TLDR: submitted by Sea____Witch to NativePlantGardening [link] [comments]
What native plants can I use to as screeners to fill in this green strip? Year round fill. Southeast US.
Across the street from my primary yard is a thin strip of greenway. It is too narrow to build on and there is paved road on each side of it. The road wraps a hairpin curve around it. It’s currently covered in trash trees, some natives and lots of poison ivy.
I want to block the sound of the road noise from the other side. I want the coverage to be year round. Something that can be planted and forgotten. It would be really nice if I could get something that outcompetes all the nasty invasive, but I’m being realistic.
Thanks for any thoughts.
2023.05.30 23:03 ccharlie_mc Nerve damage
While I was having surgery I ended up getting pretty bad nerve damage in my right arm to the point where I couldn’t use it at all and my hand didn’t work. They done physio while in hospital and after around a month I ended up getting my function back in my hand and arm but it was very weak. I’ve now had the lvad coming up to a year and a half and I still can’t use my arm properly, they said it’s something that might never come back or if it does could take years, I struggle with temperatures, feeling and any exercise/lifting. I have been going to the gym and I cannot lift no where near what I could’ve, I can’t even lift 2.5kg dumbbell without it being in pain after a few reps and I am not sure if it should be something I should keep using for gym/other daily activities and it might get better or just leave it and risk not making it worse. What do people think?

2023.05.30 23:03 ShadyEye16 [WTB] 1x/2x/3x Prism Optic (Vortex, Primary Arms, or ??)
Looking for a red-dot alternative as I'm cursed with a wicked astigmatism, and haven't been able to find a red-dot that doesn't look fuzzy.
Hoping to spend around $100 for a used one (or new if someone's feelin' extra generous) with the mount. Open to a 1x, 2x, or even a 3x depending on what folks have to offer.
I looked at some Monstrums, but those don't seem to have a great rep to put on a "real" gun, plus the eye relief on those is poor from what I've been reading. Hoping to pick up a reputable-branded one that I can put on a 223 AR.
Thanks in advance!

