2023.05.31 18:21 Abeseven My elderly dog (14) just growled at her food for about a minute before eating?
| || |
She wasn’t growing at me as I was nowhere near (plus she never growls!) and there’s no one else here. I thought maybe there was a big spider or something near her bowl. But there was nothing there, she ate her food happily once she stopped growling. submitted by Abeseven to DogAdvice [link] [comments]
Does anyone have any idea why she did that? I know dogs growl to warn and protect their food but there was literally nothing around. Do you think it’s her elderly mind getting confused?
2023.05.31 18:21 See_The_Thing_Is My review of Chain of Command rules by Too Fat Lardies.
So I played about 6-8 games of the ww2 skirmish "platoon+support" rule set from Too Fat Lardies.
I think the greatest aspect of this game is what happens outside the battle. Namely the patrol phase that does away with "my army is 12 inches from my table edge, now lets move untill we are within shooting range". That and the pre-selected national lists with random support options that does away with points for building armies.
The command dice mechanic is also great. It makes for random activations which is very nice. Force morale means the game ends organically before one side is completely wiped out without making a hard cap on turn limit. This means no one knows when the game might end, but my games usually lasted about 3 hours which is good. Finally, the scale is real which means no artificial maximum ranges for rifles and such.
Charts. There are loads and loads of charts of convoluted rules for every little thing and it doesn't really add much to the game. Things could have easily been streamlined without reducing the level of simulation. Usually when I play a game after 3 games I rarely have to flip the rulebook to see how things are done. With Chain of Command there wasn't even one game where we didn't have to consult the rules multiple times per game phase. This slows down the game and makes things really clanky. Even the player who introduced me to the rules was constantly getting things wrong and having to consult the rules.
Bad balance. Now I get that war is not balanced. But this is a game, I am not going to spend 3-4 hours playing a reenaction with toy soldier where I'm supposed to lose or win. I want a fair competition. Playing a game where one force has better quality troops, especially elites, makes the game ridiculesly hard for one side. For example, elites are only hit on a score of 5-6 when at close range. But most of the time you shoot beyond close range which means they are only hit on a 6 by nearly all weapons(!) and if they are in cover you have to roll 5-6 again to kill a model. The chances of doing that statistically is dismal which leads to either one side steamrolling the other or, if both are elites, a game where nearly no one dies.
Anyway I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this. What do you think? know any other good skirmish ww2 rules? my ww2 experience thus far has only been chain of command and bolt action.

2023.05.31 18:20 420wasabisnappin So many dog foods are grain free and I am beyond frustrated.
For the second time in a row I have bought a grain-free food without knowing it was grain-free. There are so many options of dog food I get completely overwhelmed and I cannot afford to buy a THIRD bag of food in the span of a month at the moment.
I bought my dog a grain-free food by accident after her food (Purina Beyond) was discontinued and Chewy sent me my cats food instead of any kind of notification that they were out.
And my dog was also out of food.
So, I bought True Acres Chicken & Veg in a bit of a panic because it was a big bag for not too much money. "Grain-free" is written almost all over it but I didn't catch on until we were nearly done with bag #1.
My dog has since developed a rash on her belly that she scratches at a ton.
So I found Purina Pro Plan Adult Sensitive Skin & Stomach. The picture had nothing with grain-free listed, but I didn't scroll through all 8 photos listed, I just bought it. I had been working through the pages on Chewy for about an hour trying to find something that seemed within my budget for the price and weight and that was what I kept landing on.
Today I looked at the bag and right on the front it says "no corn, wheat or soy." I cannot explain how much I want to absolutely lose it right now. I had transitioned her and was feeling good, but since the rash persisted, I had made a vet appointment for fear that it was the mower chemicals and cut grass inflaming her belly.
I'm so upset. I have like two bags of very full dog food, just paid rent and am trying to save for this vet appt. I do not have funds, or space, or spoons to get yet another bag of food and transition her AGAIN.
Why is grain-free food so readily available? It shouldn't be given to a dog unless expressly determined by a vet, yet it's everywhere!
And now I'm so exhausted from looking for food the first time, I don't want to look again. I already feel exhausted, overwhelmed and burnt out at the thought which in turn makes me feel like a terrible dog owner that I keep putting my baby through this.
Thanks for listening to me vent and if anyone has recommendations for a NOT grain-free dog food good for a 45lb Treeing Hound mix (budget of about $60/mo) I am so open to it.

