2023.05.28 02:12 ilovelegosand314 Reverse Proxied services accessed locally

Hello all!
My google-fu is failing me and I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I am wondering how to access my services directly that are being hosted on a Synology. I have heimdall, swag, sonarr, radarr and such running in docker. I have a google domain and DDNS linked. I can access everything locally and from the internet just how it is all intended to do. My internet was having an outage and I was not able to resolve I could of course still do the IP:Port manually, but I realized that when I am using my computer and accessing my services that are running on my Synology, I am going out to the internet and back when they are on the same network. I have a Unifi Dream machine router and a Pi-Hole setup as well. So I feel like I have all the tools I need to do what I am trying to do.

So to summarize, when I am at home, how do I access my sonarr and such by a "direct" LAN connection, while still mantaining that I can access it over the internet with my domain and reverse proxy?

Thanks all for any advice!

EDIT 1: Thank you for the suggestions! In all my experimentation, I had forgotten that I had put in some local dns entries into Pi-Hole and set a side pc to point to it. when I go to it does direct to the Synology, but to the DSM portal. My Unifi is the one that is catching the traffic coming from the outside to sent to the Synology on port 81/444 which docker-swag catches to send to the right services.
It seems like my pi-hole is doing the right thing, but my Synology wants to redirect the port 80/443 to send to it's login portal.
Sounds like I need a local dns with ports. Or if someone knows how to build the rules in Unifi for local traffic to send to a port. I was just looking at it but can't figure out what to put where to send all local traffic destined to that IP:Port.

Thanks again all!

2023.05.28 02:00 Senior-Gene3955 What movies/franchises from the sci-fi genre did you did you find later in life, while others knew them way better? And which did you find earlier in your life considering your age?

Being born right at the beginning of the 90s outside of the series you'd think I'd have known Star Trek inside and out, same with Star Wars....but especially with Star Wars I didn't catch up until my mid 20's, personal choice after only seen the prequels. Which mind you I didn't "mind" but nothing to make me sit through 9+ films. Star Trek however became an addiction movie wise, then I was shocked when I learned films like Final Frontier wasn't in the normal of being considered "trekkie" enough or just good in any-way. Btw at that point in life I had seen Original Series and TNG in their completion. Anywho - Alien(s) and Terminator were my childhood franchises, my mother hated the f bomb but allowed cable so I was lucky on that - sadly from an adult perspective I must not have really known much as so much was edited out, to the point so was their stories. Forward in time to 2003 and I was let down that Alien was "dead" (the internet even then didn't put much trust in AvP) and Terminator 3 was a disaster (except I kinda liked what I saw at age 13-20 years later at age 33 its ok too). But yeah Alien/Terminator really got me into the genre of sci-fi but mysteriously they borderline on horror, which I know is obvious but I at the time say 1998 when I saw them on cable didn't see that. Odd child I guess. Also as far as TV shows I was always - still am an X-Files kid/person.

2023.05.28 00:34 Professional_Put220 Can we take a moment to appreciate how many amazing license plate designs we have available in Oregon?

I’ve been doing some internet sleuthing into other states’ license plate offerings and Oregon is far and away the best. Most states have one main design and a maybe a couple of slightly altered recolorings of that. Here’s my summary of some of our neighboring states’ options:
California: The state name on a solid color background. Alternatives are the same concept in different colors (whoohoo)
Washington: at least they have a design of something from their state in the photo (Mt Rainier) but it’s ugly. If you don’t like that, they’ve got animals that look like they were pasted on top of MS PowerPoint backgrounds.
Idaho: What might have been a beautiful mountain scape but it’s been washed out by red white and blue (metaphorical for the reality of their state?) or there’s one with a potato
Nevada: Actually a pretty good standard plate, but that’s the only option
Now in Oregon we’ve got 7-8 really well designed and beautiful options that also reflect the landscape and culture of our state.
The standard plate: I know it’s everywhere so you kinda ignore it, but take a closer look at itnext time you get a chance. The colors are beautiful. It’s symmetrical but too much. It looks like Oregon but in a general sense, and the tree fits so nicely between the numbers
Share the road: Pretty cool if you like to bike. Also very fitting since we’re one of the most bike friendly states.
Crater lake: I liked the old design a bit better, but the new one is still solid and showcases our most famous natural feature
Wine Country, Salmon (new one), Gray Whale, Smoky the Bear, Watch for wildlife: All striking, unique and nice to look at
The new cultural plate: This one is so cool. It’s Oregon art with smaller images that have been incorporated into the landscape of the state. The mountains look great and the setting sun over the ocean is a really nice touch. This is a new frontier for plate design and I challenge you to find anywhere else on earth that’s doing this.
So yeah we’ve got some cool plates. And if you looked at all those options and thought “nah, give me pacific wonderland” then… uh… maybe you’d like California? haha

2023.05.27 23:21 murdythefrog I wrote my own rendition of Eminem's "Stan" about my favorite DBD twitch streamer (very long read but worth it)