2023.05.30 23:03 HercHuntsdirty My (24F) Girlfriend Ended 6 Year Relationship With Me (26M) - I Don’t Understand (Advice/Guidance Needed)
I (26M) was recently broken up with by my (24F) girlfriend of 6 years right after opening up to her about how I had been struggling a lot mentally recently. That's not necessarily the cause, but it happens to be a terrible coincidence.
Backstory to the unfortunate mental struggles:
About 10 weeks ago I had a very long night out and woke up extremely hungover. My brother met up with me that night in our parents car and ended up staying with us for a few drinks, so evidently he left the car.
Of course, I woke up and had a boatload of caffeine so I was already on edge a little bit. My brother was still asleep, so my mom asked me if I could quickly drive my dad to the car so he could take it home. No problem, I hopped in my car and drove there with my dad.
On the way home, completely unprovoked and no anxiety prior, I had an insane panic attack. I’ve never experienced anything like it before. I think I’ve only had one panic attack in my life, and for some reason it left me with a very small amount of social anxiety. During this attack, my hands and feet were completely numb and sweating. At first, I had literally no idea what was going on - I thought it was a legitimate health issue. I ended up taking a bit to drive home, but I made it.
Since then, I've just had heightened anxiety. I've had one other panic attack in the past and I eventually got over the lingering anxiety, so I knew it wasn't permanent.
Mental Health Backstory on her end:
To preface this, we both have anxiety/depression in our genetics unfortunately. In fact, her mom spent some time in the hospital when they were young because of how bad it got.
She also apparently had a ton of anxiety from work recently (she's a nurse, I'm in tech).
On my mothers side of the family, my mom, grandma and great grandma have struggled with anxiety their entire lives, some of them taking antidepressants.
Not fun genes for either of us to have, but we persevered!
This is what has been getting to me, our relationship was very healthy. We argued probably 2-3 times per year, we spent the majority of days together - as we lived only a 5 minute drive apart. We were both fully a part of each other's families. All of the normal relationship stuff, we were completely engulfed in it. We had also been looking at engagement rings for a bit and ALWAYS talked about our life together.
When I was about 19 before we were together, I used to drunkenly talk about her all of the time to my friends saying "if she ever gets out of the relationship with her boyfriend (at that time) she's the one I'm going for". When I was graduating high school, I went into her class on yearbook day, grabbed her yearbook and wrote my number in it. Long story short, she ended up single and within a month of that happening, we were together.
The "problems" we had over the years that were semi-recurring:
I didn't suggest enough of our plans. I explained to her a number of times that I'd happily go anywhere, I just don't tend to suggest ideas because sometimes she wanted to, other times she didn't. I've lived by the motto "happy wife, happy life" in that relationship, so I tended to go along with whatever she suggested.
We didn't take enough pictures together. I don't really like being in too many pictures and that bothered her.
We didn't travel together enough. This goes back to the anxiety, I hate flying and haven't done it in almost a decade. However, I have an appointment with my doctor in early July where I'm requesting some "emergencies only" anxiety medication to use for that exact scenario. Note - she went on a number of trips over the years with her closest friends. Furthermore, we had done weekend getaways via car together but those apparently don't count. To add, her friends are hopping on planes at least once per month to go somewhere, I think comparison became the thief of joy here.
I didn't tell her I loved her enough or hug her enough. This one is hard for me because I felt like I definitely told her I loved her a lot. She used to occasionally say "do you even love me", semi-joking but also serious, and I always told her of course I did and even though I may not say it a number of times a day, of course I do. I also did a TON of things for her to show how much I cared (ie. she very rarely had to make a lunch for work, I cooked for her almost every day and we don't even live together) The hugging thing is a bit different, as she's always been extremely affectionate and I never really have been. I truly think it comes down to how I was raised, affection just wasn't a huge part of my childhood. (note, that's not a problem for me or anything, I had incredible family/parents, it just wasn't as prominent as it was in her childhood)
I cared a lot about money and how we could set ourselves up to move out. She had taken 5 trips (two of them by train, three by plane) with her friends in the past year and after the 5th one I asked if she planned on slowing down so she could focus on tackling her student debt and so we could start saving to move out, have a wedding etc. Specifically, I wanted us to be in the position where we weren't renting a home, ESPECIALLY given how much money we were making combined. This part kind of confused me because she was the first one to suggest moving out, but when it came time to adjusting the lifestyle to prepare for it, she didn't like the idea. But, I did use it as a crutch for my anxiety to get out of things sometimes and I did open up to her about that. As an example though, I still went with her to the Gucci store and helped her pick out a very expensive purse to celebrate getting her first real nursing job after graduating. I don't feel that I cared about money (especially given the stage we were in in our lives) more than any of my buddies with girlfriends. I wanted us to be set up well for the coming stages of our lives; they were fast approaching. Furthermore, her friends are catching a plane every weekend and are living with their parents but pay cheque to pay cheque with no prospects of ever leaving unless it's renting
About 7-ish weeks ago, a few weeks after my panic attack, my girlfriend was very adamant that we needed to book a trip together. She said we hadn't been on a "real" trip during our relationship (by real, she means getting on a plane). We were sitting down in her bed on my laptop looking at destinations and flights, but I was incredibly anxious about the whole thing. As we were about to book, I broke down and was fully vulnerable to her for one of the first times in the 6 year relationship. I said that I just don't see myself getting onto a plane right now without some kind of medication to calm me down. On top of that, it would stress me out financially a bit, as I'm a full-time masters student and working full time. Plus, it was during my one-week semester break, so I honestly just wanted to relax.