2023.05.31 18:19 Bighairedaristocrat Transcoding seems to have stopped working (Large Libray with thousands of files)
So i'm a total Tdarr noob, but had figured out a way to get the first couple hundred files in my library transcoded from h.264 to h.265. It was running fine for a while. However, it kept giving me a message that it had reached the staged file limit (even though it was at 1,000). I posted about this and made some adjustments, but now, on every file, i'm getting a message simlar to whats in the log below. It will spend nearly half an hour on a 30-ish minute file, but end up not doing any transcoding. This seems to be a huge waste of time and resources - if its not going to transcode, whats it doing for half an hour? (Tdarr is running on a NUC in Windows 11 with an intel 1235u with 32 GB of RAM. The GPU is at 100% but the CPU is not used much).
I also have to keep expanding the staged file limite (its now at 2,000), even though, based on the options i selected, I dont think i should need to have it so large.
I would appreciate any tips/troubleshooting that anyone can provide.
The log is below, but her are the settings i'm using: Plugins
- Migz - Remove image formats from file
- Boosh - Transcode using QSV... (i only have QSV enabled, none of the other options)
- New File Size Check
Trascode - 2 CPU 6 GPU
Health Check - 2 CPU 6 GPU
"Allow GPU workers to do CPU tasks" and " Always move failed transcodes to Transcode Error tab" are both enabled.

2023.05.31 18:19 nikk0_b [WTS] Planet Eclipse Etha 1st gen - $200 obo (free shipping, paypal fees included)
| || |
Cleaning out my garage. I purchased this etha used around 2014. It never saw the field during my ownership. The only use it saw was in my backyard. It shot flawlessly when I used it. I do not remember how many paintballs I put through it because it's been in storage ever since 2015. It is in near mint condition. All accessories, spare parts, and tools, as well as the barrel, are not included because they didn't come with it when I purchased it. I put a battery in it, and it turns on. Unfortunately, I don't have air to dry fire/test it out. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will update the description if any questions are asked. I'm willing to adjust my price accordingly if it's too high. I've been holding on to my markers for too long. Unfortunately, i don't intend on getting back into the game. I'm ready to give my markers up for a steal. submitted by nikk0_b to PaintballBST [link] [comments]

2023.05.31 18:18 IntricateSunlight Does anyone know where to find cute footwear that are size 12 US women's?
Unfortunately I'm slightly over the size of what most shoe stores and manufacturers carry for women as most only go to 11. Though I can fit 11 its typically tight and I found 12 fits better for me. I dont need wide, I just have narrow long feet.
Anyone know a good shop for women's shoes for us tall girls?

2023.05.31 18:17 Individual-Bat232 I think I might've time travelled
Hi I've recently thought about timetravelled and then memory of mine came up to me. I was about 6 or 8, and I was in the Krynica Mountains in Poland. It was very snowy that day. I was pretty new to skiing, and from time to time I would fall down on the snow. One time when I was doing zigzag exercises with little flags (it looked like a flag with a pole on both sides), And then, as I recall, I went into this flag between the poles (I was alone; there were only strangers there; my family was on other ski slopes), and I fell on my face. When I turned around, everything looked the same. There was snow, trees, and even this flag thingy. And then I saw a cameraman with an old-school camera (a wooden camera for black and white photos). That's how it looked. I think he was making a movie. He was standing before me, but his back was to me. Then I saw who he was shooting. There was a woman with very white glamour skin and very velvety black hair (and with black uv glasses or something that looked similar); what was most eye-catching was that she was wearing luxurious fur and very old-style clothes. The cameraman also had very old clothes. She also was skiing with two ski poles in her hands. So after I saw them, I saw her sliding sideways in front of me, and the cameraman was shooting her. It lasted like 60 seconds, and she slid near me, and the cameraman went after her. They didn't notice me. After those holidays, I told my family, but they didn't believe me, and I've moved on. I'm not sure if I have time traveled or reality shifted. But something unusual happened that day. Tell me what you think about this. I'm not sure, but I think the footage from that cameraman might exist somewhere. Maybe they were photos or a movie; I'm not sure.
The footage might've looked like this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQQQxRacXBw

2023.05.31 18:17 nicrusso Outdoor Time (Safe/Unsafe)?
I’ve been seeing pictures here and there of people taking their gecko outside (in a backyard, or on a path near a forest, etc.) and I’m wondering if this is risky, or not so much. To me (I had a rat many years ago that I took out to my backyard once or twice when I was young and sort of careless) this seems unsafe - just for the fact that a hawk, or any large bird could swoop down super fast and (best case) knock the gecko to the floor, also for direct sunlight reasons. I’d love to bring mine out, but it seems scary. Just curious what the thoughts are on this. Of course I pretty much intend on keeping mine indoors, but again, curious.

