I left for vacation for 10 days, my cousin took care of my gecko Pebbles. I got back today and her tail seems quite small, it wasn’t super fat to begin with but considerably larger still. Aside from that I’m afraid she may be impacted, can y’all tell by these pictures if she is? Also she currently weighs 38g and I believe she’s around 9 months so if she’s super underweight now I’d like to know thanks. submitted by Dank_Toastey to leopardgeckosadvanced [link] [comments]
2023.05.29 03:52 Melodic-Coconut6323 Dilemma: My friends don't take my want/need for 9-10 hours of sleep seriously
I need some advice on how to handle this because I still want a social life and I do like my friends a lot. Let me start off by saying that I've suffered from insomnia my whole life. It's a lot better than it used to be but I still wake up about 5-6 times a night. So my sleep is pretty disrupted. I'm also a shift worker so that makes things even worse. My friends don't seem to care about getting enough sleep like I do. They'll stay up until midnight and then get up at 6-7am. Which is totally fine if it works for them, but it does not work for me. If I do that I am absolutely wrecked the next day and it just keeps getting worse and worse if I don't prioritize sleep. I have told them many times that I have trouble sleeping and that I feel like I need to give myself 9-10 hours between when I go to bed and when I need to wake up to get enough rest and feel okay. They always act shocked when I say that. But the most annoying thing is that when I tell them that I can go out with them but I need to be in bed by a certain time, I always end up going to bed later. This is usually because someone else has driven and then doesn't take me seriously when I remind them. They end up taking their time getting ready to go back and this drives me insane. I feel like they just don't respect that boundary of mine and I don't know why. It drives me even more insane when they try to convince me to get up really early for something after we've stayed out late and can't understand/seem almost offended when I try to stick to my sleep schedule. I think it's because they really just cannot relate to me (because they've never experienced sleep problems) or maybe they just don't care about their health as much as I do. Now don't get me wrong, they are really good friends in every other way. These are not toxic people. They are there for me through the good, the bad, and the really bad. I can always count on them when I need help. But this sleep thing is driving me insane and makes me want to decline any evening invitation unless I have direct control over when I can leave and go home. How do I deal with this?

2023.05.29 03:51 Marjixx [S1] Crow Police is Recrowting! [Top 10 Guild]
2023.05.29 03:51 wickedkiss85 I think I hate my sister-in-law
I’ve never hated anyone before. Not my parents and grandparents who abused me, the partners that cheated on me (or the girls they cheated with), or even the terrible friends who fat-shamed me behind my back but were super nice to my face.
But the level of animosity I (29F) feel towards my sister-in-law (28F) is something I have never experienced before.
I grew up in poverty. I spent time on the streets as a teenager because I was fat, goth, and queer, and my parents weren’t supportive or loving in the slightest. And while I can admit that my in-laws are not exactly the most emotionally available or affectionate people, I have never once seen them fail to put their daughter’s needs above everyone else’s — including their son’s (30M) needs, who I am married to.
But if you were to ask her about her parents, everything she would have to say would be about how abusive and cold they were. Ask my husband, however, and he would say, “Oh they were. Just not to her.” My in-laws started going to therapy a few years ago and openly admitted to everything they put my husband through, right down to favoring his sister over him. It was an emotional breakthrough in their relationships and his bond with them has only grown stronger since then.
My sister-in-law sees this as them favoring him (and by extension, me) over her.
My in-laws are very wealthy people, and when my husband and I got married a few years ago, we were living with them due to roommates who would not comply with COVID restrictions, and at the time I was caretaking for my father with cancer. We were afraid to put off our ceremony any longer because of my father’s health and had a very small, backyard wedding in order to make sure he could be there.
Because we couldn’t have the wedding we always wanted, my in-laws decided that they wanted to buy us a house as a wedding gift. I didn’t want that because I didn’t want to feel like we owed them, but they said as long as we were open to letting my sister-in-law live in our basement, as she was leaving a toxic relationship at the time, they wouldn’t hold it over our heads. We agreed.
We never should have.
