2023.06.09 07:10 Longjumping_Window93 esp-dmx-gateway


i have an issue with this github
it requires artnetwifi v1.4, esp-dmx v1.1.3, wifimanager v1.12 and webserver latest version (same author from wifi manager)

i successfully managed to compile and upload the bin.
i am even able to push artnet into the esp32 and push dmx out of it , i am using qlc+ for this.

my issue is with the webserver. i try logging into the webserver using the ip that i configured the esp32 (i upload wifi settings by other means) but it gives me error. i tried logging into the host name but failed as well.

i think the host name is printed with this line
Serial.println("mDNS configured: " + String(DEVICE_NAME) + ".local");
i tried accessing to that and nothing

there are these lines too
// Wifi configuration portal settings
String unique_hostname = "ConnoDMX_" + String(ESP_getChipId(), HEX); // Suffix AP name with Chip ID
String ssid = unique_hostname;

i honestly do not know what to do with that, even less i understand it, i thought that is the webserver name, where esp_getchipid generate the mac of the esp32, but that is not printed on serial

i hope i can get some help please, and i hope i make myself clear.

have a nice day

2023.06.09 07:09 Witty-System-6069 26 [M4F] California/Anywhere. Searching For A Relationship.

Anyway, I live in California too, a state that I’m proud to call home and hopefully can live here the rest of my life too. Anyway, about me. I love to write poems, but people probably disagree with me that what I write isn’t really poetry. That’s understandable, people have different likes. The majority of what I write is dark/sad/somber, but I promise it’s not a reason to be concerned. I also write about love, hope, essentially all good feelings life has to offer.
I have an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts (Arts and Letters Emphasis) and a Certificate of Achievement in Communication Studies from Community College; and a Bachelors Degree in Anthropology from the university level.
Long story short, I’ve never been in a relationship before. I focused on my well-being in the six years I spent in college and searched for my personal values and that of what I’d like to find in a woman I may consider being in a relationship with. My personal values now are kindness, empathy, understanding. These are the 3 important values I hope a woman I meet has too. At the end of the day, we’re all people trying to get by in life and succeed as we see right. We all deserve to experience love and happiness, don’t we? I think that we do. I hope to meet a woman that believes in this too. Ultimately, I have a lot of love to give to the right woman. 😌
If this matters, I’m…
-165 pounds and on skinny side
-Black hair and brown eyes
When sending me a message or chat, please introduce yourself and not just say “hello.” I’d like to learn a little about you. I hope to meet a woman that’s at least 21. And yes, I’m fine talking to older woman too.

2023.06.09 07:09 JudeZambarakji When does a story benefit from or is made better by not having a central theme?

