    [–] Just got myself a new MBP 2018 for my birthday. What are the first things i shoukd setup on it? moonweasel 2 points ago in mac

    Can you ELI5 why homebrew is better than just installing from dmgs? Someone linked the site on another comment but as someone with minimal command line experience, it doesn’t really explain the benefits/advantages.

    [–] Anybody have an EdgeRouter ER-X successfully running on their gig fiber? I have questions... moonweasel 1 points ago in centurylink

    Also just to save the $10/mo you are paying to rent CTL’s router — if, as in my case, you already have a decent wireless router of your own kicking around, you can add the ER-X (or something similar that handles PPPOE well) for around $55 and then you are saving money after six months.

    [–] Getting ER-X to work on CTL 1gig fiber (PPPE + VLAN) moonweasel 2 points ago in Ubiquiti

    I think a DHCP server is created by the setup wizard – certainly there is nothing in the documentation or any of the forum threads I’ve read about having to set one up manually. The switch0 interface shows an IP range of, which seems to indicate that one is set up?

    Laptop still had the manually assigned IP the first time, but I did also try switching it to be assigned one via DHCP. In both case the IP was in the same subnet as the range shown on the switch0 interface (192.168.1.xx), but neither allowed me to connect.

    [–] How to use wireless router as access point for wired-only router moonweasel 0 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in HomeNetworking

    Is there a way to have the Nighthawk connect through the ER-X but still assign IP addresses to devices that connect wirelessly? I only ask because I already set up address reservations for all our devices when still using it as the only router (for access control and bandwidth/QoS purposes) and I’m wondering if there is a way to avoid having to set that all up from scratch on the ER-X.

    [–] If a scene in movie or tv-show invloves a character taking drugs, what is actually being used as the drugs? moonweasel 5 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Usually corn starch with some baby powder. Sometimes powdered lactose. They are basically inert and don’t really have much in the way of negative effects.

    [–] Trying to lose dad weight... moonweasel 2 points ago in WeightLossAdvice

    ITT: keto, intermittent fasting, calorie counting

    EDIT: for real tho: not sure how this sub feels about it, but I usually lose 10–15lbs every time I do a Whole30 (granted I’m sure a good chunk of that is water weight). Might be difficult with kids around though...

    [–] Guitar Pedals moonweasel 2 points ago in guitars

    Billy Corgan usually uses the Electro Harmonix V4 Op-Amp Big Muff Pi.

    [–] Guitar Pedals moonweasel 2 points ago in guitars

    What kind of music you trying to play? What kind of amp do you play through? What’s your budget for a pedal? “Distortion” can mean a lot of things, and there are a lot of factors that can play into what might be the “best” pedal for you.

    [–] Unpopular opinion: Other than PigPen Phil was the most important vocalist. moonweasel 1 points ago in gratefuldead

    I’m pretty sure he was the one who didn’t want to sing anymore, not the rest of the band not wanting him to. They picked Brent (and later Vince) largely based on his ability to sing those high parts, after losing both Phil and Donna on them.

    [–] Free Reddit colorisation request attempt before and after. Took about 10 hours but wanted to share some love moonweasel 1 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    Unless there are eyewitness recollections, or contemporaneous color photos of the same clothes, or say, historical records of some kind, you just guess/decide.

    [–] Free Reddit colorisation request attempt before and after. Took about 10 hours but wanted to share some love moonweasel 10 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    To drastically oversimplify it: you use Photoshop, and you essentially guess/choose what the colors should be and “paint them in” or tint different areas “behind” the black-and-white picture

    [–] An Artist Should Not Win a Grammy if Their Songs Have 5+ Writers moonweasel 3 points ago in unpopularopinion

    If by “team of people” you mean a single, longtime writing partner, sure.

    [–] What life-altering things should every human ideally get to experience at least once in their lives? moonweasel 1 points ago in AskReddit

    You don’t need to buy the book. All the rules for Whole30 are on their website, and there are literally thousands of recipes just a Google away.

    [–] Here it comes ❄️ moonweasel 11 points ago in Bellingham

    This would be a great view for a time-lapse shot of the snow!

    [–] Cut down a man in cold blood, Shannon. Might as well be me! moonweasel 2 points ago in gratefuldead

    The event Bob was attending was Musicares 2019 gala; this year’s honoree was Dolly Parton.

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? moonweasel 11 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    A pretty common teaching is that the text as originally “dictated by God” is “infallible,” but translations into other languages are not, necessarily.

    [–] I want to learn how to sing . moonweasel 2 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago) in IWantToLearn

    Off the top of my head, I would break it into the following:

    Firstly learning/understanding the mechanical/physiological basis for how singing works (breath, vocal cords, resonance in mouth/nose) and how each of these affects pitch, tone, etc. — maybe 1–2 hours?

    Then learning and implementing a practice regimen which: —strengthens diaphragm/breath control —extends vocal range (basically gain the ability to sing higher than now) —improves pitch accuracy 30mins per day of exercises, 3x/wk for 12 weeks = 18 hours.

    Then from there you could continue to do exercises while branching out and learning specific techniques for different styles, genres, etc.

    [–] How to Use Death to Your Advantage moonweasel 20 points ago in InfluenceAdvice

    Not OP, but I read “desperately” in this context almost as a synonym for “passionately” — basically just throwing your whole self into whatever you do as if it’s the only thing that matters or exists. “Live every moment like it’s your last” kind of thing.