From the minute she moved in with us, she controlled everything. If she thought we would paint the walls a color she didn’t like, she would call her parents and complain. We wanted to get a second dog, and since she already had more than 10 pets and was told not to bring more into the home, she screamed that it wasn’t fair and threatened to harm herself over it. When we were trying to conceive, she said it was emotionally triggering for her because she believes she will never bare children of her own, so we reluctantly decided to stop trying.
Then she moved her new boyfriend (30M) into our house without asking. And we had never even met him.
He told us he had kids, but his ex fled the state with them and that he would be unlikely likely to bring them around. We encouraged him to pursue custody, while my sister-in-law would actively tell him, “You’ll probably never see them again anyway.” She’s an inherently pessimistic person in that way. It made me angry. Still, he stayed. And then he proposed. And then they got married.
And no, they didn’t move out. In fact, she started pressuring us to leave. She knew we wanted to move to a larger city, but I have two younger disabled siblings that I help my older sister care for, not to mentioned three nieces that I love as my own. When my nieces would come over to stay a weekend with me, my sister-in-law would complain and whine that she felt trapped downstairs because being around the kids was too “triggering” for her and her husband (who never complained to us about them being here). When she accused them of being so loud that it “nearly killed one of her rabbits” (even though they were on two separate ends of the house and her husband said they didn’t actually hear much of anything), I finally hit my limit when my father-in-law said, “It’s for the best if you just don’t bring the girls over there for the night again.”
And then, just a couple weeks ago, they received full custody of his kids and she has rubbed it in my face non-stop since they got here.
“I can’t believe I get to be a mom. It’s so amazing.”
But the second the kids go to bed for the night, she comes to my husband complains that they are too energetic and out of control. She complains that her husband is spoiling them too much and is a lazy father. He works full time and is on-call during the weekends. She doesn’t do anything at all for work, but mothering and chores are apparently “totally breaking her down”.
This woman knows that I am struggling with my reproductive health because I am chronically ill, and that my husband and I have been wanting to start our family for fucking years. And then a family just falls into her lap and not only does she have the audacity to complain about it, she even had the nerve to say to my face on Mother’s Day, “I’m just not optimistic about it. If I can’t have kids of my own physically I don’t see how you ever can.”
She is the most manipulative, entitled, and selfish person that I have ever met. She never thinks of anyone besides herself, and she never does a single thing unless it also benefits her.
And now, on top of everything else, we have to leave our house because the state won’t let them keep the kids if they don’t have them “in the proper space”, and having two separate families sharing a four bedroom, two bathroom house isn’t the “proper” space. And according to my in-laws, well, “Since you guys don’t have kids yet, they kind of need that house more than you do.”
My husband is insisting that we use this time to move to a new city, like we’ve wanted, but we have nothing financially prepared and we only have weeks before we have to be out. And that means getting no time to say goodbye to my family, not even my nieces, before we go.
I blame my sister-in-law for this. For all of this. I lost out on a puppy because of her, on time with my family because of her, and on committing to fertility treatments because of her. She has made my life a living fucking Hell, and I don’t want anything to do with her ever again.
TL;DR: My sister-in-law moved in with my husband and I a few years ago, and all she has done is fight to manipulate and control everything that happens in my house and in my life. Her actions have directly affected everything from my husband and I not getting a second dog, to whether or not we have kids of our own, and now I have to move away from my family because she is taking ownership of my house. I feel like she’s tried to ruined my life and I don’t ever want to see her face or hear her voice again once we move out.

2023.05.29 03:51 Krieger117 Reducing humidity in house
I had a new AC unit installed about a year ago. Ever since then, the humidity in my house has been high, it usually hovers around 55-60%. I would like to get it somewhere between 45-55%, for comfort and energy reasons.
When they replaced my ac unit, they removed the plenum going to the air filter, just leaving a boxed area with some insulation, studs, and drywall on the intake of the unit.
When the blower motor would turn on, I would end up with positive pressure in the house. Anything that would allow air outside of the envelope of my house would show airflow going outside the house. This led me to look at the intake side of the unit. I am assuming it is pulling air from outside the envelope of the living areas (air handler is in the garage, so in a different envelope).
I removed the filter and frame the other day and went looking inside the area on the intake. The studs are metal and had precut holes in them to allow wiring through. These allowed air to be pulled in from the attic (non climate controlled/vented to outside). I sealed as many gaps as I could find with aluminum tape and expanding foam. I'm still seeing airflow going outside the air envelope of the living areas, leading me to think there is a large pressure differential between the intake of the unit and the exhaust of the unit.
