11foot8/ -- reddit's largest home for low bridges and the cars that crash into them. The 11'8" bridge, also known as the "canopener," is an old railroad trestle that has a real hunger for any tall truck or RV that strays too close. While originally 11'8", in late 2019 the bridge was raised an additional 8 inches and is now 12'4".

It's he too small?
My Swissy puppy is 9 weeks old. We were expecting him to be a bit bigger when he arrived, given the size of his parents, and have been surprised by how small his feet are. In other large breeds we've had (German shepherd, bloodhound) their feet even as puppies were so big and out of proportion, but this little guy's feet are tiny. He met two German shepherd puppies today who are within days of his same age, and they were easily twice his size, maybe even bigger than that. Just curious if swissies start out small, and then grow rapidly. Thanks

11 Essential Tips for Solar System For Home

11 Essential Tips for Solar System For Home
With the growing concerns over climate change and the increasing cost of traditional energy sources, many homeowners are turning to solar power as a sustainable and cost-effective solution. Solar systems for homes have become more accessible and affordable in recent years, making it an attractive option for those who want to harness the power of the sun. If you're considering installing a solar system in your home, here are 11 essential tips to help you make the most of this renewable energy source.
Assess your energy needs: Start by evaluating your household's energy consumption. Examine your electricity bills to understand how much energy you typically use. This will give you an idea of the size and capacity of the solar system you'll need to meet your energy requirements.
Conduct a site analysis: Before installing solar panels, assess your property to determine the best location for maximum sunlight exposure. Consider factors such as roof orientation, shading from trees or nearby buildings, and the angle of inclination. A professional solar installer can help you with this evaluation.
Understand solar panel types: Solar panels come in different types, including monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film. Each has its own advantages and price points. Research and compare the different options to choose the one that suits your needs and budget.
Work with a reputable installer: Hiring a qualified and experienced solar installer is crucial for a successful solar system installation. Look for certifications, reviews, and recommendations to ensure you're working with a reliable professional who can handle the installation and maintenance of your solar panels.
Consider your roof's condition: Assess the condition of your roof before installing solar panels. If your roof is old or in need of repair, it's advisable to address those issues before installing the solar system. This will prevent any potential damage or complications during the installation process.
Evaluate your financial options: Solar panel systems can be a significant investment, but there are various financial options available to make it more affordable. Research federal and local incentives, tax credits, and financing programs that can help offset the initial costs. Additionally, consider leasing or power purchase agreements (PPAs) if purchasing the system outright is not feasible.
Optimize energy efficiency: Before installing solar panels, focus on improving the energy efficiency of your home. Simple steps such as installing LED lights, upgrading insulation, sealing air leaks, and using energy-efficient appliances can reduce your overall energy consumption, making your solar system more effective.
Monitor and maintain your system: Regular monitoring and maintenance of your solar system are crucial to ensure its optimal performance. Keep an eye on the energy production and promptly address any issues. Clean the panels periodically to remove dust, dirt, and debris that can reduce their efficiency.
Educate yourself about net metering: Net metering is a billing arrangement that allows you to sell excess electricity generated by your solar system back to the grid. Understand how net metering works in your area and how it can benefit you in terms of reducing your energy costs.
Be patient with the return on investment: Investing in a solar system for your home is a long-term commitment. While the initial cost may seem high, remember that solar panels have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years. Over time, the savings on your energy bills can help you recoup the investment and even generate profits.
Spread the word: As a solar system owner, share your experience with friends, family, and neighbours. Help spread awareness about the benefits of solar energy and inspire others to consider renewable energy sources for their homes.
Installing a solar system for your home is a significant step towards reducing your carbon footprint and saving on energy costs.