2023.05.31 18:16 Tayraur Struggling with pneumonia once again and my friends, family, and coworkers continue to downplay the illness.
I have been dealing with pneumonia and was recovering from the illness and now is coming back again. I was sick for 2 months before I started getting better.
My two closest friends, mother, & grandmother, all pushed off my illness for the first month, telling me that it was bronchitis, I would be fine, people get sick all of the time and it’s normal. I was continually told that I was essentially overthinking and downplayed my symptoms.
At work, I have accommodated coworkers (because they refuse) to work on the front desk when they are feeling ill. During this entirety I was forced to work on the front desk still, regardless of me asking for a switch for a day because they didn’t want to. Excessive talking is very painful and the consistent coughing hurts as well.
When I got the diagnosis, it was, “Oh well, that sucks” and whenever I wanted to stay home to rest it was, “Sounds like you’re out of shape, a walk/just going shopping shouldn’t be hard for you,” and was left feeling guilty and bad about not feeling well. Was also told it’s because I’m not taking care of myself properly and if I was I wouldn’t have gotten sick to begin with.
My pneumonia is coming back again for round 2 about a month after I finished my last round of antibiotics and I’m back in the same boat. I feel hopeless and alone because nobody except for my partner seems genuinely concerned or cares that I am struggling with this. I was already downplayed saying that there’s no way it would be coming back and that it’s just a cold, when I know it is because of the pain that I’m in already.
I feel like I just want to give up and I don’t have anyone to confide in because I honestly feel like the majority of my friends & family couldn’t care any less unless I was on my death bed.

2023.05.31 18:16 starryvista Getting increasingly frustrated with ADHD360 and broadway pharmacy! Currently down £90!
I’m nearly 2 months into titration and every single part of the process for getting medication has been painful.
My first prescription took 10 days to get to me from my initial assessment. I paid and signed up immediately, prescription was written, but broadway pharmacy took that long to finally get something out to me.
Then ADHD360 emailed me to say I needed to buy more tablets (prior to review) so I did as instructed and paid. Only for my clinician to change my dosage and wrote me a new £110 prescription. So I paid for that.
My clinician wasn’t very helpful at all about the duplicate prescription (pretty sure given it’s a controlled drug they shouldn’t be doing that!)and I was told ‘to just ring up ADHD360’ if you have any issues.
So I ring ADHD360, who basically say it’s absolutely nothing to do with them and something I need to sort with broadway pharmacy. After several phone calls, I’m advised to refuse the ‘incorrect’ prescription parcel and they’ll refund me the £90.
Which I do, the parcel gets sent back to them. I then chase broadway pharmacy several times and each time they say haven’t got it.
They did. It was signed for by them the day after I sent it back. There’s proof of delivery! It’s now 2 weeks since it arrived and I still haven’t got a refund and being given the run around.
ADHD360 basically shrug their shoulders and say it’s nothing to do with them, which I think is pretty shoddy given the fact I’m paying £950 odd to be ‘under their care’
And to top it off, I’m £90 down on a prescription I had to refuse.

2023.05.31 18:16 MetricWeakness6 Strangest way I saw a tank crew die
| || | submitted by MetricWeakness6 to foxholegame [link] [comments]
Most strangest thing I saw in my time in Foxhole tbh (this was a while before 1.0 war I think?). So a quadiche or was it a Bardiche? was coming from the the SE of the road(Collies) and me and another guy (Warden) were SW where you see us but a bit further down. The Quad/bard was moving up to the middle of the intersection before one of the crew in it saw us and immediately jumped out even though we werent even near it (we had no AT on us) and tried to shoot us but somehow forgot about the MG pillbox on his right (the one you see there) and subsequently got gunned down by it.
Then the tank continued driving towards the NW side of the road and somehow entirely ignored the AT pillox you see on the left of the picture. The strangest thing was is that the tank died in 3-2 shots from the AT pillbox.
TLDr: one of the crew of an enemy tank saw us and got up to shoot us but forgot about the MG pillbox, enemy tank then got itself killed by 3-4 shots from the AT pillbox
It definitely wasnt moving in the direction of friendly territory and could have easily gone back the way it came to do so.

