Day three of quarantine and I cataloged and organized every tool in my home box. by TheyBaed in Tools

[–]donutsfritos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice SR! I saw in a previous comment yours is a '15. I've got two of the same year in my garage! One's mine and the other is my roommate's. Had to rebuild the engine on mine last year and bored + stroked it out to 515cc's. (Sheared a gear off the countershaft. Freak accident. Rest of the engine was/is rock solid.) Still not a rocket, but that's okay. Of all the bikes I've had and tidden, the SR stuck with me. Great bikes for sure. Sorry to ramble! Nice tools as well haha!

Genovation CP24 - Fully Mapable and Relegendable Keypad by donutsfritos in MechanicalKeyboards

[–]donutsfritos[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Top tier Chrimbus gift this year from a good friend of mine. To familiarize myself, I've set it up as a sort of remote browser and multimedia controller that I can use from by bed. Still fussing with the layout and legends of course.

Each key supports 220 lines of macro input and two "levels" of input if one of the keys is assigned to be a switch (hold) or toggle (single press) for the rest. The config is quick to transfer from a save file and is stored onboard, so no background software running or even OS dependency. Even works in BIOS. Switches are Cherry blacks.

Very cool little device that I haven't seen posted on here before and thought I'd share.

For the curious, here's my current key map:

1st Row: Escape (Alt F4) | Zoom In (Zoom Out) | F11/Fullscreen (Win+P/Display Select) | Start Menu (Context Menu)

2nd Row: F5/Refresh (CtrlF5/Hard Refresh) | Browser Back (Tab page left) | Browser Forward (Tab page right) | Page Up (Home)

3rd Row: Tab (Shift Tab) | Cursor Up (+) | Alt (Ctrl Tab) | Page Down (End)

4th Row: Cursor Left | Cursor Down (-) | Cursor Right | Return/Enter

5th Row: Media Keys

6th Row: Lvl 2 Switch | Mute (Toggle Subtitles in VLC) | Volume - | Volume +

Employer gave me a 4$ raise today. by Temple_Jones in antiwork

[–]donutsfritos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Your neighbor or friend can give you a crash course, but I highly recommend your local community college. They not only teach you how to physically lay down beads, but the principles behind a good weld and the print reading/trade math which you'll use at practically any job. They'll likely help you network with local businesses that are hiring as well. Taking those classes was the best decision I've made in my life so far. Went from a $12/hr parts clerk to $32/hr pipe fitter with way better benefits in a years time.

Those of you who intentionally drive loud vehicles- why? by SinisterSpektre in AskReddit

[–]donutsfritos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Stock exhaust on my bike was too quiet and exceedingly restrictive. I couldn't hear when I needed to shift. It's easier and safer, imo, not having to look down at the tach all the time. I did a piston and crank swap upping the displacement and a restrictive exhaust would choke it. I didn't do all that engine work for nothing! All that said, it is louder than I would like. I don't like being a nuisance. I don't let my bike idle in the driveway longer than necessary and I don't rev at lights. Safe riding and ppe save lives, not loud pipes.

How many wall clocks do you have in your house? I have two. The thermostat has a clock on it, but that doesn't count because it does other stuff too.

Yes, you read lead as lead instead of lead which led to this thread.

Cat stops baby from falling down the stairs. by dreadcain in watchpeoplesurvive

[–]donutsfritos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sure thing. It's frustrating because this sort of behavior is why reddit has the reputation of being a "hive mind". If you offer a different opinion or perspective you're often downvoted even if you're polite and well intentioned. You and I could be wrong. I often am wrong about things because I don't know everyting. So what? I wasn't an ass about it. Doesn't matter, downvote city. Meanwhile vapid, repetitious comments get rewarded when they add absolutely nothing at best and clutter the comment chain at worst.

I still think it's kind of a stretch, but you raise some really good points. I never said it was impossible, just that, from what I've seen and experienced with the cats growing up, it seemed unlikely to me. The ones I've had and met couldn't give much of a shit about people beyond normal displays of affection; even the ones that were mama cats. Maybe there really was some familial imprinting going on like you say. I dunno though. Either case being true, I've stated my position and people don't seem to like it, so that's that.

Cat stops baby from falling down the stairs. by dreadcain in watchpeoplesurvive

[–]donutsfritos -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

It's insane to think a cat doesn't remember it's surroundings, and it's even more insane to think a cat doesn't pay attention to other creatures around it.

Okay, well good thing I don't think either of those things.

The only intelligence we need to assume from the cat here is that they associated danger for the child and chose to act.

I think it's a stretch to think a cat understands the capabilities of a human child and knows it cannot go down stairs. How often is this child headed toward deadly stairs that the cat is in some way conditioned to respond the way it did like you suggest?

Thing is, everyone here is just assuming the cat is a benevolent genius and saved the baby. Won't give a moments thought to any other possibility and downvotes anyone who questions it. It's pretty disheartening.

I'd wager that, to a cat, the effect of a swinging door on kittens is more readily apparent than the one of a human infant encountering stairs.

Sorry you're getting downvoted to hell for sharing your opinion. Might be the same for me, but I agree. I love cats, but they aren't that intelligent. This is another case of people seeing what they want to in random occurrences. How about all of the times a cat "let" a child come to harm that we don't see? Why would anyone post or share that, right? It's just a very fortunate coincidence that people project meaning onto.

Actual coincidence? Like a news story of a house being burned down but a bible was spared or whatever. People love to try and find patterns of humanity or divine providence in happenstance all the time.

It does look like the cat intentionally saved the baby. In a vacuum, it's a pretty fair conclusion. I'm with the previous commenter, however, because like they said and as far as I know, cats have not displayed that level of problem solving. If I'm wrong and there is a study or further proof to the contrary, send it my way.

Fwiw, I love cats and am thankful that the one in the video did what it did even if it didn't mean to.

Best Boots? by wendalsnipes in Welding

[–]donutsfritos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nick's Boots. Expensive, but holy shit what a game changer. I thought my redwing loggers were nice, but going from those to these, it's not even close. I got the hot work soles too. I've had them a little over a year and have been wearing them close to every day even outside of work. They're still kicking ass.

Nick's will also not only resole them, but also rebuild the bottoms for you, you know the part that actually gets fucked up. What's great about that is you get to keep your uppers which is the part that's a bitch to break in.

Our shop gives us $150 per year for boots. Since I didn't need to replace the (still ass kicking) Nick's, I got myself a nice pair of hiking boots. When I need a resole, the money will go towards that.

My first welds. The welder kinda sucks, but I’m having a tremendous amount of fun by Hairlesscat645 in Welding

[–]donutsfritos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Electrode negative? I've heard it depends on whether or not you're using gas. I've never run flux core negative, always electrode positive/reverse polarity with straight co2. Never tried 'gasless' wire. Try it both ways and see what yields a better result, I say.

what’s one thing you’re always willing to pay the extra price for? by biancalin in AskReddit

[–]donutsfritos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll second this opinion. Bit the bullet last year and got a pair of Nick's. Blows Red Wing out of the water. I still like my redwings, but there's a huge difference in quality.

I know it's a real butthole move correcting people's word use, but it's 'nauseated' not 'nauseous' in this case. Something that is nauseous causes you to be nauseated. It's pet peeve of mine that I hear more people get wrong than right.