On online forums, I often see the argument that not every story needs a theme. This is the flip side version of the question of when a story needs a theme. I felt that those arguing that some stories don't need a theme often fail to point out when exactly a story needs or doesn't need to have a central theme, thematic statement, or moral.
When I posted the above question on Quora, I got the following answers (I've summarized the answers):
Choose-your-own-ending stories written in second-person narration don't need to have a central theme.
Mysteries, thrillers, and suspense stories that focus on mysteries and plot devices don't have to have a central theme (Quora's AI bot gave me this answer).
When the writer does not want to give his/her story a theme. Is this a legitimate answer to my question? How is this different from saying that a writer doesn't need to give his story a theme when he doesn't care about the quality of his story? In other words, how is this different from saying that a story doesn't need to have a theme when it doesn't need to be a good story? I felt that this answer dodged my question.
When the theme of a story is immoral, then the story would have been better if it had no theme at all.
If the theme is too obvious, then it would be better to write the same story without any theme than with this kind of theme. When is a story's theme so obvious that the story would be better off not having any theme whatsoever than having this particular theme?
In addition to the above points I've seen the following arguments for when a story would be better off without a central theme:
When a story is preachy. But what makes a story preachy?
A story should be open-ended and its central theme should be a question rather than a statement that forces the reader to accept the writer's point of view. Readers should be allowed to think for themselves.
I would like to know if you agree or disagree with the above points. I've not seen any surveys about whether or not most readers would prefer to read a story without a theme than to read a story whose theme they strongly disagree with. Does such a survey exist? Do you think the number of people who would prefer no theme to a theme they disagree with outnumber the people who prefer there be any kind of theme even a disagreeable one than there being no theme at all? And would writers be better off financially if they gave all their stories themes even if they believed that many readers would disagree with their themes? Would writers be happier and more fulfilled if they just gave all their stories a clearly laid out theme even if they feel uncomfortable giving certain stories a definitive conclusion?
Would you prefer a story to have a theme you disagree with than have no theme at all? For example, I detest the theme of the Legend of Korra series, but if you asked me if I would prefer it to have no theme, I would give you an emphatic "no".
I also hate the theme of the Arcane animated series. But these are 2 of my favorite animated series. I cannot imagine enjoying them without these themes that I hate so much. I suspect that these shows would be largely incomprehensible without their central themes, but I could be wrong. And I dislike incomprehensible stories more than I dislike right-wing stories.
I hate the Legend of Korra's theme because it says that the political status quo, whatever that may be for any given nation, is the best possible socio-economic system for a given nation because some sort of "balance" must be maintained. In my opinion, the so-called "balance" can best be described as a balance of military power between all warring kingdoms and nations i.e. no nation should have the power to conquer another nation. I think the Legend of Korra's theme could have been far better executed, but even if it were better executed, I would still hate the theme because of my left-leaning political orientation. I found its theme morally reprehensible. The theme also makes no sense, but I would still prefer a better-executed theme I disagree with than no theme at all.
And I hate Arcane's theme because I think the show hates poor people and is essentially saying that the only reason why the poor would want to overthrow the rich is out of jealousy and spite and not out of any legitimate economic grievance or out of any kind of economic necessity. But I still found the show very entertaining even though I found its theme morally questionable. I also love the 300 movie even though I wholeheartedly agree with a YouTuber called Big Joel that that movie is basically well-disguised Nazi propaganda.
I think it would make more sense for authors whose stories readers describe as propaganda or as immoral or preachy to write better-executed themes than to give up on the idea of giving their stories any theme whatsoever. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my assessment.

2023.06.09 07:09 Optimal-Specific9329 My partners narcissistic friend and confronting the things that bother us.

My partner has a female friend and they’ve known each other for about 10 years. He also has a twin brother (both gay), and the two of them have socialised with her for a while. I’ve picked up on a few of her behaviours and she’s a narcissist for sure. Her number 1 thing that gets to me though is that when my partner is around, she’s incredibly nice to me. When he’s not, she’s a completely different person. It created this situation where my partner would doubt what I was telling him. But, she did it in front of his Mum once and she got caught out.
Personally, I can’t stand her because of how toxic she is, and she triggers me with her behaviour. To give you an example. I ended up in intensive care. Granted, she was on her honeymoon in Africa, but I nearly died. She ignored all of my partners messages, and continued to do that when she got back for 3 weeks. Yet, she was posting insta photos everyday of her trip. Then of course she went completely the other way and over compensated. Also, It’s like she has some sort of ownership over my partner and she regularly does things that can be described as “splitting” and causes drama between us. I could go on. I decided though to employ a strategy of “if she’s there I’m not” just to avoid giving her the opportunity to cause trouble, but that would mean my partner would still go, and then I look like the troublemaker while she plays victim. It also causes problems if I ask my partner not to go, which I am uncomfortable doing anyway. She has me in a bit of a bind. They all admit that she’s manipulative “but she has some really good qualities too”. I’m yet to see them. One last thing. There’s 15 years between my partner and I. I am the older one. I have picked up that she finds the whole “older guy” thing as “gross and creepy”.
I’m not sure where I read it, but I recall there being something about facing your fears. Exposing yourself to these sort of people because that’s where you grow as a person. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts around that, or something I can read. Thank you.