From that day on, our relationship started going downhill. She said she felt extremely disappointed by the whole situation and she couldn't shake the feeling. We then started only hanging out maybe once per week and it was very bland when we did. A couple weeks after that incident, I slept over at her house and I could tell she was genuinely just not happy at that time.
Brief backstory - despite being 26, my mom still gives me a ton of flack if I sleep at her house. It was rare that I got away with it. But, I did it that night anyway because she always asked me to sleep over but I rarely wanted to have to deal with my mom. I thought it would help show her I'm really trying to get better. She also invited me over the following evening and I obviously went.
After that day, I don't think we saw each other for about 2 weeks. I texted her on a Friday evening and said I just don't feel like she wants to be with me anymore. She picked me up so we could talk, and explained that she felt very disappointed about how we were so close to booking the trip and ended up not doing it. She said she needed a break and I was fine with it, I understood where she was coming from.
During this time, I started seeing a therapist. I found one online who was one of the highest rated in my province and was also extremely experienced in marital/pre-marital counselling so I could tell her about the relationship issues I was having along with my anxiety.
Fast forward about 2 more weeks (last weekend) she texted me saying she was ready to talk and picked me up. She said it's probably best if we just end the relationship for the time being. She explained that she felt she had been disappointed a few times over the years and was bottling a lot of things up. She said she needed time to "find herself again" and didn't know if we would get back together at all in the future or not. Then, we sat there talking in her car for another 30 minutes like things were normal so it really threw me off.
I ended up texting her the next day and asked if I could pick her up because I was confused from the night prior since we talked so normally after the breakup conversation. We ended up talking again, sharing some tears and what not, but I kind of understood why she felt she needed to be alone for a bit, even though she didn't know if we would get back together or not. She said that people do this all of the time and sometimes they come back stronger, but if it was meant to be then we'll get back together. I also told her about how much help I'm getting and how I'm setting a goal to take a vacation when I finish my masters in November. She was noticeably happy and asked a lot about how I was talking to my therapist about improving as a person and a (what I thought was soon to be) fiancé. She asked for all of the details about what we talked about in regards to our relationship and was very happy that I was putting that much effort in.
A couple days ago is when she deleted are photos together, but it came right after she posted an Instagram story while out with a friend who has no stability whatsoever. This friend has been on and off with the same guy (who treats her terribly) for as long as we were together. Not to mention, she sleeps around a ton. I can't help but feel like some of this breakup is being influenced by her friends (specifically this one) wanting her to be single like they are out of jealousy or something. Or, they want her to be flying somewhere once a month with them with no plans for the future. My girlfriend has cried to me in the past because she had been brought to places she didn't want to be because her friend wanted to go for a guy. That friend has also been binge drinking several times weekly for years. The following night, her two friends posted a story of her incredibly drunk in the back of a car with her feet out of the window I'm sure in hopes that I would see it. We're grown ass adults, I can't help but feel like that's just not a cool thing to do to your friend in general? I don't care how drunk you are, in fact I expected her to have a night out with her friends and let loose but posting someone else like that is just insanely stupid to me! To put the icing on the cake, one of my long time buddies from high school decided to go for one of her friends and I gave him substantial warnings about her. Within a year, that relationship was completely over with and she was on to the next.
Neither of us were ever the type one to have one-night stands or get around, so I'm not concerned about anything like that during the breakup. If it happens it happens, but I won't be sleeping with anyone until I've put in all of my effort to saving everything we've built. She's only ever been with me and her ex, while I've had a handful more partners before her - but I've experienced enough in my 26 years to know that there was is only one woman for me.
After all of this, I still couldn't shake the feeling that I felt I was being abandoned during the one time in my entire life I've opened up to anyone and really wanted some support. I'm also just having a hard time processing why it happened and how I can salvage it.
I've texted her once per week since the breaks & breakup happened just telling her that I loved her and wished we were going to XYZ events coming up. I also always say in the message that "You don't have to respond or even read it, I just want you to know". I'm having a hard time deciding if I should continue giving her that weekly text or not, but I really do want her to know how much I care and thought we were a dream team.
I just can't help but feel like we had "problems" that were very fixable and were very minor compared to 99% of couples. Her two best friends have had 5+ boyfriends each in the time that we were together and countless one-night stands. Every time they would break up, I'd hear a story from my girlfriend about how terribly they were treated by these guys and we talked about how lucky we are to have each other. There was no forms of jealousy or self-consciousness between us either, neither of us were bothered when we went out alone with our respective friend groups. I also never for a second worried when she travelled with her friends that she'd cheat or something.
This wraps in with why I can't process the breakup. Aside from the few things we argued about here and there (few times a year) it was an incredibly healthy relationship. I had a great relationship with her friends (despite some of the things I've said about them above) and would often times opt to go out drinking with her group over my group of buddies. I acknowledged my shortcomings as a boyfriend (ie. the affection) with my therapist and she's giving me some help with it. Am I crazy for thinking 1. that I can fix what's happened and 2. Part of this breakup might just be her wanting to see how much I actually care?
Anyway, I might add to this if I remember more important points. I just needed to get some of this off my chest. If you've made it this far into my story, thanks for reading!
TL;DR - Our relationship was very healthy, we never argued, the breakup came essentially because I wasn’t ready to travel despite the fact that I’m actively getting help