2023.05.31 18:14 rumpusrouser What do I do about a girl who always tells me my daughter is not playing nice?
I realize my title sounds like my daughter can do no evil but hear me out. My daughter (4) has just made friends with a girl (6). She lives across the street and they play almost every night. I always sit near and watch them, since my daughter is still so young I want to make sure she isn’t stealing toys/throwing fits/etc. The 6 year olds mom also sits outside and we chat. However, at least 3 or 4 times a night the 6 year old will come tell me my daughter is being mean. She will tell me “she’s not playing the game right” or “She won’t let me ride her scooter” or one time it was “she asked for candy even though I said it was mine.” To be clear if my daughter was honestly not playing nice I would be the first one to correct her, that’s why I’m outside in the first place. But like the 6 year old locked my daughter in a dog kennel last night, my daughter cried and she didn’t let her out until I said, “She is telling you she doesn’t like this, let her out.” (Her mom had stepped into the house at this point.) Last night another girl (5) was playing with them and even she went up to the 6 year old’s mom and said “6 year old isn’t being nice to 4 year old” But the mom didn’t really do anything. It’s not really an option for me to not let them play because they live so close. They are always outside and my 4 year old really wants to play with the 6 year old. The 6 year old is even the one who always asks my daughter to come play. I had a long talk with my 4 year old about how if someone is being mean to her she needs to come tell me and we will go do something else fun. I have thought about the next time the 6 year old tells me my daughter is being mean, telling her, “I’m sorry that’s happening, should me and 4 year old go inside and take our toys with us?” Because we are the ones with the scooters, chalk, and sandbox. But if she said “yes” that’s just punishing my 4 year old. How would you handle this situation? Am I overblowing it? I am just so tired of her being a jerk to my kid.

2023.05.31 18:14 Suitable-Ad8983 Gameplay connected to server?
Right now I live without wifi so my 15 gig allowable hotspot from my phone did the job downloading with the hotspot running out near the end switching to slow and spotty connection to finish download. After a bit of chugging, the game verified that it had in fact released and opened. I got to the main menu and found that my controller and mouse inputs did nothing to scroll or select.
I theorized that this was some EA online at all times BS so I disconnected my expired and very spotty hotspot and viola, the game runs seamlessly. This makes me think that the game runs through an online server and all button presses have to go through this server whether local or external even when you are in single player modes and menus.
Hopefully this doesn’t lead to any pointless performance issues for any of you but thought I’d point it out cause it was weird.

2023.05.31 18:14 TylPlas26 Do You Have Any More Black Soil?
This happened a few hours ago. No Karen’s or Kevin’s in this one. I knew something like this might happen eventually. I was always curious to see what would happen.
I work as a delivery driver for a building supply store. For my job, I have to wear hi-vis t-shirts. So I had that on, beige shorts, and a visor with my company name on it. Though unless you are standing a few meters away looking directly at the visor, you wouldn’t see the logo.
So today, I had to do a delivery to a near by town. And while there, I was told to go too one of the two supermarkets that are next door to one another to get hydration drinks and cold snack for the rest of my coworkers who work outside because of the heat wave we are experiencing.
I go to the one store, and they are sold out of everything we need. So I begin walking next door to the wall of marts. I have the list in my hand, walking in front of their soils and mulch. And just a head of me, there is a car pulling up, stopping a head of me. Since he was blocking my way, I walked behind a skid of product, and suddenly hear the drivers voice call out “Do you have any more black soil?”
I just replied “I don’t work here. I am a customer like you.” “Oh, you’re a customer?” “Yup.” I didn’t stop walking, and never saw the customers face.
A few minutes later, I’m walking out of the store with a cart full of what I need, and the customer is still there loading his vehicle up.
For fun, I walk by his vehicle, where he saw me pushing the cart.
Something simple and entertaining for everyone.

