To what extent do the trees protect you from the wind? Is there a certain MPH and/or wind direction that causes havoc?
I'd like to drive over and play a round or two here soon, but I don't want to drive all the way out there just to be grumpy and frustrated by the wind. I'm just looking to have fun and experience a fantastic course away from my own windy hellhole!

2023.03.31 18:26 lunarwarrior12 Forward facing…optics?? A NOP and Transformers crossover chapter 1

Memory transcript subject: Tailhitch autobot infantry
Date [standardized human time] September 27th 2136
I awoke with a start clutching my helm feeling like I had just been run over by slug. Looking around I at the very least knew I had to get my bearings and establish contact with the others. So of course I keyed my comms. “Optimus sir, bumblebee, prowl anybody there?” I was met with silence.
Nothing, scrap. This left me with a few possibilities, either my comms were broken, I was out of range which was unlikely or some other third thing. Well at the very least I needed to get moving so I transformed into my alt-mode, a 2010 ford ranger with one of those truck bed canopy things, whatever the humans call it, and started driving. Nothing looked familiar, not from the pictures on the the ground or space, or even from my own experiences. ohhh this is bad, this is really really bad thoughts were racing through my mind faster than they did in blurs mind.
After a while of driving I came across signs of life. However it wasn’t what I expected. Instead of the familiar human skyscrapers or more modest buildings of other shapes and sizes, I was seeing for lack of a better term “alien” skyscrapers, several of which were smoking and on fire. This prompted me to floor it and get there as soon as I could. Soon enough I was in the city limits and I came across a grisly scene. The bodies of what were clearly humans and some kind of reptilian species were scattered around some kind of intersection. I wasn’t able to dwell on that for too long as my audio receptors picked up the cries of someone in need of help.
Lo and behold there was a surviving lizard alien trying to drag away another alien that looked a lot like the Pokémon sandslash. My mind did some wonderful gymnastics as it decided the following lizards and humans= enemies, humans= friends, lizard is trying to hurt sandslash, therefore humans and sandslash= friends, must help sandslash.
As I transformed from vehicle mode to robot mode I loudly called out to the aliens “HEY THERE BUD WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’RE DOING!” I wasn’t quite ready to fight them yet, after all Optimus taught us the importance of diplomacy but I was definitely trying to scare the lizard. Standing up to my full height of 17 feet I towered over the clearly terrified sandslash and the definitely scared but not panicking lizard. Then I remembered what Kup taught us to do when meeting a new race. The universal greeting. So I cleared my vocal unit and spoke loudly and clearly.
“Bah weep grana weep nini bong” they just stared at me in confusion. fragging organics I thought to myself. Then the lizard spoke up and I guess my own translators managed to decipher what it was saying. And I went from calm and reasonable to understanding the rage grimlock and the other dinobots felt on a daily basis in only a couple of seconds.
“I’m taking this gojid back to be cattle for the axur dominion what the hell are-“ he never finished his sentence as after the word cattle left his mouth my right arm had turned into its blaster form and ended his life right there. Now Optimus and by extension the rest of the autobots heavily frowned upon even slightly harming organics. But I did not spend the first 17,000 years of my life as a slave on a mining asteroid before being freed by a skirmish of autobots and decepticons who were headed to earth to turn my back on someone being taken as a slave.
His body fell to the ground and the what are apparently called “gojids” scrambled away from the corpse. Panting it looked up at me as my blaster was replaced with my servo. And then it spoke as well confirming my suspicions about my translators. “Are…are you a predator? Are you going to eat me..?”
Oh Primus what had I gotten myself into?