2023.06.09 07:09 ThrowAway7s2 "A well organized Girl Scout weekend at Cuesta" from the May 29, 1973 Door County Advocate

A well organized Girl Scout weekend at Cuesta

Pop and Popcorn. Julaine Jeanquart, Patty Baudhuin, Mrs. David Marsh, Jackie LaVine, Teresa Stroh, Kelly McDougall, Barb Kelsey and Kim Pagenkopf.
It's secluded in a wooded area near Kangaroo Lake. The large cabin, of surprisingly modern construction, has no indoor plumbing. Lack of plumbing does not upset, or even surprise, the 12 eager girls tumbling out of station wagons with sleeping bags in tow. They are Junior Girl Scouts, Troop 350. And this is their first weekend camping experience at Cuesta.
Their leader, Mrs. David Marsh, supervises the stowing of bedrolls in open box-shaped cupboards. Next she shows everyone the "washing-up room"; basins are arranged on a shelf beneath the counter-top; towel racks are fastened to the shelf. A "water-boy" sits on one end of the counter-top. Perhaps because this is a girls' cabin, several mirrors adorn the walls.
Then everyone sits on benches at picnic tables in the middle of the main room to eat their nose­bag suppers. When appetites are satisfied, the leader instructs the girls to throw their paper bags into the fireplace. "We'll build a fire later and make popcorn."
"We want to go to the bathroom," announces Barbara.
"We know where it is," Paula adds, "right down the gravel path." Half a dozen of the girls put on their coats and go out into the gathering darkness, carrying flashlights.
Five minutes later they come running back, squealing and shoving one another to get into the cabin door.
"There's something out there!"
"Loud noises down by the outhouse!"
"Something is going bang­-bang-thud, bang-bang-thud!" Motioning for quiet their leader explains that there is nothing to be frightened of in the woods.
"I'll go back out with you, girls," Chaperone says with false bravado. "Maybe there are some rascally raccoons out there."
Shining her flashlight on the gravel path, Chaperone leads the way toward the source of the noise. Some of the less-intimidated scouts chant, "There's lions, and tigers, and bears, of my! Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!" Up ahead something is going bang-bang­-thud! Reaching the outhouse, Chaperone takes a firmer grip on her flashlight and pushes open the first door.
"Nothing in there!" She pushes open the second door. "Nothing in there!" From the other end of the outhouse comes bang-bang-­thud!
"No raccoons, girls; not even lions or bears. But watch the doors." The wind caught the doors. opening them slightly and banging them gently shut.
"Oh, it's only the wind banging the doors."
"Shucks" said Chaperone, wiping her brow.
Back in the cabin they gathered around Mrs. Marsh who ex­plained that they would now go on a night hike. Chaperone sighed softly and put her coat back on.
Down the gravel path, past the no-longer-scary outhouse, and out into a field under the stars, they walked.
"Look, there's the big dipper."
"And the little one too."
"I can see the North Star!"
Mrs. Marsh showed them several fire scars where they would do outdoor cooking tomorrow. Then they started back to the Scout Cabin singing, "The other day I saw a Bear"
After washing up, spreading bedrolls, and getting into their pajamas, they divided into "details": the fire-building detail, the find the pan and melt the butter detail, and the pop the corn detail. Chaperone took pictures of the gay group and joined them in eating buttered popcorn and drinking soda pop. Then, to bed.
At four o'clock in the morning, somebody shook Chaperone's shoulder and whispered in her ear, "Will you go to the bathroom with me?" Groggily Chaperone pushed back her covers and got to her feet. The scout who'd roused her was searching for something, using her flashlight as a guide. Whispers: "What are you looking for?" "My other red tennis shoe." "Did you look under your blanket?" "It's okay; I'll put on my boots instead." Just then another scout awakened and felt the need to join them. Once outside, and jogging down the now-familiar path, Chaperone became aware of how sweet and fresh the air smells at four in the morning.
Three hours later Mrs. Marsh sounded reveille. Quickly everyone washed up, dressed, and began the work of the preassigned Patrols. The Water Patrol filled three "water-boys" from the outdoor pump (started by electric switch). The Cooking Patrol began making French toast. Mary, flipping a piece of toast, asked, "Does this count toward our Cooking Badge?" Mrs. Marsh assured her that it certainly did. The Hospitality Patrol gathered leaves, shells, and pretty bits of wood and fashioned centerpieces for the tables. Breakfast ready, they sat down.
"Please pass the syrup," Kelly requested politely. The leader passed the pitcher. "Mrs. Marsh, that doesn't look like syrup on your French toast."
"Why, this is the syrup pitch­- oh no, this is the coffee pit­cher!" Amid the merry laughter, the leader tasted her French toast and pronounced it "Exotic! Sort of like the Galloping Gourmet might cook."
After cleanup and a brisk hike in the woods, the Cooking Patrol began making Jungle Brew over an outdoor fire. Ordinary cooks of the world would call it spaghetti 'n hamburger, or glorified goulash. Only Girl Scouts un­derstand its very special essence.
Early in the afternoon, co-leader, Mrs. Bob Schultz joined the campers. They spent the next two hours studying nature. Saturday's supper offered another surprising specialty, Hawaiian Eyes. Teresa and Patty placed shortcakes filled with crushed pineapple sweetened with brown sugar in aluminum foil wrappers. After heating in the campfire they made a scrumptious dessert. Mustard, meant for the hot dogs, was spilled five times during supper, once into someone's milk.
After supper, Brother Andrew arrived driving a cattle truck. Seeing the questioning look on Chaperone's face, Mrs. Schultz calmly explained that they would all ride in the back of the truck to attend mass in Baileys Harbor. It was just a windy enough ride to blow away all adult inhibitions. Before entering the church, everybody picked straw off their coats.
Before bedtime the scouts put on a hairstyling contest, shrugging off the fact that sleep would muss their elegant coif­fures.
Sometime around midnight, a voice came out of the darkness. Sleepy heads started up to hear Mrs. Schultz intone, "I want one print here, and one print there!" When nothing followed this startling pronouncement, the sleepy heads giggled and sank back into their pillows.
On Sunday afternoon they set off hiking down Logerquist road to visit the Brothers of St. Joseph Novitiate. Halfway there Brother Andrew met them in the cattle truck.
At the farm, operated by the Brothers, the scouts were treated to horseback rides. Then, Brother John asked, "Now, who would like to ride the bull?"
"The bull!! He'll throw us off!"
"No, he won't. He's a gentle old fellow, really." "Okay, I'll ride him." "So will I!" And ride him they did. The adults watched from a sensible distance.
After the rides, the Brothers invited them into the big recreation room of the farm­house. They gathered around the piano. Brother Andrew played and the girls sang. He surprised them by knowing every request.
Next, refreshments. The scouts brought out cupcakes and cookies from their totebags. Brother John served glasses of Kool-aid. Then it was time to pile into the back of the cattle truck. The girls said good-bye to Brother John and the spotted dogs, Alice and
Poncho. Brother Andrew drove them back to camp.
The cabin was tidied and locked. Then everyone par­ticipated in a flag ceremony to close the day. "Would you like camping here every weekend?" asked Mrs. Marsh. "Ye-e-sss!" came the enthusiastic reply.