2023.06.05 07:35 DavidTheKingDGK Things I would fix if I was supercell

Im a 10 year veteran of COC, and I've played Clash Royale and Bawlstars since they were both betas. I am curently ranked 28 on Floodrush and have been top 10. Davidtheking. Upvote to get these things to supercell. Here are my personal hot-takes on flood rush. I play on android. The game is great, love to amass my army, and use different techniques based on what I'm given, to create a better army that i may smash into rival players with. I believe this game is special and i've practically neglected my COC clan and my BS club for the last week and half or so, so I could spend more time playing FR lol. It is so much fun. In this time I have experienced bugs, and realised there are a few ergonomic things I would correct as follows. Main Game Bugs. -Crashes. Game will sometimes crash, sometimes also has trouble reloading up to three times. -Improper Loading In? Ocean appears as pink, sometimes preceeding a crash. As if not loading well I guess, sometimes including horizon, or ground layer. -Troop Recall. May be depending on troop type and range. Seems like I can run 10 meters in game to recall may army and other times I have to run 1p0 meters. Feels inconsistent. I would rather all troops recall just as fast every time, regardless of range or type. If I get 10 meters away, I want everything to come to me right now. I think this would make player encounters more controllable and more skill based when it comes to the outcome. Lets the Seeker shine a bit more. My General Wants For The Game Right Now -Auto pick up of already held cards that are of a higher level. -Ability to amass bigger armies faster. Now hear me out. I see the point where if armies build slower everyone feels like they had a good shot more. But, on the other hand I'd rather see a 300 vs a 290 than see a 110 and an 85. Just me. Maybe a game type where taika is produced at 2x. - Multiplayer. I want to team up with my buddy as the same color and really get things going. Even 4v4. Imagine a farmed 500 power team vs a farmed 500 power team. -Less time Before Map Shrink, more Taika in between. Makes for bigger, more varied armies, and allows a farming strategy type to more fully evolve.
Off the top of my head this is what I have. Feel free to upvote and add your own ideas in the comments. I see where you guys are going with the seeker abilities, and the troops types, (watefire) love it. This a true great phone RTS. Cant wait for the Flood Rush future.

2023.06.05 07:30 geopter Best CA native shrubs for foundation planting? What do you use in your yard?

I'm in 9B SF Bay Area, far enough south to have only limited fog. The front of my house faces west, and is somewhat shaded by an awesome street tree some 30 feet away.
The front bed has been planted with an eclectic variety of shrubs and other plants, including culinary rosemary (5+ feet tall and awesome, I don't water it), non-culinary (?) rosemary that doesn't grow that tall (okay), nandina / heavenly bamboo (yuck), privet (big yuck), pittosporum (?), English ivy, and African bridal creeper. (Don't let this wide variety fool you into thinking this is a large area. We're talking like 25 feet of frontage here.)
I'm removing the nandina, privet, pittosporum, and ivy and creeper vines. I'm not sure whether I'll remove the low-growing rosemary or not.
I'm looking for suggestions for plants that will grow in 4-8 feet tall, mesh with my two giant rosemary bushes, and be okay planted 3-4 feet from the house in the front bed.
Tell me about how you've done your front yard!