When I remove the filters from the intake of the unit, this pressure differential drops significantly. I no longer see air being sucked/pushed outside the envelope of the living area.
The air handler and evaporator are 3.5ton. House is 1500sqft, central FL. Cooling cycles average around 10-12 minutes. 2 air filters are on the unit (I installed a secondary intake with another air filter). One filter is 20x25, the other is 18x24. Both air filters are MERV 5.
I'm pretty much at a loss at what to do here. I'm 99% sure I have an air leak somewhere, but no idea where. My parents house and my girlfriends house both hover around 45-50%, and are much more comfortable. I also have electronics in the house which create a significant cooling load, so my humidity should be even lower seeing as the unit is running more often.
If anybody could give me tips it would be super helpful. I've spent months trying to figure out what the issue is.

2023.05.29 03:49 OWCHEDDARTOOSHARP Please excuse my ramblings
Idk what to say here I just feel I need to type this shit out to get out of my head.
I've been up pretty much since Thursday, maybe an hour or two of sleep here or there but yeah. I don't want to be this high anymore. I hate this so fucking much.
I thought I was doing better lately I quit smoking weed for the first time in 10 years, I quit a 5 year kratom habit. I stopped accepting free Adderall and coke from coworkers, and quit the job that allowed me to do all this and pretend I was functioning for the last 4 years.
I felt amazing being sober.. that only lasted like a month or two. I was just so bored in my freetime and had absolutely 0 motivation. I wanted to get high again, and kept having dreams about it. Soo, of course I convinced myself to try getting some pressed addies to satiate the cravings, which I did, and binged on them a few days that month, then couldn't find anymore. They didn't hit like I wanted anyway. So because I don't have any other plugs, and they didn't get me where I wanted, I did a little research, learned PGP and 4 days later here I am, stuck, still high as hell after my last dose almost 30 hour's ago.
I have work first thing in the morning and I don't know how much sleep Ill be getting. Im so fucking stressed out, I already fucked up doing this same shit the night I got my bag, and still didn't ducking learn? And now I have less that 10hours before I have to be there and I'm typing this bullshit for what.
;tldr I fucked up, and apparently I'm an addict I guess.

2023.05.29 03:49 The_dots_eat_packman [Railroad Preservation] People have been debating what color a defunct railroad painted its steam locomotives longer than I’ve been alive.
This post expands on a comment I made in last week's scuffle thread about a multi-decade disagreement about what color the now-defunct Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad (D&RGW) used to paint its steam locomotives and by extension, what color the 491, a now-restored locomotive operating at the Colorado Railroad Museum (CRM), should have been painted during her restoration. Tie a red bandanna around your neck, grab some popcorn, and sit back for a two-for-one hobby history and drama.
First, three short disclosures. One, I am associated with CRM, but I did not participate in the restoration of 491. Second, I have no preference what color 491 should be, I'm just glad she’s running. Third, 491 uses she/her pronouns. That’s not woke, it's historically accurate. Deal with it, you friggin’ lopsided, melting snowflake.
Before we get to the drama, let’s get a bit of context and background. The D&RGW railroad was founded in 1870 and eventually became a part of Union Pacific in the 1990s. D&RGW built and operated routes in the US states of Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico. For a long time, these tracks were among the very few ways to easily travel west of Denver and through the Rocky Mountains. Those corridors were, and still continue to be, foundational parts of the US rail network.
Over time, D&RGW became renowned around the world for operating in some of the most beautiful but technically difficult terrain in North America. The passenger trains themselves became destinations, and the mountainous routes fascinated historians, railroad photographers, and model railroaders. Seriously--just look at this train going up a mountain like a goat
. In addition, the railroad was notable for operating an extensive network of "narrow gauge" tracks—the rails were 3' apart instead of the standard 4' 8.5". Without getting too far into the technical weeds, narrow gauge worked better than standard in mountainous terrain.