2023.06.09 07:09 happyfreakinggardens Help! Is this normal?? Long post!

I've been renting for 3 years from a lady who lives very close to me. She asked in February if I would interested in buying her house and the house I rent as they are on the same land.
She had an appraisal done and it came back at 310k to which I said that's too high for me. She came back and said 280k and I said let me check interest rates. At the time they were around 5.5% and I said I wasn't sure so then she offered owner financing at 4%. I agreed and then signed a rental contract in March that said until July or when the house sells. In April I painted the kitchen and bathroom and began tidying up/buying things. In May she comes to me and says no owner financing. Interest rates are now up to 6.5% and I hustled to get a lender and a real estate lawyer and pre-approval. THEN I find out she doesn't want to move out until the end of July because she is running a home business and something or the other so this now begins to effect when I can lock in an interest rate. I had the real estate lawyer draft a contract and I asked for things to be split as fairly as possible in whatever is the normal way. Send to her and she sends back another contract which she signs where I am paying for everything and also liable for everything. She will not split closing costs. The way the contact is laid out, I am to have an inspection sign that I am okay with it within 5 days and she is not responsible for fixing anything if something is wrong. The termite inspection is to take place in July because closing would be August 1st meaning if I've signed I am okay at the end of June and termites are found in July I've already committed Earnest money. Also the seller doesn't want to be liable for termites found. Furthermore she has in the contract that she will not be providing warranties and I really need a general warranty deed with English covenants of Title. Also she has in there she won't make any corrections to defects I might find in the walkthrough.
I am feeling very distressed about all of this. I know 280k is lower than 310k but I feel very much like she is running the whole show. If I had known the real offer was 280k at whatever the rate was when she felt like signing a contract plus all these costs and liabilities I would've started looking for houses in February when rates were below 6% in my area. She wanted to do this whole thing without real estate agents and so I haven't had any guidance. I am seriously offended by this last contract and only really understand it because my late's father's best friend is an attorney who offered to read it. My own real estate attorney just told me "just write changes you want" instead of explaining to me everything going on. I have just yesterday enlisted a real estate agent and new lender as of today and I am honestly worried she will be upset and evict me. Maybe that is dramatic. But this whole thing is rubbing me the wrong way. I was actually happy to pay 280k for all of this because I would have both a house and a small cottage to use as rental income. But I am feeling taken advantage of here with the liability and costs lately. I just wanted things split fairly. I have instructed my new real estate agent to negotiate things fairly but I am also considering just ditching and looking at other houses under 300k. I've got a bad taste in my mouth from this experience. Other things to note - while I have been renting this cottage we've had a looser landlord/tenant arrangment than most people. I do have a formal lease but for example, there's been ants in the bathroom and kitchen now for a week and nothing has been done, there's a showerotten wood issue in my bathroom and instead of dealing with the contractor she is out of town and I am supposed to meet the contractor to deal with it. The water will be turned off while they are fixing the bathroom so I have to go live somewhere else for a week. I was of the belief that landlords had to make provisions for their tenants and I have been so understanding and patient because I have been worried about this deal falling through. There are different boundaries when it's tenant/landlord vs. buyeseller.
I guess this is both rant and an ask for advice? I am totally overwhelmed. I run a home business and need a stable place to live.

