u/kathog · 1 pointr/Parenting

I don't usually follow \r\parenting but my husband saw your post and suggested I respond. I can hear myself in you sometimes.

I can relate to where you're coming from. I have a daughter with Sensory Processing Disfunction. She. doesn't. stop. moving. EVER. and no. It's not normal 2 year old behavior. (I am so tired of hearing that.) She is so busy busy busy she was having trouble learning speech. She tested as a 15-18 mo when she was 24 mo. It also doesn't help that I'm an enabler. I gave her whatever she needed before she would have to ask. I also have some ongoing health issues that make me fatigued from time to time which makes parenting an active child a challenge.

There's a ton of good advice in the comments so far. I agree with you needing to work on you first. It's super important for you to get the help you need to be mentally capable to raise your son. Kids are hard. Even harder if you're struggling with health issues.

My advice is going to focus on your son since you've gotten so much advice for you. First I need to say, good for you for getting him involved in EI! That's a huge step. Now you need to make sure you're using them to their full potential. I'm going to base most of my assumptions that you're in the US. If not, some of the advice won't fit.

I sincerely hope that your son is getting Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy, maybe even Developmental Therapy for the social issues. It sounds like he definitely needs it. Because my daughter was so delayed in speech, they were able to give her Speech, OT and Developmental Therapy. I'm in the state of IL. I'm not sure if your state works the same way. They have helped her so much even in 6 short months.

We too are already talking about pre-school. That in and of itself is super scary. It's hard to acknowledge your baby is growing up! She's getting evaluated by the school district in June. Has your EI coordinator talked to you about when your testing will be? The school district will do their own set of tests and create a IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for him.

(One thing I just thought of... Make lists of questions so when you're talking to people like the OT or Speech or EI or docs, you've got something to refer to and don't have to try to remember. When you're not feeling yourself, it's especially hard to be on the ball.)


Routines have been a huge help for my daughter and I. I am naturally a person that needs to know what's coming next. I hate surprises (although I'm getting better about it as I get older). The biggest thing is nap time. For us, nap time actually starts about 30-45 min before I want to put her down. I try to do it at the same time every day. Because she is so physically active, I have to make sure we do some "heavy work" at least 45 min before I want to put her to sleep. For her it is typically jumping on her trampoline. She also has a small wagon I brought inside that I fill with bean bags for her to pull around. After the heavy work, she gets a 30 min TV show. Then diaper change and a book. We were having some trouble with her laying down after we switched to a toddler bed. We bought a clock that lights up. It took about 2 weeks of being super consistent (and listening to her screaming) but she now doesn't need it at nap time any more. We still have it set in the morning. Momma needs her sleep!

Heavy Work

Heavy work is super important for kids with sensory issues. I would think it would help any child that is overly active. They love that feeling of being pulled to the earth. My LO loves being smushed and squeezed. When I give her a hug, I make sure its extra squeezy. :)

We have one of those houses with 2 dining rooms (why are there 2? I have no idea). One of them has been turned into an indoor playground for my daughter. The winter was so brutal that I needed ways for LO to get out her energy. She's got a trampoline, balls, sit-in-spin, and rocking horse. If you have the space, maybe you could include some of these for your son.


For my LO, we started signing with her once we realized there was a problem after her initial testing. It was a couple of months before she started Speech Therapy through EI and we were trying to be pro-active. We found the TV show "Signing Time". I don't know what it is about this show, but for my daughter it seemed like it opened the floodgates. She was suddenly saying new words while she was doing the signs. It was a miracle for us. They have a few clips up on YouTube. We bought the DVD sets from their website but you can see if your local library has them or something like them.


For us, consistency is key. There are always tantrums when I try to implement anything new and sometimes they happen over things that we've been doing for ages. This is the part that goes with being 2. But at the same time, I feel like it's typically a little extreme. Mostly because she knows she should be able to tell me what she wants but can't. It's hard but you have to try to be strong. One thing to think about is if you want things to continue as they are. A week of tantrums to get him to sit at the table to eat like a normal child is worth it to me.

Good luck. Feel free to PM if you need any more advice. Just know that there are people here willing to help and support you.

u/bonersmoke · 5 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

Here ya go pimp dawg. I'll do my best to help ya out here.

Disclaimer: I still consider myself a newb. I've only grown 5 plants, but have never yielded lass than 2.15oz, using a cheap Chinese "135w" UFO. My largest was 3.7ish oz. The two strains were Nirvana Blue Mystic and Vision Northern Lights.

That being said, here is my advice.

And here is a puppy.

I've had 4 grows in a 5gal bucket rig, and my last one I upgraded to a tote. After overthinking/overengineering my first build, I realized I was wayyyy overthinking it. This whole idea is way simpler than people make it out to be. Then again I guess if you're not an engineer-ey type of person then things of this nature can be difficult for you. Sorry I'm like at a [7] now from my bucket grown Blue Mystic.
Anyways, here is the best advice I can offer you, newb to newb:

  1. I would definitely suggest using side/lower lighting in addition to your UFO. The plant's canopy quickly fills the circumference of the bucket and, as a result, blocks out light to the lower part of the plant. Some people don't worry about this, but I've found the lower/side lighting definitely plumped up buds that my UFO couldn't reach. They're not difficult to implement. Just get a set that plugs right into an A/C outlet. Drill a 1/4" hole in the side of your bucket, feed the wire through, hot glue the hole and you're done. I had two strands of LEDs. One mounted on the upper part of the main bucket, and one mounted on a spacer. I used these, and they're great: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KLUTB3A/

  2. I apologize but I cannot answer this question with personal experience. I did not install a carbon filter because I wasn't too worried about the smell. Yes your Northern Lights will smelly mighty dankly about 7ish weeks in, all the way to harvest time. From the reading that I've done, I don't believe those corsair fans will push enough air through a filter to effectively exhaust the bucket. The inline duct fan that you posted are what I see most people using. Maybe someone else can chime in here? I used A/C, speed adjustable fans so there was no wiring involved. These, specifically: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009P0R6VC/ They push more air than the Corsairs, but they're not exactly quiet whenever you have them turned all the way up to full cock. I guess I'm just mentioning these to show you they make fans you can plug directly into a socket, and they work fxkin great.

  3. See #2 answer.

  4. The white interior of your buckets will reflect light just fine, no mylar needed!

  5. I paid $3 per bucket at my local Home Improvement Labyrinth. Lids were separate, at $2 each, but you only need 1 to build your top. I doubt you will find lighting, fans and specific things cheaper locally, best bet is Amazon or FleaBay. But random odds and ends, for me, were cheaper at Target/Walmart/Lowes. Things such as: duct tape, hot glue, electrical tape, surge protector, foil tape, zip ties, yada yada yada.

  6. I didn't order directly from Nirvana, but I did grow their Blue Mystic strain. I've had such luck with this strain. I can't comment on Nirvana Northern Lights, but their Blue Mystic has been rock solid for me. These plants had bigger yields than my Vision Northern Lights plants. They were also easier to grow in my opinion.

  7. For my grows, I used this excellent guide. I only made small adjustments because I didn't have nearly the amount of nutrients that he has listed, but the actual step by step process works beautifully for me every time: https://www.reddit.com/r/Autoflowers/comments/20b591/a_simple_guide_to_growing_autoflowers_in_soil/?st=j4rrt7af&sh=59f28238
    My advice, specifally for spacebuckets, would be: The main thing to keep in mind is that you need to train your plant so that it's as short as possible, but not stunting it by burning it or overnuking it with light. This, for me, was learned by actually growing and observing. Pay attention to the plant and you will learn to see how environmental factors affect it. Such as, the plant will literlly grow to be the shape of the bucket that it's in. You'll learn how the leaves respond and grow with the light it's given. Do some googling for "LST" or "low stress training." This is a super easy method that I use to keep the plant as short as possible, and also to guide its growth to best utilize available space inside the bucket. It's like a super fast growing mahfuckin bonzai tree from the Karate Kid programs. Another method I use is to keep the main lighting as close to the plant as possible without giving too much light or heat.

  8. I would recommend a 2gal smart pot instead of the 1gal. Unless you want a really small plant, a 1gal might be a bit small. I've used 2 & 3. A 3 works, but in my opinion is a little large for the bucket, especially if you tack on side lighting. My first grow I used a 3gal, couldn't even get it out of the bucket so I had to water while in the bucket. It was a pain in my grundle, I much prefer to take the plant out of the bucket to water, trim, observe, etc. A 2gal pot is just about perfect.
    Here is some of my post history with summaries of my methods and ghetto grow journals. Maybe there's some tips you can pick up from those.


    Good luck homey
u/robotsongs · 2 pointsr/cigars

They're not that far between. And frankly, instead of the one you're pointing to, I would go for one of these instead(though there's no variety there, which seems to be what you're looking for...)