So last night, I was watching my favorite DBD streamer, Robokyle (best Huntress in the world btw), and requested for him to play Stan by Eminem during his stream. I *JOKINGLY* said I wanted to pick a song that accurately depicted my feelings about him and his streams, so Stan it was.
BTW, check out his Huntress play at (He streams most nights around 8-9 PM EST
A few Adderall later, my brain started churning, and I said "fuck it, lets customize the lyrics for RoboKyle", and an hour later here we are:
Dear Kyle, I tweeted you but you still ain't replying
I left my twitter, my snapchat and IG at the bottom
I left you two comments in the autumn, you must notve got em
There probably was an outage on Discord or something
Sometimes I @ you in the wrong server when I jot'em
But fuck it man, what's been up man, how's your community?
My twitch is growing too, I'm about to be a streamer
If I grow a following, guess what I'm gonna call them?
Imma name them Kyle, silly
I saw the stream about your Billy, I'm sorry
I had a friend who got gen rushed by survivors who weren't even swf
I know you hear this every day, but I'm your biggest subscriber
I even saw the streams you did back on your first internet provider
I got a YouTube channel full of your 4K's and eliminations, you believe?
I like the games you play as the Nurse, that shit was phat
Anyways I hope you see this man, @ me back
Just to chat, truly yours, your biggest sub, this is Steve
Dear Kyle, you still ain't replied or retweeted, I hope you have a chance
I ain't mad, I just think it's fucked up you don't acknowledge your fans
If you didn't want to talk to me after the stream
You didn't have to, but you could've given a shout out to Cashew
Thats my little friend man, he's only 15 years old
We waited during your internet outage for you
For four hours, and you just said no
That's fucked up man, you're like his favorite Huntress
He wants to play killer just like you, man, he watches you more than I do
I ain't mad at though, I just don't like being overlooked by you
Remember when you streamed on Facebook Live?
You said if I followed you, you'd follow back
See, I'm just like you in a way
I never play the Knight neither
He used to always get gen rushed and be an M1 killer
I can relate to what you say during your DBD panels
So when I have a shitty day, I open up your channel
Cause I don't really got shit else
So that shit helps when I'm hella bored
I even got a bot with your notifications in my own discord
Sometimes I even throw axes to see how much survivors bleed
It's like adrenaline, their downings is such a hardcore flex for me
See every killer you play makes it look easy, and I respect you cause you own it
My subscribers are jealous because I watch your streams 24/7
But they don't follow you like I follow you. Kyle, no one does
They don't know what it was like for streamers like us starting off
You gotta swf with me man, ill be the biggest sub you'll ever lose
Sincerely yours, Steve
P.S. we should stream together too
Dear Mr-I'm-Too-Good-To-Tweet-Or-Sub-To-My-Fans
This will be the last message I ever write your ass
I'm on Youtube right now, saying racist shit to all my followers
Hey Kyle, I drank a pot of peepoSusCoffee, you dare me to go live
You know the song by Kanye West "Jail"
About the guy who could've saved the other guy from getting banned
But didn't, then Ye saw it all, then streaming on Mixer he found him
That's kinda how it is, you could've rescued me from getting banned
Now it's too late, I'm on 300mg of Adderall, now I'm wired
And all I wanted was a lousy shoutout or to promote my twitch handle
I hope you know I deleted all my comments on your YouTube channel
I loved you Kyle, we could've streamed together, think about it
You ruined it now, I hope you can't launch DBD and rage about it
And when you rage, I hope you can't stream and cry about it
I hope your community abandons you
And you can't go live without me
See Kyle, shut up bitch, I'm tryna type
Hey Kyle, that's my subscribers trying to DM me
But I didn't block their accounts, I just put them on mute, see I ain't like you
Cause if they unsubscribe, they'll suffer more and then deactivate their accounts too
Well, gotta go, I'm almost permabanned now
Oh shit, I forgot, how am I supposed to stream now

Dear Steve, I meant to @ you sooner, but I just been busy
I'm sorry if I didn't see your comments, I must've missed you
Don't think I did that shit intentionally just to diss you
But what's this shit about how you like to tweet racist shit too?
I see that shit as flaming, dawg, how fucked up is you?
You got some issues Steve, I think you need some counseling
To help your ass from getting cancelled when you get overstimulated some
And what's this shit about us meant to stream together
That's the type of shit'll make me not want to swf together
I really think you and your subs need each other
Or maybe you just need to stream to them better
I hope you read this DM, I just hope it reaches you in time
But before you get your twitch banned, I think you'll be doing just fine
I think you just need to chill a little, I'm glad I inspire you, but Steve
Why are you so madge?
Try to ponder, I do want you as a subscriber
I just don't want you to do some bannable shit
I seen this one tweet on Twitter a couple weeks ago that made me sick
Some dude was cracked out and got his Twitch banned
And had his YouTube linked to his channel
And they showed his sponsorships and partners
And on his Twitch they found a threatening recording, but didn't say who it was directed to
Come to think about..his handle was...
It was you..

2023.05.27 18:58 Lonely-Discount4735 The Ultimate Guide to Choosing and Installing a Home Backup Generator

Home backup generators can provide much-needed power during a blackout. Whether you live in an area prone to storms, earthquakes, or any other natural disasters or need a reliable source of energy for your home, a backup generator is an essential investment. However, choosing the right generator and installing it can be challenging. Here, we'll provide you with the ultimate guide to choosing and installing a home backup generator.

What is a Home Backup Generator?

A home backup generator is a device that automatically provides power when there is a blackout. It is different from portable generators, which require manual intervention to start it and often need to be fueled by gasoline. Home backup generators are stationary and powered by natural gas or propane, and they are designed to start automatically once there is a power outage.

Why Consider Home Backup Generators?

There are numerous reasons why you should consider a home backup generator, but the most important one is that they provide peace of mind. A blackout can happen at any time, and they can last for days. With a backup generator, you can continue using your household appliances, stay connected to the internet, and keep your family cool or warm, depending on the season. In addition, a backup generator can help protect your home and its contents.