Another thing that made the D&RGW a darling among railroad enthusiasts is that while they got rid of the steam locomotives on its mainline tracks in late 1940s or early 50s, just like most other railroads did, they kept on chuggin' down the narrow gauge tracks until 1968
. To put that in perspective, that's the year the White Album came out, and the year that Planet of the Apes and Night of the Living Dead were released. 1968 was the year before Woodstock and Apollo 11, and only 15 years before the Internet was invented.
1968, in other words, is incredibly recent. It is within the lifespan of some of you reading this post. It should be kept in mind that when we talk about the D&RGW and the 491’s service life, those things, while distant, have not yet faded into history. There are many still-living people who worked on this railroad, operated specific pieces of equipment, and saw it around their communities. There are far more people who had a father, grandfather, uncle, or other relative involved in this industry. We aren’t discussing events in the distant past, and the people who care about this aren’t just hyper-fixated arcane details of history. For many people, the presence of this railroad, and the continued preservation of its remnants, are intensely personal.
Before we move on, let's take a moment to get some additional context on how railroads used color on their equipment. Today, you might notice that most railroads have a set "livery" that they paint on their locomotives. (UP yellow, BNSF orange, CSX blue, ect.) Prior to about 1900, steam locomotives were just as colorful, and were often decorated with elaborate trimmings made of polished metal. This is actually where the idiom "all the bells and whistles" comes from. Most toys, clip art pictures, and children's television programs depict steam locomotives from this era.
However, after about 1900, the appearance of most steam locomotives became far more utilitarian. The Victorian maximalist style had fallen out of favor across the board, especially after the wars, and most railroads in the US accordingly preferred unembellished equipment. Now, their locomotives were most often painted black with minimal amounts of gray, white, or silver trimming.
By about 1900, railroads companies had also noodled out that keeping a brightly colored and decorated locomotive clean enough that it didn't reflect poorly on the company required a lot
of labor. Remember, these machines— this is worth harping on both because it's going to be a plot point in a little bit and because modern readers might not fully grasp what “steam power” means—are ON FIRE AT ALL TIMES WHILE OPERATING. A very messy chain of events results from this intrinsic property: 1.Where there’s fire, there’s smoke.
- Where there’s smoke and exhaust steam going out the same smokestack, there is the creation of a thick, jet-black sludge of train-dirt.
- The smokestack belching train-dirt is attached to a locomotive that is usually moving forward, which means that cancerous inky puke blows back onto any and every part of the locomotive situated behind the smokestack.
If anything on the locomotive isn’t painted black, in other words, it will very quickly become
black unless it is being cleaned almost daily. Since corporate penny-pinching is always historically accurate, most railroads did the math and realized it was better for their bottom line to paint things the same color as train-dirt than it was to pay people to clean up train-dirt.
There were some exceptions to this preference. Often, railroads painted passenger locomotives to distinguish them from freight locomotives or to fit into the paint scheme used for every piece of equipment on a specific train. Two good extant and operable examples of colorful locomotives are the Southern Pacific 4449
and the Norfolk & Western 611
. Other railroads preferred colorful, but very dark shades of paint for at least some of their locomotives. One of those railroads just so happened to be the D&RGW: There's documented evidence that instead of using black, they painted some of their locomotive a shade of dark green. For the curious, it is approximately hex code 1E3D0E.
Speaking of D&RGW, let's jump back to the 1960s and introduce the specific steam locomotive at the center of this drama: D&RGW no. 491. For you nerds—you know who you are—she is a K-37 Class superheated, outside-frame, 2-8-2 Mikado. She and nine other K-37s were built in-house by the D&RGW in 1928. 491 was taken out of revenue service in 1963.
As an aside, it was actually really rare for railroads to build their own steam locomotives. D&RGW decided to do this because of an entirely different historical drama which, though at the time was complex enough to max out the character limits of gossipy telegrams, can with hindsight be briefly summarized as:
Baldwin Locomotive Works: "Fuck you, pay me."
Luckily for the K-37s, by the time they were taken out of service, there had emerged a very dedicated coalition of people actively working to preserve steam power in general and Colorado’s unique railroad history specifically. They were resoundingly successful: All but 8 of the 10 K-37 locomotives, and numerous examples of many other classes, were saved. All tolled, there are about 15 former D&RGW steam locomotives in operable condition or being considered for restoration at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, the Cumbres & Toltec railroad, and the Colorado Railroad Museum. Additionally, most of the heritage railroads in Colorado operate on routes decommissioned by the D&RGW.
