2023.06.07 20:50 ImmuneCoder Profile Review : Indian Male 2024 2+2 aspirant
Indian Male, Electrical and Electronics Engineering from BITS Pilani
CGPA : 8 - 8.5 (by the time I apply)
Internships : Electronics Intern at top MNC, VC intern at top Indian angel community
Others : Building India's largest student-run startup accelerator, have a great story to tell there
EC : Won at two hackathons (one of them being a reputed international one), part of a good consulting club where I'm working with real clients, played cricket at school level, do casual running now
Haven't take GMAT or GRE yet, though I have a valid IELTS score (band 8.5), which I took a couple of years back.
I plan to apply to M7 2+2 programs in the next cycle (2024). I wanted to realistically understand my chances of getting in, considering I am an ORM (from what I understand). I wanted to speak to someone who had a similar profile (Indian, male, top engineering college) to get an idea of what goes into a successful application.
What is my ideal course of action over the next one year to get there? Any kind of advice/help is appreciated. Thank you for reading through the entire pos!

2023.06.07 20:50 minimoumspace Any review of the Atoll DA100 / DA200 DAC board ?
Hi, I wonder if any of you had the opportunity to try the optionnal Atoll DA100 or DA200 digital to analog optionnal board ?
I know it's a very specific product and didn't find any review on internet.
I am currently using a RbPi with moOde and a Aune X1S Dac which is sometime too bright for my tastes, I know it beacause I already tried it on few electronics. I know the Atoll is based on AKM-AK4490 chip, whereas the Aune is based but does the brand of the DAC chip really matter ?

2023.06.07 20:50 DudethatCooks Vault weapon AOW attachments are underwhelming to say the least
I am going to preface this post with the disclaimer I wasn't expecting much from AOW attachments in the first place, but man the lack of options actually added still comes short of my already small expectations.
I'll go weapon by weapon for anyone interested.
M16A3- I have little issue with the M16A3. It has a plethora of barrel options, most grip options, although I personally would have loved to see the MGL laser sight added. Puzzlingly the OG red dot 1.25x was removed and the only 1.25x sight options available is the kobra sight or TR-1 thermal. Overall this is what I expected AOW attachment options to look like on vault weapons minus the puzzle exclusion of sights I'd consider to be std across the board like a 1.25x red dot or K8 holo.
ACW-R- This is where it already goes off the rails to me. There are plenty of sight options, minus the K8 holo again. However, the barrel options are underwhelming to put it lightly. You have a whopping 4 choices. Standard barrel, wrapped suppressor, 6KU suppressor, and a warhawk compensator. There is no champion muzzle break, tactical compensator, or arcom tactical muzzle brake which IMO is pretty bad. The underbarrel attachments are not much better. The only new attachments are a bipod and STNR laser sight. You get 6 total options. Standard underbarrel, bipod (yay?), flashlight 😑, STNR laser sight, foregrip (worse than it was before), and a LS-1 laser sight. To not even get the LGW or BCG light grips at minimum is ridiculous IMO and I'm just curious at why even the MGL laser sight couldn't be considered considering the lack of options altogether. Also the UI is wrong on the extended mag. It isn't 36 bullets its 40 for the extended mag. How does know one catch that?
A-91- The sights are fine unless you like the K8-holo like me, the barrel options are fine too as it covers what I'd consider to be the standard for AOW weapons. It has the champion muzzle brake, wrapped suppressor, warhawk compensator, arcom tactical muzzle brake, tactical compensator, and 6KU suppressor which I would consider to be the minimum all vault weapons should have. What I do have a problem with is the under barrel options. There is literally nothing new. It is std underbarrel (nothing), a flashlight, LS1-laser sight, and a forgrip which again is worse than what it was before this update. I find it laughable that the A-91 can't even get any other grips or laser sights when the foregrip fits. You can't convince me a BCG, LGW, or MGL laser sight wouldn't fit if the large foregrip does.
M416- Sights are fine, K8 holo users get disappointed. The barrel attachments are pathetic like the ACW-R. You get the standard barrel, wrapped suppressor, warhawk compensator, or 6KU suppressor. Thats it. The underbarrel is where DICE really lose me. Now I'm sure there are people who love under barrel GL/shotgun options, but how much time was spent and was necessary to add every M320 option (frag, smoke, bucks, and armor) AND 4 options for the M26 (mass buck, dart, frag, slug) option while failing to add a single STNR or MGL laser sight. At least there is the option for a BCG and LGW grips, but to only have the LS-1 laser sight while offering 8 under barrel weapon options feels like bloat when I rarely see those options being used.
MTAR-21- Our first sighting of the K8 holo. As with the other vault ARs no real complaints about the sights on offer. The barrel options though are just a real head scratcher. Once again it seems the champion muzzle brake, arcom tactical muzzle brake, and tactical compensator are too cumbersome to add, but we get the ability to attach the type 4 heavy suppressor and the PB heavy suppressor. Had the other attachments been included I wouldn't have a problem with the heavy suppressors being an option, but outside of just wanting to use them for the cool factor who is attaching the suppressors that dramatically increase TTK? Who was saying "you know what the MTAR-21 really needs? The heavy suppressors!"? The underbarrel options are abysmal. You get 5 whopping options. Standard (nothing), flashlight, LS-1 laser sight, foregrip, and LGW grip. You want to use a better laser sight or BCG grip? Kick rocks.
AEK-971- You get the K8 holo option, the OG red dot, and anything else you'd want really. No complaints on the sights. The barrel options cover the minimum I'd accept so no real complaints from me. With it being a Russian weapon I'd expect this to be a candidate for the PB heavy suppressor, but it doesn't. Not a big deal it at least covers all the compensators, muzzle brake, wrapped, and 6KU suppressor. The underbarrel as with most of these guns is underwhelming. We have the GP-30 frag, smoke, buck, or LVG option, a bipod , forgrip, or LS-1 laser sight. That's it. Once again no BCG light grip, LGW, MGL laser, or STNR laser sight.
Once again I had low expectations coming into this update to vault weapons, but IMO for not ever vault weapon to have at minimum the warhawk compensator, tactical compensator, champion muzzle brake, arcom tactical muzzle brake, wrapped suppressor, 6KU suppressor as barrel options and for underbarrels to not offer at minimum the BCG light grip, LGW grip, foregrip, one of either the MGL laser sight or STNR laser sight is IMO a complete lack of effort from DICE. You cannot convince me that a gun that can fit a forgrip on its underbarrel is incapable of fitting one of those other options listed above. Sure I'm probably nitpicking that the K8 holo isn't included in every weapon, but that is a std site on most weapons in the game.
Overall DICE somehow managed to fall short of my already low expectations for the vault weapon AOW attachment update. To know that we get this sad of an update on vault weapons and that to do so will cost us getting more vault weapons this season makes the update feel even worse. I will have even lower expectations on the rest of the weapons as this season progresses I guess.