CW: Sweet sweet excessive violence
The little skiff drifted lazily along the asteroid belt. In a backwater system, free from prying eyes, the crew had ample time and space to test their newest toy. The ursdain in the pilot’s seat adjusted a couple controls before settling back in his chair. His avian co-pilot was observing the rest of the crew on the security feed.
“What is he doing?”
The ursdain leaned over, “Practicing?”
The avian’s half lidded stare was the only response.
In the cargo bay were the skiff’s other three occupants. A rather burly male human with brown skin and a mostly shaved head was yanking his tomahawk back out of the wooden board he had hung up on the wall. He walked back a few paces before turning and hurling it back at the target.
“Do you have to do that right now?” asked the exacerbated vulptan.
“Nope.” He responded while lining up his next throw.
“Just let him. If he doesn’t keep busy, he’ll keep trying to add ‘modifications.” The red-headed human female interjected while elbow deep in their prototype.
“You’re just jealous of my brilliance.”
“Sure. We’ll call it that.”
Meanwhile as the ursdain began to ponder his next meal a red blip flashed on his display followed by a sharp claxon. He slammed the red alert, “Thakt, we got company!”
The avian was already attempting to jam the enemy sensors, but they’d been made. “They’re on their way! Pirates looking to board!” She keyed the intercom, “Prepare for boarders!”
As soon as the lights went red the man in the jury-rigged shop ran to the new machine. “This thing ready?”
“The targeting computer hasn’t been installed and there’s still the issue of-“
“Can it move!?”
“Yes, but-“
“Strap me in!” He snached up the helmet and mask then climbed in the suit. The women began closing and sealing panels as he donned the helmet, flipped down the visor, and sealed the mask to his face.
“Gonzo! Listen to me. You don’t have a lot of time in that thing, so you gotta be in and out. Alright?”
“Lil, this is what I’m good at. Let me work.” She rolled her eyes as she closed the front up.
He opened then closed his mechanical fingers and rolled his shoulders. The suit seemed to be responding well. He stood to its full height and slammed the dome helmet down over his head. The other two already snatched a couple weapons and ran for the bridge to secure it. He stalked over to the armory bench to pick up some toys and party favors when the com cracked to life in his ear.
“Gonzo? You receiving?”
“Loud and clear.”
“Our only shot at getting out of here is you disabling their engines and breaking whatever they use to mate with us.”
He giggled slightly as he strapped the weapon harness over his mid-section. “Copy. Break shit. Can do.”
The ship shuddered and jolted. “They’re broadcasting for surrender.”
“Sure, I’ll accept their surrender.”
“Funny. They’re about to breach the stern airlock. Get ready.”
Gonzo drew a breath and put his game face on. Their MO is to breach loud and fast. A little shock and awe. He planted a couple surprises by the hatch then took cover around the bulkhead.
“They’re about to breach.” He popped a couple smoke grenades and tossed them down the corridor. Then an idea struck him, and he popped a couple more and thrust them in his harness for a bit of Blackbeard flair. He readied his weapon and checked the other two. All he could do was wait.
A few seconds later the hatch blasted in and two canids rushed into the haze. Gonzo didn’t know how armored they were, but he figured being covered in burning napalm was a bad thing. He leaned the nozzle around the corner and lit up the entrance. The blinding light pierced the smoke and judging from the screams, they weren’t ready for assaulting a weapons manufacturing ship. Now came the fun part of the suit. While the auto-aim and friend/foe feature weren’t installed, it did have a suite of sensors such as sonar, lidar, and infrared.
Gonzo could see the outlines of the thrashing pirates and held his fire. A couple more pirates entered the hall to drag their comrades out. That’s when he hit the clacker. The anti-personnel mines went off, filling the confined space with hundreds of ball-bearings in an instant.
“Hey! We gotta clean all that up when you’re done you know!”
“Relax. I’m advancing now. Give me a map.”
Sure enough, a holo layout of the pirate ship sprung to life in the corner of his vision, complete with the highlighted sections of engineering and security. He advanced through the smoke onto the pirate ship. As he emerged through the smoke, more billowing off him like a demon fresh from Hell, he saw more pirates readying to storm his little craft. They were lightly armored. Shame. With another squeeze and lazy turn, he coated the would-be intruders.
Realizing they bit off more than they could chew, the lights on the pirate vessel began flashing red, and a call to repel boarders went out. Gonzo hustled down the passages headed toward engineering. He rounded the corner and dove back behind the corner as the ursdain with a gatling laser opened up from the other end of the hall. He wasn’t sure the flamethrower would make it to the other side, so he swapped to his baby. He tossed his last smoke grenade around the corner and counted to ten.
When he felt the passage was good and obscured, he held his replica China Lake around the corner and fired. Fwoomp…BOOM! Something wet and red hit the wall beside Gonzo. I think I got ‘em. He pumped another round into the chamber and continued.
He found Engineering easily enough and stormed inside. It was a large room dominated by…Well, the engine he supposed. Gonzo wasn’t an engineer, but he was a 2300. He was about to jog up to the biggest most important looking bit when his legs were taken out from under him. He was quickly bound up in ssypno coils and could hear the suit groaning under the pressure.
“There’ll be no more of that. Now let’s get you out of that can.”
Gonzo struggled to no avail, but he’d be damned before he gave up. He took a breath and forced his arms out away from his body. The suit groaned and struggled to give him the breathing room he needed. When he thought he had the space to work with, his hand shot to his knife strapped to his belt. He drew it and twisted his hand just as the coils snapped shut around him. The pirate stabbed herself in the soft scales of her underbelly just as Gonzo drew his arm around his torso slicing long and deep.