Types of Home Backup Generators

There are two main types of home backup generators: standby generators and portable generators.

Standby Generators

A standby generator is a permanent solution that can power your home during a power outage. Standby generators run on either liquid propane or natural gas and are installed outside of your home on a concrete pad. They are connected to your home's electrical system, and when there is a blackout, the generator automatically kicks in, providing power until the grid returns.

Portable Generators

A portable generator is a temporary solution that can only provide power to a few appliances or devices. It is powered by gasoline and needs to be manually started. Portable generators typically come with wheels for easy movement, making them the best option for outdoor activities or camping. However, they are not suitable for powering your entire home during a blackout.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Home Backup Generator

Here are the factors you should consider when choosing a home backup generator:

Power Requirements

The first and most important consideration is how much power you need. The generator's power is measured in watts, and you need to know the power rating of the appliances and devices you want to power. A typical home may require a generator with between 6,000 to 22,000 watts of power.

Fuel Type

Most backup generators run on either propane or natural gas. Propane is more expensive than natural gas but is more reliable and cleaner. Natural gas is more affordable but may be unavailable in areas without a supply line.


You need to consider where you plan to install the generator. Installing a generator too close to your home can be hazardous, while installing it too far can reduce its efficiency.


Backup generators are a significant investment, and you want to ensure that you have a warranty that covers maintenance, repairs, and replacements. Ideally, you should opt for a warranty that covers at least five years.

Installation Process

While the installation process will depend on the type of generator you choose and your home's electrical setup, here's an overview of what to expect:

Foundation and Placement

The first step is to install a concrete pad where the generator will sit. The concrete pad should be level to ensure that the generator is stable.


Your home backup generator will need to be connected to your home's electrical panel. This process is done by a licensed electrician to ensure that it meets local codes and safety standards.

Fuel Source

If you choose natural gas, you'll need to connect a fuel line from the generator to the meter. If you choose propane, you'll need to install a propane tank and connect it to the generator.

Final Thoughts

home backup generators are an investment that provides peace of mind and security. Choosing the right generator and having it installed by certified professionals is essential. Consider your household power requirements, fuel type, location, and warranty. It is also important to understand the installation process and any permits required. With the right backup generator, you can rest assured that your home and family will be protected during a power outage.

2023.05.27 13:54 IliacatJoke I am in my 30s, make $95,000, live in Sydney, work in IT and this week I paid my Obstetrician

Apologies this is late, I completely lost track of the date/time difference!
Disclaimer: I am very grateful to have had a lot of parental assistance over the years and also have serious mental health diagnosis, both of these flavour my money choices heavily (e.g. private healthcare and lack of car loan/insurance)
I am also heavily pregnant so please excuse any baby brain related errors!