My m55q6 model is having issues with connecting to smart cast. This started 2 weeks ago. Wifi in my apt works for all other electronics without any problems. I even tried using an Ethernet cable and still no change. I’ve reset the tv thru the settings and did a hard reset by unplugging my tv for 30 seconds and holding the reset button afterwards. Any suggestions or should I move to a Samsung?

2023.06.07 20:50 Chasedawolf Apartment setup
Hello all, I’m thinking of starting a new venture in equipment for apartment drumming. I had an electronic kit for a time but I find it insanely uncomfortable compared to an acoustic kit. With that being said, all the new advancements in low volume drumming have me intrigued was thinking of getting a small kit such as the Sonor Jungle and swapping the heads for Evans DB ones and also getting the DB one cymbals. My downstairs neighbors would only complain about my kick foot at times so I plan on also putting down some thick padding and doing some sound proofing. Now my question is does anyone have any experience with this? Have your neighbors complained? Are the DB ones effective?

2023.06.07 20:49 T2Kills Lumix S5ii/x video wobble
Looking at getting an s5ii or s5iix and i was completely sold until i saw a review saying that the wobble is bad when using ibis. Checked out some more videos and it seems to be horrendous. Can anyone with one of these cameras shed any light on their experience with this wobble? The video reviews kind of pushed it to the extreme tests by walking very fast and making no effort to stabilise the camera themselves, I am wondering if you walk slow and steady with ibis on is there still a wobble? Even the slightest bit of wobble is unacceptable for me so i was wondering if anyone could tell me their experience when recording video.
Another thing is the electronic shutter. Has this caused any problems with warping the image for anyone or does it only happen in extreme cases?
Any input is appreciated, thank you.

2023.06.07 20:49 dvslocksmith Is it possible to program two different cars with the same key fob?
The Function of Key Fobs in Car Security
It's critical to comprehend the function of key fobs in automotive security before exploring the potential of programming the same key fob to operate two vehicles. Key fobs act as electronic transmitters for the onboard computer system of a car. They make it easy to access the car by opening doors, turning on the alarm, and even starting the engine.
The Special Identification of Key FobsEvery key fob includes a special identification code that is sometimes referred to as a "rolling code" or a "transponder code." This code is essential for the security of the car since it prevents unauthorised entry by making sure that only the right key fob can connect with the computer system of the vehicle.
It's quite improbable that two distinct key fobs will have the same identification code given the nature of these unique codes. Therefore, using the same key fob to programme two separate cars would often not work. The Importance of Correct Car Key Programming
For the key fob and the vehicle's computer system to work together successfully, car key programming requires specialised training and tools. This procedure entails synchronising the key fob's special code with the vehicle's system so that they can properly interact.
I highly suggest DVS Locksmith in Schiller Park for dependable and precise car key programming. They are qualified to precisely programme your key fob thanks to their experience in the automotive locksmith sector and their possession of the required tools and skills. The Value of Manufacturer Guidelines and Security
It's important to remember that tampering with or attempting to go around a car's security system could have negative effects. Systems in cars are built with security and safety in mind, so changing them without the right information and permission could jeopardise the integrity of your car.
Therefore, whenever you need to programme a car key, it is imperative that you speak with experts like DVS Locksmith. They are knowledgeable about the most recent industry standards and are capable of offering dependable services while following manufacturer recommendations.
The truth is that each key fob has a different identifying code, despite the fact that it could seem convenient to use a single key fob for several cars. Due to the requirement for synchronisation between the key fob and the vehicle's computer system, programming two separate cars with the same key fob is typically not feasible.
DVS Locksmith is the company to call in Schiller Park if you need auto key programming. They are qualified to handle your Car Key Programming in Schiller Park
needs due to their experience in the automotive locksmith sector. Always prioritise your vehicle's security, and follow manufacturer instructions for a dependable and secure result.