Two of the K-37s—the 491 and the 493—have been restored to operating condition. The 491 got her second lease on life at CRM in the early 2000s-2010s, and the Durango & Silverton returned the 493 to service in 2020.
While D&S made some purposeful modifications to 493 to render her more suited to 21st century operation, CRM set out with the goal of restoring 491 as close to historically accurate condition as possible. They were in fact contractually bound to do so, since the museum had applied and received significant funding from the Colorado State Historical Fund, and the terms of that grant required that any change made to the locomotive would have to be backed up by records or photographs preserved from her days in revenue service.
That should be easy, right? We just talked about those revenue days that were very recent, didn't we? Hit the independent brake and the automatic brake and throw on a handbrake just for good measure, because historical accuracy can be VERY tricky for railroad preservation.
Given that, the revenue service life of most pieces of equipment was, on average, about 40 years, many have been overhauled or significantly modified while in service. Others have been subjected to "Red Green this thing out of my shop and get it back on the mainline" types of repairs that, while technically accurate to the period, were not the typical or best practice and are inappropriate in a preservation setting.
There are, in other words, sometimes multiple and equally well documented versions of “historically accurate,” and it becomes a matter of opinion as to which one is best to recreate. Because of the very powerful personal connections to the equipment we discussed earlier, those opinions are often VERY passionate. It's at this point where we FINALLY where we get to the meat of this drama, because the restoration of the 491 put one specific question in the crossfires of that passion:
What color did the D&RGW paint the 491 and, more importantly, what color should CRM paint her?
Most people assumed that since the 491 showed up at the museum painted almost all black and silver, she would be painted the same way during her restoration. However, given that she had been in service for 35 years, it was possible that she had been repainted at least once or twice. In fact, for a long time, and I mean longer that the internet has even been around long, there has been a dogged faction of people who that believed the 491 operated at least some of her revenue service with her boiler jacket(a thin, metal sheet that holds insulation against the boiler and protects the boiler itself from the elements) painted dark green. As evidence, they pointed to old shop records, a few eyewitness testimonies, and cans of paint found in various facilities. This faction made it known that they wished the 491 to be painted green, and those who preferred black or thought black was better documented raised their objections.
It should have been easy to figure out which color was 'correct,' right? Didn’t you say there are records? There are, but the catch is that while those records amount to a pretty good body of evidence that the D&RGW used green paint at some point, on some of its locomotives, they don't provide a comprehensive record of exactly which locomotives were painted what color at what time. There’s nothing substantive that the 491 herself was painted green.
The next best bet, you'd think, would be to look at photographs. Unfortunately, this isn't reliable. Most of the revenue service photographs of the 491 and her sisters are in black and white, and it is difficult to conclusively determine which colors are being depicted, especially when they are very similar like black and the shade of green in question. Team Green indicated that some pictures render the boiler jacket in slightly lighter shades of gray, meaning it must be a different color, and Team Black counters that the difference might be due to shadows or that paint being more glossy than what was used on other components. Besides, they say, if 491 had been painted green, wouldn't more people REMEMBER her that way? Team Green has a hand answer for that, too: The K-37s simply spent most of their service lives too dirty for the green paint to be seen. That sounds like a stupid ass-pull of an answer, but until we cleaned her up a few weeks ago, I genuinely forgot that 491 was (spoiler alert) painted green.
For YEARS, this was such a hot debate that it probably could have raised 491 up to operating pressure. Some of the source threads I’ve linked to are from the early 2000s—note that many of them mention discussing this issue in the 80s and 90s—and this debate was brought up in pre-internet railfan publications and correspondences. It came to a head when, in the process of the restoration, staff at CRM found flecks of green paint while inspecting and cleaning 491 for restoration. The samples were collected, compared against known samples, and shown to people who were familiar with 491 and other D&RGW locomotives while in service. This exhaustive, almost forensic investigation proved that the 491 had, in fact, been painted green, so proponents of a black boiler jacket revised their position in the face of new evidence.
Just kidding of course.
