2023.06.10 22:17 ZiggyGasman Suggestions and feedback please!
| || |
After playing only a Rivera 30/12 w/ drive switch + Ninja boost for 15 years, I have recently decided to build my first pedalboard. I joined the worship team at my church and needed a solution for generating the necessary tones/sounds/ambience/swells etc. I'm well aware of all the options out there, but I decided wholeheartedly to take advantage of this opportunity to build a pedalboard now that I have an excuse to do so. I haven't assembled everything yet, but after a moderate amount of research, this is the rig I'm developing based on the pedals and other equipment I've obtained (which are mostly used). submitted by ZiggyGasman to guitarpedals [link] [comments]
My conceived signal chain is as follows: Petersen tuner > Electro-Harmonix micro pog > Keeley compressor > Chase Bliss Audio Brothers > MXR Duke of Tone > Walrus Ages > Wampler Tumnus > Strymon Riverside > Strymon Sunset > Ernie Ball Vol Jr pedal > Walrus Julianna Chorus > Line 6 DL4 MkII > Walrus Slo > Strymon Big Sky > Strymon Timeline > Strymon Iridium
Some thoughts that went into this setup:
I started with all analog using DOT into Ages, but wasn't getting the full range of overdrive tones I was looking for yet (2 bluesbreaker based pedals).
I love the DL4 mark 2, although a little confusing to tinker with. I was using this primarily for delay and reverb combined with Slo reverb for a beautiful ambient soundscape, and this was great up until I couldn't dial in all the reverb and delay styles I was looking for. This was especially limiting during performance. It worked fine and the sound was adequate, but I wanted more range and control.
Honestly, playing with my own amp has been nice for the sound, but I am really tired of lugging the amp back and forth. Ultimately, I decided to spring for a MIDI control setup with some strymon pedals and the CBA Brothers pedal controlled by MC6 pro. I bought ML5 and plan to loop in POG, DOT, AGES, Tumnus, and Keeley compressor (mainly to dial in a few different sustain settings) for MIDI presets. I might get a bigger loop switcher later on to have control over the Julianna and the Slo, but for now I think I'll bring them in and out manually and use their sustain feature at times. Finally, with the Iridium I intend to plug into front of house so my only payload will be the board.
I have the isolated power banks I need to juice everything. I will send MIDI to all capable devices and use presets for each setlist.
Any ideas for ideal setup? Am I missing anything important?

| || |
Finally finished getting her an optic & WML. Happy with both; however is it just Me or do these plastic mounting plates put your shot placement all over the place? I couldn't get this 507c zeroed consistently to save my life today I finally got it to where it's a fist-sized grouping at 10 yards but it's significantly low/left even with the vertical axis all the way "up" (that was as good as I could get it). No, it isn't the optic...mounted it to an M18 my buddy had at the range and it was on like a spotlight. Put it back on the m&p? All over the place again. Re-torqued screws (to spec) and it was the same story. Blue loctite was used in original application; but I left it off when I put it back on the 2nd time (at the range) because it wouldn't have time to cure with shooting it. No, it isn't my grip or my accuracy; I'm proficient with any other setup and with this pistol using irons-only. TL;DR it leads me to believe these CORE plates are the culprit. Anyone else have trouble keeping their red dot zeroed with the CORE plates? submitted by RawbWobbles to SmithAndWesson [link] [comments]
2023.06.10 22:04 Gigitoe JutAlps
is an indicator I developed to quantify how sharply or impressively a mountain rises above its surroundings, considering both its height above surroundings
Looking at the highest-jut mountains in the Alps, we discover incredibly impressive summits that score lowly on traditional elevation-based rankings. An example is the Eiger
(jut: 1660 m), whose North Face rises 1800 meters at a near-vertical angle above its surroundings, almost double the local rise of El Capitan in Yosemite. Perhaps even more remarkable is Monte Agner
(jut: 1584 m) in the Italian Dolomites—despite having a fairly low elevation of only 2872 m, it looks like something straight out of Skyrim.
Fun facts about jut:
- The highest jut in the contiguous U.S. goes to Mount Rainier (jut: 1332 m), a massive stratovolcano in Washington State (contiguous U.S. jut map for comparison). The highest jut in the entire U.S. goes to the North Peak of Denali (jut: 2548 m). In comparison, Mount Everest "only" measures a jut of 2211 m. However, the highest jut in the world goes to Annapurna Fang (jut: 3395 m) in Nepal, whose southwest face could rightfully be deemed the biggest mountain face on this planet.
- The Alps feature a very high jut for their elevation. In comparison, the Colorado Rockies, while having a similar elevation, measure a maximum jut of below 850 meters. Mountain ranges with both similar elevation and jut as the Alps include the Canadian Rockies and Patagonian Andes.
For more info on jut, feel free to check out How Jut Works
or my research paper
. To search up the jut of a mountain you know, or find high-jut mountains near you (or in your country / state), you can use my site PeakJut.com
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments—I'm happy to address them!

