    [–] My neighborhood is becoming unsafe kivalo 5 points ago in homedefense

    Contact your sales rep at the alarm company. A normal intrusion alarm, the policy is to call the house first. If there's no answer, or if you answer but don't give the correct "code", or give a panic code, then they call police.

    I'm not sure what the policy is if you hit a panic alarm, but they'll usually dispatch pd first, then either contact a keyholder right away or wait a set amount of time before contacting a keyholder. That's what you need to find out. Police aren't too fond of responding to repeated false alarms.

    [–] My Gemini Computerized Security System beeps everytime a door/window opens kivalo 5 points ago in homedefense

    I can almost guarantee that if you can silence it, it would show you how in the user manual.

    [–] I finally made it to Dunkin’ Donuts Park. We’re blowing it tonight, but it’s a great venue and a better night. kivalo 24 points ago in Connecticut

    That doesn’t make any sense. The whole point of tourism is to get people from out of the area to come in and spend money while at the same time hiring locals.

    [–] Actual 911 call of home invasion shows why everyone must be prepared to defend themselves. [Warning: Graphic Audio] kivalo 14 points ago in homedefense

    Don't give people bad information. Don't hang up on 911. Only disconnect after you and the 911 operator agree. Answer the questions as best as you can.

    [–] What we do with aliens isn't any of my business. kivalo -2 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    The issues are the inhumane living conditions, lack of medical treatment, lack of any basic decency, and lack of due process. If I did 1/10 to my own children what they're doing to these people, I'd be in prison.

    [–] I was stunned when I first read this. Posted from a diabetic page I follow kivalo 2 points ago in diabetes

    Unless you’re going through a metal detector, they’re not looking for guns, they’re looking for candy and snacks.

    What dumbass accepts the responsibility of being a manager at minimum wage?

    [–] “From the mean streets of Greenwich, Connecticut” kivalo 3 points ago in Connecticut

    Also 911 dispatcher. I agree with most of this, but we have enough of a range of city and farmland that it could certainly be gunshots. 99% of the time it's fireworks, but it's that 1% that will get you on the stand in court if you don't take it at face value.

    [–] Jurassic World The Ride is OPENED POV kivalo 15 points ago in JurassicPark

    So just to be clear.. this is the same ride as before, just with new decorations, right?

    [–] [No Spoilers] Emilia's dragon tattoo!! kivalo 10 points ago in gameofthrones

    I'm not sure I get a vote, but aye.

    [–] Is no A/C the norm for properties? kivalo 2 points ago in Connecticut

    There are car taxes you have to still pay if you're renting and register the car in CT.

    [–] transition to tslim kivalo 1 points ago in diabetes

    I charge once every 2-4 days. Plug it in while taking a shower. I also hate the case/clip.... but mostly because it's not flat on the edge opposite where the tubing comes out, so when priming the tubing I can't stand it up without leaning it against a few things.

    [–] The pyramid of greatness kivalo 11 points ago in arduino

    It's also incredibly frustrating and discouraging for a newbie to let the magic smoke out of a $22 Uno.

    [–] From all of us photographers to all of you who believe you are. kivalo 4 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Pretty much the same. A normal camera like on a phone can't capture it properly, the same way it wouldn't be able to capture the stars if you took a picture of the night sky.

    [–] From all of us photographers to all of you who believe you are. kivalo 145 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    I was on a tour group in Iceland with a bus full of people wholly unprepared for photographing the northern lights. Not only were they using their cell phones to try to capture it, their flashes kept going off. At the time I had a Canon G12, which for being a point and shoot, had tons of features. set it on the tripod, and every time I went for a long exposure someone's flash would go off. Here's a long exposure with a car driving through

    [–] Father's Day Mega-Thread kivalo 6 points ago in Parenting

    I'm working 16 hours on fathers day, will be sleeping the other 8 or so hours, and won't be seeing my kids.

    [–] Am I getting ripped off? Contractor says I should upgrade 60 amp to 200 amp for $10k. Home is only 1100 square feet. kivalo 25 points ago in HomeImprovement

    From my understanding, the 60 amp panel means old wiring that could be a fire hazard. Not knob and tube old, but lacking grounds, or corroding insulation.