2023.06.09 07:09 sadstrwbry 21F CA Looking To Make Friends Online

Hi everyone. I’m currently attending community college. I don’t have a lot of friends. I’m usually at home for my remote classes because of my health, so I haven’t stepped foot on campus and actually socialized with new faces since I graduated hs. I’ve only made one online friend on Reddit and met my now-boyfriend on here as well. I like to draw, read, play games on my switch, watch movies, I’m also fond of anime and a once-in-awhile cannabis user. I’d really want to make new friends in my age group, online or IRL. If you want to talk on discord, let me know.

2023.06.09 07:08 Inside_Part102 AITA for yelling at my roomates?

AITA? I female (23) and 2 roommates female (22) and another female (20) have been living together for the past year and a half. The other two girls are very close friends. We live in a townhouse with three stories and four rooms. All rooms used to be filled until one roomate got married and moved out. I was able to quickly find another person and personal friend to fill her spot.
The relationship with the other two roomates to honest is not great. There are some underlying factors, like personality differences but the tension started to grow with one incident. One of the roomates asked if they could negotiate the amount they paid (525 for the entire bottom floor of the townhouse) a couple months after signing the contract. I said no, but if she would like to move into one of the cheaper rooms upstairs I would help her move. She said no, and that she didn’t want to move her stuff. The conversation escalated somewhat but decided I would pay for some storage on her floor to help her out with rent. She later asked me if I could pay more in rent, and when I said no, asked if we could up the price of the room (I had offered my personal friend to) without her knowing and make her pay more, even though she was going to be living in the smallest room.
So you get a better image of the dynamic I will say I struggle remembering to clean the dishes and take out the trash, but generally good about cleaning the common area after using it. This is something both roomates had issues with and I thought we had made compromises, i eating on paper plates and generally using less dishes to cut down on the amount. I had thought we were making decent progress until I heard from another roomate she wanted to move out, while unfortunate I was able to find another person to fill her space. About two weeks after I heard again through the other roomate she had changed her mind, and had to tell the person I found to fill her space I could not accommodate her.
Less than a month before the lease was to renew , I was notified that both were moving out and I would have rent increase by 925 dollars. I was somewhat relived though when they said they would help me find new roomates. While i found one person to fill a room I still needed the other one filled.
I am currently taking this on myself to prevent the other two roomates from having to pay, one is a grad student and the other a teacher (also going into the deal I had told them the original prices and didn’t want to go back on my word).
I had been asking my roomates over the past three weeks if they had any updates on the roomate situation with no one responding to it but responding to other questions. I asked one of the roomates directly and she said she had two leads, one of which I know so I reached to her directly and asked if she knew what her plans were (but she had found a place closer to work). I then asked my roomate if she had the contact of the other person so I could ask her directly, she said no because she was communicating with them though a mutual friend and had not heard from them in a week. I went to the other roomate and asked them if they had search for anyone to fill the space and she said no.
I became very frustrated at this and asked why she had not been looking. She said she had been busy looking at other apartments with her friend and had not had time, then explained she thought the other roomate and I had it figured out. I said we had not and re-iterated that she said she would look for roomates and she had not and that this was going to add an additional 400 dollars to my rent. (At this point I was getting frustrated and raising my voice) she looked at me flustered and told me to calm down (granted I should have because I was starting to yell at this point. She said that I should calm down because her and the other roomate had been helping me look despite leaving. After interjecting I said that she specifically said she had not been helping and not even telling me she had not been looking despite me asking for weeks. At this point the other roomate tried to defend her but realized I was so angry and shut the door in my face. I stormed out and when I had calmed down came back in and apologized for yelling. I said it was inappropriate that I yelled but felt like they were brushing off giving me a 925 dollar increase on my rent with five weeks notice. She said she would talk to me tomorrow, what should I expect, AITA?