2023.03.31 18:26 SonOfAHorker MacBook M1 frustration, advice/recommendations needed

Hi there,
I got myself an M1 MacBook Pro, which has spoiled me (performance- and quality-wise) - it has some quirks and I also have a few specific needs which make me want to go back to Windows, but compared to the Mac, every device seems to be subpar and have more downsides than I want to accept. Are there any viable alternatives or workarounds for me to get along with the Mac?
So I redesigned my HomeOffice over the past couple of months. In that process, I reorganized my devices: I had a simple but good tower PC for (rather rare) gaming, photo/video-editing and CNC projects; a generic Notebook from my employer for HomeOffice and an iPad Air 2 for private surfing. I went for the clean and kinda-minimalistic approach and got rid of all these devices. I am now doing everything with my new MacBook Pro M1 which works well so far overall. But I'm getting a little frustrated the more I use it. I mean, performance-wise this machine is a beast. Which is part of the frustration as I can't seem to find a viable alternative running Windows.
Some of the quirks I mentioned include the keyboard layout. In general, it's fine, I had a MacBook like 10 years ago and still know it well enough to get along with it. But for HomeOffice, I have to connect to a Windows machine via RDP. So there are these two layouts I have to keep in my head while working and switching to the MacOS when I'm researching something. Plus the Mac keyboard kinda behaves weird/differently when used on a Windows machine, as there are no Windows-/Alt GR keys, at least not where I'd expect them to be. This regularly results in some very confusing and frustrating sessions in search of a backspace or other special characters, which I usually end up googling and copy/pasting.
What also bothers me is that there are some things seemingly missing in MacOS, like an easy and intuitive way to snap windows to a side of the screen, or even a sound mixer for application specific volume. I know that there are third-party apps to provide this, but that's the point: I don't get why I have to depend on third-party developers to add some (in my eyes) basic and essential functions to such a highly modern OS. Especially if I have to pay for these basic little apps. And if there are free alternatives, I am still not fond in being dependent on a third-party developer, hoping they are updating their tools in time, in case there is a bigger MacOS update/upgrade coming.
And finally, I do have some quite specific needs which require me to run Windows in some way. First, I like to design 2D and 3D models for CNC and laser work. This is just a hobby but I like it and I cannot do it anymore at the moment. Secondly, gaming. I know, MacOS isn't known for a big gaming capabilities and honestly, when I thought about buying a MacBook, I actually pondered if I would ever feel the need to game again. I said "no", but I was wrong. I miss simply having the possibility to start an old game, even be it just for nostalgic reasons. I used to be a passionate gamer for about 20 years, so I should have known better...
For these two needs I already tried Parallels Desktop. The CNC/laser-program seems to run smoothly so far. I haven't loaded a project yet but I can start it. For my gaming needs though, it doesn't seem to cut it. I don't have very high requirements. I'd like to run some older games - like I said, for nostalgic reasons mostly, which are Gothic 1/2 and Guilds Wars Prophecies (so the original game, not GW2). I tried installing Guild Wars via the official setup and via Steam and in both cases it aborts after a few minutes with a critical error and just stops installing. Gothic 2 started but crashed after a few minutes with a DirectX-error of some sort.
I spent the last few days researching, comparing, watching and reading reviews and "laptop x vs. macbook" videos. And the conclusion just always seems to be, that no matter what I do, It's a bunch of compromises and downgrades, if I move away from the MacBook. I don't want to spend a(nother) fortune on the device, but I'm willing to spend about €1000. I looked at the Razer Book 13, which is my current favourite. But then I read about sudden hardware problems, bricking of the whole device, heat issues, yada yada...
So as said in the tl;dr, I am kinda spoiled by the MacBook. I guess I am looking for a device which has the power, the build quality and the styling of a MacBook, just running Windows with a Windows keyboard layout. This seems like an impossible task to me, as I either have to spend like €3-4k, or I'm getting a device which is a) far away from the power, performance and snappiness of the MacBook, or b) drains so much powebattery life that I will not enjoy taking it out of the office for watching an episode of The Office or browsing reddit, or c) lacks in build quality, features e.g. trackpad and keyboard quality, or looks like a plastic toy which makes me think I'll break it when I press the buttons too hard.
Do you have any advice to offer?