2023.05.30 23:03 QFugp6IIyR6ZmoOh Should I always carry a second phone specifically for work?
I currently have one personal phone with no work-related accounts set up on it. I do not want to set up work accounts on my personal phone for 2 main reasons: * I would need to send my internet traffic through my employer's VPN. * My employer would have access to my phone, up to and including the ability to lock and wipe it remotely.
So far I have gone 3 years at this company without a second, work-specific phone. I get pages to my personal phone via SMS, and use my work laptop for all Slack, email, and video calls. I am occasionally level 3/4 on call, for which I am not expressly paid, but also rarely receive any pages.
I am interested to know whether others in the industry think that my current approach is ok, or if it is expected for DevOps engineers to always be reachable not only by phone, but also via Slack and email.
Thanks in advance for your perspectives!

2023.05.30 23:03 Emerging-vagabond Former Atheist’s turned pagan question for you.
Any former atheists here. I used to be a Christian and left for mainly scientific conflicts with theology. Been agnostic/ atheist for a few years. I’ve the last year, I’ve been wrestling with feeling called to polytheism, but not having any evidence for said belief.
I’ve had some encounters that make me feel like they could be divine but that still doesn’t feel like enough to take up a belief in gods.
Anyone have similar experiences? If so what made you accept polytheistic claims?

2023.05.30 23:03 Lost-Figure-7720 Want to get serious about quitting
I’ve been smoking regularly for 4 years now. Go through a pack in maybe 2-3 days (so I tell myself it’s not bad cuz there’s worse days lol). I’m also an avid pot smoke, so I just feel like a pile of tar at this point. I’ve come to be extremely lethargic and lazy. I’m also depressed which doesn’t mix well with this habit. Not sure why I’m sharing this, thought I could use some sort of accountability for myself. Leave a comment! Idk, I’m just so tired of this habit that doesn’t even give me the highs I used to feel from taking a drag.

2023.05.30 23:03 darknyght00 Some DIY Questions
I'm a software engineer by trade and my typical work setup is usually a closed laptop (because all tech jobs in the US are apparently always "on call" so portability is important) hooked up to my mechanical keyboard and a couple external monitors. I've been thinking lately how neat it would be to build a machine that's still usable on the go but gets rid of the stuff I don't use in a typical laptop (boring keyboards, webcam, trackpad). The 3d printed Framework case got me thinking about sandwiching the guts of the laptop under my own custom keyboard with maybe a little ~7" screen for info/terminal use in a sort of cyberdeck fashion.
- Anyone else use a SFF display on the EDP port? What'd you get and how well does it work? I think something ultrawide would look cool but it's proven difficult to search for
- For case design, I want to sandwich the battery between the keyboard and mainboard. I know this will present some thermal challenges- how can this be mitigated? (Also open to housing the battery behind the display if some sort of extension for that cable exists)
- The official printed mainboard case file is a split design (this is necessary because most 3d printers have print beds smaller than 250mm). Without accounting for the expansion cards since I'll only ever need usb C, I think I can get the main chassis to fit as a single piece but the wifi card will bump into that. Does a riser cable exist for this or do I need to just design around the extra length? I'm confident in my soldering abilities but I'd prefer to keep things as swappable as possible

2023.05.30 23:03 Overcast___ The infantalization, mockery, and people laughing in your face.
You'd think I'd eventually get used to it but every time it happens it just crushes me and I ruminate and stew in self-hatred for days, if not months(or years) if it's particularly bad.
The worst is when someone narrates what you just said or did to the other normal people around. Giggles "He said, x". "He did y". I literally say nothing and continue like I wasn't just mocked to my face. I sometimes feel like saying "I'm not fully ret*rded, you know. Your supposed to make fun of someone behind their back".