2023.06.09 07:08 Tasty-Temporary1585 tough times… what to do

hi guys. I’m having a tough time coping recently due to high stress in my home life. looking for some advice on different ways that you guys cope in uncontrollable situations. those usually seem to be my downfall, as I find a reason in myself if there is no “logical reason” for things to happen…
I’ve been unemployed for about 6 months due to depression, BPD & PTSD and before that I had a hard time holding a job as well. so stress #1: financial stress. stress #2 I had a house fire in which I was in the home as well as my cats (who all got out alive) so I lost 75% of all my belongings and my apartment. stress #3 due to financial strain I have lost my car because I couldn’t afford the payments. so that also makes it hard to find the right job for me. and stress #4 my cat has been very sick for about 2 months, and just today I had to make the hard decision to put her down, to not prolong her suffering.
anyways, sorry for the long explanation. hopefully someone actually takes the time to read this 🙏🏻

2023.06.09 07:08 CircusPirate My (30f) coworker (30s?m) stalked me and I'm super uncomfortable

So I work in an office environment during the day, and as a side hobby/side gig I perform aerial circus and dance. My coworkers know this is a hobby, and often mention how they would love to see me perform, but I've been pretty clear with all of them that I prefer to keep these two parts of my life separate and I don't invite coworkers to my shows. They're not inappropriate or anything, my mother even comes to watch, but it's something I do for my own enjoyment and if my coworkers are watching a show it's going to make me feel way more nervous/stressed and I won't have fun. My coworkers have historically all respected this boundary.
I have a show coming up this month. A newer coworker that I don't even really interact with much asked me a while back when my next show was going to be and I repeated the same boundary to him that I've repeated to the rest of the office. He responded with, "I'm going to find out and show up to one," to which I responded, "seriously, please don't." That was the end of the conversation and I thought he understood.
Well, yesterday he sends me an email saying, "can't wait to see you perform on ___ date at ___ location!" Which means he actually did track down my next show. I have absolutely no idea how.
Today I also found out from someone else in the office that he was recently talking about it at an office event that I was not at, and was trying to convince others in the office to buy tickets and join him, to which my coworkers ALSO reinforced my boundary and told him "she doesn't want coworkers at her shows" and "I'm sure if she wanted us to know about it she would have told us about it" and "if she hasn't invited us, we aren't going to go." He allegedly responded with, "well, I'm going."
I am now feeling extremely uncomfortable. Here's the thing... if he had just happened to show up at this show without knowing I would be performing or without knowing this was a boundary I had, it would not have been a big deal at all. It is an event open to the public and I know I can't control whether or not I run into people I know at these things.
But it's the fact that he asked, I said no and made my boundary very clear, other people reinforced that boundary, and he is intentionally ignoring it. He specifically threatened to and then actually did track down this information about me after I told him I did not want him there, then sent me an email basically taunting me about it.
I am feeling super icked out by all of that. I also can't understand what his motivation/intention is. In the beginning, I could see that maybe he was just trying to be a friendly/supportive coworker, but at the point where multiple people have made it clear that this is actually crossing a boundary, there's no way he can think he's being supportive or nice in doing this. So what is he trying to accomplish? I can't help but feel he's actually TRYING to make me feel uncomfortable on purpose.
I have talked to our boss about this, and she was very supportive of me and let me know that I have every right to want this boundary between my work life and my personal life and that what he was doing was inappropriate. She let me know that she would address it with him and follow up with me after. I'm not sure that she can tell him to not go, because this is an event open to the public that he is attending outside of work hours. But I do know she's taking it seriously.
That being said, I still feel incredibly uncomfortable and I'm not sure how to move forward from this. I really enjoy my job a lot, but I felt extremely anxious walking into my office today (luckily he was not around). Still, it's a very small office, so I will have to work with this guy a lot moving forward, and I'm not sure how to handle that. I feel so creeped out and uncomfortable.
Why do you think he would do this? How am I supposed to deal with him moving forward?
Tldr: coworker ignored my boundary, tracked down my information, and is coming to a show I asked him not to come to.