2023.06.10 21:52 PapaQsHoodoo My 08 came with this OEM toolbox but no mounts. Judging from the holes, there should be a mounting solution that fits into the track system. Could someone point me in the right direction? I'm striking out
2023.06.10 21:08 AntimonySB51 Anyone have one of these?
I was looking for a solution similar to the OEM Bike rack that is made for a Countryman that fits in the tow hooks off the rear bumper, however, as I have learned, this won't fit my '24 Clubman; I came across this that also uses the tow hooks and wondered if anyone had experience with this; of course it would be for solo rides only....I don’t want to mount a hitch mount to my car. free2go

2023.06.10 20:54 mursearmand Claris Front Derailleur rubbing
Hi all, I did some minor upgrades to a 11 year old Gianf Defy 5. Nothing too crazy, but I replaced a Shimano 2300 group for Claris triple except the cranks/bottom bracket. In the big ring (FSA 52/42/30), the bottom of the inner cage has been rubbing the middle chain ring. I’ve made the braze-on hanger slot taller with a Dremel so I could mount it higher, but I’m still rubbing a bit. Any ideas or solutions?

2023.06.10 20:25 Goalshop54 Home Renovation: What are Some Great Ideas for Designing a Smaller Bathroom?
When it comes to home renovation
, designing a smaller bathroom can be a challenging task. Limited space requires careful planning and creative solutions to maximize functionality and aesthetics. Whether you're remodeling a guest bathroom or a compact ensuite, here are some great ideas to consider for designing a smaller bathroom.
- Optimize Layout: The key to designing a smaller bathroom is to make the most of the available space. Consider a layout that utilizes the corners efficiently, such as a corner sink or a corner shower. Wall-mounted fixtures and storage can help free up floor space, giving the illusion of a larger area.
- Light and Bright Colors: Light colors have a transformative effect in small spaces. Opt for a color palette that is light and bright, such as whites, pastels, or soft neutrals. Light-colored walls and tiles reflect more natural light, making the bathroom feel open and airy.
- Mirrors and Glass: Mirrors are excellent for creating an illusion of space in a smaller bathroom. Install a large mirror above the vanity or on a full wall to visually expand the area. Additionally, consider using glass shower doors instead of opaque curtains or bulky shower enclosures to maintain a seamless flow and enhance the sense of openness.
- Clever Storage Solutions: Effective storage is essential in a smaller bathroom to keep it clutter-free. Explore smart storage solutions like recessed cabinets, floating shelves, or wall niches to maximize vertical space. Utilize the area above the toilet or install shelves and hooks on the back of the bathroom door for additional storage options.
- Compact Fixtures: Choose fixtures that are small in size and created with smaller places in mind. To reduce room, think about installing a wall-mounted toilet, and ditching the bulky vanity in favor of a pedestal sink. Compact fixtures not only make the most of the available space but also elevate and modernize the bathroom's aesthetic.
- Lighting Design: Good lighting is essential in every bathroom, but it is especially necessary in smaller rooms. A well-lit restroom appears larger and more welcoming. To create a layered and practical lighting design, combine ambient, task, and accent lighting. To add style and illumination, use wall sconces, recessed lighting, or pendant lights.
- Use tile patterns with creativity to provide the appearance of more space in a small bathroom. Choose larger size tiles with few grout lines to create the appearance of a larger floor or wall. To add interest to the area without taking over the room, think about utilizing mosaic tiles as a decorative border or focal point.
- If your wall space is restricted, open shelves might be a better option than closed cabinets. Open shelves give the impression of space and make it simple to reach commonly used things. To give the bathroom flair, place elegant containers, tasteful decorations, or nicely folded towels on display.
Greenery and Decor: To finish the design, don't forget to incorporate some decorative flourishes and a dash of nature. On the counter or shelves, put a small potted plant or a vase of fresh flowers. Choose wall art or other decor that enhances the room's personality and overall style.
It takes careful preparation and close attention to detail to design a modest bathroom. You can build a chic and useful bathroom that makes the most of your available space and improves the appearance of your home overall by implementing these ideas into your remodeling project.