She shrieked as he carved, and quickly tried to slither away, but he snatched a piece of her armor and rode her, continuing to stab and slash at the joints in her suit. She tried to curl in on herself and grab the man with her upper arms. He wrestled with her for a while before he drew his offhand behind her opposing arm then using her own death grip on his main hand bent her arm around his. Her elbow snapped and she shrieked. With brief freedom of movement, Gonzo drew his knife up and plunged it into her sub armored neck. Her tail thrashed and writhed before the life seeped from her.
Gasping and sweating profusely, he drew himself up and stumbled to the drive core. Or what he thought was the drive core. He wasn’t an astrophysicist, but he was sure this thing didn’t like heavy explosives. He quickly rigged up an IED around the biggest glowiest part and set it to go off on his clacker.
He jogged from engineering to security but was stopped in the passages by a couple canids ambushing him. One opened fire with a laser-rifle, striking him in the upper torso, but the armor kept his chest from being cauterized. The blast streaked off the chest piece leaving a red-hot mark. It burned.
“Keep out of fire, Gonzo! I was trying to tell you that the heat-sinks aren’t finished yet!”
There may not have been a new hole in him, but it burned like Hell. He closed the distance to his attackers, too close to use his rifle, and they met him with claw and teeth drawn. The first canid threw themselves at him, knocking him down, and clamping their jaws around where his neck would be. He heard a hiss as something gave way on his shoulder. He fought and rolled to buck them off, but they held fast.
Gonzo decided it was time to draw his sidearm and clamped his hand down on the head of the assaulting canid to keep them in place. The other one tried to claw at his legs, but only found solid titanium alloy. He reached down to his holster and drew the comically oversized revolver, now appropriately sized in the power-armor’s fist. He thrust the barrel under the canid’s chin and fired. Their friends’ helmet rocketing off their head gave Gonzo the brief shock needed to roll the first pirate off him, raise his pistol, and fire point blank at his second attacker. As their head snapped back, he hauled himself back onto his feet and limped into security.
He needed to find a way to release his ship but drew short at the two canids and taurian blocking the consoles. The two canids threw themselves at Gonzo, biting and clawing for all they were worth. The heat in the suit was becoming unbearable. It was starting to sear bits of exposed flesh. Gonzo regretted jumping in in a tank top.
One canid clamped their jaws on his neck while the other went for his legs trying to drop him to the deck. Something snapped to his left and he lost all control of his left arm. It was just a hundred pounds of dead weight. He fell back swinging his pistol around trying to pistol-whip his attackers.
“That’s enough! Just give up and we’ll sell you somewhere nice.” The taurian called out.
Gonzo bucked his hips and fired at the canid by his legs but missed. Repeating what he did before he point-blank lobotomized the canid by his shoulder. With a roll, he popped himself back up readying his next shot when the second canid fell on him. He held his ground as they slashed and leapt to bite.
He caught them in the air and slammed them into the bulkhead beside him. It was nice to be eye level with them for once. He used this to his advantage by slamming his titanium fist into their face and gut repeatedly, feeling each subtle bone crack and snap. The taurian grabbed him under the arms and hurled him to the other side of the room as the last canid slumped down the wall.
The pirate drew some kind of bladed weapon. Big mistake. Gonzo drew his tomahawk, and sprinted forward with his head down. Using all the power in the suit he had, he slammed into her stomach and drove her forward into the wall.
She recovered her breath quickly and began raining blows down on his back and shoulders. The strain was beginning to get to him. Sweat was streaming down his body, stinging his eyes. The suit burned. He bent his knees then shot upright, driving his helmet into her chin. She rocked back in shock and Gonzo took a couple steps back. His left arm was dead. He could only grasp with the fingers. The pirate rubbed her chin.
“Oh, you’ll pay for that.”
Gonzo quickly tossed his tomahawk up and grabbed it by the end, before hurling it at his enemy. It buried in her shoulder, and she screamed. He sprinted at her full tilt with his head down shoulder out and pinned her to the wall. She kept fighting and pushed him back. Gonzo used his hips to swing his dead arm around to the pirate and clamped down with his hand. His hand locked in place as the taurian began to try and ineffectually push him away. Panting, he decided to give her a bit of backward-knee syndrome. He hauled back and put his and his suits’ full weight into a stomp kick right on her knee.
It folded back and she shrieked. Now at chest height he began slamming his fist into her helmet until it warped and broke. He stopped when he saw the stream of blood pour out the bottom.
He tried to make his way to the console, but realized his hand was stuck gripping the dead-weight of the corpse. He planted one boot on its back and pulled for all he was worth. With a fresh souvenir of taurian hide trapped in his grasp, he quickly worked the security console and disengaged the clams holding his ship in place. Once freed, he pulled out his clacker and slammed it. The whole ship rocked and shuddered. Catching his que he limp-jogged back to his ship. The remaining pirates were too busy with damage control as the ship quickly began filling with vacuum. Gonzo found his airlock with minimal resistance and threw himself in it.
“Blast!” he cried as he clutched the safety bar inside the lock. Grokna punched the skiff for all it was worth headed for the nearest jump point.
When the airlock cycled Gonzo limped back into the scorched cargo hold with hydro leaking down his left side. Lil and Korsk sprinted in to check on the man as he clumsily clutched at the emergency releases. The dome helmet fired clean off the top while the chest piece fired out revealing the sweat drenched and burned pilot. The suit dropped to its knees as Gonzo flopped out ripping his mask and helmet off. He gulped at the fresh air and luxuriated in the coolness of the metal floor when he gasped, “I…I have…Some notes…Need…Better cooling…”