2023.06.09 07:08 Imjustthatgoooood Trying to find an AI Paul McCartney cover song that was deleted yesterday when all my troubles seemed so far away

Hi, I had found a really great Ai song which was Paul McCartney's voice on Electric light orchestra's or ELO's "telephone lines" however from what I could tell the music which sounded like a plain acoustic piano is entirely original, even the vocals was something in which I think the youtuber (now terminated) had done themselves as I could not find another video which sounded like it. I don't remember the youtubers handle, though I did see other video's which had Paul doing other songs from ELO tagging someone who created the tracks "at sign tdash7" and I don't remember exactly how I found this but I ended up finding a Youtube channel which had a familiar name "Tyler Squire" which also happens to have been deleted as when I clicked on the page it took me to an error page all this being said, If anyone has info on this song i'd really love the input and will answer any questions because I don't want to give up on this song. Here: you can find the channel "Alternate Universe Records," which in his description they have tdash7 mentioned; how we know tdash7 isn't alternate universe records is because he has other vids mentioning other ai song cover creators. Lastly, if you look at the image here, this was the cover used for the video, if anyone has answers or the video please do tell me. Thank ya very much.

2023.06.09 07:08 t0msss Need an advice with my schedule

Hello, how would you schedule my day? Is working out fasted ok in my case?
1:00 wake up 2:00 start work 12:00 finish work 12:30 workout starts (weight lifting) 14:00 workout ends 14:30 eating window starts 18:30 eating window ends 19:00 sleep
I have to workout straight after work and it makes it easier for me if I don't have to prep any food for work. And even if I do, having small meal at work makes me so hungry I might simply skip gym and go home to have another meal lol. So I find it easier to not eat at all, get the job and workout done and start thinking about food after I can finally chill at home. Has anybody done that? How was your performance at the gym after being awake for 10+ hours and in fasted state for 16+ hours?

2023.06.09 07:07 interruptingmygrind Management is trying to save $2.83 but it’s costing me. How should I approch my grievance?

My center has had me coming in 10 minutes after start time for the past 4 weeks. Myself and the newest loader on my belt are the only two people in the whole building on this staggered schedule. I talked to my ft manager about this and their logic for doing this was that it takes a package 10 min to make its way to the end of the belt so by the time my shift starts packages should begin reaching me. This bullshit response is not only not true as packages reach the end in just a few minutes but this also doesn’t take into consideration all the other things I do while waiting for packages to reach me such as loading the packages taken off trucks onto a cart and reviewing my truck layout to strategize my load plan. Hell even if I’m stretching or checking my phone one last time I’m still preparing for 3 heavy nonstop hours of work.
This has been a horrible way to start my shift as I am forced to jump into our work machine instead of easing my way in. Doing this only increases the potential of miss loads which they are always crying about how us loaders cost the company when we aren’t perfect so given all that it has me questioning what the true motive is for doing this. I know I shouldn’t take things personal at UPS but I do also know that I just hit my 9 month mark so as of now I cost the company more then I did last month which puts me in priority dispose territory. It doesn’t seem logical that they are doing this just to save $2.83 as pathetic as that is so I’m wondering if it’s really them harrassing me toward quiting since that seem to be a more logical reason.
Days that I arrive 10 min early I jump into work like everyone else so they get 10 free minutes out of me. Days when I arrive I minute before shift I arrive to find a supervisor pulling my packages stacking me out until I arrive so they are stealing either my work or my time. Then yesterday I learned that start time was bumped up 30 min but didn’t know about it because everyone was told during the pre meeting which I obviously miss. This cost me the income I could have made had I known and placed me on different trucks which were cut early so yesterday alone they stole several hours from me. Whatever the case I’m currently writing up my grievance but I wanted to reach out to my brothers and sisters to get your advice about what I should be grieving here.