Retirement Balance: $62,000
Equity: $35k of a $680k property, we bought our 3 bedroom apartment last year using my parents’ equity, so no deposit was required.
Savings account balance: 20k - a lot of health/baby related costs have come out of it lately!
Credit card debt (and how you accumulated it): $800 which I pay off each monthly pay, if it wasn’t for the grocery rebates I’d consider getting rid of it.
Student loan debt (HECS): BA in passion/fun area, then IT/Accounting degree, very proud to say I am down to my final $19k!
My husband P earns around $90,000 in healthcare but can be more with overtime, he has around $30k in super and his HECS debt is due to be wiped out following our recent election so won’t be including that.
Section Two: Income
Income Progression: I had been working in retail full time after loving full time work instead of uni, until my transition to IT so started as a retail casual worker on $30k 10 years ago and changed to IT 6 years ago, jumping from $55k to $95k in that time, mostly through promotions, 1 company merger and 2 company changes.
Main Job Monthly Take Home: I am paid $5200 monthly and P is paid fortnightly at $2400 to $3000 depending on his shifts. Both our pay excludes tax, HECS payment and medicare levy, his pay includes salary packaging.
Section Three: Expenses
Mortgage: 3150 (locked rate until next year, pending interest rise)
Savings contribution: $500
Donations: $25-75 a month mostly to various MH organisations
Electric/Council/Water: 400 (we’re currently overpaying ahead of Mat leave)
Internet/our mobile phones: $320 (we’re currently overpaying ahead of Mat leave)
Subscriptions (Newspapers (NYT, SMH), Youtube, Xbox, online backups/cloud, VPN, pregnancy app, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Bitlocker, UberOne, Spotify Duo): $110
Private Health insurance: $420 for Top CoveTop Extras + pregnancy
Car insurance: covered in my parents plan, our car was a gift from my parents
Regular therapy: Psychologist $220/fortnight and psychiatrist $280/quarter
Transfer to P for things like fuel: $500
7 Day Money diary:
I’m staring at the ceiling while the baby kicks my kidney, P snoring next to me, contemplating my existence. I’m trying not to start ‘the list’ run through in my head (buy milk, have I booked my next blood test, where is my winter coat, etc).
Give up on sleep and get up for the day, I make a weak coffee for me and a regular coffee for P (I like the taste of coffee, weak lets me have 2-3 cups throughout the day without hitting my pregnant caffeine limit) and start packing up my lunch and bags for work. It’s OB day so I won’t be in the office until 10am today.
After a dance party in the car we’re at the OB, all good news and another list of final scans and tests, we’re now in the downhill run! I pay for my last half of (private) OB management fee since we’re passed 28 weeks now. ($2500 (Medicare rebate soon: $580))
Stop at a bakery to treat myself before work, danishes are the breakfast of champions! ($12.00)
Last vendor meeting of the day, and i’m ready to take a nap. I’ve decided to spend the rest of the afternoon working on my handover document, I’ve only got 8 weeks to go before Mat leave!
Text my psych to convert our Saturday afternoon to a Zoom call, I’m not up for extra waddling to the train this week.
Spend the train ride home working on my crackhead baby spreadsheet (colour-coded, multi tabbed, shopping list, meal prep list, etc) and researching baby items.
P meets me at the station to grab my bags and we walk home, well he walks ahead and I move at a more stately pace.
Crawl into bed with a bowl of pasta and Ambulance UK on the iPad, kitten at my feet, older cat at my hip. Eventually P awkwardly maneuvers around blankets, my pregnancy pillow and cats.
Spontaneously adding to my online chemist wishlist of things I need for post birth and hospital bag. Cats and P grumble when I once again get up to pee, pregnancy feels so glamorous now.
Total: 2512.00 (pending MR)
Wander around the apartment with coffee in hand and contemplate the nursery layout options, I’ll measure it all tonight and make a floor plan so I can visualise it better. After boarding the train, I scroll through my due date Bump Group on Discord and catch up on the topics, many of the mum’s are NA based so the chat pops off 12am - 4am my time. I message a few friends and my bestie spams me with tiktoks. We tell a few dark MH jokes and I try not to laugh on the train.
Arrive at the office, coffee number 2 in hand and I jump into a few Teams chats with various groups, including my manager and counterparts in another city’s office. They’re in a different time zone ahead of us so they flag any issues that started earlier our time and I’m grateful.
Where the hell did today go? I’ve barely left my desk and can’t believe the amount of firefighting I’ve been doing today, following up vendors, coordinating fallback solutions for outages, soothing ruffled feathers and talking team off the ledge in stressful situations.
I’ve definitely not eaten enough today and decide to place an ubereats order instead of raiding my mini fridge stash - Subway it is! ($18.97)
I spend my lunch break reading my latest pregnancy/birth book (The Complete Australian Guide to Pregnancy and Birth) and it’s honestly my favourite one I’ve read so far. I’m also a big fan of the podcast the authors run. I have queued up this week’s episode for the trip home as the mum featured has a similar mental health issue to me and I’m excited to hear her journey, also to get ideas for things to raise with my care team.
Security protocols kick us out of the office building and I am thrilled to escape! P picks me up from work since he’s off today, and my hips and feet are very grateful. There’s a quick stop in at Coles for pizza ingredients, milk and the very essential choc chip waffles. ($46.94)
Once we’re home P feeds the cats and unpacks while I get started on the bases, my birthday present last month was a KitchenAid and at the rate I’m going the cost per use is coming out pretty damn good! I leave the base to rise, pop my feet up and do my nightly blood pressure (127/82) which I log into my health app. I also add my weight from yesterday’s OB appointment and I'm thrilled to say I’ve stopped losing weight now the suspected HG has finally settled.
Take several brag photos of my pizzas #homemade and settled in front of the TV with blankets, footrest and P. I do send P back to the kitchen twice for serviettes and my water bottle, but once I’m settled, I’m not bloody moving.
I queue up the latest Top Chef (International All Stars Season 20) on Plex and get ready to support my fellow Aussie! P grumbles about my fixation with Top Chef, but all he gets is side eye in response. It’s a great episode for creativity, he even admits the winning dish is impressive. He vanishes the second the episode’s over for his office and a rewatch of the extended, super, mega, special edition of The Hobbit. I move on to Ambulance UK and annoy him over text with questions about the medical terminology being used.
Bedtime with a heat pack as my back is killing me! I try to convince P to come to bed and hold it against me since bubs is not allowing stomach laying anymore.
Success! P is helpfully holding it against me while I finish the episode and scroll the Iconic. Oh no! There’s now Stanley cups on there, I add it to my wishlist and promise myself I’ll think about it first. I want to also be a chic put together Stanley cup girlie!
Total: 65.91
Back scrolling the Iconic and on a hunch check my credits (after rage returning maternity clothes a few weeks ago) and bingo there’s a credit there. I play around with wishlist items and stacking discounts, there’s a pale pink theme developing between the pink pregnancy overalls and the Stanley cup.