That $100 one you pointed to is kinda alright, but really, IMO the G2's and the Black pearls are really poor smokes. Like I couldn't finish the Pearls I've had and the G2 I smoked was finished only because it was going to be my last smoke for a week or two, so I wanted to savor every last moment. I definitely wouldn't go back.

If I was you, I would get a Bally 100-ct humidor or even this smaller Capri and then get a nice sampler from Famous-Smoke (who I find to have much better samplers) (or get one of CI's nicer samplers cheaper on cigarbid.com

Something like one of the Famous Smoke Best of Samplers. From that bunch, I think the Best of Dominican, the Best of Medium Bodied or the Best of Full Bodied selections are pretty damn great. (Also check out the Best of Camaroon or Best of Habano samplers... good stuff in there. However, I have been enjoying this 2010 Awards Sampler from cigar.com that has a wide selection of mild to full, small to big smokes. That might actually be a great starting place, though I really would recommend that, if you go with that one, you append it with a couple singles of Arturo Fuente Short Stories and a couple Padron 2000's in both natural and maduro.

Hope that helps. Typically, though, those humi+cigar deals are filled with house-brand filler smokes and it's not actually as good a deal as it seems. Your call.

u/RESOLlabs · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

How fun! Let me see...

  • $0-5 - Flux Capacitor sticker. Because everyone loves Back to the Future as much as me, right?

  • $5- 10 - This neat-o melting clock.

  • $10- 20 - This right here is where it is at. I was just going to post this but then noticed we do all four categories. Anyway, this is an awesome, fun, easy and safe marbling kit
    to create some really awesome pieces of art. Great for homemade cards or just a fun project, and it is also great for (almost) all ages!

  • $20- 50 - The Molecular Gastronomy Kit. If you are either a decent cook, or just beginning, this is an awesome way to experiment with food, and make your friends think you are some sort of subsistence wizard.
u/Eldridge33 · 3 pointsr/cigars

This is off the topic, but just as a side thought:

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to storing sticks, but if I may - as a new smoker too - Read over this. This was my experience.

" I've literally smoked a handful of cigars up to this point. All came from the local B&M and have been great. Super knowledgeable, helpful bunch of guys, that weren't rude to dude "wet behind the ears".

I enjoy the hobby, a lot.

I got a humidor, couldn't regulate it very well (50 count humi at $50, and only gave it 2 weeks), got frustrated with it, returned it and went the tuppedor route.

All seems really well with my tuppedor set up.

  1. Cigar Oasis Caliber IV Hygrometer
  2. 2 Cedar Trays
  3. 1 Sistema 1870 Klip It
  4. 2 Boveda 69% (60g)

    I let the tuppedor do its thing with only the trays, bovedas, and Hygrometer (no cigars) in it for a day - it settled at 72 degrees / 69 RH in no time. This is a set it and forget it solution. I love it!"


    As someone new to the hobby I would recommend saving yourself some time and frustration. I know you have already purchased the humidor and its on the way, but if at all possible, you may just consider the Tupperdor route. Switching how I stored my cigars freed my mind and allows me to focus on whats really important - researching good sticks and enjoying them. Two weeks was a long time for me to constantly think about and attempt to season my humidor. And i researched and cross referenced everything on line and at my local B&M. The owners (three dudes) at my local shop all highly recommended the tupperdor route. These are guys who have been smoking cigars longer than I have been alive (30+ yrs).

    The owner said this to me (paraphrasing):

    "It isn't about having a fancy storage case. Its about enjoying time spent with good people. If someone gives you sh*t about how you store your cigars, but either they don't know what they are talking about, or they are an a**hole and you shouldn't waste your time on em. I've been using tupperware for over 10 years, and I'll never go back. Now --- if the president came over, then I may spring for a fancy box!"


    Just a thought.

u/Droidaphone · 10 pointsr/shrimptank

The two biggest challenges with all-in-one setups for shrimp is light (not enough) and waterflow (too much.) Shrimp really require live plants to thrive, and those plants need enough light to grow. It's hard to judge from pictures, but that tank's light seems like it MIGHT be adequate for low light plants. Shrimp also require very low waterflow. High waterflow will blow them around (they're tiny and light swimmers compared to fish) and they will easily get sucked onto the intakes of most filters. The tank you linked would need some modifications to be suitable for shrimp: at the very least it will need sponges or pantyhose covering the inlet and outlets, and the flow will need to be turned down to the lowest setting, probably.

So, it might work. But if you're interested in shrimp specifically, you might as well spend a small amount extra and build a custom setup that is tailored to them. You'd need:

  • a 10 gal tank (10 gal is cheaper to buy than 5, it's not any more work, and barely any more space.) Check thrift store for this if budget is a concern. You don't NEED a hood, unless you have kids or cats or something.

  • A sponge filter , aquarium tubing, and an air pump. This is the preferred filter type for shrimp. While we're discussing filters, make sure you understand the nitrogen cycle, and the basics of cycling a tank.

  • An aquarium heater and a thermometer. Don't stinge here. Maintaining a stable temperature is key.

  • A nice light. Doesn't have to pricey. A desk lamp and a daylight CFL bulb works great, but LEDs like thisare not much, either.

    I think all of that will run you roughly $75, give or take. Obviously, more expensive than the all-in-one, but it would result in a tank that would be easier for a beginner to succeed with.

    You'll also need to get some non-equipment essentials, like subtrate for planting in, a test-kit for monitoring your water, and obviously food, and a petri dish for feeding is highly recommended.

    Then you can get into plants and stuff. Whew! Sounds like a lot, I guess. It is, but it's worth it, and shrimp are definitely a good place to jump into aquariums.

u/TacoGirlJones · 2 pointsr/sleeptrain

I don’t have any experience with this yet (LO is 6mo.), but I do have friends who have had great success with a light up clock for their toddler. They set it for the time that it’s okay for her to come out of her room/quiet time is over, and if she wakes up before then she plays with the stuffed animals in her room.

Good luck, and congrats on the addition to your family!

  1. Humans perplex me. By my silver scales, if it is not shootings, in an uncommon place... it's strangulation in a... what do you homo sapiens call that piece of literature... Ah, " Stepford like " community of an elderly woman, only for the executioner to be found, in his truck, dead by his own hands and bullet. Even more baffling? Taking plastic men modelled after a 'Controversial' Television show off the shelves of a toystore due to an mollycoddling child bearer. This whole thing is... monotonous at best. Why do you creatures let such things transpire? You cease to amaze me.

  2. I really. REALLY. REAAALLLYY want this book. I know it's not out yet, but if that is a problem I would love love love these book ends!

  4. That is fine, but as much as I would love the software... the book/bookends are wanted badly/kinda needed. X_X

u/JulioCesarSalad · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I'm actually ordering a second one for my mom right now.

So let's say you're crazy like me and want to wake up at 5 am every day. You set the alarm for 5 am and go to sleep with plenty of time. This is only for health issues, obviously, but even if you go to bed at like midnight or 1 am it will still wake you up. You'll just be super tired thrgouhout the day.

So you set the alarm for 5. At 4:30, when you're nice and comfy in bed asleep the light on the alarm clock will come on. It's dim and gentle at first, but over the next half hour it will be slowly getting brighter and brighter.

By the time 5 am rolls around you have already been exposed to light for 30 minutes. A gentle alarm comes on and beeps to wake you up, and you're up! It;s pretty easy.

I like to combine this with Sleep Cycle as it gives me the best of both worlds and I like to take a look at my sleeping cycles.

You can buy the basic form of the alarm clock here, it's $50.

u/Ask_Seek_Knock · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okay based on that I'm going to suggest a few things you could add to your wish list. I promise I won't be offended if you don't like them, but you might find something you're interested in. :)

Tea things:

First for cute tea things, I highly recommend the flowering tea pot I received it as an Arbitrary Day gift and it's awesome. The teas are delicious and most importantly, to me, the tea pot is sooo cute.

Mana Tea infuser a lot of people have this on their wish lists. I should add it to mine too.

Tea Sampler There are several samplers with different types of tea from this company and a bunch of others. You should look around for sure.

Hello Kitty Stuff:

Add on Hello Kitty alarm clock

This Hello Kitty toy It's adorable.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

SO. MANY. THINGS, haha. Half my wishlist is things for my house.

I'm just going to link a bunch of cool things real quick, just to give you an idea of whats out there and what you can get. And since you mentioned plungers...this ones first

Pirate skull plunger! It goes back and forth between being unavailable to available but it's a pretty nifty way to deck out an otherwise boring house item!

Melting Clock Is a hella sweet, very Alice in Wonderland-y!

An umbrella because everyone needs one of those, and this one just happens to have the bonus of looking like a samurai sword.

