I have a southwest-facing concrete garden which has no soil apart from some rose beds along the boundary with the neighbour. there's a lot of cracks where weeds are growing through but it's otherwise flat. it is completely soulless and I'd like to turn it into a nice garden that's both nice to look at and relax in, but also beneficial to wildlife. my current thoughts are to make different areas of the garden such as a small wildflower meadow, a secluded bamboo/japanese garden behind the shed and a normal pretty arrangement in the middle. in the plan I've uploaded
>the wildflower meadow would go in the 2m x 7m section
>the bamboo/japanese garden would go in the 2m x 2m section behind the shed OR it could be made bigger with the whole 3m x 5.6m section on the left of the shed
>the big 2.4m x 12.6m middle area (between the beds and deck I am not sure what to turn into but I want it to have nice flowers and a path to the back
my ideas are quite rough but do you guys have any opinions of what I could do with my barren garden?

I think it's an awesome idea to turn it into a garden where you and maybe your family could have a rest or make some picnic. I would advise you to cover all the surface with the ground and lawn and make some flower beds and to build a patio and make a gravel alley. When my husband was making a garden in front of our house we decided that we needed a garden tractor which helped us to do a lot of work. We found a great site https://www.growgardener.com with all the necessary thing for garden and bought there a tractor which still is very helpful and useful. You can also find on that site some nice ideas to improve your garden or build something there.

Do I need to reinforce these before adding a pull up bar? How much weight can they have pulling downward? Is the weight capacity different than something being onto? I was thinking of running a 2x6 across two of these, so that I can bolt a pullup bar into it. I don't know much about wood weight distribution, but in my head that is using the strength of two rafters instead of just one. Also I am not a huge fatty, I weigh about 190.

It turned 90 degrees because 4chan (and many other websites) strips the EXIF data from pictures when they are uploaded. The photo's orientation status is normally stored in the EXIF.

I posted this in the qtddtot but no responses more than a week later so here goes.
I just bought a house in florida and got the inspection report and it was mostly good. The inspector told me to invest in good house paint, something like a $200+ sherman williams breathable exterior paint or something. Said I'd need about 4 cans to do the whole 2700ish sqft house. Is this good advice or will i end up buying snakeoil? He seemed quite knowledgeable and helpful during the inspection but 1k to paint the house myself better get me god's gift to humanity quality paint. Looking around through google has a lot of conflicting info about whether or not to get breathable paint. Right now i think the house is covered in 14 yearold stucco.
Also what do about alluminum roofs? Roof needs replacing in about 5 years or sooner depending on hurricanes. They seem worth the investment and we specifically bought a house outside an hoa so we dont have to ask permission to exist for everything.
Theres also some occasional gaps in the laminated wood floorboards that i plan on touching up with clear caulk or epoxy maybe until its time to tear it all up and i get to put ceramic tile down throughout most of the house.

Well, it was a Toyota and I'm still driving it 10 years later so it was a good buy.

Nah, they don't. I was a mechanic. Miltary stuff is super specific and oddly out of date. Everything is chosen for durability and reliability. So, military vehicals are missing a lot of the things that are present on modern vehicles. Like emission control systems or even fucking mufflers. Or they are present but are super fucking old school. ABS was only added to some vehicles starting in the 90s and they are not anything like modern ones.

Same with their electronics, computers and radios. SINCGARS radios (first deployed in 1990 and still in use) used basically nothing that is considered current in the civilian world while having a bunch of stuff civvies have no use for; like frequency hopping and replaceable encryption keys. Up until about 10 years ago they were still using GPS receivers first deployed in the 1980s. Their FBCB2 system uses computer internals that were out of date 10 years ago. So, when you apply for jobs you will find you have some pretty huge holes in your experience and no one will want you or you will start at the bottom anyway.

So, be a cook or an armorer or work in S-4 or something. Medics get good training but they are combat roles. Anything combat arms is only good if you want to be a cop and cops can be pieces of shit. Be a firefighter instead. No one is ever unhappy to see you and you get bought a lot more beers. Heavy equipment operator is the only thing that is fairly easy to get as a military job that I can think of as truly useful when you get out but that is a pretty shit job in the long run. Right up there with truck driver.

You are 100% right about the filter thing.
A guy I know owns a black car service with a fleet of E-Class Mercedes. He hired a couple of minimum wage fucksticks to maintain his fleet.

As it turns out one by one his cars started suffering oil starvation. It took him a while to find out the "tech" was using an oil suction pump to lift oil out of the dipstick and never bothered to actually drain the pan or change filters because that would have required removing the undertray, therefore too much work.

These same people work at oil change places.
They are lazy.
Sometimes they won't even bother to replace the copper washers on the drain plug or even take out the old O ring for the filter, which causes the filter to not seal properly.