Screw it, I’m ordering (10 points if you can guess what room of the apartment I made this order from) and it’s all due this afternoon except the pregnancy belt I've been grumbling about wanting. ($14.95)
P brings me coffee, the kitten and the statement that he’s approved our Medicare Safety Net balance (he’s our primary family member) which means the rest of our refunds will be great going forward!! I’m very excited for 90% back on out of pocket costs for most medical things from now until December. Between my mental health and pregnancy I’ve beaten my normal record of September for the max you can pay OOP.
I’m sitting on the floor in the nursery trying to sort out piles of tiny clothes and remember to get P to help me off the floor before he heads to work. I head to the kitchen and start the bread process, I make our bread from scratch every weekend and the KitchenAid has made this sooo much easier. I decide one x1 wholemeal seed bread for P and x1 rosemary focaccia for me. Once they’re rising I head off to bed for a nap before therapy this afternoon.
I made myself some tea and washed my face to prepare for therapy as I woke up from my nap feeling like I was on another planet. I head into my office, no no now the nursery, damn I slightly tear up at the thought of my nice office now being a small desk in the corner. Well that can be another topic for my session today!
My psych and I go over all of the last 3 weeks worth of appointments with my health team and what my next steps are. I need to sort out my postpartum stay referral and lock in when I’m starting my top up meds. We talk through some of my work frustrations (not clear cut sexism but a level of obliviousness some of male managers are showing) and how I’m tracking mood/symptoms wise across the pregnancy. We’re both very aware that the final few weeks of pregnancy and the accompanying hormones can cause serious issues, so we go over warning signs and coping mechanisms. We go over the difference between ‘normal pregnancy feelings’ and my mental health condition feelings.($220)
Session done and my bread has all risen nicely despite the cold weather, I start the baking process and contemplate dinner. P is at work until 10pm so I’m on my own, which means all the Top Chef reruns and Ambulance UK my heart desires! I have a craving for spätzl so dig that out of the cupboard and defrost the schnitzel.
Iconic delivery!! I am officially a Stanley cup owner! I ordered the original, not the soft matte because Tiktok told me to, so I’m hoping I’ve made the right choice. Something about cold water through a straw just hits the spot. My glittery Starbucks cup looks on in disgust.
P finds me at my desk working on my spreadsheet of crazy, I mean baby, and is impressed but also too tired to focus on it now. I hear him calmly explain to the kitten that he can’t join him in the shower but he isn’t entirely successful.
We get into bed and P puts headphones in so I can drift off faster (or because I threatened more Ambulance UK? We’ll never know!).
Total: $234.95 (pending MR)
And I’m up early again, my passenger is apparently an early riser these days which leads to me looking down and asking for more sleep “pleeeeease!” I try 37 positions and try to get comfy before finally drifting off again.
I steal P’s dressing gown (mine’s now got an awkward gap due to the bump) and start the coffee process, the kitten joins me after finding a piece of plastic to pinball around the kitchen with, I am not coordinated enough these days to dodge him so I remove him and plastic to the living room.
I’m craving an egg muffin so I cook some sausages, eggs and toast english muffins and enjoy a mindless tiktok scroll while I eat.
I’m surprisingly tired after doing nothing all morning and head back to bed for a nap. I really hope the tiredness isn’t a sign my illness from last week is back! I’ve got a support group meeting in a few hours so I set an alarm.
I join the support group Zoom and immediately hear about how many people are sick or recovering from some flu or cold thing. There’s a lot of bugs going around at the moment! I meet some new people who have the same disorder or same ‘family’ of disorders as me and I update the group on my pregnancy journey. I really bond with 2 of the new ladies and I offer my email up to both to keep in touch before next week’s meeting.
I’m happily browsing Facebook Marketplace for baby things when Mum calls, she’s been shopping for baby (uh oh) and is excited to tell me about it. Amazingly she’s bought a bedside bassinet very similar to the one I was planning on buying secondhand and a safari themed lamp for the nursery. She’s also ended up with a high chair for their house on the coast and a bunch of themed fabric for swaddles, pillows, etc.
Total: 0.00 thanks Mum!
I wake with my alarm for once, which would be odd except for how awful I feel. I end up deciding to call in sick, the flu thing that knocked me around until early last week appears to be back. Pregnancy means lots of cold/flu meds etc are not an option so I can’t soldier on. I alert my manager, set my team up with urgent tasks, chuck my OOO on and crawl back into bed.
A few things debit like SMH and Youtube (accounted for in monthly expenses above)
I open my phone to a flurry of emails on my personal account, OH! It’s healthcare cover day! We have finished all our waiting periods and the beacons are lit! Let the floodgates of services and information begin! Our hospital and health fund both email to welcome me to their online learning platforms.
A nice lady from our health fund calls to give me the spiel. I'd normally be wary about what all these amazing services are going to cost, but it’s all covered! She tells me about the learning platform (Nourish), the sleep clinic calls I’ll get after the baby's arrival and the welcome pack I’m going to be mailed. I get my login details as soon as we hangup, another fun thing to explore tonight once I’m feeling human again.
P is amused by how excited I am for all this information, he does caution me against over planning/over researching which is something I’ve been working on with my psych. I struggle to find a good balance between planning for problems and over planning to the point of stress. It’s a work in progress. I suspect I’ll always have issues with control/over planning.
I’ve napped most of the day, dealt with 1 urgent work issue and am now getting access to the hospital’s learning platform (Cradle). I'm grateful they’re short 5-7 minute long videos so put some on the iPad while I make tea and toast before deciding to tackle the nursery again.
Mum calls about more baby things - they’ve bought me a change table!? I’m slightly annoyed then I’m thrilled - it’s a brand I like that’s normally $400 ish for $30 at auction yesterday (a Sunday afternoon family hobby). They've just collected it, they’re going to sand and paint it for me in a nice green for the safari nursery. Another thing ticked off the baby spreadsheet.
Dinner tonight was heated up leftovers, I’m too tired for cooking.
Hmm blood pressure is high, I hope this is just sickness related and log it in my app.
Bed time! Despite sleeping all day I am exhausted and pass out almost immediately.
Total: 0.00 thanks again Mum!
I’m in the office however I cannot tell you what I’ve done today, it’s all a blur and when I sit down with my ipad to make notes for this money diary my brain goes blank. I scroll through my sent emails and can see I’ve sent 26 emails (herding a difficult vendor, setting up meetings for later in the week, submitting my sick leave for yesterday and setting up a new starter orientation). I make another coffee and realise the mini fridge hasn’t been restocked (because I am the one that stocks it each week sigh). I jump online and do a grocery order - yogurt, cheese, salami, tomato paste, sliced bread, babybel cheese, apples and several juices) (52.00) it’s due in next 2 hours.