A scooby doo mystery machine salt and pepper shaker I actually own this one, it is so cool. Magnets connect the two parts together! (they actually have a bunch of different ones as well, not just scooby doo but Looney tunes, etc.)

Annnd speaking of loony tunes, they have baking pans shaped like characters that you can do all sorts of things with-bake, freeze, etc.

And as for me, the thing I'd like to stock my house with are these because who doesn't want gargoyle computer speakers? (particularly if you're like me, and are attempting to have a haunted mansion themed living room.)

u/puddle_stomper · 2 pointsr/Favors

One of these might be your best bet.

I'm pretty sure the song you posted is mostly in the key of B-flat major, and I think it has a couple very short key changes thrown in.

The typical music box has around 12-30 playable notes and plays from 6-8 bars of music (usually less than 30 seconds). The cheaper crank ones you can find at toy stores tend to be on the lower end of that range (12-18 notes).

If you were to make your own, you'd probably want to stick to the most recognizable melody from the song (probably the first 30 seconds since it's 8 bars) and skip any part with a key change. The notes you'll mostly be using are Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G, A. If you choose a short segment, someone else can probably transcribe/simplify it for you better than I would (try /r/transcribe). I could probably peck it out on the piano, but I don't have any way of making sheet music. (Note: I suggest transcribing it a full step up to the key of C-major).

If you choose to attempt to make a real music box and not one of those paper strip kinds, you'll need to find a comb (the part of the music box that has all the notes on it) and a spool (the part with all the raised bumps that triggers the notes on the comb) or just take one apart, as this website's tutorial suggests.

I suggested transcribing the song to the key of C because it is a common key for music boxes, so you could much more easily pick one up at a toy store. I can't think of any songs in B-flat off the top of my head, so I'm not sure it would be very easy to find a comb in B-flat. Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, When the Saints Go Marching In, and The Entertainer are all usually in C, and they're pretty easy to find.

How much time do you have for this? I don't have a lot of free time, but I might be able to help put together a template if you decide to go with one of the paper strip kinds.

u/615wonky · 3 pointsr/shrooms

Want to start by saying I'm definitely no shroom-growing genius yet. This is just my current setup, and a bleg for comments/ideas.

I'm just growing for myself. My brother died 1.5 years ago, and I've subsequently started microdosing shrooms, which turns out to be an absolutely fantastic antidepressant. So I'm more interested in "cheap, consistent, and reliable" than I am trying to churn out a kilo a week.

My setup is:

  • A 4-tier greenhouse

  • A Vicks cold humidifier on the bottom shelf

  • A water fountain mist maker on the top shelf, inside a random bowl from my cupboard

  • Two fans in the tent to help circulate air One is at top blowing down, the other is at bottom on the other side of the tent blowing up

  • A humidity controller (the humidifier and mister are plugged into it) to help keep humidity in the right zone

  • A Raspberry Pi 3 with Sense Hat so I can log temperature and humidity and log into it from work to check

  • The tent is sitting on an upside-down lid from the largest tote I could find at Lowes. This allows air circulation under the skirt of the greenhouse, and helps capture any water drips to ensure I don't get water elsewhere in the room.

  • Two plastic totes from Costco (sorry, can't find a link), with holes drilled in and filled with polyfill, similar to this.

  • A 20 W night light bulb on a 12 hour timer on the top shelf.

    According to the Raspberry Pi, the average temperature in the room is 62 F, with a bimodal distribution (my girlfriend loves AC...). It's 65 F when I'm here alone, and 60 F whenever she's here. Humidity varies between 65% and 75%, though I'm still working on it. It's rather hard to boost temperatures in that particular basement room.

    The shrooms are growing very slowly. They started pinning 3-ish weeks ago, and still don't look anything like the giant mushrooms I see posted here regularly. My "biggest yielding" tub currently looks like this. No giant shrooms, and rather sparse inside. Furthermore, a large percentage of the shrooms have been there long enough that the caps have turned black. The other tub has a few tiny pins but no growth yet.

    So what do I need to be doing differently in order to improve my growth/yield? And are those black cap shrooms still good? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Things I've already learned this round:

  • Paint the bottom of your totes black or cover them with tape to prevent light from getting in. My totes don't have many shrooms as-is, but right now 2/3's of them are "side-dicks" that are impossible to get to.

  • Regularly rotate totes between shelves, as well as rotating them around on the same shelf, to ensure reasonably equal amounts of sunlight and air.

  • Even with a humidifier and a mister, it's hard to keep humidity in the zone. Use a squeeze bottle to mist totes every day.
u/someshmo · 8 pointsr/malelivingspace

With the current setup, I'd consider moving that Aeon F. print (!) to the wall with your Kesey poster print. Awesome wall art, btw. I'd put a floating wood shelf on the TV wall, painted off-white to match your baseboards and that Hudson Bay Point blanket. I'd stick a small row of vintage paperbacks on it and a couple bookshelf speakers for the oncoming record player. Bluetooth to avoid the wires, if possible.


I'd put the turntable on a small stand on the right, below the art, utilizing that plug. Or I'd get a new console with clean lines that takes up most of the TV wall and can accommodate both.


I'd say you need a bigger rug, partly tucked under the sofa. Some sort of 'faded navy' seems right to me-- either flatwoven, or a distressed pattern like the current rug. That way you could connect with the beige walls of the unit (the faded), but tie in with the red and yellow of your art and the Hudson throw (navy).


The current format is home office one side, living area the other. Seems like you enjoy reading, and want to collect some records, but don't want to live in a home library. If that's the case, I'd consider media storage on the desk side. You could move the desk a bit and put a row of Kallax behind the sofa. This also would make a surface for reading lamps / plants / decor... or MacBook when sitting at the desk. But it means you're walking in to a wall of books and records.


The other option is to put it on the door wall. This would make the room divide less heavy. Provide an entry surface for keys and mail. And you could move the plants off the sill for easier blinds action. Side note- I'd consider a strip of [privacy film] (https://www.amazon.com/RABBITGOO-Privacy-Frosted-Adhesive-Bathroom/dp/B01MTA00AX/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_201_bs_t_1/143-0898377-8791034?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=5K4MXTX1QYKNSSPA8073) on the window bottoms. Either way, this would probably require a smaller desk and/or tweaking.


Other thoughts- I'd go white (or baseboard off-white) for the blackout curtains. A burnt yellow planter on the table. Paint the corkboard frame black. One thing- the coffee table looks very tall in the pics. Hairpin legs are pretty affordable on Amazon. Love that wooden tray in the bathroom.

u/RumpleAndBelle · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Decorate already! These books ends would look wonderful and go well with the decor you already brought in. I think that This little guy would look simply adorable keeping an eye on your computer desk. I love black cats and books so if you do too this trinket box might work out well. Could we request a GC? I am saving for a vaccum otherwise surprise me, I wish you the best of luck finding some things for your desk/office area.

u/Nezsa · 1 pointr/Aquariums

Hmm, I don't think I've ever encountered a substrate guide like that, but based on the plants and fish you want to stock, you'll have success with either aquasoil, or sand+RootTabs.

If you weren't looking for a dark sand I would suggest going to your local hardware store and picking up Pool filter sand, but unfortunately it's usually white.

I've heard great things from Black Diamond blasting sand, but I'm not sure if it's available in Canada.

If you go to any of the pet stores near you, you'll probably be able to find "CaribSea Super Naturals" sand, which works well and it pretty commonly available.

For soil, I used Fluval Aquasoil for my first heavily planted tank, and it worked well. It's a bit expensive, but since you're setting up such a small tank I don't think it'll be too bad. I'm guessing a 4.4lb bag will be enough, but please double check!

Thank you for replying! I was hoping the firmware would help with temperature issues, that's why I asked the question in the first place (to see if updates helped at all). I understand there are constraints with the form, soI'm not expecting anything even average. I was just hoping that I could run a bare minimum (at Surface pro 2 level) if I used these fans in a set up such as this. However, that example picture is an 80mm fan. However, can I ask a couple questions from your experience? How hot is the tablet when you're doing tasks such as youtube open on half of the screen, and say Onenote on the other half of the screen? Or perhaps even if you had four youtube windows open for about 5 minutes, how hot does it get? My primary options are between the i7 and the i5 256gb models, and I'm just trying to gauge how big of an issue heat really is. From both of the posts, it doesn't seem like everyday "power" use (multiple videos and programs open at once) really affects the tablet at all, only gaming and "high end" software.

How often is your SP3 "laggy?" The primary reason I shy away from portable electronics is because they've never offered me a solid, unstaggered experience (and this macbook is DEFINITELY no exception).

I understand it's not going to be as great as my desktop, but how often are you thinking "oh darnit, why is it loading so slowly?" My macbook has this problem maybe once or twice a week (rainbow wheel), but otherwise is fine (and my prior tablets always had these issues).

