Agreed. Though I was at the UPS store and they had a tip jar.

I was like: who the heck tips at the UPS store?

I was told they'd always be there for me. Then my dad passed away a few years ago.

I still miss him.

Good info here.

Reminds me of that kitchen sink that started picking up AM radio.

American cars have their own subsidies as well. I mean the government bailed them out of dying several years ago.

We shouldn't have bailed them out. We should have bought a public controlling interest in them.

So I was using a wood sealer ( on my newly built catio. Unfortunately I didn't notice how much I had sprayed on the adjacent window.

Now I have cloudy/foggy windows ( I've tried cleaning them with:- - - -

  • water via the hose directly on the window.. very little progress
  • windex.. very little progress
  • dish soap followed by host.. very little progress
  • vinegar.. very little progress

Any ideas for what might get this stuff off easily?---

We got a Shahid Khan spotting.

Also got a Buck's ripped pants.

I'm excited for where this goes, but not big on an on screen authority figure.

I wouldn't be as worried about them going out of business and me being stuck with half broken car software.

Anyone here use fidelity ( I had to call to get something done with my account and thought it was weird that they have you (more/less) T9 dial your password into the system, though its not real T9 in that (for example) one press of 2 would mean either a,A,b,B,c,C,2. They say for special characters just give a * sign.

Any thoughts on if that is safe on their part? It seems weird to me since they either need the password in plaintext on their end or I guess the hash of the T9 version of the password which would be less secure anyways because of: all one case and only one type of 'special character'.

And yes: before you ask this was 100% the actual fidelity phone number: +1 800-343-3548

In their defense they did ask for other verification information once I got a person, but still felt really weird.

Any thoughts on the security of this mechanism?

Hey folks,

Is it possible to have a mlmym endpoint for Maybe

I know the lemmy ui has come a decent ways.. but sometimes I just want to look at it like old reddit. has one:

If not: no big deal. if so: would be cool.

Looking for a keyboard (
submitted 2 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

It's a sad day: My previous mechanical keyboard more/less died. Multiple keys just stopped working and even upon replacing them with new switches: still dead.

So anyways I'm looking for a keyboard with some specific features:

Anyone know of one that is:

  • full size (extra macro keys would be a bonus!)
  • rgb backlit
  • has at least one usb port on it (so it has a builtin hub of sorts) Super bonus if it also has a type c passthrough port.
  • user-swapable cherry-mx compatible switches. (bonus if it comes with browns)
  • bonus points if it can run open-source firmware
  • bonus points if it has a volume spinner-thing

I know its asking a bunch, but hey if someone has seen one of these, or has ideas: let me know.

Budget: idk, but I'd be willing to pay probably $200 ish if it was a perfect match and seemed legit.

Thanks in advance

Hey folks,

Does anyone know of an app (FOSS or otherwise) that has a built-in REST-server to get current device info?

I'd like to be able to hit the API from within my local network to get info including:

  • Free space vs used space
  • Battery percentage


I have an old Android device that sits in the closet as a Syncthing node. It does some other random stuff too. I don't really want to have to get up and look at it to find out certain information. I already have a VNC server running on it. I even have a (sketchy) SSH server on it that I currently call df -h on to programmatically get free space info. The SSH server has some weirdness where it seems to stop working after some time, among other oddities. Also it can't get battery level afaict.

I imagine this is possible using ADB, but I don't really want to have to always leave the device in wireless ADB mode or manually put it in that mode each time; unless that is easier than I think.

Obligatory: this was yesterday (1/20/24)

In the US 1/20/24 was the last day to buy stamps at the old postage rate. The flat rate for postcards was 51 cents and was going up to 53 cents the next day.

They have a concept called forever stamps for regular letters and a similar thing for postcards. If you buy them today at today's price, you can use them at any time in the future regardless of price increases. So if you'll mail letters or postcards, they're a good deal and future investment.

So anyways we ran to the post office at 4pm. The office was closed except for the self service machine. We need about 90 postcard stamps so I figured I'd get 100 to have some extras for the future.

I was so excited to see postcard stamps for 51 cents. I took a picture:

So we bought 100, which happened to be the most we can buy at once.

At that point the machine began printing 100 individual 51 cents stamps.

Now you may have noticed the issue: it wasn't 100 postcard stamps, but rather 100 stamps each saying 51 cents of value.

It took a long time as each stamp was printed one by one, but I got to stand there sad as I didn't get my forever postcard stamps.

Now to mail my postcards, I'll need to buy 2 cents of postage each (or more when it goes up again). I'll be more careful next time.

Tldr: I bought 51 cent stamps instead of postcard stamps for 51 cents.

Edit: commented with an update after a few days.

An electrician 'fixed' an issue by making this hole in a basement cinder block wall.

.. how do I put that box back in or fix the wall or something?

Inside the box are two capped (hot) wires.

The pipe seems to be copper. Doesn't bend or anything. It can't (at least easily) be pushed back in.

I had wanted to use cement paste.. but like what do I do about the box? I guess I could paste everything except the metal pipe but geez: then i still have this sketchy box hanging out.

Any ideas?

Does anyone know of a way to archive all messages in Android/Google Messages maybe older than a certain timeframe?

I have 100s of old conversations spanning back several years. I finally decided it would be nice to archive (not delete) ones that aren't relevant at the moment. The only way I figured to do this is swipe each conversation one by one.

Is there a faster way to just do it all in one swoop?

Edit: I wrote a quick script to do it via manipulating the Google Messages webui: Worked for me!

Hey folks,

Anyone have the gcode to do bed leveling and then emit the info back for the octoprint bed level visualizer?

I have an Elegoo Neptune 3 Plus.

I tried the bilevel one on the GitHub page but it seems to make my printer get stuck at home after running.

Edit: it almost seems like when it finishes it just gets stuck in the center with the extruder heat still on. Usually I have to reboot the printer to get it up again. Sort of like it wants me to go check the z offset.

Hey folks,

I'm going to pause the bot at this time. The community didn't quite take off at this point, so for now I'm going to recommend using [email protected]. I don't have the time to put in the love needed to grow it at this point.

If another member or mod wants to be added and give it love, let me know. For now I'm limiting posts to mods only.
