I've been using reddit over 7yrs and I only learned this today so I imagine there's many of you out there that also don't know. In that 7yrs I've used the convinient "save" button on thousands and thousands of posts.

In the back of my mind I always assumed I'd export those posts at some point and categorise them. However I learned today that you can only see the last 1000 posts that you've saved - which for me might only be a couple weeks/months worth. Truly devastating.

If anyone knows of a solution I'd be forever in your debt.

I contacted customer service after a late delivery, and was offered a $5 gift card or a month of Prime free. Be polite, and make it clear how the late delivery negatively affected you.

The promo code is "country16" from 2016 and gives £50 pounds off the already very expensive £149 price tag bringing it down to £99. For whatever reason the organisation didn't bother to remove it.

The advanced driving course is similar to the sort of training received by emergency service personnel and some insurance companies recognise the certification and award discounted prices which is especially prevalent towards younger drivers who pay extortionate rates.

People who consume as few as 18 Ambien tablets over the course of an entire year are 3.6x as likely to die as others.

Also, Ambien works partly by causing ‘anterograde amnesia’ — it stops the brain from recording new memories. So you may wake up thinking you slept well only because you don’t know otherwise. Some people sleepwalk, sleep eat, or even sleep shop online while on ambien, but even if you don’t do these things you might be tossing and turning in bed but not able to remember it in the morning.

There are serious side effects of this drug and few proven benefits. You should know to avoid this drug. If you are on it and like it, you should reconsider. It might not be helping you as much as you think and it might kill you.

Acepromazine, or "Ace" as it's often referred to, is a very common pre-anesthetic drug often given to take home in tablet form for dogs that have storm anxiety or experience trauma with fireworks or grooming. Some vets prescribe it for aggressive animals to be given before appointments so they are more manageable by the veterinary staff.

This is an older drug, but it's still very prevalent in the veterinary field today, and is used per the discretion and preference of the DVM.

When used in combination with other drugs (such as diazepam, which is truly an anxiolytic, or ketamine, a catatonic anesthetic), it causes great relaxation and those drugs help make the animal mentally relaxed. In these situations it's totally humane, useful, and responsible.

When given by itself, the dog or cat is locked inside its own brain. Recent studies have monitored brain activity and revealed that dogs undergoing traumatic events on acepromazine were completely aware of their surroundings, including noises and being touched. They were still terrified, but their motor skills were reduced and therefore they visually seem to be relaxed.

This explains why people often see their pet's anxiety with storms get worse and worse over time; the dogs know when a storm is coming, and they know every time it happens that they're suddenly not in control of their bodies and can't do anything but lay there in horror. If it were me, I'd get more anxious and/or aggressive over time too!

Some vets have moved on to better, newer products to help ease anxiety, but there's still plenty of vets that use this as the gold standard.

If you have to medicate your pet for severe situational anxiety, check and make sure this isn't the drug you're using. It may make your pet relaxed, but they're suffering in silence on the inside. There are all sorts of new medications and solutions to help keep your pet calm, safe, and comforted.

Edit: as requested, my credentials are that I'm a board Registered Veterinary Technician with over 15 years of experience.

As far as a source, it's [newly] common knowledge in the veterinary field and new veterinarians and technicians are being taught this in school right out of the gate. Older vets or those who are really stubborn (and there are plenty of those) may not have stopped using it in their practice. I learned it at a continuing education conference. The link to the literature/sources from that study are at work and it's the weekend, but for those of you who are sticklers for verification I can dig up the details when I go back to work next week.

I found this one out the hard way when my local gym, which I never signed a contract with (just a cc authorization form) charged me for 8 months after I cancelled my membership.

You can find out more about what they are here and Privacy.com has a good one that you can turn on and off. Please though, for the love of everything holy, check your credit card statements every month. I wouldn't be faced with either eating a $700 or going to small claims court had I just took a look at my credit card bill every once in awhile.

You will make someone's day if you order two coffees and ask the barista to keep one coffee suspended for the next customer.

They will enjoy a free cup of coffee and they will have their faith in humanity restored!

Inmates who can't afford to hire an attorney probably can't afford to buy a suit for court, so many Public Defenders' offices have a small selection of clothes for clients to wear whatever fits. If nothing fits, then the client's family will have to buy an outfit- or possibly more than one if a trial lasts more than a day. Public Defenders are underpaid and their offices are grossly underfunded. Consider donating your old suits, dress shirts, ties, belts, dress shoes, etc. to your local Public Defender.

This month I noticed my AT&T bill was slightly higher than last month's, by about $5. I looked into it and it turned out they had changed my wireless plan, without my prior knowledge or consent, and had the nerve to charge me for it.