Thank you for replying, and thank you for your help!

I really appreciate your input!

I printed a shit ton of maps out on my own printer and taped them together. It was a nightmare but it worked.

If you don't mind spending the money tossing a grid on top of a map together on a single file and the heading to your local print shop is your best bet. I was fortunate enough to have an architect friend print out 2 maps in black/white for 2 of the encounters (also in LMOP).

TBH the best thing ever has been using a dry-erase map with a premade grid. Now I'm able to draw basic designs out on the fly.

The ones I got are HERE

Definitely a worthwhile investment and the printed texture keeps it from being a boring white dry-erase.

I'd love to describe it! Generally I use the same design as I've found it works best for what I've grown in the past (cannabis, tomato, basil, peas, bell pepper, lettuce) which is an adaptation of most "aero-bucket" designs. For mine it's very simple, food grade bucket (preferably black to limit algal growth, though I've never had issues with this before) and an inexpensive pond fogger. The pond fogger works awesome at vaporizing the water and I've found nutrient penetration to the roots is much more effective than a direct spray method. The fogger can be a little finnicky given it needs a semi exact water level to work well but if your bucket is sealed (food grade buckets use a great gasket for sealing) you'll be fine as the solution vapor will remain in the bucket with minimal losses. Ive also used a plastic pot upside-down to raise the fogger and allow me to fill more nutrient solution into the bucket. Links for my parts below!

Well, it does is a hard challenge for a beginner, but doing a properly carpeted nano-Aquascape (~20l <=> ~5g <=> ~2.0 × 10^-2 m^3) with DIY CO2 and a small sponge filter is doable in <150$

A quick, small suggestion:

Tank, ~13l <=> 3.4g, 40$

Soil, 20$

Light, 40$

stones, 25$

Filter, 10$,

1 pot Monte carlo or some other easy carpet plant at your lfs: 8€

We‘re left with 7$ for ~4 RCS, I guess.

I assumed you construct you DIY CO2 from an old bottle with sugar and yeast, so 0$ effetivly.

For cycling and food some free samples of fish food does the job. When food rots it emits ammonia, that could be used for cycling.

So here we go, every thing ready for a nice iwagumi-aquascape. If you do well, it might looks like this (That Tank has HC as carpet, but Monte carlo looks similar)!

Well, if you‘re willing to put up a dozens of hours on studying to to properly keep a planted tank.

edit: Wrong link for tank, this was the one I mistakenly linked to. Still a nice, small tank, tho. Also some additions for clearance.

The 7 Liter (236oz) (7.4qt) (42 cup) Sistema almost perfectly fits the 2 cedar trays that I got from Amazon. I was very pleased with it. The container goes by many names - I've literally seen it go by each of those unit of measures. Amazon has it for like $36 which is crazy. I had Walmart ship me one but they sent a 5 liter by accident and think the item listing is incorrect about the sizing. Sistemas have a rubber gasket on the lid and 4 flip lock things to keep the lid secure.

I ended up going with the Container Store. They are not in my area so I had to buy online and pay for the shipping. They go for $12.99


I've gotten two different cedar trays from Amazon and this is the one that is a great fit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B9234HE

I've also bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0733TYGWX/ but the fit wasn't as good (it is a little smaller).

The one with the good fit has 2x5 of those holes in the bottom while the one that was a little smaller has 2x3 holes.

I like these clear acrylic stands, the 12-inch version is a good size for all but the largest amiibo, which I just put on the top shelf. I purchased some from a more expensive brand, but later found these ones that seem to be pretty much identical: https://www.amazon.com/9-Inch-6-25-Inch-Acrylic-Combination-Life/dp/B014PXHVXQ/?th=1

They'd look good on any shelf IMO, but as the reviews state, they're a perfect complement for Ikea detolf or similar standing glass display cases and fill out the available vertical space in there amazingly well.

I'll tag team this one:

  1. That would work but they make specialized ones that work great


  2. Some sort of privacy film on the back so that it lets in light but hides what's behind the tank


  3. Epic.

  4. Up Aqua or GLA both make some reliable units

    Totally agree about fish preferring the jungle/more densely planted tanks.... You really see their colors and natural behavior come out a lot more. After seeing the latest IAPLC results I'm wondering if the "Brazilian style" scapes provide enough sense of security.

Thank you for your comments! You must be exhausted!
Sleep is actually my expertise and I hope to talk a lot about pediatric sleep in my blog.

Just to offer some suggestions, if your child is struggling with falling asleep there are a few options that you can try.

  1. Have you ever considered a pediatric sleep specialist? They can help you identify why your little one is struggling to fall asleep at night. If you wanted, I would be more than happy to talk to you about your local options. There can be a TON of reasons as to why little ones do not fall asleep at night, and they are easily fixed with the help of a specialist.
  2. As your kiddo gets older I would recommend an OK To Wake Clock. What we find is that children struggle with the concept of time. The OK to Wake light changes color to let them know that it's okay to get up and get Mommy in the morning. Here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/Mirari-Wake-Alarm-Clock-Night-Light/dp/B00EAHSBV4/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1551046787&sr=1-4&keywords=time+to+wake+up+clock+for+kids

    Hopefully these options can increase your sleep time!

The IKEA Detolf cabinet is really nice. Looks fantastic, and is very affordable, I believe its 60 bucks. Ive seen so also other collectors on this sub also use the detolf cabinet, and everyone ive talked to about it loves it as well. I also use some typical acrylic risers from Amazon. Makes it so each shelf can hold around 36 amiibo (4 shelves, 144 amiibo total).

He accepted it pretty easily because he loved the light up and little smile the clock did. We set it to show him what to look for and when the light went on we did a little dance saying ooooo he is smiling and dancing ready to wake up! My neighbor has a 2.5 yr old and just had a baby and she uses an okay to wake too but hers changes the color for when it is time to wake. My kid likes it dark so the Mirari works great for him since it only lights up when it is time to get up.

Then maybe it would be best to try to obscure the window rather than the balcony. There are lots of ways to do that.

My wife and I had a similar problem; she hated being exposed but I didn't want to lose the natural light. What we found worked was to apply something like this to the glass:


... which gave us privacy while preserving natural light. Because we wanted to have some ability to see out, we didn't cover the entire window with it, just the center portion. It makes a nice effect, and it's easy to see out but still nearly impossible to see anything inside.

Humidor + 10 cigars for $30 (This does not seem to be the same humidor, but I ordered one and I'll see just how different they are.) This one is much better quality than the first one!

This is my first humidor, and I was impressed by the quality when it arrived. I would have expected something of this quality to be too rich for my blood.

In following the advice of a reviewer, I'm currently calibrating the hygrometer with salt water in a bag, and I'll charge it up with a shot glass of water tonight!

Edit: And...my hygrometer is broken. It wasn't calibrated correctly, and the needle ceased to move (broke?) when I tried to adjust it. I've contacted the vendor to see if they'll send me a single hygrometer.

Edit2: I'm returning it to Amazon due to the broken hygrometer and buying the $30 + 10 cigars instead. Hopefully I have better luck with that one.

I live on the second floor of a building also with huge floor to ceiling windows that look into the public courtyard and across into neighbor apartments. I bought this stuff from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007RCX088

And used this tutorial: http://makingitfeellikehome.blogspot.com/2012/01/frosted-privacy-window.html
to create patters on my windows that let in all the light, and let me enough outside to make me happy without people being able to see inside very easily. The window film lets in a lot of light, but isn't see-thru at night (I've checked! Even standing right in front of the window with a light behind me, you can only see a vague outline, no details).

Hope you find your solution, good luck!

My amazon sword and anacharis loves it! Even my anubias attaches itself to the substrate even though it has a decor for itself. There's other substrate that has fertilizer for the plants but that's only an online purchase from Amazon.

I feel like it will help with keeping the tank healthy. When I changed out the substrate for another color I crashed my cycle. I asked Reddit and researched and finds out I killed a lot of good bacteria :/ But remember to get a siphon to clean it every week. I do about a 25% water change when I clean the substrate. For the plants, since I just have this substrate from petco, I add weekly or bi weekly leaf zone, also found at petco. It does what the fertilizer substrate would do.

This is the fertilizer substrate from Amazon:



u/kornberg · 3 pointsr/Dogtraining

I don't blame you, that is scary!

The good news is that 1) he probably didn't mean to bite you and 2) with the right techniques, you can take care of this problem before it gets 'stuck'.

By losing his shit when he sees something, your dog is basically telling you that he has no idea what to do in this situation and he's overwhelmed. The bite was not aggression towards you, it was a total lack of control over his emotions. Think of a young child flailing in the throes of a hysterical, out of control tantrum and knocking over a lamp in the process. Your dog was totally out of control and you were the lamp.