While there was no question that CRM's restoration of 491 was very well done, there was, and is, a lot of grousing about whether those paint flecks were enough to prove that she was ever painted green. Some say that they were not present in great enough quantities to prove definitively that the paint came from the 491 or to determine exactly what parts of the locomotive had been painted that color.
Others point out that while the 491 and her sisters were built by the D&RGW, the railroad used boilers that had been assembled by Baldwin Locomotive Works earlier than 1928. Unless their customers requested otherwise, Baldwin painted the locomotives and parts it produced green as a default. The presence of the flakes, this opinion states, is only proof that the boiler was painted green at some point, not that it was painted green while it was part of 491.
The complicating factor is that Baldwin appears to have been very inconsistent with how they mixed up their “Baldwin Green:” Sometimes it was a very dark emerald. Other times, as with some paint on the tender 100% established to be Baldwin Green, it is an almost tan shade of olive green. Since we don’t have extant representations of all of those variations, the counterargument goes, we can’t definitively rule out that the boiler jacket samples came from Baldwin.
The most vehement of the anti-green coalition imagined a full-tilt, “Red Alert, folks, Andi in Kansas, you're on the air
” level conspiracy about where the paint chips actually came from. They propose that they might have been, *ahem,* conveniently
put there by someone who definitely wasn’t a D&RGW employee and who most certainly was not working on the 491 between 1928 and 1963. I don’t want to say much on this, because these folks just won’t be convinced, but that opinion is out there.
Who was convinced that the chips were good evidence, though, was the State Historical Fund, which approved changing the color of 491's boiler jacket to green. That’s how she is to this very day. There’s still some grousing that the she should have been painted black, and the broader debate about exactly which members of the D&RGW fleet was painted green is still a point of contention among narrow gauge railroad enthusiasts. I want to stress again that even though this drama might seem overwrought, most of it comes from a heartfelt dedication to preserving things “correctly,” and very personal reasons to prefer a certain version of “correct.”
I’m going to end this post, though, by saying this: It doesn't really matter what color the 491 actually is, because we also strive for historical accuracy in how often we wipe her down.
Finally, if you ever get a chance to visit the museums or heritage railroads mentioned here or others that weren't relevant, please by all means do so! There are many people working as hard as they can to keep this history alive, and we can always use your support and patronage.

2023.05.29 03:49 motherfudgersob Inheritance issues with siblings as mother's POA and Executor.
My mother died this past week after an sudden onset volvulus (twisting if bowel). My brother and sister were co-POA for general and health care matters. They decided surgery was uncalled for out her in hospice to die and after over three days of no fluids if course she did.
All her investments were in CDs (600k+/-) with all three children listed as "pay on death." She'd had her funds that way for many many years). She became unable to manage Ian affairs die to vision issues about a year ago and then some mild cognitive problems starting about six months ago. My brother and sister reinvested all the CDs due to rate increases as her POA and did so through my brother in law who is a certified financial planner (I know big whoop). I have no idea if they structured them as pay on death with my name included.
She sold her home as the mortgage holder to my sister and brother-in-law (the financial planner) and they still have 10+ years of payments I believe. She gave them great terms. She was competent when she made that decision and minding her own affairs.
She has money tied up in a small IRA. And she put a mid 6 figure down payment for her retirement community and some of that is to come back to relatives.
She told me many times over the years she wanted her money distributed evenly between her kids when quite lucid (she was really quite lucid until inset if sever twisted bowels). I was not any POA participant as I live far away.
I loathe my brother and sister and I assume they feel the same. I neither trust them to do right by me as a sibling or remain inside legal or ethical parameters. I think it was unethical and possibly illegal for a POA to use the incapacitated person's funds for their own benefit which seems like what investing this through my brother-in-law was doing. She had never invested with him before cause she's low risk and he's an grinning idiot.
So I am wanting to get her medical records as I think my siblings and the hospital acted improperly (I'm in healthcare and her living will only asked for no "heroic measures which the surgery that could have saved her dies NIT seem...to me...to be). I also obviously can wait and see what I get before assuming the worst but not sure if I should act now before these CDs are cashed out without my name on them possibly. It'd seem incredibly hard to get them back then.
Do I have a right as a named beneficiary if the will to her medical records. Any way to get them?
How about records if her finances over the last year?
