  • When I was 15, I killed my grandpa
    by /u/EshLad69 on November 21, 2019 at 07:11

    It was a decent while ago, about 12 years, and me and my brother (8) and sister (13) were staying in my grandparents house in Sydney, Australia. (we live in Melbourne) The house was custom built by them, and was two stories, and it was pretty old so the house had a distinctive 'old person' smell to it and about every single floorboards creaked. About three days in, after a long day at the beach, we came home and went to bed. Since I was the oldest, I got a whole room to myself while my siblings had to share one. Anyway, being a teenager my sleep schedule was not the greatest, so I was up until about 1 playing my DS. Suddenly I felt really hungry, so I got up and attempted to get to the kitchen while not arousing suspicion, which was difficult considering how creaky the floorboards were. When I reached the top of the stairs, I was about to step down until I hear my grandpa behind me whisper my name. I was freaked out, as my grandpa was rather strict and hated when people get up in the middle of the night. He approached marousing doubt, but I'll never know. He approached me with a threatening face and his fist clenched, which was was strange for my grandpa as he was always a cheerful person, and as he goes to grab me, I move to the left and give him a slight nudge and he trips on a small groove in the wood and crashes down to the bottom of the stairs. Without thinking, I bolt back to my room, shut the door as quietly as I can and pretend to be asleep. I could hear my grandma and sister rush out of bed to investigate the sound and hear my grandma bloodcurdling scream as she locks eyes with her deceased husband. I stay in bed for another hour or so until my sister comes in and tells me there are police here and how grandpa fell down the stairs and snapped his neck. When I came out of my room the look on everyone's face still haunts me. Soon after I found out that my grandpa took these pills that helped him sleep or something else, which may of made him disoriented or slightly paralized, which in turn would of made him fall, but they also must of made him aggressive as my grandpa would be never acted like that when he was his normal self. To this day, my entire family still believes it was his fault, but I couldn't keep that fucked up secret any longer and had to tell someone. Later today or tomorrow I will be confessing to my parents and my entire family about what actually happened, even if it lands me in hot water. TL;DR: I nudged my grandpa down some stairs and I'm finally going to tell my family. I may or may not update this post, but anyways, thanks Reddit for giving me a place to talk! submitted by /u/EshLad69 to r/confession [link] [comments]

  • Control your computer using your Home Assistant (Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa)
    by /u/iversenMN on October 28, 2019 at 10:34

    (Probably) the easiest way of controlling your computer using your personal assistant. AssistantComputerControl (or ACC for short) is a piece of free, open source software for your computer (Windows only (why?)), that allows you to do all sorts of actions using your voice! Used by _(at time of writing)_ 29437 people spread over 145 countries, the software has been helping people do actions on their computers since December 2017! Here's what you can do with the software: Turn off your computer (shutdown) Restart Lock Open files Turning off your monitors Log out Putting your computer to sleep Muting/unmuting Setting PC volume Pause/unpause PC music "Previous" and "Next" music/video track Show a message box Creating & deleting files Appending text to a file Writing with your voice: "Hey Google | Alexa, write out reddit post" more to come - suggestions very welcome, and almost always implemented Full always up-to-date list found here on the website You can also automate your computer-control rather than executing actions with your voice. As ACC is IFTTT-powered, you can make ACC lock/turn off your computer when you leave the house, open a specific file when you come home, open team-viewer from anywhere for remote-control - there are a lot of possibilities. ​ Download:You can download the latest version of AssistantComputerControl at the ACC website! 🙂 The setup only takes about 5 minutes; after the setup, you won't even notice it's there. ​ How?ACC uses free cloud services and IFTTT to work and for it to remain free-to-use. This means you will have to have a cloud service like Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive installed and running on your PC, and have an IFTTT account. If you're interested in more detail on how ACC works, take a look at this documentation article. ​ Open source, community & more info As said, the project is open source, and can be found on GitHub (not updated as frequently as the official website-version, so don't get the installer from here). Suggestions and bug reports (as well as questions) are always welcome. The main place to do this is the ACC Discord server. This software is for the home-automation community, and all suggestions (that I as the solo-developer have time to do) are added 🙂 Over 50% of all actions come from user-suggestions! ​ I want to emphasize that there are no intentions other than spreading this software to people that can use it - I earn no money from this other than a few donations from people willing to help out with the hosting & domain expenses. It's merely a hobby project, and it's gonna stay that way 🙂 submitted by /u/iversenMN to r/homeautomation [link] [comments]

  • Alternate ending
    by /u/ambooma on October 14, 2019 at 04:58

    Does anyone remember an alternate ending to Farscape, where Aeryn dies and lives as a neural clone in John's head? The only thing I can remember from it is the end scene where Aeryn and John are standing in the hanger and Aeryn says," You wanted to be close to me, this is as close as we can get." ​ I haven't been able to find it as a deleted scene or ending to any episode or anything close to that exchange. ​ I would love to know if this was a real thing I saw or made a memory out of whole cloth. ​ Edit: spelling. submitted by /u/ambooma to r/farscape [link] [comments]

  • [How To] Mute Spotify Ads - Spotify Ad Blocker
    by /u/Foo_01 on October 6, 2019 at 09:59