2023.06.07 20:48 Scryptiid Find a tuner or learn to tune myself?
TLDR - Is it a terrible idea to learn tuning and tune my turbo car myself? Or should I really take the time to find a tuner even if I have no history with them, and they have little experience with my specific model?
Hello all. I’ve got a Z32 with a TT swap/conversion (honestly don’t know which, working on identifying). Bigger turbos, injectors, manifolds, full exhaust, upgrade IC and intake piping, and other mods. It runs and drives great on a chipped ECU currently with an external electronic boost controller. However, I’d like to add some functionality (boost by gear, better idle control), better monitoring, and engine protection. Might also like a DBW conversion and conversion to MAP instead of a MAF.
I also am concerned about leaving it running on a 33-year old ECU, and having isolated systems rather than centralized management.
None of the local tuners are very familiar with the platform. I’ve talked to some shops further away that do specialize in the Z32 but I’ve not been able to get any clear recommendations on whether or not I should use a standalone ECU.
There are local shops willing, but they openly admit they don’t work with this chassis/engine often. Nearly all the shops and tuners except two suggest Haltech. One has suggested Link, the other told me they have no interest in swapped cars. Some self-tuners, vendors, and others have told me Link is the better option between the two. Both tuning platforms have good options for this car (Elite 2500 with adapter or G4X plug-in).
With the kinda lackluster information and response I’ve gotten from tuners, I’m honestly wondering how hosed I would be if I chose to take the time to learn tuning concepts and knowledge myself, and eventually tune the car myself. I believe I’m capable, but I’m also wary of making a serious mistake because of what I don’t know. Based on what I’ve been told, and my basic understanding of functionality, I’d probably choose to use the Link ECU myself.
How bad an idea is this? I know how valuable experience is, and I don’t have it. But I have time, patience, and I enjoy learning. I just wonder if I can actually get a solid, reliable result self-tuning, especially without access to a dyno. I have relatively solid mechanical experience, some electrical, and I’d like to believe I have a good understanding of what is happening with EFI systems. Just don’t know the intricacies, or what all the adjustment truly does. This isn’t a daily, and I can afford to have the car down and out, but certainly don’t want to blow the engine.

Can anyone point me to a wiring diagram and/or manual for the bike?
I'm looking to replace my gauges and indicators with new modern stuff and I'm also not the greatest with electronics...I can follow directions and tutorials but I can't seem to find anyone who's done what I'm looking to do on this bike specifically. Car guys tend to photograph everything step by step and make it dirt simple for people to do the thing they did but with bikes it doesn't look like it or maybe I'm missing it.
For context what I'm specifically wanting to do is this...
Replace the speedo and tach with a DCmotive GPS speedo/tach
and then wire up a motosign mini
for the oil light, side stand, neutral and high beam lights.
Looking to the group for any info you can share or feedback.

2023.06.07 20:42 hates_oppression My Resmed CPAP seems to work fine with square wave output UPS
I have a Resmed AirSense™ 10 Elite -Tripack 3G, and a UPS that provides square wave output. We have many power outages and sometimes lightning storms that can kill electric/electronic devices. So for that reason, I am always unwilling to run my CPAP off of the mains power supply.
I did purchase a UPS for my computer, and wondered if my CPAP would work fine on it. So after some research online, I decided to try it out, and it works just fine. No damage to the device. Will report back after a full night of actual use.

I've been abused verbally and phiscally, bullied and all the usual shit. I understand that someone normal has changes but I don't, my brain holds me back, back everytime, all my life and I fucking tried to change, I tried and I dot have the power to get disciplined, I don't know how to learn and I always envied all the kids that got support and we're encouraged to be creative and smart meanwhile I went to sleep on empty stomachs, like please I read so many stories of people making it out but I just, if only it felt easier to get stuff done. Even the stuff I really really love I can't study, it's a fucking joke. I'm stressed from anxiety and that dumbs me down. What's the point if it will never get better, never,never.

