COVID as the "only" pandemic in peoples' lives (and the gay community)

2022.01.26 17:03 ManicMath COVID as the "only" pandemic in peoples' lives (and the gay community)

I have been listening to a lot of people talk about the effects of COVID and burn out. One thing consistently rubs me the wrong way.
People talk as if COVID has been the only pandemic in their life. WTF. Sometimes, I want to scream. I get they are stressed and probably not at their best and not thinking of others. And, I think most of us here have lived for 4 decades in the setting of a pandemic--the HIV pandemic. Even if we don't have HIV, it is still there--need for PrEP, condoms, testing, anxiety about sex as a potential mortal threat especially early in the pandemic.
In a way, I feel familiar with living in a pandemic. Wearing a mask is not all that different than wearing a condom. Being with someone you love has the potential to transmit a serious infection. Debating wearing masks post-vaccination parallels the idea of debating condom use after HAART and now PrEP. (I am not taking a political position here, just drawing parallels between the two).
I feel upset and a little pissed off (and probably also sad) about the lack of awareness of how HIV has impacted gay, drug-using, African, and other communities.
Does anyone else feel the same way? Or have other ideas/feelings?

I have a 2020 Rex and my android auto starts and stops randomly on my phone, galaxy note 8. Does anyone else have this issue? I think it's either the cable or phone but could it be the car?

2022.01.26 17:03 Jinxletron Tradesmen did terrible job of staining my elderly mum's deck/stain on house/ruined furniture, six weeks later still no resolve. Options?

Hello people.
At the end of November my mum who is in her seventies, had some work done by the guys that do her garden. They were to stain the deck and re-stain the garden furniture. Shortly before the work was done, my dad passed away. For context, he dealt with "all this sort of thing" so mum is utterly lost.
They water blasted the furniture, which now has chunks of wood missing. The stain coat is patchy and uneven.
The deck stain (brown) is splashed all up the sides of the (cream) house. They didn't mask anything off, and it's all around the deck edge - not just one "oops". (I think they thought they'd just wipe it off the house afterwards??). The deck also keeps having white grainy patches show up when it's dry, they won't scrub off.
Mum has unfortunately already paid the bill. She had a friend of hers over to take a look at she thought she might be making a fuss, he told her she might need to have the entire house repainted and to contact her insurance company, which she did. The insurance company will pay out, but the excess is $500 which clearly mum shouldn't have to pay. There has been minimal effort on the gardener's post to do anything - I know he's been once with something to try and remove the stain, to no effect.
Apparently the deck itself and deck furniture isn't covered by insurance (?) So we will need to get someone in to re-coat the deck, if that is possible, to solve the white patchiness.
I don't see why he shouldn't claim on his own liability insurance for this? Not only was the work an unsatisfactory standard, but the furniture is damaged and so is the house. I feel like they just keep fobbing mum off, it's been nearly two months now. Sadly I'm not local so can't always be there when things are happening.
I wanted to write them an email giving them seven days to propose a solution, otherwise we will proceed with the insurance claim and pursue them for the $500 excess (and the cost of replacing the deck furniture?). And for correspondence to be through me in writing and not mum.
Mum's really upset about the whole thing and still mentally reeling from dad's death. I don't want to make things worse!
Help! Thanks

2022.01.26 17:03 rikswift123 3-5: Cargo Uplifter in 85 cycles (no GRAs). New record!

Imgur link though all gifs are added below.
One cycle save on my old solution by taking four extra blocks on the first two input runs. It is incredible just how much this simple change ruins everything.
The answer to all problems is to throw blocks at them. Lots of boring micro-management to make sure everything is where it needs to be. I won't go on, there's nothing all that interesting about this one!

At least the 5 to 6 cycle regulator on the far right is pretty cool.
You can almost see what's going on from here!
Exactly twice the block count to save 1/3 of a second. Twenty hours well spent...

2022.01.26 17:03 Pandoras_Parabox psilocybin micro dosing for stress. How long to feel a difference?

I’ve just started micro dosing psilocybin in the form of Liberty cap mushrooms. I started off with 5 shrooms 3 days ago and was surprised to actually feel pretty high off them so today after 3 days I’ve reduced the dose to 2 shrooms and I could only just feel them. I’ve been suffering with stress for the last 2 years after having to work in the NHS through the pandemic. How long will it take for me to feel the benefits of micro dosing psilocybin? Thank you