2023.06.10 20:10 thatguywhosadick 1873 rear sight dovetail rmr mount
I recently came across a cheap uberti 1873 that had a squib at the end of the barrel. I was able to pick it up on the cheap because of this to use as a project gun and turn it into a fun suppressor host. Since we had to cut past the rear sight to remove the squib bulge I’m running it with just a dot mounted off the rear sight dovetail. I’m currently running a micro clone dot off a pic rail mount and it’s a bit taller than I’d like. I figure a direct mount for something in the rmr footprint would be better suited to this but can’t find anything that fits the dovetail on this. Anyone know of one that would suit my needs?

2023.06.10 19:56 Subj3ct_D3lta PDP F Series 4’ Range Report
I’m a skinny guy with small hands and I carry a PDP Compact 4’ with a small back strap, Holosun 507c, and Streamlight TLR7A, almost every day as a duty weapon. Wanted something a little easier to conceal so I went and picked up a PDP F Series with a 4 inch barrel. I immediately put all black Ameriglo BUIS on the gun, as well as a Holosun EPS mounted with a Calculated Kinetics plate.
I went to the range and put a combination of 115 grain and 124 grain ammunition through it to include Federal American Eagle and Hornady TAP. I also put a couple types of hollow points through it to include 115 grain Speer Gold Dot and 124 grain Sig Sauer hollow points. The total round count was about 200 rounds. Pleased to report that all ammo types ran flawlessly with zero malfunctions. I think I preferred the 124 grain ammo to the 115 grain ammo. Odd because my PDP compact prefers eating 115 grain, but that just goes to show you each individual gun is a little different.
I left the small back strap installed to see how it felt. While at the range I noticed that it gave me a tad too much finger in the trigger guard. I’ve since changed it to the medium back strap which remedied that issue. The recoil impulse on the F series was not any different than my PDP compact. The trigger take up was the same, but to get the trigger to break, it required a bit more force than my PDP compact. I don’t know if it’s because they modified the striker to get the 20% reduction in force to rack the slide, or if it’s just because my PDP Compact has well over 1000 rounds through it.
Got home and cleaned it and put it in a Vedder Light Tuck. Pleased to see that it conceals much better than my PDP compact.

2023.06.10 19:43 saganite235711 Movable synth cart?
Anyone out there using some form of mobile cart/desk setup for their music gear?
I'm looking for a solution to my current lack of jam space. Have a baby human that is a very light sleeper, so my previous music space is no longer an option.
Having a setup on wheels would allow me to roll everything into the living room in the evenings.
The Acme desks have wheels, however although they are affordable, ~$220 for a desk that I'm unlikely to repurpose down the road seems a bit much.
Jasper stands have caster options, but I'm used to sitting in a chair and switching between synth, bass/guitar, laptop, etc. Also my setup will include some rack mount gear and small bits and bobs that one doesn't usually see on a synth stand. One cool thing about the stand though is that down the road when I get back to a desk setup I'll easily be able to repurpose the stand.
Gear will include a Grandmother, a midi keyboard, a few desktop synths, a small eurorack case, drum machines, a few rack mount items, interface, laptop, etc.
Any recommendations or insight would be greatly appreciated!