2023.06.07 20:37 BloodWagon On September 15, 1958 someone deliberately caused the crash of a Soo Line passenger train in Hamel, MN, and got away with it
By Rail to Canada, no Passport Needed
The clock showed 9:30 PM, Central Standard Time, September 15, 1958. Soo Line Train 9/13 was 21 minutes behind schedule as it cruised along in the fall Minnesota night, heading into the shallow bend towards the town of Hamel. There was no need to slow down from 58 MPH (93 kph) as the approaching station was not a stop for the train on its way to Portal, North Dakota and Winnipeg, Manitoba. From Minneapolis to Glenwood, Minnesota the two trains, also known as the “Dominion” and the “Winnipeger”, ran together before being split for their final destinations. The Dominion would be picked up by the Canadian Pacific for connection to Vancouver, British Columbia the next day.
GP9 diesel-electric locomotive No. 557 lead the train with the engineer and fireman aboard, followed by cabless power unit 503B. Behind them came six baggage cars, five sleepers, three coaches, and a lounge car, not in that order. Aboard the cars were 75 passengers, about five Pullman Company sleeping car porters, three dining service employees, three mail clerks, two baggagemen, the conductor (H.M. Ratje), and two brakemen.
Bright headlights shown ahead in the dark. The firemen, seated on the lefthand side of the cab, was observing a road crossing ahead of them. The engineer, Herman J. Steinke, was keeping an eye out on the tracks ahead. One detail was missed by both men, however. A green light supposed to mark the switch for the siding that served local businesses in Hamel was dark. In fact, although they never could have seen it, the lock had been bashed off and the switch thrown so it pointed into the siding. The lamp extinguished. At full speed, Train 9/13 rocked hard and as it hit the siding curve 120 feet later, jackknifed across the tracks at 9:35 pm.
Miraculously, no one was killed as the first eight cars and both locomotives derailed spectacularly. Sixteen people were hospitalized for their injuries among the dozens treated at the scene. Witnesses in Hamel reported the crash impact felt like an earthquake, calling in to the Hennepin County Sheriff to notify them of the disaster. The Sheriff’s emergency calls were answered by Civil Defense rescue teams and six fire departments within thirty minutes to begin the process of extracting those unable to escape the cars. Uninjured patrons were bussed back to Minneapolis by the Soo Line for the night, to figure out ways of getting them on to their destinations.
It was during the rescue efforts that a Hamel Fire Department firefighter noticed the damage to the switch lock that prevented tampering. While it was locked to point into the switch rather than the main line, he noticed that the shackle of the lock had clearly been battered open before being re-closed. Investigation by police and ICC officials also disclosed that someone had tried to batter the lamp’s connecting bolt so it could be rotated to give a false ‘clear’ indication. When that had failed, someone had apparently settled for extinguishing it. Five hours before Train 9/13 came through Hamel, about 4:30 PM, the local track maintenance foreman had inspected the line. He reported the switch had been set correctly at the time but could not remember if the lamp was lit yet. It was fueled twice a week, having been topped off three days before.
The Suspect, the official Verdict, and the Aftermath.
By the first of October railroad police were seeking a man known to peddle sewing needles door-to-door in the Hamel area. He was in his fifties, stoop-shouldered, an ‘eccentric dresser’ who wore a flap-eared cap. Local residents had noticed the man in the area of the siding earlier in the evening but thought nothing of it at the time. Police apparently failed to locate him, or cleared him of wrongdoing, as no further remarks on this suspect appear in the newspapers.
On December 17, 1958 the Interstate Commerce Commission officially rendered its report on the incident. After examining the crew, witnesses on the ground, passengers, and the incident scene itself, they concluded the crew was not at fault for the accident. The ICC official accident cause was listed as malicious tampering, by person or persons unknown, who had deliberately forced open the switch, changed its direction, and extinguished the indicating lamp. From the transportation safety end of things, it was case closed.
Engine 557 and 503B were returned to service, as did the injured employees. Rail traffic was disrupted for several weeks until the line could be fixed. Today, perhaps the last survivor is Engine 557, still operating in Hanska, Minnesota as Farmers Co-Op of Hanska No. 124.
Conclusion and Questions
In 2023 it seems highly unlikely that the September 15, 1958 derailment will ever be solved. No one died, and the newspaper headlines of the day were occupied with the tragic Newark Bay bridge accident on the Central Railroad of New Jersey that killed 48, so it quietly slipped from memory. However, that does leave us with some room to speculate on the cause.
- The ICC Got It Wrong: There was no deliberate sabotage. Railroad locks take a beating even without deliberate tampering and investigators followed a path that would absolve the company and its employees of fault for incorrectly positioning the switch. The investigation makes no remark on when the switch had last been legitimately used before the accident.
- The Peddler: A convenient target. Marginalized and possibly without a home, as he is also described as ‘dirty-faced’, it would be convenient to latch onto a sighting of him near the switch as an explanation. We’re given little motivation to why he might have tampered with the switch. However, after examining several cases like this, there often doesn’t seem to be much motivation amongst those apprehended. Children playing around, wanting to see the train wreck, without any more information its hard to say much more.
- Someone Else: Local children, teens, another resident. Someone wanted to see the train crash. Notably someone had to wield a heavy tool against the switch lock and lamp bolts, no Lockpicking Lawyer here, which would seem to point towards an adult.