First order of business is to get him away from what's freaking him out. I just put [this] (http://www.amazon.com/Non-Adhesive-Frosted-Privacy-Window-Film-/dp/B007RCX088/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1420221216&sr=8-3&keywords=window+film) stuff on my back patio door because the dogs had actually knocked the door out of alignment trying to get to the squirrels and whatnot in the backyard. It's non adhesive, so it won't gum up your windows and you can take it off whenever. When a 7 year old peeled it off, I just re-wet the window and put it back on and it looks great. If it gets scraggly looking, it's pretty cheap so I will just replace it. It's been 2 months so far and if it was shredded tomorrow, it'd be worth the $30 every 2 months for the peace and quiet it brings. By preventing your dog from seeing other dogs outside, you're making it easier for your dog to overcome this issue. Every time he freaks out, the behavior of freaking out becomes more and more ingrained and harder to deal with.

Your next step is to teach your pup how to deal with his emotions when he encounters something that triggers an outburst. If you're not familiar with BAT techniques, I'd recommend finding a trainer or workshop in your area. [Here] (http://empoweredanimals.com/BAT-basics.pdf) is a good resource to understand the concept. If you've already been working on obedience with a clicker, [this] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpzvqN9JNUA) is a good technique. If you're unfamiliar, I'd start with a trainer and go from there. Clicker training is easy to do, but it's also easy to screw up. A good trainer will help you understand how your dog thinks, because their reasoning is not intuitive to a human. You'll have reasonable expectations set and an experienced person there to guide you when you need it.

Run the water in the sink while you poop - or even better, poop before you shower if you can, and just run the shower while pooping and then hop in when you're done. I also love Poo-Pourri for eradicating the olfactory evidence. They have manly scents as well. This is how it works.

When I lived in a similar situation, I reworked my shitting/showering schedule so that I pooped before the shower and ran the shower while I did so. That and the poo-pourri soothed my shit-shyness and upheld the illusion that my poop smells like cedar and lemons. XD

My giant pores are less obvious and my skin looks radiant and healthy. I also drink a shit-ton of water which probably helps?
u/jporegon · 1 pointr/ADHD

If you wake up before the sun is up consider buying a wake up light like this (it helps fool your brain into waking up naturally)
Go to bed at about the same time every night if you can- consider taking melatonin (especially if you are taking meds for ADHD). You can buy it at just about any grocery store. I have five kids, two with ADHD like me and the melatonin "knocks them out" safely in about 30 minutes. A good night's rest can be the key to waking up on time.
If you don't sleep well because your mind is racing about what you have to do the next day then write yourself a brief to-do list to remind you. Then tell your brain not to worry and get some rest. Consider meditation before bed as well to help you fall asleep.

Last, if worst comes to worst, find work that fits you - not the other way around. Some jobs can be very flexible about when you show up. Also, consider talking to your boss about your condition, see if you can offer something to compensate:
Boss, I have to accept that I am who I am and I'm probably going to be a little late sometimes. But, once I am here I will give 110% and stay late every day to balance out the time - if it is ok.

best of luck!

u/manatee1010 · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

It sounds like they’re partially attention seeking, and potentially partially thinking that your wife is “barking” at something outside the window.

I have two suggestions.

First, prevention. Specifically, opaque window film. If that doesn’t do enough to prevent the barking, a white noise machine on a low setting near the window might help as well.

Second, I recommend also desensitizing and teaching an alternate behavior. My recommendation is to get each dog a bed to keep in the room, and teach both dogs to go to their bed and wait quietly on cue. As part of that process, I’d recommend your wife have her phone out and pretend to talk on the phone while simultaneously dropping/tossing treats in the dogs’ beds. Building up a strong reinforcement history for quietly hanging out in their beds will be one of your best tools in breaking this habit.

My little girl started getting out of bed on her own. She kept getting up earlier and earlier, so I ordered this. I talked with her before about it and when we got it, she now loves it. We only need it to light up for when it’s okay to get up and leave her room. It’s not too bright so if she wants to sleep later, she can & it stays lit up. It doesn’t make any sound when it lights up either. It also has loads of other features, but we don’t need them quite yet. She loves it and comes downstairs in the mornings now saying how she can come down because her clock turned green. It’s a success in my house!

To clarify, the basswood box and the Kikkerland Music Box Kit come separately, I forgot to take some photos before I attached them. Sorry for the potential confusion!

Here's a timelapse video of drawing the box cover.

And here's a demonstration of the music box. Some notes are definitely off, but I'll fix them once I get more music strips.

If anyone's interested in making their own, you can buy the music box kit it here . Please note that it cannot play sharps or flat, and that you should transpose music to C-note before punching holes into the strip.

Music Box Composer by Jelly Biscuits will save you a lot of time (~$15 for the full version) since it allows you to print notes on strips and you can just punch the holes. I only experimented with the trial version to test some notes, so it's better to just check out the site.

u/rocketmonkeys · 17 pointsr/self

You've got a motion light; that's the first thing. If you can't replace that chain link, maybe you can get those wood slats that you insert into each column that give some tiny bit of privacy?

But I'm guessing privacy doesn't matter (that much) here. They jumped a fence to get in. They risked the light being on. They're bold. A block fence would be better, but other options are probably needed.

Another thing; get a shade, not blinds. Blinds have holes, people can see through (if they're close enough). Get something that is solid, blocks the whole thing. Shades are good (if they cover the whole thing, no gaps... mount them outside the window casing, making them wider. Home depot has cheap shades, I think $12 or something? Ikea has slightly nicer ones, maybe more like $30.

You can also go with window film: http://www.amazon.com/Non-Adhesive-Frosted-Privacy-Window-Film-/dp/B007RCX088/. That'll give light & privacy all the time, and if you do it right no gaps. You can easily remove later. I'd still use shades/curtain too. At night they can see light/shapes, but nothing else.

Another thing; motion-activated doorbell. You could use this: http://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-RCWL300A1006-Premium-Portable-Wireless/dp/B001CMLAZ4/ along with something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-RCA902N1004-Wireless-Motion-Detector/dp/B001G0MB4Q/. It'll ding (or beep, or chime, etc) whenever something trips the motion detector in back. Cover the LED on the motion detector, no need to give away its position. You can fairly easily hide the detector; it's a little bulky, but tuck it in a corner w/o lights.

Last; IP camera. Wired (ethernet + POE) is good. If you can't, then wireless. You'll still need power, but you can probably use an extension cord along with some cord holders (like http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/300/5b/5b68fca9-fb31-4ed6-a6c9-807b51a09a5c_300.jpg). You can also get power extension cables (for the tiny DC power to the camera). Distance may be a problem with those, have to try it out.

You can use motion detection on the camera itself to email you. Set the email to your phone's SMS / MMS email address, you'll get a text when it detects motion. Maybe even a pic (not sure if that'll work as an attachment).

You can get foscam; they're cheap, they work, they're not great. Others are better, but more expensive. Best I've found (for cheap & decent) is the discontinued Amovion C610 (http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Support-Onvif-WIFI-HD-720P-Network-1-0-Megapixel-Mini-Wifi-IR-Cube-IP-Camera/1906543251.html). Cheap, but takes a while to ship from China (plus, you're risking dealing with an unknown vendor). Most foscams & that amovision I linked to are indoor cams; rain & temps may kill it. Under an eave, it'll probably survive, but it's just not rated for outdoors. But with no other option, I'd go for it.

Where are you (roughly) located? How tight is your budget? If you had a cam, could you figure out how to set it up? Definitely let me know if you can.

I would like one of these, a Music Box Set that you can punch out your own songs for the music box! I think it would be amazing if my foster son could fall asleep to music his fosterdad made, instead of the music box we got him that only plays a song for about eight seconds before repeating. Plus, I can work with the kids to create songs as well that they can go home and show their parents!

  1. I think these dragon book ends and this memo board would brighten the place up a bit!

  2. And This would be great!

  3. Decorate already!

    Thanks for the contest :)

Decorate already! This lamp is pretty cool! And this could be a fun way to add a chalkboard and more dragons to your office :) And both of these bookend sets are pretty cool!

And I don't know if non-Amazon things are off limits, but I really liked this paperclip holder.

I used [this cling frosting film] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007RCX088/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) on my office windows lower halves. Works great, tons of light and you can't really see through it unless someone is very close to it. It would be a huge pain to install on curved glass, but on flat it is great, plus it peels off when you're ready to move if the next tenant likes being watched.

u/ReverendDizzle · 1 pointr/Parenting

There are a ton of them on Amazon, the most popular of which is the "OK to Wake!". It's $29, but for $10 more you can get an upgraded clock by the same company, the Teach Me Time which does all the stuff the OK to Wake! does but also has a real clock on it and will help your kid learn to read the time.

