just shrugged.
We were duped: We chose Elsa from the application pool, because she said she was Outdoorsy and loves the beach, wanted to go to museums, liked travel, and wanted to improve her English.
Besides swimming in the pool, Elsa is Far From Outdoorsy! She can't ride a bike, she won't step on sand, and she refused to go in any museums (she'd wait outside as we went in) or go hiking. Elsa is ftom a country where they say babies are "born with skis on", and Elsa doesn't ski.
Her mom had been on exchange in the 80s, and has a job with Microsoft where she speaks English all day, and I've video-chatted with the Mom and she speaks nearly perfect English (for example, far better than the Germans when I lived there, although Elsa and parents aren't German). (I have a teaching certification in language acquisition, so I have a better understanding than most people.) Elsa's family never hosted a student in "exchange".Americans were always troubled upon hearing that I didn't have a kid living on exchange with Elsa's family. Elsa's mom loved her exchange and her mom still has her cowboy boots, insists on an American clothes Dryer in her flat, and is in touch with her Texas "Mom and Dad".
We also learned that Elsa's family owns a home in Florida and she Vacatons there every year, which is likely why she didn't have to learn how our stores, sales tax, etc worked, like tge rest of the exchange kids did. (I also worked in law enforcement, so I noticed all the details that weren't adding up, and Elsa was frustrated tgat I caught her in lies all the time.)
Americans all assumed Elsa was American. They didn't hear any accent. We were never given photos of her before we chose her, but she has green eyes like my husband and I (only 2% of Americans have green eyes, lol), and the same hair color as me, so people were in shock when they were told she's not our kid. Elsa and us, we all found it amusing.
How it Ended: The exchange program rule was that the kids had to participate in a sport or activity outside of school, because American high school kids are very busy with jobs/sports and Exchange kids find it hard to make friends. Despite being very outgoing and social, This was true for Elsa.
My friend asked Elsa how her activities were going and I heard Elsa say that she quit them.
(Also, despite all the amazing trips, Elsa was mad that I didn't take her to San Francisco yet, and tgat I didn't let her skip school to go to Disneyland with an exchange student who was finishing her exchange early.)
There were some other things that I knew the other exchange kids were doing (things that the kids signed and pledged to do in the exchange contract), like cook a meal from their country, celebrate a holiday from your country with your host family, etc. And after 6 months and her national holiday passed, Elsa had never done any of it.
Elsa was annoyed at me for catching her in a lie about where she was, and advised that she just wants to be my "roommate". She wants me to cook, clean,provide room and board (her own bedroom with private bath in our million dollar beach house), but not be concerned with where she is or what she does.
I advised that what she is describing is the University international student program- but she would have roommates AND have to pay Tuition, room, board, and cook and clean for herself. Of course, she isn't interested in that.
So, I told Elsa to ask her one friend at school if she could live with them, because I'm going to rent out her room, since she gave me the idea about how much better roommate life is than the exchange.
When the time came to move out, after 6 months, Elsa didn't want to go. This new situation was atypical and she would share a room and a small house with 4 other kids and their parents, and they don't cook, lol.
It was a drama to get her to go.
My opinion: The way Elsa treated her own parents is the main reason that validated my choice to remain childfree by choice.
I don't believe in year-long exchangestudent to the US, for many reasons, unless it is someone from a disadvantaged country who speaks little English- of the 14 students in our group- there was only 1 kid tgat was like that and he really did benefit from the long exchange, and he really did suffer culture shock, and he really was very grateful for all he was provided for a year. Just do the summer one if you want, although some of my teacher friends have terrible stories about those, too.
Elsa's older half-brother (he's my age) was correct. He had found out that Elsa's host family was a military Colonel and a retired School Principal, and he told her that she'd never make it. He was correct!