I spoke with a representative and they said that the company does this to "keep up with today's trends" of apps requiring more and more data usage, and to "protect their customers" from going over their data limit, which results in a network speed slowdown until the next billing cycle.

It'd be one thing if they did it for free, out of courtesy. But the fact that they're doing it behind customers' backs and charging for it is unacceptable and opens the door to other things like this (or worse) in the future.

If you're an AT&T customer, watch your bill closely from month to month and make sure it's consistent. If they try to pull this with you, you can tell them to switch it back and ask for a refund or credit for the difference on your next bill.

The idea of not eating oysters during months without an 'R' comes from the fact that the summer months are the prime breeding time for "red tides," or large blooms of algae that grow along the coast and have the tendency to spread toxins that can be absorbed by shellfish. It should be noted however, that farm shellfish are not a concern.

Hi,

thank you for replying to my text. I am very interested in getting your car but do you happen to have a report on the vehicle? Would like to make sure there have not been any serious issues with it. I do just feel safer about getting a vehicle with an official report because I've been shafted in the past. If you do not know where to buy this kind of report I can recommend you this site (insertscamsitehistoryreport.comhere). When I was selling my truck I used it and it works well. I hope this is not a big problem for you. Be sure to let me know if/when you get a report so I can check it out.

LED light bulbs have been on the market for some time now and while they can last a long time the individual LED's that compose the light slowly fade over time. This is called lumen degradation.

If you have light bulbs in your house that are approaching 5+ years old, it might be worth testing a new bulb in that fixture to ensure you are getting the light you want.

A Source one of many available on google.

An example would be the speed of a car is often simply 60kph. That means 60 "kilometers per hour". So in an hour a person would travel 60 kilometers at that velocity. The meter is the common unit of linear measurement used all over the world for a very long time now. So if you have a thousand of them all in a straight line then you have a kilometer. You see the "kilo" there means "one thousand" of something. So for a measure of mass the world uses a "gram" and a thousand of those is a kilogram. So now you know about linear measure and mass units also. There are only seven fundamental units for the metric system. Time is measured with the second. Electric current with the ampere or the "amp" for a short form. Temperature is measured in Kelvin but is often expressed for most human experiences with the offset Celsius scale. The Celsius scale is called a "derived unit" and it is really simple. Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius and water boils at 100 degrees Celsius. The size of the temperature unit is really just Kelvin and one degree change in Kelvin measurement is the same as one degree change in Celsius but humans in the world commonly use Celsius.

Link here: https://youtube.videodeck.net (wrong link fixed, thanks to /u/swatlord) Easy to use, just add your subscription (or custom playlists) as columns. You can sort them via drag and drop and change a bunch of view settings. Each column shows uploads chonologically and new uploads will show up automatically (push-behavior).

It's free (with a few ads you won't see since you are most likely using a ad blocker) and I have used it for years and never even have been on my sub page on YouTube since I watch everything from there. Since the repeated outrage over how YouTube manages how videos show up to their users, I hope this is of use to some of you.

Here is my horror experience with Cheap Fare Guru.

In February we bought 3 tickets from Cheap Fare Guru to travel internationally. The tickets were from Air Canada. The trip should have started on June 13 but Air Canada gave our seats to stand by "premium" customers and we were left behind. The plane left about 20 minutes ahead of scheduled time. Air Canada said that we need to call the place where we made the reservations. We called Cheap Fare Guru and told them the situation and they said they'll contact Air Canada and call us back but we should go home because there is no other flights that then can reserve for us. Of course they did not call us back. Had to call few times and stay few hours on hold until someone tried to help and told us that Air Canada will refund our tickets price minus $450 a ticket (almost half of the cost). We said that we don't agree so will dispute the charge with the credit card. We disputed the charge and and after about a month we settled with Air Canada and we got a refund. Now we thought that even if our vacation was ruined, at least we got some money back... but then we saw ANOTHER charge of the full ticket amount from Cheap Fare Guru. We called them, and they said that because we started a dispute with Air Canada they had to charge us again and... and the'll be nice and refund us MINUS $450. Of course... we had to start ANOTHER dispute with the credit card...

Now when I write this review is in the day we started the second dispute... I don't know yet what would happen, but take my advice and do not use them to buy tickets.

As a banker myself (Australian), Ive found this information critical to our work. If you have lodged something like a request for financial assistance, a payment defferal on a mortgage or an assessment of an insurance claim, it might be worth calling them to find out what happened or sending the request in writing. It's not uncommon for large databases to miss an address update or similar so it might be worth checking the details they have for you. You can always request the response in writing over the phone and they will often include a reason for rejection if you weren't successful. This can allow you to re-apply with supporting documentation, and can often get the request re-assessed and approved.