That said, I'm with /u/hadesarrow, a simple timer on a light or even one of those sunlight simulator alarm clocks would be a better investment. After all the cutesy kid alarm clock will be too babyish for them soon, but a real alarm clock with a sunrise simulator light (or plug for a lamp) will be useful forever.

I got it when it was about Au$65 and yes it definitively helps but isn’t perfect. I am planning on upgrading to a more expensive one but am glad I got a cheaper one first so that I don’t feel guilty dropping a couple hundred on a better one, my husband is planning on putting the cheaper one on his side of the bed when we get a better/brighter one.

Same question was posted a couple of months ago. I'd love to know too, but other than fan-made one-offs, they don't appear to exist. The best advice in the last thread consisted of an instructable for a music box, plus a link to the sheet music for the melody. Here's the thread, if you're interested.


Edit: Here's a DIY music box kit I've seen sold on ThinkGeek and also used in several YouTube instructables. You have to punch out the score and build your own box, but it is inexpensive.

u/ArizonaLad · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

If you want heat reflection AND daytime (only) privacy, a premium window tint installed on the inside of the window, such as Gila Film's Titanium line, would lower the heat entering the room by quite a bit, and obscure casual viewing of the homeowners. It does not obstruct the view at night, however.

For privacy after dark, without heat rejection, you would need a product like this:


Do do both jobs at the same time? Perhaps the Gila film on the inside, and the Best Home Fashion product on the exterior?

This could probably be answered best by calling the manufacturer, I suggest.

u/Sniperman · 1 pointr/cigars

they always say get the biggest humidor you can afford, that being said, amazon has some nice ones starting at around 30 bucks.

also cheaphumidors.com (reputable) has imperfect humidor sections, which has had great feedback. very small imperfections for a fairly good discount.

i got mine (presidente dos by CC) at ebay for 50 dollars. love it.

reason you should get the biggest one you can afford because,
1 youll buy more than you think you will having storage.
2 should not underfill or overfill, too many cigars and they wont breathe, too little and the environment wont be ideal, can fluctuate.

ps. toss the green stuff inside the humidifer, replace with beads (NOT getl) cheaphumidors again has them, also heartfeltindustries.

pps analog hygrometers are not very good, tend not to be accurate most of the time and prolly need constant adjusting. recommend getting humidor with a digital one or eventually buying one along the line avg cost 15-20usd

u/LikeADrearyImmortal · 1 pointr/Narcolepsy

I use this Phillips Wake-Up Light to help me get up and it's been great. The light starts gradually turning on half an hour before the alarm goes off at which point it is on full brightness. It is supposed to simulate waking up with the sun, and I think my mind does register it and begin waking up even if I'm not consciously aware of it. However, I have to remind myself to sleep facing the light for the last few hours before waking up (I'm often partially conscious throughout the night so I am able to remind myself, it's disruptive but helpful in this situation). Here's the link to the one I have, although there are other more sophisticated ones.

I bought one online about a year ago. It’s this little alien looking clock, very cute. Here’s the link. It had a nightlight, ok to wake light timer, nap timer. We have only used the okay to wake light when she was waking up wayyyyyy too early. She has since stopped that so we don’t used that anymore but she loves her clock. It’s funny. I’ll ask her what time it is and she’ll run upstairs and grab her clock and bring it down.

I'm sure you've heard about them but just in case, maybe trying alarm clock made to alert your child when it's okay to get out of bed? I hear they catch on pretty quick and just play in bed until the clock turns green... not that I have any personal experience because my son is still a baby .

u/roofuskit · 5 pointsr/Parenting

There are two things.

First, this clock might help https://www.amazon.com/OK-Wake-Alarm-Clock-Night-Light/dp/B00EAHSBV4 as she doesn't need to tell time to tell when it's OK to wake up. The clock optional though.

Second and most important, when she comes into your room during sleep time, you take her by the hand and without saying one word you walk her back to bed. Don't look at her and don't talk to her. If you do that consistently and warn her ahead of time that's how it will be, eventually she will stop coming into your room for attention she knows she won't get. Explain that she isn't to get out of bed except to go potty or when you wake her up (or her new clock lights up if you purchase that). It's vital that you are consistent with this new rule. Any inconsistency and it will be a failure.

My son came into our room every night for a short while. We tried this and it was huge success. But again, consistency is key. It also takes a bit of patience.

I have a half dozen or so boxes of tiles, as well as a bunch of the Paizo map packs. They're one of my primary map tools.

So first off, I got one of these collections of basic terrain mats. They work with the corresponding tileset really well. I use the mat as the base, then put tiles on top for detail. Anything that I don't have a mini or tile for I just draw onto the mat.

I usually set them up before the game, take a picture, then set them aside to quickly assemble when my players get to the location. If they already know whereabouts they're going, I'll leave it set up because it doesn't really give anything away like a basic town setup. I've learned the tiles pretty well at this point so I can quickly put stuff together at this point if they take a sudden left turn.

u/las_nubes · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You mentioned that you're bringing Advil - have you ever tried starting it a day or two before the action starts? I've seen that strategy mentioned in a few threads lately (though nothing I saved, apparently - sorry!) and can't wait to try it next month. Poo Pourri is also amazing. It definitely saved me from inexplicably rushing my boyfriend out of our hotel room once lol. That said... while I feel it's just polite to eliminate any unpleasantness my period could cause others, periods are just something that happens. If someone can't handle seeing a well-wrapped pad (honestly why are they looking that closely at the bathroom garbage anyway), they need a reality check.

u/krozarEQ · 0 pointsr/microgrowery

[This] (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sterilite-2-Shelf-Storage-Cabinet/8206250) is pretty close to your space requirements and won't look out of place. Although you'll have to push it in and out due to the narrow space. Easy to cut into as well. Get creative with stacking items around it to hide wires and vents. Low decibel 120 and 140mm computer fans work great for air flow from my understanding. Noctua and Corsair make reliable, quiet (22 - 25 dB), fans with good flow ([this one] (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608044) is kinda high end but you can often find twin pack Corsairs ~$24 USD)

If you want to avoid wiring the fans to a 12v DC adapter, you can try [one of these twin fan kits] (https://www.amazon.com/AC-Infinity-AI-120SCXD-Control-Cabinet/dp/B009P0R6VC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1467171922&sr=8-4&keywords=120mm+AC+fan) but they have a little higher noise.

I don't have personal experience with a stealth box but this is what I found some growers in your situation to be doing. In a box like that you'd want to switch your light cycle at 8 - 10 inches.

This one is my first and I love it. I have put a drymistat tube in and also a digital hygrometer. Stays around 68% humidity now. Just make sure to follow the directions with the humidor in seasoning it correctly and to calibrate your hygrometer. Simple salt with water in a bag (you can find specific instructions elsewhere) is good enough.

drymistat - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QCAGM0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

digital hygrometer - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000H6CZQE/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I realize those put it above 30 bucks... But you can get the digital hygrometer and drymistat later. Just calibrate your analog hygrometer and use either distilled water or some type of "cigar juice" in the humidifier disc and it should work fine. There are a few ways to keep the humidity levels right.

Sorry your going through this but with that said my daughter never slept more than a hour or two at a time until she was about 4 months old. Usually her pattern was sleep a hour then up a hour all during the day and then at night she sleep a hour from 9-10 and be up from 10pm-1am and then sleep 1am-3am and then start the up a hour and then sleep a hour. It was pure hell. Some babies just don't sleep well. Mine also wouldn't sleep unless held while I sat up or in a rock n play(id try one of these in your case it could Possibly help). she hated the bassinet and crib with a passion. Luckily I didn't have another child to deal with since she's my first and only. I also would go downstairs with her at night so the hubby could sleep and I'd sleep when he was done with work from 4pm-10pm because that was the only time I could get sleep! Also don't stress too much it will get better like I said 4 months was our turning point and by 10 months she was sleeping 7pm-7am without waking and still does at almost 2! I'd also work with the older child to stay in their room until at least 6am so you can all get sleep. They make special clocks that tell children when it's time to wake maybe get one for the older toddler!

u/gcThrizzle · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

Be careful when printing these maps to have the scale correct. If the map says 1 square = 5ft sq, then you want each square to be 1 inch on each side. This will make the maps "feel" the right size.I do this measuring in Gimp to be sure. /u/sanderdc also makes a great point about the squares being 10ft sq !