I just received this in the mail a recently, from Proshop, i bought it as a new GPU no discounts for being a used product or anything, and the GPU inside looks completley new with the pastic on. But the packaging looks a bit rough, and like someone has patched it up. Could the packaging be an issue in case i find any problems with the GPU in the future? Anything i should report to Proshop just to be clear? And what does the red dot sticker mean?

“Listen I know you are trying hard. But rules are rules” Kay said. “See you tomorrow” and as she walked up the stairs she added “and I hope that is the last I hear you question the rules” After I was done my chores I headed up to the guest room and jerked off all night to the sounds of them fucking.
For the next two weeks we followed the same pattern. Jason would come over Friday night I would make dinner while they caught up. Then after we would hang out in the living room for a while. Though they never started anything downstairs anymore. At pretty much 10pm on the dot he would tell Kay to meet him upstairs after she checked on my chores. And every night she would find something. A glass out of place, a plate put away dirty or even one time I didn’t push the chairs in correctly at the dining room table. She would explain that I hadn’t finished all my chores so I would not be allowed to join them in the bedroom. I would sulk for a bit then finish my chore and go upstairs to the guest room by myself.
During the week when Jason wasn’t here also got into a pattern. While things where somewhat normal during the day at night when Kay got horny (which was all the time recently) I would have to leave the room because I was still not allowed to she her naked. At first she will wake me up gently and ask me to leave for a few minutes so I would head to the guest room to lay down. Sometime I would return but most often I would just spend the rest of the night there. Soon through it changed to just a tap on the shoulder and I knew to leave to eventually all I needed was to hear the sound of her vibrator turning on and I would head out.
After one weekend as Jason was getting ready to leave he sat me down. “Listen you haven’t been pulling your weight with your chores.”
“Sorry sir. I am tryin…”
He cut me off. “I don’t care why. But it can’t continue. And there has to be consequences. So all this week I want your to wear panties instead of your own underwear. “ he hands me a bag of bright pink panties. “No excuses. I will know if you don’t were them. So go on put them on”
I nodded as I stood up and stripped down. As I pulled up the new pair of panties I noticed my little dick already getting hard. The felt so soft and nice I didnt think I was going to mind wearing them. Smack! “They look great on you sweetie” Kay said as she slapped my ass as she came back into the room.
This was so embarrassing. I almost cam right there.
“Thanks?” I said as I tried to quickly put the rest of my cloths back on.
“Now I’ll know if you try and cheat. You have to wear them all week understand?” Jason asked
“Yes sir” —————
And I did wear them all week. But it was only a five pack so when it got to be Friday I washed them all so I would have them all clean for when Jason came over for the weekend. As I was sitting on the couch folding Kay walked by and gave me a quick hug and we talked to a bit.
“Jason just sent a message he should be here soon”
“Ok I am done here. Let me clean this up” I took the clothes upstairs and got changed back into a pair of the panties. By the time I got back downstairs he was here and I walked into them making out on the couch. When I got close I saw Kay whisper something in his ear. And I saw his expression change.
“I left pretty clear instructions last week.”
“Yes sir. And I followed them”
“Listen I know you have a tiny dick, but I thought you were able to follow instructions. You were supposed to wear the panties all week. Jay when are you going to learn?”
“What do you mean? I wore them all week” I cried.
“Really. Kay tells me she noticed you had them all on the couch here about a hour ago. If they were all here that means you were not wearing them”
“But I was washing them…” I tried to say as I stared at Kay in shock. I thought she had my back. I did all this for her.
“No more excuses. Strip down to your panties right now and come here.” He said more sternly them I had heard before. I did as he said and walked over in just my pink panties. And by the time I got over to him I noticed I was hard.