2023.06.10 19:42 scotrod Snap Nextcloud - How do I increase performance/speeds?
I've been using the Snap version of Nextcloud for over a month now and I'm happy with the user experience, but not with the performance of NC. I am looking for a way to boost it up, since I don't think that I'm hardware limited:
Ubuntu VM (ESXI host)
12 CPU cores (E5-2699V3)
16GB of ECC RAM
128GB SSD for the Ubuntu VM
Everything is connected with CAT5E cables and gigabit switch, so I'm not limited by the network.
Storage is attached via NFS mount which is shared via the network from TrueNAS. The TrueNAS has 32gb of memory for caching and 2x3TB drives which are in RAID 1. On this same TrueNAS, on the same disks I have SMB share which I've created just for the test. I can read/write on it with over 100MB/S without issues. In comparison, the best speeds I've got with Nextcloud are 25MB/S and those speeds don't even hold for too long. Usually I get around 10-12MB/S.
The Snap package has not been manipulated in any way from me - everything I've done was performed from the NC interface. Are there any logs which I can provide that can shed light why I have such a terrible performance with the product and is there anything I can do to increase it?

2023.06.10 19:01 eeeeeu Moradaya Rise
"Immortal Spirits of Fate, you who weave destiny, you who are my greatest muse and have spun countless stories in my ears, do not sit in idle silence toward me now. Sing to me of the birth of the Moradaya who came here from those mountainous lands of yore. May my words be true and my tongue possess the skill to utter the tale you speak into me without fault." —An invocation to the spirits. Similar words are commonly spoken by storytellers in pursuit of favor from those who dictate the webs of fate.
As the cold wind howls through the valleys between that fractured piece of the Alpide belt born of the Paleogene in times long passed and nestled between two seas split by the crushing power of the advancing Arabian plate, a band traveling south and east on the backs of short stocky horses orients themselves against the rising sun hidden behind jagged peaks on the horizon which cut the sky like the serration on teeth of ocean sharks these migrants will never encounter, escape from this desolate winter landscape the one thing on their minds. They are Anyana, Iranic peoples whose ancestors roamed the steppes past the great mountains to the north where their distant cousins still drive livestock across a great sea of grass so wide and expansive it is hard for them to imagine both the land there and here in these claustrophobic ravines and gullies wrought by tectonic chaos belong to the same world. They do.
The Anyana abandoned such a pastoralist way of life when they migrated south along the coast of the Black Sea, known to them as Banga Marea, the Great Sea, which was vaster than any their ancestors before them had ever beheld, and into the lowlands between the Greater and Lesser Caucasus where rivers flow west into that massive body of water and the land is lush and fertile for farming. But this land of plenty where it seems the divines had tried their hand at crafting a paradise was not to be the home of the Moradaya. The Anyana who settled in these lands, which were at that time home to a population of Colchic Proto-Kartvelians, enslaved and intermingled with these local peoples from the coast to as far east as those who later formed the Kingdom of Asmanakashra, but many more of their brethren found no place in the small space of these lowlands, cramped as they were after the arrival of a lurch of people pouring inward as if the levy of the Greater Caucasus which once separated two worlds alien to one another had burst, and instead chose to push onward into the mountains to the south, spreading in all directions and hunting for whatever small abundances might be found in their alpine surroundings.
Massifs rise from underfoot across the plateau of the Armenian Highlands where Anyan has become the dominant culture and language, but divisions have already formed in this people. Wars were fought. Battles raged. Subjugation. The harsh topography of these lands and divisions between those original tribes who made the journey south drive the Anyana apart and erode their united identity like rivers splitting from one source in a delta before rushing out to sea, quickened by the absorption of local people's ways of life in the disparate and nascent polities forming among their culture. Some of the tribes have become wary of one another, others hostile and others more simply apathetic toward the Anyana living elsewhere in the plateau where even a few miles distance divided by a range of peaks can feel a world away.
The tribe Moradaya trace their lineage to a number of deva, beings akin to spirits or gods, the stories of their genesis passed down through the generations by oral recital and never received by the youth in quite the same manner or meaning each telling. Those travelers journeying across the Lesser Caucasus have heard the myths of their tribe’s origins many times, so often each might recite the tales from memory, as they did in the company of one another as solace for their otherwise pitiful position in a false remembrance of their greater past. The content of those myths is for another time than this. Their tribe has yet to find a home where they might permanently achieve peaceability and rest. For years they have searched, living scattered about Anyan lands, but this will soon be no more.