2023.06.05 07:27 Donga87 C5-C6 ACDF experience - pins and needles, numbness in lower half, poor balance and motor function in legs. 36/M

Hi All,
I thought I'd share my experience and answer any questions from my POV that come up. 36 yr old male that had a trauma to the c5-c6.
So a couple months back I did a backflip (done a million in my lifetime and never had any reason to think this one would be any different) and upon landing even though I landed on my feet... I knew something was wrong. I had pins and needles radiate down both arms (isolated to ring and pinky fingers). Later 2 further minor incidents (bumping head into a door frame and a slip causing me to catch myself on a door handle) caused symptoms of numbness from the ribs down, poor balance and motor function of legs making walking difficult.
A Doctor visit, CT-scan, Neurosurgeon consultation and MRI later I am told I need urgent surgery and that I've got the worst damage to a spine/neck he's seen this year to date. I had clear damage to my c5-c6 and cervical myelopathy. Two other neurosurgeons took a look at my MRI and have told me that I am incredibly lucky and that without surgery that eventually I will almost definitely get worse and that ACDF surgery has the most chance of improving my quality of life.
Due to the damage, all Neurosurgeon's involved, Dr's and hospitals did amazing work to get my surgery performed in record time (Under 10 days from my first consultation). I am now in day 3 post surgery and my first day since being discharged from hospital.
Post-op I immediately felt significant improvements in my hands (pins and needles), numbness and was pretty sure I had better control over my legs but wasn't allowed to test until hours later when I was able to mobilise and go visit the toilet.
From there I had my post op x-ray to make sure everything was in place, saw a physio and my Neurosurgeon who were happy with the improvements and cleared me to get discharged the next day.
Other things of note - I had hyperreflexia and they were very interested in my response to the hoffman test. I was kept awake until the breathing tube was put into my throat to minimise my potential to damage during surgery and I feel like my Neurosurgeon did an amazing job because I have had minimal throat pain/inflammation in the 3 days post-operation. Talking and swallowing did cause my pain levels to rise slightly and felt that the pain was more intense on day 2 than immediately post-op.
My nerve issues are not 100% gone, but if I had to give the improvement a score it'd be 80-90% better. I am told that the hope is over the next 2-6 weeks as my bones fuse, that I will continue to see improvement.
If there is significant interest in my case/situation, I'm more than happy to provide more information or an update as I rehab/recover.
I hope this helps anyone out there who is concerned and may be going through the same or a similar situation I had.