Fender Ultimate Chorus
So, in my last post I asked advice about getting an hx stomp to use as an amp or buy and actual amp, and the majority of answers convinced me about going the traditional amp route. I found this fender ultimate chorus in a store that's kinda near me, just a few hours drive, and I'm planning to go and test it with my drive pedals (Boss OS-2, RAT and a big muff). I read some reviews online and most of them said good things about this amp, and since I really use the amp as a clean platform, i think It can be a great option. What do you guys think?

2023.03.31 18:26 Edward_Stivenson How to Critique an Article

How to Critique an Article
What Is an Article Critique?
An article critique is an assignment that requires a student to critically read a research article and reflect upon it. The key task is to identify the strong and weak sides of the piece and assess how well the author interprets its sources. Simply put, a critique reflects upon the validity and effectiveness of the article's author's arguments in his or her work.
The key to success in writing this paper is critical thinking. The task of every research article author is to convince readers of the correctness of their viewpoint, even if it is skewed. Thus, the only ways to distinguish solid arguments from weak ones are to be a good researcher, have the right tools to pick out facts from fiction and possess solid critical thinking skills.
How to write a critique paper – In this guide, we will take you through the process of writing this type of work step by step. However, before we move on, it is worth noting that the main purpose of a good article critique is to bring up points that determine whether a reviewed article is either correct or incorrect — much like you would do while writing a persuasive essay. Although the purpose is similar, the structure of the article critique that we are going to address in this guide is slightly different from the standard 5-paragraph essay; however, both formats are suitable for convincing readers about the validity of your point of view.
How to Critique an Article: The Main Steps
This form of assignment is naturally challenging and rather confusing. It is no wonder why students may begin to feel overwhelmed with figuring out how to write an article critique.
To help you get your task done with ease, we have prepared a simple 3-step guide on how to summarize and critique an article:
Step 1: Reading the Article
First of all, to critique the article, you need to read it carefully. It is recommended to read the piece several times — until you fully understand the information presented for a better outcome. Next, you need to address the following questions:
1. Why is the article's author considered an expert in their field?
What makes a particular author's opinion sound valid? Does the author know about the topic? What do other field experts say about the author? Is the article's author covered in academic praise or not taken seriously?
2. What is the author's thesis/hypothesis?
What is the main message the author is trying to convey? Is this message clear? Or are there just plenty of general phrases without any specific details?
3. Who is the article's target audience?
Is the article geared toward a general audience? Or does it appeal to a specific group of people and use only understandable language for that audience?
4. Are the arguments presented valid?
Are the sources used by the author from all over the place? Does it seem like some sources are taken from areas that share a cult-like vocabulary?
5. What are the logical fallacies in the author's viewpoint?
Are there any logical blindspots? How much do they affect the outcome?
6. Is the conclusion clear and logical? Did the author arrive at a clear outcome in his or her work?
Step 2: Collecting Proof
The first step will help you read and understand the piece, look at it from a critical point of view, and reflect upon it. Now, when you have an idea about which way you should be heading in your critique paper, it is the time to start gathering evidence. Here are the main steps you should undertake:
1. Define Whether the Author Is Following Formal Logic One of the key things to look for when writing an article critique is the presence of any logical fallacies. Establishing that the author's general idea follows logic is not easy, but it is essential to coping with the task.
Often, undereducated people have some common logical fallacies. An example is to accept certain information based on the feelings and/or emotions it evokes rather than focusing on the supporting arguments.
Here is a list of some common examples of logical fallacies with brief explanations of each:
  • Ad hominem – when the author attacks someone expressing an opinion to discredit the other's point of view.
  • Slippery Slope – when the author claims that an action will always end up being the worst possible scenario.
  • Correlation vs. Causation – when the author concludes that actions 1 and 2 occurred one after the other, action two must be the effect of action 1. The problem with such a statement is that the author concludes the correlation between the two actions without looking deeper to see the real causes and effects.
  • Wishful thinking – when the author believes something that is not backed up by any proof. This issue typically occurs when someone thinks the information is true because it makes them feel good.
2. Search for Any Biased Opinions in the Article Another step is to evaluate the piece based on biased opinions. The thing is that people often pick sides of an argument based on the outcomes rather than the evidence. So, if the result makes them feel bad in any way, they can search for any proof that would discredit it and, thus, make them feel better.
