What’s ok to buy used? by ony0urleft in parentsofmultiples

[–]mortalwombat- [score hidden]  (0 children)

You don’t know the history for sure, even with someone you really trust. The cost of a car seat is not that high when you consider it’s the most likely item to save your child’s life. Also, I think it’s illegal to sell them.

Parents of twins can be so generous! We have gotten involved in some local clubs and have been straight up given things. It’s awesome with some of the bigger items like the stroller, but the little stuff that we have been given really adds up, too.

Also, clothes. Just ask on Facebook if anyone has any newborn/toddler clothes they want to get rid of. Last time I did that I got three trash bags full!

Connecting moving Vehicles to a Long Range Wifi Network by AngryDutchBear in networking

This is what I was thinking. Use software like netmotion to broker the connection and trigger an offload script when it connects to WiFi at basecamp.

Non-Americans, what does America do right? by some_ordinary_name in AskReddit

Free water nearly stopped here in the West for a while because of the drought. You could request it, but it was no longer on the tables as a default. After a big winter, they started putting it out again though.

We have all bought into the lie that if we work hard enough we can make it big. The only reason we aren’t absolutely rich is because we don’t work hard enough. The irony in that is that the poorer you are, the harder you have to work. You don’t see Mark Zuckerberg working two jobs just to put food on the table.

That’s not the sole reason they exist. They were created because the rich were buying the most beautiful parts of the country. Roosevelt (I believe) wanted these areas to be available for all to enjoy, so he created the parks system.

Later on, our government smelled money and effed it up, but the parks system still has good intentions. But trump will surely fix that.

National Parks

Hold my beer. I got this - Trump, who is actively fucking our parks over.

Best practices when designing new IP address scheme? by encoad in networking

[–]mortalwombat- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So you could break it up with /18s or something per location.

Best practices when designing new IP address scheme? by encoad in networking

[–]mortalwombat- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lot of it is going to depend on your environment. Do you have multiple locations? Floors? How can you break them up into easy subnets? By easy, I mean you could easily explain them to someone with little technical knowledge. For example. 10.10.x.x is the main location, while 10.20.x.x is the secondary location. Or maybe those are floors.

Do you have a need to separate departments? 10.10.10.0/24 is management at the main location, 10.20.10.0/24 is management at your second location.

I also like to keep space between numbers. If management was to get a ton of devices (who knows that technology will bring) you can switch them to a /23 or you can add 10.10.15.0. In general, that gives you plenty of flexibility. Just put a lot of thought into making the end result as simple as possible.

Also, consider breaking things up so you can summarize routes and ACLs. As an example, I recently put together a 172.20.0.0 network. Everything 172.20.127.255 or below was very secure and everything 172.20.128.0 and above was less secure. I could then use 172.20.0.0/17 and 162.20.128.0/17 as summaries to make my rules much more simple.

I then put all the VLANs together in a simple to read Visio drawing that I could hand out to everyone involved so everyone knew what the plan was and was all on the same page.

I’m a little surprised you had to add those extra supports. I have a bit larger table I built with a 1x top and it’s really sturdy.

More to the point, stain the bottom of it next time. I know that nobody will see it, but building a habit of taking the extra care will teach you to always put your best into your work. I remember in wood shop in high school, the teacher showed us a video of Japanese woodworkers making a box that would be used for a tea ceremony. They put incredible effort into the detail of the inside and outside. Then they set it into the floor, where the outside of the box would never be seen. That has always stuck with me, how they care so much about every aspect of the piece, even if it won’t be seen. They are true craftsmen.

broadcast frame gets duplicated on all ports? by hordecore80 in ccna

[–]mortalwombat- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All ports on the same vlan. So imagine ports 1-12 are untagged on VLAN and 13-24 are untagged on VLAN 2. A broadcast on VLAN 1 will be sent out ports 1-12. This is why it’s called a broadcast domain.

Why retake ICND2 instead of take another one? Just less work?

How is it? Are you taking a class, and is it a lot of work? I’m going to have to do this one on my own since I’m already doing some Pali alto and Cisco classes this year

When and why did you last honk your horn? by scaredofcheese in AskReddit

Same. I had just bought my car and was on the way to get it registered. I was so passed that they nearly wrecked my car before I even got it registered.

Looking through this now. CCNA Wireless looks pretty good, but since we use Aruba wireless at my work, it may not be very pertinent. Maybe Cyber Ops would be more general and give me more useful info.

We use HP/Aruba. So I’m doing networking, just on different equipment. Same concepts, slightly different commands, no proprietary protocols. The protocols are what I worry about losing the most.

Preventing Pipe Freeze on 10-12' run underground? by theflyersrule in HomeImprovement

[–]mortalwombat- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It sounds like you can’t do much with what you’ve got. When the temperature drops really low, put your faucet on to where it’s just dripping. That will do wonders to keep your pipes from freezing

What is your, "I know it's sounds weird, but just try it" thing? by medallionsmonarchy in AskReddit

[–]mortalwombat- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Peanut butter, honey, banana, and raisin sandwich. I haven’t been able to convince many to try it, but if those who have there hasn’t been a single complaint.

If you're lost, is it better to look for your search party or wait? by Jackissocool in askscience

[–]mortalwombat- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like most people say, it’s generally best to find a good visible location to stay put and build a signal. Make a shape of rocks or tree branches that can be easily seen from the sky, or a fire or something to attempt at attention.

There are exceptions. Do people know where to look for you, or even to look for you at all? Always tell someone where you are going, when you expect to be home, and a way to contact you. Cell service is improving, even in many remote areas. If nobody is looking or if you have deviated drastically from the plan you gave someone, self rescue may be your best option. But obviously self rescue is best when you are experienced.

Take everything you have seen Bear Grylls do and throw it out the window. That guy is an idiot. If you are self rescuing, the worst thing you can do is run through the forest and try to scale down some sort of cliff, which he seems to do in every episode. That is just an incredible way to get hurt, which is a terrible way to stay alive.

TLDR; if you try to stay alive Bear Grylls style, you’re gonna have a bad time.

Yeah. This is kinda like when talking about seatbelt safety and there is always that one guy who brings up the example of someone who was saved because he was thrown from the vehicle whereas the person wearing their seatbelt died. Sure, there are exceptions, but in general, stay put, especially if people know where to look for you.

These exams seem to do more than test your knowledge by 0ut1awed in ccna

[–]mortalwombat- 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I don’t think that’s intentional, nor do I think it effectively accomplished that goal. I know some certified individuals who simply do not handle stress well. In critical situations I’ve had to literally look one in the eye and tell him to listen to me, then talk him down because he was panicking and making some horrible decisions. But that guy does great on tests.

I think the tricky wording is more about trying to make sure people know the information instead of just studying the test.

I thought this was a post about how stuffed animals are never where they belong. Much like your first picture, we have a place for ours that is always empty and surrounded by stuffed animals.