    DESCRIPTION This simple project will allow you mute (set media volume to 0) the audio when Spotify play an Ad and restore the previous volume level when the music restart. It's very simple but it help me alot, is very frustrating the voice that want force you to buy something while you are relaxing, study, running, sex time, ecc. Some seconds of silence are much better 🙂 How it work? The project intercept the local notification of Spotify and if one of that contain the text "spotify" instead that the name of the song so this is an Ad. The task save the media volume level and mute the media output. - The project not modify the Spotify app, so it's not an hack. - No tasker plugin required. Enjoy the Script Profile: Mute Spotify Ads (52) Event: Notification [ Owner Application:Spotify Title:* Text:* Subtext:* Messages:* Other Text:* Cat:* New Only:Off ] Enter: Volume Media Spotify (53) A1: If [ %evtprm3 ~ Spotify | %evtprm3 ~ spotify ] A2: Variable Set [ Name:%spotifyVolume To:%VOLM Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off Max Rounding Digits:3 ] If [ %VOLM neq 0 ] A3: Media Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off A4: Else A5: Media Volume [ Level:%spotifyVolume Display:Off Sound:Off A6: End If edit: typo submitted by /u/Foo_01 to r/tasker [link] [comments]

  • [HOW TO] App usage stats (aka Digital Wellbeing) in Nova Launcher (optional) and more!
    by /u/Quintaar on September 10, 2019 at 15:04

    Hi all. I couldn't live without the Pixel launcher so I had to switch to Nova Launcher on My Xiaomi Mi 9 (read why I switched from Pixel 3). I wanted my Mi9 to have a proper app drawer. It may not be news to veterans of the Nova Launcher but I ended up using 2 very cool tricks You can assign default apps to launch from folder gestures You can run Tasker Tasks! So I thought I would make "per folder" app usage monitor. It can do: Displays daily app usage data Displays monthly app usage data Uses dynamic values for the timer You can monitor any app you want Assign custom sort for each folder Read more on: https://notenoughtech.com/tasker/folder-based-digital-wellbeing-and-more-tricks-with-nova-launcher!/ This is a hell of a tutorial to go through and understand, but on the plus side, the ready-made files take seconds to set up! Happy Tasking submitted by /u/Quintaar to r/tasker [link] [comments]

  • Criminal deported after sentence finished. No longer has restrictions from his sentence like being in the sex offenders register and no access to social media.
    by /u/ecilamecila on September 2, 2019 at 12:32

    My father received a sentence of 4.5 years for sexually abusing my daughter. His sentence has recently expired and after leaving prison he was taken into immigration custody for deportation. Despite my initial human rights concerns, my issue is not that he is being deported but that he now no longer has to appear on a sex offenders register and that he has none of the restrictions placed in him by the judge like restricted internet access and supervision. These were the things that were put in place when she was 8 years old to make her feel safe. Victims of Crime will no longer take my calls because his sentence has expired and I can’t get any information from the Department of Home Affairs about why he no longer has these restrictions. It is going to effect my daughters life forever and now we have to take into account the fact that she can’t even have a Facebook page in her name without having to worry. I know about privacy settings etc but this is more than just a Facebook page, in this digital age he can follow her life. She is 16 years old and shouldn’t have to hide. Apologies for the hysterical mother style of the post but it just doesn’t seem fair. I really need to know who I can contact to find out why this has happened and what we can do find out how to get these restrictions put back in place submitted by /u/ecilamecila to r/AusLegal [link] [comments]

  • Anyone else want anon group therapy to get over a breakup?
    by /u/textualhealing123 on December 2, 2018 at 21:03

    Latest Update: The anon support group app is now live! You can get access to it here Hey everyone, I'm a software engineer by profession and recently went through a break up. I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in forming an anonymous chat support group? Think of it like an anonymous Facebook or Whatsapp group with 7-10 other people who have either recently been through a breakup or are contemplating one. The group is capped at 10 people max so you actually get to know everyone in your group and can support each other. You could choose which group you are part of based on age and location so you're with people who you can relate to. Sort of like an Alcoholics Anonymous but for breakups.. I know this sub and a discord (and many others like it exist) but I would prefer a more intimate, smaller group where we could actually get to know other people who are going through similar stuff. Heck we could all potentially make some friends out of it.. Just wondering if anyone else would be interested? I could build something out pretty quickly that would place us in groups of 7-10 people based on various topics (breakups, divorce, anxiety, depression, family illness etc) where we could chat/support each other anonymously. Let me know if you are interested in the comments below or via PM. If enough people express interest, I'll build this for us. EDIT - since a few have reached out to tell me about the whatsapp and discord group: I think the problem with Whatsapp and Discord groups are: 1) not anonymous - i don't want my cell phone number out there 2) huge - Guessing this whatsapp group and discord have 100's of people? it can feel a bit impersonal 3) no sorting criteria - You can't choose who is in the whatsapp group with you. I'm a bit older and I don't necessarily want advice from a teenager. similarly a teenager might not want advice from me. IT IS LIVE AND RUNNING! If you want access you can get it here. Alternatively please PM me or leave a comment below - I'll follow up via PM. submitted by /u/textualhealing123 to r/BreakUps [link] [comments]