3. Pay Attention to the Way the Author Interprets Others’ Texts. Does He or She Look at Others’ Viewpoints through Inappropriate Political Lenses? It takes much time and experience in research practice to recognize the fingerprints of all the political slants out there. To grasp the concept, let's look at the subject of animal studies. To begin with, it's worth noting that some people become involved in certain industries due to their emotional involvement in their related topics. For example, people who write about animals are likely those who genuinely love them. This can put their work at risk of being biased toward portraying animals in a way that gives their topic more importance than it deserves. This is a clear example of what you should be looking for.
When reading and re-reading the article, find and highlight cases in which the author overstates the importance of some things due to his or her own beliefs. Then, to polish your mental research instruments, go back to point 1 of this list to review the list of logical fallacies you can look out for.
4. Check Cited Sources Another big step to writing a perfect critique paper is identifying whether the author cited untrustworthy sources of information. Doing this is not easy and requires a certain experience.
For example, let's look at Breitbart news. How would you define whether it is an untrustworthy source or not? To rate trustworthiness, one should know about its long history of distorting facts to suit a far-right agenda. Learning this requires paying a lot of attention to local and international news.
5. Evaluate the Language Used in the Article Language is vital in every article, regardless of the field and topic. Therefore, while working on your critique, you should pay close attention to the language the article's author uses.
Just to give you a clear example of what you should be looking for: some words have cultural meanings attached to them, which can create a confrontation in the article. Such terms can place people, objects, or ideas into the 'them' side in the 'us vs. them' scenario.
For example, if someone conservative refers to an opponent using the word “leftist”, this can be considered a form of attacking the messenger and not the message. A similar concept applies to a case when someone progressive refers to an opponent using the word “bigot”.
Using such language in an article is a clear sign of logical fallacies. Authors use it to discredit their opponents on the merit of who they are rather than what they say. This is poor word choice because the debate does not get resolved.
6. Question the Research Methods in Scientific Articles
This may not always be mandatory, but if you write an article critique for a scientific piece, you are expected to question and evaluate how the author did their research.
To do this, ask the following questions:
  • How is the design of the study? Are there any errors in it?
  • How does the piece explain the research methods?
  • Was there a control group used for this research?
  • Were there any sample size issues?
  • Were there any statistical errors?
  • Is there a way to recreate the experiment in a laboratory setting?
  • Does the research (or experiment) offer any real impact and/or value in its field of science?
Step 3: Formatting Your Paper
Just like any other written assignment, a critique paper should be formatted and structured properly. A standard article critique consists of four parts: an introduction, summary, analysis, and conclusion. Below is a clear checklist to help you grasp the idea of how a good paper should be formatted:
  • The name of the author and title of the article.
  • The core idea of the author.
  • A clear thesis that reflects the direction of your critique.
  • The main idea of the article.
  • The main arguments presented in the article.
  • The conclusion of the article.
  • Highlight the strong and weak sides of the article.
  • Express an educated opinion regarding the article's relevancy, clarity, and accuracy, and back up your claims with direct examples from the piece.
  • Summary of the key points of the article.
  • Finalization of your conclusion with your comments on the relevancy of the research.
  • If you claim the research is relevant, explain why further study in this field can be useful.
How to Critique a Journal Article
So, you were assigned to write a critique paper for a journal article? If you are not sure where to start, here is a step-by-step guide on how to critique a journal article:
1. Collect basic information Regardless of the article subject you are going to critique; your paper has to contain some basic information, including the following:
  • Title of the article reviewed.
  • Title of the journal where it is published, along with the date and month of publication, volume number, and pages where the article can be found.
  • Statement of the main issue or problem revealed in the piece.
  • Purpose, research methods, approach, hypothesis, and key findings.
  • Therefore, the first step is to collect this information.
2. Read the article once and re-read after First, get an overview of it and grasp the general idea of it. A good critique should reflect your qualified and educated opinion regarding the article. To shape such an opinion, you have to read the piece again, this time critically, and highlight everything that can be useful for writing your paper.
3. Write your critique based on the evidence you have collected Here are the main questions to address when writing a journal article critique:
  • Is the article's title clear and appropriate?
  • Is the article's abstract presented in the correct form, relevant to the content of the article, and specific?
  • Is the purpose stated in the introduction made clear?
  • Are there any errors in the author's interpretations and facts?
  • Is the discussion relevant and valuable?
  • Has the author cited valid and trusted sources?
  • Did you find any ideas that were overemphasized or underemphasized in the article?
  • Do you believe some sections of the piece have to be expanded, condensed, or omitted?
  • Are all statements the author makes clear?
  • What are the author's core assumptions?
  • Has the author of the article been objective in his or her statements?
  • Are the approaches and research methods used suitable?
  • Are the statistical methods appropriate?
  • Is there any duplicated or repeated content?