What should I do about the CDs. Act in some way now or wait?
Can I for e them to pay off the estate for the remainder owed in the house (the cash they inherit is more than enough to do so)?
Of note I have multiple voice recordings (hundreds actually as I wanted them for remembrances) and she stated clearly often these wishes for her money to be split three ways between us.
Finally an ominous note is that she'd said which personal property she wanted who to have. My sister got diamond and gold jewelry. But they callously threw out the rest including heirlooms intended for me. They wanted cash rich salable items...I wanted heirlooms. My brother also ominously told me I needed to be careful with my investments (seemed to me to imply "that's because you're not getting anything from mother.")
Any advice greatly appreciated.

2023.05.29 03:48 B_Huij Help me diagnose my mysterious shrimp deaths?
I have a high-light, CO2-injected 10g I've had set up and planted for a little over a month. Before adding any livestock, I took the time to let the plants get established, let a lot of the tannins leach out of the large piece of mopani that serves as my only hardscape, dial in the proper fertilizing scheme and CO2 injection, and of course cycle the tank.
Here are the relevant parameters:
- Temp stable between 76-79 degrees F
- 120gph filtration nominal (Oddyssea CFS 130 canister filter) - almost no surface agitation, but a reasonable current and water movement
- Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, I keep Nitrates hovering around 30ppm (never higher than 40)
- My water is hard - 13 dGH and 8 dKH
- pH sits stable at 8.0 when the CO2 is not running, and gets only as low as 7.6 when CO2 reaches its daily peak at 30ppm.
- All water is treated with Seachem Prime to dechlorinate before adding to the tank during water changes. Tap water has no ammonia and no nitrates in it.
- CO2 injection from 1pm to 9pm, which peaks at 30ppm in the evening
- High lighting (Finnex Stingray 2 20") from 3pm to 11pm
- From 10:30pm to 2:30am, I run an airstone to re-oxygenate the water and quickly offgas the CO2. I believe it drops CO2 concentration from ~30ppm to 0 within a few hours... at least if my pH readings and drop checker are to be believed
- I am EI dosing dry fertilizers - KNO3, KH2PO4, and K2SO4, as well as EDTA Micromix on alternate days. 50% water changes weekly.
- Montecarlo carpet which is growing, but far from being full or covering the bottom (Black Diamond blasting sand over potting soil)
- Java moss on the driftwood, which is also growing very well
- I got a little bit of diatom activity cropping up when I was actively adding ammonia to the tank to fishless cycle it. As well as a little bit of what looks like possibly hair algae, but nothing too concerning yet. I also have the normal fungus-looking biofilm that grows on new driftwood. Nothing to be concerned about, I believe, and I suspect this will go away as I keep parameters stable and plants growing quickly enough to outcompete the algae.
Two days ago, I finally added livestock after confirming that the tank could take 4ppm of ammonia, and reduce it to 0 ammonia/0 nitrites within less than 24 hours:
- 6 celestial pearl danios
- 8 "mutt" neocaridina shrimp
- 2 fire red cherry shrimp
I drip acclimatized everything for an hour before introducing it into my tank.
The CPDs have been doing great. They ate that first night, and have been active, colorful, hungry, and exploring without much schooling behavior ever since. The shrimp have been behaving normally too (as near as I can tell). But the first night, one of the cherries died overnight. The following night, three of the non-cherry neocaridinas died.
I retested my water a few times in that span, and found ammonia and nitrites consistently pegged at 0, with nitrates stable at 30ppm.
Any ideas what could be killing my shrimp?

2023.05.29 03:48 ShoulderCurious3212 Hyperemesis after quitting?
Hey, so I never got a CHS diagnosis and I never reached hyperemesis stage. I quit weed consumption cold turkey 10 days ago bc I suspected the cart that I was hitting for a few weeks was making me sick. I had 5 days of bad withdrawal that included nausea and loss of appetite - I lost 10 pounds over the whole ordeal. Since day 6 onward I’ve been feeling great, my appetite is back and it’s as if I never had issues. I’m not struggling with cravings or other withdrawal symptoms anymore, just have been working on gaining my weight back. My main questions are this: how likely is it that I will randomly get hit with a hyperemesis episode even though I am sober and feel good now? Also is there a possibility I would be able to use weed in moderation in the future if I stick to edibles or flower? Thanks so much!!