2023.05.30 23:03 IamEuphoric88 I went to Paris for a corporate and investor event about fighting Climate Change
Sorry for the English, I am Mediterranean
I went there as representative of my company. My job was selling our products to people hoping for investments or funding from venture capital or banks. I kinda liked it, I like doing it and negotiating with other people
Thanks to the event, I had the opportunity of analyzing in detail the demography of the people attending it
- There were only three type of people representing their companies at their stands; autistic male engineers, Indian engineers that casually became head of European companies in random places like Bratislava, and hot HR girls.
- Half of the companies present were interesting, the other half was demented and they were pitching absurd ideas or ESG brain monitoring stuff, hoping to receive investment from some shady NGO probably
- 90% European (obviously), 5% Indian and Asian, and 5% Africans. The last ones were divided in two different categories, the Africans from Ruanda and Nigeria presenting swarm tech drone technologies, and the Franco-Africans (?) cleaning the toilets
- 3/4 of the event was covered by companies and investors. The other 1/4 was covered by workshops and conferences. These workshops were exclusively stuffed by young female activists who spoke for three days straight about feminism and anti-racism (I heard everything because sadly my stand was in front of the theatre), while sharing their stage with a woman from the Clinton Foundation (!)
The irony that the uber-left activists were sharing the same event with ubercapitalists and Big Banks and Big Tech was completely lost to these young girls
- Ukrainians running around in faux military-fatigue, asking to everyone for tech that could be used on the battlefield. They were cool people.
- The entrance was covered by a giant globohomo sculpture, on it it was written "WELCOME, HEROES" or something like that, absolutely regarded. Double regardation, because directly in front of it, pointing in the direction of the regarded motto, there was a statue of General Joffre on horse, probably spinning in his tomb
Apart from all of that, Paris is still very cool. People are fit and hot and they smoke a lot, and I saw at least a dozen of giant rats and a pair of african drug smuggler