As you go through all these steps, you can transition to writing. When writing your critique paper, you should critically evaluate the research article you have read and use the evidence collected from the piece. To help you structure your research article critique properly, here is a sample outline of a critique of research for the article The Effects of Early Education on Children's Competence in Elementary School:
1. Bibliographic Information
  • Author(s): M. B. Bronson, D. E. Pierson & T. Tivnan
  • Title: The Effects of Early Education on Children's Competence in Elementary School
  • Year of publication: 1984
  • Source: Evaluation Review, 8(5), 143-155
2. Summary of the Article
  • Problem statement: Do early childhood education programs have significant and long-term impacts on kids’ competencies in elementary school?
  • Background: To perform well in elementary school, children need to possess a variety of competencies.
  • Hypothesis: Early childhood education programs decrease the rate of children who fall below the minimal competencies defined as necessary for effective performance in the second grade.
  • Dependent Variables: mastery skills, social skills, and use of time; Independent Variables: Brookline Early Education Program; Controlled Variables: mother’s level of education.
  • Research Design: A Quasi-experimental design, with a post-test only comparison group design, with no random selection of children, assignment to treatment, or control group.
  • Sampling: The study engaged 169 students into the BEEP program. Students were selected randomly from the same second-grade classrooms and matched by gender. Also, the group was divided into children who continued their BEEP program (104) and those who moved elsewhere but were still tracked (65).
  • Instrumentation: For the research, the authors used a specially developed tool – the Executive Skill Profile – to help detect and track students’ mastery, social, and time use skills.
  • Collection/Ethics: The observation took place in Spring, during the students’ second-grade year. On different days (between three and six weeks apart) the observers recorded behaviors of all children for six 10-minute periods. Duration and frequency of behaviors were also recorded.
  • Data analysis: The researchers conducted a series of tests to examine any significant changes in mastery, social, and time use skills between matched pairs of children (those who were engaged in BEEP and those who moved elsewhere).
  • Authors’ findings: The study showed that children who were engaged in the BEEP program performed better on tests and showed better mastery and social skills. There were no significant changes in students’ time use skills. The early education program made a difference at all three levels of treatment for students whose mothers have college educations. However, the same program made a difference only at the most intense level for students whose mothers don’t have college educations.
3. Critique
  • Possible Threats to the Internal Validity
  • History: Was not controlled as the comparison children may have not spent their entire lives in the same area as the treatment students.
  • Maturation: Controlled. Students were matched by gender and grade.
  • Testing: The observers recorded students’ behaviors within 3-to-6 week periods. This fact may have influenced their behaviors.
  • Instrumentation: The tool used may have been a subject to bias from the observers' perspective.
  • Selection bias: All selected students volunteered to participate in the study. Thus, the findings could be affected by self-selection.
  • Experimental mortality: Students who left the area were still tracked as a part of the treatment group, though they should have been evaluated separately.
  • Design contamination: It is possible that children in the comparison group learned skills from the students in the treatment group since they all were from the same classroom.
  • Possible Threats to External Validity
  • Unique features of the program: The program was available both for community residents and non-residents.
  • Experimental arrangements: Brooklin is an affluent community, unlike many others.
4. Conclusion
  • Is the reviewed article useful?
  • Does it make sense?
  • Do the findings of the study look convincing? Explain.
  • Does the study have any significance and/or practical value for its respective field of science?