“Oh my god! Your hard aren’t you?” Kay said. “Even with just the panties it’s difficult to tell since it’s so small. Hehe”
“Bend over” Jason commanded.
“Aaa what?” I couldn’t even finishing talked before he had me bent over with my ass in the air.
“I am in charge here. And you need to learn that”
Smack! He slapped my ass hard.
“Ouch!” I cried. “ but but sir…”
“Shut up! I told you to wear the panites for a week and you couldn’t do that. Now you will be spanked until I fill you have learned your lesson.”
Smack! Smack! Smack! “But I have si….” I tried to say. Smack! Smack! Smack! Each one hurt like hell and I tired but I could not hold back the tears. Smack! I started crying! “Please sir. I’ll do better” Smack! Smack! Now it was just crying hoping for it to end soon. My ass was on fire. Smack! Smack! Smack! Smack! Smack! Smack!
“Don’t disobey me again.”
All I could do was whimper out an ok. As I crawled onto the couch trying to stop the tears.
Jason took Kay by the hand and walked her upstairs. Soon as I began to calm down I heard the sounds of her screams of pleasure. And my before I knew it my tiny cock was rock hard. But I was too sore to jerk off.
I woke up the next morning still on the couch and still very sore. But I heard sounds coming from the kitchen. I walked in still just wearing my panties to see Kay and Jason making breakfast.
“Hello there.” Kay said. She was wearing just a silk robe that looked amazing on her. I could almost she through it. Almost see what I used to always see. But she was covered up just enough. She walked over and gave me a kiss on the cheek. “I am sorry you had to experience that” she said. “ but I think it’s important that you know your place. Don’t you?”
“Yes.” I said with my head down.
“That’s good to hear. Please clean this up and then get ready to go out” Kay said as she left the room with Jason.
“Oh and leave the panties on.”
The rest of the day they treated me pretty well. As long as I did what I was told we had a good time. Though while we were out it did look like I was a third wheel crashing a couple on their date but I didn’t mind. I was happy to be out with them. We got home late that night and as soon as we got in the house they started making their way right up the stairs. For a second l thought I would be invited to join them. But then I saw a mug I left out from the morning. So I started back down. “We’re are you going?” Kay asked
“I didn’t finish cleaning this morning. Sorry.”
“Oh wow. I missed that. Thank you for being honest.” She said as she walked down to give me a hug. “I first I just assumed your were just doing this to make me happy. But you really enjoy this don’t you?”
“I… I don’t know. It just feels right somehow.”
“Yes it does. It feels so right having Jason’s huge cock in me.” She moaned.
“Do you think I’ll ever..”
“Ever what?” She said as she rubbed her hand over my crotch. “How did I put up with you small dick for so long?”
“Ever…” I moaned as she rubbed. “ ever get to watch you two again?”
“Haha. I thought you were going to ask if you could fuck me again. You really have changed a lot. I like that you know your place and who my pussy belongs too.” She gave me a kiss on the head. And walked back upstairs leaving me with my hard on.
I should of just gone upstairs to jerk off right then. But instead I knew to had to finish cleaning.
——— The next morning I woke up to Jason In my room. I startled awake.
“Sorry sir. Didn’t realize I slept in.” I said as I rushed to get dressed.
“No need to apologize it’s early and I have to get an early start this morning. I am going away on business for the next two weeks so I won’t be coming over. I have a task for you”
“Yes sir. What do you need” oh wow Kay was right. I really have gotten comfortable in this role.
“In this bag is a dildo replica of my cock. And I want you to use it on your wife every night. And when you do use I want you to remind her that it’s my cock in her and you could never make her feel this way.”
“Yes sir… does this mean I will get to see my wife naked?” I asked cutting him off out of excitement.
“No.” He said. “You don’t get to ask for things. Ok? You’ll also find a blindfold in there. I expect you to use it! You and your small thing you call a penis don’t get to have any choices. You do what I say and you do what Kay says. Understand?”
“Yes sir.” I said as he left the room. As soon as he was gone I took the dildo out and stripped off my clothes. I started to lick it and I feverishly rubbed my cock and cam all over the sheets. I couldn’t believe what I was doing and how horny I was. …