2023.05.31 18:14 halfkeck Just another day, another repair
Friday we got a truck towed in. I get some keys dropped on my desk with no other information. Great. In this business you learn keep track of keys. There is nothing more fun than spending an hour on a all hands on deck search for missing keys. So I stashed the keys where I could see them and waited to see if any more information turned up. Usually someone calls or someone remembers whose vehicle it is. I've had those moments before, "Oh, bleep, that's the Smiths car and we need to put brakes on it pronto, they will be here in an hour" But not this time. Wasn't me anyway.
I quiz my co-workers, no one admits to having a clue. Well they did have certain opinions it being a Friday before a holiday weekend and all, but no one was claiming a Ram truck or any knowledge of such.
Being as it is a Friday and we are trying to put everything out on the street before we leave for the long weekend, I kind of push off the keys and the mystery of the Ram truck. I figure sooner or later they will call right? Nope. We hustle through a busy day and leave the keys on my desk and truck untouched when we turn out the lights to leave that night.
Tuesday we are back in. First thing after I tend to the early birds at the shop and get everything written up is to get somewhere on this truck. We already have the owners info from grabbling the registration out of the glove box, I was hoping to find an existing customer but no luck.
I again ask everyone working about this truck. No one knows any names, one did take a call about something getting towed but had zero information on what was wrong or whose vehicle it was. We have had lots of similar instances over the years but usually either we sleuth out whose vehicle it is or they call to check the status of the repair. Since we are now on day 5 of the truck being here, I think we need to take action before someone calls and gives me an earful over why their truck has not even been started. Other times we have seen things get towed in, only to find it was an error on the part of the towing company and once we contact the customer it gets towed to the shop it was originally supposed to go to. Or in a few cases we have had things get dropped where the customer had no intention of ever fixing the car, it was just the only thing they could think of when they needed it towed off.
But this many days later with no contact it is time to elevate things. Hmm, no record of the customers name in my database. Well then, there is more than one way to get there. I log into FB. I type in the name off the registration. I find a match! Right name, right hometown. Okay we have one friend in common. It's my salt supplier for the winter snow and ice season. I text him if he knows this Mr X. He texts back he does. I explain I have a vehicle towed in and am trying to get in touch with the owner. He shoots me over Mr X's number. Awesome, that went well. Now lets just call a random guy and ask if he's missing a Ram four wheel drive pick up, since I seem to have one.
"Hello, this is HK. I'm calling from AutoRepairShop in othertown. I have a Ram truck that was towed in and was wondering if it was yours?"
Mr X "Oh, yeah, that's my son all right. He had it towed in and said he was going to call and give you his number Friday. My name is on the registration. I'm guessing he did not call like he said he was going too."
HK: "Haha, nope. But lets get a ticket started so we can get to work."
I get his contact info and start a ticket. Soon enough we have a diagnosis. His no start condition is due to a fuel pump. I call and sell the job.
You'd think it ends there. But as the late great Billy Mayes always said, "But wait there's more!"
The tech brings me up a list of things he's noticed while doing the fuel pump. He didn't even dig too deep, just saw a few drips and went from there. This truck not only needs a fuel pump, it also apparently needs:
Fan, thermo clutch is bad
Water pump bearing loose
Ujoints on front axle loose, he heard them when moving truck
front wheel bearing loose
drag link on front suspension
engine oil pan leaking and missing bolts
transmission pan leaking
and both front and rear drive shafts need all universal joints replaced.
I call the customer and without going into detail ask if he wants us to check over the truck as we have seen a few drips here and there. He said they just had a lot of work done somewhere else and if there were issues they would take it back. I told them they better get it back there as it needed a lot of work. I think they had a used engine installed. Lots of work that could be related and lots that was not related. Maybe we will get some of it after it all shakes out. But there is always plenty of work to do this time of year. On to the next one, Detective HK is on the job.

Hi! I am a 22M from Barcelona (Spain). I am gonna be on vacation in Zagreb (Croatia) between May 29th and June 15th, also on Ljubljana (Slovenia) between June 15th and June 17th. So I am looking to meet cool people to explore both cities :)
A bit about me:

• Brown eyes.
• I like to be in shape so I do some workout.
As for my interests;
• I love films (my favorite directors are Krzysztof Kieślowski and Éric Rohmer).
• I like listening to music (mainly rock and pop, one of my favorite groups is Oasis, but I also enjoy other types of music).
• I like analog photography.
• I love to travel. I've traveled to: 🇬🇧🇧🇪🇪🇸🇩🇪🇨🇵🇮🇹🇻🇦🇵🇹🇳🇱🇸🇮🇭🇷 and I've lived in: 🇧🇪🇪🇸 I would like to buy a camper in the future to travel around Europe during the summer.
• I like going to museums, going thrift shopping... or any other activity both outdoors and indoors.
• I like deep conversations, talking about any interesting topic (history, politics, philosophy...)
Let’s talk and see if we vibe :)

2023.05.31 18:13 SVNakedMermaid How to deal with the anxiety
I found myself a unicorn. I wasn’t even looking for an AP, but this person just fell out of the sky and into my heart. They’re perfect for me in every way. We connect on such a deep level that I swear it’s like we were a couple in a previous life. We have amazing conversations, amazing chemistry, everything. I can’t get enough, but there’s a distance issue so our ability to meet in person is difficult.
We recently had an overnight that made us both realize how extraordinary our relationship is and how much we truly love and appreciate each other. I know if our life circumstances were different, we would have made a fantastic couple. I’m not saying that’s not within the realm of possibility, but it’s not possible in the near future.
But there is a problem—my anxiety. I’m terrified of getting caught by SO, and it’s a completely irrational fear. My OPSEC is good, but there’s still the what-if’s messing with my head.
What do you do to deal with irrational fears? I don’t want this to end, but I don’t want to panic about getting caught when we actually have the opportunity to be together either. I want to be able to relax and enjoy my time with him.