2023.05.30 23:03 imThe_great1 About the material productive forces
What to respond to this :
The essential concept of Marxian materialism is "the material productive forces of society." These forces are the driving power producing all historical facts and changes. In the social production of their subsistence, men enter into certain relations—production relations —which are necessary and independent of their will and correspond to the prevailing stage of development of the material productive forces. The totality of these production relations forms "the economic structure of society, the real basis upon which there arises a juridical and political superstructure and to which definite forms of social consciousness correspond." The mode of pro- duction of material life conditions the social, political, and spiritual (intellectual) life process in general (in each of its manifestations). It is not the consciousness (the ideas and thoughts) of men that determines their being (existence) but, on the contrary, their social being that determines their consciousness. At a certain stage of their development the material productive forces of society come into contradiction with the existing production relations, or, what is merely a juridical expression for them, with the property relations (the social system of property laws) within the frame of which they have hitherto operated. From having been forms of development of the productive forces these re- lations turn into fetters of them. Then comes an epoch of social revolution. With the change in the economic foundation the whole immense superstructure slowly or rapidly transforms * itself. In reviewing such a trans- formation,1 one must always distinguish between the material transformation* of the economic conditions of production, which can be precisely ascertained with the methods of the natural sciences, and the juridical, po- litical, religious, artistic,2 or philosophical, in short ide- ological, forms in which men become conscious (aware) of this conflict and fight it out. Such an epoch of trans- formation can no more be judged according to its own consciousness than an individual can be judged accord- ing to what he imagines himself to be; one must rather explain this consciousness out of the contradictions of the material life, out of the existing conflict between so- cial productive forces and production relations. No so- cial formation ever disappears before all the productive forces have been developed for which its frame is broad enough, and new, higher production relations never ap- pear before the material conditions of their existence have been hatched out in the womb of the old society.Hence mankind never sets itself tasks other than those it can solve, for closer observation will always discover that the task itself only emerges where the material con- ditions of its solution are already present or at least in the process of becoming.3 The most remarkable fact about this doctrine is that it does not provide a definition of its basic concept, ma- terial productive forces. Marx never told us what he had in mind in referring to the material productive forces. We have to deduce it from occasional historical exem- plifications of his doctrine. The most outspoken of these incidental examples is to be found in his book, The Pov- erty of Philosophy, published in 1847 in French. It reads: The hand mill gives you feudal society, the steam mill industrial capitalism.4 This means that the state of practical technological knowledge or the technological quality of the tools and machines used in production is to be considered the essential feature of the material productive forces, which uniquely determine the pro- duction relations and thereby the whole "superstruc- ture." The production technique is the real thing, the material being that ultimately determines the social, political, and intellectual manifestations of human life. This interpretation is fully confirmed by all other ex- amples provided by Marx and Engels and by the re- sponse every new technological advance roused in their minds. They welcomed it enthusiastically because theywere convinced that each such new invention brought them a step nearer the realization of their hopes, the coming of socialism.5 There have been, before Marx and after Marx, many historians and philosophers who emphasized the promi- nent role the improvement of technological methods of production has played in the history of civilization. A glance into the popular textbooks of history published in the last one hundred and fifty years shows that their authors duly stressed the importance of new inventions and of the changes they brought about. They never con- tested the truism that material well-being is the indis- pensable condition of a nation's moral, intellectual, and artistic achievement. But what Marx says is entirely different. In his doc- trine the tools and machines are the ultimate thing, a material thing, viz., the material productive forces. Everything else is the necessary superstructure of this material basis. This fundamental thesis is open to three irrefutable objections. First, a technological invention is not something ma- terial. It is the product of a mental process, of reason- ing and conceiving new ideas. The tools and machines may be called material, but the operation of the mind which created them is certainly spiritual. Marxian ma- terialism does not trace back "superstructural" and"ideological" phenomena to "material" roots. It explains these phenomena as caused by an essentially mental process, viz., invention. It assigns to this mental process, which it falsely labels an original, nature-given, mate- rial fact, the exclusive power to beget all other social and intellectual phenomena. But it does not attempt to explain how inventions come to pass. Second, mere invention and designing of technologi- cally new implements are not sufficient to produce them. What is required, in addition to technological knowledge and planning, is capital previously accumu- lated out of saving. Every step forward on the road to- ward technological improvement presupposes the re- quisite capital. The nations today called underdeveloped know what is needed to improve their backward ap- paratus of production. Plans for the construction of all the machines they want to acquire are ready or could be completed in a very short time. Only lack of capital holds them up. But saving and capital accumulation presuppose a social structure in which it is possible to save and to invest. The production relations are thus not the product of the material productive forces but, on the contrary, the indispensable condition of their coming into existence. Marx, of course, cannot help admitting that capital accumulation is "one of the most indispensable condi- tions for the evolution of industrial production." 6 Part of his most voluminous treatise, Das Kapital, providesa history—wholly distorted—of capital accumulation. But as soon as he comes to his doctrine of materialism, he forgets all he said about this subject. Then the tools and machines are created by spontaneous generation, as it were. Furthermore it must be remembered that the utiliza- tion of machines presupposes social cooperation under the division of labor. No machine can be constructed and put into use under conditions in which there is no division of labor at all or only a rudimentary stage of it. Division of labor means social cooperation, i.e., social bonds between men, society. How then is it possible to explain the existence of society by tracing it back to the material productive forces which themselves can only appear in the frame of a previously existing social nexus? Marx could not comprehend this problem. He accused Proudhon, who had described the use of ma- chines as a consequence of the division of labor, of ig- norance of history. It is a distortion of fact, he shouted, to start with the division of labor and to deal with ma- chines only later. For the machines are "a productive force," not a "social production relation," not an "eco- nomic category."7 Here we are faced with a stubborn dogmatism that does not shrink from any absurdity. We may summarize the Marxian doctrine in this way: In the beginning there are the "material productive forces," i.e., the technological equipment of human pro- ductive efforts, the tools and machines. No question concerning their origin is permitted; they are, that isall; we must assume that they are dropped from heaven. These material productive forces compel men to enter into definite production relations which are independ- ent of their wills. These production relations farther on determine society's juridical and political superstruc- ture as well as all religious, artistic, and philosophical ideas.