2023.06.07 20:30 arrowbender Self-taught Composer needs advice on how to learn Music Notation and Engraving
Hello guys. I am a self taught composer who uses DAW to compose orchestral music. I am a complete noob when it comes to music notation and engraving.
I have lost a few opportunities with some clients, because even though they liked my music, they wanted me to provide sheet music, which I couldn't.
So I have decided to learn music notation. The goal is to convert my own music into notation, so that I can provide my clients with both music and sheet music.
Where do I start ? Kindly guide me to any resources that would help me. Also what would be a good notation software for me ?
Thanks in advance !!

2023.06.07 20:30 khoafraelich789 Used Car Guide: 1996-2010 Dodge Viper
| || | submitted by khoafraelich789 to CarInformationNews [link] [comments]
5 tips to find a first-class example of a secondhand Dodge Viper.
I’ve got a Dodge Viper problem. Despite their horrifying fuel consumption, restricted outward visibility, leg-singeing rocker panels, and an exhaust note like a hot-rod UPS truck, I’ve enjoyed driving two of these machines for the better part of 10 years and about 65,000 kilometres to date.
My first Viper was a 2000 GTS Coupe. My childhood dream car, we spent five years and about 45,000 kilometres together driving around town, going on road trips, lapping various tracks, and attending car shows and the like.
About four years ago I traded this unit in for a 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe. We’ve done about 20,000 kilometres together, partaking in a similar range of activities.
I’ve had zero mechanical problems associated with the driveline in either of my cars, and little more than the odd electronic hiccup resulting from a weak battery or wonky sensor. I’ve owned a lot of cars, and my two Vipers have been among the most reliable — second only to my 1993 Nissan 240SX.
The key success factor here is that I’ve had both units checked over fully by a qualified ‘Viper Tech’ in a dealer setting, on my dime, before purchase. In both cases, this pre-purchase checkup was worth the investment. For my first Viper, the inspection revealed thousands worth of upcoming repair- and replacement parts which helped me negotiate a much better deal; on my second car, it picked up a dead trunk-release button which the selling dealership fixed on their dime, and also confirmed that this car was in otherwise excellent shape.
To be clear: the best thing you can do before buying a used Dodge Viper is to make arrangements to have it seen by a Viper-trained technician in a dealer setting.
Still, after a decade of V-10 Mopar motoring, I’ve also come up with some additional tips to share with potential used Dodge Viper shoppers, especially those considering a vintage like mine — that is, the second- to fourth-generation cars.
Following these tips can help you enjoy a more trouble-free driving experience and avert potential headaches or surprises with your new toy.
I’ve found the door hinges in both of my Vipers to be quite fussy, and I’m not alone.
In my 2000 GTS, the doors seemed to sag with repeated use over time. The driver’s door hinge eventually needed to be readjusted multiple times to prevent the door from striking the body when closing. The out-of-alignment door hinge also caused damage to the weather seals around the door, resulting in a small water leak.
The hinge can be loosened, adjusted, and fastened back into place, but the process is frustrating and somewhat complicated if you’re not the most mechanically-inclined (like me). Professional help may be the best course of action if the Viper you’re considering seems to be suffering from saggy doors; it’s not a difficult job for someone who knows what they’re doing.
My 2008 Viper SRT-10 is exhibiting similar symptoms this year. The driver’s door has begun emitting a loud creak when opening fully (or closing), and lubrication of the hinge hasn’t helped. The door is rubbing somewhere, and the hinge needs to be readjusted.
Note that leaving this issue unchecked can cause collateral damage to the weather seals (pricey) and window glass (pricier), so you’ll want to address it as soon as you notice any warning signs.
These warnings include doors that seem to stick during some portion of their movement, doors that don’t close properly with a light push, doors that fail to engage the striker properly or even bounce back open, doors that require slamming to latch shut, or any used Viper whose door-mounted weather seals are cracked, ripped, or otherwise visibly damaged.
In sum: be sure the doors open, close and latch without undue force or noise, and that all weather seals are intact and in solid shape.
To prevent undue wrenching of the door hinge, I always start the engine after the doors are closed.
Firing up the Viper’s big V-10 twists the car back and forth (it’s all that torque), but can also wrench on the heavy doors and their small hinges, which seems to shift things out place in quick order. With the doors closed at engine startup, this excessive wrenching of the hinges is prevented.
Fun fact: during a tour of the Dodge Viper factory, one long-time Viper craftsman told me that the original hinge design was intended to be steel (stronger), though the engineers pushed for a lighter aluminum hinge (softer). In the day, he figured this might cause problems for some owners, and it turns out he was right.
“The fifth-generation cars use a different hinge, and the doors are much lighter, since they’re made from an aluminum film that’s shaped by air in a mould” he said.
Dodge Vipers have, I figure, a somewhat unfounded reputation for dodgy handling and being difficult to control. In my opinion, these problems are mainly driver-related (not car-related), but that’s a topic for a different story.
Of course, the Viper’s steam-roller tires do try and follow every nook, cranny, and tar-strip on the road, which means the car often seems to be squirming and shuffling even as you drive along in a straight line.
Still, don’t underestimate the difference that a proper wheel alignment can make. I recently had one performed in a dealer setting on my 2008 for the first time, and the difference in handling, stability, and response while steering and braking were notable — especially in terms of reduced workload at the wheel. It’s easy to assume ‘this is just how Vipers handle’, though a fresh alignment instantly made my 2008 feel more precise, more responsive, and less labor-intensive to drive on the highway.
In my case, the difference was night-and-day. As an added bonus, proper alignment means that the (very pricey) tires won’t wear as quickly.