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual disorder that happens to many men worldwide. For some men, medication may be a helpful way to manage this condition. However, before taking premature ejaculation medicine, there are several important things to keep in mind.

Consult with your healthcare professional

Before taking any medication for premature ejaculation, it is important to talk to your doctor or a qualified healthcare provider. They can help you determine whether a particular premature ejaculation medicine is an appropriate option for you and provide guidance on which medication to take and at what dosage.

Understand the potential side effects

Like all medications, premature ejaculation medication can have potential side effects. Common side effects of such medicines include nausea, headache, and dizziness. It is important to understand the potential side effects before taking the medication so that you can make an informed decision.

Know the dosage of these medicines and the directions for consuming them

As part of proper premature ejaculation treatment, it is important to know the correct dosage of the medication and how to take it. Some medications need to be taken several hours before sexual activity, while others can be taken daily. Make sure you understand the instructions for taking the medication and follow them carefully.

Be aware of potential drug interactions

If you are taking other medications or supplements, it is important to be aware of potential drug interactions. Certain medications such as nitrates and alpha-blockers can interact with premature ejaculation medication and cause serious side effects. Make sure to tell your doctor about any medications or supplements you are taking before starting premature ejaculation medication.

Understand the limitations of medication

While medication can help manage premature ejaculation, it is important to understand that it is not a cure. Medication for premature ejaculation can help you last longer during sex, but it may not completely eliminate the problem. In addition, medication may not be effective for all men with premature ejaculation.

Consider non-medication options

There are several non-medication options for managing premature ejaculation, such as behavioural techniques and counselling. These options may be effective for some men and may be worth considering before trying medication.
Taking premature ejaculation medication can be a helpful way to manage this common sexual disorder especially when you get it from the best service providers such as andSons Malaysia. However, before taking medication, it is important to consult with your doctor, and understand the potential side effects and drug interactions, etc.

2023.03.31 18:25 Misguided_Key So I’m in a market that doesn’t show upfront fares

I’m new to doing rides. Is there a secret to accepting the best paying rides, or avoiding accepting a super long trip out of my zone to avoid losing money on the rides I give? Since my only upfront info is the time of drive to pick up, I’m wanting to make sure I’m maximizing my profits as much as possible. Any help or insight is appreciated.

2023.03.31 18:25 Hug_the_Curve I don't know how you put up with it.

This is a FSD rant. I live in an area of suburbs among many areas best defined as rural. The roads are all usually 35 to 45 mph and none have changed speeds in the two decades I have been out here. I don't live in a world of grid like roads you find in a city.
I cannot even make a FSD drive to a grocery store less than five miles from my house let alone the ten mile drive to my parents without disengaging FSD either out of frustration or to communicate to Tesla that it did something wrong.
I do leave some choice words when it prompts me for why I disengaged. I am not even remotely embarrassed by the language I use anymore. I want to participate in the beta but honestly at times I am aghast at how bad it is. I would be too embarrassed to show it off to anyone. I am certainly too embarrassed to use it anyone gets behind me.

2023.03.31 18:25 OneEstate8464 What gift card could buy for a friend visiting Hong Kong?

I was supposed to visit Hong Kong with a friend next week for her birthday, but I had to cancel last minute (unexpected of a relative). I was planning on paying for us to have dinnedrinks etc in a nice restaurant for her birthday as well as other small such things. Clearly that's not possible anymore. Any idea of places that I could buy her a gift card from instead so she can go and enjoy a nice experience there instead ? She won't accept any money from me directly so that's not an option and Googling Hong Kong gift card hasn't really helped...
Thanks for your help, I hope I'm not breaking any sub rules.