I make myself toasted sandwiches and try not to eat the entire packet of babybel. My work lunch group tells hilarious stories from their level of the office and it’s a nice escape from my level’s workload.
I send off my psychiatrist's referral for my private postpartum care stay (1-3 weeks long) and check it’s all covered with my health care fund (it is!). The private place I’ll be staying at calls me to check in, advise me of next steps and to give me my tentative booking date of 1 week after birth. I’ve got a spare 20 mins so do my intake assessment with them over the phone and get the all clear to be accepted in a few weeks. I’ll get another assessment 2-4 days after I give birth just to make sure I’m still a good candidate. I look over the welcome pack, what to bring lists and advice on partner overnight stays that all hit my email when I hang up. I forward the relevant bits to P and jump back into work.
An afternoon of meetings meant I did no deep/focus work or work on my handover, but I accept that and move on. I top up my Opal card for the week (50.00) via the app and it’s loaded by the time I’m tapping on the train. I’d normally account for this in the expenses up top but my train trips are very sporadic right now due to pregnancy waddle, so I’ve been carpooling with coworkers and P has been collecting me if his shifts line up along with the occasional UbeShebah.
I’m pinged regarding a site issue and it looks like the site is down. I jump on via my phone and iPad while on the train, I also start my time tracker for out of hours work. I scrap the conference call between my team and the vendor at 6pm and instruct the site to rollover to fallback mode, my team member gets them online again. I email my manager a quick update and switch back to tiktok scrolling. I’m really enjoying not having to fight for a seat most train trips now since I’m so visibly pregnant!
P meets me at the station again, is horrified that I’m dragging 3 books, several cups to wash, my coat (I overheated on the train) and my iPad around in multiple bags, he snatches it all and we start the walk home.
He’s made bolognese and it is the best smell to walk into after a cold day! I smother mine in cheese and prop my feet up to depuff. Then I puppy dog eyes at him and he agrees to Ambulance UK, we’re now in the London seasons and I’m loving the big city vibes. He still cringes at the medical sounds, but takes the time to explain how these patients would be treated at his hospital after their ambulance trips. I enjoy his commentary and it adds a background I would never normally know about.
I take my blood pressure and it’s high for the 2nd night, I’m a bit concerned but trying not to stress. It’s not 160/100 aka get your butt to ED but it’s still over normal. I log it in my health app and make a note to monitor it and call the OB if it’s up again tomorrow.
I message a friend about his opinion of epidurals (since he does them all day) and ask for the dumbed down reality check, he’s been an amazing support this pregnancy so I know he’ll give me a great answer, and he replies back with all the pros/cons as well as the common issues and how they get fixed. He reminds me to ask my OB since I’ve got pregnancy hypertension, it’s likely I would almost benefit from that common side effect and I make a note in my phone to ask at the next appointment.
Total: $102.00
Coffee, kitten pats, older cat snuggles and then a small cry because I forgot to wash my preferred pregnancy leggings. I thankfully remember I’ve got an onsite vendor meeting today so don’t dress like a potato! I still wear Stan Smith’s but a cute knit dress and scarf up top so I look presentable. I bathe in embryolisse cream after washing my face (fun pregnancy fact - you can develop dry skin patches that make you look like a lizard!) and actually put some makeup on (Charlotte Tilbury base, YSL touche elcat, innisfree powder, lancome mascara and CT blush) followed by Replica’s By the Fireplace perfume. Ready for battle!
On the train scrolling through the morning reports, I’m relieved to see all systems are reporting green after a few small hiccups yesterday. I move onto discord and catch up the overnight conversations in bump group.
Quick catchup with my team and then I spend the morning preparing for the big cross time zone/country catch up with all IT team leads also updating my WIP tracker. I obviously then forget to save it and rage stomp off to the kitchen to make conciliation coffee.
I rage shop for KitchenAid accessories but don’t actually buy anything and my manager comforts me over teams.
I’m wrapping up in person site meetings to see a bunch of messages from P, he’s grocery shopping and querying baby wipe brands. (One of the best tips I got was to buy a pack of nappies and wipes each grocery trip to build your stockpile so it’s not such a shock, since newborns go through 10 nappies a day!). I reply but I’m a bit late and he finishes in Aldi, Coles and the butchers for the next fortnight (389.23). I’m getting very over this cost of living price increase on basic things like milk. He’s a smart shopper so I know that he didn’t overdo it.
I’ve taken my blood pressure a few times today and it keeps coming back high. I ring the OB’s office and book in for tomorrow morning (spoiler: my blood pressure meds are increased and I’m asked to check in with my pregnancy nephrologist sooner)
What the hell is this debit? Oh it’s the meal delivery service I forgot to suspend this week, guess we’re going to be a bit overstocked on food this week. I’m just going to class this as idiot/baby brain tax. (69.95)
P collects me and I have a small cry in the carpark, he’s had the baby capsule installed and driven to collect me with it so I can see it. Things are starting to feel very real now! I practice removing it and carrying it up to the apartment when we get home.
Leftover bolognese for dinner and we do separate screen time. I head to my computer after a bit to review my spreadsheet, since P has smashed out a bunch of things today in Baby Bunting. Nappy bin, capsule + install and baby bath are all ticked off! I get the receipts off our emails to log the costs (375.16)
Mexican bowls for dinner and we decide to try out the new RPA reboot that’s recently come back to TV (from the 90s!). I honestly hate every minute of it, the talking heads are really cringe and after the gritty realism of Ambulance UK (and Nurses Down Under) I can’t cope with it. We switch over to Ambulance UK after 1 episode and discuss deleting the rest. I was also really disappointed by how “doctor focussed” it was to the point where the nurses and allied health professionals (physios, ambos, etc) were cut out of certain shots, but you could still see their hands or shoes, that’s just not reality in Australian healthcare they’re the people patients see 90% of the time! Okay getting off my soapbox now.
I start my out of hours tracker and handle an issue for a site 3 hours behind me, in the end the onsite team and I get our part done, one of the vendors does not. We decide to tackle it tomorrow and a flick off a complaint to our account manage regarding this vendor rep. I notice a few of my counterparts are all in a teams call in their timezone and realise they must be cutting over a new system since it’s so late their time. I make a note to not bother them first thing tomorrow since they’ll likely all be start late.
Yep blood pressure is still high, so I’m glad I’ve got the appointment booked for the first thing tomorrow. P takes it for me twice just in case I’m doing something wrong with the cuff but unfortunately it’s still high. I’ve finished my new pregnancy book and I would recommend it to any Aussie mums or dads to be out there, P even flicks through it.
Why are both cats trying to sit on me? Oh we forgot to feed them! I sort them out and all is well again in their world.
My glorious bed calls me to me and I bundle myself up in the blankets, scroll through tiktok and happy cry at birth videos.