The band of men and women and children with their horses and all the belongings they managed to pack for the journey set their ambitions on the valley where meets a moot of all the Moradaya. For too long they have gone without a chieftain holding any true vision, but with the death of Small Vanga, deva bless his spirit, comes an opportunity to appoint a new ruler, one who might lead them to the home of which they have long dreamt. The winter journey for them has been grueling, but their ways demand a new chieftain be elected as soon as all the clan chiefs are able to convene. In that band marching beneath the slopes and now in the belly of a ravine, scrawny trees twisting and fighting each other for the scant light of the sun that makes it down all the way, Skoda goes with his family and a small number of his most trusted men to represent his clan, the Donsudra, and their wishes at the moot.
All free men are welcome to participate in the moot and the election of a new chieftain, but the clan chiefs are shouldered with the extra responsibilities of negotiating the affair and preventing strife at the results of the tribe’s decision. Skoda’s young age once made other chiefs wary of his abilities to lead, but since then he proved himself to be a skilled warrior and therefore, in their eyes, a leader in his campaigns against the Urartians, the native inhabitants of this alpine plateau, and many favor him to become the new chieftain.
After weeks of travel through winding mountain passes, Skoda and their band reach the banks of Soinya Marea, Lake Sevan, the water frozen therein beginning to thaw as spring emerges. Thin trees with leaves stripped and dead bushes and lichen growing on rocky outcroppings dot the hilly landscape. Smoke rises in the distance. Others from Moradaya had already arrived and created a camp where they weathered the remains of the cold season waiting to elect the new chieftain. Skoda’s band sets up their own tents in the disorganized array of other temporary homes along a network of mud pounded into the ground by feet of people buzzing around the camp. Tired from their journey, he rests.
They are some of the last to arrive, and soon after making their place all the clan chiefs are present on those banks, and the moot is called. They meet at the debouch of a stream snaking down to the idle water along an escarpment and flowing inside, the shallow depths gurgling over a bed of rocks. Men of other kinds have trodden these lands for hundreds of thousands of years since the age of Acheulean stone, and now rills formed in the mud by surface water from the melting snow are trampled underfoot as they gather into a haphazard circle, a little empty space in the center.
Clans Donsudra, Ibera, Kudogre, Paraba, Velun and Festuda all convene here. Besides Skoda, other favorites for chieftain are Oruges, son of the late Small Vanga, and Ekpuda, the wise and elderly leader of the Paraba. The law speaker initiates the day, and the shaman says a prayer and performs a ritual, and the thing begins. Oruges boasts of his own grandeur, standing in the center of the crowd who send cheers and jeers alike his way.
"He should be chieftain!"
"Someone older like Ekpuda ought to be in charge!"
"His father led us to ruin, and he'll do the same!"
They argue for some time with no resolution.
"Quiet, children." Ekpuda waves a single hand in the air, and soon all are silent. "I am too old to lead. That job belongs to those whose lives are still more ahead than behind them."
A murmur grows in the crowd.
"But, I must admit, I doubt Oruges' abilities as a leader, even if I respected his father."
A roar. Everyone was up in arms and yelling.
"I don't see anyone better!"
"Vanga's spawn is too weak!"
"Who else will be chieftain?"
Skoda walks to the center, the walls of which now undulate in the mass of upset bodies. "I will lead us."
After much deliberation and arguing, Skoda is narrowly elected as Moradaya's new chieftain, the first ever from clan Donsudra. He sets his mind on the task of finding his people a land on which they may grow and prosper, and these thoughts occupy every still moment for over a year until an opportunity presents itself.
The Urartian kingdom of Ushnu to the south had fallen into a state of civil war over the rights of inheritance pertaining to their king, and Skoda decides to take the opportunity and strike.
The war effort on part of the Moradaya is successful, and they drive out the rulers of Ushnu, known to them as Ošneš, and take over the land with their armies. They expand east into the territory of tribes Urartian and Iranian alike and settle them as their own.
Ošneš rests west of the endorheic lake of brine, Unya Marea, or Lake Urmia as it might be known to us. Fed by rivers, the lake lets loose none of its water except in evaporation, a draconic beast hoarding its wealth for itself. A place of stagnancy, though much life calls the lands around home. There exist many plots of arable terrain here, and it seems to all Moradaya, Skoda first of all, a good place to settle. To the east of this great salt pond is a river valley sandwiched by mountains north and the stratovolcano which looms over all therein and will soon become a place of great spiritual power south. Here, the Moradaya found a city, that of Majadaragand, the City of the Middle Valley.
For some time, perhaps a century or so, the Moradaya have called these lands home. The Urartians of the old kingdom of Ushnu still do so too, though they are in the process of being subsumed into Anyan ways of life, an integration which lends to the growing distinction between Moradaya and other Anyana. The real history of their conquests merges with legend, birthing new myths among the tribe's members now growing fat off the land. This is how the Moradaya came into their home.