It is terrible get the green one with gas don’t use that Shitty flux core it doesn’t even output dc like it’s supposed to it’s AC THERES NO PROPER RECTIFICATION
Buy the big green one and rent a gas bottle from your local weld supply shop don’t buy the bottle it’s a scam
You can weld the piss out of anything with 220v going into the green ones they are excellent welders
BUT depending on what you are trying to do you may just wanna bite the bullet and get the AHP tig machine if you’re gonna do small stuff, and just do the big stuff with stick. Stick is smarter sometimes anyways, you can weld through rust safely with the correct rods
Bottom line the one you posted is cheap and somewhat dangerous, and will not work worth a damn without a lot of headache, but there are other options around for not much more money that will last you way longer and allow you to actually weld

Aluminum "welding" rods do not know how effective they are at the moment. Previously, they could be used very often, but in 2020 they are rarely used for welding. In general, at the moment, I can say so, there are a lot of welding machines in 2020 and some underestimate them, which makes it difficult for themselves to work. I am currently using the 2020 welding machine and it still helps me a lot. And I found out about this device from reviews on one site. I can throw you a website containing these reviews of the 2020 welding machine and its effectiveness. I was genuinely surprised when I bought it.

Cleaning household items is very important for a modern person: you will not only be able to maintain the aesthetic appearance of your home, but also prevent various infectious and allergenic diseases.

you'd need a massive upfront cost to automate even half of this with assembly lines and control arms. doing this on a small scale would make ROI unattractive for a home gamer, would probably be more feasible to do the same system but with 3D printing (machines like the CR-30 have belt platforms now)

I think it's a great business idea, guys, but I haven't really seen that concept here in New York. Although the city is huge. Try to find sponsors, I'm sure that the companies associated with the details will surely hear you. I am engaged in the repair of parts and often see that in my city you can not buy the parts I need without wasting time and without hassle. There is no point in contacting physical stores, as this will be a huge waste of time. I usually turn to online services that are available in many cities. The demand for this is huge as there are a lot of people among me who also apply for spare parts. Recently I took wholesale on https://www.automationstop.com/ and I liked the fast delivery and also the fact that I spent a minimum of time on communication and so on.

Kind of in the same boat as you. God I wish I could find something that pays better but it's not like I can get paid to go to college unless I'm gay/a tranny/female/illegal immigrant, so I'd have to work on the jobsite for another 4-6 years (depending on if I wanted to get a grad degree or not) while going to school.

You should never try to build something by yourself if you don't have the right knowledge and experience in this domain. Ten years ago I was building my house. I always wanted to save some money. When my builders said that they need a scaffold tower, I said that I can do it by myself. I built it with my friend and it was very fragile. One of my workers felt down and I felt very bad. After that, I hired a professional scaffold tower. This is like a lesson of life. Never try to do something if you don't know how to do it, and never try to save money on people's lives.

It's not about what you think. Language and spelling change whether you want them to or not. If you think otherwise, or if you think you can influence it, you are an idiot. And honestly, the "thinking" that you've done so far has been basically impotent, so why even continue?

In order to create a fantastic atmosphere in your room, you first need to think about sound insulation. Extraneous sounds always interfere with rest after a hard day's work and the noise of neighbors distracts and interferes with concentration. The door to the room should be as tight as possible so that no sound can pass through. When I had to soundproof my room, I turned to https://silenthomehub.com/ for help, as this is the best service in the field. I managed to create a great room in which there are no extraneous sounds and nothing distracts me from work. I am very pleased with this result and when renovating my own apartment, I plan to do the same.

I'm trying to teach myself Japanese, however looking at the hirigana and katakana alphabets are a little daunting. So I was wondering if it was possible to learn them separate, or if I had to learn them both together. Also, any general tips for keeping a new language notebook and learning it in general.

You can learn Hiragana and Katakana separate, but they're basically the same alphabet with different symbols for the same sounds. Katakana's just for loan words. Learn Hiragana first, and you'll find that lots of Katakana are similar to Hiragana. Hiragana is the more important alphabet to learn first.
Fun tip: Search "Genki japanese book" and there's a 2-part series with a textbook and workbook, it's pretty much the go-to for basic nipspeak.

If it gives you any faith, I was able to learn hiragana and katakana quite quickly and found it easy. Start with a little at a time, use flashcards, and expose yourself to their real-world use (which I'm assuming you will encounter for the same reasons you want to learn them).

Kanji is tougher, I've only picked up a few and haven't bothered to learn in a dedicated matter. But kana are easy. You can do it.