2023.03.31 18:24 hjbyers44 Celexa and sex drive

Hi everyone! I started taking Celexa (citalopram) about a month ago and I have noticed a few things. I have taken Celexa before, and it really helped me, so when I was going through some big chances in life, I decided to try it again. Before taking this though, my sex drive was down the drain. I would maybe get turned on like once a month. Ever since starting Celexa again though, it’s really helped my sex drive, which I always thought it was supposed to do the opposite. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know why this happens?

2023.03.31 18:24 Potential-Doubt-7922 Responder - No output

I am having an issue with responder in Kali Linux and I was unable to find somewhere to ask a question more directly so here goes.

I have kali linux set up in an enterprise environment on a machine with two interfaces, the main interface is used to access the box directly and the second interface can be moved around the network by reconfiguring the switch port to a particular VLAN.
When I run responder it says `listening for events` but never shows anything, there are over 200 windows devices in the network it is listening to. I am able to see all sorts of broadcast traffic on the interace with Wireshark/tcpdump, but none of those events seem to be detected by Responder.
I have tried the interface with no IP address assigned and without same results

Not sure what to try....

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

exChanging JBOD drive to a new one
DS720+ / DSM 7.1.1-42962 Update 4
I've purchased have two ironwolf drives 5 years ago. 12 and 8 TB. I used them on simple external closure but later switched to 720+. So.. The first one (12 TB) developed bad sectors and I am looking to replace it with WD Gold 12 TB.
Those two drives are in basic jbod mode, because I use them more or less just for media library. I know Raid or SHR would be easier but.. f.. it. It is what it is.
Every drive has its own storage pool and own volume.
Now.. how can I do this most painlessly and without losing data?
I have some ideas, let me know if any of them is plausible or if there's an easier way.

  1. If I run hyper backup and backup the (first - storage pool 1 / volume 1) 12 TB drive onto the secondary 8 TB (storage pool 2 / volume 2) drive (I can clean up this drive so the available space wouldn't be a problem). Then replace the affected drive (12 TB) with the new one and restore backup from mentioned secondary drive, will this work?
  2. If I turn off NAS, remove the drive and clone it via some cloning software on my Win PC and then put the new cloned drive back into NAS, will this work?
  3. If I plug the new WD drive to the NAS USB is there a way to "clone/backup/restore" everything from the first 12 TB drive to a new WD one? So afterwards I could just replace the drives?
  4. If I remove the secondary 8 TB drive and plug in the new WD drive. Can I clone everything from affected drive and afterwards swap them and replug back the 8 TB secondary drive?

Thanks guys. It's a long time since I was playing around with NAS.. So I forgot some things. 😄

2023.03.31 18:24 heyiisuck Rattling noise?

Rattling noise?
2004 Toyota Celica GT, bought a couple of months ago. I noticed a rattling noise yesterday morning, it was only really present from maybe 15-25 mph. So today I had my sister start the car while I had the hood open. This video is the second time, I had her turn it off in between for probably half a minute. Around 18 seconds in I had to her apply pressure to the gas to about 2k rpm. While driving the noise goes away after certain speed like 30 mph and I think right after taking my foot off the gas. To me the timing belt looks to have all its teeth and to be properly in place, but I did notice a small tear. So I'll have to replace it regardless of the cause of this. I'm not sure if that could cause the noise or not. The other noise level is typical of it Odometer around 202,300 miles, by the way. Does anybody know what could be wrong?

2023.03.31 18:24 ya-boi-6942021 Would this be allowed on a driving test?

Would this be allowed on a driving test?
I own a Vauxhall corsa but when I bought the car, there was a fault light that showed up on the dashboard and we couldn’t get it to turn off and neither could my mechanic even after he fixed the fault but I was hoping to take my driving test within the next week and didn’t want to have to wait to get it fixed elsewhere as that will be at least a month.
On the dvsa website it says that you shouldn’t have any fault lights on but my driving instructor says it should be fine. Just wanted to ask if it would be ok to take my test with the light on so I don’t waste £60 having to book a new test