Besides the health care costs, this is a pretty normal week for me! I’m obviously thrilled to hit the Medicare max as this makes things so much easier with health care costs. I feel really relieved to know all my future costs are being covered by private health or what isn't is at a higher rebate now. Seeing my hospital estimate last week (before private health covers 95%) was really confronting and made me briefly reconsider my choice to go private, but the things that are now covered by health fund are amazing and worth nearly $30k over the first 3 months of the baby's life (especially if we end up needing special care nursery).
I’m pretty impressed about how many wtf and ffs I say in real life that I’ve removed from this diary. I find the Aussie approach to swearing can be a bit relaxed haha, so I did my best for you guys!
The impact of the baby brain is very real, aside from mental blanks at work, I had to check things like my subscriptions and ask P a few times, since so much of it is bpay and auto-debit, I don’t pay attention to it! There’s a few charges we have always had historically like tolls and ubereats that we’ve cut way back over the past few months.
I'm also considering a "what it costs to have a private baby in Aus" as well as a follow up in a few months once I've settled into Maternity Leave life (minimum wage, not my current salary) because tracking was fascinating and I'm a data hoarder.
Happy to answer any questions in the comments if I've explained something poorly.

2023.05.27 10:50 ithrewakidinthewell ASUS ZenWiFi AX Constantly dropping

Hey guys, my family has a pair of ASUS ZenWiFi AX mesh routers, and they've been great. We recently replaced one due to it dying and over the last week it's been constantly dropping out.
I'm not talking about the mesh part of it, but rather the one connected to the modem. At least probably 5-6 times per day it drops and goes red, restarting has a 50/50 shot of fixing it. I've tried unplugging and replugging cables and frankly I'm at a loss for what could be happening. I'm fairly sure it's not an NBN (our national internet) issue, as restarting fixes it most of the time (and no outages have been listed).
Any help appreciated!
Edit: I have a crashlog that I'm able to paste if it helps. I have no idea how to read it so it doesn't help me.

2023.05.27 06:34 JeepingTrucker Who can use my radio question

I work as a trucker, and am routinely out of state and away from home. With all the recent talk about Senate sat phones, potential cyber attacks, internet outages, cell network issues and such, it got me to thinking about backup comms. I can't afford 2 satellite phones plus airtime. So, my question is... Can my wife/SO/GF use my vhf/uhf home base station under my callsign to pass a message to me via other ham operators in such an event, or do you think people will not really care at that point?

2023.05.27 04:42 ctbear Internet frequently down late afternoon/early evening

This has been a problem for like a month now. Every day after 3pm, my internet service will stop working and the modem will not receive any signal. I have tried two new modems and they all have the same problem.
I don't know if it's day time temperature or what, but it happens between 3-7pm like 95% of the time. I check the status center and it's always "no outage in my area", though I don't really put any weight on that.
I am really frustrated and it's impacting my work as well (I work from home full time). Any ideas what could be happening?

2023.05.27 04:30 pragmaticpomegranate Lost my 20s, wanting my 30s to be different