2023.06.05 07:27 denywinarto Daisy chain 3048 sfp port with linksys switch

So I've got a server with 10gb bandwidth and linksys sfp+ switch that i'd like to daisy chain using cisco 3048 + SFP DAC cable.
Server > linksys switch > clients
Server > linksys switch > cisco switch > clients
Problem is, cisco wont seem to detect the SFP DAC cable from linksys' sfp port.
I've tried 2 DAC cables, 10 meters and 3 meters from different brand.
But when plugged the led went from solid orange to off.
I've checked the console and all ports are not shut.
Is cisco known to be picky when it comes to sfp DAC or is there anything i can do in terms of config?

2023.06.05 07:26 Thalesian M1 GPU Performance

I am testing this on an M1 Ultra with 128 GPU of RAM and a 64 core GPU. This is based on the latest build of llama.cpp, which began GPU support for the M1 line today. I'm using the 65B Dettmer Guanco model. Performance is blazing fast, though it is a hurry up and wait pattern. Tokens are generated faster than I can read, but the GPU seems to need to pause every 20 seconds or so for long text generation. Probably need to increase batch sizes and make use of all that RAM.
llama_print_timings: load time = 12309.79 ms
llama_print\timings: sample time = 179.21 ms / 256 runs ( 0.70 ms per token)
llama_print_timings: prompt eval time = 1723.06 ms / 8 tokens ( 215.38 ms per token)
llama_print_timings: eval time = 33199.76 ms / 255 runs ( 130.20 ms per token)
The prompt:
(base) [email protected] llama.cpp % LLAMA_METAL=1 make -j && ./main -m ./models/guanaco-65B.ggmlv3.q4_0.bin -p "The first known dinosaur was" --ignore-eos -n 256 -ngl 1
And the response:
The first known dinosaur was discovered in 1824 and since then, the study of these fascinating creatures has been a source of wonder for many. These prehistoric reptiles came in all shapes and sizes, from the tiny Microraptor (about the size of a sparrow) to the enormous Argentinosaurus that was longer than 3 school buses!
What’s even more fascinating is that these different species were spread out across the globe. Some dinosaurs like the Triceratops and T-Rex roamed North America, while others such as the Muttaburrasaurus and Minmi were found in Australia. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at some of the most fascinating species that once roamed our planet.
One of the largest land animals to have ever lived, Argentinosaurus was truly an impressive sight. It weighed around 80 tons and measured up to 130 feet from nose to tail! Despite its massive size, this giant herbivore was probably slow-moving and gentle in nature. The Argentinosaurus belonged to a group of sauropod dinosaurs that included other huge species like the
The accuracy surprises me. I asked it about the evolution of monotremes, and it correctly cited Streptodon galami in the Cretaceous. Though like all LLMs it tends to wander a bit if the response is longer.

2023.06.05 07:25 Gimpy47 help, trying not to panic

I have been diagnosed two years ago, and have been stable for about 16 months. I am a rookie here. The last few weeks my feet and ankles have been swollen and stiff. My fingers are starting to hurt along with my wrists. Is this a flare? I am thinking about calling my doctor tomorrow, but don't want to be labeled as an alarmist. Do I wait it out?

2023.06.05 07:24 Aggressive-River-987 lyrics for a vehicular cycling battle hymn, arranged for Schonberg and Boublil's Les Mis score

Do you hear the cyclists sing?
Decrying their sad, frustrated lot
Having been giv’n so-called “protection”
They’re not pleased with what they’ve got!
With blind corners every block
And now invisible to cars,
“Protected” cyclists should be thanking their lucky stars!

For now they’re safe and sound except when folks in SUV’s
Turn right or use street parking;
And pay no attention, please,
To the spiraling numbers of bicycle fatalities!

Do you hear the cyclists sing?
Lost in their own “protected” lanes,
Riding down glass-strewn secret tunnels
Dodging doors and sewer drains.
For the planners of the Earth,
There’s no bike lane that can’t be hid.
Why not treat every cyclist like they’re just a kid?

They cannot be responsible for their own saf-e-ty:
We must herd them into gutters
Where they cannot even see
The other road users they’ll need to scan for to ride free!

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and ride with me?
Somewhere outside those hidden gutters is a place you long to be
When the ped’ling of your feet
Echoes the honking of the horns
We’ll have more room out in the street
When tomorrow dawns