2023.06.09 07:07 Diligent-Product2499 One last time...

I'm redoing my post because I broke my goal.
I sexted and masturbated for the last time officially NOW! I am now committed to abstinence.
For a little background: got into watching porn from an ex and starting engaging in online sexting after that. I feel like it was becoming a compulsive habit or at worst, a sex addiction so I decided I have to be abstinent.
Plus, I have a goal of working with young children one day (I'm female) and I feel like this would corrupt me for that job.
Wish me luck on my journey.

2023.06.09 07:07 No_Mood_7461 You know where to find me

I knew the moment I walked in the door something was off. A half hour later, listening to you, I thought, "so this is how it ends". Was the kiss you asked for a kiss goodbye? I know you have to go there, and I know it has nothing to do with me. I know you didn't want or plan to hurt me, I know you regret that I am a casualty. I don't hate you for it. I'm so sad thinking that you might get hurt again and there's nothing I can do to protect you. I hope that you find everything you're looking for. I want you to be happy with or without me. If you find you've made a mistake, you know where to find me. I will rest easy knowing I never hurt you, never lied to you, never betrayed your trust, and always unreservedly gave you all of myself. It hurts but I know it's not my fault. I honor the choices you are making. It's your adventure. I wasn't going to say it because you've said it has little meaning for you and you don't know if you've ever felt it, but I do. I love you enough to let you go. It is mortifying to think I'm the one you were struggling to tell the truth to when I watched you agonizing in indecision? Doubt? Confusion? I don't want to be the one to cause you pain just by loving you. I will not try to hold you back from seeking your heart's desire. If you don't find it in her I hope you recognize that you already had it. Should you need someone to pick up the pieces you know where to find me. I hope to always be your safe harbor in a storm. Love, Me

2023.06.09 07:07 stnick6 [F4A] You’re vampire mistress confronts you [Vampire] [humor] [inhuman listener]

This is my first script. I’ve had a few ideas before but this time I just forced myself to start working on it
If anyone wants to record this feel free to do so, as long as you send me the link.
I like to think I’m a fair boss.
I pay you a fair wage and all I ask is that you do a few fair chores and once in a while I ask to feed.
It’s not like I do it often. I have dozens of servants so you only have to be fed upon once a month.
So why is it that when it’s your feeding day I wake up to find my bag empty?
Was the contract not clear in its wording? Every 27 days at 9:00 p.m. you were to head down to the feeding room, hook yourself up to the IV, and fill just one bag with your delicious blood so I can start my night off with a meal.
Shhhhh! I don’t want any excuses. You’ve tested my patience. I’m going to feed on you wether you want to or not. Now, are you going to let me feed on you, or are you going to make this harder on yourself?
That’s a good pet. vampire bite sound effect disgusted spitting
WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? What do you mean you “got no blood”? How? Were born like this? Wait wait wait, you’re a flesh golem? How? No I know how golems are made, I mean how can you be a golem all this time without me knowing?
How did you even get this job? Having blood is a very important part of selecting a servant! You took some from an ambulance and passed it off as your own? Ignoring how incredibly immoral that is why would you even do that?
What do you mean you wanted this job? You do know what I am right? I’m an evil vampire queen who’s taking desperate people from their family’s to be used as maids and blood bags! Why would you want to work here?
Well I guess that is true. I do have a lot of maids for a relatively small house and I don’t use most of the rooms so that leaves very little actual cleaning to be done. Do all the servants feel this way? Hmm, I thought they hated me.
Well I’ll think about that later. For now I have to deal with you. I can’t exactly keep you around knowing your “secret” but I have a feeling you’re not willing to leave without a fight.
Hmmm, now that I think about if I have had a resent problem with so called “vampire hunters” sneaking into my home in a fool hearty attempt at killing me. How would you feel about becoming my new body guard? Very well, you’ll start on Monday.
Until then fetch Maria, I’m still hungry. What do you mean “that might be a problem”? Yes I know there’s a full moon out what of it? SHES A WHAT?