The power windows on both of my Vipers were finicky and fussy. Compared to most cars, I found the power windows in both of my Vipers to feel and sound harsh when in use. They’ve also been the cause of various headaches, especially in my 2008.
This Viper has a feature called window indexing, a fancy way of saying that the window drops a half-inch or so when the door handle is pressed, allowing it to clear the body of the car and for the door to open and close more easily.
The indexing function on the passenger side window failed one day, meaning that opening the passenger door meant catching the upper ‘corner’ of the glass inside of the opening, contacting it and wearing down the finish. Closing the passenger door likewise resulted in contact of the window against the body in the same spot.
This can all result in wear to the vehicle’s paint, a noisier drive, and an increased likelihood of damaging the Viper’s finicky and sometimes-fragile power window hardware because of an unintended impact.
On your test drive, note that one, both, or none of the power windows may be suffering this problem, and that the problem may be sporadic in nature. I can’t offer a fix that’s worked reliably for me, though disconnecting and reconnecting the battery does typically fix the issue for a time.
On your test drive, confirm that both power windows work as expected, and be sure to carefully inspect the outer edge of the upper door opening above the window itself for signs of marking, paint damage, or scuffing that indicate contact.
Cooling system and overheating
Some owners have reported overheating of their Viper, especially in situations with high ambient temperatures, and during sustained periods of heavy-throttle driving, such as in a motorsports setting. Other owners have reported random engine overheating as a possibility from time to time, with a temperature gauge that may suddenly push towards the dangerous red zone on the coolant gauge randomly, and without warning. Many other owners have experienced no overheating issues from their Vipers.
Several factors may contribute to a Viper’s engine overheating, as well as inconsistent or seemingly random coolant-temperature fluctuations.
To protect yourself and avoid surprises, start with a pre-purchase inspection that includes the used Viper’s cooling system, including the coolant level and condition, an inspection of the water pump and surrounding area (for leaks), all hoses, the thermostat, the cooling fan(s) and associated wiring and relays, and the radiator itself.
Have a professional inspect both the engine oil and engine coolant for signs of cross-contamination, which could indicate a head-gasket problem.
On your test drive, take note of the coolant temperature gauge at various points. The needle should settle somewhere around the middle of the gauge and stay there, perhaps creeping up slightly over the halfway mark on hotter days. If the gauge suddenly climbs towards the red zone for no apparent reason, the vehicle you’re considering should be seen by a professional before you buy.
In this application, an overheating engine can be the result of a simple problem like an air bubble in the cooling system, or a serious one like a failing head gasket. You’ll want to know before you buy.
Run the Viper’s heater on your test-drive, too. If functioning properly, the heater will have no trouble pushing a lot of hot air into the Viper’s cabin once the engine is warmed up. If that’s not the case, or if the heat suddenly seems to disappear, have the system checked professionally. Some owners have successfully fixed problems by ‘burping’ air bubbles out of the cooling system. Ask a professional if you’re not sure how.
The Viper’s driveline is not a pinnacle of refinement, and certain noises and vibrations are more prominent than you may be used to. The question is which of these are normal, and which are cause for concern?
When checking out the user Viper you’re considering, quiet the cabin and listen for a few specific sounds in a few specific situations to prevent unwanted surprises.
First, place the vehicle in neutral with the engine running at idle and the clutch pedal pressed fully. Slowly release the clutch pedal, listening closely for any sign of a scraping, whirring, or grinding sound as the clutch is released. If you hear such a sound, press the clutch pedal in again to see if it goes away. The sound may seem to be coming through the floor near the driver’s feet. This sound can indicate a worn throw-out bearing, a part usually changed with the clutch.
I’ve noticed this sound on both of my Vipers. In both cases, it’s remedied by replacing the clutch, which includes a new bearing. You can drive your Viper while it’s making this noise, but if the bearing or associated hardware eventually fails, your clutch may become unusable.
You’ll also want to be on the lookout for unwanted sounds from the rear differential. The oil in this component needs to be changed regularly with a specific gear oil and a precise amount of friction-modifying additive. Using the wrong type or amount of gear oil or friction modifier can result in unfavourable consequences, including rear-axle noise. If your rear-axle oil isn’t serviced regularly by someone who knows what they’re doing, you’ll likely be hearing from your Viper’s rear end.
When driving a Viper, the differential sits just behind and beneath the driver. Though some whirring and light clunking from time to time is largely considered normal, any binding, whining, or heavy clunks — especially at low speed — can be signs of trouble.
These tips are designed to help test-driving shoppers more easily identify possible trouble areas reported by some owners. An attentive test-drive and shopping process that focuses on the areas above can help you find a first-class example of a secondhand 1996-2010 Dodge Viper.

2023.06.07 20:29 UndercoverDakkar Store specific Instagram or a general projects page?
I’m going to make an Instagram page in hopes of driving more traffic to my store. I’ve seen it recommended to not just post ads but have it be more personal to create a community of sorts.
For my situation I sell modded gameboys and handhelds and there’s a good community for that on Instagram to join. However to make my posts attract more people and to make it more personal I was considering sharing my other projects as well which would be diy electronics projects such as robotics, 3d printing, electric longboards etc. I figure the communities falls under the same category and overlap but obviously they’re gonna be different people mostly. Would this be a good move or would it make it harder to get buyers since it’s not as specific? As in would it be distracting and not help me in the algorithm?