2023.05.29 03:48 junsuinaai Arrhythmias
I started Vibryyd about two weeks ago and for the past four days I’ve been having really bad heart arrhythmias. They’re worse at night. I thought maybe I was needing to up my dose more quickly but the more I take, it seems the weird heart beats get worse. I also started NuvaRing birth control about the same time. From what I’ve researched, Vibryyd is more likely the cause of the problem. But I hate to stop it because it’s really made me emotionally feel great. I’m on the 20 mg now. 10 mg last week. Afraid to start 30 mg. Has anyone else had weird heart-related side effects?

2023.05.29 03:46 JesusWepthahahaha Took 3 hits of a joint and testing positive for THC.
I’m 5’0, 160 pounds, 26F. Last night, I took 3 hits of a joint. I just did an at home test and it yielded positive for THC. I was a heavy chronic user but I stopped about a year ago, last night was the first time in 10 months. I’m pretty sure I have a slow metabolism, my BMI isn’t good obviously, and only 3 hits causing a positive result scares me. Does anyone know how long it’ll take for me to test below 50ng/ml? It hasn’t been 24 hours yet, but i smoked such a small amount and I feel the odds are against me. I get tested randomly so I can be called in to test as soon as 2 days from now. Any feedback helps, but I can’t do things like vitamin B, creatine, etc.. Quest labs tests for adulterants. I’m very confused as to how just 3 hits from a joint made me positive for over 50ng/ml.

2023.05.29 03:46 Thalyy720 [question] What is the easiest way to get an Apple ID Two-Factor Authentication code for IOS 6?
I own a single iDevice, an iPad 4th Gen with iOS 10.3.4 and dualboot to iOS 6.1.3, I had Game Center logged in (on iOS 6.1.3) for many many months but, it just logged me out of it the other day, I used to get the authentication code from a Mac Virtual Machine but, that doesn't seem to work as I was also logged out of it and, when I try to log in again I get the message "ICLOUD_UNSUPPORTED_DEVICE", is there any other way to get the two-factor authentication code? The best solution I feel would be to receive it through SMS but I don't think there's a way to set that to happen? I have considered purchasing an older and cheap iPhone or iPod Touch for the single purpose of getting this authentication code when I need it but, I wanted to see if any other method for getting the code is avaible.

2023.05.29 03:46 ZowkSummon Tip: Finally solved my Yuzu/Zelda Stuttering issue
| || |
I always noticed that my RAM usage gets really high while playing Zelda, MSI shows basically 100% of ram usage and task manager 16gb of my 16gb. Then, after many days of stuttering and random crash’s, I noticed that crash always happened when in task manager RAM usage hits maximum limits ( physical RAM 16gb+ stock Pagfile ram) sometimes after 5 minutes of gameplay, sometimes after 2h, but ALWAYS when RAM reach that maximum usable system page. submitted by ZowkSummon to NewYuzuPiracy [link] [comments]
at total my system had 20gb available, RAM + pagfile space
So I had an idea: what if I use a little 128gb ssd exclusively to RAM PageFiles? In this way I could set 90gb+ of space as pagfile.
As you can see, I could confirm that my preview 16gb of RAM + 4gb of pagefile wasn’t enough, the photo shows all Memory Usage during Zelda Gameplay, as you can see it manage to use 30gb, this total Was reach about 10 minutes of gameplay and have not moved far then that till the end of gameplay 2h after that.
The results: 2 areas ✍🏼
before: 33 frames after spawn in hyrule tower spawn point. After some seconds: 51 frames
After pagefile increase: 49 frames after spawn in hyrule tower spawn point. After some seconds: 60 frames
Area 2: Zoras Domain
Before: Average 52 frames around zoras kingdom, ups and downs…
After pagefile increase: 60 frames 😃
To end this thread: yes, I could notice a HUGH impact increasing windows pagefile, and I just couldn’t notice any stutter after that, it’s really amazing. My average frame rate was hit too, most places I could not achieve 60 frames, things got around the fifties, hitting some 55 frames in BETTER case scenario. Now, I’m a 60 frames Zelda user💪🏻 with rare scenarios below it.