2023.06.10 18:36 mc__Pickle Thoughts on "Capitalism is my ADHD Nightmare” - Exploring Alternatives where work can be optional.
EDIT added TLDR: TLDR: Advancements in technology as they are today can make work, as we currently understand it, optional.
I came across the post
discussing how capitalism feels like an ADHD nightmare. I wanted to say that I agree but also wanted to share my thoughts on the matter.
Especially here in ADHD subreddit where we have such capacity for out-of-the-box thinking and looking past the status quo.
Like many of you, I've often felt hopeless and out of place within the confines of capitalism. However, before we lose all hope, there are a few things worth considering that might inspire you to connect the dots on your own.
Several comments on that post expressed frustration with capitalism, the relentless pursuit of maximizing shareholder value, and the perpetual need to work. While it may seem like there are no other options, that's not necessarily true
. There is a case for a scenario where work, as we currently understand it, becomes optional.
We often use the phrase "earning a living" to describe the necessity of working just to survive in today's system. This holds true in the current system but let's explore things from a different perspective.
As they are today, advancements in technology, automation, robotics, and AI, are enough to sustain most of everyone’s basic needs (things you need to survive, to live). Things like food and other necessities can be produced in abundance and distributed for free.
When something can be produced at little to no cost and in abundant quantities, its value or price can
** plummet or even disappear altogether (check out the concept of scarcity). This could give a whole new meaning to the phrase "earning a living."
Work could become voluntary (e.g.: to give you an option to work, so you can obtain non-basic/luxury products that currently cannot be produced at no-cost - if you so desire).
** unless scarcity is created artificially (happens in capitalism)
Voluntary work? So, no one would work like ever? Yes and No.
Some people might choose not to work, but I believe that majority would want to work, here is why:
I was on holiday this week, away from the city. The first 2-3 days I went exploring the forests, mountains, lakes, I then did a whole lot of nothing, chilling out. Days were long, nice, and relaxing. On day 4, I felt like working
, not on the things I have to do for my job but on my own projects, ideas. Imagine the amount of creativity and innovation that can come from people working on things they are interested in, because they want to
Without 'I have to go to work tomorrow' to put the food on the table hanging over their heads.
The point here is that not everyone can do nothing forever
; most people would eventually become bored and seek productive activities. And if they happen to contribute to sustaining, maintaining, improving, or innovating the new system
(that provides all our basic needs for free), they could be compensated. This compensation would enable them to acquire the luxury products that currently cannot be produced at low or no cost, should they desire them
This is just a small glimpse of what's possible. It's not science fiction; many individuals and communities worldwide are actively designing, prototyping, and even running small-scale trials of such systems. There are people out there, just like you and me, thinking and working on realistic solutions.
Achieving this won't be easy or quick, but it's absolutely possible, and it's happening today.
You may or may not be familiar with the various names, labels, theories, and definitions associated with the concept I briefly described. At this point, I don't want to attach any particular names or labels because everything is a work in progress with nothing set in stone.
It can be anything you can imagine. With enough people agreeing on a general direction, at any scale, a club, community, city, country... wanting and working towards getting there... It may even turnout that it's easier than you think.