2023.05.30 23:02 BearsAtFairs For those of you who both sell prints and publish online, what is your workflow? How do you keep track of files and photo revisions?
When it comes to professional work, I've been doing small-ish gigs on the side, mostly events and portraiture for, for years and have a good workflow. But I've also amassed a very sizable personal portfolio in the 15+ years. I want to monetize this portfolio and plan to expand my print sales work in the coming months. I've dabbled with prints in the past, but have never attempted to put hundreds (or possibly thousands) of photos up for sale. This effort calls for setting up a new, efficient, and repeatable workflow.
I generally export at reduced resolution for online publication (social media, but also my site, other blogs, etc), but of course print needs much higher res files. Similarly, many of my exported photos get cropped to 16:9 or 4:5 for social media use. But those are not optimal for typical print sizes.
In the past 5 years, I've migrated virtually all my workflow to Lightroom CC. Ideally, I'd like to have
- a master file that drives the editing (light/color adjustments, retouching, masking, geometry, etc).
- several dependent files for different crops, depending on where I'd use these files, as well as settings for export resolution
- a way to batch export all dependent versions of all images to a single directory, and have the file name include media that the image is destined for (e.g. FileName_InstaStory, FileName_InstaPost, FileName_MySite, FileName_BlogName, FileName_8x10, etc).
I don't know if Lightroom CC's image version control is robust enough for this. So I'm really interested to hear what solutions you've all found to implement a workflow like the one I described. Or maybe if you've found better workflows.
Thanks in advance!

2023.05.30 23:02 TotallyNotGoodish HG Snaplocke form and details
I'm gonna start a HG snaplocke and I made a Google form where you can select 20 mons to ban from my snaplocke and the top 50% I will ban from my snaplocke. The mons are in pokedex order in case you're wondering. I've never used google forms before so sorry for the weird formatting. I selected all questions not required for the form but it didn't work when I tested it so sorry for that. I'm going to be completing up to the Johto champion so I only included mons accessible in Johto.
You can participate here: https://forms.gle/oZpQiScEw6GKZJ2WA
Thank you to anyone that participates, I look forward to giving updates on this run:)

2023.05.30 23:02 MeasurementSouth379 2021 LCD-X and MM-500
Thanks for the amazing work oratory1990
. I've been using a few of your profiles with great success. Is there a way to receive the serial number of the 2021 LCD-X you measured? Also, will there ever be a ADI-2 version of the Audeze MM-500 profile? Thanks again!

2023.05.30 23:02 ayyitsthekid 1 month into actually riding
Sooo I recently got a full suspension bike because all the trails near me were full of rock gardens so my trusty giant talon 3 had to go. This meant that I was upgrading from a 3x system to a 1x, using a dropper post for the first time and also upgrading to 29” from 27.5. I’m not in great shape but climbing on 29” wheels feels insanely good lol I’m starting to enjoy the climbs more than downhill. Another thing I’m learning is actually picking up speed going down, this is actually scary since most of the down hill is full of rocks but my bike is just cruising down. I tried to learn more based on YouTube videos and I’m also learning to lean back and focus on my front brake. This shit is terrifying going downhill. I just bought a chin guard add on to my helmet (an old bell super 2) and had to replace my sunglasses cause the Amazon ones I had the lens kept falling apart. I recently picked up some koo orion glasses that were on sale. I also have some knee pads and gloves. Anybody got some tips on building confidence going downhill? Should I get elbow pads as well? I’m 35 so eating dirt hurts now
Also for reference I bought a stump jumper alloy base