You can also just buy some gaming paper or a wet/dry erase battle mat and draw it out yourself. Sometimes, that's pretty fun, and you can draw new parts as you go. This simulates the "fog of war" effect. It also requires far less preparation because you're just live copying the map as you go.

u/mich1331 · 1 pointr/bettafish

To help, instead of putting a backdrop on the sides (which in some can increase reflection) maybe look at privacy window films which will minimize reflection more. Other than that I don't know what to suggest, good luck!

u/ezzy_bear · 2 pointsr/paludarium

They are kind of the same product but on a different scale. The reptifogger is essentially a large ultrasonic humidifier that will produce mist and greatly increase the humidity in your tank. The mist king system is a diaphragm pump that pushes water out of high pressure mister that creates more of a rain effect.

A small ultrasonic mister could be purchased instead and set just under the surface of the water in your tank to create the aesthetic fog you are looking for and save you a decent chunk of change. This is what I am going to use in mine to make fog on the water

I got this one before winter because I have the hardest time getting up in the dark as well. Its fairly basic it has brightness, 24 hour clock only I believe, alarm time, and one alarm sound. There are some higher end models with more features but this does the job. Only issue I've found is not being able to set alarms for individual days. So if you dont work on weekends or have different times you get up you'll have to manually change and/or shut it off.

Edit: But overall I would definitely recommend it or another model because it does make getting up more enjoyable and less startling.

Boy, that's rough.

In our house we hold the line on getting out of bed or TV at night. Night time is for sleeping, period, no exceptions. I suspect he's more likely to try to stay awake if he knows doing something fun is an option.

Another thing that helped us, and might help you with nighttime wakings, was figuring out that our daughter had a really hard time understanding when it was morning/OK for her to get up. We blacked out her room because the slightest hint of sunlight made it impossible for her to sleep (which was rough in the summer when it was still light at bedtime and got bright before she ought to be waking). I mean, total blackout - we covered her windows with tin foil and covered that with blackout curtains. Then we gave her a clock similar to this one that lights up green when it's OK for her to get up in the morning. Overnight it made a huge difference.

You could put on frosted window film like is used on bathroom windows. It's non-permanent and you could still have privacy and light. You could also stick bubble wrap up there instead.

I had really good experiences with a sunrise alarm clock. This specifically is the one I have, but I feel like it was a lot cheaper when I bought it, maybe only $60 at that point. Maybe I got it on sale.

Unfortunately, that alarm clock also wakes up my husband who doesn't need to get up for another hour, so I cannot use it now except on a really low setting. But when I lived alone, it was fantastic and I lived in Houghton, MI which is pretty damn far north (at least for North America) so the days were very short.

Also, I got a lot of daylight bulbs and used them in everything save the lamp I used at night. This also helped me stay more active.

u/SwampRabbit · 9 pointsr/Parenting

We gave my son one when he was about 2.5 years old. We used this one, and it worked very well for him. If we heard him get out of bed early in the morning, we could just yell (from our bed) "Is it green time?" and he would jump back in the bed. He also enjoyed the night light and silly-face features. Around 4 years old we introduced the wake-up alarm as part of teaching him to get himself ready. He figured out the snooze button all by himself. :)

He's 5.5 now, and we recently switched him to this wake-up clock that shows the digital time and an analog clock face together to help him learn to tell time.

Neither are cheap, but they work well and will last a long time. We passed the first one along to a nephew and expect it will be passed around to a few more kids before it's done.

It gets so bright (you can adjust the settings on this) that distance does not matter. It also helps me wake up more gradually, so the sound of the alarm isn't so jarring. Another morning thing that has helped me is giving myself something to look forward to while I get ready -- like listening to my current audiobook. It is also nice to start the morning not feeling rushed or guilty about sleeping in. Remembering the positive feels it gives me has made a big difference!

Onaroo OK to Wake Alarm Clock and... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002RNKOM2?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

(I hope the link works, I’m on my phone) This is the one I bought. I love it! I originally bought it just because it was one of the cheaper options. It has a thing in the back that you have to open up to set the awake, alarm and time and once it’s closed there’s nothing my kid can touch on it that will mess with the settings. The buttons on the front are just to turn the light on (which will shut off on its own) or to turn the awake light off. It even has a setting for nap times but I’ve never used it. My kid loves it too, when we go away he asks me to bring it.

Thanks! These guys as recommended on this sub. The 12 inch fits the Detolf shelf perfect.

u/TroubledViking · 1 pointr/DnD

I use the Pathfinder Play-Mats, just the generic brown mat worked fine for me and it's wet/dry/permanent erase too. They also have themed maps (forest, hills, ship, tavern, etc) if that interests you but the basic brown/grey mat works great. This one is probably the most versatile for ~$20.

u/AtreveteTeTe · 3 pointsr/sleeptrain

Our guy has always woken up early. We started using one of the Mirari OK to Wake lights around 14 months. The light turns on at a time you set. So you can at least try to explain that if the light isn't on yet, he should go back to sleep or play in his crib. It felt like when I came in must seem arbitrary to him otherwise because he would always wake up at a slightly different time. We set it for 6:45. All this said, he still tends to wake up early and wail after a while. I think we just have a baby that doesn't sleep that much. But we at least have something to stick to and it has helped. I walk right in after the little light has turned on so he builds that association. Amazon link here.

You can find little water-based foggers for a few bucks in many places.


That's just a simple Amazon search for "water mist". You put them in a little pot of water and plug them in and they use high-frequency sonic pulses to make fog. They aren't anywhere as efficient as "Halloween fog maker" type things but they do the job for small jobs.

edit: I have a little USB one my daughter bought me because she knows I like cute little gadgets. Perhaps I will try to get it set up and take a few photos this weekend. Don't hold me to it....

u/neurosurge · 6 pointsr/confusing_perspective

If you have enough room in your box, put a large plastic cup in the middle and put a small ultrasonic fog machine in it. Put that fogger on a timer to run about 20 seconds every couple hours or whatever. While you're at it, hook a small fan up to run around the same time to pull in some fresh air. An arduino nano is perfect for this.

u/rosie__ · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/AnonymousMaleZero · 10 pointsr/Parenting

This worked incredibly well for us and now he’s sleeping longer too. Mirari OK to Wake! Alarm Clock & Night-Light we’ve had 3 early wake ups (he had reasons) in 6 weeks so I call it a win.

u/amazingtaters · 2 pointsr/cigars

I've had 2 humidors (first one gave up the ghost to an empty glass dropped by a drunk person)

  • The Capri Glass Top. I actually really liked this humidor. Nothing super special mind you, but I did the job well enough.
  • Tabacalera Perdomo 20 Count. This guy was a bit cheaper, as my budget for replacement wasn't quite what I would have liked. Got it for a good price in a freefall deal on CigarBid. I've only had it a few weeks. So far no complaints really. It holds moisture well. Not as pretty as the capri, but such is life, right? For someone who feels like they're drowning in an ocean of tobacco at 20 cigars, it does just fine.
u/Shaggy158 · 3 pointsr/AmiiboCanada

The Detolf is pretty awesome, currently have 2 of them to manage most of the amiibo. I also use these acrylic stands to make it look even better! It brings up the price quite a bit (I have 7 stands so far) but I think it's worth it to really display the collection.

u/kay_bizzle · 2 pointsr/cigars

I just bought this one on Amazon, and am really happy with it. Something comparable would've cost me like $100 at my local smoke shop

u/historianLA · 1 pointr/DnD

I really like this map made for pathfinder. This pack has two-double sided maps (stone, grass, water, and dirt). I find it very versatile and works great with wet erase markers. They make other maps with basic buildings/rooms on them too!

u/JamesSch35 · 3 pointsr/cigars

For a humidor, I would get a Sistema Container and a couple of these trays. This setup has worked great for a number of people, myself included. It seals very well.

u/openshutter · 1 pointr/funkopop

Oh man, all sorts of possibilities! You could go with the tried and true method of stacking the Pop boxes themselves and using those. This post for example, you can see OP used them as tiered stands on the bookshelves. Probably cheapest option since the boxes come with the Pops, most of the time.

After that, you can try buying plastic/acrylic risers. Amazon and the container store have these available most of the time, Amazon having more sizing options. Most people use the clear acrylic ones with their detolf glass cases from ikea. But they’re definitely not limited to just those cases

After that you can try making your own out of foam board. The stuff is pretty cheap at Micheal’s or Walmart and with one sheet, I think you can make ~2 stands. This was the guide I followed. Didn’t use her exact measures, but more so as a template. I’ve got 2 two tiered stands I made from this method.
Hope this helps some!

u/rmill3r · 7 pointsr/cigars

Everyone's giving you advice about shrugging it off and going the tuppedor route, but I think the thing you're missing here is that you bought this thing and if it happened in transit then you should call them about getting a new one or at least a refund. I have this one and while its certainly nothing amazing, it's a humidor and its working just fine. I struggled with the rh at first because I simply didn't understand it but now it's fine and looks pretty classy....the only downside is that I discovered cbid, so now I have like 50 sticks coming in...for my "50"-count humidor....which is already filled with about 30.

u/Frostbitejo · 1 pointr/AmItheAsshole

Can I recommend you buy some "poo pourri" for the shared bathroom? You do a few sprays in the toilet before you poop and it honest to god stops the scene of poop (by forming an oil over the surface so the smell doesn't leak out). Give it a try and avoid the issue going forward.

u/Ecuagirl · 5 pointsr/amiibo

Deltof are used by many amiibo collectors. You're right about the best use of space though. Three tier racks help with that issue

Cap and Bat OOB Collection

u/eatmonster · 3 pointsr/Charcuterie

I was where you were about 2 years ago.