I have recently realized I don’t know how to be an adult without alcohol. My 20s were full of blackout drinking every single weekend and casual drinking to a significant buzz almost every single night. This started the summer after I graduated high school and just exacerbated from there. The crowd I was surrounded with (and lived with) all did this and I mistakenly thought this was just how things were supposed to be, and getting to do this was a perk of “adulting”.
After college I was surrounded by several of the same people or found myself with new crowds who had the same mentality. I didn’t even realize how blindsided I was about all of this and was young enough to not truly see or realize the damage I was doing to my body. Looking back it’s crazy to me how much I just drank that (spiked) koolaid.
This continued until my late 20s where I finally started to slow down. I wish I could say it was for noble reasons but I frankly just couldn’t physically handle the hangovers anymore. The shameful, regretful choices and physical detriments should’ve been enough of a wake up call but sadly they weren’t.
The last time I drank to the point of making myself sick was about 6 years ago, last time went out to drink (and blacked out) was over 5 years ago, and last time I got drunk was about 15 months ago. I completely quit when I got pregnant and didn’t drink at all until after. I remember several folks were cheering me on for my first postpartum drink, which part of me wanted, but a significant part of me was upset I was throwing away so many months of sobriety. I ignored that part as much as I could so I didn’t have to deal with the guilt.
Nowadays I drink maybe 1-2x per week at most and never have more than 2 drinks a day. I felt really proud of all of the progress I made and big milestones I’ve achieved in terms of really tampering down. I have zero desire to drink to excess and the thought makes me feel ill. But I’m struggling with getting over this “final frontier” of being totally sober and I don’t know why I can’t commit to this.
I’ve gone for periods without drinking but classified it as a “detox”, “dry January”, etc. I think I’m afraid of failing at completely giving up alcohol so I’ve been hesitant to even try framing it that way. I guess that would mean I might still have a problem and that’s really hard for me to accept.
Edit: meant to also add thanks to this sub, I am so encouraged by everyone here and without all of you I would’ve never had the courage to post any of this, and have to put all of this into words even just for strangers on the internet (or myself). So, thank you.

2023.05.27 03:39 dlgn13 i3 Broadband Outages

My house has been having periodic internet outages for the past few days (around a minute long, several times an hour), and it's really annoying. Anyone else experiencing this or know what's going on? DownDetector suggests that I'm not alone in this, but i3 hasn't sent out any kind of notification about service disruption.

2023.05.26 23:23 followearth Bell decommissions my phone/cable/internet line with no notice.

Be aware! Bell may decommission (as in disconnect) your copper landline with no warning and no notice.
Mid-afternoon on a Sunday in Montreal my phone/cable/internet line went dead. Called Tech support and they told me there were local outages at central, but would I like to schedule a repairman for the next morning to install fibe and a new router – neither of which I need (struck me as odd they would have servicemen standing by).
I said if there were local outages I would prefer to wait for a central fix and called back next AM when still nothing was working. This time Tech Support said oh, the reason your line is dead is that we decommissioned that line on Sunday so would you like to schedule a repairman. Cue irate customer: WTAF! How can you decommission a customer’s fully functioning line and services with no notice. Been a Bell (phone) customer for over 40 years and (until this happened) pay Bell over $2,500 / year (sadly & foolishly) for home services and this is the thanks I get. Just shocked and angry at a practice that that cuts people off from essential services with no warning.
Shopping for alternatives now.

2023.05.26 23:03 smoklessdragon Acacia Crossings Cox lines/Orbitel

I live in Acacia Crossing. A couple weeks ago there were cox trucks and construction crews all up and down the streets putting in their fiber lines.
They did such a great job they hit a water line and I had no water for 4 hours :) but besides the point-
Ive had Orbitel ever since I moved here cause we get a break from the HOA on pricing ($20/month). I’ve never had any problems with Orbitel, no massive outages, etc etc.
Ever since the cox folks did what they did Orbitel’s service has been complete dog 💩. Massive outage began last Friday and the internet goes in and out for several hours at a time. Anyone else having this experience? Acacia crossing community or not doesn’t matter, just whatever division you live in that had cox come by.

2023.05.26 20:25 Adobe-Virus_pc Any way to maximize powersaving on a laptop?

I want to keep my laptop running but barely consume power at all. I want to charge my phone on it in emergency but if i put the laptop in sleep mode it won't charge my phone, i also tried searching on the internet on how to charge my phone on a laptop that is asleep and found that i need to change a setting called "Keep USB ports on while powered off" in the BIOS but didn't find such option, also tried it with device manager where i unchecked USB ports to not turn off when the laptop is off but that still didn't do anything. Today there was a power outage in my area for about 12h and my phone was on 18%, the laptop was 100% so i plugged in my phone and left the laptop running with the display off and got my phone to 65% and the laptop to 55%.

2023.05.26 20:10 CryptographerJolly22 Anyone else having a lot of issues with Cox internet this week?

Cox had an outage last Friday 05/26 which they said was for "emergency maintenance". Since then my internet cuts out randomly. I'm directly wired into my modem/router so it's not a wifi issue. It's also hard to believe it's a hardware issue since my modem/router is pretty new and was working perfectly before the maintenance. If I ping google ( during the intermittent connection window I get about 60% packet loss. I've been through the ringer with several customer service agents and they try to tell me everything looks fine.
Curious if anyone else has been having issues with Cox, especially this last week and if anything worked for them?

2023.05.26 19:08 Liam_Galt Strange behavior on power outage/UPS

Hey folks. I've had a couple of power outages in the last few months and I've noticed some strange behavior when it happens. I've got my server connected to a UPS and graceful shutdown has worked fine.
The issue actually arises when the power outage is resolved before getting to the shutdown point. The web UI ends up totally frozen and unresponsive and when it does load I can see CPU pinned at 100% usage. I can fix the issue by slowly getting to the Docker settings and stopping the Docker service and then restarting it. It seems like at least one of my containers has issues when I get connected to UPS. My best guess is that it has to do with losing internet connectivity and that causes problems somewhere.
The big problem here is I don't actually know of a great way to debug this efficiently. Is there a way to track/log resource usage per-container? Would that tracking even work when the CPU is just spinning? As a backup option, would there be an easy way to stop the Docker service when running on UPS and then restart it after?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