2023.06.10 18:29 JKnissan Could you install MacOS by installing Windows or Linux, first? ['Startup Disk' not detecting anything, can't install OS]
Hey guys. So, I've got quite a problem here. Though, as the title indicates, I might have a solution - I just want to know if it's ridiculous. (Long paragraphs ahead. Tl;dr available) Tl;dr - I've been given a Macbook Air 2011 (11") and I've wiped the drive. I can boot into internet recovery, but can't install the OS. Startup Disk doesn't detect my installation USB drives, and internet recovery reinstallation only comes up with "Recovery server could not be contacted". If somehow I could install Windows or Linux on this thing, could I install Mac OS through there?
I have recently been given a 2011 Macbook Air (11"). It was all fine and dandy, until the person who had given to me (along with my suggestion) allowed me to 'reset' / reformat the laptop. Coming from windows machines, I thought this would be easy. Plus, I did a bit of searching, and saw that the process of installing MacOS after erasing the original disk would've been easy enough. It WAS easy enough, but the hard part now is that I can't find a way to install MacOS.
- I've tried installing using a bootable USB made through TransMac (I don't have any other mac machines) + a DMG of both High Sierra (the OS that the laptop had before I wiped it), and another time using a DMG of Lion (the OS that the laptop originally had seemed to ship with). But, none of them have come up within the 'startup disk' options, which was weird, because when I went through the terminal to find them using diskutil; the USB that I had plugged in was there and had all the right information. The USB was even detected in disk utility, but it just wasn't being detected on startup disk. I also tried doing 'diskutil mount' to the USB(s), but still, to no avail. Nothing also came up when I booted the Macbook up by pressing the option/alt key trying to get to a screen that's supposed to ask me which disk to boot from. All possible key combinations would only send me into the wifi selection screen before it boots me into internet recovery mode.
- I've also tried internet recovery, both in the mode where it installs High Sierra, and in the mode where it installs Lion; but both of them come up with an error "The recovery server-" 'cannot be reached' (paraphrasing). I heard that this was because both versions of Mac are so outdated that Apple doesn't properly store copies of them on their servers anymore, so one solution was to set the date in terminal, and I've tried all sorts of dates, but none of them have seemed to change the outcome of using internet recovery mode's "Reinstall Mac OS" options.
I have been wondering if the process of installing Windows 7, 8.1, 10, or even Linux first (I run Pop OS on my main machine, so I have no problem having to fuss around with that if it means I'll be out of this OS-less purgatory) and THEN trying to install a Mac OS installer (somehow) on there and installing it from within Windows / Linux would actually work? Heck, would I even be able to install any OS at all, given that I can't even choose which disk to boot into in startup disk?
Sorry if this was all quite long-winded. I've been at this for a week now with about two browser windows and like 150 tabs, and I've done all the things that I've seen on the internet; save for perhaps taking out the SSD and replacing it or something, if it's been compromised. I've even gone through three different USB Drives to use the install media onto (granted, all using TransMac), some USB 2.0 and some USB 3.0 just to give myself the best of chances. Do note; I have high hopes that I'll still be able to salvage the hardware on this since it's still fully functional. I've just naively flubbed the OS erasure. I just really hope that I could continue to use Mac OS on this thing, or at the very least: any OS. Would be a waste of metal if I couldn't, and wouldn't be nice on my conscience to know that I've done this to the macbook when it was completely functional and working through a High Sierra install just before I wiped the darn disk, haha. Is this a hopeless situation?

2023.06.10 18:16 Crimsonhead4 Offset Romeo 5
I’m trying to offset mount a Romeo 5 red dot on my sub 2000 but when I try to fold it the tube presses a little against the red dot and causes it to fold a little off center. Will this create problems later with the folding mechanism or will this be ok?

I have been on Wegovy for about 20 months. It didn’t seem like it at first but looking at it now it has been life changing for me. Started at 267 and now at 205. Been stuck at 205 for awhile now. But I also did not have a great diet and did not really exercise much. I just started to exercise a lot more and eating healthy. I need to take advantage of this now and change my life style so I don’t gain back. I have had no side affect at all, just seen my Dr and he just continued my prescription of 2.4 and wrote me one for 3 boxes for 3 refills for the next 9 months. So perhaps he knows something about possible shortages idk. I pay a 65 dollar co pay. Good luck to everyone out there starting off.
