YSK asking "How are you feeling?" is a much more open-ended question that's not as accusatory or intimidating as "What's wrong?" : YouShouldKnow
“YSK asking ‘How are you feeling?’ is a much more open-ended question that's not as accusatory or intimidating as "What's wrong?"

“When you ask someone ‘what's wrong?’ it puts them in a position that doesn't encourage conversation or doesn't encourage honesty. It gives them an easy position to say "Nothing" or to shrug you off.

“Meanwhile, asking someone ‘how are you feeling?’ will be much more open-ended, is more welcoming, caring and much more likely to lead to an honest answer.

“This is especially true in relationships when your S/O is withholding why they're upset or the fact of whether or not they're actually upset.”

How to open URL in the Youtube app? (iOS) : apple

“In the Safari app, put YouTube into desktop mode, reopen the link, pull down and there should be a banner to open in app. That seems to fix it, at least temporarily.

“Also if it opens in YouTube mobile in safari you can try hitting the 3 dots on the top right then hit desktop.

“Please let me know if this works for you.”

Reddit launches five-day live-streaming test - The Verge
“Reddit is testing out something that, if successful, could help it take on platforms like Twitch and YouTube — live-streaming. The company today announced its first broadcasting tool, which it’s calling the ‘Reddit Public Access Network.’ The software will let eligible users live-stream to a new subreddit called r/pan.

“Users who want to tune into broadcasts can do so directly from the subreddit, but top streams will appear on Reddit’s front page throughout the testing period, according to a blog post. Users will also be able to vote on their favorite stream, similar to Reddit’s upvote system, which will dictate what appears on the homepage.”

YSK - X percent of Y is equal to Y percent of X. So, if you want to find out what 7% of 50 is, you could instead find out what 50% of 7 is, which is 3.5. This means that 7% of 50 is also equal to 3.5. : YouShouldKnow
(On calculating percentages:)
“YSK - X percent of Y is equal to Y percent of X. So, if you want to find out what 7% of 50 is, you could instead find out what 50% of 7 is, which is 3.5. This means that 7% of 50 is also equal to 3.5.

“More examples: If you want to find out what 2% of 20 is, do 20% of 2 instead and you’ll get 0.4. So, 2% of 20 also equals 0.4.

“Or, 12% of 25 can be alternatively written out as 25% of 12 instead, which would be 3.

“Explanation: Commutative Property. So, 0.07 times 50 will always equal 50 times 0.07”

My Review of the Aliaz Silent Switches : MechanicalKeyboards
“Knocks browns out of the park, slightly less tactile than Clears (because of scratchiness) and Zealios (because of snappiness), but similar feel to 65g Zealios. In conclusion, these switches are the perfect ones for me because I love tactile switches and the sound of a board affects my experience greatly; hence why I reviewed the switches with noise-cancelling headphones on so I don’t get biased (also why I never get around building a board of Zealios). With the price tag of $0.50 each as well, I can safely recommend these as a good alternative to tactile switches that doesn’t break the bank and doesn’t attract glares when typing in an uppity law library. I look forward to building a board with these, which I could have right now if kbdfans didn’t mess up my order (again). sigh Sorry for the salt fellas.”

It’s a bit of work, but It’s been wonderful to have kittens in the house!

“• has an extra radio, for a double dose of 5 GHz awesomeness
“• has a better LED
“• has better thermals (so it can keep the hammer down for longer)
“• has a better power supply
“• has better RF design (so the radios are both more sensitive, and have better antennas, giving better performance with everything else being equal)
“• has 802.11ac Wave 2 support, so can do things like MU-MIMO and explicit beamforming
“• has better noise immunity, so it punches through a crowded channel better
“• supports Thread, for ultra-low-power IoT clients
“• has a lower noise floor, so can hear quieter clients
“• generally a bunch of other hardware improvements
“and most critically of all, from my point of view at least,
“• was designed as a platform, rather than a box; we made two different devices- the second generation eero and the eero Beacon- and they both run the exact same firmware.
“There’s also a bunch of software improvements we’ve made, though we brought those to all the eeros, not just the second generation.”

Any safe websites to buy body jewelry? : piercing
“I’m wondering if there are any reputable, safe, affordable websites to purchase quality body jewelry? My piercing shop is far away from where I live and I’d like to be able to shop online for new jewelry if anyone has recommendations”

And among some recommendations from the comments:
“I’m a fan of steelnavel.com for jewelry by reputable manufacturers. They autoclave and individually seal every item they send, and take no returns on opened packages. bodyartforms is also pretty good, but steelnavel stuff gets to me super fast when it’s in stock since we’re both on the west coast of the US.”