  1. I found a free refrigerator and spent around $90 to buy all of the stuff to build my own Frankencurebox. I suggest buying a Mist Maker Fogger instead of a humidifier (less money and less space) and I use a tiny ceramic heater instead of a dehumidifier which kicks on the refrigerator to cool and dehumidifier. I eventually plan on building my own dehumidifier. Only time I've had a problem was when I loaded my box and the meat was giving off more humidity that my dehumidification could handle.
  2. I would start with dry cured sausages. Most people here trust the Ruhlman recipes/books when starting. They are faster to finish and less money if you mess up. Go to a butcher and ask for pork or beef grind. It's the scraps they eventually turn into ground. A whole muscle cure like loma is going to take you 50+ days to finish. A dry cured sausage like pepperoni is only going to take 15-20. Much faster cycles to practice and test.
  3. Nitrites/Nitrates are necessary and not dangerous if used properly. The big Nitrates scare of the 1980s was caused by a bacon shortage. Bacon producers over nitrated to speed up bacon production. Nitrates cooked at high temperatures release carcinogens. So because bacon producers were using too much nitrate to cure, there was some left over when the bacon was cooked which released carcinogens.

> So I should only be using the light you recommended and natural light?

The reptisun 5.0 will take care of the UVb requirements.
The next element is heat and light.

They need to self regualte their temps

So I use a old fashioned incandescent light bulb A19 these put out a good deal of dafe visible light, no UV and heat as a gentile warming gradient.

Of course natural sunlight is the best.
But since you are up there in the NE and it's going to be COLD and dark you can't provide that to it for a few months.

So... you can get a few 100watt lights here that should take care of it. put that into a 10" reflective dome and you'll have both light and a nice heat gradient for it to move in and out of.


> The humidity lately has been dropping all the way down the zero so that's the only reason I've been misting with the spray bottle.

wow, well do what you can, I'm sure it's not zero inside the home. Usually someone cooking will raise the ambient humidity a few points.

If worse comes to worse you can have a bedroom with everything in it and keep that warmer and with higher humidity than the rest of the home.

The problem with spraying and such is that it can get into the eyes and cause problems (infections)
A little inexpensive fogger

re: screen cages
These are fine but I think the DYI cages are a little bit better sadly I think they're sold out of the 18x18x36 sizes. The 2x2x4 sizes are overkill.

If you're not already, try and keep good sleep hygiene.
I also use one of these illuminating alarm clocks and it has helped me improve wakefulness.
The last thing I'll say is that I wouldn't assume working EM doesn't necessitate switching sleep cycles (except in residency which is probably the case with most residencies). If you're willing to go out of major metros, you can probably get good terms on your contract and work how you want to work.

u/OverlySexualCellist · 1 pointr/DnD

Does it need to be a board/inflexible? I use these and am also planning to get this when funds allow it. They're great because they're portable and work with dry and wet erase pens (chessex mat is only wet erase I believe).

u/Dropped_YourPocket · 2 pointsr/SquaredCircle

Nothing special but they work great. They ship with a protective covering so they don’t scratch during shipment.


u/iliketoeatwatermelon · 8 pointsr/funkopop

Thanks! The risers are these ones from Amazon, and the cabinet is in front of a window so it's actually just natural light coming through.

u/Ryngard · 1 pointr/DnD

I've not found much luck... we learned that lesson too so no red pens. :)

I changed to the flipmat... it was SteelSquire when I got them oh... 12 years ago?... but I think it's Paizo now. They have multiple sizes, they are double sided (hex and squares) and fold to the side of a sheet of paper. You can use dry erase, wet erase, or permanent marker and it all cleans up.

Yeah here is an example. Its 24" x 30" for $15 and you can get ones MUCH larger. And they now have terrain ones and buildings and shit. It's neat.


(Paizo has a BUNCh but I'm not finding the larger one... I KNOW it used to exist but I guess not anymore unless I just can't find it. We've been using the 24"x30" for a year now and I've never had any issues (I have two so I can easily plunk another up there.)

Well I have a bit of experience woodworking, so making the box wasn't particularly hard. The actual music box contraption I bought off of Amazon, Here's the link

Then its just a matter of hole-punching the sheet music onto the paper they give you (the sheet music I actually hand transcribed myself, but you can find some other ones that are similar online) and screwing it into place inside the box. Pretty simple, really!

u/asthepenguinflies · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

I have this same box, and pump, and let me tell you: get a dual fan setup for airflow. Mine conked out the first time I used it because it overheated. I then got this and used two of these to more effectively cover the holes I cut for the fans. Airflow is great, and the thing probably stays cooler than it would have sitting outside of the box.

My pump is set up to come out the front left of the box (because I plan to install a second pump solely for sanitary transfers) and the fans are positioned directly behind the pumps on the back, but the fans should work almost as well in your set up.

u/unmisunderestimated · 3 pointsr/AskMen

I gotchu fam. Amazon has a pretty solid selection of cheap acrylic risers.

u/Faciem_Perfectionis · 2 pointsr/cigars

So I've been lurking here for a while, and recently purchased this humidor. Two things I was wondering about:

  • In the thread about cigar sins, I saw several people dissing glass top humidors... Why?
  • When I first got it, I was able to get it to about 70% humidity with just distilled water. I kept a shot glass full of it as well as having some on the sponge. However, now that I've got a bunch of cigars in there, humidity can't seem to get over 60%. Even if I add water all the time. Could this be because the heat is on/it's drier in my place, or am I looking at a bad seal? Or would I be able to resolve this with a better sponge/using the humidor solution? Not really sure how to check for the cause.

    Any help would be appreciated.

It is this one!: https://www.amazon.com/Adorable-color-changing-night-light-children-families/dp/B002RNKOM2

You set it to a time (mine is at 6:15) and at that time it glows green for a half hour. At any other time, when you press one of the feet, it glows yellow (lasts about 20 mins or so, not on all night).

At night, I turn it on, remind my daughter that yellow means sleep, and we say night night to the “robot”. If she wakes before that time, I show her the yellow clock and say she needs to go back to bed till it is green. Works great!

u/klaaaaatu · 4 pointsr/AskMen

if you don't want him to hear you: cover the water with a thin layer of toilet paper. when you go to the bathroom it won't make any sound. with this method it will stink more because it's on top and not in the water

if you don't want him to smell it: use a toilet spray like this one or this one. works like a charm.

u/Vodka_fruit · 2 pointsr/Parenting

OK to Wake clock. The clock turns yellow when it's time for bed and then green when it's okay to get out of bed. Great for the early birds come weekend times. We use it to have kiddo stay in bed an extra hour or so on the weekends cause he can wake at 630am no problem. We started using it at 5 years old for school, so we also use the actual alarm. He gets up just fine with it and gets ready for school mostly on his own. I personally hated (and still hate) being woken up by my parents (by my SO) vs an alarm and SS is so much like me I figured the alarm might be the best option. I'll try and leave a a Amazon link, if not you can Google OK to Wake.


u/ethicalthrowaway2 · 2 pointsr/cigars

For a collection that size, do you maintain an inventory list? I only keep around 350-500 cigars on hand at a time, and keep a Google Spreadsheet that shows Name/Size/Quantity/Cost for each stick in my humidor. I find that this helps me figure out what I should be ordering without having to dig through the humidor. Around 3 times a year, I'll do a complete re-inventory to make sure I've tracked everything correctly.

I use a single large Sistema container which holds 18 cedar trays (these) stacked in 3 columns of 6. It holds 448 Toro-size (6x52) cigars.

u/Ozilline · 28 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

My suggestion doesn't help with your larger problem, but I hate thinking of you having to be in the dark all the time.

Have you thought of installing window film? I have this on a large window that faces my neighbor's house - it lets a lot of light in but still gives me privacy: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007RCX088

It's really easy to put up and it's non-adhesive so it won't damage the windows or leave any residue when you want to remove it. It also comes in patterns and stained-glass if you want something prettier.

During the day, your apartment will be dimmer than outside, so she won't be able to see in. At night I think at most she'd be able to see silhouettes, but you'd probably want your blinds closed at night anyway.
