This bicycle repair kit I bought from LIDL comes with all the same tools as the famous Wera Tool-Check Plus but costs 11€
  • Not just that, but well-engineered bits and sockets made with solid materials are less likely to cause damage to the fasteners themselves. Which, again, if you're using it occasionally in a pinch is not a big deal, but damn... one rounded off bolt head or cammed out phillips screw can ruin your entire day in a hurry!

  • Blockbuster
  • Lately, we've cancelled most of our streaming services, and will just pick up the occasional Blu-Ray or CD that we actually WANT to watch/listen to. Also, our small town public library has a decent selection of said media to check out FOR DAMN FREE.

    There is something to be said for deliberately choosing a movie or show to watch ahead of time, and then following through on that choice. It just feels more satisfying than scrolling through an endless* list of whatever Netflix feels like shoveling out in front of you when you plop on the couch to veg.

    *Actually, in the last several years, you can't even do that. Your feed is just the same 20-30 titles sorted in different pretend categories, while 99% of the catalog is buried back behind a search so that you can barely even stumble across things you may have wanted to watch anymore.

    /old man rant over

  • For your convenience
  • Honestly, the only people using these will be the rich wannabe-redneck republicans who like to post their gun collections on instagram. It's an opportunity to virtue signal your gun fetish and nothing else.

    Vending machines are great for when you need a small amount of something on the spur of the moment--but kinda worthless for something like bullets (presumably, if you're planning ahead to have a gun on you, you would also have thought to stuff a few rounds in your pocket at least) When they start selling actual guns, then I'll be worried.

  • Assuming we don't have free will, why do we have the illusion that we do?
  • Yeah, this is it.

    And to take a slightly different tack, if the biochemical and electrical activity in your brain were not deterministic, how would you ever know? It's one thing to believe that you made a decision on your own "Free Will", but how could you possibly rewind the entire universe (or at least some sufficiently small portion of it), including your brain's exact atomic state, and re-run the experiment to know for sure? At that point, what would "Free Will" even mean?

  • Restored my faith a little
  • The fact that the post has been screenshot (screenshotted?) several times is how you know it really happened, exactly as written. If it was just text that was copy/pasted, anyone could have changed the details, or even made it up entirely. It is a little strange that noone clapped at the end... but hey, history be crazy like that.

  • whats something that brings you back to your childhood happy place?
  • Snow is a great example. As a kid, snow was freedom from school, a sculpting medium, a sledding surface, a new landscape to explore...

    As an adult, it mostly means tangled commutes and manual labor.

    Granted, a gentle snowstorm can be pretty nice when you don't have work the next day, but it doesn't have the same magic it did.

  • HDD data recovery
  • For a quick and dirty clean room run the shower really hot for a few minutes to make a bunch of steam and then wait for the humidity to naturally equalize, boom you got a few minutes to do your swap job.

    I've never heard of this... what's the idea behind it? That you get the RH near 100%, and any dust particles will be a nucleation point for water to condense on, causing them to literally rain out of the air?

  • Emphasize / De-emphasize communities

    I have no idea if this is possible to implement on the client side, but it would be really cool to be able to pick which subbed communities are emphasized or de-emphasized in your feed.

    For example if you're on a niche sub that only gets a few posts per week, maybe you want to ALWAYS see new content regardless of how many upvotes or comments it gets.

    Conversely, I enjoy a few meme subs, but right now Risa completely dominates new/hot/best filtering for me. I'd be perfectly happy just seeing the top few posts sprinkled throughout my feed.

    Printer steppers causing lights to flicker

    I've noticed for awhile now that whenever my Ender 3 S1 Pro is running, some of the lights on the same circuit will flicker seemingly in time with changes in X or Y stage movement. I'd guess that it's a combination of these stages causing minor voltage spikes/dips when they accelerate, and certain cheaper LED bulbs don't tolerate those spikes/dips well.

    Has anyone else experienced this and implemented a good fix? It seems like some kind of power smoothing/conditioning filter plugged in between the printer and the wall would help isolate it. Most of those devices seem designed to isolate the device from fluctuations in the mains, and I'm not sure if it generally works both ways (seems like it should...)

    Googling around most people are blaming similar issues on poor wiring, which I suppose could be the case even though this is a newer house. But I see very little in terms of actual proven effective fixes, even though it sounds pretty straightforward on its face.

    Advice / thoughts?

    F*$# cancer

    Not sure where else to post this, but I just learned that an old buddy lost his lengthy battle with cancer this evening after putting up a solid fight. If anyone feels like raising a glass to a random stranger, I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

    Fuck cancer, and be excellent to each other 🥃

    Opening photo in landscape mode clips off the bottom edge

    Basically, the title. When opening a photo with my phone in landscape mode, frequently the bottom 5-10% of the photo is clipped off, and I cannot scroll down or zoom out to view it. Oddly, if I zoom in enough, then I can scroll down to view the clipped part.

    I've only noticed it when my phone is rotated in landscape mode, so I'm not entirely sure if it's limited to that mode, or if a tall enough picture would cause the same thing in portrait mode

    How to remove instance login for selection menu?

    I accidentally created a guest account by tapping "browse as guest" when trying to view an instance. This created a Guest_1 account in my list of instance accounts. Is there any way to remove this?

    The Distillers - Hall of Mirrors

    Saw L7 posted yesterday, immediately reminded me of this banger from about 20 years later!

    Request: Ability to link certain view settings to different accounts

    For example, have "Show NSFW" active when logged in to one account, but disabled when switching to another. Because... reasons 😉

    I believe Jerboa has this feature (account specific view settings}

    Really enjoying the app by the way!

    PLA or PETG for shop light mounting brackets?

It can get up to about 85F in the garage on the hottest summer days, and probably a few degrees warmer by the ceiling. The lamps are cheap LED tubes, so the metal housing only gets slightly warm to the touch (say 90-100F or so). I know PLA is a bit stiffer at room temp, but I'm worried it might soften too much at the worst case of warm temperatures. > > Any thoughts on PLA vs PETG for this situation?

    PLA or PETG for shop light mounting brackets?

    I'm planning to print up a bunch of brackets to mount LED shop lights (very similar to these) to the ceiling in my garage. My plan is to use an upside-down "U" shape bracket that screws into a joist/drywall anchor in the middle and then sort of clips around the sides of the metal frame.

    Maybe filament type doesn't matter much here, but I'd rather not come out to one of the lights having fallen on my car if I can help it 😅

    I think the main considerations are just temperature and stiffness. It can get up to about 85F in the garage on the hottest summer days, and probably a few degrees warmer by the ceiling.

    Any thoughts on PLA vs PETG for this situation?