>> No.1196810


Sorry, I don't buy it. Maybe if there were some intrinsic connection between the shapes and sounds that made mnemonics really easy to form, but otherwise that sounds like bullshit.


I've never used Memrise so I can't comment on it beyond that it sounds like a pre-built flash card system. I will say though that anyone trying to learn Japanese who isn't even willing to put forth the effort to self-study the kana has 0% chance of advancing into anything resembling a grasp of the language.

Pre-builts are nice as a stepping stone into real learning.

So, I was trying to learn a new Asian language, and decided to give Japanese language a try. Very soon I realized that Japanese is extremely complicated and will require me to invest a great amount of time.
The first thing I did was try out Duolingo, it is one of the most versatile app for learning any foreign language, but it still needs a lot of time. So, installing Duolingo wasn't enough, I needed some one to help me with my college assignments as well. Thankfully, I found https://eduhelphub.com/ tutoring service. They made my studies so much easier, giving me time to spend more time on learning my new favorite language.

so, for the last few months ive been looking into finding a solution for a problem ive had for a while, I am a very hot sleeper, I fucking heat up the bed and toss and turn and its very uncomfortabl

so, I went looking online for solutions, and I came up with a "mattress" cooling solution, and a weird fan system, the bed cooling solution actually cools water (to a very "meh" capacity, it makes it technically "not warm" but not very cool unless you put some heavy insulation on it), and the fan thingy claims to cool you down, but it seems that all it does in that aspect is just be a regular fan under the blanket

so I got to wondering, what the hell, why dont I just get an air conditioner instead of the fucking fan thingy and provide active cooling

but then this brought on more questions:

How do I direct the AC air at my bed

why not then just make a small portion of my apt. cooler so I can keep the water cooling system cold aswell so it can cool the bed better (it can cool the water lower than room temperature, but not to an objective degree, it depends on the ambient temperature)

so I got into searching how could I keep a portion of my room enclosed, and I came up with either one of those weird-ass bed covers, or with a small insulated tent to put the bed in

but at that point, now I am:

Running a full blown AC
Insulating part of the room I am in
running the bed cooling system

and at taht point it feels like I am jsut making a room in the house so I can sleep, is it even economical at this point?will it even work? if the main point was to keep the bed cool, would keeping all the air around the bed cool also work?

so I do have a few questions or requests for suggestions if y'all ahve any

if I set a portable ac in an enclosed environemnt (that would be within another enclosed environment, the apt) will it cool the area its inside relatively to the temperature outside, or would it be futile and not go lower than say 68? can I "funnel" the ac air to the bed?

Your issue is that the heat from your body is just absorbed by the mattress. Get an army cot so the heat of your body is just dissipated to the air beneath the cot and out into the room. Army cots are the comfiest of hot weather sleeping.

Usually, I get insomnia when it is summer. I hate that period because I am not feeling very good and also I am allergic to a lot of flowers. I have several solutions for how to fall asleep. Firstly I try to go for a ten-minute walk, luckily I live near a park. If it doesn't' work I try to drink something alcoholic, sometimes it is helping me. If all the methods don't work I have some pills that help with insomnia, it is also important to have a good and comfortable weighted blanket. The most important is the matres and the pillow, you just need to find the combination that is comfortable for you.

I live in an rv and I love playing my records but I've got the problem of when I'm moving around occasionally it will skip due to the house moving any ideals on a remedy for this

Put it in park

>> No.1737874

I mean that frees up all the rotation axis and all, but that's not really the problem. The angular velocity and acceleration of an RV shouldn't be a problem. The main problems is translational acceleration in the vertical direction which will cause a skip that resumes as if it kept playing normally, and acceleration perpendicular to the tracking arm which will cause it to skip grooves. For the perpendicular one to occur it needs to be a combination of both to get out of the groove.

Beyond suspending and dampening the entire player or spring loading your arm and destroying your records, getting a linear tracking player like >>1730950 mentioned is your best bet. It entirely solves the issue of acceleration perpendicular to the grooves, and I feel like since you don't have a large cantilevered arm, you can get away with normal tracking force.

In fact the more I think about it, increasing the tracking weight by means of a cantilevered beam with a counterweight (which is probably what your player has), would actually increase skipping since it's moving the CG further away from the pivot point, increasing the moment about the CG created by the pivot point.

Don't listen for heaters, they just envy you. Indeed, possibly you have an old record player and you just have to change the turntable to play. I had the same problem with my previous model. We took the record player in the camping and while we were moving around occasionally it skipped due to the house moving. I thought that we broke it, but when we stopped it worked again without any problems. My friend advised me to order a new one and I found some interesting models on https://www.scatrecords.com/best-turntables-under-500/ . So, I selected a cool model under the 500$.
